{weekend recap}

How do weekends especially long weekends go by so quickly?! I guess that happens when you are having fun right? :)

To summarize this weekend in a few words, it would be: family, lots of eating, lacrosse and gorgeous weather. 

Friday night was spent at a CrossFit class and hanging out at home. The perfect combination :) On Saturday, it was a gorgeous morning, so Harley and I went for a run. It was pretty warm by 10am, so we ended up walking a lot, but it was still nice to get out. The rest of the afternoon was spent running around trying to find some parts for our vehicle. We took it in last week to the dealership and they wanted to charge us a crazy amount for work that Mr.D and his dad could do, so we had to track down the parts. Luckily, we were able to find everything and the boys did the work on Sunday morning MUCH cheaper than at the dealership. Around dinner, we headed out to watch Mr.D's cousins lacrosse game. They live in BC, but were in town for a tournament for the weekend, so we wanted to catch up with them.

The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out with Mr.D's family (his parent's came into town late on Saturday night after a minor car incident), watching many lacrosse games and eating yummy food. Two highlights for food for the weekend were eating at Craft and Belmont diner. Craft is a beer market, but has amazing food as well. The Belmont diner is a really small diner located in Marda Loop, which serves breakfast and dinner. Both restaurants had AMAZING food and are worth the price.

Now, it's back to work I go for four days. Fingers crossed that this short goes by quickly so it's the weekend again!

Tell me: how was your weekend? 


  1. The weather was awesome! Finally ;)
    We went hiking Friday, Saturday we went to a camp out/bday celebration about 20 mins outside of RD, Sunday was spent around home - worked out, shopped, then we went to Sylvan Lake for fireworks, and yesterday we went to my friend's sons 1st bday party at Gull Lake and then golfing. It was a fun weekend, but I am tired today, it will take me the next 3 days to recover!

  2. Sounds like a great weekend! Car troubles are no fun and I hate dealerships!! YAY for 4 day weeks! I will have to write those places down to try, Craft sounds right up J's alley!

  3. Sounds like an awesome weekend despite car trouble!

  4. Glad you had such a good weekend! Mine was great, lots of wedding errands and house cleaning as we have three house guests this week! We also spent some time in my mom's pool when the sun was shining on Sunday!

  5. Sounds like a great weekend! Long weekends always seem like they go by way too fast. This weekend actually went by pretty slow for me which NEVER happens to I'll take it!

  6. Belmont is one of my absolute favourite places for breakfast!!
    I have only been to Craft for drinks and appies but likes what we had there too. There are so many great restaurants in the city.
