At the 2016 Toronto Auto Show!

Note: I meant to post this yesterday. So let’s pretend today
is still Feb 16th…

Yesterday was Family Day in Canada, so it’s a four
day work-week (hurray!). To everyone that celebrated it hope you enjoyed it. Unfortunately, my family was busy but I had a wonderful day of lazing around my condo complete with using the condo’s gym for the first time in forever. Had to be somewhat productive so I didn’t feel guilty.

Besides pre-planned costs for my upcoming vacation to the UK and Iceland I was right back on track on my frugal budgeting.

Activities & Meals

My weekly Wednesday sports league was unexpectedly cancelled on us, so instead our team had an impromptu trip to a local bar instead. Thursday was the mid-season season premiere of How To Get Away with Murder so my friend, roommate and I had some drinks and watched the show. Saturday did some Body Pump and met up with my dad to go to the 2016 Canadian International Auto Show (got tickets for free through work). Valentine’s Day was spent with my BF and involved making homemade lasagna (and he made chocolate & peanut butter cheesecake for dessert), drinking wine and watching romantic comedy’s all night.
