Someone got a hair cut

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Ottawa

Sometimes a good haircut can really change things around, don’t you think?

My own hair appointment isn’t until August. I needed a new place to go so I took it to Facebook (crowdsourcing for the win!) where I received many suggestions but Mint Hair Studio won out. Woot!

Other exciting things:

  • The girls and I placed a large order of temporary tattoos from Tattly.com and are anxiously awaiting their arrival. Eep!
  • Speaking of deliveries, did you know that you can order stamps from Canada Post and have them delivered to your door for free? (That is, if you spend more than $25, which is easy to do.) I have a reason for a big stamp order, but more on that later. The girls and I (Ok, maybe just me) are pretty excited about it.
  • We received a lovely Edible Arrangement from a Fishbowl reader yesterday. It was such an unexpected surprise. (Thank you WL! I tried emailing you but I’m not sure if you received my note.) You know what’s interesting… how quickly everyone ate it all up.
  • For some reason, lots of folks seem to be reading this archived post about Lusk Falls Trail in Gatineau right now, perhaps looking for more information about it. My advice: you may feel like you want to die halfway up to the fire tower but it’s totally worth it. DO IT. And bring the kids.
  • Don’t forget to enter this Saunders Farm giveaway! To summarize: You can win tickets so you can work up and appetite in the mazes and on the jumping pillows and then sit down for a delicious dinner of locally farmed goods. Heaven.On.Earth.

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.
