My exhausting (but fun) weekend


Friday nights I'm usually pretty lame because I'm usually ready to sleep at 10 haha. If I don't have plans with friends I usually hang out with my mom. We either make or go for dinner and have a few drinks.

This Friday I met a friend at the mall because she had an appointment at the Apple store so before her appointment we went to a few stores. I bought a maxi dress and a maxi skirt, and surprisingly nothing else haha.


My mom met us later and after my friend went home my mom and I went for some frozen yogurt at Tutti Frutti. My mom and I got introduced to this place when we were in Calgary visiting my cousin the other summer and ever since this is our favorite treat place to go to. After our fro-yo we went back to my place for drinks (and maybe a pizza.. that was a bad decision on my part lol).


Yesterday morning I tried making pro-oats with my new protein powder and it was amazing. Sorry for the crappy picture but my memory card crapped out on me so I can't use my camera now :(

I was worried that the oatmeal would be really dry but it actually made it really creamy and blended in really nice. I used 1/3 cup dry oats (cooked it), then added cinnamon, half a tablespoon of coconut oil, and half a banana, sliced. It was so good that I had it again this morning :)

Saturday was a nice relaxing day for me: I watched some TV in the morning with my boys, had breakfast and coffee, did my workout, and had lunch. On my way out to the party I had to stop and pay for my license and change the registration on my car since I'm walking to work and I had to wash my car because my back window was so dirty I couldn't even see out of it. Of course it rained the next day :/


The Winnipeg Jets are in the play offs for the first time since 95/96 so it's a big deal here. I don't watch any other hockey other than our team lol. My friend's dog Ace was in the spirit and had his jersey on.


 It was a beautiful day on Saturday, the sun was shining and it was fairly warm (for Winnipeg, anyway). It got pretty cool once the sun went down but we sat outside for a while.


Yesterday I did a much needed thorough cleaning of my apartment. I'll admit that I've become a bit lazy when it comes to cleaning and/or I just don't realize how much hair is floating around lol. I vacuumed, mopped, cleaned the mirrors on all three closet doors, dusted, cleaned the tub and toilet, wiped behind the toiled, and cleaned up the bathroom vanity. Once you get started it's almost hard to stop because when one thing is clean and tidied up it makes something else look messy or dirty. Now I just have to stay on top of this so it stays clean.

I've been sniffly and congested for the past week but on Friday night it got worse. I could barely breathe out of my nose and it got bad again on Saturday night. I took the last of my ibuprofen cold and sinus the other day so I didn't have anything at home and didn't get to take anything until I got to my mom's yesterday. I also stole her bottle of sinus medication, hehe.

On top of being sick yesterday I went out to visit my grandma. She's been in a care home for 8 years after having a severe stroke and her time is quickly approaching. I'm sad to say goodbye to her but I couldn't imagine laying in bed for the last few years of my life. She's tired and I don't blame her. Love you grandma <3
