Really. Talk about unannounced hiatus.

The weather is finally hot in the city. No more garbage strike. Work is super stressful. Life is busy. Bee starts his new job tomorrow. Our birthdays are coming. Looking forward to my vacation (T minus 25 days)!

Last weekend:

Blowfish + Skybar for a friend’s birthday. Good times.

It’s been a very taxing day. I’m drained. I can’t wait to get out of this “jury duty” stuff and go back to work!

But enough of the crap.

Bee bought me a 1/2 dozen cupcakes from The Cupcake Shoppe on Friday! *Heart*

The mocha one (“Sleepless in Toronto”) was eaten before I could get a photo lol. :9

Say hello to my new dress shoes for special occasions. Bought on Sunday.

Holt Renfrew Last Call at Vaughn Mills. $65 down from around $500. Finally got those old white satiny ones replaced which I managed to ruin after last year’s grad formal. That’s what booze + dancing + downtown pavement gets me. They were destoryed beyond belief lol.

So yesterday Bee came and picked me up after work so we could head to Milestones for dinner. They were having this “date night” promo where basically it’s buy one get one free. We had 2 appetizers and 2 entrees for about $32 (after tax, before tips)!! Food was so good, we haven’t been to Milestone’s in awhile. The wait time was crazy though, we got there a little after 5pm and we still waited about an hour and 20 minutes before we got our table! Although, having a drink while waiting does make the time go by faster.

Warning: Shoddy camera phone pictures ahead because I forgot my camera at home!

Bee couldn’t make it out to the city this weekend due to his exams, so I made plans with M instead on Saturday.

We hit up Yorkville, Kensington, Queen West AND Eaton Centre…Only to realize we’re not that young anymore lol. Bubbletea breaks are definitely a must.

Mini-cupcakes from Cora’s in Kensington. So cute and yummy! M and I both had the red velvet ones…Mmmmm.

After a full day of shopping (more on my buys later) we headed back into the ‘burbs where K picked us up for dinner.

Grilled butterfish roll, I prefer my sushi raw, but this wasn’t bad. M likes to play with her food, if you didn’t notice lol.

After dinner we drove over to T&T to pick up some Asian snacks to sneak into the movies.

K decided to park his car at the theaters next to these guys:

Canadian Geese are as evil as this flash-heavy photo makes them out to be. Hissing geese scare me!

We saw Adventureland. I was expecting it to be less drama and more funny, except it was the other way around. Enjoyable nonetheless and a great way to end off a long day!

What I wore (yes, it’s that men’s shirt again):

I spent most of Friday cleaning out my closet and dresser. I swear I am such a pack-rat!

img_1853

My closet…I manage to keep almost all of my shoes in here too.

img_1856

My dresser.

img_1860

I have so much clothes that I am even using two drawers from my desk to keep clothes in. One for tanks and the other for tees. I also have a large roll-away storage container under my bed for seasonal stuff storage.

img_1859

Stuff I will be donating to the Salvation Army. Hopefully they’ll find new homes. These piles don’t include some other items that I’m giving to my 16 year old cousin.

It feels good to be able to close m dresser properly again lol.

I also decided to bake some cookies. Bunny shapes for Easter!

Bunny cookie complete with face customized by my mom hehe. She’s so funny.

Green tea shortbread cookies. They are really good! Recipe is from here.

Special 5th anniversary plans were postponed again this Saturday due to Baby#2 (aka. Bee’s beloved Honda Prelude) being in the shop. We didn’t do the anniversary thing last weekend because Bee got pretty sick with a flu/cold.

So instead we grabbed a day pass and traveled around the city via public transit, just like how we did when we first started dating. The day began with lunch in Greektown. I forgot to take a lot of food pictures today, probably because by the time I get my food all I want to do is eat it!

We spent most of our day exploring the Distillery District and then hanging around Habourfront until dinner time. The day ended off with dinner in Koreatown at our usual place.

Bee said this “tree” in the Distillery reminded him of Q-Tips lol.

I have been hunting for the perfect button-down to  wear casually on the weekends.

I wanted it in a longer cut, couldn’t be white and the cuffs had to be a different colour so the sleeves would look good rolled up. Oh and I wanted it cheap too. None of this paying $50+ for a dress shirt. I found it today whilst shopping with my mom.

img_1754

American Eagle. Xsmall in men’s. $19.99. I was surprised on how well it fit me! Love.

Details, details…

On another note, my uncle and aunt just got back from a month-long trip in Japan.

img_1734

Something for me!

img_17421

Green tea and a mug from Starbucks! The Starbucks here definitely don’t sell mugs as nice as this one. Now I don’t have to drink the crappy Lipton green tea bags they have at work anymore. Bleh.
