Christie Antique Show

I've suddenly reached the point in my life where driving to an antique show at 7:30AM on a Saturday with my parents sounds like a good time.  When and how did this happen to me? (please tell me that you're asking yourself the same question; I can't be the only one going through this mini identity crisis)  In any case, if this sounds like a good idea to you too, here's what you're getting yourself into.

Diner en Blanc

Starting off our 3-course meal right!
I don't know about you, but having a picnic dressed all in white sounds like a recipe for disaster; grass stains, food spillage and red wine catastrophes.  So, I was a little skeptical when a friend of mine invited me to check out Le Diner En Blanc especially when she said that we would have no idea where we'd be going and we'd have to pack a laundry list of items which included a table and chairs. It sounded like a lot of work for something I didn't quite understand.  I went anyway. Duh, of course I went anyway!

Spa Day in Budapest

Going on vacation often also means doing lots of walking.  Your muscles and your feet get tired and sore and you start to feel a little cranky.  That's why I think a week into a trip is the perfect time to spend the afternoon at the spa.

Flooring on a budget

A sequence of perfectly timed events led me to a much wanted basement makeover, which then also spilled into another bathroom renovation.  More on that another time.  My basement was covered in some pretty gross linoleum tile which I couldn't wait to get rid of, but my budget was not huge and by not huge I mean really small.  Gimme a break I'd already done one bathroom renovation and traveled twice this year.  So where do you go in Toronto when you need flooring on the cheap?  Well, it turns out that I've got a little secret and it's hiding at Runnymede and St. Clair.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch, New York

Part cabaret, part rock show, all awesome:  that's how I felt about Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Oh, and that Neil Patrick Harris guy, he was f'n fantastic.
