I had a great weekend, and although it was long for some folks, I get to be at work bright and early on this holiday, after a $16(+ tip) taxi ride to work, because I wasn’t smart enough to plan ahead for the “holiday hours” that the skytrain would be running on. Had I thought about it, I would’ve been able to carpool with someone.
If my weekend wasn’t so nice, I might be more bitter. What made it so nice you ask? Well let me tell you…
Saturday was my bf’s mom’s wedding. She married a wonderful guy, and the event was casual and fun was had by everyone. We went to a beautiful location in Deep Cove for photographs at a friend of the groom’s beachfront home. This house also happened to be 2 houses away from where Ben Affleck and J’Lo were staying while in Vancouver, and we caught a couple glimpses of them in their garden from the beach (although it’s very secluded, and they stayed mostly in the shadows).
After that it was on to the reception. The only words I have for that are “open bar”.
Sunday I spent out with the girls. Brunch with Violet and Meighan at a wonderful restaurant on Broadway & Vine called Kaya (best eggs bennie I’ve ever had), then meandering around West 4th where I got a great sweater at Plum. Then it was on to Granville Island with Vio to the public market. A bagful of fresh fruits, veggies, and bagels later I headed home for some pizza, tv, and bed.
