Five on Friday

ONE
I am still loving my new blog design so much. You know when you have a new piece of furniture or art print on your wall and every time you walk by it you feel so happy? That's how I feel about this now...except I don't really walk by it. Haha.

TWO
My condo finally switched from AC to heat this week. The AC was pumping in the hallways before and it was seeping into my unit. Freezing! Bring on the cold weather Toronto!

We're in the midst of our annual 2 week long charity campaign at work. Myself along with my team have organized the entire campaign and I love doing it but man, that plus our normal jobs calls for some seriously long days. We are only on day 5 of 10 of the campaign and we have already hit our goal of raising $37,000.00! I wish I could say for what charity but it will give away where I work as it's our own charity! It really does make me feel so good knowing that I am helping others. Plus, games days, ice cream, bake sales, draws, wine swaps, jeans weeks, and more make for some fun days at work. We are actually having a yoga class at lunch today which I cannot wait for.

FOUR
I am dragging Mr.C to the new outlets, Toronto Premium Outlets that opened up about 45 minutes from us. Sidenote, does anyone understand why they are called Toronto Outlets when it is clearly in Milton? Anyways, I cannot wait to score some deals. Hello J Crew, Restoration Hardware, Nike, Banana Republic, Gap, Kate Spade and more. I am actually mainly looking forward to seeing how the deals compared to the outlets across the border which I go to a few times a year. I am sure Mr. C is going to have a fun filled day!!!! :D

 
FIVE
I was so happy to see baby George earlier this week during his Baptism. Kate was looking fabulous, as always, and little George is just precious.  Cutest little famjam.  I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be a fly on the wall in the room for a day with them and see what their everyday life is like. I am fascinated by the Royals. The end.

  1. Bring on the cold weather Toronto?? Pfft. You can keep the cold weather. For yourself. I am not a fan. :(

    Congrats on your workplace raising so much money!!

    Umm.. why had I not heard of these outlets?? I'm so glad I follow your blog so I can learn things like this!! I hope you blog about whether it's worth it or not or if it's better to drive across the border to Buffalo.
    I remember when everything was called Toronto and then they changed it to GTA and it got all confusing.

  2. Congrats on the charity. I work for a nonprofit and know what it's like. We just had one of our annual events and had a record breaking year. Can't say where as I like to keep where it is quiet too!

  4. I love all the pictures of Prince George too...he is SO cute!! And that Christmas plate is really sweet...can't wait for the holidays! It has been pretty bitter cold (still not below 0 though) in Halifax this week too!

  5. You need to let me know about the Premium Outlets. I frequently drive to the ones near Syracuse NY (love them!) Anxious to find out if they compare to the ones across the border!

  7. That photo of the hot chocolate and peppermint bark - I need it right now! It's still like 70 in my apartment without anything on, but I'll probably be turning on the heat soon!

  8. The royal family is the cutest! I would love to see how they are with the baby. And we have Houston Premium Outlets here and that is where I'm likely headed this weekend - the Kate Spade store is so good!

  9. Ummm, do tell me more about this Outlet mall. When I visit in December I was planning on convincing my sister to go to Buffalo to hit up the outlets, butttt are you telling me this may be on par? Do keep me updated!

  10. HI Sarah..yay..Another Canadian blogger! I am your newest follower:) I live in the West Coast, and I Love all things Royal, too:) Just wanted to pop by and say hello.

  11. I've noticed that most outlet malls are far into the suburbs, but take on the name of the large city they're close to. Very strange! And I, too, am fascinated by the royals! I wonder if Kate ever gets messy hair or loses her temper? She's always so well put together! She's my style and demeanor inspiration!

  12. I couldn't agree more about the Royals Family! I'd love to just see what it's like to be THEM :) I think Kate is BEAUTIFUL.. perfect role model for you girls (AND GIRLS MY AGE!) ha!

    PS - I wanna go shopping with you! Sounds like an awesome place! :)

  14. My husband went to the outlets the other day in search of a new dress polo for work and said he was pretty disappointed in them. But, he's also a guy that really doesn't like to shop. Can't wait to hear how they are!
