this was my first "real" weekend in quite a while.  I was working both saturday and sunday up until hawaii and now I'm only working saturdays so I actually have some time to myself.  this weekend I tried to make very minimal plans and I was SO looking forward to it.

friday, I had an amazing hot yoga class- it felt great to release all those toxins and sweat like a crazy person for an entire hour.  so wonderful. then derek and I relaxed on the couch with popcorn and a movie. perfect night in my books.

saturday, highlights included a nice run around the neighbourhood with D and this chicken enchilada spaghetti for dinner

sunday was just wonderful. I have missed sundays dearly. it started off great with homemade crepes!

this was the recipe I used from allrecipes:
*1 cup flour
*1/2 cup water
*1/2 cup milk
*2 eggs
*2 tablespoons melted butter
*1 teaspoon vanilla (don't add if you want to make savoury crepes)

mix the water, milk, melted butter, eggs, vanilla.  then gradually whisk in the flour.  I put a small amount of butter in the frying pan before each crepe to prevent sticking.  pour in about 1/4 cup batter and tilt the pan to spread the batter into a large circle. after ~2 minutes flip and cook for another 2.
makes 8 crepes.

toppings are endless:
-nutella and banana
-peanut butter and banana

following breakfast and some relaxation around the house we were off to start our sunday errands.  we hunted down some great finds for our halloween costumes and then ventured out to the nanaimo river to get some sunshine.  I had to do some fieldwork for one of my assignments for school so D took me to a couple different spots to make some notes and get some photos.  it was such a gorgeous day to be outside.

now to enjoy the rest of my sunday evening before a busy week ahead.  hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
