Weekend Recap

We had a quiet weekend back at home – it felt good to just hang out after two weeks away!


We made a much needed Costco trip in the morning. Felt good to stock the fridge back up! Our afternoon was un-pictured, but involved a visit with some friends, fort making, playing and then we headed to a friend’s house for a dinner party. By the time we got home it was 10pm and we all went right to bed!


We all slept past 7am! Chad and I both worked out, I just did a 3 mile run and some weights. I am taking a much needed running break and ready to do some other things before I jump into Sea Wheeze training.

We took Avery to yoga class and had coffee while she was in class – hopefully we can get her more now than we do not have long runs Sunday mornings.

At home I did a bunch of meal prep. I need to get better at doing this on Sundays, I made energy balls, banana bread and then prepped food for lunches and suppers.

Is that Slate Plate not awesome?! I need to get better at my designing on it but so excited to see if for photos and entertaining!

The girls painted, Avery told me “I love making messes!”, yes I know that ๐Ÿ˜‰

Not much else to report on our weekend, hope everyone enjoyed their weekends!


Weekend Recap

Jumping into our weekend:


Nothing too exciting to chat about, bedtime “spaceship” rides are a huge hit these days and leaves Mom and Dad tired after haha


The day started with Avery’s last ballet/jazz class, we got to watch (and my brother’s girlfriend came too!) and it was more exciting than last time. She is not a fan of being watched but did great in the circle activities.

I left it up to her on if she wanted to continue another session after holidays and she said no that she wants to go to yoga so now to figure how we can make that work ๐Ÿ™‚

After we went to Winners to look for a few things and left with those and more:

Avery needed bigger runners (these are more casual but will work) and Chloe needed something she can walk in with a sole.

In the afternoon Avery joined me at the spa for her first spa day! She loved it and has bright pink fingernails and bright orange toenails with all the sparkles now ๐Ÿ™‚

I tried out gel polish on my toes hoping it lasts longer! Downside of being a runner, nothing lasts!

The rest of the day was spent playing at home, doing endless puzzles and having my Mom for supper.


It did not look too nice out (so foggy) to run so we ran on the treadmill for a short 10km (ha). I am not sure how ready I am for this race but I will give it my all.

Our was was spent packing, taking photos of a friends new baby and visiting with my brothers.


Weekend Recap


Mid afternoon I emailed Chad to see if we could go for supper ad he agreed so after work we went to Famoso, Avery was beyond excited to eat out:

We watched a movie once the girls were in bed but I fell asleep almost instantly!


I took Avery to dance in the morning while Chad went over to our community hockey tournament. Avery is liking dance a lot more these days, she only has one week left so we will take a break after. While I like her in programs etc I also think kids need breaks from them.

We got home, bundled up and headed to the tournament. My Grandma came by for a bit and Avery was grumpy for some reason. Around lunch we headed home to eat then I went back to help and clean up.

How does she look 12 here?!

Later we made Valentine’s for Avery’s dayhome friends:

And the puzzle obsession continues, I bought some second hand ones for her:

Chloe’s hair always look so red in photos, but in person it is not at all, so odd!

We had a family movie night, Storks that night:


It looked like a perfect morning for a run so we headed out around 9am for 15km. It was pretty nice but could have been sunnier if I want to be picky ๐Ÿ˜‰

We spent the day making Valentine’s day cookies, muffins and visiting with my one brother.

And attempting photos, Chloe was not having it – sitting still is horrible – so we made do:

And now we are ready to tackle another week!


Weekend Recap

Super Bowl meant I was typing this post way too late last night!superbowl

Our weekend:


I was off a tad early for Chloe’s monthly weight check in then we made a Starbucks pit stop.

Oh and I got my first Frock Box and loved two of the items, olive green pants and a jacket:

I have NO idea how to take a decent outfit photo!


Dance class in the morning, then grocery shopping as usual.

We spent some time playing at home, then during nap time Iย cleaned and after Avery and I made muffins.

How awesome and true is this shirt?

Avery asked to go bowling so we met my Mom there for a game, she had a ton of fun and almost won (my Mom beat her by one point). After she played some arcade games with money she earned from cleaning and loved that as well.

We had an early supper then a family movie night to watch Trolls. The best selfie I could get and excuse my no makeup, just showered look!

Chloe loved it and fell asleep right at 7:30pm on my lap so we got her to bed and watched the rest.


We did our long runs on the treadmill in the morning followed by brunch, Avery asked for pink waffles so that was what I made!

After I finished cleaning and got snacks ready since we had friends coming over for Super Bowl. We spent the rest of the day visiting and hanging out and eating too many snacks ๐Ÿ˜‰

Photos from the day:

Hope everyone had a great weekend!



Weekend Recap

We had a great weekend between having an extra day off together and the beautiful weather!


Dayhome was closed so I stayed home with the girls, we had a morning appointment then I took Avery to yoga and had a coffee date with this gal:

She kept trying to hand me toys when I went to take her photo:

After we went into my work for an hour so I could do a few things, then grabbed smoothies for lunch and headed home. Both girls napped so i worked more – fun, fun ๐Ÿ˜‰

Later we put up Valentines decorations – well the few things we have:

My chalk art is not getting any better!

Avery is obsessed with this cat book a friend gave her and we are now experts in cat breeds ๐Ÿ˜‰

The girls had so much fun with these noise makers I found!

Chad ended up with hockey tickets so we decided to go last minute and invite my Mom. The girls did great but after the second period we noticed Avery was really warm so we headed home.

I took her temperature and it was 103! She has never had any fever so I did not even have anything at home to give her so ended up going out to buy medication.


Avery woke up with no fever and said she felt good so off to dance class we went. I peeked in a couple times and she was doing so good too!

We ran errands, came home for lunch then Avery and I headed to see Peter Pan (a play) with Becky and Liam. Despite insisting she was not sick and felt fine, she was not herself but still really loved the play.

We checked out a showhome we bought tickets to win later, then had saw a Chicken and Waffles food truck and had to stop:

Boys ๐Ÿ˜‰

We had a quiet evening, Avery ended up with a fever again, but Advil took it down pretty fast.


Avery got up and was her normal self and wanted food right away – two good signs! We had a quiet morning and just played until my Mom came to watch the girls so we could tackle our long run alone.

We ended up doing 21km and could not have had a better day to do so!

We spent the day doing house chores, laundry, washing floors and then headed to the park after Chloe had her afternoon nap.

Despite Avery having a fever on and off we still had a great weekend!
