My cousin Alyse announced she was pregnant a few months ago. It will be the first baby (grandchild? great-grandchild?) on the Hansen side of my family. Last weekend she hosted a gender reveal party, and I dressed in pink.
Looks like it will be a baby girl! Congrats to Alyse and Alex, we can't wait to meet her :)
You've seen this walk many times on my blog... a tour around Parliament! Since the weather is becoming bearable,
Matt and I have been getting out for more walks. Hope you've also been enjoying the nice weather!
I love ice cream. My obsession is very real, any time of day or time of year, I am game for ice cream. Years ago I discovered a brand called Halo Top, but at the time was only available in the States. It's a healthier version of ice cream with only 80-100 calories a serving, compared to 380 for the same serving size of Haagen Dazs. While I don't count calories, or mind treating myself, it's nice to have a healthier alternative - especially when you eat it as often as I do...
You can imagine my excitement when I heard it was coming to Canada!! Since it arrived, only a few weeks ago, I've has the hardest time locating any. All the stores downtown have been sold out. I finally found a tub of choco mint at the Metro in the Glebe and verdict is.... It's so good! I can't wait to get my hands on more flavours.
Above left you can see the grocery store I went to. And above right is a photo my friend sent me from another store (not downtown) - it's fully stocked and on sale! Very excited to have this healthier sweet treat, especially for summer :)
Homemade Matcha and Sacred Powers!
Matt and I went to David's tea last week and he picked out some matcha (ground up green tea leaves). Neither of us realized how much I actually liked it - oops. And Sacred Powers is a book I've recently been reading about mindfulness. Some parts are a little hippy for me but, for the most part I am really enjoying it and taking a lot away from it :)
Leah was puppy sitting her friend's whippet puppy, Saoirse (sur-sha). I went over to hang out with them for a few days.
She's so cute! She can be a bit of a trouble maker but for the most part, she's very well behaved.
It may be a while but, I'll get my own little whippet eventually...
Leah's friend Erin got a whippet! We went over to see her and she's so cute and so little. The photos don't do her justice!
Looking at the photos again... I really want one! Haha, one day ;)
We had snow; beautiful, white, fluffy, snow. And then it rained, and now we have snow no mo' ...
It is only November so I am fine with no snow but when December hits (in 2 days) I say bring on the snow!
A little bit of this and that from the past few days - mostly just a bunch of coffee and food.
- When Matt and I don't feel like a standard lunch, we usually go for a cheese and cracker board
- The garlicky kale with crispy chickpeas ended up being a little spicy but super delicious
- Current favourite song is Snowman by Sia, just a little Christmasy
Have a great weekend!
