We had a great weekend full of friends and fun!
It started off on Friday evening, when we gathered at my sister-in-laws house for a fondue party. (No pictures though, we were having too much fun-due!)
On Saturday night we got together again at The Waterfront restaurant to celebrate our friend Lori’s birthday. We don’t get to see each other very often because of conflicting work/school schedules, so when we do come together, we like to make it a great time!
The story behind the cake is this: Lori is a student that relies on our local transit system to get her to school. More often than not the bus is either very late, or doesn’t come at all. Lori’s hate for the DRTS is well known, and thus the cake shaped like a bus with a knife through it. The cake was made by Natalie at Ache for Cake and it was a delicious mocha flavour that tastes like a Coffee Crisp bar. Her fondant is hand-made and delicious too! All-in-all it was a nice meal, but Adam and I both agreed that the restaurant was a little overpriced, and the service was lacking. (P.S. All of my pictures of the birthday girl came out blurry, sorry Lori!)
This afternoon Adam and I headed downtown to see our first Toronto Raptors game of the season. We love going to sporting events together!
we also had some adventures in self-portrait taking:
After the game was over (the Raptors lost, boo!) we walked up to the Eaton Centre to do a bit of shopping and to see the tree.
Every year Swarovski and the Children’s Wish Foundation put up the Wish tree in the centre of the mall. It’s at least 2 stories tall, and is covered is sparkling Swarovski ornaments. I love to go and see it every year.
My camera couldn’t capture the sparkle of this tree, trust me when I say it sparkles!!
Now, we’re putting up our tree and watching Love Actually.
What are your holiday traditions? I’d love to hear about your decorating, shopping, family, or workplace traditions!!
