I’m finally home in Nelson after a stressful few weeks! I think my lack of posts for the past little while explains my craziness, and I am having a little bit of blogger guilt for not reading, commenting, and responding to YOUR posts! I will be on top of things again soon, I promise.
So to recap the last week or so:
We had a little going away at a local pub and it was wonderful. I did not expect to see so many faces but I am so glad they all came out!
I am so grateful for all of the love and support I have gotten from my friends in Victoria. So many people helped pack things, bring things over to Vancouver, and I cannot thank them enough.
The following morning I went to Caffe Fantastico with Alan to savour the coffee and treats one more time.
Breakfast of champions I would say.
I miss them both so much already.
And the evening was finished off with one last stop at Prima Strada Pizzeria… not like we go there very often or anything.
Max and I left early Friday morning and it goes without saying that I was one sleepy bean. The picture and the hair says it all. Cale was there to send us off :)
A ferry ride and then it was time to clean the apartment. The whole day is a little blurry to be honest..
Ash and I in our kitchen :)
After a long day of unpacking, travelling, and little sleep Max, Ashlee, and I headed to Romer’s Burger Bar perfectly located within walking distance from our house.
I need to stop eating burgers.
Considering it was a Friday night, Romer’s was busy. So our meal took just slightly longer than it was supposed to – which we didn’t really care about because we were sipping vino and relaxing. BUT our server graciously brought over theses amazing drunken donuts.
SAY WHAT?! SWOOOOOON. I died, mainly because I was stuffed and was certain nothing else could fit into my stomach, but also because it was incredible service. Well done Romer’s. Not to mention that the donuts were warm, soft, and so delicious.
Following that, Ashlee and I jumped in a Zipcar van and went on a little adventure in the POURING rain and drove to Port Moody (40 minute drive) for a free table. It was about 930 at this point. 2 sleepy girls full of burgers and donuts, pouring rain, darkness, first time driving a bigger van, and you have yourself a great time.
Long story short, we didn’t get the table.. it wouldn’t fit through the lady’s front door soooo it was essentially a waste of our time :) Perfect.
And since this post isn’t long enough already.. I will leave you with the rest of the weekend highlights.
My first sunny run in Vancouver (knee is doing alright btw!).
Friend visits and strolls.
Another early morning and a long drive to Nelson.
And now I am home.
This is what I look like while I am home :)
Time to relax, catch up on sleep, and savour every moment of family time.
Hope you guys have a great week!
