Last weekend G and I had a rare weekend away from home to celebrate our anniversary. We had close friends watch our dog and left right after I was done work Friday afternoon.
We had an amazing time and completely spoiled ourselves with awesome food. All you can eat sushi? Denny’s for breakfast?! Costco icecream cones! We are easy to please lol
Saturday evening we had our big date, which included tickets to see the Regina Symphony perform Carmina Burana. And let me tell you: Saskatchewan can bring it. They had a choir of over 350 accompanying the orchestra, and when the opened up with O Fortuna, I was completely blown away. By the ending reprise I was in tears, it was so beautiful. G and I have always enjoyed going symphonies so I was really happy the timing worked out for us to be able to go when we were in the city.
Sunday we were able to take our time getting ready in the morning and after checking out we did our grocery shopping before heading back home. I was able to redeem $120 worth of PC points and only had to spend a little over $9.00 on groceries at the Superstore. Woohoo! Sadly though we spent pretty much that same amount (the $120 not $9 haha) stocking up on meat at Costco. But I guess it’s grilling season and even though it cost a lot all at once it’s a hell of a lot cheaper that purchasing it at the grocery store here. So at least we are stocked for a long while.
Overall it was really lovely to get away, even if it was for the weekend. It was nice to get all ready and excited for our date. That sounds so lame but I’m glad I still have these feelings after 8 years of being together J
