Weekend Recap

We had a friend visiting us this weekend from the East Coast.  She came on Thursday to Sunday.  On Friday, I took the day off of work and we braved the outlets (near Toronto, not the US) for Black Friday sales.  We got there for 7:00 am, which turned out to be a pretty good plan.  We did have to wait in line at a few stores, but we had no issue with parking.  When we were leaving, around 11:00, the parking lot was a mad house and the lines to the stores had doubled.

We did pretty well and we got a lot of Christmas shopping done.

Side note, I have been looking for tall boots for years.  Many boots don't fit me so it has been a challenge.  I finally got a pair of boots at Cole Haan, and they were half price.  I know you're not supposed to buy gifts for yourself before Christmas, but this had to be an exception.

On Friday night we met some other friends at Sidecar on College Street.  The food was good, and the company even better.  The Toronto Temperance Society is upstairs, and it has pre-mixed cocktails that Sidecar serves. 

Who needs dessert when you can have a glass of Cava?

More shopping on Saturday at the Eaton Centre. 

Then we met Dave and E at the Distillery District Christmas Market.  It was crowded as usual, but very festive.

We went on the carousel a couple of times, and E loved it.

After I dropped off our friend at the airport on Sunday, Dave, E and I went for a walk.  It was kind of grey, but very warm.

It was a pretty tiring weekend, but fun and I got a lot of Christmas shopping done!
