Family weekends

It was so nice to be home with the kids this week.  Don't get me wrong, I love the travel and the adventure but I'm such a homebody that I was craving my little piece of quiet out on the acreage with my kiddos.  It was the Family Day long weekend in Saskatchewan so we had a true family weekend.  Mom and Dad came up to spend time with the kids, we hosted the fam for Sunday night meal and we went out and had fun with the kids.  My favourite was going out to the movies with all the minions- we saw Lego Batman and I think everyone walked away with sore cheeks from all the laughing.  It was also a beautiful day and it made me happy to ditch my parka and wear this newfangled, fun asymmetrical hoodie provided by RoseGal.  It was like wearing a big blanket during the movies...why are movie theatres so chilly?

It has been one of those weird in between February breaks for the kids where it's so nice that the snow has almost all melted but you can't do anything outside because it's so messy.  Sadly there isn't skating or skiing anywhere, so the kids end up playing in the ditch in the last remaining snow pile making a very sad, very small and very melty snowmidget.  I have lost track of all the times I've had to vacuum up the dirt mess in the entry because mud.   We've actually spent most of the week over in Winnipeg while Dan worked and the weather here has been just as wonky that we couldn't do most of the fun outdoor events they have for le Festival de Voyageur.  But we did get great visits in with the family- more on that next week.

For now, I shall be grateful instead, because it is a glorious feeling to just put on a bunnyhug (that's Saskatchewan talk for hoodie) and head out for the day.  I'll embrace the nice weather because I'm sure there'll be a crazy snow storm in March. Or May.  Or maybe even June.  And if that happens, I know what comfy pink hoodie I'll be reaching for- despite my husband calling me a pink Jedi.

Have a great weekend!

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 …
