What Took So Long?

The above question is pretty much how I feel about a lot of things lately. Patience...I have it...but I don't. Anyhoots, this is my 100th post and I can't believe it took me only 7 months to get here! GAH! Obviously, I need to get back on track and up my *postage*.

This past weekend, S and I put on our tourist hats and went for a drive...

my tourist hat looks more like a beanie but whatevs...
we drove 1 1/2hrs. to get some of this...
at the Brazillian Steakhouse, Copa Cabana
photo via Copa Cabana because truth is, when the steak was in front of me, I couldn't care less where the camera was.
I heart meat.

We also drove to see this...
Frozen Water? Why yes. 
I heart ice.

Better known as this...

I love this photo taken by S. The hotel had a package that included tickets for the Sky Wheel. Half Gondola/Half Ferris Wheel with an RPM a hamster could outdo, perfect for taking in the sights. From a distance cause we had no desire to actually walk by the frozen falls. It's breathtaking but we've seen it a thousand at least 10 times.

baby it's cold outside...

After a good 10 minutes outdoors, we hit the arcades to 
"Feed Big Bertha" and beat the high score of "Belly Bomber" 
That's S' ear and plaid shirt.
I heart that the games we played were food/stomach based. Seemed to be the theme of the weekend. We ended it off at the Melting Pot, for some amazing fondue.
I heart big melted pots o' chocolate.

Can't wait to see what you've been up to! Happy mid week, loves!

  1. Omg, Big Bertha. My bro and I used to go crazy with this game...haha. Love it! XD Amazing Niagra pic.

  2. hahahaha seriously every time i think i am going to take a picture of my food or something like it... it never happens. i don't care enough to wait and take pictures, i just want my food.

  3. Congrats on 100!

    I was in Niagara 2 years ago, and we did walk around the frozen falls. So pretty! What a nice lil getaway for you!

  4. Congrats on your 100 post!!!
    You look so cute in those pictures!!!

  5. Congrats on making it to a 100 (posts... not years of course ;-) Looks like you had a great time... the frozen Falls look great, but I agree it's not something you'd need to see again (I've been there twice and I think I would have gone straight to the Fondue... ;-) Oh yeah, the meat sounds fantastic. See, this is why I could never have a food blog, because as much as I love the stuff, there's no way I could document and take pics before actually eating....

  6. Uh ela...are you sure you ate this weekend? Look how friggen skinny you are!! And cute too duh. Love your whole snow bunny look. But wait...S' ear??? Yes! I finally get to see a snippet of him. Hahaha!

  7. I heart fondue and the Melting Pot big time.

    I also heart meat.

    Oh yeah and I heart you too!

  8. i haven't been to niagra falls in the longest! loved it pretty...especially when not frozen!

    also love meat (it's all the husband's fault) and the melting pot. yum!

  9. You just get cuter and cuter every day! Is that possible?

  10. Congrats on making it to your 100th post, Ela!

    I heart meat and yeah, chocolates too. :) I'd love to see the Niagara even if I walk and skate on ice. lol! :)

    Lovely coat, sweetie!

  11. I love Niagra Falls! It's one of my favorite places to visit. So magical and beautiful. I have never seen it in the winter though. Is it really frozen now?!

    And all that food looks yummy. Mmmm...just thinking of The Melting Pot makes my stomach growl. Hehe.

    So glad to see you both had a fun time! I need a mini vacay one of these days too!

    Congrats on your 100th post!!

  12. Looks like you had a great time!!!!! Congrats on 100 posts!!!

  16. S makes another vague appearance! :)

    Thanks for your lovely, warm comments on thereafterish. Lova you, girl.

    I love that you take time to date each other. It's important to keep those flames alive, non?

    I've never been to Niagara. I may, someday. Your coat is fantastic!

    I must say, that is a lovely piece of meat, if I do say so, and being a vegetarian, that means a lot. LOL.

  34. Dearest Ela,
    well - this post title could also be meant to me, don't you think? ;)
    Sorry for being off for such along time and for being a bad blogger girl/friend. I didn't spend too much time with my blog and also not in visiting my prefered blogs. Just feeling like becoming awake again after a long winter sleep....

    So - here I am back (once) again!

    CONGRATS to your 100th post, honey!!
    Up for the next 500!

    How are you, how have you been? :-D

    Had to smile soooo much about your "tourist hat" :-D Such a cute beanie. I never knew the expression of a "tourist hat" XD

    Would love to see Niagara Falls one fine day as well. Should be magic - even with lots of ice!

    Much love to you, dear Ela!!

  35. Your tourist beanie is the cutest thing ever... and you in the fury eskimo hood... EVEN cuter than the cutest thing in the world, which was the beanie... which means if it's cuter than the cutest thing ever, it's pretty darn cute. AND THAT was quite the convulated way to say YOU ARE AMAZINGLY CUTE!
    Hee hee... miss you lots!! I left you a blog award today on my blog... because, well, I won't repeat my crazy adoartion for me. Just reread that bit about the cutest thing ever, and cuter than the cutest thing... blah blah blah. You know :)
