weekend snapshots

this weekend was super duper busy!
saturday afternoon, we dropped the girls
off at my parents house
 my parents wanted to take the girls camping--in their backyard!
hubs and i took advantage of our "grown up" time
and headed to fort langley

we walked around and hit up a few of the antique shops
(side note: our antique shops up here are not necessarily very good and
are always overpriced!)

nevertheless, it's nice to have a lookie loo
and it just so happened that i spied this sweet tea cup
to add to my collection

after our lovely stroll we had made plans with my sisters
my future bro-in-law, our favorite couple and one of our good friends
to meet for dinner at this charming cafe.

everything was quite delicious
but let me tell you, this apple pie was devoured in about two seconds
by my hubs and me-- i knew i should have got my own piece!

after dinner we headed back to our house to watch insidious
ok, i must clarify that i haven't watched a horror movie in years
this one pretty much scared the living daylights out of me that
i swore off horror movies forever
so unfortunately, i couldn't tell you if it was scary or not
because a blanket was over my head most of the time

the next day we slept in 
(is 7:40 a.m. considered sleeping in? for parents like us it is!)
and picked up my sisters and future bro-in-law 

we headed into the city for some brunch at the red wagon cafe

there was a little bit of a wait
but the food was incredible and the service was excellent
(if you are a local, it's a definite must try!)

my hubs and future-bro-in-law got the pulled pork sandwich

my sis got the rueben sandwich which boasted home made corned beef

and i got the crisp pork belly

after brunch we hit up a local farmers market
to purchase some "pesticide free" veggies
(as my sis likes to refer to them)

and then made our way towards an antique fair
like i have mentioned before, vancouver doesn't have much
of a antique/vintage selection ( we are still such a young city)
but hubs and i decided to go anyways because of the "what if" factor

and of course, we didn't see much 
but just as we were about to leave, 
i spotted this sweet rusty milk container
and the sweetest part? it was 50% off!
(pays off going on the last day right before they close!)

and then on the way home we grabbed some of our favorite
bubble tea for the ride home

then we picked up our sweet girls and headed to a birthday party
see! told you it was super duper busy weekend!

what was your weekend filled with?

We did a small birthday outing at an 80s style cafe , went vintage shopping and now I am getting all ready for back to school tomorrow !

Delicious looking food pictures!

And as far as Insidious goes... I think it did get kind of cheesy towards the middle-end where you realize what is actually happening, but it still absolutely terrified me. And I LOVE scary movies but don't usually think they're scary enough. I will never think of the song "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" the same way again!

All that food looks so good! I need to make an apple pie soon, but I filled my day with baking bouchons au chocolat and shortbread. Next up: brownies.

It must be so nice to live by your parents! And ugh, I am NOT a scary movie person. There were even parts of Lost that I would cover my eyes from.

Bree said...

You had a packed weekend! :]
That's good that you were able to have time to hang out without the kids. That's always a must. Antique shops, food, and farmers market are the best!

XoXo, Bree
