Kate, I'm going to kick this off with talk of food.  On Thursday we went to Chantecler and it was great. I've been meaning/wanting to go there for a long time but sometimes I'm guilty of frequenting the same places over and over again and rarely adding in a new place.  It's not because I don't love trying something new.  It's because I have a problem with cravings!  When I crave something, I must have it and you can only crave something you've already had.  Hence my whole problem with constantly going to the same places.  It generally goes like this - Grand Electric, Harbord Room, Harbord Room, Harbord Room, Queen Margherita, Sushi, Burgers Priest, Grand Electric and Hopgoods Foodliner.  While typing this I realized that I have a serious craving for the Donairs at Hopgoods...anyone want to go!?

But back to Chantecler.  I know it's been there for a while but if you have not been, go!  I'm planning on doing the tasting menu in May or June and can't wait.  Here's a picture of the popcorn shrimp.  Not going to lie, I felt like a bit of a dolt taking pictures of food at a restaurant but it's what I do in the name of this blog :)

Next up, overalls!  Ok, so they're back in and there are some super cute/chic ways to wear them but the truth of the matter is that my life does not really lend it's self to dressing up very often, so I think I'm going to kick it old school and just go for a baggy jean pair.  I may be too old for these but I think I'm going to go for it regardless.  Plus they are only $27.59 at American Eagle.

When I see them styled like this courtesy of whowhatwear it makes the decision easy.

This just makes me yearn for summer and light flowing dresses and flip flops.  Come on already!
