Weekend Recap

September 22, 2014

Ugh. Another Monday. I went into the weekend with no plans and no child. Since I’ve been so exhausted lately, I had hoped a lot of relax time would happen. That wasn’t so much the case. I had a great weekend, but I didn’t cure that run down feeling I’ve been feeling.

It was business as usual until Liam went to bed. Once he was down, I had intentions of fitting in a good session with my yoga mat, however technology had other plans and I couldn’t get my video to play. I reverted to some headstand practice instead.


Thrilling, right? It’s my mission to build the strength for pincha, or forearm pose. I attempted it against the door and holy man was I shaking. It will be awhile before I get there, but I WILL get it.

I eventually settled into the couch with a big mug of tea for a chick flick.

Liam was up around 7:30. We ate breakfast and got ready for the day before heading down to the farmers market. But not without a quick stop into Bikram Yoga. They carry Spiritual Gangster stuff and there’s a tank I’ve been coveting for awhile now but could never get in my size. I knew they had just gotten a new shipment and I HAD to get my hands on that tank. I’m so happy I finally did, even though it was quite pricey. Well worth it, my new favourite for sure.

After the market I was off to get some errands out of the way. I needed to find some decorations and whatnot for Liam’s birthday party as well as his gift! His birthday theme this year is Bubble Guppies (his favourite show) and there is literally NO Bubble Guppies party stuff anywhere in the city, aside from the random piñata at Bulk Barn. And yes, I bought it and hilarity will ensure with a bunch of two year olds trying to bust a piñata in my tiny condo. Side note: any suggestions on what to fill it with since two years olds probably don’t need to get jacked on a bunch of candy.

After a few more stops and some groceries later, I was home to clean the condo. I couldn’t believe it was already almost 5pm by the time I got home. I definitely did not anticipate my whole day running errands. I cleaned the condo quick, ate dinner, ran myself a hot bath and then curled up on the couch again for another chick flick. I have to say it was a pretty stellar evening.

I slept in! I can’t even believe I slept in! It was almost 10am when I woke up and it felt like it was 7. I definitely needed that and probably could have stayed in bed a few hours longer if I didn’t have another big to do list to get out of the way. It did take awhile before I got out of bed and made some breakfast. I finally decided that I would ignore my to do list for awhile and get out to enjoy the sunshine. A friend and I went to check out a local ball tournament before visiting her mom at work. Her mom is a makeup artist at Shoppers and was having a slow day so she randomly did my makeup.


It was way more dramatic than the camera caught, with bright blue on the bottom lash line. Definitely made me feel like I should have gone somewhere other than the car wash afterwards. Womp womp.

I eventually did end up going for dinner with my parents, who were in town for a concert. Then Liam was home and in bed leaving me to wash off the pretty makeup and finally put myself to sleep.

I’m still missing a few things for Liam’s party (ok, all of the things) and still want to find him an epic birthday gift (I ordered him a new toy box, not that exciting), I still have some cooking for the week to accomplish and a lot of sleep to catch up on, but all in all I had a pretty fantastic weekend.

What was the highlight of your weekend?

    I have not seen any of that birthday stuff around! Weird since it seems to be a very popular show.
    Have you checked Kids In Harmony for a gift? I love their stuff and almost always go there for kids gifts now.

      Yeah I found a ton of stuff at PartyCity.ca so I will probably just order it all. Just wish I could find it locally. Oh well.

      I’ll post the tank tomorrow!

    I couldn’t find Bubble Guppies stuff ANYWHERE either when I was going to do a birthday party but there’s lots on Etsy (for cheap) if you can get it here in time. xx

    Your make up looks great! I had the same issue finding stuff for Audrey’s first birthday. I should probably start thinking of themes for their birthdays now so I have lots of time to look for stuff. I am in denial that they are getting older though!
