Three Things Thursday – Catching Up!

I seriously cannot believe it is already Thursday! Where has the week gone?

Usually short weeks seem to drag on, but this one has flown by! It’s been a super short work week for me – with Monday being Family Day and having to take Tuesday off work to stay home with my kids – and it has completely thrown me off! I have so much to do before tomorrow! Aaaahhhh!

So, I’ve pretty much been MIA from my blog lately and although I miss it, I’m totally feeling blog burnout! I’ve been blogging now for almost a year and this is the first time I have missed my regular posts and the first time I haven’t been feeling the love 😦 Has this ever happened to you? How did you overcome it? Any tips or suggestions?

In the meantime, on to this week’s Three Things Thursday. I’ve got a bit of Catching Up to do…

1. I’ve been busy! This past week has probably been one of the busiest I’ve had in years! Here’s a little about what’s been keeping me from my blog:

Friday – last friday was Ryan’s third birthday and although we didn’t have a party at home, she had a super fun party with her friends at daycare. She absolutely loved the princess cake Kim made for her and was so excited that her daycare friends sang her Happy Birthday!

Saturday – we went to watch my Brother-in-Law Mark coach the Hershey Bears when they came to town to play the Toronto Marlies. Unfortunately the Bears lost, but it was GREAT to see Mark!

Sunday – I went to the Bon Jovi concert with my sister and 3 girlfriends. The concert was amazing (as usual) but spending some time with friends I don’t see very often was even better. We met at my friends house, took the subway into Toronto for dinner at Jo Badali’s (who, by the way, has the best pizza ever), enjoyed the awesome concert, went for a few drinks at the Loose Moose, ate streetmeat (OMG, so good) then headed home to solve the worlds problems with a few more beers in the hot tub! It was such a great time! We’ve decided we are going to take our love of Bon Jovi on the road and go and see him in Jersey! Can’t wait! Anyone know when he’s playing there?

Monday – Family Day and Ryan’s Birthday party!

Tuesday – home with the kids – unfortunately I had to take Tanner to the doctor, again, for another ear infection. 5th one of the winter. Poor kid! Needless to say, he’s been a little cranky these past few days!

Wednesday – back to work after a busy 4 day weekend! Needless to say, it was a early night! I did manage, however, to make a super yummy dinner from the most recent issue of Clean Eating Magazine. We had Sesame Pork Tenderloin with Baby Bok Choy and Apple Tamari Glaze. It only took about 20 minutes to make and was delicious! Add it to the list!

2. WIAW – I have not been eating well at all lately 😦 I know its a horrible excuse, but I have been so busy and so tired that I have not been making it a priority. Anyways, here’s what I ate yesterday…

Breakfast: OJ and WW toast with almond butter

Snack: apple and peanuts

Lunch – Booster Juice Smoothie

Dinner – Sesame Pork Tenderloin with Baby Bok Choy and Apple Tamari Glaze

Snack – Quinoa granola (a little treat from my foodie penpal – Thanks Natalie 🙂 )

3. I’m off for a weekend of R&R! I’m super excited to get away for the weekend. I’m looking forward to an uninterrupted shower, closing the bathroom door to pee, sleeping in (later than 6am), reading, maybe watching a movie and of course, getting a little lot of scrapbooking done. My sister and I, along with a few other ladies are headed back to a Bed & Breakfast in the Kawarthas. We have arranged for all of our meals to be prepared for us, so I just need to grab a few healthy snacks and i’m good to go! Woohoo!

  1. I hear you on the blogger burnout. Just don’t seem to have the energy this week. Hopefully I get my blog mojo back soon. Can’t wait for this weekend. So not ready, but it can’t get here soon enough!
