I’ve had a busy couple of weeks … did a quick visit over to Vancouver for my annual visit to see my niece Heidi who comes to town every year to see family.
I picked up Heidi from her Mum’s and we headed over to the renovated Waldorf Hotel to meet my parents for dinner at Nuba.
They did such a lovely job with the hotel … Every detail of the hotel is amazing!! I was having a mid-century KITCH attack!! Check out the Tiki door handle to the restaurant!
The restaurant was so beautiful … ugh. Those chairs. I want! I WANT!!
We had a great dinner. Heidi and I split La Fest which included olives, hummus, falafel, baba ghanooj, etc etc,
We were STUFFED and very happy. 🙂
In a couple more years Heidi and I can visit the Waldorf Tiki Bar!! I can’t wait. 🙂
We headed back to my parents house where we sat around in the kitchen catching up with Heidi and she played us some of her favourite songs that were in her iPod shuffle. The girl has pretty good taste in music … would like to see more punk rock in there but what’s an Auntie to do?
Heidi and I hit the hay but the fun didn’t stop … we had a little facetime visit with Fergus.
The next day we wandered around Vancouver with my parents. They were searching for the “perfect suitcase” … (they are always looking for the perfect suitcase).
And while they were checking out hard-shell vs soft shell luggage I tried my best to inspire Heidi to think about what she’s going to do when she graduates.
I was pushing for travel … 🙂
Fingers crossed she heard me …
How on earth do you inspire a 16 year old to start thinking about the future. *laugh*
Heidi and I said good-bye to my parents and we hit up our favourite dollar store to look for goodies. Check out this doggie shirt we found. Doesn’t that look like someone Photoshopped a Fergus head onto a weird poodle body?? Oh my dog those ears are hilarious.
We also did a little thrift store shopping and found this beauty … we decide not to buy it because it makes me feel funny in the pants. 🙂
I had a fantastic visit with everyone … I love my family! 🙂
