Out with Dad

On my dad's birthday (Wednesday) he was awarded the Queen's medal for service to Canada by his employer.  He needed to bring a date to the awards ceremony and dinner and he picked me :-)

I got dressed up to head out for the evening ...

 
 

I finally broke out my new Louis Vuitton bag that I picked up on 5th Ave. in New York.  I thought the pop of colour would be perfect with my dress and matching nails.

We had dinner at a local restaurant called The Lakeshore.  I ordered the shrimp and ribs with the Caesar salad to start.

 

It was pretty good, but not great.

Last night my siblings and I took my dad out for dinner to celebrate his birthday.  We went to Teppanyaki.

 

I had gyoza to start and then shrimp and steak for my meal.

 
 
 

The sun is shining today and I am looking forward to a fabulous weekend!  

What do you have planned for the weekend?
