nice and quiet - exactly the way I like it!

Very soon I will be able to scream my life changing news to the world... but for now... a recap of my nice and quiet weekend.

I drove Bidou and his dad to the airport. Bidou is travelling to Peru for work and decided to bring his Dad along for the week. He surprised him last weekend with a plane ticket for his 74th birthday. Needless to say that his Dad was so moved and speechless when he opened up the the gift.

After dropping them off at the airport, I decided to get a pedi. I usually go to a high end spa near my place but decided to drop in to those quick fix mani/pedi places and I was very impressed their service and they charge half half price on what I usually pay. I will definitely be going back there!

A couple of months ago, I heard that a Panera Bread had opened up in Ottawa (and happy to state that they have been slowly popping up a bit all over Ontario). I love their broccoli and cheddar soup so decided to give the Canadian Panera Bread a try. So so good.... and I confirm that it tastes the same as the American one.  :)

Sunday's are made to relax and that is what is exactly what I did!  I sat on my over stuffed couch and read all afternoon with Kloé by my side.

  1. Panera is soooo good! I love it! Thanks for linking up :)

  2. Yay for a Panera visit!!!! I've been craving it so bad lately.

  3. Now you can get pedis twice as much since they are half the cost, right? :)

  4. I haven't had a pedi in way too long. Come to think out it I don't think I have ever had Panera. What a great surprise/gift!
