Happy Easter weekend everyone!
Instead of moping around because this is yet another holiday that my HB and I aren’t able to spend with family, we’ve decided to get the heck out of town for a bit! Nothing too crazy, just a trip across the border to Buffalo, NY. I know it sounds silly, especially since Buffalo is nothing super exciting to local Torontonians, but I am really looking forward to getting away for bit. Since we moved to Toronto from Vancouver last July, the only trip we’ve been on was to Niagara Falls which was only a 1 1/2 hour drive away. Besides that we’ve just stayed in town, so I’m really looking forward to going somewhere new, even if just means checking out some outlet shops, going to the Cheesecake Factory, and taking advantage of happy hour in downtown Buffalo.
I’m also really looking forward to loosening my purse strings a bit. I was thinking about it and I honestly haven’t been clothes shopping since September (and that was just to get office clothes). I’m gonna be smart about it though and write a list of things I need that I know I can get for cheap in the U.S. The deals you can get in the States still boggle my mind. And don’t even get me started on their liquor prices. It’s like heaven! We’re being gouged over here! It’s ridiculous!
I’ll make sure to do a full recap plus a budget breakdown for next week, but otherwise have a lovely holiday weekend! And an especially happy Easter to my top 5 blogs of the week!
