Ever heard of the Scion xB? It’s a little cube car that packs some serious attitude. It would have to, because I made it look super lame taking these pictures in public.
I did SO much running around and zipped around all over the city in this thing. It was super easy to park and for the amount of driving I did, I didn’t use much gas at all!
Will travel with dog. Mind the dog hair! He loves car rides. Two paws up for this sweet ride because it meant a trip to Petsmart for some new treats. Dear Petsmart, Y U NO HAVE DOWNTOWN LOCATSSHUNZ?!
I love my city and I don’t really see the need to own a car since its easier to get to my work by TTC and there’s something to be said for never having to be the DD. Then again, Toronto is a great city and sometimes you need a city-friendly car to explore it.
I left my new pal at home on Friday night to go to a Halloween party. I tried to be a sexy army pin-up, but mostly looked like this all night:
Absence made the heart grow fonder and on Saturday I had a four-speed love affair with my cube. Had to be up bright and squirrely for an appointment. Best thing: didn’t have to rely on TTC to get me there on time. I got myself there just fine.
Then it was a trip to Tottenham to see my best friend attempt her first non-family birthday party for her 5-year-old. Ash worked her little tush off to create a magical Halloween-themed birthday party and invited twenty 5-year-olds. Check out this attention to detail. Yeah, that’s imported hay and a homemade cake.
Then it was off to my boyfriend’s parents house for a very belated Thanksgiving dinner. Instead of baking a traditional pumpkin pie for dessert, I tried this recipe for a bi-layered pumpkin pie cheesecake. If getting in to swing of fall means eating way too many pumpkin-flavoured pastries then I am loving it!
Sunday was a full-fledged commitment to the season and the Scion. After a quick breakfast we buckled the dog in and headed out to the country for some pumpkin picking. I bought a big pumpkin to carve, and some little pumpkins and gourds to cook & decorate with. How gorgeous are these colours?
We waited until it was nice and dark before we headed over to the PowerHouse for the night. I gave away a pair of tickets on my blog last week. Are you sick of scrolling? I am! Going to write about our trip to the haunted houses in another post. I even took a video!
Did I mention I also had a baseball game, went grocery shopping, picked up a Halloween costume, brought back empties, went to Petsmart, went out for dinner, bought a birthday present, made a chip dip and pie/cheesecake, made it on time for McDonalds breakfast, and picked up my new iPhone? Seriously. That level of productivity can only happen with a car in the city!

Big thanks to my new friends at Scion Downtown! You guys are fun! 🙂
