Weekend Recap

Finally a spring weekend! I am so happy to see the snow melt and the sun out much more ๐Ÿ™‚


While I was making supper Chloe removed almost everything from a cabinet and then went into it.

I only had one lock from when Avery was younger since she really never tried to get into anything. But we have our hands full with keeping Chloe out of trouble these days.

We spent the evening watching some shows and I crafted for the upcoming birthday party.


More crafting in the morning, my Mom came over and hung out with the girls and we went grocery shopping. After we headed to a birthday party at a trampoline park. I had heard it can get very busy but it was not at all, Avery took 15-20 minutes or so to warm up to the trampolines and then loved it.

Chloe had a long afternoon nap then we set up and took her one year photos. I am pretty happy with the results despite some of my favs being blurry. We did a donut smash:

You guys will have to wait for the rest of the photos ๐Ÿ˜‰

We hosted a games night with my brothers and their girlfriends and stayed up way past out bedtime (1am):


Thankfully the girls slept in until 7:15 and 7:45am so we got the extra rest! I wanted to do a long run but the family was not feeling it so I did 5 miles on the treadmill and called it done. Soon I will be back in half marathon training and long runs will be back )

We spent the rest of the day crafting, doing chores and going for a walk to the park.

My little puppy dog ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekends!


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!
