Snapshot Sunday + Weekly Post Recap

Hi guys! I can’t believe it is Sunday again. Sunday has become even more of a bittersweet day for me. It already was because it is both a day off but also signals the end of the weekend. However, now it also means Game of Thrones and when that’s over, it’s almost time to go to bed and again, the weekend is over.

This past week breezed right by though. Before I knew it, it was Friday and it was the weekend again. I went to see Captain America: Civil War on Friday with my husband. I enjoyed it, however I don’t think it is my favourite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It really got me thinking that they really need to make a movie centred around Black Widow. She only ever has a guest role in the other Avengers’ movies but she really does have an interesting enough of a back-story to hold her own… Maybe someday! If you typically enjoy the Marvel Cinematic Universe then I think you will like Civil War. However, I would love for all the superhero vs. superhero themes to take a break for awhile.

Snapshot Sunday + Weekly Post Recap

Hi guys! This will be a quick one today but I do have a few eventful updates from the week.


Flowers from my husband!

On Monday, I went for dinner with one of my besties, and her adorable little boy. We went to Moxies and had a delicious dinner and did a lot of catching up!

On Tuesday, it was the 10th anniversary of my husband and I being a couple (not our wedding anniversary). We went out for a lovely dinner and then watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens when we got home! I don’t think I can ever see that movie enough times.

The rest of the week is kind of a blur, I don’t think I really did much else. I did buy tickets to see Gwen Stefani in the summer, so that is something to look forward to!

Other than that… if you missed any of this week’s posts you can find them here:

Snapshot Sunday + Weekly Post Recap

Hi guys! I think Spring is finally starting to arrive in Thunder Bay… it’s about time! After what feels like the longest winter ever, we have finally got some nice weather.

April 17-16.jpg

1. Took a quick pic after our walk on Friday! 2. Dex rocking his new haircut!

So, to celebrate, I walked around Boulevard Lake, not once this weekend, but twice! I went on Friday with two of my besties and then again today with my husband. It’s such a lovely walk and a great way to add some light exercise to your day! Continue reading

Snapshot Sunday + Weekly Post Recap

Hi guys! This past week hasn’t really been anything out of the ordinary. Just the usual work, come home, exercise, go to bed, repeat.

2016-04-10 09.58.32.jpg

The only picture I took this week… My silly pup Dex who desperately needs a haircut (and is getting one next weekend!)

One of the highlights was that the Sephora VIB sale is currently underway so I placed an order on Thursday… Can’t wait for it to arrive! I will of course, share my haul on the blog when it gets here! Continue reading

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!

April 3-16.jpg

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! Not much to report on today. It was a pretty uneventful week for the most part. Given that it is Easter weekend there is the usual family dinners.

At work it was my last week before I start my new position after the long weekend, yay! I’m really excited about that. I’m excited to learn new things and to continue to move forward with my career.

I went to see Batman v. Superman on Thursday. I didn’t have high expectations because it’s had some pretty bad reviews but I was optimistic. Unfortunately, it was pretty bad. The last 30 or so minutes were good though. I think Wonder Woman was one of the redeeming factors. I do think the next DC movies that this laid the groundwork for will be good though.

Other than that, I’ve been enjoying a quiet long weekend which has been filled with a lot of reading. I’ll have two books to talk about when I post my March Book Club this week! I’ve also been playing with my Kat Von D Tattoo Liner a lot more lately and have been obsessed with wearing winged eyeliner. I’ll have to do a tutorial on one or both of the looks I did with it this weekend! I posted one of them on my Instagram here.

Hi guys! Another week down and it feel like March is almost over. Didn’t it just begin? It it just me or has 2016 been going even faster than normal? I haven’t even really been that busy….

March 20-16.jpg

1. Yummy homemade nachos that my husband and I made this week 2. Look at all that snow!! 3. My dinner from ExCuria, it was delicious! 4. Enjoying the beautiful view of the Sleeping Giant

Okay so this week… I started off the week with 2 additional dogs as my family had gone to the states so I was on dog-sitting duty. It’s always fun to watch their two dogs interact with my two.

I was offered a developmental assignment at work and it was finally announced so now everyone knows so I can talk about it. I’m really excited about it! It is a really big step forward for me so I’m looking forward to it and am ready for the challenge. That starts after the Easter weekend! Continue reading

Hi guys! Where do the weekends go and how is it Sunday already?

This week I actually did quite a bit, shocking I know! On Tuesday I went to see “How to be Single” with one of my good friends. I enjoyed the movie and it was nice to catch up since we hadn’t seen each other in awhile.

On Thursday I went to yoga class after work which was amazing as usual and then I went out for dinner with another one of my good friends and her adorable baby boy! We went to Montana’s which was very yummy. It’s always so therapeutic chatting with a good friend! We did a lot of venting which was long overdue.


On Saturday we had really beautiful weather! Like… t-shirt weather which in Northwestern Ontario at this time of year is pretty unusual. My husband and I took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a walk around Boulevard Lake which I think is where half the city seemed to be! It was a great afternoon. Continue reading

Snapshot Sunday + Weekly Post Recap

Hi guys! Another week has flown right by. The husband and I were both back to work this week so it was pretty uneventful. I actually had a much better week at work than I anticipated though which was good. It’s never fun going back after being off but the rest of the week made up for it.

Feb 28-16

1. Max knows how to play up the puppy dog eyes! 2. My yummy dinner from the Prospector. 3. Dex in his signature pose… on his back with his tongue hanging out the side of his mouth.

I didn’t really do much in the evening throughout the week. Just the usual… working on the blog, playing video games and working out! I’ve managed to maintain a pretty good workout routine at home which is nice. I did make it to one yoga class this week which was fantastic! Continue reading
