Wild Wednesday #3 featuring OLOA part 1!

Today I was determined to get my 10,000 steps in. So I went for a long walk with my mom. We ended up going to this small trail in Malton and it brought back so many memories.

Where this trail now stands, it used to be a school called Our Lady of the Airways. It was my very first school from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 5. I most likely would’ve graduated from there if it wasn’t for the school shutting down.

The parking lot was fairly big, and there were two different entrances to get into the building from the front. One door was closer to the Kindergarten classes and the other door was the entrance near the office.

There was a hill on the side of the school with maybe three or four big tires. For someone so little, the hill of course seemed so big in comparison to an adult. Hop scotch painted on the pavement and another two doors on the side of the building, one to let you into the Kindergarten class and another into the gym.

When you go around to the back of the building there was a nice field with soccer nets. Other game like activities painted on the pavement, but that part of the memory seems pretty foggy. There was another door to get into the building, I remember there being steps to get to the back stage of the gym when you entered those doors.

A little further down the property there was a basketball court and more field with a park in the middle and a baseball diamond much further down the field. On the building itself closest to the park was another entrance into the building for the older grades.

When you walk down the rest of the pavement there are more doors, those are all from classrooms, there were actually a decent amount of classes that had a separate door. On that same side was a little path with a huge tire. If you keep walking down the pavement you will find yourself back to the front of the school.

I really wanted to share some photos of what the school used to be like, but unfortunately couldn’t find any… almost like the school never existed.

Stay tuned to next Wednesday to hear about my memories of Our Lady of the Airways.


Wild Wednesday #1

Hello Everyone! Happy Wednesday, we’re almost at the end of the week, not sure about you, but I am always looking forward to Friday after 5pm because that means my work week is off of mind.

Today I wanted to share with you what I did last Saturday, my Fiancé and I did a date night and we got to try some new things.

The afternoon started with some snacks…or A LOT of snacks and a movie. We watched John Tucker Must Die, honestly one of my favourite movies.

What is your favourite movie snack? For me.. popcorn, peanut M&Ms and Twizzlers are a must have.

Later on that evening the actual date night got started. We ended up at Shake It & Co… honestly been wanting to go there since…. it was at least early this year when I discovered this place even existed, very fancy place for a small town.

Such a cute little space in the inside too! Honestly I have no idea what I expected the inside to look like. But it looks like a business I would love to one day own. But instead of milk shakes…tea!

It’s sooooo pink and cute! Wouldn’t you agree? Looks like something you would see downtown Toronto. Not in a small town like Malton.

Originally my safe zone for Milkshakes or even anything ice cream related would be anything oreo related. For the Fiance, he would normally pick Reeses.
What is your to go to when you go for shakes? If you had this place near you, what would you have wanted to try?
We obviously decided to go a little more adventurous instead of safe.
I picked Coffee O’clock…mmmm….NUTELLA! He picked Unbruleevable mmmmm cream brulee!
Both tasted amazing… would come back again another day to try some other flavours.
Highly recommend for a cute date night… or even for a girls day.

We ended up driving to Caledon to go to the Badlands, one of the places on my bucket list. Unfortunately we did not know how developed it got and it was only open to the public during certain hours of the day. BUT that just means it is an adventure for another day and if you want to see photos from there, that means you need to follow my Wild Wednesday posts.

Since the Badlands was a no go, I suggested going to a Food Truck Festival that was happening at Square One for the Night Market Toronto event. Literally only found out about this because one of my friends posted it on her Facebook Story, so glad I found out about it.

Night Market Toronto!
The Coffee Break truck had some pretty awesome options, unfortunately because it was so late at night by time we got there, there was a lot of stuff that ended up being sold out. I had my heart set on the Strawberry Sunset steeped iced tea, but that was one of the items that got sold out.
The sky is so pretty, couldn’t help but get a photo of it.
There was maybe 5-6 other food related food trucks, some had long lines, some just didn’t really grab our interest. This truck however, had lots of good options. One item I was eyeing in particular was the Lobster Poutine.
So I ended up with the Chai Steeped Iced Tea… which still tasted good. It was my first time having Chai tea iced.
Very expensive for the Lobster Poutine, but it was sooooooooo delicious!!!!

The day honestly turned out amazing and we really enjoyed ourselves. Cannot wait for our next adventure. Honestly between being so busy with work and everything being locked down due to COVID it has been long over due to do something outside of my typical routine.

Stay tuned for next Wednesday to see what next random thing I decide to share with you all!
