~What I did this Weekend~

What a deep freeze it was! On Friday we went to our friends' house for dinner. Our god daughter is growing so much!! I can't believe she is almost 6 months!

Saturday I did stuff around the house all day to avoid going outside! It was so cold out there, close to -20C. Hubby's cousin, her husband and their 2 year old came for a quick visit. Jordan is such a cutie but they aren't lying about the terrible twos! I am really wondering what I got myself into! They say girls aren't as hyper... It also helped us know what we need to do to childproof our house when the time comes.
That evening I went to a bridal shower and hubby went to a bachelor party. It was a late night for both of us.

On Saturday, I texted my running instructor and she said they wouldn't be going for a walk the next morning with the practice club as they were dealing with a dying furnace. Since the last thing I wanted to do was go for a walk in -20C by myself, I stayed snuggled in bed on Sunday morning.

It started off as a very lazy day doing stuff around the house. I picked our Christmas baking recipes and made the grocery list. I suddenly got a burst of energy and decided to run out and do some Christmas shopping at 3:00pm. It wasn't hugely successful-  I hate it so much when I have a list of things to buy and I can't find any of them! Since hubby was under the weather, I went grocery shopping. Again I couldn't find a few things I needed for Christmas baking. It's a conspiracy!

The rest of the night I baked some muffins (Almond and Poppy Seed- not bad) and relaxed. I wanted to do a yoga workout but my feet were killing me so I thought it was best to put them up than try to balance on one foot!


HBBC Update

This amazing challenge officially started on Saturday and I have a whopping 2 points to add- all for eating 7 servings of fruits & veggies. This was not a weekend of workouts. Last night I cut up a bunch of fruit & vegetables so it should be easy to get the healthy eating points.

Points this week Nov 19-25: 2
Points Total: 4


  1. It was dang cold out this weekend! Yesterday actually wasn't too bad...I took Harley for a walk in the afternoon and it was quite nice!

  2. Dying furnace and -20 are two things you don't want to see in the same sentence. I don't blame you for staying in bed since you wouldn't have company...

  3. That sounds cold! Good plan to stay cozy in bed!

  4. Sounds like it would have been the perfect opportunity to apply my parenting technique. Jarrett knows the one. Red Green took his inspiration from me.


I love reading your comments!
