Foodie Friday

I am actually off work today – YAY! But with a huge to do list, starting with a pre-school field trip, then a hair appointment and getting our rental house ready for a new tenant. Hopefully we finish early and can enjoy some of this weather before it leaves us!

Our week… All week was so nice out. Monday evening Chad suggested skipping baths that night and going for a walk. So happy we did!

Tuesday I worked late, Wednesday I had book club and last night more rental house stuff 😉 So it was busy.

I am so thankful for lunch hour workouts these days, not sure when I would work out if not!

My favourite new lunch hour hang out, My Revolution – post coming soon on this!

Meal planning!

Saturday – Greek Chicken Wraps & sweet potato fries

Sunday – Chicken Pot Pie Soup & biscuits – Gimme Some Oven

Monday – Shrimp Fried Rice – Averie Cooks

Tuesday – Crockpot Chicken Tacos – Belle of the Kitchen

Wednesday – Leftovers for the family since I work late

Thursday – eanut Chicken with Noodles – Averie Cooks

Friday – Italian Chicken Pasta Salad & Garlic toast – Averie Cooks

Weekend plans! I signed up for a race tomorrow morning only to realize it leaves me 10 minutes to get from swimming lessons to the start line and that will not happen so sadly it is out. I will be on the look for another one since I had hoped to run a 10km race this fall. And then we are just getting the final things done at the rental house and I have a longer to do list at home since Sunday looks rainy.

Enjoy your weekends!

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.

Friday

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.

Saturday

Swim lessons in the morning – which went great, Chloe hides in the lockers beforehand 😉

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:

Sunday

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 🙂

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 🙂

Our week could have been better – both Chad and I came down with colds 🙁 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 classes 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!

Friday

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

Saturday 

We had swimming lessons first thing. Avery told her instructor she “does not like water” but thankfully her lesson went okay after that 😉 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.

Sunday

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 😉

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 😉

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