Weekend Snapshots

It felt like a winter weekend over here! And to be honest we all have cabin fever despite getting out – we miss summer!

Saturday we took the girls to Wingfest then afterwards my Mom, Avery and I went to our favourite market – All Things Pretty market.

Our afternoon at home we baked and coloured:

Chloe is oddly obsessed with playing in the bathtub these days:

Wingfest – desptire being cold we enjoyed the event!

I forgot to take photos of what we got but the girls got outfits from Mini Street, some bath bombs, hair clips, hooded towels (Christmas gift for them) – I am realizing they got all the good stuff!!! haha

Sunday we woke up to more snow, I had my last long run to do and after 10km called ti quits as it was getting slushy and slippery in areas.

Chloe in her Mini Street outfit – yes, those are pleather pants.

Afternoon of my crafting and PlayDoh:

I am realizing we have to keep these girls a lot busier come these colder months so need to brainstorm some ideas!


Foodie Friday

Hello Friday! Guess what we welcomed this week?? SNOW! Ahh! I only remember one other birthday where I had snow and of course it was the year my parents rented and craned in a hot tub for my birthday party – HA. But I am confident this snow will be gone in no time 😉

This week I celebrated turning 34 – which was a low-key day and just what I wanted. Lunch with friends, family supper and cake then a massage Chad booked for me 🙂

It is my work busy season so 4:30pm comes in a blink these days and weeks fly by so my weeks are pretty uneventful in the evenings!

Moving right into meal planning – which by the way I do plan to share on IG stores soon!

Saturday – “Wing Fest” Event – if we can find a sitter!

Sunday – Tuna wraps & sweet potato fries

Monday – Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken with roasted broccoli – Well Plated by Erin

Tuesday – Anniversary Supper Out

Wednesday – Thai Peanut Tofu Buddha Bowl – My Fresh Perspective 

Thursday – Pancakes for supper – Avery’s request

Friday – OUT

Weekend plans include a market date with my Mom and Avery, maybe yard work if the weather improves and baking – chilly days must do!


Weekend Snapshots

This weekend I busted out my camera – something I try to do once a month or so versus always having phone photos – though they are great too!

Friday night we had a get together at my co-workers – these kids all get along so well!

Saturday’s highlight was checking out a new park and visiting our favourite park:

Two hours later and neither girl wanted to go home!

That night I had a girls night – axe throwing (three bullseyes!) and supper with three of my girlfriends from high school:

Sunday morning was our long run – 16km – almost taper time!

So many beautiful fall colours – which made me decide to take photos of the girls after nap time – which went okay, I got some good ones for sure but not the ones I wanted – of course! So just means another day out for more photos 😉 haha. I decided to attempt our own photos of Christmas cards this year so this was attempt #1.

How I had to take photos for awhile – Chloe attached to my leg!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


Foodie Friday

This week was a blur, between the whole school thing, dental appointments and busy days I need to figure out a new groove these days so that I feel slightly more with it 😉

One photo from this week, fall and Halloween pjs already!

Straight into meal planning!

Saturday – BBQ for Chad & the girls as I have a girls night!

Sunday – Slow Cooker Black Bean soup & pesto veggie sandwiches

Monday – 30 Minute Chicken Stir-Fry – Natasha’s Kitchen 

Tuesday – Greek Turkey Burgers & kale salad – Budget Bytes

Wednesday – Birthday Supper

Thursday – Quick & Easy Creamy Tomato Pasta –Oh She Glows

Friday – Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa

Big plans for the weekend include a much needed girls night, a Costco trip and hopefully some park hopping with the girls 🙂


Long Weekend Snapshots

While I dreamt of one last beach weekend with hot weather we had quite the opposite and it definitely felt like the last weekend of summer.

Friday night the girls and I had a girls movie night. I lost and we watched a Veggie Tales movie but they did share the popcorn 😉

On Saturday we spent the afternoon at the Kraay Farm and corn maze. This place is so fun – and you could spend an entire day there – there is so much to do!

Lets play find Chloe – outfit fail!

So excited that she could write her name on the truck!

Our best attempts at a family photo – Chloe just wanted to run!

Sunday was a 19km run, coffee at McDonalds in princess dresses, chores then one last time out at the river property for a hot dog roast.

Yesterday was spent baking, hanging out at home, decorating for fall, sorting summer and fall clothes and a few errands,

And taking photos of Princess Chloe – she is obsessed with playing dress -up these days so I had to document it 🙂


I squeezed in a run later, which despite the sun being out was chilly!
