So, first post of the year. It took me this long to post because I just came home from an awesome vacation a few days ago - the Christmas clutter is still very prevalent in my room, and I just can't get out of this vacation-feeling. I'm struggling to get back to the norm - so please bear with me! Warning, this post is about to get a bit more personal. I feel so blessed having been able to spend the first week of the year with my fiance, and although I am kind of having separation anxiety, I loved the trip overall.
We went to Toronto to visit the World's Biggest Bookstore which apparently closes in a few weeks (so if you're near there, you might want to check out the good deals).
I got a couple of silicone trays from there for cheap - as well as a couple of books and random stuff, of course.
|Super overcast weather, but it was all good.|
And then we drove to Ottawa (not on the same day, and it was our first roadtrip alone :3) just to skate on the Rideau Canal (nope, I don't really know how to skate) - and try the Beavertails. You guys, I must learn how to make those. They're better than funnel cakes. But they have yeast in the recipe I found online...so, it might take me a couple of tries before I get successful with them (I am terrible with yeast).
I also got two Star Wars silicone molds from the mall near there. Yep, I have an obsession with molds. I already know what I'll be making with them - so stay tuned for that!
And these here critters covered in cheese and bacon flavoring. And a scorpion lollipop, and some chocolate-covered ones crickets too. I must say, the cheese and bacon one tasted like corn nuts.
Long distance relationships are so hard. But reprieves like this remind me why I hold on. I apologize if this post isn't the normal DIY stuff that I usually do, but I just wanted to share with you guys what I have been up to :) Thank you for all of you who have supported this blog this past year, and I hope you will continue to support it this year.
