Last weekend we did some packing, and this weekend was nice and relaxing. Saturday lounged all day, and then went to a late dinner at Marcel's Bistro on King Street - great French food, including soup, braised rack of lamb, and creme brulee - yum! It was nice to have a dinner where we got dressed up, took our time, had some wine, talked - so many times I feel rushed at restaurants, but going later after all the theatre crowd had left really helped.
Today Matt was packing for his 3 day trip to Ottawa for a conference, and we realized he has no black dress pants. Well he does, but they are too short and weirdly baggy in the legs. I FORCED him to the Eaton Centre and to Banana Republic for some new pants - and they were 25% off. Since I forced him to buy them, I gave him my BR gift card from my birthday last year that I still hadn't used - I know - so nice, but now he OWES me, and you never know when I'll pull that card out! Probably an extra super nice birthday present - Lululemon EVERYTHING! Oh yeah, and along with this shopping trip I also got a Lululemon Stride jacket - nice and long and fitted and wonderful.
I also took back the Coach purse my mom got me for Christmas, I didn't get anything new because they only had Spring stuff, but I'll probably get one suitable for travelling for our cruise. The Coach store people DIED when I pulled it out - people LOVED this purse, I feel bad now that I gave it up - it was an incredible deep purple colour, but the style just wasn't me. Unfortunately, it's into Spring colours now, so no more purple except for the pale stuff.
We came home and had an early dinner of fajitas, watched Shrek Forever After, and now he's continuing to pack while I blog. He's gone until Thursday, so I'll have the house to myself - maybe I'll start prepping for next semester like I should? More likely I'll just mark, eat chocolate, and watch girly TV. Yep - sounds like a plan. I think I'll attempt to go back to the gym this week too - wish me luck!
