Scenes from the weekend

I have a feeling this recap might be kind of lame as our weekend was quiet, but that's okay. Sometimes having a quiet weekend with no plans is nice!

[friday] neither of us felt like cooking, so we got some Vietnamese take out and hung out after Amelia went to bed. Pretty sure I fell asleep on the couch at 9pm! Party animals.

[saturday] Brian let me have a sleep in and once I got up, he made us pancakes for breakfast. Later that morning, I ran to check out the kids toy and clothing sale that was happening in our neighbourhood. It ended up being a bust as barely any people had signed up and it's usually packed and crazy. When I got back, we headed out to check out the harvest festival that our neighbourhood puts on. There was lots of people there and Amelia wasn't a fan of being able to see the blow up slide, and that there was a huge line up for it. It's tough being a toddler ;) She was getting grumpy, so we decided to head home. 

Haha we were playing in her room, and I covered her in blankets while in her crib. Then tucked her in with her stuffed animals

When Amelia went down for a nap, I cleaned my bathroom and then did a workout. We didn't do much after Amelia went to bed- starting watching Six Feet Under. Weird to see the actor from Dexter and Parenthood in it.

[sunday] in the morning, Brian went to get groceries so Amelia and I hung out while I cleaned and vacuumed the house. When Brian got back, I took Harley for a 5k run in the sunshine. When Amelia went down for her nap (she ended up sleeping for 2h40mins!), I had some lunch and then crawled into bed myself. Brian headed out for a bike ride with Justin around 3:30pm. Once Amelia was up from her nap, we went to the park for a quick play time before heading home to make delicious chicken pot pie for dinner. 

Tell me: how was your weekend?


  1. Mmmm chicken pot pie sounds amazing right now.

  2. Mmmm what Becky said! I just pinned a recipe for slow cooker chicken pot pie soup/stew that I cannot wait to make!

    Sounds like a great weekend - yay for super long naps!! Love that last photo of Amelia.

  3. Mmm, pot pie sounds so good! I haven't had that in ages since there's not really an easy way to make GF pot pie since it's tough to come by GF crusts that would work for it. But I did make a pot pie with dumplings for a topping instead of pie crust and that was good - I should track down that recipe and make it again this fall!

    My weekend was pretty jam-packed and not very relaxing but it was good to have a busier/more active weekend after many weekends of having to take it so easy!!

  4. We had a such a super low-key (and in a boring, not a laid-back relaxing way) weekend that I couldn't bear to write about it.
    Chicken pot pie sounds really good. I was just making a list of all the fall/winter meals I want to make and that's definitely going on the list!

  5. You can come over and have Amelia jump in our bounce house, it's so much fun!
