So here is the latest scoop on my Sunday posts. Summers are very VERY short here in Ottawa, and I LIVE for a warm, sunny summer weekend. And now with my life in a bit more of a state of chaos than normal (house reno project making my stress level sky-rocket) I think I may skip out on some Sunday posts every now and then. I need a bit of a break, and I desperately need to be spending the time outdoors rather than inside on my laptop. Hope you all don’t mind too much. We’ve had fantastic weather the last couple of days and I managed to get out and enjoy it. Which means I did not have time to scour blogland looking for my blog favourites of the week. Instead you are stuck with a few photos I snapped Friday and Saturday that documented my outings. I figured I’d at least share those.
So Friday night my hubby and I walked down to the main strip of Little Italy for some sushi (at Kikko – some of the best sushi in the city)…forgetting it was the first day of the annual Little Italy festival. Luckily we scored a table on the patio which was cool because we got to stuff our faces and people-watch, while enjoying the view of some Lamborghinis (the festival always includes hot Italian sports cars on display).
Just before heading to dinner we stopped at Justyna’s home to pick up some vintage clothing I bought at her online shop (which she is unfortunately closing – so everything is 50% off if you’re interested…)
Yesterday we spent the day at my little sister’s cottage and the weather was PERFECT. I laid out on the dock most of the morning (and ended up a little fried – OOPS).
My little niece Gianna decided she was a bit thirsty and was up for a taste of my Bacardi cooler.
My sister warmed up some jalapeno popper dip I made – OMG this stuff is addictive, especially when alcoholic beverages are consumed at the same time.
Tomorrow we have some errands to run and then we’ll be heading out to my parent’s place to celebrate father’s day with my pops, and enjoy a little bit of this (after loading on sunscreen this time):
But before I get to do that I have to work on a little project my twin sister and I did not get to complete last summer.
