Surprisingly, being from Canada I've only skated a few times. It's actually pretty fun! Since we've had a pretty mild winter the ice is too thin to skate along the river. But they do have an outdoor skating rink at the Forks with a disco ball and some sweet jams playing. The only recommendation I have is to make sure you have good skates because my rented ones were cramping my feet. I went with a my sister, cousin, and a couple of friends. Afterwards we enjoyed some tim tam slams (an Australian tradition)... if ya'll haven't tried it, you gotsta! and if you're a chocolate lover like myself, it's a definite must! It's so good.

By the by...I'm guest posting at Love Notes by Lauryn today and giving a lil blog intro. Check it out here!

  2. it's been too long since i've ice skated! :( looks soo cooold there, ha. (:

    i've heard much about tim tam slams, but never gotten to try any! i love chocolate, so i'm sure i would love those too.

  3. I'm glad you went and had such a fun time! I love skating!! I hadn't ever really gone, until I picked up a pair from the Salvation Army last year for super cheap. Now I try to go at least once every couple of weeks.

  4. good skates are a must! I like to buy mine (hockey skates) at second hand sports stores cuz guys outgrow their skates so fast you can easily find almost brand new ones for suuuuppper cheap.

    lovely pics :)
