monday funday!

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m having a great Monday! I woke up to the sun shining and a surprising forecast that didn’t call for rain (for once)!

I wasn’t working today, and the husband works in the afternoon because he had somewhere to be this morning, and gladly invited me along :D!

In case you may not know, my husband is a golf pro – this means he works at a golf course (and a pretty nice one at that!), with a passion for teaching. This is his first year at a golf course where he actually gets some amazing perks – today was one of those perk days.

This morning my husband went for a club fitting at a golf course in Oakville, Ontario for new TaylorMade golf clubs. In hubby’s eyes: this is ahhhh-mazing.

In foodie’s eyes: it’s like getting a gift card with unlimited amount of funds on it to shop at Whole Foods. You get it now, don’t you 😉

From the moment we arrived, the husband was  like a little kid on Christmas morning. He was so happy. And I don’t know about you, but I get pure enjoyment out of him being that happy.

Just look at this face…

We actually arrived early (like a kid waking up early on Christmas – see the connections!), so he had time to hit some balls on the driving range.

I’m going to be brief with the writing and just show you the collection of photos from today instead.

Basically, I’m like the paparazzi. And I’m sorry if this may bore you because honestly, golfing isn’t something I partake in normally, but this was pretty cool. Just amuse me!

Here he is warming up.

Someone had to hop in and ruin the picture!

A nice warm welcome to…

Seat fit for a princess (aka: me).

Suiting up for swing analysis. Think: Pixar movies and turning humans into animated characters.

Taking it outside.

New clubs are ordered and they arrive in a week. Husband won’t be able to sleep a single night until they come!

Best part was getting to hang out with him this morning and afternoon. Another close second is going to Whole Foods. In Ontario they are far and few between, so being in Oakville (one of the few locations) meant me googling the distance from the golf course to the Whole Foods – lucky for me, it was a 10min drive away.

We stopped quickly for some snacks and drinks, then were on our way!

He’s now headed to work and I must continue on with this fun day! But, before I go, a few eats from my weekend + some from today:

Roast potatoes with rosemary.

Spinach salad with avo, carrots, cucumber, chickpeas, kidney beans, nutritional yeast and sunflower seeds.

Angela's newest overnight oats!

Berries and cherries!

My very first cold kombucha drink (purchased at WF)

Roasted veggie and goat cheese pizza on a wholegrain crust.

Plus, some un-pictured fresh salads from WF – one was a purple and green kale salad with lemon dressing and second was a quinoa salad with sweet potatoes and spinach in a ginger-soy dressing. Both were SO good.

Q: If you have a significant other, what are some of the things they do that you go along with because you know it makes them happy?

    What a fun time with your husband. Love all the fun golfing pictures and the delicious meals! That pizza looks incredible. My bf loves anything technology related and since he’s taking his medical boards he loads up all his medical knowledge on me!

  2. That certainly looks like a Monday Funday! That’s pretty exciting.

  3. Sounds like you and your husband had a lovely morning! What did you think of the Kombucha? I didn’t like it the first time.. bc I got plan.. but once I got flavored..I absolutely loved it!

  4. Alisa says:

    What a great way to start the week! I love that pizza!

  5. My hubby loooooves golf. Loves it. He competed in college and would probably kill to have your hubby’s job. I myself hate golf and am a bad wife and refuse to participate in anything golf-related.

    •’re just like me then haha. I amuse him and go out on the golf cart with him…but read a book the whole time, while saying, “nice shot!” My hubby played in college too down in South Carolina!

  6. My bf plays hockey once a week, and I used to go to every game and cheer for him, but stop going because I find it too cold sitting in the arena and the games are very late too (11:30PM start sometimes!). He’s also getting interested in golf so we’ll see, I like the driving range but can’t imagine spending hours on a course.

  7. A GOLF PRO!!! That is the coolest thing EVER!! Girl, you are SO SO gorgeous!! Your food is making my stomach growl!

  8. You sound like you had a great day! I want to eat all that avocado off that salad! It looks so good.

  9. Why do men love golf so much?! My boyfriend is OBSESSED! If he’s not playing it, he’s thinking about it or talking about it! Luckily I bought myself a pair of clubs and can hit the ball decently well so it is a great way to spend time together but good lord, I don’t want to play golf every weekend! haha

  10. He does look like a kid in a candy store! What a great experience for him! It’s great that you went along with him too. For my hubby and I, he likes me to come to the hardware store with him. I hate going, but I know it means a lot to him, so I put on my happy face, and go along for the ride.
