This is what I have been saying to myself since Thursday. It really truly was a holiday weekend full of indulgences (of the solid & liquid variety), relaxation, sun, great friends & lots of laughter. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the Canada Day long weekend 🙂
*Amazing pizza + beer at Terroni (not to mention my beautiful company!) The pizza was made with gorgonzola, prosciutto, pear, walnuts + drizzled with honey. Heaven.
*A day hanging out with my mama, including Mike’s Hard Black Cherry Lemonade + spinach salmon salad on the Remy’s rooftop patio. Ugh I love summer!
*Two days spent at a beautiful cottage where there literally wasn’t an ounce of stress in sight. Ahhh. THANK YOU, Jason!
*A holiday bbq to finish off the weekend right!
I absolutely LOVE loosey-goosey weekends like this with fluid plans and a ton of hanging out & enjoying the company of best friends. Ahh sigh. This weekend wouldn’t be approved by my “healthy” self, however, as I became very close friends with many bags of potato chips. The weekend was full of beer, wine, potato chips, cupcakes, roasted marshmallows, ice cream and burgers. I’m happy to say that “greens” of some variety did make an appearance, though, as I made sure to bring up salad to the cottage + pack some healthy items (as did the rest of our gang)! My whole philosophy on these kinds of weekends is that you HAVE to absolutely enjoy all the delicious treats and know that you’ll be on track and back to normal as soon as the holiday is over. There’s no use in stressing out or worrying or even denying yourself the foods and treats you love most .. you only live once!
I hope your weekend was relaxing and enjoyable!
