Welcome to another beginning of the week!  How was your weekend?

Sorry I went a little MIA on Friday and over the weekend.  Unfortunately there was an event that occurred that had (has) me really down and just didn’t think it was respectful to try and sound happy go-lucky or anything along those lines.

But the weekend was fairly enjoyable, I am just shocked that it is over already 😦  And once again I took very few pictures… one day I will get into the habit.

So let’s jump into MIMM!  Thanks Katie!MiMM

Marvellous is… Getting my hair cut FINALLY!  It was getting a little ridiculously long, read half way down my back.  It is now at a very manageable shoulder length.  And get this, my hair stylist just did Paris Hilton’s hair for a show she was doing in Calgary!  How cool is that!?  He showed me the pics and everything 😀  I think the best one was of Paris (yes we are on a first name basis 😉 ) getting her hair done by one person, her make up by another, and her nails done all while typing with her other hand on her laptop.  I think that might the be ultimate in multi tasking.

Marvellous is… Date night with my man!  After I got my hair done Friday night, John and I headed out to the Coup for dinner.  It is a vegetarian place with some of the best food!  A review is likely on the books for tomorrow so I won’t give too much away, but we had a great night!photo 1

Marvellous is… Having two amazing friends over for dinner Saturday night.  We were finally able to have them over for dinner, after they have hosted countless a dinner.  John and I decided on a beer can chicken, roasted veggies, salad, and a Guinness cake.  I think it all turned out really well, we just need to get on top of our furniture/home decorating situation.

Marvellous was… Getting in a little gym time this morning followed by a lovely walk in the sun this afternoon.  We decided to head out to North Glenmore Park in Calgary, and what a great idea that was.  We had never been there and are glad we finally did.  The views of the mountains are incredible and it feels very woodsy in the middle of the city.

Marvellous was… having some great food over the last few days.  Pancakes, wraps, hot oatmeal, chicken, burgers… It was a delicious few days!photo 3 photo 4 photo 2

Marvellous are… These fabulous chewy granola bars that Amanda at Running with Spoons created!  I have a feeling that these aren’t going to last for long 😉


Marvellous is…Watching people become stronger and never giving up.  You know who you are 😉

  1. Yay for great date nights! I love how much closer it seems like we are after date nights… That could be just in my head though! Ahh can’t wait to see your cut! So cool that your hairdresser did Paris Hilton’s!

    • Haha ya it feels nice when you are actually able to go on one. It’s so nice to just have a time that it’s the two of you and you can have amazing conversations and find out what’s going on in each others lives.

      I almost fell over when he told me he did her hair. I felt really bad on cancelling my appointment before New Years after that :S

  2. My last haircut was this time last year! Oops really need to get onto that 😉

    Sorry to hear you had some not great news but sometimes life definitely needs to come before blogging that’s for sure.

    All your recent eats looked delicious! You’ve also made me want to try Amanda’s granola bars.

    Happy now Tuesday!

    • HAHA ya, that’s usually my haircut schedule too!

      Yes, I just felt really down and thought it wouldn’t be right to put on a happy act and didn’t want to write anything about it to protect the privacy of others.

      Thanks! Careful with the bars… so so addictive! I see why she’s been making batches of them!

      Happy Tuesday/almost Wednesday to you!

  3. I have to go about 8 weeks between cuts max, more because I need the color than anything else. All the working out and my coarse hair just drain the brunette out until I’m a sad, faded, dishwater version of myself.
