So I am having a pretty great week so far, I’m in Ottawa spending time with my brother and sister in law! got to meet my nephew Rai- he’s so adorable!! and I’m getting to spend quality time with Kai which is always nice! I’ll post pics from my trip on next week’s My Life post, but let’s go back to last week. It was a super fun filled packed week of events, starting off with my appearance on CHCH Morning Live on Monday. Host Annette Hamm and I talked about Valentine’s beauty ideas as well as gifts. If you missed the segment, you can watch it here.
We got hit with some serious winter weather last week as well! We got about 10 cm’s of snow I think. It took forever to get home from work! Probably because I drove 40 km/hr all the way home haha. I did not care! I’d rather arrive late and in one piece.
So that was the bad part of the snow, but here’s the good. Freshly fallen snow is just so incredibly beautiful!!
Are you guys big into smoothie bowls? I just started having them recently but have never tried making one at home. I finally tried this week! Guys, it was sooo good. It had frozen strawberries, blueberries, half a banana, protein powder (Vega brand), almond milk and water. I don’t like to do too much almond milk otherwise it can taste too thick. This one was great, although I’d like to try it with a different protein powder.
Friday was girls night! I invited some of my cousins on my dad’s side over for pre drinks at my place. We love our little parties. We all hang out by the bar and have drinks and play music, it’s a fun time. I made some appys too.
For dinner we headed out to my new fav restaurant in Burlington- Beertown. The girls were making fun of me because if you knew me pre Derek you’d know I’d never touch beer. Hanging out with him has changed that. I still will only have it maybe every few months, but trust me that’s a vast improvement from before. I love the one paddle they make at Beertown- it has Erdinger, Kronenbourg, Cider and Fruli. If you’re a beer person, you’ll know from that how much of a beer person I am not lol.
I also had my fav, a burger with a lettuce bun, sweet potato fries and aioli dip!
Ok, so this was probably one of the most exciting parts of the week. I beat Derek at our Fitbit challenge!! Fitbit’s track how many steps you take in a day and then you can add friends on your fitbit app to do challenges. We usually do the work week challenge and I almost always lose to him because he’s on his feet for work all day long and I am not. I was so proud of my trophy. Guys if you’re looking for something to get you moving more, seriously look into the fitbit. This isn’t sponsored by them or anything, I just really love it!
Saturday night we went out for dinner with my cousins on my mom’s side for my cousin Preethi’s birthday. We headed over to Saucy’s in Mississauga. Great restaurant and great food! It was nice having good quality girl time, so necessary sometimes!
Here’s my cousin Preethi and Shishee. The restaurant did a little gelato birthday dessert for her.
That was the week! How was your guys week? Do any of you have fitbits or use another step tracker? Do you love it?
