A Weekend in the Falls!

Sorry for the lack of blogging the last couple of days. I was in Niagara Falls, Ontario, with my family, as sort of a last hurray for my family (my dad got a promotion of sorts and is leaving the province next week for 2 years). I'm sure I will go visit him, but it's still a big change and my parents treated me and my sister to a little get-away, we even had a spa weekend!!!


On friday, after my exam from 7pm-10pm, it was hell reincarnated, we headed to the Hilton in Niagara. Our room was amazing! And it had the most incredible view!


 On saturday, my dad left for the day when me and my sister and my mom went to the spa; we got massages, and pedi's!! We had a nice breakfast at IHOP'S and then went to a Coach outlet mall, this was a bad idea for my bank account. Later that day I booked my plane ticket to Italy!!! Wahoo leave May 19th!! That night we had a nice dinner at East Side Marios, me and my sister walked over to the Casino to "look around". There's a bit of a story here, in Canada when your 19 you can enter Casino's, well I am turning 21 in July and feel firmly against Casino's and really wanted to say on my death bed that I had never been in a Casino or gambled for that matter, I think its a awful addiction, no ones happy in there and there's very few people who actually make a profit. However my sister broke me down, claiming that its "interesting" to see the different reactions and interactions between people in there; we saw one guy that looked like he hadn't moved from his slot machine in hours, tons of empty cups and his eyes were virtually closing. Sad sight. 


This morning, we woke up early, had breakfast and said goodbye to my dad, and now I'm procrastinating studying. 
It was a fun weekend! I even bought a lot of books online, and some in stores (IMM will be up tomorrow). 


Pedicure!
The Bathroom had a window into the master suite hmm....

  2. It seems you had a lot of fun! It has been a while since I've got the opportunity of traveling but for work and is not as fun as a vacation. Glad you had fun. I saw that you finish reading Kiss of Midnight? Looking forward for your review I love The Midnight Breed Series...
