March in numbers

I had so much fun doing this post last month, that I'd thought I'd give you my quirky recap of March too.  Read February in numbers here


10 episodes of friends (a mix of Season 1/2) watched
3 venti skinny vanilla lattes consumed (I feel like this should be more)
8 pounds lost since January (but sadly it keeps fluctuating between 6-8, I say 8 to make myself feel better)
18 km ran (6 runs) then I hurt my knee....that's 7 km and 2 runs more than last month.
9 Yoga videos done (I'm redoing the 30 day challenge with Adriene)  I've actually had to get in a new groove, because of my bumknee.   Each day during the week I do Jillian Michaels' 30 day challenge along wtih a yoga session with Adriene and then on the weekend I do whatever I want. Like go for a run, which I did outside for the first time this year with Willis on the weekend!
1 massage for my shoulder/rotator cuff issues.  Which did wonders, in case you were curious.
4 days alone in my home.  That's 96+ hours of just me time while Dan took the kids to Winnipeg. And it was glorious!  I. Got. So. Much. Done.
4 books read: Lessons from Madame Chic, Anne of Green Gables #1, Anne of Green Gables #2 and What Alice Forgot, but we'll talk about that on Friday when we do a Style Me Bloggers "I like big books" linkup.
1,465 days together for my brother and his girlfriend until he proposed. Yay! We love Jen and can't wait to start dreaming about their wedding.

11 episodes of Pretty Little Liars I binge watched so I could watch the big "reveal" during the Season Finale last week. Which was horribly disappointing.
16 hours spent videographing.
28 is how old my brother in law, Josh turns today. Happy Birthday, Joshy!
57.20$ Spent at Sephora (mascara, nail polish, why can't I remember the third thing, there was something else in that bag....) (oh yeah, it was for Candace)
50$ish dollars spent on clothes (one tulle skirt purchased-thanks for the inspiration Jenny, one pair of flare jeans and one floral tanktop....price is so low because of Target leaving Canada) (yay 70% off)
143.85$ spent at Simons, and then returned because the beautiful sweater dress didn't fit :(
48.27$ spent at Simons on cute pajama bottoms and underwear.

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 …
