Happy Valentine’s Day!  Do you have any fun or romantic plans for tonight?  Every year, Justin makes me a delicious Valentine’s dinner (since he’s the cook in the family).  Restaurants typically offer limited menus with inflated prices on Valentine’s Day, so Justin and I usually do a pre- or post-Valentine’s dinner at a restaurant on the weekend instead.

 

These photos were taken last weekend after the big snow storm.  Friday was a snow day for me, as it was for many others in the Greater Toronto Area.  I live in downtown Toronto but work in a suburb 30 minutes away, so driving to work in the morning was out of the question.  We spent the day watching the chaos on the streets below from the warmth of our apartment.  We had a good chuckle watching several people actually skiing down the streets of the city, definitely a sight you don’t see everyday.

 

I hope you and your sweetheart have a wonderful day together.  To all the single ladies (and gents), I hope you are doing something to spoil yourself today!

Smurf

As a child, I use to LOVE the Smurfs!  I watched that cartoon all of the time, and Smurfette was obviously my favourite.  I had nearly the entire collection of little collectible figurines (that I’m now kicking myself for not keeping), and would have so much fun playing with with my little brother.  So, you can understand why my reaction to Justin calling me a Smurf in this outfit would be both positive and negative.  He so gently stated that my blue socks made it appear like I had blue skin and therefore looked like I should be strolling through the Smurf Village instead of heading to the office.  I would have been much more annoyed than I was if I could have just stopped myself from laughing so much.  For the record, I liked this outfit, and not one other person at work that day called me a Smurf. I know this look isn’t for everyone but fashion is about having fun and taking risks, so that’s exactly what I did while staying true to my own style.
