I need a break! It just took me four hours to decorate the tree and you know what a mess that makes - the afternoon will be gone before I know it and it'll be time to get ready to head out for Gary's Christmas party. Where did the week go? This time last week we were in Toronto - seeing the sights of the city - and visiting with Darcy. Saturday afternoon we took in the James Bond exhibit, at the TIFF Bell Lightbox - if you have a chance to get to Toronto and are interested in James Bond, it's well worth the admission. My favorite displays were the costumes - some of those Bond Girls were tiny, some were not!!
On the way in - no pics allowed inside.

Darcy had been preparing us for weeks - he was taking us out on Saturday night, but it was a big surprise, all we knew is that we had to dress up. So, we set off for downtown, still not knowing where we were going - we pulled in, the valet rushes over to the car, I was in the back seat - Darcy's car is low and the leather seats are very slippery, the car was parked on a slope, my feet got hooked up in the seatbelt, but I got out and that's when I saw where we were -
We're going to dine in Trump luxury!
We were swept into the building so quickly, these were taken on the way out. The service was unbelievable - people greeting you at every corner - up we went to the 31st floor - to the restaurant
Darcy had lobster, Gary had rib eye and I had duck a la orange - oh, my..... that's all I can say....
We also had something from the chocolate cart - made by the chocolatier in the Hotel - delectable. Of course, we had to have dessert too, unfortunately, no good pictures of that, but believe me, it was good!
What a special night - we've talked about it every day since, we will never forget it!! There was no occasion, Darcy just wanted to do something special for us and he did - it couldn't have been any more perfect - thank you, Darcy!!!
The Trump Tree - you'd think you were in a forest in the lobby - it doesn't matter how many pine or balsam candles you buy, nothing is ever going to smell like that - I've tried those pine sticks they sell at Michael's too - those are a complete waste of money. This tree was just beautiful!
Christmas in Toronto
More Toronto Christmas
It was just the best weekend!!!
