5 Fraser Valley Theatres to Visit

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

One of my best memories from elementary school was the year every class had the chance to participate in the performance of the Annie musical. There was something to be said for the lights, the stage, the slightly-off-key choir and the camaraderie of everyone pulling together to make an unforgettable recital that had me hooked. While I soon realized that my inability to act prevented me from ever being a Broadway star, to this day I’m still inexplicably excited before the performance of live theatre.

Now, as the leaves fall and the rain starts to pour here in the lush Fraser Valley, the local theatre seems like a great idea.

Frugal Fun: Games Night In

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Social events certainly have a tendency of adding up quickly, especially if you enjoy regular evenings out with family and friends. Spending time with people you love is important, but if you aren’t careful, regular nights out on the town (wherever your destination) could leave you running short on your grocery money. Since this isn’t good for anyone, we’ve come up with a great Frugal Fun idea to help you continue being a social butterfly, without breaking the bank – plan a game night in! When’s the last time you took part in a game of Twister? We think however long ago it was – it was too long ago!

Not like they used to be, board games have changed a lot over the years. With the number of great party games on the market these days, a games night in is the perfect combination of casual dinner party interaction, laughter and a little dose of healthy competition.

A Day in the Snow at Hemlock Valley Resort

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

We felt the need to burn off a little steam and have some fun, so we headed up to visit our friends at Hemlock Valley Resort.

Hemlock Valley Resort is located about half an hour east of Mission, half an hour west of Harrison Hot Springs. From Harrison Mills you turn and drive up, up, way up the mountain (approximately 30 minutes). Winter conditions are often severe, so vehicles are required to carry chains. Check Hemlock’s road report before heading up.

What an absolute blast we had.
