A visit to Splendid Essence

My friend and I went to lunch at Splendid Essence yesterday, and as always, it was an awesome time. This local restaurant is all vegetarian, and I love it! They have a HUGE menu w a large variety of things.. each time I go I like to try something different, but I definitely have my favorites. My friend is vegetarian, so she loves it there because she can eat everything on the menu. I tried one of the drinks this time.. I had iced coconut milk tea.. it was maybe my fave part of my meal! I also tried the house dry tofu, which was amazing and had a great texture. It is shredded and was almost like noodles. I had my leftovers today heated up on rice, and they were almost better than when I first had it fresh! I had the deep fry mantou as well, which was like a crispy fried bread and sweet dip. My fave of the meal was the sushi I think. I am a huge fan of "veggie" ham... yum!

This place is so, so cute! Very traditional tea house vibe, with cool retro chairs and some really need possibly hand beaded chandeliers. The outside is a fresh light colored house, and you can see the sparkly lights through the windows. They also have some nice plants outside and a little deck. The upstairs houses a buddhist shrine. I noticed while there that they even had a kids book called "v for vegan" which I thought was adorable! If you are from PEI or ever visiting you definitely need to check this place out. The prices are reasonable and the service excellent. If you're curious about their hours or full menu, check out their website here: (be warned, the menu has a lot of great photos and will likely make you hungry!)

Trip to Moncton w the Kiddos and my Mom!

This past weekend, Jude, Jett, and I met my mom in Moncton for a quickie visit. My mom lives in Alberta and she was only able to get a few days off from work to visit, so we decided to do something fun! We went across and off the island to Moncton, in New Brunswick. This is our nearest larger city, with a mall and other bigger attractions like a Zoo. The boys were spoiled, as Grandmothers tend to do.. and so was I ;) We all had a great time. Here are some photos from our little weekend adventure.


Jett loves making forts, he was stealing everyon'es bed pillows lol ;D

We don't have taco bell on the island! And hotel pools are always fun

One of our hotels had bath and body works soaps! that was awesome! And we all loved stretching out on the comfy beds.

The boys loved the pancake making machine at the hotel, and both jude and I were fascinated by the hissing cockroach display at the zoo.

The zoo was all decorated up for Halloween which was fun! Lol the kids made my poor mom get in the lowest face hole hahaha...


Pancake Machine madness!

Jett was laying on my sore back lol

So tuckered out he passed out mid sentence w glasses on lol

Stylin dudes got some new kicks and clothes at the mall


And each boy posed w the big trolls poster when we went to the movies


We don't have Bath and Body works on the island so I always stock up while over.. this candle was my FAVE!

This hissing cockroach was the biggest.. we watched it forever lol.. this display was horrifying but we couldn 't stop!

Jude with his Subway at the mall and my bags!!!!



We also went and checked out this movie in the theatre in 3-d! I highly reccomend the experience of seeing it on the big screen.. it was amazing! I have heard the books of this series are great too so I definitely want to check them out. The movie was so magical. I mean, Tim Burton is always great... AND there was a Florence and the Machine song done for the movie.
