‘Twas the night.
I just realized I haven’t introduced you to my newest toy. I know I showed you what it can do, but not showed you it.
It needs a name – I haven’t even decided on if it’s a girl or a boy yet. I’m leaning towards Nick. Ideas?
Whoever it is, I took them out on the town last night for ‘Twas the Night – a fundraiser for United Way at the mall. Shopping and charity. Love.
They opened the mall (that usually closes at 6) from 6:30-10 p.m. for eager holiday shoppers, and those who just wanted to see and be seen. A great place to people watch.
I ignored the stand-and-repeat, didn’t care too much for Lainey Gossip, but the tree sure looked gorgeous.
The other fun thing about the event, was the organizers realized a 6:30 p.m. event doesn’t leave time for normal people to grab dinner. To remedy that, little tables were set up across the mall with different tasting plates and drinks – alcohol stayed in Holts, who doesn’t want single malt scotch?
Or Yorkshire pudding stuffed with mashed potatoes, turkey and gray.
Mom, can we have these for Christmas dinner?
We stopped mid-shop for a performance from Chantal Kreviazuk!
I have most of my shopping finished, so I didn’t go mall-crazy. Bought a toque for myself from The Gap for 70% off, how savvy of me!
The best part of it all?
