Wow! What an incredible evening spent with Vancouver's Top Mom Bloggers. The Annual event was hosted at the beautiful University Women's Club of Vancouver where I got to rub shoulders with familiar faces and made a few new connections throughout the evening. The glasses were flowing with wine as these mamas enjoyed an evening out to share their stories with one another and celebrate their achievements. We were also treated to a fashion show by Monique of Wallis Evera, outfits worn by many of the bloggers in attendance. Check out a few images from the evening!
DRUMROLL PLEASE!!! I'm so excited to announce my girl Emily is officially selling her homegrown veggies and florals, all which have been an intensive labour of love! After recently setting up at a few of the local markets, she pitched her stand up at home to take part in Experience Delta's Culinary Farm Tour. She collaborated with One20 Public House for a true Farm to Table experience for all those coming through. Chef Michael Ferreira created a vegan taco, exclusively using the vegetables grown from the farm which included standouts of a guacamole alternative using minted mashed peas and deliciously crispy garlic chips. In addition to her produce and floral stand and the delicious tacos, her two giant rows of sunflowers were open to the public for picking!
Come out this weekend for a break from the city, pick up some fresh produce, grab a bouquet of fragrant sweet peas and bring home as many giant sunflowers as you can carry! Feel free to bring a blanket and some snacks for a cozy picnic, there will be a lemonade stand set-up to wet your whistle!

Hope to see you this weekend!
October is here and Fall is in full swing with Thanksgiving around the corner this weekend! The Annual Harvest Festival here in Ladner celebrated its second year running a few weeks ago after 2013's successful first year. The Delta Firefighter's Charitable Society held its fundraiser at Greystone Stables, inviting the community to celebrate the harvest season while raising money for local charities and organizations in need
I had only heard about last year's Festival and was so excited when I was hired on to capture the evening's festivities. Guests signed in at the front and were greeted by handsome firefighter's serving appetizers. There were many ways of helping to raise money including a 50/50 draw, a Silent Auction, a mini Casino and mechanical bull!
Gigglebooth's hilarious photo booth provided additional entertainment
It's confirmed. Next year when i am no longer pregnant, I will be giving this bull a ride!
The Joe Fernandes band played country tunes all night while guests danced
Down at Delta's golf course Kings Links by the Sea, legendary snowboarder Devun Walsh hosted The 3rd Annual Devun Walsh Charity Classic Golf Tournament. With help from The KNOWSHOW, DC Shoes and The Source along with generous support from brand partners, local business associates and friends, the event was a success! Over $10,000 was raised for Canuck Place Children's Hospice.
Each participant registers for a full day that includes 18 holes of golf, a cart, lunch, dinner, refreshments, prizing and a shuttle to and from downtown Vancouver.
The Silent auction included amazing swag, everything from craft beers and wines to skateboarding and snowboarding gear, travel and camping gear, apparel, fine dining for two, a pretty stellar piece of art: a portrait of everyone's favourite actor, Bill Murray, and much more!
Many of the 90+ attendees participated in the Glass Breaking contest on the Driving Range
The guys took a break from their hard work for some beers and BBQ burgers.
Thank you to the boys at El Furniture Warehouse for the best burger this pregnant body has had all summer!
20 Teams grabbed their carts and headed off to their starting hole

The energy was fantastic. I was mistaken for thinking golf was boring, these guys were having a riot and all in the name of giving back generously!
The Registration Tent was rearranged for dinner and what event wouldn't be complete without some lovely flowers from the girls at Our Little Flower Company from right here in Delta!
Everyone piled their plates and sat down to enjoy the evening's festivities.
I can't think of a better way to wind down summer than with a bunch of dudes raising money for a good cause… and having an absolute blast!
