Birthday Girl

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 0 0

It’s my birthday!

I am now the ripe ol’ age of 28 { how did that happen?! }.

 

I took the day off today – which was the best idea ever. Went to yoga in the morning, met a friend for a boozey lunch, and now headed out to dinner with the manfriend to eat lots of sushi and try to forget that my fertility has just dropped another 10%. Great. ;)

Beauty's

For my first four months in Montreal, I lived two blocks away from Beauty’s. It was on Ave du Mont-Royal, the main street I would walk down to get my groceries from Provigo, to walk to the Metro, or to go shopping on Boulevard St-Laurent. I walked past Beauty’s almost every day.

Beauty’s { http://beautys.ca/ } isn’t anything fancy – it’s a straight up Jewish deli/diner that serves the basics: eggs, pancakes, burgers, milkshakes. It’s got a cult following and there’s often a lineup around the block to get in for weekend brunch.

In those four months that Beauty’s was my neighbour, and even in the entire year I lived in Montreal, I never ate at Beauty’s. It was only 3 years ago, on my last trip to Montreal { ugh, I cannot believe it has been 3 whole years }, that I told Lyndsey we must get breakfast at Beauty’s. So we lined up with everyone else, and ate eggs and coffee and milkshakes for breakfast. I don’t remember it being anything special or worth that cult following, but I was so happy to have finally visited.

A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Saturday, October 19, 2013 0 0

 We went to the pumpkin patch today! I love the pumpkin patch, even though I am no longer a kid! It’s so fun wandering all the fields of pumpkins, munching on fresh crisp apples and hot apple cider, walking through the hay, and getting a tractor hay ride!
