Weekend Recap

Friday- all I really did was take naps. Since I could barely move, I figured that sounded like a pretty good itinerary. I mean, I’ve earned it?

nap

Damn right I worked hard. I pride myself on being super fast and efficient in my tasks and feel slightly bummed that I had to abruptly hand over my duties to my not-yet-ready replacement. Can’t worry about that now!!

Saturday- I got up at the crack of dawn and baked banana bread (using this recipe). Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out as well as my last loaf, but it’s nothing that a good slather of pb/nutella/butter can’t fix!

Tyler and I then had our second childbirth class at the hospital. There’s a ton of good info, but I HATE hospitals, so I just get a bit of anxiety thinking about being hooked up to a bunch of crap and well…just being in the hospital in general. I’m hoping that everything is smooth sailing so we can get in and out of there as quickly as possible.

Best part of the class: the instructor is HILARIOUS. She’s a retired OB from Argentina who is not afraid to make the men in class feel as awkward as possible. And I love it.

We finished off the day with a great steak dinner at home and watched Exodus in 3D with our snazzy glasses. It was trippy being able to watch a 3D movie at home on such a large screen.┬áThe movie was good but not too thrilling since my Catholic education pretty much gave away the ending. (that’s supposed to be funny.)

Sunday: I met my friend Susie for brunch at Nellie’s in Kensington (decided to get out of the house for a bit before the pain really kicked in for the day). All I really wanted was the bacon. But I managed to eat the eggs and fruit too. Hashtag healthy.

And I sold my very first thing on Kijiji! What a sad accomplishment. But in all honesty, I never really had anything worth selling since I moved to Calgary with none of my things except for a potion of my clothes. But, I managed to sell my monthly transit pass pretty quickly (hey, it’s $99/mo and I only used it for a couple days!)

The rest of the day was filled with laundry and laying around the house…while Tyler did a ton of household chores AND installed the car seat!

Here’s to hoping the coming week is slightly more exciting (doubtful!)

How was your weekend? Best thing you did?

Super Sunday

Per usual, I woke up at asscrack on Sunday. And again, per usual, the dog has raided the bed. For serious, the dang dog rules the roost. I almost lost an eye with this in my face:

Oh wait, you don’t see the danger in that picture? Lemme zoom out a bit and you’ll see what I mean..

Scary paw inmyface. Grr.

Moving on. We had out Easter brunch at Canada Olympic Park. Remember- this place:

I filled up on fruit and eggs to get some healthy into my not-so healthy Easter.

Then came this plate. I don’t wanna talk about it

After we scarfed brunch, we headed over to the Calgary Zoo. Dude, there were tons of animals. I was gasping left and right because, well, large hairy animals up close and personal are kinda awesome. Enjoy the following pics

Oh wait, that’s us.

And that’s a dinosaur. (to my fellow Americans: no that’s not a real dinosaur. They don’t exist in Canada either. Wah wah)

Haha, I ate one of them the night before!

To clarify: that’s a Grizzly Bear butt.

Since the penguin exhibit was new, we had to wait in line for about an hour to see them. It was cool though, one ended up splashing us- that’s how close we got. Our total tour of the zoo took about 3 1/2 hours- a nice long walk to diffuse the monsterous brunch from earlier.

When we got home, we watched the 6th Harry Potter movie (argh, enough already!) and had Easter dinner with Joe, Twyla and her brother. I forgot to take pics of the food (I’m sure it just creeps people out anyway. Tyler is used to it by now) and I threw together these for dessert

They’re homemade honey cupcakes with buttercream icing, toasted coconut and Cadbury mini eggs.

I seriously need to go on a diet now.

Happy find-eggs and eat chocolate day!

Hi there, my little sweater monkeys. I have lots to share with you, but I’m still amid the weekend festivities.. I hope to share all the cool stuff by tomorrow (who am I kidding, it’ll be up first thing tomorrow… I have nothing better to do!) but to give you a taste of what the past 24 hours have looked like:
