Wishing you a sweet weekend

Three cheers for Friday! What are all you lovelies up to this weekend?

It's Jason's little bro's birthday (happy birthday Ross!), so we're headed to a yummy seafood restaurant this evening to celebrate. The rest of the weekend, I plan to stock up on healthy groceries for the week, try out some recipes from my new cookbooks, get in a couple good workouts, catch up on my Mondo Beyondo course, and fill out my application to volunteer at the local humane society. (The humane society needs volunteers to help walk dogs on their 5.5-mile nature path. I've been wanting to volunteer with animals for awhile now and this seems like the perfect opportunity. I hope it works out!) Oh, and it's supposed to snow a bit this weekend! If so, you'll find me curled up by the fire with a mug of chai. Mmm...

I hope you have a delightful weekend, whatever adventures may come your way.

P.S. Have you noticed les macarons popping up everywhere these days? I'm officially calling it: macaroons are the new cupcakes.

i totally agree! what a trend spotter you are! while travelling in france this year, we were introduced to macarons, and since then, they seem to be everywhere! they ARE the new cupcakes! (and i've even seen them in vancouver already!)

Sounds like a great weekend! Have fun!

I love that you are volunteering to walk dogs! So wondeful!

And, you are totally making me crave sweets now!

What a coincidence! I was checking out the local animal shelter volunteer listings this week too! (Part of my New Year's Resolution to work with animals -- besides my husband ;->).

And macaroons? Yum!

Your weekend sounds absolutely lovely. I hope you enjoy it darling.

I completely agree with you about macaroons. They seem to be everywhere these days. The french bistro place next to my works makes mint ones that are heavenly.

How is your Mondo Beyondo class going?

Love macarons, and they have all kinds of fun flavors at the corner bakery, but I don't love them more than cupcakes. Still, I hope you're correct so my weekly cupcake habit will drop in price!
