After a couple pretty bland weekends, I finally got up to some fun!
I can barely remember back to Friday night. Liam and I hung out until bed time where I proceeded to watch the week’s episode of Scandal (so sad it’s done until February now) and the first episode of Garfunkel and Oates, thanks to Ange for sending me this video.
Liam slept in until almost 7:30 which meant that we didn’t have time to laze around before swimming lessons. Getting out the door was a party since Liam decided he didn’t want to go and I had to pin him down to get him dressed and then football carried him out of the house kicking and screaming. I really wished my coffee was spiked with Baileys that morning.
I was very thankful for the substitute instructor Liam had who just grabbed him and carried him off when he didn’t want to go with her. He did fine after that. When he was done swimming, he went to his dads (we both go to swimming lessons) and I made a quick grocery shopping trip, threw some laundry in, packed an overnight bag and headed down the highway to Calgary.
I did a bit of shopping in the city, including a stop at the new Blame Betty location. I really didn’t need anything (do I ever), but the prettiest lace dress came home with me for my upcoming Christmas party. I need to get it hemmed though since it falls right at my knees and makes me look like a midget.
Don’t mind the resting bitch face.
The rest of the evening was spent with Ange (and Merlin). She was hosting a Stella & Dot party and I was mostly enticed by socializing and wine. I met a couple other bloggers I have interacted with for a while, Crystal and Leana which was great. Plus there was enough snacks to feed an army and plenty of wine.
Ange and I were up until after midnight chatting, which is past both of our bedtimes.
We were up early, caffeinated and off for spin class. It felt really good to get such a great workout done so early. Sunday’s are the best for that. We went back to Ange’s condo for more coffee and much needed showers.
I had plans to meet some family for brunch so I had to head off. I met up with my dad, grandma and uncle at Boxwood Cafe. It was an amazing little farm to plate restaurant downtown and I highly recommend going.
By this point I was fading fast from a late night and hardcore workout. The drive home seemed daunting but I made it and picked up Liam around 4. We spent the evening hanging out before bed. He wouldn’t let me make supper since he wasn’t hungry and just wanted to play. Fine by me, I was too lazy to cook anyways.
Once he was tucked in bed, I threw together a quick pita pizza for one and did a bit of prep for lunches this week before tucking myself in to bed early with some tea and my book. You know it was a good weekend when you come home exhausted!
