Last night, despite being sick, Reg and I went to the VanDusen Botanical Garden’s Festival of Lights. You can read and see way more about our magical night here.
I wore my cupcake monster hat that I made which is good because I came across the Abominable Snowman.
I think my hat scared him off. BTW, if you go, skip the gnome show. That scared us off!
I just had to take a photo of one of the biggest whisks I have ever seen!
But back to the lights! They have a wonderful little gingerbread house that the Grinch was checking out.
Gingerbread men were everywhere!
Don’t worry, I made sure Reg got kissed under the mistletoe. He is so cute!
Although there were lots of foodie options available and we were starving, we were on a budget.
No lemonade and mini donuts for us but that is OK.
I did donate to the Make a Wish Foundation though and lit a candle for someone I know who is going through cancer treatment.
These were one of our favourite decorations, they are made from water bottles! Can’t be Vancouver without an environmental message, I love it.
So I went home, made a soup with black-eyed peas for prosperity for the year and flavoured it with my friend Wayne’s homemade bacon! Now that was a fantastical foodie day. I don’t think it could have been more perfect. Other than me being sick of course.
