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


Foodie Friday

These days are flying by so fast that Friday comes in a blink of an eye!

Monday I had the day off with the girls, we were supposed to meet a friend at the zoo but Mother Nature was not cooperating so instead I caved and took them to Treehouse – a place I try to avoid:

Other highlights:

  • Avery’s kindergarten orientation night! She starts school TODAY! Ahh!!
  • A run that was not too hot or smokey meant a 38 minute 8km!

Onto meal planning for September!

Saturday – Roasted Pesto Veggie Panini & sweet potato fries – The Garden Grazer

Sunday – Grilled Honey Lemon Butter Salmon, rice & roasted asparagus – Averie Cooks

MondaySouptacular & Honey Cornbread Muffins – Averie Cooks

Thursday – Turkey Tacos

Friday – OUT

I am not sure what we will get up to this long weekend! I have a couple ideas but MOther Nature needs to be on our side! Then baking and my last 20km long run!
