I'm in love.

...with sunshine.

Saturday I spent with a dear friend who I will stand beside as she marries her best friend in July, along with two of her other good friends who will wear the same dress as me. And we had fun.

There is something about a day full of sunshine, cruiser bikes, Stanley Park, and amazing food, that makes a girl's heart just full.

So, here's the deal, the best girls' day in Vancouver when the sun is shining is completed by doing the following (and can be modified to be a date day...just sayin'):

Step 1:
Rent 1 speed cruisers from Spokes and try your best not to run into the girl in front of you (Sorry Steph!) I have to admit, I kept staring off at either the mountains or the ocean, and as a result kept getting too close to the person in front of me, or way too far behind.

This also made me very excited to get a bike rack and take my own bike on adventures this summer. Pictures to follow.

Step 2:
Coffee at JJ Bean. Enough said.

Step 3: 
Manicures/Pedicures at Harmonie Day Spa on Robson St. These girls were so sweet, and service was really good - they honestly have the best green tea I've ever drank in my life.

Step 4:
Dinner at East is East on W. Broadway. OH MY WORD. Okay, you know things will be good when you're handed the best chai tea in the world upon entering. Even if you live 1000 miles away, you should probably make the trip to Vancouver to eat this food. Yes, it is honestly THAT good.

Step 5: 
Return to a living room to digest, laugh and watch a movie that makes you laugh a good ol' gut laugh

And there you have it.

The best use of a sunny Saturday in Vancouver.
