We had arranged to meet friends for dinner one night and do brunch with some other friends on the Sunday.
In between we were on a mission to buy a few things that are not available locally
I had written a list so I would not forget anything.
Lists are necessary these days as I seem to suffer from sporadic memory recall.
(especially when I go grocery shopping!)
Here's how our hotel looked upon arrival.
Robson Street was under a deluge of rain and puddles were deep and unforgiving.
(I did not bring boots)
New oven mitts from Williams Sonoma
Diptyque candle from Holt Renfrew

Hostess signature style in black and white.
Nine West red ballet flats!
My heart beat a bit faster and I was all aflutter when I spied these shoes.
They have been on my wish list for over 2 years!
(I'll wear them with red lipstick)
if you see me wearing these you can be assured there will be joy in my heart and I'll be stepping lightly.
(a tad under $100)
I surveyed the red flats at Holt Renfrew and they were lovely...
Prada, Lanvin, Ferragamo's
I cannot justify spending $500 on one pair of shoes.
Our scents were getting low so we stocked up on those too.
Mr. HB's Terre d'Hermes
Chester is checking out the goods.
I've worn this one for several years now.
Crisp clean with top notes of citrus.
Chester employing his "nose"
he sniffs anything new that comes into The Humble Bungalow.
He was a naughty boy last night.
He knocked over a can of pop that was on the counter top
it exploded and completely saturated the rug
covered the floor
the fridge, stove and dishwasher with a sticky icky mess.
I nearly lost it...
(I sort of did)
as it was after 8 and the kitchen had been cleaned
we were weary after working all day
and were ready for a relaxing hour or so of PVR'd programming.
It took many cloths and lots of water and cleansers to clean this up.
Chester was banished to the hobby room while I grumbled and fumed
rolled up my sleeves and got down on my knees
and worked up a sweat tackling this job.
Mr. HB saw a side of me that I am not proud of...
As soon as we let Chester back upstairs
he cuddled up beside me on the couch and gave me lots of kitten cuddles.
Soothing ~ calm.
Oh I almost forgot
we also went to IKEA and found some new slip covered love seats,
Xmas wrap, candles, and some kitchen gadgets.
I'll post a picture of the new love seats when they are delivered and in place.
In the meantime I've got to get organized in the kitchen and both cats are on the prowl for their dinner.
Stay tuned for more weekend highlights
until next time...
