Put your hand up if you’re suffering from Monday blues!
So here is a secret about me. I absolutely love what I do… so I actually don’t suffer too much from Monday blues. Yes, getting up in the mornings are tough and I look a bit more rough on Mondays because getting that extra 20 minutes of sleep is a better idea then putting on makeup but once I get into work… my day isn’t so bad.
This weekend, I feel like I did a whole lot but a whole lotta nothing at the same time.
Here it is, the breakdown list:
Head out of work at 4:30pm (who wants to stay for a full day at work on a Friday?)
I already know it’s going to be a good evening since I don’t have to make dinner.
I hop on the train, subway delay, subway delay then speed walk home since it’s so cold outside.
My daily at home routine, cooking or not consist of cleaning. How does my place get so messy within a span of a day? It’s a life mystery.
The Love comes home from work, we wait for his brother in law to come over and then we head out for some dinner.
I was really craving some Korean soups since I feel like it has been forever since I’ve had Korean food… and plus did I mention it was freezing cold out?
Dinner turned into a good night of drinking (I swear I don’t have a drinking problem) with traditional rice wine. If you haven’t had Korean rice wine, you’re missing out! It’s a white, a tad sparkling, semi-sweet, kinda sour, magical drink. *TIP add Sprite and you’ve got a party in your mouth!
From there, we all headed back to my place and just relaxed. Great conversation with some after dinner snacks (because dinner is never enough), Friday was a great start to the weekend. Of course, it’s not a party without me passing out on my couch before midnight, waking up at 4am in a haze.
Oh glories Saturday!
I got to sleep in which is always, always take advantage of. Even if I do wake up early, you’ll find me snuggled in bed with Tank and the Love, pretending to be sleeping… (usually strolling through social media under the sheets) just for the pure satisfaction of not having to leave the bed!
At around 10:30am I finally decided that it was only human of me to actually get out of bed and do normal human stuff.
I made some breakfast (I have finally mastered the perfect, fluffiest old fashion pancakes). Peameal bacon, eggs, pancakes with extra syrup on the side please!
What a great Saturday so far.
We were originally going to go snowboarding but it was a tad wet outside and I wasn’t too confident on my new snowboarding skills to hit the slippery slopes. We opted in for a nice walk/hike instead. It’s become a weekly traditional for us to bundle up, get Tank in his winter gear and head out.
It’s amazing what escaping the city for a couple of hours can do. Nature in the winter time is truly beautiful.
After the hike, we decided to head to Pacific Mall (for those outside GTA – it is a Chinese Mall that has everything and anything you can think of). We didn’t have anything specific we needed but wanted to just browse for the sake of it. We ended up trying on some glasses and grabbing some snacks – curry beef balls, fish balls, tripe and egg bread… yes… they all sound soo exotic but are honestly the most delicious thing ever!
Who doesn’t love strawberry flavored pocky sticks?
My Love knows the way to my heart and decided we do some more take out tonight for dinner (We only go out for dinner or take out once a week sometimes bi-weekly). What was really special about this dinner is that it was just a binge of some good, classic fast food (Taco Bell, Manchu Wok, and some non healthy Greek salad from Jimmy the Greek). Oh yahhh, my Love is one romantic man <3
Eat, eat, eat… happy happy happy!
We decided to stay in and just binge watch on some movies. 2.5 unsuccessful movies, horrible later, Saturday was over.
Oh Sunday, everyone has a love hate with you.
I woke up at around 7:30am thanks to Tank who was begging for food.
After feeding him, I ran back into bed, so soft and comfy but couldn’t go back to bed.
I lazied around for a bit then got up and did some chores around the house.. again… messy.
I made a kick ass frittata with everything and anything left in my fridge – kale, peas, peppers, onions, tomatoes and more!
The Love had to go to work so I decided to be a good house girlfriend and do some more house chores while watching Gilmore Girls and then started on Sunday dinner.
I made a pork roast with roasted tomatoes, salad and beans (aww mom look at me making a well rounded meal!).
After mowing down on the food, we were originally going to meet some friends but they didn’t get back to us till after 10pm… Seriously, who has time to go out at 10pm on a Sunday? I need my precious sleep.
Well you can guess how the rest of the evening goes – after dinner snacks, movies and cuddles.
*breathe* that was my weekend. A whole lotta stuff with a whole lotta nothing!
How was your weekend?
