Some Trips, Some Visits, And A BIG Announcement!

Lots of things have been going on in the Chocolate Milk household (I just put that together!)! 

To begin with, we are going on a trip to the East Coast of Canada. Mr. Milk has a work thing and I am tagging along since I've never been. We leave tomorrow evening and our first stop is Toronto. We spend the weekend there, then take the train to Ottawa, where Mr. Milk will have his meeting and I will be a tourist. Hopefully I'll have some time to blog then and post some pics. After 3 days, we get back on the train and head to Montreal for 4 days. This is the part I am most excited about, as I've heard great things about it! If any of you have any advice, tips, must-sees, please let us know! 


So needless to say I will be a little absent next week, but will be popping in whenever possible.

The following week, Mr. Milk will be in Miami for a bachelor party. Hopefully I can get him to take lots of pics so we can see what goes on during these affairs! A day before he returns, his best man will be coming to visit us from Cyprus for a couple of weeks! We are very excited about this. We are also planning a road trip to Portland for some tax-free shopping while he is here, and my hope is to return with my wedding band! :)

My chocoholic friend and her husband are looking into coming up to Vancouver at the beginning of May to spend Mr. Milk's birthday with us! We are super excited about this visit too because we have tried to plan it since September!!! So after 2 failed attempts we are hoping that the third time will be the lucky one. Mr. Milk and I have it written down in our calendar that they will be here so there. 

As for the BIG announcement... you'll have to wait a little more for that :) 

Sorry! But have to keep the suspense going a little longer!

Oh you're going to have so much fun in Toronto. Make sure to go downtown Toronto all the restaurants along Queen's Quay are great. At least they were when I was there 6 years ago. You can also take the little boat trip to Toronto Island. Beautiful but may be a little cold now. As for Montreal, the best time is during the Jazz Festival in the summer, but i'm sure you'll have a great time with your boo.

One of my new fave restos in Toronto is Foxley. So good. There are also a ton of great bars on the same street, Ossington. I have a million recommendations so feel free to ping me!

As for Montreal, check out the lobby bars at the W hotel and the Saint Paul. Have dinner at L'Express - so good. I have yet to go but everyone loves Au Pied de Couchon. For the best smoked meat, you must go to Schwartz's deli. Finally, have a romantic stroll in Place de Jacques Cartier.

Have a great time.
