Hello Seattle!

Every time I type that it reminds me of the Owl City song.  I love their quirky tunes.  Smile

Before leaving Victoria I made a quick run to SB for a road latte.  Since they are offering BOGO on their seasonal drinks, I decided to take two drinks for myself!

Grande reduced fat egg nog lattes (not extra hot…this store is VERY vehement about this all of a sudden).  I ordered one in a vente cup and just dumped the other one in.  hehe.

That’s a boatload of caffeine for my boat ride.

My Victoria Clipper ride was smooth sailing (thank goodness!).  Too bad it was pitch freaking dark so I didn’t get to take any pictures…but I’ll be going back in the daylight so here’s hoping I get some shots then.

Upon arrival I got somewhat of a Birthday Party #5.  I know, I know…I’m so spoiled.  See the cupcake just for me?!  It came complete with a round of Happy Birthday (which I giggled the whole way through)…

And the stash of Coconut M&Ms John has been collecting for me at random convenience stores around Boston.  Also included in the loot from Boston was another SB mug, but I don’t seem to have a pic of that yet.

Aaaaand, the awesomest thing evah! iPig!  Remember when I saw these at the PNE this Summer and kicked myself for not buying one.

It’s got great sound for a little thing!

I contributed to the shindig with a bottle of my favourite BC red wine.  See Ya Later PING.

John made a trip to Whole Paycheque and built us a fruit and cheeeeese plate to serve as dinner and go along with our wine.

Not a bad way to start a mini-vacay, eh?
