Weekend Things

So, here is an update of our weekend. It’s Monday, and that’s what bloggers do on Mondays. This weekend was pretty awesome, and actually felt like we got a much needed break from the every day grind that comes with being an adult. On Friday night we used a gift card and went for a nice dinner out to The Keg and had a bottle of wine and steaks. I didn’t take any pictures, I failed at that in a big way this weekend so this post should be exciting. I had been looking forward to this dinner all damn week and it was just so nice to drink too much wine and eat a big steak.

This picture isn’t really related to our dinner, but James had flowers delivered to me on Thursday at work “just because” and they’re so beautiful I had to show you guys.

He Held Me Accountable, Rude.

Oh, hey! First things first, let’s talk about food because its my favourite thing to talk about. On Monday night after dinner I had a craving for peanut butter and chicken together. NO, I am not pregnant. Sometimes I just have weird cravings, okay? So anywho, I did some research online and found a recipe for Skinny Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken that you can find here. On Monday night before I went to bed, I food prepped for Tuesday’s dinner like champ. Note: this never happens.

AM Workouts and It Hurts to Walk

So yesterday I woke up stupid early and went to the gym at 6:30 AM before work. I made up my own workout, and I wanted to quit after 3 sets but kept going until I finished 5 sets and I’m pretty proud of myself for possessing that willpower at that ungodly hour of the day.

I Fell Off The Wagon

Oh hey, I’m back! You might be wondering what I’ve been up to these past few weeks. Well, work was stupid busy which meant that I couldn’t blog or work out, I totally fell off the wagon. I know, I don’t want to talk about it. But then, my mom and sister flew in from Ontario (mom) and Calgary (sister) to spend the long weekend with me and go wedding dress shopping (!!!).

Things That Make You Go Hmm..

So, I think we all knew that I was going to fall off the wagon with this blog everyday thing and look what happened. Oh well, I had a good streak while it lasted. Sometimes life just gets in the way, actually career…sometimes your career just kicks your a$$ and you can only manage to crawl into bed and in the fetal position at night. Doing anything requires extra effort like eating healthy or writing something witty on the old blog-eroo, just ain’t happenin’.

Speaking of eating healthy, last night James asked me if I wanted to go for a Dairy Queen date and my face lit up like:

Rise and Shine!

Today’s blog post is supposed to be writing a letter to an inanimate object, but I did that on Sunday when I wrote a love letter to my blackberry. I guess I killed two birds with one stone on that one. So, today I will just do my own thing and will be back to the blogging challenge topics tomorrow.

The Best Day

So, yesterday was the best day. We hiked the sea to sky trail in Squamish, BC with our friends Ryan and Jessica, and it was incredible. The hike was 10 km in distance, and 1km vertical climb, and we didn’t pack any food which was smart. By the 3/4 mark, we were all getting a little tired and hangry, and super hot. The weather here was 32 C yesterday which is unheard of for these parts, and our bodies are not acclimatized anymore to such conditions. We climbed up and took the gondola down, and I think we were all grateful that we didn’t have to climb down.

One Thing

Okay, before I get started on today’s blogging topic, I have to tell you about the most amazing pancakes that I made this morning. There is nothing as wonderful as making an amazing breakfast on Sunday mornings. I used pancake mix, but added a scoop of protein powder, ground up oats, ground flax, and fresh blueberries.

Dinner with 5 People

Today’s blog topic is 5 people you’d like to have dinner with. I’ll admit, I’ve never loved these questions about people you’d have dinner with because I feel like my answers are mainly shallow and then I feel bad about myself for not reading more books or thinking more profoundly. The truth is, I don’t want to have dinner with Kate Middleton because I will surely drop food on myself and I would cringe about it for the rest of my days. I’d rather just avoid the embarrassing experience altogether. So, here are some people that wouldn’t really mind if I spilled food on myself, I think.
