Edited to add: A Morning uploaded the segment to YouTube. You can watch it here. :)

Hello A Morning peeps! If you’re looking for the Shopping Embargo post, it’s right here. It’s an ongoing project which ends February 28, 2011. I’m logging all of my family’s purchases in the comment section at the bottom of that post. You can bookmark it and check back for updates to see how we’re doing.

If you’re looking for CheapEats Ottawa, here is the website for the book (you can order a copy right off the site), and the companion blog is here. We are starting work on a new edition for late 2011 and would LOVE to hear about people’s new finds and old favourites for consideration for the next edition. You can tell us about your favourite Ottawa cheap eat right here.

If you’re looking for my latest giveaway, it’s right here. Deadline for entry is tomorrow (Saturday the 22nd)!

Thanks for visiting!

I’m so pleased (and proud) of our bird feeders this year. They are attracting so many birds, most chickadees but we have a beautiful cardinal ‘couple’ who visit daily as well as one or two (not sure if its just one or two different ones) blue jays!!! I hadn’t seen a blue jay in several yrs so it was nice to know that our peanut feeder works.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
