Happy Monday

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Ours ended up being super busy but full of fun stuff so I didn’t mind too much.

Saturday we picked up my new car. I love it so far but am definitely having to adjust to it as it is bigger than what I am used to driving. It is also much better in the snow and considering the dump we got this weekend I was grateful to have it. We also made a trip up to the British Pantry up by Northland Mall.  Hubby is from Scotland so he likes to go up there and get “treats” that he used to get when he was growing up.

Saturday night we went for supper at Brassiere in Kensington with some friends then out to Winefest.  I have only ever been to the Rocky Mountain Food and Wine Festival which is cheap to get in but then you need to purchase tickets for everything.  This one however tickets were more expensive but included everything. It was a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend going next year. Tickets sold out for both Friday and Saturday this year quite a bit ahead of time too.

Sunday I had a baby shower to attend – which was the second reason we went up the British Pantry.  The mommy-to-be is from England so I wanted to find her some things that would reminder her of home that I could tuck in with the baby gift. After the shower I did absolutely nothing! I was dragging my butt a bit from all the wine consumed on Saturday night so I was quite happy to just lie in front of the fireplace and watch the Oscar’s.


  1. What kind of car did you get? So exciting!

    1. It is a Cadillac SRX. I used to drive a little VW Jetta so I have been saying I finally got a "big girl" car. LOL
