in numbers

guys.  I'm in a creative energy/blogging rut.
I think June really took over with all the sports and school wrap up and corrections and now I'm wiped, and the lack of energy and drive means blogging is taking a back seat.  So we'll ride this out and see how the summer goes.   I'm assuming a week of rest will leave me feeling recharged like it usually does.
So today I'm going to schmerge two month in review with numbers and the Blended Blog asks....the link up for numbers will be on this post and if you're doing the questions, all the other ladies will have that link up in our hop.  Welcome if you've come over from  my true blue's blog!

My numbers post today will be more do about a number questions you get to learn about me...June won't be reviewed as it consisted only of 3000 hours correcting, 2000 hours on a ball time and not enough sleep.  So there.
Let's get to the questions:
1.  I'm a cat lover.  I could have a million cats- I love how much they cuddle.
2. WINE AND BEER. Not mixed but I love them equally.
3. No socks, unless my feet are dry- then I slather them in vaseline and sleep with socks on.
4. One piece or tankini .... not quite bikini ready. Likely because of the beer and wine affection.
5. Living out of town, we had to do a lot of eating out between activities so I'm really looking forward to cook at home this summer as much as possible.

6. Coke zero or diet coke.  But my fave is A&W Diet Rootbeer.
7. Regular toothbrush. I should really get an electric one.
8. Chocolate and candy? Can I have both?
9. Black coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon or evening.
10. 90s gangsta rap for getting shit done, jazz or folky for relaxing and blue jays or books when not those.

11. Either Chick Flick or comedy. I like to laugh or be entertained. I can't wait for Pitch Perfect 3
12.  Colourful markers are my writing utensil of choice, but I do have a stack of Blue Jays mechanical pencils at my desk.
13. Floating.  Which is both swimming and laying out, non?
14. Dog and cat.  But I don't think I'd get a dog again after our two old girls go.
15. I drive a Mazda CX-9...grey...I think it's a crossover

16. I am both.  I love getting up early with the sun but I also love staying up late.  Usually not on the same night though because I also need loads of sleep to properly function, hence the failing in creative energy.
17. SUSHI!
18. My phone is on my nightstand, charging, along with my Apple watch.
19. I sing everywhere, shower included.
20.  Rarely do we eat store bought cookies.  But I eat them without dunking...I don't like floaties in my milk.

Hop on over to Sheila's blog to learn more about her!

on Tracy.

I've had some time over the past couple days to take a walk back through my life while revisiting all the photos and remembering old moments. It has become a part of the process I need in order to say good-bye- it's almost like I relive my life through my memories of who that person was to me so that I can fully understand the impact they had on my life.  
On Sunday heaven gained a shining star: our cousin, Tracy, passed away unexpectedly.  Tracy was young, she was vibrant, she was a creator, a dreamer, a free-spirit.  Her death is still a shock and it leaves such a huge hole in many lives.
Growing up, Tracy was that older cousin I always looked up to.  She was stuck babysitting me while I was busy admiring her gorgeous thick, curly hair, her social butterfly status and determined confidence.  I have so many memories from our frequent visits to Edmonton to hang out with my cool, older cousins. All three of them (Tracy has two older sisters- Tisa and Glenna) were the perfect f…

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…
