Saturday Night Special

I was planning on having a low key weekend.  Movies, wine, P90X, and some healthy eats.  I was doing well until 6 pm hit on Saturday night. 

Little did I know that one of my favourite Toronto bloggers, Raymi the Minx, was turning 29 and celebrating down the street.  So I put on my party pants (dress) and slipped into my glass slippers (Frye boots) and headed out.  Since I was already out on the town Ravi and I decided to meet up with a friend at Hrvati Bar, a cute little Croatian bar just off of Bloor Street.  Kitchen was closed so we sipped on strange brews and headed back out.  Stomachs growling we scoured the city begging bartenders to feed us.  Dude at the Victory told me I shouldn’t be eating so late at night.  Seriously?  After giving him a scowl we hopped into a cab to Toronto’s most famous 24 hour diner, The Lakeview.  $3 mimosas, $4 pints, and veggie poutine.  Booya.

Looks like vomit but tastes like slop.

Just shy of last call I jumped into a cab to meet up with Casie and Lauren at the Cadillac Lounge for one last drink before heading to Raymi’s birthday at Salvador Darling

Great tunes, old friends, new friends, balloons, toy scooters, disco balls, rocking horses, and a million cell phone pics (not one of me). 

Raymi you are a snowflake, beautiful and unique.  Happy 29th Birthday beautiful.

Welcome to the family!

Our first little one now has a baby sister.

She’s smaller, sleeker, and a lot faster than her predecessor.

My dear Aunt and Cousin, knowing my Apple addiction, were so kind and generous to surprise me with this wonderful gift for my birthday.  

They also surprised me with a box full of accessories including a dazzling smart cover!

I was blown away with the improvements made on the iPad 2.  Makes the first seem so heavy and slow.  

I’m so excited I can’t think of any app (other than Twitter and Angry Birds) to install.

Any suggestions?
