for the past 5 years, my favourite day of the week has been sunday.  it's turned into mine and adam's day.  we spend it exploring our neighbourhood and the rest of our wonderful city.  vancouver always has something going on, whether it's just a new brunch spot, coffee shop, festival, or place to shop.  and since our day of adventure usually involves a lot of walking, i try to keep my sunday attire rather casual.  at least semi weather appropriate and relatively comfortable footwear.  

next sunday 
is the return of mad men!  i'm super excited, and we'll be going to the mad men season 5 launch party with a bunch of other local bloggers.  join us?  we'll also have to bring a different lens so we can get a proper photo of the two of us that doesn't cut off adam's hair!  hope to see you then!

  2. Cute picture of you two! So funny we are both Alicia's dating an Adam. Me and my Adam caught up on all of the Mad Men seasons before christmas and have been anxiously waiting the return!! I cannot get enough of it!! Where is that mural?? It's awesome! We usually have relaxing Sundays as well, friday nights and saturdays are running around, homework etc etc. Sunday's are the best.

    1. Great to meet you too :) I didn't colour it, it seems to be changing colour on its own? Very strange, but it's like free highlights, so I'm okay with it lol

  28. Just posted on the fbook wall about the Mad Men party, so sad I can't go! It's cause Sundays are usually Matt and I's special days too and he already planned a big day for us, so sad I can't go though it sounds AMAZING. You look beautiful as ever here pally, loving those stripes, and I honestly thought the first pic was a cool design project of yours at first until I realized it was actually a mural! So pretty!

    So so so good seeing so much of you lately, can't wait to hopefully see you more and more over the next few weeks!

    So sad I can't make it to the Mad Men event on Sunday! But my dad's coming here for the weekend so I guess that's a good enough excuse ;-)
