Welcome to the Wonderful World of Melissa (and Michael)
05 January, 2012
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's celebration. Mike and I were blessed to be able to spend time with both of our families, and our extended families. Our Christmas celebration kicked off with a trip to Canada for the Christmas party on my mom's side. We were able to go a day early and decided it would be fun to go downtown Toronto (Mike had never been!). We convinced my Grandma to join us, so my parents, brother, Grandma, and Mike and I enjoyed a fabulous day downtown.
We took the GO Train from Whitby to Toronto. From there we decided to walk around a bit. We went to the CN tower (below) as well as a stadium.
Walking around caused us to work up an appetite so we had to find a place to go for lunch. We all voted to try something new, so we went to an Arab restaurant. It was absolutely delicious! We got a fabulous deal (sandwich and salad for like $5.99!)
I started with a tabouli salad. I'd never had tabouli before and I was impressed.
The star of the show was the Shawarma I ordered. It was out of this world delicious!
Mike also had a salad...tomatoes with cabbage and tabouli.
After lunch, we continued our tour. We ventured over to the city center and saw this beautiful Christmas tree. We had to have our picture taken of course!
The next stop was the Eaton center. I wanted to go to Lululemon and H&M since we don't have those stores close to us. It was fun to be part of all the excitement in the mall.
Our last event of the day was a subway ride. We had no destination, just wanted the experience. Of course it just happened to be the busy part of the day, but that just added to the fun.
We had a ton of fun in Toronto. I have pictures of our family party to share later--don't want to go into picture overload!
I am a daughter of The King. I keep very busy...I am the office manager at a busy counseling practice, an AVON rep, and a youth leader for high school. I married my best friend on October 9, 2010...we couldn't be happier! I love to spend time with my husband and friends, cook, bake, sing, blog, read, write, paint, and laugh!
