last lazy days of summer

As I finish up this crazy summer filled with hockey, baskeball, kids everywhere and 'late" fabulous summer weather I am trying to keep funky and fresh but still a little classy.  I find it so easy to be throwing on mini shorts and a ratty t but with teenage kids and their friends around I need to keep it a bit more grown up.

  I love this j crew skirt I bought.  I wear it a lot. Usually with a white tee or tank and a fun colored light cardi.  I am thinking I need to mix it up a little bit.  

Perhaps chambray.


Perhaps sparkles.

Time to seach the old closet and find new ideas!

Back at it?

Seriously, almost 2 years.  Well that is just plain crazy.  Time flies, when you are raising the babies I guess.  Lets see if I can get it together and do this again.  Hang in there.  I am about to try this again!

Early Mornings.

Okay so the blogging has not gone so well lately. Pictures have been really hard to upload this month for some reason. They would take forever and sometimes not load and over all got me crazy frustrated so I gave up for a while. Lets see if this post is going to bring it all back home!

Mornings this summer are this. Me getting up fairly early, kids still sleeping, hubby already gone to work. I am loving this quiet time I am getting. These are the pics of my back yard where I am spending my mornings reading, drinking tea and loving it! This bit of me time is so fantastic. I putter around too. Watering, checking out my garden, just loving the sunshine. I am sure the other neighbours look over and laugh. I am out in my housecoat with a big giant sun hat and a cup of tea.

So everyone enjoy your mornings and I will try and be more blogging available! Ha ha.

Spring Break

I am finally getting up some spring break pics! It has been crazy here. We were in Cabo with my parents and friends we met last year from Salt Lake City and cousins and their kids. We had a ball, relaxing and drinking and eating. The kids loved playing with their cousins and friends. It was another amazing trip.

This was our fourth year in Cabo at the same resort and we absolutely love it. The staff is amazing, and the food is stellar. And being all inclusive means it is a holiday for me too. I spent most of my time laying on the lawn chair and reading on my newly acquired (for this trip) kindle. I came back refreshed and ready to begin spring. Unfortunately, mother nature has other ideas. We have had record setting snow falls. Two in the last week and half. Good times. So I will sit here in my warm clothes unpatiently waiting for spring. I am needing all my warm weather clothes to be brought out. Hopefully soon!

I am back!

We are back after a couple fabulous weeks away in Cabo! Pic's will be up soon, after I am done the 15 loads of laundry and getting back into the grind.

Glad to be back.

sunday brunch

So we wound up the weekend with Hubby away with breakfast out. Had great crepe's and eggs benedict. Ladybug and Cafe is such a great place to have breakie. The vibe is so french. I imagine it is what Paris is like for breakfast. I have never been but my imagination is rampant.

I have been really contentious about trying to eat right and get the old bod back before we head to Cabo for spring break and I am back in some pants that haven't been in for a few months. Felt great. These are the pants. They are some of the gap trousers and i do love them. I think they are perfect for this weather and I love how they showcase the SHOES!!!! This great denim is shirt is Joe Fresh, and it comes with a belt but I feel it makes me look huge. So wearing it loose like this feels much better.

Girls night out!

Had a great night out Saturday with some girls who I haven't seen all together in like 10 years!! We all used to work together waitressing and we got together at the pub by my house to catch up and laugh.

I wore my new again fave R and R jeans and a new top from Anthropology that I just love. Got a lot of compliments and felt pretty! And these amazing best deal ever new shoes.

Hubby is away and the kids and I decided to go to the mall. I actually stopped in the Bay to use the ladies room, which is by the shoe department, amazingly smart layout! When I came out I noticed this great rack of clearance shoes. And everything was 50% off the last price. I cam across these beauty Rachel Rachel Roy shoes and noticed the price said $49.99! Original price was $175! So I took them up to the till after trying them on and thought for sure they would tell me they were priced wrong. They weren't! I got them for $26!!!!! Score!! The great bonus is that they are amazingly comfy even with my terrible foot, they were fantastic.

So my husbands children ( I call them that because this weekend I am not so impressed with them) were crazy all weekend. And I just found out that Jaker's has Monday off school, this is after him being home all week with strep throat. Calgon take me away.
