I hope you guys are having a great weekend so far! Things have been busy but fun around these parts. The highlight of Friday night was going to see Seinfeld live at the Jubilee – I loved the show when it was on, so being able to see him live was pretty great. Saturday started bright and early with a morning trip to the farmers market, followed by an afternoon chatting away with a fellow Edmontonian blogger, Christina @ Pinch of Healthy. The market ended up being a lot better than I remembered, and I came home with some apples, sweet carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, flavoured honey, and chicken breasts that I won’t assault your eyes with. And the blogger meet up? Gah! Why do bloggers have to be such wonderful people? We spent hours talking, and I’m seriously looking forward to seeing her again. After that, I spent some time in the kitchen [with Mom], working on a [savoury] recipe that I’ll be sharing with you guys tomorrow.
Until then, I hope you have a great day. I’m not entirely sure what’s in store for me, but I know that church, a trip to the mall, and dinner with the family are on the agenda. Happy Sunday, friends!
