Delectable Drinks

I'm back again on a Tuesday to share a part of our online supper club...this time "drinks".  I'm not too sure why I signed up for drinks to be honest because I'm not fancy.  I can crack a beer and cork wine and drink it like a pro.  But for the sake of why the hell not, I decided to start coming up with a collection of drinks I could use over the holidays whilst we have company.  You can follow me on Pinterest if you want to see what I'm curating.  Since I had some pumpkin defrosting in the fridge, I decided this to test a pumpkin drink, so we did the Hot Buttered Pumpkin Rum.

It took  me maybe 5 minutes to make the butter concoction (which now sits in the fridge until I want another one) (which is right meow).  It was also perfect for a -40 degree night by the fire (which also happens to be right meow too).

What are you drinking over Christmas?

Hop on over to Sarah's blog to see what kind of easy peasy appetizer she put together for us.

    You do know I am about salivating on the screen. YOU know my love of pumpkin and cocktails and add rum and I'm in heaven. Printing this off and making for an after work drink tonight, lol!!!

  2. Oh gawd!! This looks beyond yummy!!

  3. oh my!!! IS it too early to have this fantastic concoction?! it's 9 am here;-P

  4. There is a soft spot in my heart for the captain. We used to be pretty serious about each other :P.

  5. Yum! Maybe I'll surprise my family and make a holiday drink this year!

  6. Annnnddd? Was it good? I have some pumpkin in my fridge and my hubby loves rum! If you say it was good we are giving it a try!

  7. We are pretty simple at our house, too - beer and wine. And, all the liquor we use for cooking... Pumpkin and rum sounds good...

  8. OH simple and easy and you get to use the gallons of pumpkin you have win-win! :)

  9. Oh my sweet goodness, this sounds amazing! I think I need to make this ASAP!

  10. I'm a beer and wine girl too (as you well know) BUT I think I could make some room for this in my life... if YOU were here and making it for me ;)

  11. Printing this off to make for myself over the holidays. I get to the liquor store and don't have my recipes, can't open Pinterest on my phone and wind up buying the same old bottle of Bailey's. This will be a refreshing change.

  12. I suppose I should have included my review of it too. Le oops. If you like a hot toddy then you'll like this. It's a very cozy drink.

  13. I'm a wine girl too but I love a good cocktail once in awhile. This sounds perfect for a chilly evening!

  14. Hmmm....I'm intrigued by this, Deena! I'm usually just a wine girl, too, but occasionally I get fancy during the holidays. I may have to whip this up.

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 …
