Loving Life after 50

Top Ten Reasons I love Canada and The Struggle is real

gingham dress, moto jacket, stud boots
Oh Canada, I do love you, really I do but lime my kids you really can drive me crazy at times. This is what I woke up to on Thursday April 3, 2015. Seriously folks like I told you Thursday my pics are real. The only positive about all this snow is somehow the “snow effect” makes me look 20 pounds lighter with no fake photo effects. SOOO maybe I should keep hoping for snow..

Or maybe not.  Want to know what else sucks about all this white stuff?? It means the ground is still frozen so I “Queen of Seasonal Decor” still has Christmas decorations up at EASTER. This is just so very wrong.

and then on Easter Sunday after a glorious double digit afternoon on Thursday and again on Friday and some sun ( yet cooler temps) on Saturday the snow has receded significantly and guess what, no more lights in the scrubs. No more Bows, no more Giant Card on the lawn, no more snowman lights. I have grass in the yard ( outfit deets later)

black Joggers, J'adore tee and cardigan

but on Thursday I went to work dressed for snow, in a black cashmere sweater, lined leggings, a leather moto and boots ( and then the sun came out and it hit 17 degrees, about 66 F ) I sometimes hate Canadian Spring, it is not possible to dress properly.

    You are sop funny and upbeat and positive among the snow in April. Such a fun shoot. I had no idea both Super Hot Ryan's are from Canada and OMG you reminded me of Poutine. I adore that fun, fantastic dress from Old Navy. It is plaid after all. Cute neon necklace also. But my favorite is the warmer weather outfit.

    It is quite cold, rainy and windy here also. It has snowed in other parts of my country but of course it almost never snows in my town. Oh well.

  • " You can experience all four seasons in one day" LOLLLL sometimes I dislike this one more than like. Love this list! Especially #10 😀

  • Patti_NotDeadYetStyle

    Oh Canada – I love your country too. Both Ryans! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xo.

  • Its a love hate relationship for sure

  • Thank you, we do have some great things to love

  • Spring is a fickle beast not doubt, and if you cannot stay positive our weather will drive you crazy LOL. I will have some poutine for you.

    So hard to beleive, snow then sun, snow then sun.. I love that you always are smiling! I like the Ryans too and I am not Canadian. 🙂 Great reasons though. Love the casual outfit Linda with the pupt ( still looking for a shih tzu) and the slip on shoes.

    Please stop by, jess xx

    Hope to see you tomorrow at Turning Heads Tuesday link up!

  • Thanks for stopping by Jess, if I ever find a tee with a Shih Tzu I will pick it up for you.

  • seriously it started snowing again today but it stopped thankfully. I truly detest this time of year, never can figure out what to wear and what to do

  • Its Spring and it is one of my least fav times of the year, April is so temperamental.

  • Moving sometimes crosses the mind, we will retire or at least winter somewhere else LOL

  • Meagan Rigney

    I feel like the weather where we both are is pretty similar (though you have a bit more cold and snow!) I do enjoy real Fall, and the two Ryan's are something to celebrate, for sure;)

  • I think we do both suffer the same winter woes for sure and Fall is pretty spectatcular

  • Ugh! Sorry to hear about the snow! But if it makes you feel better, you look adorable in that skirt! 🙂

  • You look so cute, despite the snow! Wishing for warmer weather your way…xo!

  • I sure does make it hard to get dress. I have been try to wear my flats and end up with wet feet. Due to the weather thinks it need to change every 10 minutes.
