Mommy Diaries: Sarah

Up today is my blog friend, Sarah who lives down in sunny California.
 I can't cook anything until the kitchen sink is spotless. Mostly our kitchen is clean, but we run the dishwasher before we go to bed, and sometimes there will still be dishes in the sink. So when I get up, before making anyone breakfast I have to unload and fill the dishwasher so everything is clean before I make a huge mess. The kitchen counters a totally different story :) Working on that.

The time that Baby Fox had a blowout diaper. I was sitting on the couch with him in my lap and he pooped and I felt this warm liquid and realized it was poop and not pee. I had to stand up, keeping my knees together because I didn't want poop to go everywhere, so I'm waddling to the bathroom yelling for Mr. to come help. Picture this: a Mom of a 3 week old, waddling to the bathroom with their newborn in an awkward position so that the poop doesn't continue to drip everywhere (think brand new couch and carpet!) At the time it was stressful, but the very next day we were laughing at the picture of me waddling with my knees touching all the way down the hall to the bathroom with the baby in arms.

I like to think that I throw some awesome parties. I love DIYing stuff for decorations, going around trying to put together the perfect party. Mr. says party week he totally loses me to the dark side because I get super anxious, some would say a little snippy and usually have last minute stuff to get done, but in the end it's always worth everyone having a great time and celebrating with family and friends.

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 …
