09.09.12 weekend wrap + weekly planning

Howdy, friends! How was your first unofficial weekend of fall? I must say that mine was spectacular. It was really nice to stay in the city all weekend and just do some stuff around the house, spend time with friends + Duncan and just chill out 🙂

Some highlights –

*Brushing shoulders with Jude Law (my big celeb crush). SWOOOON. I wasn’t ready with my camera (haven’t got over that yet), so I didn’t ever get to capture how close I really was to him, but.. I could have touched his arm if I wanted. How creepy. Duncan + I got tickets to see Anna Karenina at TIFF, starring Kiera Knightley and Jude Law. It was awesome to feel all the energy + excitement of the festival and to have the whole experience of hearing the director + actors speak about their roles, the process of making the film, etc. It really made me think of the film from an artistic standpoint as opposed to just a form of entertainment.

After the show, Duncan & I went out for dinner at the Rosewater Supper Club. I had a $50 gift certificate, so we used that towards the bill and it ended up being super reasonable! The restaurant is super fancy, so I felt a little weird snapping photos of my food, though I wish I could share it on here now! Duncan and I shared a salmon dish with a duck dish & had our FAVOURITE wine in the world, which isn’t sold anywhere in stores! YUM.

Other highlights

*A lazy Saturday morning. It was kind of nice to wake up to the sound of rain & not feel guilty rolling over and falling back asleep. I was craving a relaxing day around the house

*A long training run. I hit 18km! Woo hoo! Only a few more weeks ‘till race time.

*My friend Lara’s birthday party! HAPPPY BIRTHDAY! Such a good night with incredible people (& food!) 🙂



(My neck looks very giraffe-like there)

*The awesTRUCK Food Truck Festival @ EverGreen Brick Works.








Such a incredible way to spend a Sunday afternoon! I can’t decide which dish I liked most, but I’m leaning towards the caramel apple pie cupcake from the Cupcake Diner 😉
