Victoria, afternoon tea, and The Little Mermaid

So this past weekend Dave and I went to Victoria for the weekend to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. It’s pretty crazy that it’s been two years already. It was a pretty sweet trip. We went to the Titanic exhibit, Craigderoch Castle, and then had afternoon tea at the Empress. That was quite lovely.

I also found two vintage shops which were very exciting; one was called “Patch” and the other was “Flavor” I wish they weren’t so far away, because I pretty much decided that all my clothes have to come from there. Oh well…I guess I’ll just have to search a little closer to home for exciting clothes…

It was good times though. We stayed at the Strathcona Hotel, which is a major party hotel, but it was cheap. On Saturday night we were awoken at about 1:30am by a swarm of drunk girls in the hallway banging on some guys door. Apparently he had gone in there with a girl that they thought was ugly, so by banging on the door and screaming, they thought that it would fix the situation. Oh, drunk people are funny.

Since the weekend though, we’ve decided that we are going to start a tradition of having afternoon tea when we come home from work. I like the idea a lot. So we’ve been coming home, having tea and scones, and then a very light supper late. It’s amazing. Anyone who doesn’t have afternoon tea, should.

I also bought “The Little Mermaid” album from iTunes the other day. Oh, what happy memories it brings back.
