Can't Stay Away From Blogging / Find Me Elsewhere

Hello, if you would like to follow my current blog please visit! Thank You!


It's bittersweet that the domain ( is about to expire in 10 days, right now I'm thinking that I'm not going to renew it. I think I'm probably done blogging at this location, but even if I don't renew the domain, I'll still leave the blog up at it's blogspot address.. so all is not lost, heck.. maybe I'll change my mind and still be blogging here, but the current domain will not be linked to the blog. Make sure to bookmark FRUGALCUPCAKE.BLOGSPOT.COM so you'll still be able to find the blog!

I do still enjoy blogging, I have a couple ideas of starting a private family blog, and perhaps even a cooking/baking blog. Please visit this blog as often as you deem necessary! <3

Oh, Hello There

We've been back from North Bay for like 4 days now? I just haven't had any desire to blog, and really.. I still don't. Maybe it's time for another one of those blogging breaks we all love so much? I definitely need time to refocus on if I still want to blog, what I would really like to blog about.. if I still am blogging I definitely need a new layout, if not a new blog altogether. Definitely time to refresh and re-energize.

What's new in my life? Since I quit my job 2 months ago, I finally received a check for my 401k savings amount minus a hefty chunk of taxes (about 2k) and promptly spent over $800 of it on buying my hubby a laptop of his very own (which he loves, and I love because now we aren't fighting over using mine!), and after weeks and weeks of searching for a suitable new bicycle in my desired cheapy price range, I finally settled on one and bought it last night at Sport Chek (totally a Canadian store)! Yay! Now hubby and I can both go on lengthy bike rides with one of us hauling our son behind our bike in his jogging stroller, but I'm pretty sure my legs are going to hate me for buying a bike! Hopefully my new bike will get plenty of use before winter!

Well, after buying a new bike & helmet, and my hubby's new laptop, I'm feeling pretty broke. Next on our list of things to buy is a 42" or bigger flatscreen tv, but that's going to have to wait until next year =) I still need a whole new winter wardrobe ( Seriously, I don't have any winter clothing here!) and I'd really like to buy a decent blender to make myself Green Monster Smoothies for breakfast every morning.

Okay, that's all I have to blog about for now, time for a little blogging break. I'll update eventually on what's going on with the blog, and with my life. Bye for now!

A Little Family Vacation

We'll be going up to Northern Ontario for most of the next week to visit my hubby's grandparents, I've never been up there before so it should be pretty fun =)

Here's some pictures of Ontario I found through Google Image search:

 It would be absolutely wonderful if the area where my hubby's grandparents lives looks anything like this! I'm planning on bringing along a couple of cameras and taking pictures =) Maybe I'll share a few photos here!

10 Reasons It's Hard for a Tall Girl to Shop

I really try not to get down about things that I have no control over, like how tall I am for example. I'm 5 foot, 9 and 3/4 inches tall, basically 5' 10". I previously wore a size 10 shoe, but since being pregnant with my son I now wear a size 11 shoe, here's hoping that if I lose a ton of weight that my feet will shrink! Ha...

here's some reasons why it's super difficult for me to shop.
  1. 95% of cute shoes aren't even made in a size 11.
  2. The store doesn't have cute shoes in size 11 in stock, you'll have to order it.
  3. A dress that looks long enough on the photo model, is going to be WAY too short for you.
  4. Pajama pants seem long enough in store, but once washed they shrink and are way too short.
  5. I can't find cute, girlie pajama pants that are long enough ANYWHERE.
  6. Most lounge pants or sweat pants will shrink too much once washed.
  7. I've bought shirts plenty of times that fit perfectly in store, but shrank too much when washed.
  8. If you wanna try your shoes on before buying them, Payless is just about the only option.
  9. While Payless shoes are usually cute and priced right, they are cheaply-made quality and won't last you very long at all. Meaning lucky you gets to do the dreaded shoe shopping more often.
  10. Over 5'9" is considered TALL sizes, do you have any idea how difficult it is to find ladies clothing in tall sizes? Even if you liked one of the 10 tall sizes a store offers online or in the catalog, they don't have it in stock and you're going to have to order it. Hopefully it doesn't shrink!
