Snapshot Sunday + Weekly Post Recap

Hi guys! How is it Sunday again already? This week has been fairly eventful as I started my new position at work on Monday. I’ve been learning lots and have definitely been enjoying it!

Other than that, I didn’t really do that much during the week outside of work. I’ve been exercising quite a bit and trying even harder to stick to my routine.

On Monday, since it was a holiday I went for a walk around Boulevard Lake with one of my besties and her adorable pup, Winnie! It was a beautiful day for a walk and the snow was almost all gone (at that point…  its come back and left again twice since then). After that I had an Easter dinner at my parents house which was delicious as usual! Always look forward to my family dinners there!

1. Red Pepper Pasta and Short Rib Ragu from Big Lakes Pasta/Redhead and the Chef 2. The snow just seems to melt and then come back! 3. One of my besties surprised me with this Black Widow bobblehead from Funko Pop, he knows me well!

On Saturday, my husband and I went to the Spring Home & Garden Show and browsed around. I ended up taking home some homemade pasta and sauce from one of the vendors at the market there. I think I’m going to have to go to the market again next weekend and pick up more pasta, and possibly some perogies too! I already made the pasta and it was incredible. Both were purchased from Big Lakes Pasta but the sauce was made by Redhead and the Chef. Highly recommend both! Continue reading

Hi guys! Another week has come to an end. I feel like I keep saying this, but honestly I don’t know where the weeks go.

I didn’t really take any pictures this week. So, here is a picture of my dogs cuddling on Thanksgiving!

This week started off with a lovely Thanksgiving dinner with my family. It was delicious as usual! I love Thanksgiving, and Thanksgiving leftovers, I got to enjoy my mom’s stuffing and gravy all week. Yum!

I also had another lovely coffee date with one of my best friends and her adorable baby boy! I always enjoy catching up with them.

After the Thanksgiving-food driven week I had and now that I’m feeling better, I have been getting back into working out again. I had a little break from the gym when I was sick, but now I’m ready to get serious about it again.

My husband and I are still playing Diablo III with one of our best friends, so we had another epic gaming session last night. I will be really sad when we finish all that we can do on that game. It is great!

This afternoon I went for a nice walk with my mom around Boulevard Lake. The weather was fairly mild and we enjoyed some great conversation and exercise!

I hope you all had a great week!

Hi guys! Wow, did this week ever fly by because it appears to be Sunday again.

Aug 23-15

This week was my first week back at work after being on holidays for ten days. It’s always tough walking back through the door after being off, but once I was back it quickly felt like my holidays were an illusion.

This week I focused on getting back into a fitness routine. I managed to get to the gym three times this week, after not going for about a month (although I had been working out at home). I went to three classes at the gym, and while they were hard, I felt so great after. I’m planning on taking them again this week. I really find going straight from work increases my probability of going.

I also tried a new restaurant this week with my husband. After hearing glowing recommendations from a good friend, we went to Nook. It is a small Italian restaurant here in Thunder Bay. While their menu was small, it packed a serious punch. Homemade Italian cuisine is one of my weaknesses. I had their gnocchi dish which included peas and green beans, in a pesto sauce. The gnocchi was wonderful and reminded me of gnocchi I had in Rome. The pesto had a lemon flavour and was very tasty! I also tried some of their prosciutto pizza and it was to die for!

It was a bit chilly and gloomy this past week, but on Saturday the sun came out again. My husband and I took advantage of this and look a walk around Boulevard Lake. It was a nice quiet walk, as it wasn’t as busy there as I thought it would be. We are finishing off out weekend by watching some Netflix together and playing a video game together. Perfect end to a lovely weekend.

I hope everyone had a great week! Share your stories about your week below!
