The Catch-Up

Happy Monday!

We had a pretty awesome weekend: Friday was Mike’s birthday so we headed to the Jay’s game with Eric + Amanda and then to Hemmingway’s in Yorkville for a few post-game drinks with friends. September 23rd also happens to be our friends Carlo + Ashley’s wedding date (next year!) so we celebrated that as well.

Oh, and did I mention I received the most perfectly timed cake delivery ever? La Rocca is celebrating their 30th anniversary on the 30th and sent along their Greatest Hits Anniversary Cake. Which we may or may not have consumed at 2 AM. Delish!

As promised, I headed to the North Toronto Flower Market on Saturday morning for some much-needed girltime with Steph and Lauren. We ended up at HomeSense. No one is surprised by this. I found the cutest little hamper for our ensuite + the perfect rug for our kitchen (finally). We also celebrated my Nonno’s birthday on Saturday night!

Sunday was home to a little dip in mood thanks to our usual fruitless house hunt in Bloor West. We walked into an open house for a modest little home only to find out it was listed at over $1.3 million. Driving all the way to the other end of Toronto at the Scarborough Bluffs cured our misery, though. I think we’ve found our new favourite spot for a stroll!

Have you ever wondered what a 14-hour flight feels like when you’ve paid $21,000 for your seat? YouTube star Casey Neistat got upgraded on his Emirates flight and filmed the whole thing. Prepare for jaw-drop.


Speaking of flights, this is by far one of the most fascinating things I’ve read in a long time. Read about the experience of being on Air Force 1 the day of the 9/11 attacks.

    Man, I can’t even fathom what we’re potentially going to be paying here to purchase a house. The 1mil homes here are dumps. Boarded up with wood, and rotten…. oh and almost every house you look at is guaranteed to be infested with termites. Wonderful! 

    Love watching Casey on YT! He always makes me smile.

  • spiffykerms Ugh, I feel for you! The market there sounds like the market here. I guess it’s only more shocking in Toronto because it escalated SO quickly and SF has always been $$$.
