Hope everyone had a great weekend and are fully recovered if you indulged in some green beer!

Our weekend was fairly low key.  Friday was our day off from work so we had a date night at Tango on Thursday.  This is probably one of my favourite restaurants in the city.  Partly because I am SO indecisive and can never make up my mind on what I want to order. It is a tapas place so I get to have a little of ALL the items I want! One of our favourite items on the menu is the Pulled Pork Poutine.

Friday we woke up and discovered our fridge had quit working.  Well more accurately the freezer portion which I found out actually controls the temperature on the fridge side. I wasn't very happy since we have only lived in this house for just over 4 years and the appliances were all brand new.  However I was VERY thankful we have a chest freezer and a wine fridge and also that it was cold enough in the garage that all the fruits and veggies could sit out there. Luckily we were able to find a repair place that could come out on Saturday so we only lived without a fridge for a day.

Saturday was spent waiting for the repair man to come and for him to fix it. Apparently it is common problem with GE appliances and it was an easy fix without being too expensive. Then we headed out to a great little store in Okotoks Pure Jeanius.  The owner Carolyn and her staff are fantastic and I love going out there. It always ends up being an expensive trip so I definitely try to limit how many times we go there. Saturday night we stayed home and didn't participate in any St. Patrick's Day activities.  We watched My Week with Marilyn (I had already read the book).  Michelle Willaims does an excellent job of being Marilyn. We also watched The Switch which I know has been out for awhile but we had never got around to watching. 

Sunday I spent the day catching up on some things for the community association I volunteer for and getting ready for the week.

OH!! And we are two weeks into the Beachbody Insanity workout and are LOVING it!!!


  1. So glad you are loving Insanity, I too love it!! Darn fridges, ours did that in our old place. What a pain hey!

    1. Such a pain!!! I was glad that we could get it fixed so quickly

  2. What kind of stuff does Pure Jeanius have? I am guessing jeans, but not quite sure :)

    1. Yes! Mostly jeans but they also have lots of different tops and some really unique jewelry. The tops are are all really reasonably priced and she always has jeans on sale.
