Singing in the rain.....

I had such a great weekend.   I worked a day shift on Friday which rarely happens (I  usually work Friday nights)  After work, I went straight to the gym, Rob and I  were going to "The Chicken and Rib fest" later that evening so I wanted to burn some extra calories before I ate a lot of calories!  

Rib fest was packed there must have been at least two thousand people there!!    Some of the lines for the vendors were ridiculous but Rob and I were able to find one that wasn't too long.  Here's a picture of Rob while we were waiting to eat our delicious Ribs.  

It was both our first time going and it was interesting to observe: everyone would buy there takeout Ribs and find somewhere to sit whether it was a bench, stairs or sitting on the ground.  It was like a huge picnic minus the grass.   I always enjoy going new places with Rob he is so easygoing and we truly have fun on our adventures. 

I worked on the patio on  Saturday during the day the weather was amazing,  it didn't even feel like I was working because I was getting so much vitamin D!   At night I went  out with some friends downtown for drinks and dancing.   

Today was a lazy rainy day but I was able to drag myself out for a walk with Rob.  We went around 10pm since the rain had stopped.  However when we got outside it was spitting, which was no big deal I even thought it was romantic but half way through it started to pour,  so instead of looking like this.

We actually looked like this:

Weigh in tomorrow I'm not sure what to expect but I know this past week I have slowly started to make healthier choices.  

I made a yummy salad this weekend :  Red pepper, yellow pepper, baby cucumber and sun dried tomato feta cheese with a touch of raspberry salad dressing. 

I also cut up some veggies and fruit for the week and boiled some eggs so I have no excuse but to eat healthy!   It always feels good to be productive!  I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before but Rob and I are not very inventive in the kitchen but we are slowly trying...  

What is your favorite healthy meal to cook??


  1. The festival sounds like a lot of fun and I love the picture of the two of you in the rain! My favorite healthy meal is hard to pin down because it changes from time to time. Right now I like a chicken dish from the SparkPeople cookbook.

  2. Thanks Diane for the compliment :) I will check out the SparkPeople cookbook. I am always look for easy, quick and healthy meals!

  3. That salad looked so yummy! And you and Rob are so cute!

  4. Thanks Laura. Rob and I are a bunch of goofballs! haha
