I joke sometimes with the BF that we are a traveling couple since our first date took place between NYC and Boston (we absolutely LOVE Bean town) and ever since then we’ve traveled to many, many places … particularly since the BF likes to go on little outings during the weekend.
I love to travel, I do, but in the cold weather it’s kinda hard, especially when I don’t know any super awesome tricks to de-fog the windows in the car. So sometimes I’m a bit …. mmmm, anal about traveling, especially if driving is involved. I do the driving because a) it’s my car, b) I’m a control freak, and c) the BF is awesome with the GPS his parents got us for Xmas a few years back.
So today we went close to Lake Huron. During the summer we were in a lovely town, about 45 minutes from home, but there are a whole bunch of other little towns around the lakes. We’ve been to one of the cutest towns ever, one called Niagara-on-the-Lake which has a quaint Main St. filled with lovely little shops. Today’s town was no exception. Many little stores filled with glassy-artsy things, colourful clothes and a few with some very pricey tags. Nonetheless I managed to score a lovely and colourful mouse for the BF’s mom, a lovely owl dish (tiny, less than 5 in), and a kitty cat with a springy tail. I heart cats like you have no idea. Then we went to a jewelry/metal store where the had a BOGO sale, and I scored 2 lovely pairs to earrings, with squares and colourful bits.
We drove back to our place, stopped to get a cup of hot cocoa (with soy milk) and on I went to look at snow boots. Poor girl at the mall .. I feel for her. I went in to the store, tried about 3/4 pairs, left with none. Then, when we finally got home I scored a pair of snow shoes from Landsend for 35$, shipping included.
Overall it was a lovely day. I’m super happy with the findings, and most of all, the BF is happy because we didn’t spend the day bored at home, instead we visited Lake Huron, all frozen (or at least as far as we could tell), all lovely. Now I have to start collecting and storing all the ornaments and candles, and such.
How was your weekend?
