away

had a great weekend i surprised dave with a night at a hotel and just time to spend together. to start it off i got a swanky new haircut (see post below). saturday dave and i left for winnipeg to take in the Multiple Sale which if you are a regular reader you will remember from the past. we really benefit from these sales twice a year. such a great way to get good stuff cheap! we spent the least amount of money yet and got every thing we needed. stocked up on summer essentials... the only thing i am unsure of is the soft fuzzy chair thing we got.. kind of creeps me out not being able to throw it in the washer. its sitting in the van still.. we will see.
after we met our friend Lindsey and dined at this fabulous sushi place. oh how i miss sushi.. after living in vancouver nothing quite compares and if only i would have realized how hard it would be to find cheap good sushi i might have consumed more. we spent alot of money on the littlest rolls i've ever seen. but every bit was more than worth it. spending time with lindsey is always a highlight. after we satisfied our sweet tooths with 7-11 slurpees and took off for the mall... dragged dave around and got a few things. i finally spent my gift money at Lululemon... now for those of you unaware of my desire for all things lulu you may want to skip this part. i am in LOVE with lulu.. the structured, soft, gorgeous hoodies and the unbelievable comfy yet glammed up yoga pants. i feel comfy just thinking of it.. oh and maybe because i am now wearing my very own hoody. its glorious and reversible and worth the $100. thanks to my lulu angel.
had the best drink ever at starbucks thanks to lindsey's professional help. an iced caramel macciato. oh wow.
after shopping we dropped lindsey off and headed to our hotel. we got drinks on a patio and basked in the sun. then we had a yummy supper and relaxed. wouldn't you know it though at 6:45am we were both wide awake.. the best part though was that we could sit in bed, drink coffee and watch tv and not have to worry about kids.
we had reservations to eat brunch at our hotel.. they do one of those huge spreads that costs a bundle.. our brunch came with our room package. seriously this was amazing. tables after tables set up with gorgeous food, smoothie bars, omelet stations, desert corner including a chocolate fountain. it was incredible. we took our time savoring everything.. including crepes, french toast with berries, asian steak, roast beef, olives and dozens of different cheeses, shrimp, smoothies and of course chocolate dipped fruit and the smoothest creamiest chocolate cheese cake. yea yum!
slowly made our way out.. i was so full. ended up stopping at a few more shops and then headed home. i missed the boys.... apparently they did not miss me. totally snobbed me when we got home and ran at dad with arms wide open. no love for me. noah developed a cold over the weekend and has been pretty cranky since we've been home. hoping he gets over this one fast.

Heath, It's SHwanky, not swanky.

We went to the Multiple Sale here in our city this past weekend too. First time I'd been and because we are members of the association we got in an hour early and were outta there before the general public got in. So happy with my deals! Know it's going to be a tradition every spring and fall - got the next date on my calendar already.
Glad to hear you got away for couple time. We all need that now and then.
