My Edmonton Trip

Hi everyone! It’s been a few days and I love to tell you all about my weekend in Edmonton Alberta!

I made the drive on Saturday morning, it’s only 2 hours away so not bad at all! Driving gives me some good thinking time as well:) I arrived at a good time and hit up west Edmonton mall in good time!

I gt some good shopping in at my favourite places – Lululemon, sephora, pink, Aritzia, bath and body works and various health Marts. Oh and any forget forever 21 and h&m, which are always total zoos!
I could not believe the amount of Christmas decor throughout the mall !!

I picked up some lunch from Opa! Greek cuisine.

An could not forget about getting my favourite pumpkin spice latte! My weakness.

The day was fooled by a drive over to my sisters house to spend the evening. We went on a walk in the neighbourhood and enjoyed the sunshine!

There was also a nearby doggy park, great for tanner!

At this point I could not find my phone and was unable to capture our thanksgiving evening!!! I know HOW UNLUCKY! But I’m certain you have all seen what the typical dinner looks like – delicious turkey, potatoes, vegetables and cranberry sauce followed by homemade pumpkin pie! Yum yum yum !

The next day I picked up my boyfriend from the airport! He’s finally made the move here and I no longer have to be living in my house alone 🙂

We went for a hike up to what’s called bear hill and enjoyed the lookout. We also wet and checked out slave lake. Colt (my boyfriend) had never been here before and absolutely loves it!

The day was followed by an amazing dinner that he prepared. Salmon, asparagus, mushrooms and potato twice baked! He has definitely upped his cooking game and I am thoroughly impressed 🙂

Overall an amazing weekend!

Sorry to have seemed like I disappeared lately! It’s been a busy Canadian thanksgiving weekend as I’m sure many of you can understand. It’s definitely one of my favourite holidays!! (Really any holiday with good food in mass amounts…)

So I’ll be later updating you on my weekends festivities. Right now we can get right to the things I’m loving as of late!

Nt only does this mall have everything you could ever need and think of, but there’s also copious amounts f
entertainment through out the day! Just going through I witnessed a pirate play and cute seal show! But seriously- everything you can think of is in this mall- a theme park and roller coasters, laser tag, bowling, a casino, water park, a Canadian made New Orleans bourbon street with numerous restaurants, an aquatic center, pirate ship, marine land, rock climbing, every single store and food joint you can think of! It’s a must see if you ever get the chance.

The fact that colt has arrived!

Yes!! My boyfriend of 7 years has finally made the move in with me!! I couldn’t be happier 🙂

My new books

I started reading the Rosie project this weekend. It’s gotten race reviews and has been recommended to me many times so I figured ’twas time to pick it up! So far it’s excellent and a very easy read. The perspective of the main character makes it soo interesting as I work with many kids with asburghers! My reason for the Lena Dunham book is because I simply think she is a brilliant and hilarious girl. Her show ‘girls’ is soo good and she has a hilarious take on life! The book sounds like it’s going to be really entertaining so i look forward to that one!
