Hiii and happy Monday guys!
I am on my way back to Montreal this morning but was home in Ottawa this weekend and got to see so many of my favourite people. Ohhh to have a heart so full.
When I got home on Friday night, we headed out to see a good friend who’s moving to Japan for a few months (!!!) It was a bit of a reunion from our pre-university days and I soaked up every minute.
I am so fond of this human.
The only disappointment of the night was when I ordered a mojito called the Lava Lamp, and it didn’t end up looking anything like a Lava Lamp. False marketing, if you ask me. Ha! I’m totally kidding and it was delicious.
I headed home to catch up with my family on Saturday and do a bit of prep for our Sunday morning book club meeting. I really miss cooking with my mom so some afternoon kitchen time was such a treat.
Mojo is like “Jacklyn… this isn’t my good side”.
For dinner we had this delicious soup and bread. I consider steaming carbs one of life’s greatest pleasures.
And then it was time for some glow-in-the-dark mini putt (umm good concept or good concept?!) with two couple friends that we’ve been trying to arrange a triple date with forever. They are two of the world’s cutest pairs and I’m so glad we finally made it happen!
When Sunday rolled around it was book club and I was a bit too excited. I contributed this overnight cinnamon roll recipe to the spread, which is in one of my all-time favourite things to bake. I was totally intimidated by working with yeast the first time but I promise that this recipe is fool-proof!
This meeting was about Justin Trudeau’s book so we felt that he should make an appearance .
Love each of these hands so much <3
Afterwards, Josh and I settled in at one of our favourite coffee spots for some homework. I wrote about 1.5 sentences of my report in the hour we were there. You win some, you lose some.
I am starting to feel the Christmas spirit sneak up on me ever so slightly and sights like this aren’t hurting.
Does anyone know a name for this tree other than the “tiny red balls” tree? I love them!
I have a busy week ahead but am so ready for it.
Hope you had a weekend that made your heart and belly feel full.
Did you see anyone you hadn’t seen in awhile?
Are you getting into the Christmas spirit?
