This weekend I had the opportunity to do something I have never had the chance to do before, but have always wanted to do. This weekend, I got to meet one of my spectacular bloggy friends. The beautiful and lovely Ella, formerly of Ella Unread has recently moved to Canada, so we took the opportunity to meet up in the great city of Toronto and head over to the Toronto Bridal Show.
The show itself was a total disappointment. There was not much there, it was loud and crowded, and very few of the companies were giving any sort of samples away. Not that samples make or break a place, but even the Orangeville Bridal show had lots of samples to give away!
Meeting Ella was spectacular. She was just as gorgeous, funny and personable as she had seemed via Skype and through our conversations over the last two years. I was worried at first that our meeting might be a bit awkward and all that, but everything went smoothly. It honestly just felt like catching up with an old friend, which was great. Sadly, she was only here for one night, so we grabbed dinner down on Front St, then headed back to my place and watched Star Trek (the new movie) with Scott. Sunday, we went to church, took her to lunch at our ever-famous diner in town called Angel's, and then took her back to Toronto so she could catch her bus.
We didn't end up taking any photos on Saturday, even though we had meant to, so of course, we had to take a photo before she left to prove that we had met up!
It was sad to see her go, but I am very excited to do it again sometime in the near future.
After we dropped her off, Scott and I decided that since we made the drive, we might as well go into the mall that was there for a bit. That lasted a whole half hour before I couldn't take the crowds anymore. Tried on some super hot fancy dresses before we left, then snapped a shot of me in my outfit for the day, just because I could... and because I've been experimenting with trying to find my own sense of style.
Not bad for a girl who previously had 0 fashion sense and never dressed like a girl right?
