On Friday I went to visit my girlfriend and her new baby boy, Lukas (see a pic of us here at her baby shower back in March). What a sweetheart! Although I’m not ready for a baby quite yet, I love holding, feeding and fawning over them. They are so little for such a short period of time, it’s really special to meet them brand new.
On Saturday morning…
Marco and I hit the gym but ended up working out separately since our workouts didn’t line up (he was doing shoulders and I was on arms). Afterwards we got shakes–ugh, I could seriously drink this Funky Monkey concoction everyday (banana, chocolate protein, natural peanut butter & milk).
I wanted to get a little shopping in on Saturday afternoon so I went to Chuck’s Deli first, to fuel up. This is another spot I absolutely love–they make the best paninis! I always get the bacon-chicken on multi-grain and the lentil salad.
It’s just a small convenience store with a dry-cleaner and a deli but the food is so freaking good. They even have a large dessert fridge with the most delicious looking cakes and pastries (there was even a GF cheesecake on the weekend!).
I spent a few hours poking around Bed, Bath & Beyond, Marshalls and Winners but left empty handed from all #wompwomp
At Marshalls (Trainyards location, for my local Ottawa ladies) I was shocked to see this Givenchy Antigona! This is a newer style with the black and white–they had it at Luisa Via Roma when I was in Italy.
On Saturday night we went to Salt for dinner (remember my disappointing breakfast experience? Redeemed!) for a friend’s birthday with about 15 of our friends. The food was superb and the birthday girl was surprised–a win win!
We totally overslept on Sunday after a super late night out so this was more like pancakes for lunch, ha! After eating and getting dressed for the gym we decided we were too tired (read: hungover) for that business so we just stayed home and relaxed instead.
We decided to venture out for Vietnamese food for a late dinner–no complaints here, I could eat this everyday. Also, totally need to get some groceries.
And capturing the most beautiful sunset on Sunday night.
Hope you had a great weekend!
Here’s hoping for warm weather, fun with friends and new shoes (maybe?) this week. Happy June 1st!
