Oh What a Night(s)

Hey there everybody! What a weekend! I have had a great few days off and I am very happy I took tomorrow off to!

My vacation was very productive. I already told you about my cleaning adventures and I am happy to report it was all good!

Friday night we hung out with Lynn and her hubby, Dean made an awesome stir-fry and we sat and talked and relaxed, had a few drinks and a great time!

Kitty even got in on the action!

Saturday I was a bit sleepy but had stuff to do anyway. I made a batch of my slow cooker chilli and cleaned house for another friend to come visit. All around busy fun! Today I was very productive, we made hummus for the first time ever.

SAM_0784I had it with my veggies for lunch. This is Cumin and Black pepper flavour, and I got the recipe from Betty Crocker. Dean wasn’t a huge fan but I love it! It made enough to last a bit too which is good. I don’t like mayo so for me I use hummus as a spread on wraps and sandwiches.  It was so simple this will be a recurring thing. I normally don’t care about packaged goods, but I get bored of the same thing, so I will experiment with different spices and see what happens.


SAM_0780 Also today I made Snickerdoodles. Basically they are cookies with cinnamon sugar on them. I thought I should get my Christmas baking started since I don’t have any other real time off before Christmas. However I would like to say that I am not in the Christmas sprit yet… at all!

Over all I had a great few days.

I have been putting alot of thought into joining WW again. I know there are some changes that are going to come around really soon and I am thinking that might be a good time for me to jump back on the band wagon. I did weigh in today and was down, but I still feel its very difficult for me to get in the right mindset to lose this weight. I haven't made up my mind yet, but that is one thought that is floating around in my head!

The other thing is I twisted my ankle over the weekend and have been hobbling around on it. It felt much better today and we went to the mall but after about an hour and a half it was getting swollen again and throbbing like mad! So limited exercise for me, which sucks because it was the one thing I was being pretty consistent with!

Hope everyone has a good Monday!


  1. Looks/sounds like you had a really nice weekend :)! Hope your ankle feels better soon.

  2. Fun times! Wish I was there with you guys!
