Weekend Recap

This is the first Monday in a long time that I’m glad the weekend is over- only because Mon-Fri usually consists of a more routine day for me and Wes.

Friday: Tyler worked from home, but I acted like he wasn’t there so that Wes and I could still do our normal Friday thing. After a couple of feedings/play/yadda yadda, we went to the mall to walk a few laps. I also managed to restock on my Lush must have’s (ugh…wallet hurt).

Ocean Salt is my go to scrub- LOVE the smell and the consistency and how my skin feels after it’s rinsed off!)

Lovely Jubblies is intended to be a breast cream, but I put it all over my body because the whole thing could use some firming..not just the tatas! Plus, it smells like a dreaaaam. The sales associate told me they were discontinuing this soon which is a HUGE disappointment.

After we got back from the mall, I took Wes for a 45 minute walk around the neighborhood. It was HOT and I got really sweaty, mostly because I was going at a pretty brisk pace and went up every hill I could find. Wes stayed cool in the shade and slept the whole time. Lucky baby.

Tyler made a stupid good pizza for dinner and we watched Home after Wes went to bed. Ok, we watched half of Home because we got too tired.


Saturday: I went to spin in the morning. One of my favorite tracks is Rihanna’s Jump (i have searched high and low for the exact remix and can’t find it. Here’s the closest one->)

Uhhh so good.

Later, I met up with Susie at Stampede. We stuck to the Nashville North tent while we were there. PS: Apparently it’s not as fun when you’re not black-out drunk. Also not as fun when you’re older than 90% of the people there. We still managed to have a good time, a few beers, and I lost my voice from trying to shout over the music.




We walked over to Ange’s place afterwards to watch the fireworks/chat/be annoying. I didn’t get home until 2am! NOT fun to take the train at the end of the night during stampede-so many gross and drunk people!

Sunday: Tyler fed Wes in the AM so I was able to catch up on a bit of sleep (PHEW). The rest of the day was spent doing chores, playing with Wes, watching the last day of stampede, and squeezing in a workout.


How was your weekend??

Riddle Me This

Riddle me this, internet. WHY would it cost only $10 for me to mail something to the US and have it arrive a week later, but it costs $14 to mail the same size box within Canada- only it takes TWO weeks? Silly Canada post. 1 point to Newman.


I built another wine rack this weekend! Because you know, I’m really into wine these days. Pffff


Oooh, and I FINALLY went to a spin class this week! I originally bought a 10 class hot yoga pass to my favorite studio Hot Yoga and Spin on Crowfoot, but when I found out I was preg, I asked if I could transfer the pass to spin instead. Then I just felt like shit for 3 straight months, so I never got to go. Good news: I loved the class! I’ve actually never taken a class that requires clip-in shoes, but I found it to be WAY better than using cages. The instructor had a rockin’ playlist and attitude which really got me pumped up.

I was actually nervous the first few minutes of class because I didn’t want to get my heart rate up too much and hurt the thing in my stomach (read: baby). But I managed to keep everything at my own pace as much as I could and pushed myself a little bit. IT FELT GOOD. End of story.



PS: If anyone at work asks me ONE MORE TIME how I’m feeling I’m going to bop them on the head. (Does anyone else get annoyed by this? I get the genuine concern and all, but that doesn’t mean it’s ALL I want to talk about)

I went to a tea party last week with my Calgary pal, Susie! Good news: It was fun to hang out and try some new teas. Bad news: I found out that I can drink like ZERO of them because apparently there are SO many different things I can’t consume. Whatever, I still bought some and a really cute glass mug/steeper thingy.

Things I’ve been obsessed with lately:

-fruit by the foot/fruit roll ups (yup, stopped at Safeway after spin class and bought a few boxes. They’re gone already)

-The Good Wife. Still on season 1- only because I watch it in bed and usually fall asleep in about 5 minutes.

-the Lush Snowman Shower Jelly¬†and their Lovely Jubblies breast cream (it was REALLY hard for me to type that B-word.) And I’m actually using that -ish all over my body since it’s basically a firming cream and it smells like heaven mixed with rainbow sprinkles and ponies and naps. (it smells good)

-I can’t stop listening to Fergie’s new song. And I can’t stop laughing about it- because if that video is supposed to rep people from LA (cough cough, where I was born and raised) should I be wearing a massive platinum braid and riding around in a bus decorated with palm trees and a giant skull? And I’m also laughing if there were ever a song about Canada Love- everyone would be drizzled in syrup with fuzzy boots and hockey pucks.

I was looking on Etsy for some new Christmas stockings and ummmmm, they’re expensive. I sent a pic of some I like to my mom and she sent me back a pic a few days later of some she made for me…FOR FREE Y’ALL.


P.S. Note the price on the top Etsy pic. And I think that’s the price for only THREE.

Ooh, and guess what? My otter box iPhone case broke a few weeks ago and I got a replacement from them for free! Pretty sweet, huh? Their website shows you what you need to submit to get a replacement under their warranty.

And I got a new dress for a wedding. It’s peplum so apparently that makes it flattering around the midsection??

Last but not least, the best photo I could get of the three of us at the river before the friggin snow and -29 degree weather kicked in:
