A day in my life: weekend edition

Welcome to a day in my life on a weekend.  Thanks for coming over from Shaunacey's are now in Saskatchewan.  Tough to spell, easy to draw.

So this is what Saturday, January 23rd looked like for me:

9:30 wakeup.  Dan and I share sleep in mornings.  Typical sleep in is 830-9...930 makes it a REAL good day!

10:00 coffee and cyber catch up, blog work: I woke up to no kids or hubby in the house, Dan brought them to the Skip office to start assembling chairs.  building box forts.

Kids come home at 1030 because they couldn't get into skip.  Kids were not impressed.

1130- Lucia wants to go tobogganing.  I have yet to have breakfast. Ah well. Coffee does the job. Wait Lucia and Willis brought home some timbits and managed to leave me the crappy ones. Ah well, they will do.  For the record, I like sour cream glazed.

1130-1137 toboggan with Lucy and the dogs

Lunch- left over Mexican soup, Lucia's favorite new soup. (One of my recipes from my Food Goals'll have to wait to see it).  Wearing my weekend uniform: jeans and a comfy tee and sweater.

12:15- Time to get ready.  Lucy sometimes likes to play on the ground in my closet when I'm getting ready.  And then she likes to use my makeup.  Today I tried a foundation that I got as a sample from Sephora...I think it's going to be a keeper!

1230: bring Lucia to the SkiptheDishes office and trade kids so I can bring Willis to his basketball game.  Stay to help set up some new furniture.

2-3: Willis' basketball game.  His love the sport is give and was not so much love.

Head back to skip, switch kids so I can take Lucy to get groceries, plus also all Willis wants to do is set up Forklen Sndklfas or whatever the Ikea chair was called.

Lucy and I get takes what seems like forever and I tend to not have patience with dumb people in grocery stores. Or anywhere really.

Head home, make supper, which really means eat the sushi Lucia insisted we have for supper.  She also thought we needed a wrapper tray. And cream eggs.  Sheesh, that's what happens when you put her in charge of supper plans. Boys get home with KFC.  Cue my sister rolling her eyes and gagging.

I clean kitchen while Dan plays Lego with the kids. Which may sound like a bad trade off but I really love cleaning.  I'm strange. And should be locked up.

Prep the snack for my Monday's grade 11 final project viewing party.

Cuddle and read stories with Lucia.

Prep dessert for Sunday's feast...also having the two Simair brothers over so I need to make some fun things for them to test.

Google Hangout with Blog friends.

That's it.  I thought my Saturday would be way more uneventful, but putting this together made me think it was pretty decent.

Now on to Katie's house on Long Island for her tales of January 23rd.

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 …
