New low. In an effort to multi task, I’m walking the dog with dye in my hair.  It ain’t pretty, but there are not enough hours in the day.

I’d never make it as a fashion blogger.  Every shot I attempted of this outfit was blurry.  Whatever…at least I don’t have to do any retouching.

Fall Vacation!

We are gearing up for our Montreal trip.  I’ve done a bit of research, but only made one dinner reservation (Toqué!) because I want our schedule to be flexible. Mostly, I think we are walking and exploring and EATING. Maybe a museum or two in the mix and I’ll sneak in as much shopping as M will tolerate.

Any suggestions?  Tell me what you know and love about Montreal!  We are staying at the Casa Bianca in the Plateau district.

Update

Friend date went well. Our common interest is art, so future outings are in the works. There was also a common interest in wine, so that’s a plus.

I have a first date with a (hopefully) new friend tonight. Trying get the outfit just right. (Way more complex than dates with boys, I assume.)

I ate a Meatball Shop Hero for dinner two nights in a row.  It’s too close to home. Help.
(I like how it comes with salad to make you feel better about your choices.)
