Cabanarama Sticky Notes ( I have a post-it obsession)
Cabana Stripe Tote
On a happy note: I did end up purchasing the pink flamingo and palm needlepoint shoes, and an Apple Store is opening in Ottawa (first ever!) this weekend. So it appears I will soon be purchasing my laptop, as well.

- So my current Dell laptop has been less-than friendly lately. It's time it be replaced by a MacbookPro. I've had a Mac before, but switched to a PC for university, assuming it would be easiest. Of course we all know what happens when we assume.... Needless to say, I am ready to become a loyal Mac user once again.
- I am an absolute headband addict. I swear, there is a paranormal force that pulls me towards them. While I already have a pretty hefty collection, there have been a couple that I've had my eye on for quite a while.
- I stumbled upon these needlepoint shoes from By Paige, and I think they are absolutely darling.
- It's been a while since I bought a new watch. I have loved this Lacoste one from the moment I saw it, but considering the absolutely awful luck I seem to have with my watches, I'm thinking I may have to go the thrifty route and buy a cute pink Anne Klein watch instead.

With a final trip to a local coffee shop for non-fat vanilla lattes, it turned out to be a truly splendid day. In two weeks one of my friend's from FL will be visiting, so I will have to plan another tourist-friendly visit of Ottawa. I only hope the weather improves from its current state (rain rain go away!).

It has been an incredible last couple of days. My bff DW, who I have not seen in months, came in to Ottawa to visit me for the weekend. Wednesday we met up with others from our school for the official Canada Day celebration. It was the best Canada Day I have ever had. We began with a free Chamber Orchestra concert at the National Arts Centre, continued with a walk through Parliament Hill, had a BBQ back at my house, and finished the day off with a free celebratory concert of Canadian musicians at the Hill with featured guest Sarah McLachlan and fireworks.
And to the vast majority of bloggers out there who come from the United States, Happy Independence Day!!! I hope you all had a lovely day, even if the celebratory colors were red, white and blue, not green and pink. I suppose we all have to sacrifice our favored colour scheme every once and a while.
