Wonderfully lovely Friday

I'm really excited for this link up mostly because of the awesome people I've met recently in the blog world...who would have thought that blogging would become such a big part of my day???? I'm an introvert, aren't I? So how about we end off this lovely back to school week with 5 things you may not know about me and while I'm rambling about the awesomeness of the new people in my life, why don't I make it the 5 thingsyoumaynotknowaboutme but blog related.

 #1- It was only probably a year ago that I started even reading other people's blogs or even thought that I should branch out. I was happy with status quo, just doing my thang, sharing my story. Then somehow I found Shay's blog, then Shaeffer's, then Alison's and then it just snow balled from there. What's with all the Texan bloggers, by the way??

 #2- I have moments where I'm completely invigorated and motivated and have tons of ideas of what I could do with my blog, but then those moments are usually followed by fear and questioning and then I usually just don't do anything about it.

#3- I have a huge fear of failure/rejection, clearly, which most times keeps me from doing things that I dream of doing.

#4- I usually have 20 draft posts lined up and planned or an entire month in advance. I have been writing on weekends when I'm footloose and fancy free and then I schedule them for the week so the only thing I think about is reading other blogs and commenting. That will change now that my worklife has changed.

#5- There are a good handful of special people in my life who blog. I love being able to learn that much more about my friends like: Christy, Carmen, Jyl, Jordan and Alynne. My brother also has a blog, which will likely confuse you. Did you know that the originals who inspired me to start were Carmen, Jyl and Christy?

 Well that's it, that's all.

 Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. I'm envious of your organization!!!!!!!! I WISH I had posts organized so I could just read and comment when I have time in the evenings.
    I am totally the same, I get super excited and motivated and then I never get around to actually writing it.

  2. Ahhhh chucks. I'm flattered. As you probably guessed, I knew most of these about you. I should after knowing you for 30 years!

  3. I love everything about your blog! I agree, there are so many bloggers from Texas - do they have extra time down there or something? I need to get more organized. I have lots of blog posts written, but then I end up doing something else and I'm up until the wee hours!

  4. My goal is always to have posts lined up and then it just doesn't happen. I'm amazed that you are that productive!! Don't be afraid, friend and when you are let people know who can help encourage you. You are pretty amazing!!

  5. Awesome series!! I need to be more organized when it comes to blogging! I have a few draft posts I'm working on that should've been published What i wore this Summer! HA!! Looking forward to reading more the of Lifestyle Sistas Posts!

  6. I love the blogosphere! I've met so many incredible women and become real life friends with many. I've even went on vacations and stayed at bloggers' homes.

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 …
