My, what a crazy week this has been! It started off last weekend with an insane going away party for my best friend and a quick trip to Banff to celebrate Maja's 21st birthday! As much fun as I had, I was exhausted at work on Monday morning and was looking forward to spending a weekend to myself. (Ha! That will never happen) Moving forward in the week I said a final goodbye to Lauren with our classic tradition of poutine at the Big Cheese on 17th avenue in Calgary and started my night course. Management Studies. Yes, it is JUST as exciting as it sounds (which is not at all). On the bright side, the weekend came and it was much more relaxing than the last. I got to jam with my sister on my guitar Friday night, spent the day at a photography workshop on Saturday (pictures to follow) and had dinner with my Mom for mother's day.
Today (Sunday) marks the beginning of healthy living. Now that Lauren is in a different country I might be able to cut out all the beer and poutine ahah. I woke up early to get a start on the day, took my camera out, went for a walk and baked cookies for my coworkers. If anyone has any suggestions for easy quinoa recipes please send them my way!
Manicure of the week: I wish my photography skills could do this manicure justice. It's basically a french manicure but with a gold-grey polish and sparkles on the tips instead of white.
Song of the week: A Little Bit Stronger - Leighton Meester (Yes I know this is by Sarah Evans but I like this version much better)
Some photos using the skills I learned this weekend:
My baking adventure! These cookies are a staple in my household. Sour cream softies!!
I hope all you Calgarians enjoyed the weather this weekend as much as I did. The one thing I've gotta say about Calgary is the weather sucks most of the time but when it's nice out...it is beautiful!
