Box Office Bahli

Last Friday night, the boy and I went out for a much-needed date night.  I have been running myself to the ground recently with volunteering, working and extracurricular activities and as a result the boy and I have been like passing ghost ships in the night.  We needed some one-on-one time to re-connect and relax.  We went out for dinner at Shafali Indian Restaurant in the Market where I had one of the best vegetarian dishes I have ever tasted- not too spicy but very flavourful.  We then went to see the Christmas comedic play Inspecting Carol at Ottawa Little Theatre.  I don't think we stopped laughing once and for $20 a pop, I would highly recommend it to get into the festive spirit! Date night was a success and the best part of the evening was that I found an opportunity to don my white faux fur jacket thrifted from Salvation Army for only $6! P.S. The photographer/my boy came up with the title of this post (Bahli is a city in Indian so he thought it was fitting for our Indian food and theatrical experience!)

Mmmm buttery naan bread and veggie delights!

Only downside to my 3/4 length jacket- it was freezing out as my Rudolph the Red Nose reindeer depicts!

  1. Love the flower in your hair & the fur jacket. I need to go thrift shopping with you, you're always have great finds. It looks like you & your boy had a lovely evening out. I'm excited for Thursday.

  2. Gorgeous Gorgeous....Love ur coat.... and the headband is adorable

  3. Aren't you adorable in that cute jacket! And it's important to keep romance alive: date-nights are essential in the midst of busy lives.

    Tasty, veggie Indian food is the best!

  4. You look gorgeous in that jacket:)

    And the food looks so delish...
    Nice to know you had fun.

  5. nice jacket and oh wow you wore that out at night?! you must have been freezing!!

  6. Thanks everyone I'm not used to wearing fur (it can be a bit over the top) so I'm glad it was a hit :) Pop Champagne- my arms were numb, not my smartest decision in this temperature!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
