Nostalgia 1

Today begins a week long series (otherwise known as a blog-cation for me) that will lead up to a new linkup that I'm going to feature on my blog every last Monday of the month.

So for this week I'm going to feature some great snapshots from my plethora of previous posts with a chance to show a part of my life that seems so long ago.  I have been blogging for 6 years and have some great memories hidden in the deep confines of this blog. Actually, kidding, they are in the labels on the right sidebar.  So feel free to join up with me on August 31st and throwback an old post that you're proud of or share some great memories!!!

A repost from 3 years ago today:  July 27, 2013

While going for a drive one night, Dan had turned back in the car and was checking out Willis' legs, informing Willis that he was going to be hairy like his Uncle Rob, to which Lucia replies: me too!

Dan was reviewing french numbers with Willis one night before bed and he asked him what ten was in French.  Willis replies : ette.  Hmmmmmm.....Keep in mind that Willis' current favourite song is un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq, six, sept, violet, violet.  I think I must've learned that one myself in kindergarten.  So he has quickly caught on and sings it happily around the house and obviously he's thinking while he does it.

Over the weekend Willis and Lucia were playing in the playhouse and suddenly Willis started freaking out because there was a bug.  He HATES bugs.  Especially spiders.  He quickly pointed out the disgusting creature to Lucia, who was intrigued.  He then picks her up and she swats the nasty spider out of the house.
And that's what I call teamwork.

Willis was driving with Dan to drop the dogs off at the kennel.  Willis tells his dad that when he gets older, instead of sharing the car with the family, it will be his (congrats Willis - you just selected your beautiful 14 year old car you'll get on your 16th birthday!).  He then informs Dan that when they get older, both he and Lucia will have kids of their own.  Willis asks if he has to marry a girl or a boy to which Dan replies it's up to him.  Willis says "I think I'll marry a girl.  And we will have a baby boy.  I'll call him Dave."  Just a matter of fact.

And because I've ran out of stories, some cute pictures to end the week will have to do!

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 …
