I was MIA this weekend for a much needed Internet free break. Hubby and I took a small trip up to our neighboring city Edmonton for two days sans kiddos. We did the West Ed shopping of course, stayed at a nice hotel and ate some of the best cupcakes I’ve ever had. So a few things that made the weekend extra special?
Socks. Here’s the deal–socks make me happy. I don’t know why, but they do. I like colorful, interesting socks, and if I can find the fuzzy kind that are oh-so-warm and soft, I MUST BUY THEM. I like socks like other women love shoes. Besides, with Calgary being on the cusp of winter, a good pair of socks can mean the difference between retaining all ten toes or not come Spring.
Second of all, We discovered a Cupcake Coffee House of awesome proportion: FUSS. And, bombarded by the sheer weight of yummy choices, we opted for the mini twelve pack sampler rather than the big kahuna cupcakes. Oh the decadence of nibbling on cupcakes for the next day. My favorites were probably West Side Story and The Full Minty. All of them were winners tho. If you find a FUSS in your neighborhood, try it. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
And the cherry on the weekend cake you ask? I picked up Catching Fire at Chapters! I’ve been holding off getting it because it is always sooooo hard to wait for the next book. I know once I read book 2 it’s back to w-a-i-t-i-n-g to see how the series wraps up. GAH! I am so impatient, but I’ve lusted for this book ever since finishing The Hunger Games, so I finally caved and bought it.
So that was my weekend. How was yours?
