I'm purposely posting this a day late, even though I technically didn't have a long weekend.
It was my birthday yesterday and I figured I could slack a little bit, right?
On Friday, I celebrated the start of the weekend properly. First, some BC vino at Yew while catching up with a friend. Topics included: tax fraud, food on the face, the Canucks, how to pronounce "macaron" and how boring I think the opera is.
Afterwards, I headed out for MORE drinks (thank GOD food was involved) and spent more time dissecting the Canucks.
Saturday, I had a bit of a lie-in, doing work from bed, before getting up to make pancakes and read the Daily Mail's celebrity gossip page. We're all allowed some guilty pleasures, right?
The rest of Saturday was spent running errands in that terrible rain shower before coming home to make a delicious risotto for friends. I'll share the recipe soon!
On Sunday, C-Mah and I checked out an upcycling workshop on how to upholster a stool. It was really well done and we got some good tips out of it. I can't wait to try doing our own...
I spent a bit of time walking through my new neighbourhood and playing with my new camera. I can't wait for the leaves to fill these trees up :)
Sunday night meant prosciutto-wrapped prawns and delicious martinis at J&A's before watching Lena Dunham host SNL. She was quite impressive -- did any of you catch it? What did you think?
Finally, yesterday was my birthday! Unfortunately, I was a bit down during the day, but my friends and family made me feel so special and I forgot about the bad. Besides, there were freakin' Turkish feathers on the dessert we ordered at West. What more could I want???
I hope everyone is enjoying this lovely sunshine! xo
