9 am :: After exercising and breakfast I painted my nails to get the day started.
10 am :: Sleepy Farva and some pretty yarn that is slowly turning into a granny square blanket.
11 am :: Ivan playing guitar and Anakin doing some light tail cleaning.
12 pm :: On the road to Toronto we treated ourselves to coffee/hot chocolate.
1 pm :: Alex's dog Arthur is so adorable!
2 pm :: After waiting in a line that ended up growing super gigantic we got to sample some vegan cupcakes/baked goods.
3 pm :: After the sampling we got to rate how yummy we thought the goodies were.
4 pm :: After overloading on sugar we decided to eat some real food and grabbed dinner at Hogtown Vegan. So delicious.
5 pm :: Walking back to Alex's place.
6 pm :: A slightly terrifying, slightly hilarious Barbie display inside a window.
We had a really great day but now we are totally on a sugar detox! It was so yummy but I think we really over did it yesterday. However, I may make an exception for my favourite thing from the bake off...The Lumberjack donut from Bunners.
Today we are doing a few things around the house and maybe finally working on our wedding thank you cards. Have a great Sunday!
i love your colorful assortment of nailpolish! what a great way to start your morning ;)ReplyDelete
and vegan cupcakes sound amazing! especially getting to sample & rate them.
aaaand lastly....that barbie display. yikes!!! definitely hilarious, but super creepy haha
That mac and "cheese" from Hogtown Vegan looks delicious!! Do you know if it was a cashew concoction, or something else? I find that "cheese" sauce is the hardest vegan-thing to make at home. Mine always too thick or too nutty or too salty... ick.ReplyDelete
I'm actually not sure at all what the cheese sauce was. I know you can make a yummy one out of nutritional yeast. This could have been that.Delete
The colorful nailpolishes are really awesome! Haha I love that your cats name is Anakin :) And vegan cupcakes sound delicious!!ReplyDelete
I love the idea of a photo from every hour of the day. It's a great way to document a day full of adventure--especially while I'm abroad. I'm definitely going to try this soon.ReplyDelete
I love the idea of photography every hour of an adventure. I'm going to have to do that sometime. Your photos are always so crisp and clear, I love 'em!ReplyDelete
ps- those dolls are totally creeping me out!
sounds - and looks - delish! You always make me miss stomping around Toronto! My slide-show sunday post also seems to have our cats excelling at laziness... sigh (jealous!). Glad you and Ivan get to chill today - you've been one busy blogger/traveller lately! muah muah!ReplyDelete

Fun! Everytime you post pictures of you visiting toronto I freak out a bit. Im always like 'oh i've been there', 'I walk that way all the time.'ReplyDelete
The dog is sooo cute!
I am in the midst of doing my first photo an hour today. I'm just at home, but we have a superbowl party happening later.ReplyDelete
Which cupcakery did you go to in Toronto? I'd love to try it out - maybe that'll be a Valentine's day date :)
And yes, you should wear all red. I would wear all pink, but come to think of it, I'm not sure I own any...
It was actually a competition held at a hall of some sort. There were bakeries from Toronto and surrounding areas. My favourite thing came from Bunners though. I have never been to that bakery but I need to try it now!Delete
Sounds like a crazy fun day. I can't even imagine eating all those cupcakes! Your lunch looks awesome, southern style. Thanks for sharing, I love these photo an hour posts.ReplyDelete
Its is so nice to read you enjoyed your day. The cupcakes look yummy. And what was that barbie thing?ReplyDelete
It was a project where they collected discarded Barbies and gave them new life by making a display in this window. There was a kind of Barbie Christmas tree and also Barbies in suggestive positions in martini glasses!Delete
what a super fun post - an hour a day, i'll have to remember that for the next time k and i go on an adventure. but i have to say. that barbie display definitely creepy.ReplyDelete
The yarn combination looks so nice, frenchies are the bestReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures! I've always wanted to do a picture an hour post, but I'm pretty much terrible at them. I always forget to take pictures! Lol! :DReplyDelete
Anyway, looks like you had a great day. Thanks for sharing! <3
It looks like you had a great time!ReplyDelete
Your photos are always so refreshing because of the use of colour and contrast!
