A whole lot of randomness on my brain, so why not spew it out here?

 I lack inner discipline. I start off doing a project then get bored at the end of it and don't make it as awesome as it could be. For example- the Amazing Race video. I wanted to have Willis host it all and explain the legs of the race, but I burned out. Also? Same goes with fitness. I start off awesome then end up sabotaging myself.

I think I still have a 13 year old rebel living inside me. Sometimes I like to shut my phone (aka lifeline) off and avoid contact and responsibility.  This mostly happens after I've run myself down or am not getting enough sleep.  Although, little happens when I get enough sleep regardless.  Ideally I get 8-10 hours to feel great.

 I strongly dislike spelling errors. Especially when they are in the public eye/done by companies. My thought is that if you're too lazy to spell check a sign or what not, then you'll be too lazy to do your job. I even hide "friends" on Facebook who can't spell. If I miss a spelling error on my blog and find it later, I go back and correct it.  My eyes are constantly analyzing anything with words.  Books included.

I won't vote for a political party who spends their (possessive, belonging to them) whole political campaign insulting the other party. I actually don't care for anything political, so I'm not sure why I've included this point.

June is a big month.  I have a trip planned to Texas to see some special ladies, my Pa turns 60, my Ma will be fully retired and Lucia turns 5.  No more crazy parties planned though, I'm taking it easy on that front.  We're facing doing an MRI on Lucy Goosy to see where the growth hormone deficiency developed....or something like that.  All I know is that it stresses me out and I may need to bring out Big Red.  But it needs to be done.

Summer is such a wonderful time of year.  I can't wait until school is out and we can play all day and chill all night.  I love being commitment free.  Also, the kids got a trampoline for the birthdays (early present) this year and it's all they want to do.

Its and it's is probably the hardest grammar rule for me.  I have to sit and think or look it up every. single. time.  Same goes for who's vs. whose.

After taking a good 3 weeks off of anything exercise, I'm feeling healthy enough to start a new program.  My knee is still giving me problems, so I'm going to go easy on the running and have started the Bikini Body Mommy program with alternating runs/yoga days.  We'll see how this goes. It feels good to be active again and it's (stopped for 10 seconds to make sure it was right) crazy how quickly my body can feel strong again. Yay for muscles.

That's it for today.  Come back on Friday for a linkup with the Style Me Bloggers.  We're sharing our Summer Travel Plans and Recommends.....

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 …
