Well it appears that The Secret Weapon has an admirer... Rosa sent a package of Chinese tea for our resident connoisseur and we were all just thrilled! You know I will be right there when he opens it and I'll have a sample as well. Thank you Rosa, what a thoughtful gesture! If you've not visited her blog, Rosa attends cooking classes and posts wonderful recipes... and she has the most amazing travel adventures!
Before I take the Christmas trees down, I would like to share a very special ornament that The Fan found for me this year after the awful crash of the "wedding tree"... check this out: a glass version of the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City, where Veto and I were engaged! I was dumbstruck when I opened the package! I think I had a little tear in my eye but let's keep that between us, shall we? Trust The Fan to get busy and find such a treasure.
Today Veto and I are speeding down the highway towards Calgary for Loopy's orthodontic appointment. It will just be a quick overnight trip. Buddy Budderson wanted so badly to come along but was unable to get the time off work... he is disappointed because he wanted a little family road trip more than anything.
Hopefully we will be able to swing by our very favourite shopping spot: Honey B's in the Kensington district. It's chock-full of gorgeous vintage finds and giftware. Loopy almost always finds something she adores while we're there. You must visit if you get to Calgary. Major eye candy.
