Weekending: InFlight Fitness, Girl Time & Painting

Good morning, friends! It's been awhile since I've done a weekend recap (probably because my weekends usually aren't very exciting), so I thought it was time for one!

Friday ended up being a beautiful day, and Sully and I spent a good portion of it walking around the neighbourhood in search of dandelions. Seriously, walks are painfully slow when you stop to pick every single dandelion, but the sheer joy he gets when he spots the next one is totally worth it. These paths are also home to many, many dragonflies and he had so much fun saying "hi, dragon!" to them, haha!
I was exhausted come Friday evening and didn't accomplish much more than reading a bit of my book before crawling into bed.

Saturday I was out the door around 10 a.m. for an InFlight Fitness class that Ange had organized for the Blog Squad. Even though there were a few things I couldn't participate in during the class since I'm pregnant, it was a ton of fun and I will definitely be back when I'm not pregnant! Come back for my full re-cap of the class on Thursday!

After the class, Ange, Nicole and I went for lunch at Ace Coffee & Diner. I ordered the Grilled Cheese with fries (delicious!) and Nicole ordered the Chicken Sandwich and we shared (also delicious!). The atmosphere at this diner is really cute (total retro vibe going on), but I found the menu a bit pricey and a lot of the dishes had mushrooms in it which is a no-go for me. Luckily, my food was tasty, even if overpriced.

After lunch, I ran a few errands on my way home and then joined my boys for another big dandelion-hunting walk. Once Sully was in bed, Jim put on a horror movie (Cabin Fever), while I half-watched. My dreams are just too vivid during pregnancy to want to watch a horror movie right now!

Sunday, we had a bit of a lazy morning while also tidying up the house, and Jim prepared our bonus room for painting. We are also in the process of taping and then painting our master bathroom and bedroom, but decided to tackle the bonus room first since it's a much easier room to paint. We aren't doing anything drastic in it, just lightening it up a bit and getting rid of the rough builder beige paint on the walls. I headed out around 2 p.m. over to Leslie's house for a Lorna Jane Trunk Show. Obviously, I just went for the girl talk and snacks!

Once I got home, Jim had the bonus room painted and it was time to eat diner. We then taped off another wall for painting (seriously, painting never ends!), bathed Sully, played, and now we are relaxing on the couch.

This weekend went by WAY too fast and I'm sad it's over already. Here's hoping we at least get some nice weather this week!


What did you get up to this weekend?
