December things

I had wanted to revisit my bucket list, but I ran out of time.  Holidays call....such a hard life.
So instead, why not hop over to the Blended Blog where some of us wrapped up our favourite posts from the month.  Also- if you're interested, Monday, Jan 4th will be December in numbers link up.

Anyway, about today's post.. hubby had a funny conversation with Willis the other night and well, his cuteness rules above all.  (Dan's not Willis') (Wait, that's the wrong way).
This is something I want to remember.

A little background first  My husband and his brothers work for Skipthedishes which is also a company they (mostly Josh and Chris) created.  You can read about their recent awesomeness here.  Willis likes to say he works for them because once when they were just starting out and Josh lived at our place and ran the company out of our basement, Willis delivered flyers for him.  He also made a commercial for Josh's entertainment.

Anyway, Willis had a great time catching up with both Josh and Chris over the holidays and well, this conversation ensued......

From Dan:

As I was putting Willis to bed tonight, he asks me...

W: Dad.  When should I come to the office?  Josh said I could work full time for Skip.  Maybe I can do some of the work from home?

So I hand Willis my phone so he can call Josh himself while I fix one of his broken (already) Christmas gifts.  I get back to his room just as he's hanging up the phone.  Willis was all pumped up, so these mostly came rapid fire and I can't even recall the order he said them, but some of the lines I recall...

W: Josh told me all about what you, Chris, Josh and Jeff do.  He says Chris makes it, you build it, and Josh and Jeff do the restaurants and stuff.

W: I'm going to get paid in pizza!

W: In 2 or 3 years I get to make a trip to Winnipeg so that I can make a couple phone calls and work with all the teams.

W: I get to be your boss on Sundays.  And I can be Chris' boss about once a month I think.

And he finishes it all off with:

W: Whew.  That was a long interview!

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 …
