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?


weekend recap

So, it’s Monday and I haven’t blogged all weekend. I suck. I blame the nice weather and going down to Toronto yesterday…what crappy things to be doing instead of blogging, right?

Will a little weekend recap make it better?

9am-1pm: little sis, husband and I watched mine and the hub’s niece and nephew. Jen, my little sis, is in her prime for babysitting and always wants to babysit the niece and nephew, so that’s exactly what happened. Good times. No one got hurt and diapers got changed.

1pm onward: watching the Masters (obviously…I married a golf pro!) and going to friends’ to bbq! No pictures were taken because frankly, I forgot. Totally need someone to be my camera man. Apply below.

Is this legal for Sunday mornings?

To see 7:15am?

It seems only me, the husband (who had just left for work – yes, I know it’s Sunday, but remember, he’s a golf pro and there’s nothing normal about the days/hours they work) and this cutie were up.

This is him beginning to move towards me as I take the picture.

Since I was up, what better thing to do than eat. So, I made it worth it:

Classy ladies take picture of just one waffle pretending that’s all they ate, when they really they made several. Crap! I just gave away the secret.

I knew the afternoon was going to be hectic, so I (naturally) watched some How I Met Your Mother before studying some more chem. I needed the show to ‘warm’ me up…or at least that’s the story I’m going with!

Ok, so fast-forward to the lovely afternoon; sun is shining, weather is finally cooperating and I’m on my way to meet the husband so we can head to Toronto for the Raptors game!

Remember: tickets c/o a member at the course the hubby works at.

There was only one slight dilemma; the game started at 6pm, but the Masters was wrapping up around then, too. So once we made it to the ACC, we went across the street to this humungous sports bar, and watched the ending. I wonder who won…

Oh, right, Charl won. How could I forget with the massive TV overlooking the whole bar! I joke, folks.

Then, it was onto the next sporting event. {Insert husband in guy heaven}.

Our seats were pretty awesome for freebies.

I would post a pic of the hubby and I at the game, but the lighting was terrible!

And that, my friends is how my weekend went. I can’t complain one bit.

Luckily the nice weather didn’t end there, it’s still continued into today. So I gladly ran some errands and wore shoes that didn’t require socks!

Happy Monday!

PS – today I went through the fridge, to see what new items I needed to pick up, and came across this:

Is it normal to have this much cheese in one fridge? I think we might need intervention. Any cheesy recipes? haha

What was your favourite part about the weekend?
