Rain Rain, Go Away

Just for Fun, Lifestyle/Personal

The bf planned a few days in Niagara this weekend to celebrate my birthday early.

We started the drive off with some good tunes. It’s hard to cruise in your CRUZE when you need to wait 30 minutes for a train to end – thank goodness it was beautiful out. When we got to Niagara, we almost got stuck in an elevator, and upon trying to enter Fallsview Casino to make a dinner reservation at Ponte Vecchio – we realized that the bf’s ID expired (what a nut he is! 😉 ). To top it off, we checked the weather forecast and saw nothing but rain and cold, rain and cold – YAY!

See, so ugly out there ...

Instead of After freaking out and feeling frustrated about our weekend, we decided to make the best of it. So, we woke up Saturday morning with a positive attitude, got dressed, and trekked outside in the wind and rain – of course we had to stop at the souvenir shop to buy an umbrella and a heavy sweater for me. After that we walked over to the arcade and spent about three hours acting like fifteen-year-olds and playing skee ball. It was probably the best three hours of the trip, not just because I completely kicked the bf’s ass in skee ball, but because we got to feel like little kids again.

We ended up giving our tickets (all 700 of them) to a family with two young boys - the look on their faces was priceless. Hi family, hope you got some great prizes!! 🙂

We ended our Saturday hanging out with a few friends that came up for the night. I couldn’t have asked for a better very-early-brithday celebration. Thanks bf and friends!

Life NEVER goes as planned and if you’re like me, you still get frustrated when it doesn’t.

BUT as long as you’re with great people nothing else should matter,

not the weather, not an expired ID, and certainly not crappy food at a restaurant.

Love Always
