What you think about, you bring about ?!!


OK, then I am thinking about George Clooney.

Bring him on.


Tony Robbins


I would have said Channing Tatum, but he is like 12 years old compared to my age.  I just turned 24 for the second time.

Visuals like that do make my grin hit my ears.  Dream.  Dream big.

I am also thinking about island living.  How about you?


Because holy moly it’s freakin’ cold outside.  Are you frozen ?  It is teeth chattering time of year.  You know the season.  The season where your fingers feel like frozen fish sticks.

Cold weather is where fun goes to die.




 Snow can kiss my butt.  Big time.



Beach, surf, cold drinks, sun , fun, sand



  Welcome to Winter.


If I saw a snowman right now, I would flat out deck him, right on his stupid carrot faced nose.  I would knock his rollie pollie fat head right off his plump shoulders.  I might even be bold enough to jump right on his fat snowman head.

Who beats up a snowman ??!!


I need a holiday.  I want one.  NOW.  Aaaaaand I want it to come with a cabana boy.  A hawt cabana boy.  With some loin cloth on or something.  I don’t even care if he is wearing anything.

Naked is fine.

Jokes.  Serious.

I’m just kidding.  Not really.  Seriously.

Beach life

sun sand and surf

Some people like snow.  Some people love it.  Riddle me that.   I don’t do snow well.   I get all sorts of uncomfortable just thinking about snow.   Snow can just suck it.

5 Reasons why WATER solves everything :


1.   Need a break from it all ?  Just think about the ocean and your mind will go to a beautiful place.

sun sand and surf


I get so excited thinking about island living that I almost pass out.  Well, at least I start chewing my gum really fast and I rock back and forth on my feet.  Like a happy idiot. Wishing for island living.


Do you want to know what wise people say ??!!

 Be careful what you wish for.  You just might get it.

I need to repeat that.

Be careful what you wish for.  You just might get it.


I don’t know about you, but I am not taking any chances, and I am putting it out there.

 While you’re at it, universe, I would also like a cabana boy & full time housekeeper for my beach hut.

There.  The cat is outta the bag.

What’s your message to the universe ?


Write it down.  Get it out there.  Say it to yourself, over and over again.

It is EPIC to dream.  Give it a try.

We all want to have our cake and we all want to eat it too.

 Nothing wrong with that, my friends.

Everything is RIGHT about that.

Slow down life. Breathe it all in.

 Are you in for dreaming up a slice of awesomeness ?

Get your visualization on.


You won’t believe how much fun you can have in your head.

I'm sick of following my dreams.
  I'm just going to ask where they are going, and follow them.

Let’s play the game of : what could go wrong ?


Nothing could go wrong.

2.Still feeling stressed ?  Have you ever found yourself in hot water ? Oh hells ya.  Want to know how to get out of hot water?  Get into hot water.


Take a beautifully hot bubble bath.  Light a candle.  Ignore the world.  Everything that went wrong, will suddenly feel right again.  If not, well at least you will be clean and you may smell good too.  BONUS.

3.  Hungover ? Drink water.  I personally would never drink enough liquor to get hungover.  LIE.  I personally hate drinking water. TRUTH

Back to visualizing the ocean.  Stop hating on my bad-ass.  We need to think sun, fun and sand.

Here we go…..

4.Want to have your skin, nails & hair feeling hydrated and healthy ? Sip that water missy. Or mister.   You should care too.  Men who are nicely groomed are HAWT.  Pay attention, men…that makes women WILD.

If you smell good …. well…. some woman is going to tap your quesadilla.  Foooshur.

 You’re welcome.

5.  Kids having a freak out ?  Put them in water.  It works every time.  I have FOUR kids.  They are all awesome, but that could change on a moments notice.

When it does…. In the bath they go …..

Water solves everything.

Told ya.


PS. I couldn’t resist sharing a water video/clip with you.  I don’t know jack about YouTube but I am sure as hell gonna give it a try.

