On Friday, we sent John, Rich and Fred off to the golf course and Francey and I took the GO train into The Big City to meet up with Nancy, Lorna, Sue and Erin. Our plan was to meet at 5:10, go for our dinner reservation at 5:15 and then head to AMC Dundas Square for the 7:20pm showing of Sex and The City 2. We've been planning this event for months and a couple of months ago Francey decided to fly up from Atlanta to join us.
Once Francey and I got to Union Station, we decided to walk up Bay St. and go into The Bay. At the Queen St. exit, we walked past the Thierry Mugley counter where several makeup artists were giving free 'makeovers' and we thought "Why not?" and booked ourselves a time. What really got our attention was a guy dressed all in white sporting real feathered angel wings.
At dinner, Francey distributed the gifts she brought for each of us - little makeup bags embroidered with our nicknames from university in our sorority colours.
This is what 37 years of friendship looks like. ♥
After the movie, we went for drinks. Some of us enjoyed our first Bellini's. Much to our delight most of them had little red Sex and the City shoes on top.
I have learned that not only are Bellini's quite tasty they are very refreshing and probably quite nutritious ;-).
The weekend had only just begun. The next day, we got together chez nous for a barbeque. I spent the afternoon looking up Bellini recipes on the Internet and attempting various batches.
This morning, Francey, Rich and I took a walk along the Waterfront Trail. As we were driving down my street, Francey noticed this great blue heron on the roof of the neighbour's house. Crazy!
This evening we'll all be going over to Lorna's for another barbeque. I'm sure more fun will ensue.
I sure love this summery weather. Good friends and good weather --- it doesn't get much better than this.
