(Winnipeg day #5 recap)
Breakfast was once again a macaroon and coffee.
A fare I could easily adjust to, daily 💁🏻♀️
We parted ways with two of the aunts that morning and our other aunt toured us around until we had to be at the airport later that afternoon.
We went to The Forks and sat down for lunch, beginning with some truffle oil and parmesan fries that came with a basil dip and a garlic aioli dip.
I’d had similar dish while in South Africa and this was the first time I’d seen it listed on a menu anywhere else ☺️
Mom and I shared a peach, orange and chicken stir fry dish and it was alright but we’d had much better throughout the trip 😉👌🏻
We wandered around the stores, and walked over to another building to do the same there.
Tired of shopping but also having too much time to just spend at the airport. Continue reading “Piqued Interests And Peaked People”

(Winnipeg day #4 recap)
The art store we stopped at first, had a multitude of pretty, sparkly papers 😍✨💕
I had no use for them and that was a little sad but I enjoyed the few moments of iridescent splendour, while there 😉
We sat down for lunch at the same restaurant we’d eaten at the first day, Saucers Cafe.
I wasn’t feeling all that wonderful, so a hot bowl of broccoli cheddar soup, sounded just right 🍵
We ate there, so that we’d be ready for the opening of Jenna Rae Cakes come noon, as I wanted to make one last stop while I could 😉👌🏻💕 Continue reading “Rewards And Retail”

(Winnipeg day #3 recap)
My breakfast? A birthday cake flavoured macaroon of course 💁🏻♀️💕🎂
We’d left our place and drove towards Steinbach for a few, further out stops on the ‘to do’ lists of my one aunt.
We had four days and five people’s wishes to fit in, so we tried our best to accommodate 😜😬
Firstly we stopped at Bothwell Cheese to see what sorts of delicious cow by products they’d churned up.
I got a peach flavoured sparkling water (a non cow product, obviously) for the road and a chilli pepper cheese for at home 🙂
Prairie Pickers Cafe was next on the map and we enjoyed looking around at the assortment of antique and second hand trinkets and goodies ☺️ Continue reading “Meandering Our Way Through Manitoba”

(Winnipeg trip day #2 recap)
The place that overwhelms and gives a person far too many ideas to process at one time 😉
That was our main stop of the day, knowing all would take a while to get through the oversized store of mainly undersized home pieces;)
We lunched there too and I couldn’t have been happier with my meatballs, veggies and gravy for FOUR DOLLARS 😳 😆👌🏻
I loved this idea of adding some simple details that majorly class up the look of a white wall. Continue reading “We Came, We Saw, We Left Frozen”
Wednesday Jan 10th
After a late night of packing and cleaning the house (because that’s what you do before traveling) I awoke at 5:30 am and we left for the airport.
Mom and I took the 1.5 hour flight to Winnipeg in order to meet up with her sisters for a girls trip ☺️
Our first stop was one I’d been dreaming of… going to Jenna Rae Cakes.
I’d been following them on Instagram for a couple of years, drooling over the pictures and awaiting the day I’d be able to test the sweet treats and hoping beyond, that they’d be as good as I’d made them up to be in my head 😉
