the questionable brownie?

Unfortunately we had a little setback at the border patrol on the way into Canada. We were one of the lucky cars that got picked to get searched. Yay! :/ They searched the car COMPLETELY! I mean, the door panels, everywhere in the trunk, under the seats-it was very thorough! They especially got curious over the baked goods we had in our car. Jennifer gave us homemade cookies and brownies for the trip. The patrol guy actually opened and sniffed every ziplock and questioned us if the brownie marked 'W' was for weed.We assured him it was for walnuts as he sniffed it! Haha, after the search we got our stamps and continued to Toronto!

Toronto is SUCH an artsy/hip city. Also very international and diverse.

Foreign people make up 50% of the city. And you could definitely tell since there were neighborhoods called like Little Italy, Corso Italia, Greektown, Portugal Village, Koreatown, Little India, Little Jamaica, and my favorite Chinatown. I love shopping/eating in Chinatown.Up until Toronto, NYC's chinatown was my favorite. But not anymore Toronto's chinatown is HUGE! And spans for streets and streets and has tons of shops/bubble tea places and even malls! We spent an entire afternoon there-exploring, having lunch, and shopping.

Most of our time in Toronto was spent walking around exploring and eating yummy food! But we also did some touristy stuff. We took a walking tour and went to the CN Tower-which is a HUGE tower, the second tallest in the world actually. (It'sone of the seven modern wonders of the world, which means I got to see 2 wonders on this trip!) We took the tour, which takes you up the tower, in a glass elevator.
I had a yummy cupcake from Dufflet for my birfday!
I'm not usually afraid of heights, but I was definitely a little uneasy in this swaying, glass elevator, going 1500ft above Toronto! Once we stopped on the first level (1200ft) I was ok. The view from up there was amazing! There was also a glass floor. Yup. A glass floor 1200ft above the ground. Of course I was scared, but I walked on it and after me making fun of him for awhile, the bf did too. It was crazy looking down.

The rest of the weekend was spent exploring the city and then celebrating my birthday with a cupcake, a nice dinner, and some beers! All in all a great little vacation and birthday.
