I had a really fun day last Thursday, just spending time with my boyfriend and his family as well. I figured I would share some parts of our day, starting with what I wore.
A little back story to this top; my cousin has a friend that has a little shop; she makes her own designs and sells tshirts, posters, calendars all sorts of things. I found out about her when my cousin wanted to send me some things, as I always send all my cousins little items that I think they might like whenever a family member gets to visit. Anyways she wanted me to choose something from the shop but her friend ended up traveling out of the country so she couldn’t get them for me, and this happened twice. Ever since then I’ve been impatiently waiting to get my hands on some items, and unfortunately she does not ship internationally as the business is still small. I’m a big fan of the show Stanger Things on Netflix, I’m sure you’ve heard someone in your life talk about it.
I’m not really into graphic shirts but I love the design on both tshirts. The one I wore, as I mentioned, was the Stranger Things tee (I don’t know what’s wih me and rolling up the sleeves). I paired it with black shorts from a store called Giant Tiger (walmart like but smaller) and tied my hair up in a bun. It’s been pretty hot this last few days, which is surprising but I’m not complaining; I mean I love fall but that just means we’re closer to winter and no thanks.
We recently got a vinyl record player from amazon, in a very good price, a lot cheaper than some I’ve seen in stores and with the same features. David has tons of records from when he lived with his mom but the player got lost somewhere when they moved years ago. The only thing that sucks, it’s the fact that vinyl records can be pretty expensive, I mean to me even $25 it’s too much, if I wanted to listen to the album so badly I can just go on youtube or spotify and listen to it for free. But we found out about a store in a city about 40 mins from us so we decided to make a day of it. We were also planning on checking out an antique store. The record store was great! They had a great selection, I think my parents would enjoy it as its mostly music from their time, so I didn’t know a lot of the artists. They also had older music which I really enjoy such as Frank Sinatra, Dolly Parton, Elvis, Dean Martin and such. I work with the elder so I’ve come to really enjoy their music. I had a good time going through their selection and I’m so happy I found a few items. I spent $33CAD on Michael Jackson Thriller, Abba Arrival and a two in one album by Frank Sinatra, so a total 4 vinyl records.
As we were getting out of the car to go into the antique store, we found out that they had a power outage and didn’t know when they would be able to open to the public…darn! It was such a bummer but I hope we can go back some time. On our way back we picked up food from Burger King, which is slowly disappearing! I personally like it better than McDonald’s, I know! But back home its the opposite, BK is everywhere and people prefer it over McDonald’s, just as Coca Cola is everywhere and preferred over pepsi.
And at night we got together with David’s parents to celebrate his mom’s birthday. I was looking for a bag for myself and saw this on Aldo’s website, it was on sale and I thought it was perfect for his mom since she loves birds and she has 1 cockatoo and 2 Scarlett birds. I think it’s such a fun bag.
And since she likes apple pie, I decided to make her one. This is the second apple pie I’ve ever made but I think it turned out yummy. We ordered Chinese food for dinner and had the pie for dessert. We watched a movie and a couple episodes of the new show Mr. Mercedes.
And that was pretty much it. I had a great relaxing and fun day just spent with David and his family. I hoped you enjoyed this post, I’m glad I took a few pictures to remember it. Thank you for reading a have a great weekend!
