First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mama’s out there, in particular my wonderful Mom! xo
I’m sad that I can’t be on the East Coast to spend the day with her! We’ll make up for lost time when I visit this summer.
Love you, Mom
PS- Nice mullet!
It’s an amazingly beautiful Mother’s Day here in Calgary, which in turn makes me overjoyed. Finally!!!
I was up at 6:30am, unable to sleep. I decided to get up and head into work to get a few things marked and accomplished. Before work = breakfast!
Almond Milk Latté w/ Cinnamon
I also thought it seemed like the perfect day to go to the Farmer’s Market. I was there early, so it wasn’t too busy and I was able to quickly grab a few things.
Apples, Peppers, Tomatoes, Strawberries, Mango
All organic, bigger, better, and cheaper than the grocery store!
OMG! Fiddleheads. I haven’t seen these in soooo long. They remind me of New Brunswick
So, of course I had to buy some.
The Farmer’s Market produce is so far superior and of better value.
Example: Two organic Gala Apples. One from market (L), the other from the Superstore (R).
Ginger Carrot Soup for me and some Pickled Beets for Adam. I’m not a huge fan of pickled anything, but he’s obsessed.
Brought some lunch home for the patio with Ad: beets (not pickled), quinoa salad with sweet potato/pepper/feta/lemon, and a chicken curry mini hot pie!

I picked up some flowers and shrubs yesterday in an attempt to liven up our desolate backyard. I definitely do NOT have a green thumb, and feel slightly incompetent when it comes to gardening, but it’s a desperate necessity right now. So, I slapped on the SPF 30 and spent a couple of hours trying to rectify our yard. I do enjoy it once I get going, but I guess I just become overwhelmed by everything due to lack of experience.
Slowly, but surely!
Well, if aesthetic appeal isn’t motivating enough…
Gardening can be a workout, too!
Well, I am off in search of a dress for my best friend’s upcoming bachelorette shenanigans in Montreal. Themed attire: bright solid dresses for all the girls, and the bride in white. Wish me luck!
Oh, and a very happy birthday to one of my Calgary besties, Kristen!
