Weekly Wrap-Up.

After the crazyness that was last week, we had a wonderful and relaxing Easter weekend -- I even managed to get 3 days off!! While I had a day off on Friday, which I honestly don't remember what we did because I was so beyond exhausted from Thursday, I did have to go to work on Saturday. Work on Saturday was very busy and I had a lot to cram into 9 hours. Thankfully I had Sunday and Monday off as well. 

The weather here has been absolutely beautiful and warm.. like wear my shorts, t-shirt and sandals warm! Yesterday and today we made a point to get outside and enjoy this weather. I may even have a slight burn on my forehead. My mom had us over for Easter dinner on Sunday - yum, yum, yum! She made the most delicious roast beef, roast potatoes and yorkshire pudding! 

Favorite Snapshots:
+ Beautiful sunshine and warm weather here in Vancouver, BC.
+ Added a new houseplant to our current collection.
+ The Easter bunny found his way into our apartment. I love Easter chocolate.
+ The Easter bunny also brought us some beautiful outdoor plants.

Life Lately:
+ Work, work work ... I am pretty boring right now. I will be working every single day in April, no days off (besides today, Monday, April 1st).
+ Started drinking lactose free milk because I had a sneaking suspicion that I was lactose intolerant. What a difference! Goodbye stomach ache!
+ We have been slacking with the exercise, but I am hopeful that we will do better in April. Baby steps. On the bright side, I have lost a few pounds and am down to 129! I would like to be 115 by the end of June.

Recipes I want to try:
+ 13 Weight Watchers Breakfast Ideas by The Cards We Drew.
+ White Wedding Cupcakes by Design Eat Repeat.
+ Pasta Salad with Smoked Paprika and Bacon by By Wilma.
+ Chicken Bowtie Alfredo by Jessica Who.
+ Slow Cooker Honey Ribs by Six Sisters' Stuff.

Weekly Dinner Menu:
+ Monday: Leftovers - Goulash & pasta.
+ Tuesday: Clubhouse sandwich & salad.
+ Wednesday: Sushi.
+ Thursday: BBQ ribs, fries & salad.
+ Friday: Kraft dinner & salad.
+ Saturday: Chicken, potatoes & salad.
+ Sunday: Roast beef, roast potatoes & yorkshire pudding.

Well, that was my week in a nutshell. How was yours? 
I hope everyone had a Happy Easter!
