It feels like I blinked and a whole week was over!
Liam’s request after being picked up was to go to the park so we headed straight there and hung out for a good hour or so. It was a struggle to leave but my stomach was saying it was time. Give that kid a shovel & some sand and he would play for days, I’m sure.
Once Liam was in bed, I watched a few episodes of Gilmore Girls because I know how to party on a Friday night.
Liam woke me up around 6:30, but crawled into bed to chat and play for a bit so I didn’t have to get out of bed right away. We soaked up a morning together eating French toast and being silly before meeting some friends for coffee & snacks at the library. Once everyone was starting to get hungry for lunch, we parted ways. I dropped Liam off at his dad’s, grabbed a pita and hit the highway.
I’m planning to do a full post about this class later this week, so stay tuned. I’m happy to report that I did not die, which I was fully expecting. 😉
After our class, most of us headed out for dinner at Phoenix Grill. It was nice to sit and chat with everyone, sipping beer and chowing down on some delicious food. The restaurant looks pretty unassuming from the outside but it was quite nice inside and absolutely packed. We had fantastic service for a large group and my butternut squash ravioli was amazing.
We stayed for close to two hours chatting and having a great time. I ended up back at Brie’s for another hour chatting with her and Kaella before making the long drive back to Red Deer.
I was hoping to sleep until my alarm, but my body was awake by 7am. Thankfully, I wasn’t sore like I anticipated I would be after an intense workout. I had some coffee and breakfast and puttered around until it was time to meet Mary for our run.
I grabbed a latte on my way home and got to work doing a mad clean of the condo. I kind of wish I had been able to fit in an Ikea trip into my Calgary trip because I really want to reorganize Liam’s closet and need some storage bins, etc.
A couple hours of cleaning and reorganizing later, I was off to drop some things off to donate, run a few errands and get groceries. I was wiped when I finally made it home but managed to keep the momentum going and did some simple meal prep (chicken, sweet potatoes and roasted veggies) while watching more Gilmore Girls.
By the time the laundry was put away and the blog work was done (aka Sunday Runday and this post), I drew a nice hot bath and soaked while reading before bed. I’m definitely feeling prepared for the week but will be missing my mini man a heck of a lot so here’s hoping it will fly by as fast as last week!
What did you get up to this weekend?
