Pedicures, Baby Showers and Road Trips

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! I know I am.

So far the weekend has been super busy. Friday started with another green smoothie. This time I added some Amazing Grass green superfood. I love the extra greens in the morning.

It was beautiful on Friday so Matt and I decided to heat up the BBQ and make ground chicken burgers.

We paired it with some mini potatoes (garlic powder, onion salt, thyme, rosemary and basil).

May 002

Mine had a little cheese and some organic spinach.

May 004

Matt added some hot peppers, onion and a little light mayo to his.

Saturday I got up and decided to go for a quick pedicure before my busy day started. While there I decided to do something totally different and got blue toes!

Who would have ever thought? Ahhh…well…it was something different and I like them!

I am not pictureless for a while. For some reason I forgot to put my camera in my bag. Crap!

That afternoon was Angie’s baby shower. To throw Angie off the trail Lynn and I met her at the Public Gardens downtown first. We walked around a little then headed for some ice-cream. We sat around and chatted for about an hour. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the girls and it was great to catch up. It was also great to see Angie’s belly! She looks so cute!

Afterwards we headed over to Tash’s for the surprise baby shower. There we met up with Jaime, Leslie, Lex, Cat, Jen, and Marie along with a few other of Angie’s friends. It was a great time and I think we able to surprise Angie.

During the baby shower I snacked on some cheese, a cupcake and the most amazing looking cake. I so wish I had brought my camera with me to the shower. It was a great time and it was nice to meet some other bloggers from around the country.

After the shower I had to head home to pick up Matt since we were meeting a few friends for dinner at Moxie’s. Matt and I started with the Avocado Spring Rolls and for dinner I had the Seafood Linguine. It was great company and great food. I’d definitely go back again.

Sunday Matt and I decided to head to Mahone Bay for a road trip. I love day trips and it was beautiful, plus 23 and sunny out.

Here are a few pics from the trip:

The Green Canteen – just outside of Mahone Bay and one of my favourite places to eat when I was a kid.

We grabbed lunch at a pub in Mahone Bay. I got the beef dip with sweet potato fries. Then a banana ice-cream for desert.  It was yummy but way too much food. I was so stuffed afterwards. By the time we got home I wasn’t feeling so good. Between dinner the night before and lunch on Sunday I was feeling a little sick. I knew something healthy was in order for dinner.

We got home around 4 and I curled up on the coach and read the Sookie Stackhouse novel for a couple of hours before dinner. On tonight’s menu was:

Scallop Skewers and Potatoes.

On the skewers: Organic baby tomatoes, red onion, red pepper, yellow pepper and scallops.

All ready to be BBQ’d…

May 003

Matt had just headed out to turn on the BBQ when he remembered we were out of propane. So off we went to pick up propane before we could cook dinner. By the time we got back and cooked dinner it was after 8. It ended up being a late dinner but that was ok. Our lunch was huge and I still wasn’t very hungry.

Served together…

May 008

I only ended up eating about 1/2 the potatoes but supper was yummy, healthy and delicious. It felt good to eat healthy again after two large meals of eating out.

I didn’t want this post to be too long so I’ll post again tonight with an update from today. I hope your all enjoying your last day of the long weekend!
