That Time I... Watched the Jays From Our Hotel Window

I really wanted to throw Andrew a surprise party for his 25th, but since he was away for the weekend of his birthday (and the weekend before), and with the timing of our move, it wasn't possible. Fortunately, last year, he was able to celebrate with his friends in an awesome suite!

Hey look, the baseball field!
What made this suite so awesome? It overlooked the Rogers Centre (aka. The Skydome)! You know, the place where our Major League Baseball games are held. Basically, you could watch a live baseball game from the hotel window!

Upstairs view
They say 'go big or go home' right? So, go big is what I did and I made sure the suite had two floors, so it would be large enough for a big group of friends.

I also had a cheese platter, wine and a card waiting for him in the room upon arrival.

The one thing I didn't take a picture of, that I really should have, was the washroom. Let me just tell you that the shower in that washroom was absolutely amazing. It had massage blasters in it! Okay, so maybe that's not what they're called, but you get the idea. Basically, the shower was the shower that dreams are made of.

I also got Andrew and I matching Blue Jays t-shirts so we could cheer on our (losing) team together!

Of course, there was cake! Ice cream cake, no less! (Provided by one of Andrew's friends.)

Now let's just enjoy some pictures!

Say what?

We actually love each other

Cake cake cake!
Have you ever booked a fancy hotel room?

Now go visit my dear friend Emily!


  1. That looks amazing! How cool that it looks over the field. Also, drooling over the cheese platter...

  2. Seriously? That might be the coolest hotel view ever!!! How fun!

  3. Aw what an awesome thing to do for his birthday! That is so cool that it overlooked the baseball dome, you think of everything!

  4. Is it too corny for me to say that's a sweet suite?? Haha! I would love to see a game from a suite sometime...and then if I can just crawl in bed afterward, that would be even better!

  5. This is my first time hearing about a hotel that looks over the baseball field but it looks like a amazing thing to experience. Way better then sitting at home watching it on TV!
    :) Glad you guys had a great time

  6. WOW ! I just love this location , puurrfect! And it's such a great idea of you , lady genius.

  7. This is seriously the best birthday idea ever! Sam is a massive Jays fan so next time he goes to Canada to visit his family this might be in store for us. I hope you got major, major girlfriend props for organizing this birthday! xx

  8. Thanks for the invite, jerk.

  9. Okay, this is AWESOME! I have never heard of a hotel looking over a baseball field like that. Definitely putting that on my list of things to do before I die! Haha. I'm thinking I might have to change my That Time I posts to Thursdays. Tuesdays are my longest days and I just know I won't be able to get myself to write a post every week...hence me missing this week and last week, haha. If you want to switch to Thursdays as well, let me know! But if not I'll still link up with ya. :D

  10. Ok, this is too funny! As you know, I was JUST at the Jays game tonight and I was wondering what those hotel rooms look like from the inside. I've actually being wondering this my whole life I think. Now I know!!! They're gorgeous!!! So much fun.

    Oh, and we lost. Again.

  11. Whoah that room is RIDICULOUS!!

  12. that is amazing! i didn't know such a thing existed, but now i want to go!

  13. SO AWESOME!! a long time ago, i won tickets to see aerosmith in the box and it was the best thing ever!!

    Vodka and Soda

  14. That's incredible!! I didn't know that they had anything like this! I showed my husband the pictures and he heard of this.. but thought the pictures were great! I would LOVE to see a Jay's game one day.. Way to do a big b'day celebration! Best. Present. Ever.

  15. that is an amazing suite! and what a sweet birthday for andrew!! i love the candid shots of the two of you - so sweet! sometimes, i feel like candids are the best! and what an awesome photo at the end!! :)
