Weekending

Hello, hello! Happy Monday!

This weekend flew by. Don't they all? I'm sure I have said that several times in my weekending posts. And I'm sure I'll say it again! We didn't get quite everything done that we wanted to do but that's ok. We had perfect fall weather this weekend that called for ponchos, boots, and pretty plaid scarves. 

The Friday excitement started out around noon. After weeks of planning, we celebrated my boss' retirement with a fun party. We had a great turnout and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. My favourite part was the speeches and the gorgeous cupcakes that were handmade for the event. I took a couple cake decorating classes in the past but I don't think I could ever duplicate these. They were so pretty, not to mention delicious!



Saturday morning I had a hair appointment to have my highlights touched up and what is there to do while the hair dye sets other than take snapchat selfies?


Saturday night Mike and I went to a new (to us) restaurant to celebrate a good friend's birthday. It was such a fun place! There was live music -- two guys in the middle of the restaurant that played guitar and piano and took requests for all sorts of songs. It seemed like they knew how to play everything! We ended up having everyone in the building sing Happy Birthday to my friend. It was fun to catch up with everyone there and eat delicious butter chicken (my favourite dinner!)




On Sunday we were supposed to visit another friend in Toronto but one of the major highways was closed for the weekend so we asked to reschedule. Driving into Toronto can be slow on the best of days and taking side streets to get downtown would basically take forever. So instead, we visited my mom and brother and went out for a delicious dinner to a Polish restaurant. I try to cook Polish food as often as possible but I can never top the way this restaurant makes it. I love going there! I had white borscht (┼╝urek) in a bread bowl.


And now we're ready for the week ahead. We don't have too much planned for this week other than catching up on chores and hopefully going for a walk or two before the weather cools down for good.

I hope you had a great weekend!

  11. Those cupcakes are absolutely gorgeous! Ohhh I should talk to you about Polish recipes. I really want to try some. I've never really had a chance to try many things, which is a damn shame since I'm half Polish.
