My weekend in the big city #CBias #EqualCanada

So last weekend I was in Vancouver for my birthday, I was pretty excited to go and it was even more fun than I imagined it would be.  My aunt was going over to visit a friend so we hopped into her car and hitched a ride.  Our plan was pretty open, lots of shopping, eating and drinking.  It was my 30th and Kristinas 9th birthday within days of each other. 

We stayed at the Delta hotel and resort in Downtown Vancouver.  I have never stayed at a hotel like the Delta before.  It was a very nice looking hotel, nice rooms, very friendly staff, the usual with a good hotel but the staff were nothing like I had ever met before.  The gentleman who served us dinner both nights was so friendly and nice.  He brought Kristina extra doughnuts for dessert and the following night he even brought them to her for an appy without knowing whether or not we were having a meal. 

He never charged us for her dinners, its free for under 6 so he just made it free.  When budgeting for a trip this is huge, he saved us so much money just in food alone.  He also comped my dinner for my birthday night and an appy for everyone to share.  He may have also comped a drink or two, I don't really remember how many I ordered :)

The breakfast waiter we had both days was amazing as well.  Not only did she give us the easiest directions to the best mall in the city, she is from the island where we are from, small world.  Even though we didn't know her so was so friendly and kind.  She comped my breakfast for my birthday and both of Kristinas!!

Here is what we had for Breakfast on my birthday!  I had the omelet, with hash browns, toast, and some fresh fruit.  I love that the fruit was already missing its rind, random I know but I don't like rind, even touching it lol.  My Mom had had a bagel with cream cheese and a nice big bowl of fruit and Kristina had Mickey Mouse pancakes with sausage and fruit.  We all loved our breakfast.  I tried some of the French Vanilla coffee, hoping it would be like Tim Hortons, I don't really like the taste of real coffee.  It was more like coffee than Tim Hortons French Vanilla so I had to add a whole lot of Equal to it to make it taste better. 

I was pretty excited to see that they had Equal in their sugar/sweetener collection.  I am looking for it everywhere I go now and it only seems to be in about 1/2 of the places I have been.  So thank you Delta hotel for everything you did to make our girls birthday weekend amazing!  You can learn more about Equal on their website, twitter @EqualCanada or on facebook!
