Weekend Recap

We had a sunny weekend and it tired us all out – as I type this Chloe is in bed (6:45pm) and Avery will soon follow.


We went to Chad’s Dad’s & Step-Mom’s for supper and by the time we got home and got the girls to bed that was all i wanted to do too. I made up a quick workout with free weights and then crawled into bed shortly after.

Avery earlier in the day before school – she was really excited all week to use her umbrella.


Swim lessons in the morning – which went great, Chloe hides in the lockers beforehand ๐Ÿ˜‰

Peek-a-boo games outside:

We spent the rest of the day around home and at the park.

We cleaned up the yard for fall/winter, Avery helped me wash all my onions.

Made muffins:

We had an early supper then a family movie night:


We were up and out early for a run since we had a busy day ahead. While fall runs are chilly at 8am the sun warms you up and it is a welcome change for sweaty summer runs!

We spent the morning at our community BBQ, where the bouncy house was the main hit:

Then after a quick nap and a stop into my work we went to my niece’s 2nd birthday party. It was Moana themed and amazing! They had a bouncy house there too ๐Ÿ™‚

I sadly took no photos!

We got home and did some colouring – Chloe loved colouring…herself – which by the way did not come off…

I finished the evening doing laundry and relaxing and think an early bedtime is in order for me too!



Foodie Friday

Well it is official we had our first snow yesterday – blah! But it did not accumulate or stay thankfully and the weekend looks sunny again ๐Ÿ™‚

Our week could have been better – both Chad and I came down with colds ๐Ÿ™ Chloe had a runny nose for a couple days and Avery lucked out. So this meant a quiet week for us all.

Tuesday night we did have a date night for our anniversary and the concert we had planned to go through got cancelled so instead we went for supper and drinks. I was feeling crappy so we headed home after that but still had a nice night out.


I took no photo of the girls this week except one of Avery helping Chloe when we got home, Chloe refuses to let me help her with her shoes and coat – only Avery is allowed:

Exercise wise I got three lunch classes, two spin classesย and a yoga class. I have to admit lunch classes are really awesome these days, it frees up my evenings and lets me extra sleep in the morning.

With this cooler weather brings fall-inspired suppers which I was so ready for!

Saturday – BBQ Chicken Quesadillas – Budget Bytes

Sunday – Turkey Chili

Monday – One Pot Sausage Pasta – Two Peas & Their Pod

Tuesday – Minestrone Soup & grilled cheese – Two Peas & Their Pod

Wednesday – Easy Shrimp & Broccoli Stir-Fry – Damn Delicious

Thursday– Turkey Avocado Club Wraps & sweet potato fries

Friday – Slow Cooker Taco Chicken Bowls – Budget Bytes

This weekend we have a community BBQ and my niece’s 2nd birthday party and that will be more than enough for me! Enjoy your weekends!


Weekend Recap

While it is not technically fall yet it felt like a perfect fall weekend!


Nothing too exciting, a Fitness Blender workout and Big Brother once Chad was home from the gym.


We had swimming lessons first thing. Avery told her instructor she “does not like water” but thankfully her lesson went okay after that ๐Ÿ˜‰ Chloe and I have lessons at the same time and she was just indifferent to it all.

Hopscotch outside after:

We did the typical errands after, came for naps then headed out for a walk. We have a beautiful sanctuary area minutes from out house but sadly it was badly damaged in the wind storm we had in June. This area had been closed for months after for clean up and recently all re-opened. I knew it was bad but areas are completely leveled.

It is still beautiful but not the same for sure. Avery had the time of her life exploring everything!

We had supper, my Mom came over shortly after then we all went to the hockey game! It was just a pre-season game but Avery still enjoyed it and Chloe had fun then fell asleep. We headed home in the third period.


Chloe was up about 6:40am – yawn – lately the girls have been sleeping until 7:30-8am on weekends so anything earlier seems rough now ๐Ÿ˜‰

We headed out for a 9km run, it was a bit chilly at first but the skies were blue and sun was out!

I got some much needed cleaning done during Chloe’s nap, then we made cookies.

I am on the hunt for some more fall decor so headed to Winners but no dice really – boo! We had a few other stops but by then the girls had enough so home we went.

At home we ventured into our playroom, we barely used it all summer but I think this will change now! I still want to change this area up more to have areas (reading, dolls, arts etc) but cannot seem to figure out how to make this work!

Miss Chloe eating – what she does 80% of her awake hours ๐Ÿ˜‰

Our next few weekends are busy so it was nice to have a slower than usual weekend!


Foodie Friday

Minutes ago it hit me it was Thursday! And since I have 30 minutes before spin class you are all in luck ๐Ÿ˜‰

This week’s highlight? My birthday! 32 was pretty darn good and 33 will be better I know it ๐Ÿ™‚ I had my family over for cake after supper and was spoiled by everyone. Gift cards for coffee, an organics store, kombucha, a new blow dryer (my request), a sign I wanted and the beautiful flowers plus cupcakes and cake, what more could a girl want?!

Yeah my Mom fit all 33 candles on that cake!

Nothing else to report from our week, we have had a few much needed rainy days and I really will not complain about that.

My girls being silly in the tub:

Meal planning…

Saturday – Taco Salad

Sunday – Greek turkey Tacos – Whitney Bond

Monday –ย Veggie Burgers with Green Salad with oranges, beets and avocado – Gimme Some Oven

Tuesday – OUT (belated date night for our anniversary!)

Wednesday – Homemade Pizza

Thursday – One Pot Taco Spaghetti – Damn Delicious

Friday –ย French toast & turkey bacon

We have almost no weekend plans! Just swimming lessons and a hockey game so far ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
