A weekend without kids aka, what did I used to do with my time beforethem!??!?!?

Dan and I spent a wonderful weekend together while the Grandparents/Kyla/Brother Rob looked after my minions in PA.  Brother had come down for the weekend to spend some time with Grandma (the original plan was for mom and dad to come here and watch them during Dan's Cmas party, things had to change when Grams worsened).
So quality time in PA it was for them.

Meanwhile, back in Saskatoon, Dan and I had time together to just be us.
We had Dan's Christmas party on Friday night, for which I got a sparkly new dress (who doesn't feel awesome when you look awesome?)
We even got to stay at the castle on the riverbank for the night, which was handy as it was right across the street from the Saskatoon Club where the party was held, and super easy for me to run home in stocking feet at 2 am....because, you know.


I love getting ready when you have all the time in the world.  I went with the blue was just too perfect to pass up.  I accented the beautiful blues in the dress with a sparkly headband and bold red lips.  Dan gave me an early Cmas/anniversary present to finish off the outfit, and well...I was floored. My hubby is great a giving gifts, but he may have pulled off the best gift yet.  Almost better than the year he sent Jordan and I to Toronto to watch the Jays play.  See here and here Yup, this year was special. (And yes, it was the shoes...a pair of Louboutins!!)

The ensemble

Red Lips (Mac's Russian Red, but the key to keeping them on all night was Bite Beauty's Line & Define Lip Primer)

The red soled shoes I have been coveting forever!!!!

Ready to party until 2 am. Yup. 2. 
 So at the party I also was hypnotized. That was....interesting.   The best part was dancing to high school songs all night long, with no cares in the world.  It was a really great night.

Saturday was spend doing some videography and then it was dinner and a movie with Dano.  We ate greasy burgers and fries and saw Horrible Bosses 2.
I love getting to spend time with my hubby, it reminds me why I married him....that man can keep me smiling :)  Everyone needs time to reconnect!
This is how we spend our quiet time: he read and I did video work

5 guys burger. Yum!

Have a great week!


  1. That dress is GORGEOUS on you! Sounds like such a fun weekend - so nice to have time for just the two of you. Okay, you know I'm a little slow - was the present the shoes? Because WOW!

    1. Ha- you would be the second asking the same question. So I reread my post and I clearly didn't word it clearly...silly me. It was shoes.

  2. Never mind...I just re-read the post and realized it was the shoes...LUCKY GIRL!!!!

  3. You look gorgeous!!! I am envious of your weekend with your hubby. How fun!!!

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 …
