Manic Monday

Blah, to another work-week. I hope everyone had a nice weekend, regardless!

On Friday evening, Brian and I went out for dinner right in the midst of Taste of the Kingsway. I was actually planning on going to the event on the Saturday with my sister but errands got in the way and we ran out of time. So even though we were just passing through, it was still nice to see!

As soon as we were done dinner, a storm broke out! As we ran to the nearest subway station, we got soaked and I was convinced we were going to be struck by lightning (we weren't though!). It was raining and lightning on and off for most of that evening but thankfully, we were cozy inside my house, had some drinks and watched the Blue Jays game, some Jimmy Fallon and later on, a bunch of Friends episodes on dvd.

On Saturday, instead of heading back to Taste of the Kingsway with my sister as originally planned, we bused it to the mall and she helped me shop for JEANS! I had needed new ones for so long and when it comes to jean-shopping, I prefer going with someone else so they can assist me. I'm glad she was there for me!

That evening, I headed out with a few friends for some quick drinks. I wasn't able to take any pictures because the camera on my phone has stopped working for some reason!!! This is the second time this has happened so I'm going to be paying a visit to my service provider soon to see if they can do anything about this; I need my camera for photos!! For now, I'll just use a quick Google image.

So that night, we headed on over to Pauper's Pub for a bit:

And then we went on over to basically the "bigger" version of Pauper's, the Madison:

It was a fun night but the Madison was insanely busy!! (as it usually always is).

And since the camera on my phone isn't co-operating right now, yesterday while working at my part-time job I asked my coworker Michelle to take some photos for me of the beautiful fall mums and pumpkins we have displayed outside the store!: (she took a whole bunch for me!)

Absolutely gorgeous! :) I do love fall!

Straight after work, I headed on over to my friend Julia's place for a small BBQ. Again, I wanted to take some pictures because she had a beautiful set-up of string lights around her backyard that just made it look gorgeous. I think a few of my other friends took some photos so when they are posted, I can include them.

I also wanted to congratulate Kate Middleton and Prince William on the announcement of their second expecting child! :D
