What I Wore this Week

OH friends, has Blue Jays' frenzy ever hit our home.  Okay, that's nothing really new.  We are always Blue Jay diehards.  I will thank my parents for that and my Grams (who was a huge Blue Jays fan) too.  Willis actually brings that up lots: Hey Mom, I bet Grams is happy the Jays are winning. 
Baseball is in our blood. 
In fact, I could do a whole post on what fanhood looked like for us in the past...when the last time we experienced postseason baseball (and won) was 22 years ago when we saw this:

Our adrenaline is pumping and we can't wait to cheer for our Jays! You can guarantee that we'll be following every game and making it a special experience. And you know what,  regardless how they fare, we will always be fans and won't ever get off that bandwagon.  We love our Jays and are just thrilled to be experiencing playoff ball! Except for one observation.  I miss the Canadian announcers on Sportsnet.  For some weird reason we have to listen to the Fox Sports guys and they are very annoying.   I may watch the remainder of the games on mute and listen to the Canadian Sportsnet announcers on the radio.  Super frustrating!

This week kicked my ass again, but I also figured out that it's really just Monday and Tuesday that leave me feeling extremely overwhelmed, so I'm going to make some adjustments so that I don't get to that point.  Hopefully that will make all my jobs more manageable.  One thing I do feel I have under control is my teaching costumes.  I love doing my makeup and hair in the morning and it's been especially fun picking out my costume for the day and shoes.  

This is what I wore ...... 

1) Working with Carrie, Casey and Whitney's Create28 for this outfit...the prompt was plaid.  This is my go-to plaid outfit.... I would have preferred to wear it with my nude flats but I'm wearing a different pair of shoes for as long as I can and I already wore those with my tulle skirt.

Had a gathering with the girls that night and look, Christy was wearing her plaid too!

This is Day 1 of the Fall Challenge look: tone on tone.  The scarf and jacket were way too hot for the I included my actual classroom look, in my actual classroom.  Pink blouse + Burgundy pants + floral scarf + gold shoes.  Minus the gold shoes because I actually don't have any. Gasp.

This Fall Challenge outfit called for boyfriend jeans, an orange sweater and leopard flats, so I had to do some adjusting for work. Also, I am very over leopard flats.  You'll have to wait until I do my October shoe review to get a peak at these shoes....they are the cutest!

Another Fall Challenge outfit: Long cardigan + Chambray Shirt + Plaid Scarf + Black Jeans + Riding Boots.  I don't have a chambray shirt that I like, but I do have a chambray sweater I love!

The last look is brought to you by PLAYOFF BASEBALL DAY!  It was actually blue day at school in honour of the Jays, so, as you can guess, I was thrilled to wear this.  Got this jersey in TO with's a Bautista if you're curious.

That's it, that's all!  I look forward to our Thanksgiving weekend spent with many special people.  We're hosting the first annual Friendsgiving one night and heading to my parents' for a day and then hosting Dan's family for another.  So it'll be busy, but it will also be beautiful.  I can't wait to show you what it looked like.    
Have a great weekend!

Linking up with Carrie, Casey and Whitney.

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 …
