what i did > Tim Burton Exhibit

On Saturday Ivan and I went with a few friends to the Tim Burton exhibit in Toronto. It was really cool to see all of his sketches and props from different movies. Tim Burton is amazing. This is the only photo I was able to take (outside the exhibit - no photos allowed inside).

After the exhibit we wandered around Toronto looking for shoes and wedding related items. We didn't get anything, haha.

We ended up at BierMarkt so that Ivan could see the huge selection of yummy beers that they have. I was there last summer without him and I knew he would love to check it out.
Ivan + BierMarkt = All Business (as you can see)

After BierMarkt we went to Fresh for dinner (my favourite place to eat in Toronto). So yummy!! What did you get up to over the weekend?

  2. Did you know Biermarkt is Dutch for beer market? okay, maybe that's a bit obvious.. anyway, it's Dutch (= my mother tongue:). Do they have Belgian beers as well? If you ever get the chance you should really try a triple karmeliet, it tastes SO good!

    Man, Ivan looks like a Beatle in that pic... I'm not sure which one, haha. And I mean that as a sincere compliment. :)

  21. ahh, I went to it when it was in oz last year, and it was amazing, I tried so hard to be sneaky and take pics, but there were so many security people hovering, I just wanted one sneaky photo of the edward scissorhands outfit, ohhh boy that thing was cool!! did they have the outfits from alice in wonderland there?? 'Alice's' dress was so beautiful, I never realized watching the movie it had those embroided animals at the bottom, they were so sweet....ahh, what was your fave part?? <3
