Another Weekend Away

I headed to Halifax on the weekend with Jay & Lisa M. We drove down after work on Friday, stopping on the way for an excellent meal at Montanna’s in Moncton. By the time we got to my parents place, it was getting pretty late, so we chatted with mum for a bti and then called it a night.

We got up on Saturday morning and we were treated to a fantastic breakfast – worthy of keeping us full and energized for a full day of shopping. And that’s just what we had. We hit Dartmouth Crossing, Halifax Shopping Center and Mic Mac Mall – all in about 8 hours, with only a couple of short breaks for caffeine and a quick snack. By the time we got back to my parents place, it was getting on 7 PM and we were all starving. We all headed out to Halifax for an amazing meal at The Keg. I love thier steak topped with pecans & goat’s cheese. Mmm… can imagine the taste now as I type this… :-)

After dinner, we opted to enjoy a quiet night in and headed back to my folks place to put a movie in. We wound up watching “Night at the Museum” which was really cute! I think we all had really low expectations and we were all pleasantly surprised!

Sunday started early with another amazing breakfast, and then we packed our stuff up and went in to downtown Halifax to do a wee bit (3 hours) more shopping around the downtown area before heading back to Saint John.

Thanks, Jay and Lisa, for coming along – I had a blast!

I got home and wanted to crash, but I still had a 1/2 finished closet rennovation taking over my bedroom, so I decided to tackle it. Boy, did I ever! It took me until 2 AM, but I wound up cleaning out and organizing most of my clothes and shoes. I now have 6 garbage bags of stuff to go to either the Salvation Army or the Diabetes Association’s Clothesline. I’ll have to give them a call.
