Weekend Recap and a Recipe!
Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a splendid day! I am so happy you enjoyed my first (almost) no word/all picture post Thank you for all of the wonderful comments! You all are really too sweet!
So I guess I have a lot to catch you guys up on!? But I think you got the gist of what took place yesterday Some serious shopping!
My Mom and I got our David’s Tea as soon as we entered the mall and then got a ton of Christmas shopping done We didn’t actually end up making a home cooked dinner at my place as I had planned since our shopping date was quite a long process
When my Mom and I shop we like to shop all day So we ended up having a beautiful meal at Milestone’s I knew Milestone’s would be one of the things on our to do list since it is one of my Mom’s favourite restaurants
We had great intentions on seeing Breaking Dawn last night as well… We even purchased tickets! But, our movie date was postponed until today when we saw that the only seats left in the theatre were in the front row! I would not have enjoyed the movie if I had to sit that close, so we went today instead and got much better seats to view Robert Pattinson from (which obviously made my day)
Before I get going about how much I love Robert, I should inform you that I had my very first bowl of pumpkin oats this morning…
(I have no idea why I didn’t jump on the pumpkin oats bandwagon prior to this morning, but they were phenomenal!)
my Mom and I also enjoyed a gym date together this morning and went to church My gym session was mediocre. I did my usual shoulder workout, but added in drop sets for something different. Next week I will definitely be planning an entirely new shoulder workout as it seems that I am at a stand still with this workout… It’s just not fun doing the same thing every week and not increasing your weights. I worked out my frustrations with some HIIT on the treadmill, got really sweaty, and called it a workout! I am obviously really happy with the muscle I have built over the past year. Personally, I am impressed with my shoulders, but I want to increase my weights so badly! It seems as though I have been reaching PR’s in every other muscle group besides for my shoulders. Talk about frustrating!
Church was beautiful as per usual It’s always nice going to church with someone rather than by myself I greatly appreciate my Mom being here
It was not until after church that I finally got to see my Robert My Mom and I went to the afternoon show of Breaking Dawn and I loved every moment of this movie
I have to say, I am such a girl. I honestly had shivers for the entire wedding scene and wanted to be Bella so badly! I cannot wait until my wedding day Definitely something I think of often…
Like I said, I am such a girl.
Also, every time Edward/Robert looked at Bella/Kristen I thought it was just so magical I sound so lame, but honestly… I love the love story within the Twilight series. That is what I truthfully love about it. I don’t go to see the shirtless Jacob, but I actually appreciate the love story within it all
Tonight my Mom and I were able to make our home cooked dinner together I was so excited! I have been planning on seared scallops for weeks since they are my Mom’s all time favourite! So… seared scallops is what was on the menu
1 lb. fresh scallops
Seasoning of choice (I like using Watkin’s Fish & Seafood seasoning because it is simple and just enhances the wonderful flavour of the scallops themselves!)
Cooking spray or olive oil
Spray or lightly oil your pan and heat on medium high. Place scallops in pan and allow to cook. When scallops appear cooked half way through or begin to brown on the side facing down (as seen in the picture above) flip and brown the other side. I cook scallops like a steak, so cook the scallops to your desired doneness.
These were honestly the best scallops I have ever made. I think I just wanted to impress my Mom
It’s almost bed time here, though friends! I have 8:30 am class tomorrow and I still want to cuddle with my Mom on the couch for a bit
Do you fantasize about your wedding?
(An even better question) Do you fantasize about Robert Pattinson!?
What did you do today?
I appreciate being able to have the time to prepare my Mom a wonderful meal tonight
