Oh, Weekends

26 January 2014

Oh weekends, how you go by so quickly.  It's like it's 5 o'clock on a Friday evening and then you blink and it's suddenly Sunday evening.  How does that happen every. single. time?  But enough complaining because, despite it flying by, it was a great one.  And that's really all that matters!

Friday night myself and Todd went to The Keg for dinner to celebrate his 29th birthday and we literally ate ourselves into a food coma.  Hot bread. Check. Martini. Check. Calamari. Check. The most mouth-watering steak I've ever put to my lips. Check. The creamiest garlic mashed potatoes ever. Check.  And how about a big slab of birthday cake? Um, check. I'm drooling just reliving that moment over again.  I guess no more explanations are needed about how much we enjoyed our night.

And then today I had one of my closest friends baby shower. Jessie has been the first out of all of my friends to become pregnant and it's been so awesome watching that belly of hers grow. Since my sister lives away, I was never able to witness that exciting part with my two nephews (only through a phone screen) so I've always been in such an amazement every time I see her.  And I can't believe that in only 5 more weeks I'll be amazed once again!

Do you remember The Very Hungry Caterpillar?  I forgot how much I loved that book!
Thankfully my sister helped me in the children's books department.

Not only did she love her gift but the dip I made for her shower seemed to be a big hit (pat on the back). I'll be sharing that here this week so if you're on a healthy Mexico kick like me, you might want to stay away.  Wait, actually pleassssse don't stay away- come back and drool at it like I'll be doing! Misery loves company, right?

Oh and I made it to the gym both days over the weekend which means that my total gym days for last week were 6...again. Another pat on the back. I'm still waiting on my award from last week, though!

And technically my weekend isn't quite over yet because I still have Sean and Catherine's wedding to watch tonight and I am soooo excited!  Their season was, hands down, my all time favourite Bachelor season.  Who else is watching?  It's happening like....NOW!!!!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  9. I wanted the bachelor wedding too!! LOVED IT. They are so cute. and congrats on the 6 gym days. I need to really get on that so I don't get too fat during this pregnancy haha

  10. The whole "grown sexy" thing was weird and I never really understood it. I'm so jealous you are heading somewhere warm soon :)

  11. Going to the gym six times is awesome! Way to go. Also, I love the Hungry Caterpillar. What an awesome book. Linking over from your comment on Erin's blog today :) I also wanted to let you know that I'm starting a "Runners Tell All" linkup in February. I'm just trying to spread the word so we can build an awesome and motivating running community. Here's the link: http://www.theladyokieblog.com/2014/01/runners-tell-all-announcing-monthly.html
