Well, we did it to ourselves and today we are so tired, but yesterday we had too much fun!
My daughters Kerstin, Chloe, and I had a whole day and night to ourselves.
I asked them what they would like to do, since our three little ones went to visit their other grandmother for an over night stay, and Kerstie said, “Everything!”
Everything began with a jaunt across town to Main st. for lunch at one of our favourite restaurants, East is East.
This little restaurant has everything we love: wonderful, local and organic food, repurposed, locally sourced and sustainable materials for the interior decor, and a warm, friendly, chai-spiced atmosphere.
After lunch we hit every secondhand, vintage, lovely boutique, and pop-up shop in that hood.
There’s the most beautiful little vintage shop there called Woo Vintage.
It was just so much fun trying on vintage dresses and accessories.
Darn it anyway, girls in the 1940s didn’t have a rib cage, did they?
Across the street is a little home decoration boutique called Nineteen Ten
So many beautiful gift ideas here. I fell in love with the wooden and resin boards; which were so beautiful I would never be able to cut anything on them.
Then, a few steps away, we found Fallow, a pop-up shop with everything from flowers to hand-made clothing. Just an amazing little collection from several makers and sellers.
We got home about 5-ish, had a rest, got changed, and headed out for the night.
At this point, with my two daughters at home, I started my make up in the dining room mirror. 😀
We headed back across town to the Kino Cafe for sangria and tapas.
Our friends Warren and Taven met us there and we had the most fabulous evening.
Chloe and I dropped Kerstie and the boys downtown on our way home in the middle of the night and they stayed to dance the night away.
It’s a good thing we didn’t get our little girls back till the afternoon. Chloe made it to 10am yoga!
No idea how she managed that.
