Feeling Fancy

Most weekends, I have grand ambitions of getting dressed, going out, doing things and getting things done. Most weekends, I don't get out of my pjs. Last weekend despite the fact that I'd got dressed, semi-styled my hair (the toque hides the messy bits), put make-up on and was ready to go, I still almost talked myself out of venturing into the cold. But I made it outside (dragged this guy with me) and man it was cold. Tights are just not warm enough some days.

We didn't make it very far, just a quick trip around this semi-frozen lake and a short photo op, and then we rushed back home for some hot chocolate. Speaking of which, I need to buy some more, and some more Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur to go in it!

This is a lot of photos of me, I hope you feel less awkward about it than I do. I really like these colours - I hear that orange is hot right now... But whatever is in, I'm glad my wardrobe isn't so black and grey these days.

To the Fort

Yesterday, I met my friend Jenn for lunch. We headed across the river to Fort Langley to a little tea shop called the Little White House. We both had the quiche of the day and it was delicious! After lunch we strolled around the small town and because we are incredibly awesome, took some time for a cheesy photo op. *Cough* See below... we're just heading out of town on a Westbound train.

It was incredibly cold out, but a beautiful day. It is nice to see the sunshine on a weekend after so many dark days of rain. I have been terrible for taking pictures lately, except of course on instagram, but, lest I forget what little I know about using a camera, I'm determined to start getting out and taking more.
