Day 1: 21st
So I went to Edmonton with my family, and wow it started out as a complete gong show!
We had booked a hotel on Travelocity which was awesome because we got a room for way cheaper! But we got to the hotel and it was the worst Best Western we had ever been to.
Firstly, the ad on the website said it had a hot tub, and a tennis court, and just all these great things and oh what do you know, it doesn't!
Secondly, the hotel room was gross. There was "something" white on the bed skirt.., the hotel book that comes in the room was all ripped up and drawn on, the fridge when turned on had a very disgusting smell, ontop of the already bad smell to the room. It was absolutely horrible!
SO! We went to the front desk and we didn't make a big deal about how gross the hotel room was, but we said we didn't want to stay there because there was no hot tub which is one of the main things we wanted and they were fine with that, but they said we had to call Travelocity and cancel the reservation because that's who we had gone through.
Well! Travelocity was VERY hard to deal with. First the guy said "oh well it'll take 7-10 business days to refund your money to your credit card." Well that wasn't going to roll with us because then we would have had to stay in our Jeep considering we were six hours away from home! The hotel manager at the Best Western was super helpful though and he managed to get Travelocity to just get us another hotel room at a different hotel so we weren't stranded and we ended up staying at the Travel Lodge which wasn't too bad, definitely better and we had dinner at Smitty's because it was connected to the hotel, and I had delirious fish and chips!
Day 2: 22nd
Outfit: Mermaid Leggings (Black Milk), Black Sparkly Toms (TOMS), Pentagram Crewneck (Shop W.A.S.)
We woke up and went to breakfast at Smitty's which was super awesome and I had a delicious Belgian Waffle with strawberries and whipped cream, my favourite! And then we went to the West Edmonton Mall! It was my second time being there, because if you read my blog from earlier in the week I was there for a few hours before! We hung out there all day and went shopping and it was super fun! I purchased a pair of black and white high waisted shorts from Urban Behaviour for $20 and a super cute black and white striped dress from Forever 21 for $20 and as well as a cute pair of black wedges at H&M for $40! The shoes made my feet hurt because I wore them without socks and my feet at a size 5 but I bought the size 5.5 because that was the smallest they had and I can never find size 5 so I settle for either size 5.5 or 6! We ended up having supper at Tony Roma's on Bourbon Street in the mall and it was pretty disappointing because I ordered the same dish I had where I live and it was COMPLETELY different, I was really confused and it sucked a lot! And then we all went to the Wild West shooting range, and my sister and step dad shot a couple guns and it was cool to watch! Most exciting part though was when we were walking out a girl said "Nice Blackmilk leggings" and I probably died right there, I was so happy someone noticed ahah!
Day 3: 23rd
Outfit: Black suspender leggings (Black Milk), Striped High Waisted Shorts (Urban Behaviour), Dead and Divine Crewneck, Black Wedges (H&M).
I was constantly being stared at and looked at by so many people it was ridiculous, suspender leggings REALLY turn heads. Damn Edmonton, I thought you could handle a little thigh!
We woke up, went and had breakfast at Smitty's yet again and I had the exact same thing because it was so good the day before! I was really impressed with Smitty's! We then went to pick up my.. well.. lets call him my cousin so it's easier! We picked him up in Leduc and then we went to the mall again and my sister and step dad and him went to the water park and my mom and I met with my old friend back when I lived on Vancouver Island and walked around and shopped with her for a bit and that was good because other than earlier that week I hadn't seen her in probably four years! After awhile she went home and my mom and I just walked around and went to the pet store and then they were done at the water park so we went to Galaxy Land! We got there only an hour and a half before closing so we went on a few rides and I went on a roller coaster except I closed my eyes the whole time because I hate heights! After that we ate at Mr. Mike's Steakhouse and it was AMAZINGLY good, ugh I loved their steak and their mini cheesecake bites.. mmmm. I will definitely be going back there!
Day 4: 24th
Well this day doesn't matter much, we woke up and went to Tim Hortons, almost couldn't find our way out of Edmonton because our GPS was being weird and taking us back the way we JUST came, yeah it was stupid. And we finally got out, and drove home, and my boyfriend was waiting for us at the house holding my cat, because he looked after him the whole time we were gone and that was so sweet of him! And then I just chilled the rest of the day, and that is why this blog came the next day!
HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GOOD FAMILY WEEK!
Also here is a picture of the sparkle and fade knit circle dress from earlier in the week!
