These are my confessions V16

Link up with Leigh's confession's post........

I confess..... I am super excited for the next twilight movie! It comes out this week and I can't wait to see it.  The books and then movies were totally a guilty pleasure of mine.




Did you read the books? Watch the movie's?

Markets, soup and snow

How was every one's weekend?

We had a fairly quiet weekend and since it was three days I took advantage of catching up on my sleep.

Friday night I went out with a friend after supper for what was supposed to be one drink....... let's just say it ended up being a few more than one. I think it was close to 2am when I got home.

Saturday I was a little slow moving so I skipped my workout (in hindsight I should have just done it) and then we braved the cold and went out to the Millarville Christmas market.  It is one of my favourite things to go to and is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. After that we came home and watched movies.

Sunday/Monday we didn't really do much. I did some of my volunteer work and we made french onion soup (which was a huge job!).

How was your weekend?
Do you go workout after a late night and a few beverages? Does it make you feel better?

These are my confessions V15

Link up with Leigh's confession's post........

I confess.... that I am pretty sure I am 80 years old sometimes! I need to be asleep by 10pm at the latest during the week (so not exciting I know). Sometimes I am ready to go to bed even earlier!  We get up at 5:30am and going to sleep any later just doesn't work for me. I am not one of those people that can go on 5 hours a night - I can do that for one maybe two nights then that's it. I get so so cranky when I am tired.





If I don't get enough sleep

What about you? Lots of sleep? A little?

Poutine, 5 miles and sunshine

How was everyone's weekend? We headed out to the mountains with some friends for the Banff Winterstart 5 miler.  It's the kick-off to their winter festival and we had so much fun doing the run.  The run doesn't start until 7pm and they encourage you to wear anything that is reflective or has lights on it!

Friday first stop was Canmore for lunch at La Belle Patate


Poutine, smoked meat sandwich and a "steamie"

On the way out



Saturday we just relaxed and wandered around a bit.  The race was at 7pm so we didn't want to do too much.  Lunch was at an amazing vegetarian place called Nourish. We had nachos that I couldn't even begin to tell you what was all on them.  The menu claims there is 27 different items on it - everything from dill pickles to strawberries.


The race was so much fun even with the rain that started part way through! It was different racing at night especially since the majority of the course didn't have any lights but lots of people had headlamps and some people even had battery operated Christmas lights wrapped around them!
  
Sorry for the blurry picture! It was SO steamy where they had the after race "refreshments"

Sunday we came home and just hung out.  I am so happy that the sun was out this weekend (after almost 2 weeks of foggy weather)!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend :)
