Nostalgic Series 4

These Mondays are great for me as they give me a chance to look back on what I've done on this blog and appreciate the little things that I'm certain I would have forgotten by now.  So yay for another point for the benefits of oversharing on the interwebs.  You can read my past Nostalgic Posts here

Today's throwback is to Feb 28th, 2011.  You can read the original post and comments here

10 things I currently am adoring about Willis:
  • The way he insists we 'shake on it' when we're making a deal.
  • How he selectively pronounces the 'l' or 't'. Kyla. Wucia. Dad wook!
  • His goofy face- see picture. 
  • How he insists on dressing himself in the am with the door shut even though he ends up just in his boxers 10 minutes later.
  • How, when playing Mario Kart he steers with his whole body, arms straight.
  • How he offers us everything.  Example:  Dad: Willis, I haven't seen that movie.  Will :Well, I'll take you.  Dan: Willis, I don't have ski-pants.  Willis: I'll buy you some.
  •  How he knows how to Skype people and does so randomly when I'm not in the room.
  •  How he finds it necessary to play show and tell the MINUTE you see him for the first time.  "Wook at my new toy." or "I have foot muscles, wook".
  • How he insists on me smelling his hands after the bathroom to ensure he used soap when washing.
  • How he stealthily starts to sneak away and hide the problem when he knows he did something bad.  Don't even ask Dan about this week's PoopGate.

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 …
