I'm lucky enough to have my girlfriend coming out for another couple of days today.
We will be hitting the consignment stores and then tomorrow head downtown for an installation art exhibit by Mike Nelson, supper and a play, Metamorphosis.
Last week when she was out we squeezed in lunch out… we did have croissant sandwiches too…not just dessert. Although sometimes life is better when you start with dessert.
These petits choux were so good that I actually dreamt about them 2 days ago! LOL
I dreamt I was in France telling two girls that I met that my diet was strictly petits choux (cream puffs).
They were quite impressed.
We shopped at Anthro
This blouse (that I'd pinned a while ago) is my Christmas present from my girlfriend.
Sweet! Thanks girlfriend!
I couldn't leave this recipe book behind. There is a recipe for les petits choux!
It's like it read my mind.
I also scored some floral jeans and a beaded clutch all on super sale. Pretty much the only way I'll buy stuff from Anthro anymore.
Then a bit more shopping because we couldn't get into this great photography exhibit. I curse you Royal Ontario Museum! Shame on trying to charge someone a King's ransom just to see the photography exhibit.
You and the coat check gal that refused to give us our money back after the coats had only been there for 3 minutes when we realized we weren't willing to pay $45/person for a 30 minute exhibit.
On the bright side I never would have found these lovelies
After all that hard work we needed a break and headed straight to the rooftop bar for some well deserved libations.
Then it was off to supper served in another museum (thankfully not overcharging) with a play afterwards, Tuesdays With Morrie. Have you read that book? Not a dry eye in the house. So fun to see the play in such an intimate historic space. There were probably only 30 people in the room with the 2 actors. Very intense and emotional.
The next day we took in one of the best art exhibits I've seen in a while. Mary Pratt. A realist painter from Canada. Brilliant.
I can't say enough about her.
I could have spent the entire day in that exhibit, marvelling at her skill, but we had to hurry back to our spa appointments.
Yeah…it's a tough life but someone has to do it.
This is as close as I get to the celebrity lifestyle.

So you can see why I'm excited for another girls get together today.
Aren't girls days the best?
What is your favourite thing to do when you get together with your girlfriends?
