Lifestyle Personal Posts Scenes from my Week

scenes from my weekend.

homemade pasta | what became spaghetti alle vongole | kitty!
gearing up for st. patricks day | spring at kensington market

I would be lying if I told you that I accomplished anything productive this weekend. Apart from purchasing a bag of chia seeds (which had be on my to-do list for a while), it was slacker central in these here parts. But isn’t that what weekends are for?! I did manage to spend Friday cooking with my mom, sister and aunt (which is my favourite form of quality time); and while no green beer was ingested on Saturday (I know.) green shoes and regular coloured beers were present (success!) As for Sunday, when we finally arose from our slumber, Justin and I headed to Kensington Market with no real plans in sight. We found lunch, and chia seeds, and a fun little sidewalk garden but really just needed an excuse to be outside and enjoy the spring-like weather. I think it’s safe to say that this weekend was a success.

ps today marks one year since Justin and I officially moved in together. An apartmentaversary, if you will (it’s a thing!) This excites me.

Happy monday folks!

      And hot and sour soup is something of an accomplishment if you ask me! How did it turn out?

      I actually put them in greek yogurt usually. Now that I have my own stash, I’ll be sprinkling them liberally everywhere! (salads, oatmeal, cereal…)

      oh there will be vino involved!

      And being in San Fransisco you must get your fair share of delicious shellfish! I will forever be jealous of you for that!

      haha Sarah – you have perfect timing!
      I haven’t shown them yet only because it’s not yet complete. I KNOW! I hang my head in shame.

      I actually just got the urge to finish everything up and am working on a moodboard/brainstorming some ideas. It will happen – I promise!
