May in numbers

Shoes to Shiraz

I'm pleased to be working this month with my blogger friends, Carrie and Lana.  Make sure you check out their blogs and see what they put together for their month recap:
 A Lovely Little Wardrobe | Two Teens and Their Mama

As for me, it's another edition of my month in numbers.  You can see what I did in February,  March and April

3 caesars drank.  It is my drink of the summer, or at least tonight.  Oops.

2 batches of pumpkin used- I have a serious overload of frozen pumpkin from the fall and need to get through it before fall comes around again.  This month we made pumpkin bread, pumpkin oatmeal muffins and chocolate pumpkin cookies.
2 Starbucks- both in the presence of good people.  One with Kyla on our pedicure date and the other on a playdate with Sara and Candace.
3 grammar graphic tees bought from RedBubble.  I have yet to receive them.
3 fashion graphic tees from T&J designs.  Also have yet to be received.
1 tuxedo vest...I'm really loving the black waistcoat styled vest circa the 90s...I'll have to do a blogpost on that once I get them
1 tulle skirt still not received from an order in March, which was finally shipped.
2 pairs of soft pants, one from Costco, the other H&M...stay tuned for a future fashion post.
4 new tops from Nordstrom and H&M
3 pairs of shoes from my favourite shoe store, DSW.  It's hard not to leave that store without multiple boxes.

So clearly I overshopped this month.  My goal will be to spend close to nothing on clothing in June.
3 failed attempts at Old Navy that had to be returned.  The romper is just not for me.
0 attempts at running.  I'm having old lady body issues, first my knee and now my ankle is having issues after this brick fell on it.  No fun.  I will never take being active for granted anymore.

3.5 books read : Husband's Secrets, (LOVED!)  Very Good Lives (LOVED!) & Dream Lover (was disappointed)  The other .5 is the book that I'm currently reading, By The Water's Edge.

2 ball games played by me, with 6 at bats and 0 strikeouts, but also 0 balls thrown.  I'm dealing with rotator cuff issues and am currently in physio, or aka, Buffalo on a rehab assignment. Ya for old lady body.
1234 kms travelled to Calgary and back.  Come back on Monday to see what we were up to.

16 days working out using the Bikini Body Mommy online.  Me liking so far.
3374 pageviews
50%- amount my job load has increased for next year
15,865 the most steps taken in a day according to my FitBit
47,76 km walked in the 2 weeks I had the Fitbit
3,944  steps during my least active day.
1 succulent made with my lovely sister.

What did you do this month that you're proud of?  Let's up your post!

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 …