I hope you enjoyed the cupcakes c: xx
Hogtown vegan is soooooo good for vegan junk food/fast food! It's such a great substitute for traditional burgers and chicken fingers. I went there a few months ago and had the non-chicken burger...could not stop thinking about it!!!! your mac n cheese looks amazing!ReplyDelete
That Barbie display might be the scariest thing this side of Halloween. Yikes! Love all the cat goodness, and your delicious looking dinner! And everyone thinks vegans and vegetarians don't eat well... Epic fail.ReplyDelete
Elycia, I just found your blog through Pie N' the Sky (which I also just recently encountered) and the reason I went to your homepage was because of your spelling - "colour"! Hurray! A Canadian! I've found it tough to find Canadian blogs I like (and it's frustrating to read about someone's spring preparations when there's two feet of snow out my door) so you're definitely on my go to list now! I think you're so great and I love your style :)ReplyDelete
So happy you found me! thanks so much for your comment :) You can also check out My Girl Thursday, Miss Teacups, The Life of a Cupcake...I'm sure there are more but I'm blanking! They are all Canadians too!Delete
Oh and 365 Lucky Days, Needle and Nest, A blog about the little things (teachickadees.com)Delete
Cool, thanks! I'll definitely check them out :)Delete
Those are great nail polish colors! Those little cupcakes look great. I should check that place out the next time I'm in Toronto.ReplyDelete
Well that looks that a fun day! Kitties, coffee, and cupcakes! The trifecta of awesomeness! ;-)ReplyDelete
You have an awesome green & blue nail polish collection! xo, rvReplyDelete
It seems darn near impossible to get vegan cupcakes in Hamilton. Unless they are specially ordered ahead of time. Apparently there is a new cupcake place in Dundas that has them though :) I'll have to hit up Hogtown neaxt time I go to TO (which isn't often because I hate driving there).ReplyDelete
Oh there is one in Dundas? That's awesome, I will have to look in to that. Cake and Loaf on Dundurn in Hamilton always has some kind of vegan treat, either cupcakes, brownies or date bars. You can always check in with them on twitter too to see what they have that day!Delete
I have yet to go to Cake and Loaf-but will make a point of visiting there! The one in Dundas is near the old shopper's downtown on King St. I only just noticed it last week.Delete
What an amazing day! Thanks for sharing it with us with these nice photos. I love the dog!ReplyDelete
What a delicious day! Those barbies are crazy...ReplyDelete
I've been trying some vegan stuff next on my list are espresso brownies :P what was your fave cupcake of the day?? cute pic by the way love the colors of the yarn!ReplyDelete
My friends own Cake and Loaf Bakery and they make the yummiest espresso brownies! I love them. Hmmm, my favourite thing of the day was actually not a cupcake, it was a donut. It was a maple donut with fake bacon and something that tasted a bit cheesy and a bit spicy. It was amazing!!Delete
Bahaha that Barbie display is cracking me up.ReplyDelete
That vegan dinner looks amazing! Is that crispy tofu? Toronto is high on my list of cities I want to visit- it looks amazing!ReplyDelete
It is some kind of imitation chicken thing. Not exactly tofu but soy based. Bad explanation! haha! You should totally visit Toronto!Delete
Looks like the perfect weekend day :)ReplyDelete
ooh the vegan cakes look scrummy! i've been veggie for 23 out of 24 years of my life and am in the process of becoming a vegan at the moment :-) xReplyDelete
I can't believe the Barbie's are STILL there! I used to live just off Ossington and moved almost 2 years ago, and that was up then!!!ReplyDelete
