It was family day long weekend here in Alberta. It was so nice to have Joe home an extra day! The kids absolutely love it. We didn’t really do anything too exciting. But, we did go to two of my favourite places. Costco on Saturday and IKEA on Sunday! I should have done a Costco haul because I love being a sticky beak and seeing what other people get but it was slightly disappointing this time around. When we go we usually get chicken and minced beef and some frozen things. I love the black bean burger patties and chicken and veggie wonton the best! I also like to get frozen fruit from there to make smoothies and smoothie bowls. And I always get my coconut oil from there. It’s HUGE. I have my eye on the cubby house too!
I always look forward to going to IKEA but without fail every single time we leave I’m annoyed I didn’t go alone because we end up forgetting about half the stuff I went for! It’s way too crazy to go with two kids under 3 and a boyfriend who just sees the exit sign ahead haha…Does this happen to anyone else who shops with their children and partner? Pretty much my only reason to go was to get some frames for some prints I bought for the kid’s rooms and new toy storage for the kids. Their toys were literally taking over our living room. It looks so nice and tidy now! So I guess the trip was quit successful. With a dairy queen stop on the way home.
I spent most of Monday meal planning and prepping for the week. I bought the Kayla Itsines 28 day healthy eating book for a christmas present to myself 😉 and I am only just getting around to having a good look through it now. So I made the Cajun chicken burgers for dinner, the raspberry and chia seed pudding for dessert and the white bean and tzatziki dips for snacks. SO GOOD!
Most of the weekend consisted of lazing around the house and watching a lot of friends on Netflix. We have started the series from season 1. It’s probably the 100th time I have watched friends from start to finished. But Joe hasn’t – crazy!
Also, I dropped my phone IN THE TOILET!! I am SO mad at myself. So I need to get a new one asap.
What did you do this weekend?
