The week that was.

I read something earlier last week by a blogger and I didn't agree with what she said at all.  She wrote about how she doesn't read other blogs because of the compare game, where you get caught up in what others are doing and that detracts from what you're doing.

Reading blogs have been the complete opposite experience for me.  Instead of worrying about Keeping up with the Kardashians or whomever the Royal Family of blogging is, I am busy connecting with other women and expanding my circle.
In the blogworld I have found kindred spirits (stole that one from Carrie's post somewhere last week) I have made friendships with people I may never meet.  I have been inspired, motivated and pushed to become a better person.  Blogging is about branching out and sharing a piece of you.  Whether you are writing for your family and friends, (which gives them a deeper look at your life and makes you feel supported) or maybe you're writing to grow your numbers and make some money, )in which case you need the support of other bloggers.)
It's all about the connections, the relationships and you guessed it, the support, for me.  That's why I love blogging and I will continue doing it and by the way, thanks for all your support!

Now on to what I wore- which, by the way I have about another week or so worth of shoes to go through and then I think I'm over taking my picture daily.  Mostly because of the lack of sunshine in the mornings or when I get home from work.  Time to switch things up and it's my blog so I can do what I want. I could even post a random picture.

Friday was comfycozy day at school and I'm not going to miss a chance to wear Lulu's to work.  So I went with this fun BlueJays' shirt that Kyla found online.

Saturday night I went out with our Splurge group to the Bon Temps Café to have some drinks and listen to a band play. This is what I wore.

Monday at work.  I nearly broke my leg on the deck taking this picture...little did I know that it was coated in ice.

Tuesday for Remembrance Day...minus the poppy which NEVER STAYS ON

Thursday was a PD day and no kids, hence the jeans.  This is my fave sweater.  Ever.  Which is still available on ModCloth, here.

The whole ensemble, dressed for some BEAUTIFUL November weather.

Again, I can't begin to tell you how wonderful our weather has been.   Can you spot the flock of geese flying in the field by our house?

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 …
