Favourite Spring Activities

I had a really good post planned about my favourite Spring activities but then it started to snow and it made me want to scream. So instead of talking about the glories of spring cleaning, new sports and BBQs, I'm going to leave you with what it really looks like in Saskatchewan in April. Second winter. Taaaaa-daaaaaaa.

At least we can go snowboganning?

Actually- because of the beauty of photo organization and because the snow has got me in a ho-hum mood and made me lose my words...let's look back at Aprils of past.

    The snow is beautiful although not a beautiful as you! BUT I know, not in the sweet Springtime!!!

  2. Oh snow is so pretty but I'm ready for warmer temps!!!

  3. The view is so pretty! But yeah - I'm sure you're ready for some sun


  4. It is snowing here as I read this. Second winter here to as well! Home all afternoon and ready to catch up if you are.

  5. I spent the weekend in sunny California and then came home to the eleventy-billionth day of rain. I'm moving.

  6. I remember one of the worst blizzards ever happening in April when I was growing up in Iowa. I totally can relate to your frustration. C'mon Spring!!!

  7. Oh my goodness! I have to laugh a little at this post and then feel sorry for all the cold weather. At least you can biild an Easter snowman?

  8. ewwww snow, don't you dare bring that this way in May!!

  9. I love snow but never after February.

  10. We have the same crazy weather here in the Washington DC area. My FB memories all month have been "It's 80 degrees!" and then *Ugh, more snow!" Hang in there, someday you'll see the sun :)

  11. Definitely a kick to the gut when you think you're out of winter and then BOOM! Snow smacks you right in the face. This happens in KC every so often- we've had snows in May and those always completely throw me for a grumpy loop. :)

  12. Why am I always ticked off and surprised about the weather in April?!? Clearly, by your pictures this happens every year more or less but it doesn't seem to make me feel any less sorry for myself. LOL. Second winter, go away!

  13. I need to stop complaining about the Chicago weather. I love the snow but not a second winter in April!

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 …
