I just got back from a rather productive lunch break–have you noticed how sunny and gorgeous it is outside?
So I have a confession. One of my stops was to my weekly Weight Watchers meeting on Smith Street. Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve still got a few Holiday pounds to shed and the looming bathing suit season is ahead of me. That and I went to the Joan Rivers fundraiser dinner at the Hotel Fort Garry last week where I ate too much because the food was so good. (PS-Joan Rivers was hilarious no matter what Lindor Reynolds says.)
There aren’t very many Weight Watchers in the city and their head office is downtown (yay for us). The best part is the meetings are Tuesday and Thursday at noon, so it’s perfect to whip over there on your lunch hour. I even walk there, so I get in my exercise that way.
After my meeting I was walking down Graham and stopped in at Moi Boutique. They’ve had this fierce (I hate that word) black flower dress in the window for the last few weeks that I have been coveting. It turns out they are having a ridiculous sale and all their dresses are 25%-40% off. Can we say Christmas in March?
Anyway, sadly the dress didn’t fit. (And no, it has nothing to do with the aforementioned Weight Watchers meeting. It was too BIG. I swear.) However, I did pick up a very cute grey wrap top for 40%, plus another 15% off. The man that owns the store is very friendly, and I have it on good authority that if you shop there regularly, he gives you special discounts. I don’t know how much I need to spend to get into this exclusive club, but I’ve now made it my life’s mission.
Then I decided I needed an orange and I headed to the grocery store at the Bay to pick some up. It’s pretty empty down there right now, but that’s because there’s a Zellers moving in! Pretty exciting. No word on if they’re keeping the grocery store, but fingers crossed because I know a lot of people love it. Anyway in the meantime, they’ve got oranges and a lady with a bun and pinstriped vest who’ll do your taxes down there. Neat.
