Life lately

Here are some things that have made me smile in last little bit :)


Went for lunch with my sister! It was like a "it's-still-kind-of my-birthday" kind of lunch :) I got a grilled chicken and brie sammich, an iced dark mocha and a chocolate and raspberry mousse tart! Yum!


My friend introduced me to this hilarious british show called My Mad Fat Diary. It's on youtube, check it out :D


This Easter poster I made! Complete with glitter :)

Being so tired and out of it that when my laptop said it had low battery, I tried to plug in the laptop charger to my phone. Silly. 



A french fry made its way into the hash browns bag. Thought it was cute :3

Leaving a tip in change in the shape of a smiley face :)


I hope you have a lot of little moments this weekend that make you smile! :)

My birthday!

This last Friday was my birthday! It was a busy week filled with little outings! It started off with lunch with my mom on Tuesday at the super sweet Applewood in Delta. They have a whole bunch of scrumptious teas, super fluffy dinner rolls that are a third cheddar, a third plain and a third whole wheat - loved it! I had a spinach and cheese roll and a salad with lemon poppyseed dressing. So cute right? They even have coloured sugar in the sugar bowl! Oh, and I decided to kind of dress up :)






Thursday I had Japanese food with friends at my favourite Japanese restaurant: Akasaka in guildford. I made a reservation to make sure we got a booth! Every time I go here I make sure to get the asparagus bacon, soooo good!

Then Friday I took a day trip to Victoria with my boyfriend! We caught the 7:00am ferry (meaning I woke up at 5:00am!). We both got the Traditional Breakfast: eggs, meat, and toast! We also saw two groups of killer whales!

Once we got to Victoria we first wandered the mall, but it was still early so nothing was really open. Next went downtown and spent a long time looking at all the cutesy shops. As we were walking down the street I spotted Murchie's! Every time I go to Victoria with my family I go to Murchie's but never eat there. So this time, I made sure to get some food! It was super fancy and super delicious! I had the Victoria fog and the Roma.


Then we headed to the next mall and spent a good time there (mostly in Toys R Us). Next, we headed to Uptown, a really nice shopping area. After that we went to Westcoast Waffles  and had the most amazing waffles ever! Boyfriend got the Pizza and I got the Johnny Mac which is with bacon, apple, brie and basil! Yummiest thing ever.



That day ended with catching the 9:00pm ferry, drinking hot chocolate and trying not to fall asleep then passing out at soon as I got home, just before midnight.

Saturday ended up being a beautiful sunny day! Me and my family went out for Japanese food for dinner. We were supposed to have Greek food, but the restaurant was sadly closed. After dinner I went to see Oz the Great And Powerful with my boyfriend. I wore this gorgeous dress that he bought me!


We also decided to pig out at the theatres! 



And that was my birthday week! Thanks for reading! :D

Grilled zucchini and toast

Here's probably one of the most "gourmet" snacks that I made whilst living in a dorm room. It was also one of those spur of the moment kind of recipes. Like "I dunno what to eat.. Let's find the ingredients I have and put them together". Turned out really scrumptious! And also super simple.





I'm sure you can tell from the pictures but all it is is toast, cream cheese and zucchini.

Ingredients:
  • Bread
  • Cream cheer
  • Zucchini (or other veggies) 
  • Oil
  • Garlic and/or onion and/or spices (if you fancy)

Directions:

Toast your bread by cooking it in a frying pan with a bit of oil until it's nice and toasty. Then add a later of cream cheese and set aside. Cook veggies  with a bit of oil (and spices, onion and garlic if using) then add these to your toast with cream cheese! (I cut mine into cute little bite sized pieces)
