I hope you all had a great weekend! My long weekend was nothing short of jam-packed. It started on Friday when D. threw a surprise birthday party for me! I won't go into detail right now, I'll save that for another post (with pictures) but let's just say I was completely shocked and had absolutely no idea he was planning anything. My Birthday isn't for another week so he caught me totally off guard! More details on the whole shindig will be coming soon I promise : ). Saturday we went to my friend Laurie's Birthday dinner at an amazing Indian restaurant and this is what I wore. (It was casual.) The food was excellent, the service was impressive and we all had a great time although most of us were hungover from the night before : { On Sunday my family celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving in town.We were originally supposed to go out to my Aunt's Cottage but plans changed because my Grandmother wasn't feeling well enough to travel. But that's okay, we still enjoyed the beautiful day, stuffed our faces full of comfort food, ate too much dessert and tried on various scary Halloween masks. Yes, even my Grandmother. (We're a wacky bunch.) Here are some of my favorite foods I ate on Sunday:

And of course good old pumpkin pie : )

This is just a sample of what we ate that night. If you're asking "where's the turkey?" I'm a Vegetarian so no turkey for me. And I hate tofu so no tofurkey either! Yes, I'm the worst Vegetarian ever. I topped of the long weekend by finally stopping in to the first Victoria's Secret in Canada which just so happens to be in the city I live in and it is soooo nice. They even have make-up in that store. I'm not sure if that is common for all VS stores or not? Anyways, I picked up a few things that I won't mention because well, they're my underthings but I will tell you I got a free Victoria Bombshell tee with my purchases ; ) So all in all I had a great weekend and I hope you did too.

Have a great week!

Those jeans look great on you. And the food looks delicious! I love pumpkin pie. I hope your grandmother feels better soon!

Seems like you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Glad to hear it! I think most of the VS stores here have a make-up section in them too. I have a few of their lip glosses and they taste/smell delicious.
