Starting Stripe

I got a little stripey this past weekend, by starting on a granny stripe blanket. I have a bunch of medium weight yarn from Handmade Hugs - I hope it's enough to make a blanket. I'm changing colour every three rows and weaving in ends as I go, so there's less bits to deal with at the end.

I got a new thermos cup from David's Tea - perfect for having a hot drink that stays hot throughout an entire performance. Nice on the vocal chords, and nice on the eyes too. I love this shade of minty green - and I had a wee cupcake to match.

2015 Ovation Awards

This past weekend was the Ovation Awards, held at the Vancouver Academy of Music.
It shares a parking lot with the planetarium, which is such a cool building.
I was so busy all night, I only managed to snap one blurry picture of this thank you chocolate as I was leaving. I sold 50/50 tickets, took pictures of the show, and presented an award. I was also nominated for an award for "Into the Woods," which was great fun, even though I didn't win. But my husband won for Outstanding Music Direction for "Hairspray." He is SUCH a superstar!!

Happy 10 years!

Today me and the hubs are celebrating 10 years of marriage! Can you believe it? I can't, time sure flies when you're having fun. 

 I don't think we've aged too much, have we??
We already did a bit of celebrating last week at Seasons in the Park, and will celebrate again this Monday. Tonight, however, on our actual anniversary, we are both busy perfuming in two different shows! Ha, that's us, non-stop theatre. Happy anniversary to us!

Baby bear set

I'm sort of addicted to making little baby sets with my Kay's Crochet skip blade tool. Here is another one I made with a lovely mint green picot edge border. The matching bear was a little amigurumi man that I made ages ago. He had some funny shorts on and I just couldn't make his outfit work properly. So I turned him into a bear!
Look - another happy customer :)

Dine Out Vancouver: Seasons in the Park

Last week me and the hubs went to Seasons in the Park in Queen Elizabeth Park. They have a great view!
We try to get out to a new restaurant during the Dine Out Vancouver festival every year.
It usually happens close to our wedding anniversary, so it's a nice present to ourselves.
This was my amazing salmon. MMM
And this is the hubs' amazing steak.
And not one, but two desserts! Carrot cake:
And creme brûlée. Oh boy.
It was a great night out, and a special treat for a random weeknight. And each of our 3-course meals was only $30 each! (Salads not pictured, we gobbled them up too quickly.)
