Valentine's decor

To get through our long/cold/dreary/snowless?/ winter this year, the kids have been on holiday countdown. Which means that they count the days until Spring/Summer/Any sign of life by the holidays that fall between Christmas and the sweet, sweet golden rays of the hot summer sun.

So, Valentine's Day has been on their radar for a good month already.
Which also means that Willis has already handmade and hand wrapped the Valentines for his school friends and is requesting that I get  on the ball and get some treats for them.

To get in with the festivous mood, I did manage to decorate the house for the day of love.

To see last year's decor.....visit here

Now just to get the candy for the boycub's Valentines (and not eat it all first)

Linking up today with The Hill Collection and Rachel


  1. Now you can come and make my house look festive. I love your house and your decorations for each holiday :)

  2. Your son's handmade valentines are adorable. I love every single one of your decorations. I have nothing up because apparently i'm lame in this area - maybe you need to visit and help me decorate:)!

  3. Man I don't think I have a single Valentine decoration in my house! lol! I take that back...Xavier just brought home a finger paint picture of pink hearts! :)
    Looks great friend!

  4. I love the "All you need is love" sign! I am so far behind in decorations this year--ugh! Loving the motivation I got from your post though 😀

  5. Beautiful!
    I love the hearts on your mantel <3 <3

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 …
