Hello! It’s Monday Monday Monday! Which means the weekend is over, which also means I’m back from my trip to see my wonderful friend Megan.
It was a super quick little trip … I spent many long hours on Friday and Sunday in my car … but it was great! I really enjoyed being able to catch up with my best friend from college (sometimes texts/phone calls/Skype just don’t cut it, ya know).
The highlights (in which I actually list everything I did over the course of the weekend because the whole trip rocked):
We danced our butts off Friday night. Seriously, right off. I woke up with sore shins Saturday morning, nothing a good bout of stretching couldn’t fix … but I may have developed a new dance move to cause that. I bet I looked like her though, regardless of the move:
After getting very little sleep Friday night, Megs and I jumped in the car with her roommate and headed off to Moose Jaw on Saturday morning.
I told you I’m Canadian. We have cities with strange names like Moose Jaw.
Anyway, we checked out the Temple Gardens Mineral Spa, which was incredibly cool. According to the website, the mineral pool has some health benefits:
“The warmth of the water combined with a rich cocktail of essential elements sooth and replenish the body. High concentrations of Epsom and Glauber’s salts, along with Silicon, Potassium and Magnesium provide many health-boosting benefits which relax muscles, ease joint pain, replenish cellular composition, rejuvenate and re-hydrate the skin, and help to detoxify the body’s lymphatic system.”
Since I had planned to spend a lot of my weekend in a car, I hit the gym quite hard Friday morning. Hence … I was a tad sore. The pool helped! It was fantastic. I was really enjoying myself …
… until they told us to get out because of a health and safety concern (rumor around the dressing room is the jets had stopped working, so the water wasn’t circulating – icky). So we didn’t get to swim as long as we wanted to. But I enjoyed the time we did spend there. If you are ever in Canada, and happen to be in Saskatchewan (and I would ask you WHY that is!), then check that place out.
The rest of Saturday flew by with heavy amounts of chatting, gelato eating, and movie watching.
Then? Sushi time. It was ahhhhhmazing.
AND I FORGOT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF MY PLATE. I also forgot to take pictures all freaking weekend. I was distracted by all the visiting that was happening. I’m a terrible blogger. All I can tell you is that I went to Enso Sushi in Regina and my life is now better for it.
After we rolled out of the restaurant (after eating all of that food that you will never see documented on the blog), we hit up the theatre to see This Means War.
The verdict? Not a great movie. Not a horrible movie, either. I probably won’t buy it. But I would watch it if it’s on TV.
The best part? The beautiful faces. I always knew I liked Chris Pine … but never have I realized how much I like Chris Pine.
So that pretty much sums up the weekend. I mean, I left a lot of stories out of this post … but I didn’t want to bore you. I had a wonderful time, and loved being able to hang out with Megan in the city she calls home. It was also my first time to Regina!
Oh! I did photograph one thing, so I should share. Megs was pretty proud of the breakfast she whipped up yesterday, and said it was deserving of a picture (she also said since I am Yellow Haired Girl, she should be referred to as Brown Haired Girl).
So tell me – how was YOUR weekend?! Have you seen This Means War? What was the last meal you cooked that was definitely worthy of photography?
