Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful

It’s so cold here in Toronto, or perhaps it’s just my imagination because I think that anything below 10 degrees celsius is cold.  But even Drake the dog wants to go inside after only 10 minutes galavanting about; so, it can’t all be in my head right?

This was today’s on air look and the best part is that it’s super comfy!  The soft jersey knit dress is the most relaxed thing ever.  And I love the detail of the asymetrical hem.  It adds a little interest into what would otherwise be a very boring outfit.  

However, I couldn’t go without adding a little glitz to the whole thing – I don’t like to be too monochromatic.  So I added these statement earrings.  I love the intricacy and size of these, but I like that they still manage to be elegant because of the solid silver look.

The best thing about today though?  Even though it’s so cold and bitter and I hated being out, something great happened.  After coming home frozen, I warmed up with a bowl of homemade soup (made by Husband) and opened an early birthday present.  What was it you ask?  A night for me at The Sutton Place Hotel – just for me.  No baby to keep me up and no one to ask anything of me.  I’m going to sleep, eat, sleep, run, sleep, and sleep.  He’s giving me a whole 24 hours of uninterrupted peace and rest.  I couldn’t have asked for anything better.  That’s one good man for you.  Can’t wait!  It’s this Thursday, December 16.  You betcha I’m going to blog all about it.

For Eileen McCurdy

My co-worker, the always lovely Eileen McCurdy, has been wanting to see me in this dress since I showed her the online store picture.  But I recently told her why I could not wear it to work for her to see, and after giggling at me she said, “Blog about it.”  So Eileen this one’s for you!

The dress is one of my latest acquisitions from ShopRuche and I must say that I absolutely love it!  But here’s the problem (and it’s one I should have thought of earlier, but it probably wouldn’t have stopped me from buying the dress): it’s got a high neck and back zipper.  Now why is that a problem you ask?  Simply this:  I can’t wear it to work or for more than a few hours at a time. Why you ask again?  Because as a nursing mom I need to pump milk at work or when I’m out for longer times spans, and this dress doesn’t allow that.  I need easy access to my boobs! So that’s why I can’t wear this dress to work, and why it must remain in my closet unworn until I stop nursing. I can’t be striping down to my knickers in the bathroom and playing with back zippers.  I need to be able to whip those puppies out whenever and wherever I need to!

Sunshine on a Rainy Day

It’s a horrible day in Toronto.  It’s rainy and cold and not at all appealing.  It’s a day where you stay inside unless you absolutely have to go out and even then you think twice…maybe even three times.  So when Husband said we’re going out I was certainly not pleased.  So, not pleased, I grumbled certain expletives under breath while sipping my Earl Grey.  But alas, I got my butt in the shower and into clothes and headed outside.

And yes, I even managed to put on a smile.  I parted ways with Husband and Baby and headed dowtown today to an audition.  The whole thing went okay, but well..there’s always something you’re kicking yourself about and today was no different.  But on the way home I managed to put all doubts aside and let it go.  Once home I wanted to go for a run (love to run, by the way!) but Baby was sleeping in Husband’s arms and I had to feed her the second she woke up.  So I turned to Husband and asked, “What do I do?”  He answered, “Don’t you have a blog to write or something?” He knows me too well.

So it’s after my run (and yes, shower too) and I sit here writing.  Husband is making dinner.  Is it wrong that I love the fact that I don’t have to cook?  It’s not that I’m a bad cook; I’m just not a very interesting or interested one.  But I’m an avid eater – that I do well!

I think I’m going to have a problem with this girl.

It’s after dinner, Baby is asleep, and Husband and I are going to watch a movie now.  On a final random note it occurs to me, since I’m wearing a Wifebeater does that mean I have to hit myself?

Goodnight, see you all tomorrow!

At Home Dealing With Web Design Frustration

I’m spending the day at home with Baby while Husband is at work.  Lately, she’s been giving me a run for my money by keeping me up most of the night.  But since we’ve gotten home from my Moms house she’s started to calm down again.  Perhaps, it’s being in her own surroundings that’s doing it. 

I managed to grab a great photo of the two of us today and it’s going to go on my desktop.  You’re seeing a cropped version of said photo.  Sorry, not going to show you the rest as I don’t want Audrey’s face in any photos I share on the net.  I chose to put mine up, but she hasn’t chosen to do that and I respect her privacy too much to make that choice for her.  It’s my own personal decision.

On another note, I’m still revamping the site.  The basic template is down but I still need to rework the header and some minor things.  It’s frustrating me to no end.  I’m computer literate, just not code and web design literate, so my laptop has come close to being smacked on something hard a few times today.  As I sit here writing it’s still shaking from it’s several near death experiences.  But in the meantime I will continue to post so please continue to check in and see what’s new.  Better yet, why not subscribe?