Are you up for a wee laugh and a little grossness too ? Wait, you might want to cover your eyes for this one…. Just listening to the video clip is good enough.   And gross.  All at once.  Here you go :

As always, you are amazing Lynne! I’ve just shared this with a load of women I admire, thank you!!! Imen xx

Don’t shoot me for saying this, but I still am craving a real winter. Though I understand why you want a vacation. My parents keep emailing me photos of their place by Lake Huron and I am like Wow you got out the door today and didn’t get fall into a manhole of snow. There are these hilarious Bruce Grey Ads on the radio right now inviting people to come book their winter vacation there as “Snow” apologizes for it’s dismal appearance in other parts. Like ours. I have worn my winter boots ONCE this season. I have grass on… Read more »


Oh how that made me laugh! Hearing the sound of my own laughter in the quietness of my empty office was such a treat. Thanks Lovely. What a perfect video and fabulously flawless post. I’m a big lover of animals so naturally I’m in love with your gorgeously ginormous, drooling, goobery treasure. So sweet that your husband risked all kinds of unimaginable willies and shakes, by coming to Oliver’s rescue and freeing him from the hideous slime that was putting him at risk of becoming a social outcast. HAHA! My husband and I spend a couple Saturday’s a month rescuing… Read more »


Hi Lynne, I found your tree house on Houzz.. From your tree house I found you, then I said yes to an email, and then I received a journey on your crazy thinking path. Thank you, it was a very enjoyable, yes I did visualise many times but most of all was fascinated with how good you can articulate your feelings. Your honesty is like sitting down with a long term friend thank you very much. Can’t wait for another, I’ll say, cup of tea, befor the days work ahead of me. And if I can steal some time to… Read more »


Quite possibly the funniest blog post I have ever read… and quite possibly my most favourite one.

Also how is it possible that every post you write gets better than the last one! Baffles me.

P.s The kinda pregnant line made me laugh so hard I hiccuped… didn’t even know that was possible… I think I just typed “possible’ a gillions times.
You never fail to amaze me.
I luvvvssss you


I ABSOLUTELY HATE SNOW! I thought I was the only one out there that hates it so much. It was so good to read your blog. My husband likes cold and every women I know right now seems to be having a hot flash. But not me. No matter what my hormones are doing I freeze. If I tell people I hate the cold they look at me like I’m weird.. Then I start to eat cookies and cake and feel a little warmer! It is so cold right now even in California. It is freezing every morning and I… Read more »

I am a firm believer in this concept. I’m thinking beach, a pink helicopter, and the beach boys 🙂

I also think the video is gross!! Thanks (ew). I am not good with spit or slobber and I have an 18 month old. Ughhhhh *shivers* I can change the dirtiest diaper but leave me out of snot and spit.

But this was a beautiful and inspiring post that makes me long for summer and warmth.

Oliver is nice and neat compared to my English Mastiff, Tanner, who could shake his head and land goobers on the ceiling…ugh! We’d clip a dishtowel around his neck w/ mitten clips which he’d wear daily for a drool cloth…lol!

Lynne! You words are like a balsam – of course I KNOW that what I think about, I bring about but it is nice to be told. Again and again. Thank you… Hey, in our house (which currently does not have a big dog but a teeny tiny one) dog spit is called ‘chong’. Almost always delivered by the likes of a boxer, a large terrier or maybe even a Pyrenees. As an aside, if you ever meet a friend with a dog like Oliver what you say is “hey, you have a great pair of knees too!” They may… Read more »

Leave it to Chicago to have 60’s & thunderstorms the past two days and then 12° predicted for tomorrow. Strange winter but I’m still ready to get the hell out of dodge. I was thinking a swim up bar sounded fabulous, but your cabana boy sounds much better. Who the hell wants to put that much effort into swimming to get a drink. When do we leave?!


Sweetest dogs in the world, slobber and all! Our girl Sheba would be all smiles to meet another Pyr as handsome as Oliver. The pool is a happy reminder that Spring is closer than we think!

I’m glad the video came with a gross-out warning. I finished eating and THEN pushed play. Because if Oliver wasn’t gross enough, your dry heaving noises certainly pushed me over the edge! OMG – cracking up laughing! WHY do we have dogs? Remind me? They’re so blind to their own grossness.
Thanks for the summer reminder -.I needed that bigtime. And I’m still working on getting JP Arencibia (Blue Jays catcher) to be my cabana boy. I know he already has a summer job and everything, but really…we’re nice people, right?


Come to Florida with me you big whiner or should I say WINER!! I will be there from Feb19-Apr 1st-fancy a girls weekend??

OMG! How big is your dog or your daughter is extremely small!

Goober is gross, remind me to never enter your swimming pool!

Great post!
