Happy Friday!! And it's the Victoria Day Long Weekend in Canada, one of my favourite long weekends ever. I hold good memories for this weekend in May because it's usually when the nice weather really starts to kick in (even though today's kind of blahh and grey out now). I'm looking forward to the extra day of rest! Wine Tours Toronto
Last weekend, Brian and I took a day trip up to the Niagara countryside to do a wine-tasting tour. We had never done anything like that before, but our friends were always telling us how fun they were and we wanted to try something different.
And we honestly had such a great day! More to come on the blog about it!
For Sunday Mother's Day, plans were kept fairly simple this year. We watched an I Love Lucy marathon that was on all day (we loved it!) and went to our usual, favourite Mother's Day spot - Artisano Bakery Cafe with our Nonna.
Rather than heading home for some espresso right away, our parents took us to their other small house they own. They're landlords to this cute little home, and last year after a fire broke out on the deck from the tenets, they painted the place up and got some reno done. It had been a long time since I'd seen this place and the updates looked great!
I "joked" to my parents that they should just sell the house to me one day, it's a great starter-up house for a new couple or family just starting out. Not to mention, they live on a much quieter street than ours!
The Team Is Back!
This week we also started softball again for the third year! It was so nice to come back after a long winter and see these guys again.
Plus, we won our first game! And I somehow got the winning RBI ("Run batted in") ...go figure.
Sea Glass Candles
The other night after a failed shopping experience with Somya, we made a quick trip into Bath and Body Works (to make ourselves "feel better") and came across their new and beautiful Summer candles.
And now it's the (long) weekend! What will you be up to this weekend? (whether it's an extra day for you or just a regular weekend?)
Whatever it is, I hope everyone enjoys! I leave you with two pics of Cartney: one, he's in a box. And the other: just being cute (as per usual). :)
