I kicked off an extra long weekend with a day off on Friday. I needed an extra day to get caught up on house work and get a jump-start on preparations for a party we were hosting on Sunday. I also spent some time at the mall and finally put a dent in those gift cards.
After trying on just about every pair of jeans in the entire mall, I finally splurged on these babies when I slid them on and had a total jeangasm. My first ever $100 jeans and soooo worth it.
Saturday morning, of course, was the 30K run in arctic hell.
That night lilmeg and I along with some of our other wacky friends successfully pulled off the surprise of the century for our friend’s 35th Birthday before she headed to Cozumel. There was screaming, there were tears, there were margaritas. It was epic.
On Sunday I passed up the rare opportunity to sleep-in in favour of hitting the gym and heading out to snap some photos of my training group on their long run. Coach likes to put together an enormous slide show at the end of clinic, so I was happy to chip in and snap some pics.
Don’t they look happy to see me??
Tim Horton’s was required…
And finally, Sunday evening was our main event for the long weekend – hubs and I hosted a “Winterrific Warm-Up” get-together. We spent the afternoon and evening hanging out with our family and friends, beating the February blues with lots of good food, wine and laughs.
This is my awesome family. ❤

We were lucky to have Monday off (Family Day) for some down-time after a busy weekend.
How was your weekend? I don’t know about you, but I could really use an extra day (or two) off every week…
