This week in outfits

OH, it's been an emotional roller coaster of a week...all because of baseball, but it turned out favourable and was it ever cool to experience the ups and downs with Willis.  He did a lot of jumping in my arms during the deciding match on Wednesday, and wanting to cuddle when he was stressed out.  That may be my favourite memory of it all.  Or this:

Last night was parent teacher interviews, which always leaves me in a strange mix of emotions: I'm exhausted from talking and my cheeks are sore from smiling, but I'm also feeling refreshed and appreciated.  There are so many great families out there.  More on that next week, I think.  If I can find the energy.  You see, I'm getting that feeling of being stretched too thin again and although I do feel like I have finally figured out a routine of sorts, I'm still feeling like I'm not quite caught up.   I am still working on this.

Now how about some of my outfits for this week, which was up and down, a mélange of love and hate.

LOVED (Pros- it was Blue Jay blue and I got to wear a cozy sweater and jeans to work.  Cons- My necklace was too heavy)

KINDA LOVED (This is a weekend outfit, from the challenge which called for the plaid shirt dress.  I wore my floral shirt dress -but seriously, who would wear this as a dress.....- and I paired it with blue suede leggings which were freaking hot and made me sweat.  Pros- leggings are comfy and pretty cozy for turkey eating.  Cons- I didn't appreciate being sweaty before having the turkey sweats)

LOVED (This challenge outfit called for grey with burgundy and brown boots.  I didn't like how the brown boots looked with this dark grey, so I went with black.  Pros- the poncho is the coziest things around.  Cons- I feel matchy matchy and I don't like matchy matchy)

DISLIKED (patterned top + olive pants from the Fall Challenge.  These were just the wrong style pants for this outfit...too baggy or bulky for a flowy top.  Would have looked better with a skinny jean.  I should have just worn a cozy sweater like I felt like wearing.  Pros- I love this flowy, floral top.  Cons- I need to get my pants hemmed)

LOVED (The Fall Challenge called for the plaid shirt dress again, paired with leggings and I don't like wearing the same thing twice in a week. So I grabbed this striped dress I got last year at H&M but haven't worn since...yay for losing 10 lbs!  and I paired it with my WunderUnders from Lulu and Moto jacked from Joe Fresh.  Pros- I felt great and looked like fall.  Cons- I had to sit in this all day and night during Parent Teacher Interviews and started to hate the outfit because it wasn't pajamas)

I also wore my new glasses that I won in a giveaway from my blogger friend, Vanessa's blog.   They are from firmoo and I LOVE THEM!

That's it for tonight.  I need to get to bed.  Have a great weekend.

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 …
