Happy #11


To my very best guy, happy #11. Thank you for all the laughs, smiles, cheers, tears, adventures, romance, silliness, learning and living we've created in our little life together.

Show and Tell Tuesday- Guilty Pleasures

 Okay so for Show & Tell Tuesday with Andrea this was an easy one.... as apparent I  have 'just a few' guilty pleasures...

Chocolate... especially if it's in the brownie format-- a dense rich chocolate cake might be my very favourite thing of all time.

Yeah... I've cut back-- but I adore a good sale. Online shopping has not been good to my bank account. 

I don't drink during the week unless it's a special occasion but come weekends, I usually have a glass of wine or three. 

These days there are some later nights here as I'm getting my summer reading on... not to be confused with constructive reading by any means whatsoever.  And I adore reading other blogs!

And then when I read, I sleep in just a bit. I will be very sad when I have to wake up earlier come September. 


I have a love/hate relationship with The Bachelor. I mean I love it but I hate myself for loving it!

Yeah and my phone! 

In other news, I'm not huge on tobacco or caffeine #small blessings right?

What are your guilty pleasures?

Weekending in August

Good morning, lovelies! This week will be a busy one, preparing for our family coming and getting ready for our little vacay but we did not let it stop us from have a fun-filled busy, weekend.

We:
- Hosted our neighbourhood happy hour on Friday. Every couple weeks someone takes a turn hosting happy hour in the summer. The guests bring their drink and an appetizer. It's a great way to end the busy week but it's definitely more than one hour-- some guests left here close to 11!

- made zucchini bread (a and me) and went for a bike ride (D & C)

- visited my high school friend, Sonya and her family for sushi, a walk through the Harbourfront, a quick view of the West African festival, the most beautiful sushi, gelato and great conversation. 

- slept in on Sunday--- actually we slept in on Saturday too.

- the girls had swimming lessons

- went to Cavalia-- a horse and acrobatic show touted 'Best Show Ever'. There's a reason for that. I cannot say enough good things about the show!

- dined at a restaurant where they took 45 minutes to bring our meal and then they didn't even bring my main. A said that the waiter said sorry and made a mistake though so I should forgive him. #doingsomethingright

- went for ice cream since I just had a soggy Ceasar salad for my main. 

And just like that, it's Monday again!!

Downtown Cleveland and the Great Lakes Science Center


Days before our long weekend last weekend, D contacted his very distant but very close cousin growing up, from Cleveland to find out if they were free for a little visit from our little crew. They were so off we went on our totally unexpected road trip this summer... so unexpected, we planned it and then realised that C's new passport was being processed and we had to place a rush order! It was an amazing trip with some fantastic company and definitely one of our favourite weekends this summer...


These are just some pictures from a couple hours we spent in downtown Cleveland and the Great Lakes Science Center.





An outdoor concert at the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame.



Practise that violin, kid!!

 Our awesome hostess and her beautiful boys. Her husband had some stuff to do so we joined him later on.





Then it was off to the Great Lakes Science Center... people if you are ever in the downtown Cleveland Area, this is a must see venu even for the admitted unscientific people like myself. We stayed for hours!

LeBron James in Lego-- talk about talent!

Happy Weekending, friends!
