The day we "met"

I talked last week about wanting to relive the days we introduced our babies to our family/friends or met new babies.
Upon thinking about it, there are a few more days I would love to relive that aren't baby related.
One of the big ones that come to mind is the day that Dan and I "met" again and what an appropriate day for me to tell you about it as today is the 13th anniversary of that occasion.

You see, Dan and I always knew each other- we went to the same school our entire lives.  In fact, our lives were very intertwined from the beginning with our brothers, Rob and Chris, being in the same grade and good friends.  Plus PA isn't a huge place, so you know people.
So when I "met" Dan 13 years ago on that fateful weekend, I already knew everything I needed to know about him.

I've blogged about that weekend before here and here and won't go into the happenings as much as those posts cover it.

Instead, today I want to share something that I had completely forgotten about.  13 years ago when we met, I didn't have a camera or a video camera and didn't have a lot of pictures of us, so when we were approaching our 1 year date-iversary, I made a storybook that retold our meeting from my perspective so that I would never forget the details.  (Looking back on the quality of this book, I wish I would have none of Shutterfly and done this up properly) (Ah well)

Happy Danniversary, babe!

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 …
