Move over, shake weight!
THIS sucker kicks some serious shake weight ass! (That is, I assume. I've never used the shake weight. But I'm pretty sure this wins).
|Be afraid. Of my no-makeup look.|
This 2-person Auger was, in one word, the best workout I've ever got. It shakes the hell out of you and if you don't give it all your strength and power, it will kick, and throw you on to the neighbour's lawn. (True story. This happened before.)
I went to visit my grandma who was in the hospital, and this is when we did some yard work for her, since she isn't able to. Lots of thoughts and prayers to her, if you can spare them!
It felt great to do something good for the people who do so much for me! We were putting in a railing at the front steps of the house. It was supposed to take about 3 hours. It took 6. And we're no way close to being done.
I did, however, demolish an entire garden and get myself even more of a killer workout. It felt like Landscape Bootcamp!
|Get to work, Carter.|
The next 2 days were filled with Thanksgiving Amazingness. And lots o' cupcakes.
|My zucchinis! Roasted zucchini with Greek Yogurt, Buttermilk (this is NOT bad for you! Au Contraire, my friends!), and a dash of olive oil for the dressing, topped with thyme, rosemary, and pomegranate seeds!|
|I am the only person in life that likes Turnip.|
|Stuffing... which surprisingly, I didn't stuff myself with.|
|For my vegetarian friends.|
|...also, for my vegetarian friends.|
|Roasted broccoli and cauliflower! The secret ingredient: a brick of cheese.|
|Oh, Canada! I love you.|
This is how I felt before:
And this is after.
The weekend wasn't over. I checked in my domestic goddess-ness and made up some cupcakes!
|Double Chocolate with Blackberry Candy Corn!|
|This is for all of you Candy Corn lovers- you're all whack. (Lemon Cupcakes with Buttercream Icing)|
|This was to prove that I actually made them... though, this doesn't prove it at all. I just look awkward.|
And these were my Mom's cupcakes.
|Thanks for upstaging me, Mom.|
|Don't judge me.|
having zero willpower a weekend of enjoying food and drink, we decided to go for a walk to enjoy the gorgeous weather!
|Imagine how creepy it looks to see the lone weirdo hiding in the bushes, taking photos of strangers.|
|I was really excited about this photo. Great sunlight, fall colours, hot guy in front of me. Look closely, and you'll see two people making out on the bench. Now, I'm officially the creepiest.|
Carter and I walked up to the main street and went into Chapters to snoop around for potential new
trashy magazines educational novels.
My husband passed me this great read.
|We have a good marriage.|
I'm thankful for so much in my life: health, happiness, family, friends, my blog peeps... and belt loops.
What are YOU thankful for?
Have you tried the Shake Weight? Do you dig it?
