Yesterday was our wedding anniversary. We decided to keep it low key and make a weekend of it.
I did some exploring and discovered a new cafe in Lower Sackville, Erin’s Sweets ‘N Things.
They had just opened less than a week ago!
Lower Sackville needs a cafe so I checked out one of their cookies. I call them chocolate drop cookies but they called them macaroons.
Which did not make any sense to me but wow, this was a HUGE cookie and as good as my own! I think I paid $2. Very promising.
I could not help but laugh when I saw this sign nearby. The former restaurant was, well, not very good. Looks like they want to put serve similar food in the future establishment but are emphasizing that this time, the food will be good.
I have not found any kitchen treasures at my thrift store in forever but I came across these two beautiful retro bowls. And a grey sweater. I need sweaters with winter coming. Each bowl was just a $1. Love it!
I had not been to Ripsters in a while and wanted to see the updates and maybe pick up something special. Their new competition down the road bites the big one. A huge box store with stuff in it, no displays and zero character. Unlike Ripsters who has great displays and the cutest witch I have ever seen. I wanted to take her home with me!
I just bought black utensils for my future Halloween foodie posts but we will be back to Ripsters for more! I love that store.
We ate popcorn and shared a KitKat while seeing the new Resident Evil movie which I liked but did not I loved. It’s complicated. I adore Milla though, damn, she kicks ass.
Reg took me to the Bulk Barn which absolutely hates having photos taken inside its store.
I think I spent the most on chia seeds ($9!) but I got some black licorice for Halloween foodie decorating, pecans for our favourite salad, bittersweet chocolate for chocolate-making, buttermilk powder, skim milk powder, bay leaves, black peppercorns… Ah I was in foodie heaven!
We did not end up doing a big dinner out. We know we are in for a long and challenging winter. We just wanted to spend time together and have some fun, including being such geeks hanging out at the new Mac store in town.
This was just what we needed.

Happy Anniversary <3
I love your wedding photo, its looks like you had a wonderful day ox
Happy Anniversary! Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. Ripsters looks like fun, and yes the witch is adorable. We managed to get to Spirit Halloween last weekend…spooky as ever. Loved it!
Happy Anniversary ! I have heard of those cookies called macaroons but in our house we call them haystacks 😛

Happy anniversary, you two! What a delightful weekend you had. You know, because of the backward N’s on that Chinese & Thai food sign, I suspect the restaurant has been taken over by Russian communists.

Chia seeds are evilly expensive!!!
Loved that Reg was a “silver fox” when you married him (my hubby blames his white hair on our marriage!!!!)
