Friday Favorites: Starting the Weekend Early

Happy Friday!!

This weekend is a nice, extra long weekend for me 🙂 YAY for an extra day off!!

Here is a little glimpse at my day and some of my favorite things that I did on my Friday off.

Guess who is training for a half marathon?! It’s happening in just under a month. So… I’ve been doing some practice half marathons around my neighborhood. And by some, I mean two. This is my second one. It think my legs are slowing starting to catch on to this long distance running thing.

What is a day off without a treat! After my run I stopped for a coffee and then headed over to the library to renew my library card. Turns out library cards are now free! YES! Books, books, and more books!!

And last but not least, a trip to Costco. You are looking at a brand new Costco member!!

Well. If you’re trying to find me, I’ll be reading my library books and enjoying my first purchase as a Costco member!

Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving

sweetnsimpleblogHope all you other Canadians out there are having a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

My family had our Thanksgiving celebration yesterday, that way we get an extra day of rest to digest all that yummy food before heading back to work 🙂

This year we started off our Thanksgiving celebration with a looong walk so we were extra hungry when it was time for the feast!

We all had our fair share of turkey, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes, and of course we got some veggies in too!!!

Here is a sneak peek into our Thanksgiving celebrations!

This sweet potatoe casserole is probably one of my favorites! It is basically like dessert but you can get away with eating it for dinner 🙂

And to finish the meal off, apple crisp!!! The apples, buttery topping and that touch of cinnamon made it the perfect autumn desert, and perfect way to end off our Thanksgiving meal. YUM!!!

I’m a little sad that Thanksgiving is over… is it ok to start preparing/celebrating Christmas yet??
