Show & Tell for April 24, 2015

What a whirlwind of a week! I’ve posted a ton of new jobs, for all of you that may be looking and IQ PARTNERS has a whole whack of new opportunities across industries HERE.

This weekend Jason, Mom & I are going to look at our first wedding locationand I am pretty excited. From the photos it looks like a pretty great option, so please keep your fingers crossed! I’ve been in full wedding mode, which is actually pretty fun but VERY stressful as well. I am mostly excited to have both of our families in the same place at the same time!

Can you believe it’s almost the END of April! It seems like this year is flying by and I can’t wait for the warm Summer weather to get here. I want to spend as much time as possible outside this year. I want to go to cottages and swim in lakes and drive a boat again! I haven’t driven a boat since we lived in Florida and that was in 2011!

On to Show & Tell for this week:

Show &Tell for April 17, 2015

This has been a great week. Probably one of the best weeks of my life so far. Tomorrow we actually have to sit down and start planning a wedding, which is such a foreign concept to me and I have no idea where to start! I’ve got to give you guys fair warning that I will be posting about wedding stuff over the next few months. I will make sure for every wedding-ish post that I’ll do a regular one but this event has really inspired me to write! Woo hoo!

Sooo, in other news, I’ve been MIA on the Show & Tell posts since February (sorry!) so here is an extra long one to get you through the rest of the day.

  • This weekend the Evergreen Brickworks is having and Earth Day Weekend! It’s a full weekend of events with something for everyone! “Spring into natureĀ and celebrate Earth DayĀ®Ā at Evergreen Brick Works! Explore the spring sights, sounds and wildlife at Evergreen Brick Works and Toronto’s Don Valley.”
  • You might remember a few weeks ago the “Dicks By Mail” post going viral. Well I jumped on the bandwagon and sent a “Bag of Dicks” to Jason for his birthday. Coincidentally we got engaged a week later…lol!


Happy Friday!



And all this devotion, comes rushing out of me

“Never Let Me Go” is so hauntingly beautiful.
I’ve been listening to Florence + The Machine a lot lately and this morning saw the announcement that she was headlining the very first “Bestival Toronto” on Toronto Island June 12-13. That should be a great show and I hope we get to go.

This weekend was a pretty great one. Jason and I had a quiet but fun Friday night at home and then Saturday I had a baby shower for my cousin and then ended up at the Ceili Cottage for Steph’s birthday. It was a really fun time, I saw a bunch of girls that I hadn’t seen in years. We were in the Yurt, which was a pretty interesting and funny party room.

I am so ready for Spring to get here and hopefully this month starts to ease on the deep freeze we’ve been experiencing. It’s hard to get motivated to do anything in the cold. I have completely abandoned my Yoga practice and any thoughts of going outside if I don’t absolutely have to. It’s going to be a pretty exciting month I think. There is something brewing in the air and I feel a big change coming on.

In other Toronto news, the police found the people who dug the “Mystery Tunnel” and determined that they just wanted to dig a tunnel and had no ill intent, so case is closed. Glad the hysteria level didn’t increase to Fox News proportions.

Tonight I’m going to an event at the Ripley’s Aquarium with some girls from work and I’m pretty excited about it. I hope we get to wander around a bit and see all the marine life!

Hope your week is off to a great start!






Show & Tell for February 27, 2015

Happy Friday Lovelies! Today has started off pretty great. Woke up before my alarm feeling like I had a great sleep, got a ride in to work from a super hot man (Pony) and made a lunch date for next Friday to see one of my favourite girls.

It’s been another whirlwind of a week and there are no signs of slowing down. I’ve been laying low in the evenings and we’ve almost watched all of Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy this week. Yes I’m late to the party, but man it’s such a great show. I am literally on the edge of my seat and having anxiety for most of every episode and I’m going to be sad when it’s all said and done.

This weekend will be a busy one as well. I’ve got a baby shower, maybe a wedding dress fitting with one of my ladies, fixing the stairs in our new place and maybe even getting carpet! So grown up, I know. haha

  • We Won The Internets! For real! Yesterday, the FCC voted on a monumental decision to approve strong net neutrality rules. Net Neutrality is “the principle that Internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the Internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication.” – Wikipedia
  • A Mermaid School is coming to Toronto. AquaSirene opened in Montreal and due to the fast growth they will be in Toronto by the end of the sumer! Seriously, you can learn to swim like Ariel and wear a beautiful sparkly fin. We used to pretend to be mermaids all the time when we were swimming and I am absolutely going to sign up. I wonder if it’s hard?
  • If you have $4000 you can have a brand new pair of underwear every day for a year. Yes, that’s right, for only 4K you can get 365 pairs of underwear from MeUndies. They will customize this pack so you can get mens or womens styles. But seriously, where the heck would you keep this many pairs of underwear?
  • I stayed away from the ridiculousness of the Oscars this year, but when I saw the celebrity portraits done at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party by Mark Seliger, I had to share.
  • This Guy Found a Trap Door In His New Apartment. What He Found Is Hauntingly Awesome. Enough said. Just have a look.
  • Daniel at my office made me feel old because he didn’t know who Warren G was. If you don’t know who he is, then please Google him. Warren G & Kenny G performing “Regulate” is what brought this conversation on.

That’s it for this week. Have a great weekend!



Show & Tell for February 20, 2015

Last night we had a Trivia Night party at work. It was super fun and I was on the winning team!

It’s been a pretty fun and busy week. Finn has had a couple of playdates with Jilly the Puppy and Atlas the Golden Retriever. I got my hair done by Matthew (it’s Birthday Blonde, my favourite colour) and tonight we’ve got a dinner date.

Finn & Jilly


Finn & Atlas


That’s all I’ve got. Here’s a Show & Tell!

That’s it for this week. Have a great weekend!
