My weekend

Hey, what's up buttercup??  Just a post to check-in...

My weekend was pretty low-key. On Friday, I just went to the spring pow-wow at U of Wpg.  It was some last-minute plans.  It was a great night with Nay-Nay and Princess P. Got home around 10-ish...and I was soooooo tired...especially considering that I wokeup at 5am that day. 

Saturday:  I really, really tried to sleep in! honest! But I ended up waking up at 6-freaking-30! UGH. I guess that's what happens when I don't have wine the night before, lol - KIDDING. So since I was up, I figured that I'd go to the 8:30 hot yoga class. It was nice. Major laundry accomplished today too.  It was also my sister's birthday I called her to wish here a happy birthday.  It was great to talk to her...I love my little sis!  During the afternoon, I went to the play Where the Blood Mixes.  It was EXCELLENT! OMG, I was blown away.  It was funny and extremely moving.  (I cried a couple of times, haha) Afterward, I walked around Portage Place for a bit and tried to look for some tunics to wear with leggings.  I admit that I've been late to jump on the leggings-bandwagon, but I love wearing them all the time now!  I took a bus home and I literally felt emotionally-drained from the play!! It really got to me. So Saturday night, I just chilled at home by myself and listened to old-school songs and went to bed earlish (for a Saturday anyway) at 11:30.

Sunday: I love DIM SUM!!! My Boo and I went to Dim Sum Garden in Chinatown for brunch. They have 'happy hour' from 11-2 on Sundays (2-4 on all other days). We got there around 11:15 and was surprised to find that there was NO lineup. I think the time change had something to do with it because when we left about an hour later, there was a big lineup to get in.  This place is one of my 2 favourite places for dim sum in the city, with the other being Kum Koon Garden.  I was proud of myself for not getting any deep-fried items! Yaay, go me! I usually like to get the spring rolls, but didn't need them this time around. Picked up some movies on the way home: Precious, Hurrican Season and Boondock Saints II. I loved Precious! I'm going to buy the blu-ray version.

Monday:  Hot yoga class at 9:30 am. I took some time off from work to make it to the class. I was too tired to wake up for the 6am class! It was good. For lunch, I swung by Tall Grass Bakery for some lunch. I tried these 2 mushroom turnovers...they were AMAZING!! You should try them!  Then I went to Organic Planet and picked up a sandwich and an avocado. It sounds like lots of food, but it was my breakfast and lunch, LOL! I had 1/2 the sandwich but the avocado wasn't quite ripe, so Ijust left it on my desk to have later this week. 

So I got into this last-minute cooking class:
