Happy 7th Birthday, Willis!

Oh, my little boy, how I love you so.

My favourite things about you are:
- how much you show your love for your sister
- how you hug Addy and Kinsey whenever you see them, even when you don't want to. Okay, sometimes you don't and then Kinsey cries, but you still tell you her love her.
- you still cuddle me and when I asked you this week how old you'll be when you'll stop, you said 9. then 10. then 13 and giggled.
- you are still so much the little boy that made us parents.  You will still drool occasionally (we did use to call you Willis Drools Simair) and you still go ballistic, jumping up and down when playing anything. That includes throwing paper into a fire. Pyro.
-you are learning and trying to deal with your emotions when you get upset, which is no easy feat.
-you adore your family and extended family and STILL talk about your second cousins Jesse and Noah.
- you are sensitive and kindhearted and you were so excited to see Mme. Marsh this week.

You are my little man-cub and I love every little bit of you.  Happy Birthday, my boy.

The moment we met you.....

our 8 lbs, 4 oz little man

Aunty Kyla saw you first, the moment you came, she was right at my side, helping me with your Dad
Your Grandparents were impatiently waiting in the room next door

We spent the day before you birthday watching old videos.  You grinned the entire time you watched the video I made for you when you turned one.  I can't believe I didn't have this one uploaded. So here you go- one of my first videos!

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....

Anyway, I'm's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it.'s sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
