{weekend recap}

Happy Tuesday everyone! Love that it's a four day week, but not that I had to leave my family already :( I was a bad blogger this weekend and barely took any pictures!

Friday was spent travelling to my home town in Ontario. I arrived around 6pm and went out for dinner with my mom and brother. Nothing too exciting, but travelling always tires me out!

Saturday morning my mom and I were up bright and early and headed down to the States as it's 2 hours away to do some shopping. We both definitely got our fix at Target! I didn't buy as much as as I thought I would, but still came home with a bunch of good finds :) The line up at the border was awesome both way, maybe 10-20 minute wait. We thought it was going to be crazy busy because of the dollar and the long weekend. On the way home, we made a pit stop to see good friends and her baby that I had yet to meet. He was such a sweetheart and I wanted to steal him! Later that night, I met up with a friend that I've known since kindergarten and caught up over drinks. It was nice to see her and catch up on our lives.

Sunday I was up early to get my 12k run in before the business of the day. We had brunch at my mom's house and then went for a walk around my mom's small town as it was a gorgeous day out!

After the walk, I headed over to my dad's house to have dinner with him and other family members. It was nice being able to see everyone as I hadn't seen them since the wedding.

Monday was spent just hanging out with my mom as I had to head to the airport later in the afternoon. The weekend went by wayy too fast and I wish it could have lasted longer. I miss being home :(

How was your Easter weekend? What were you up to?


  1. HOOOORAY for Wellesley!!! lol ;)

    I hope that you flew into Kitchener airport? Everytime I have went to Calgary I flew in and out of Kitchener... I don't think I will ever do Toronto again!

    I had a pretty decent weekend... got a lot done around the house... even got in a little car accident! lol

  2. Fun! I want to hear all about your Target finds! :)

  3. Looks like a nice, relaxing family weekend!! Good job for fitting in that run too! I haven't been to Target in almost a week, and I'm having withdrawals, haha.

  4. Aw I bet you miss being home. I miss it too! But look at all the fun family time you got!!

    Also, I think we should head for a shopping trip in the states from here! It's just a bit longer of a drive but wouldn't that be fun?

  5. looks like a great weekend! i love target, or the bulls eye boutique as i lovingly call it ;) and props to you for getting up early to run a 12K!!

  6. Aw, sounds like you had a great weekend. :)

  7. Glad you had a good weekend visiting your family! It always goes by too short but you can bet this short week is going to drag on!

    I can't wait for Tar-jay to come to Canada! Snaps to you for doing your run while on vacation!

  8. OH fun! Sounds like a great weekend! I love weekends at home, but they go way too fast.
