Crosswords, cupcakes, & commercials

I wanted to share some of the highlights of my weekend in this post, enjoy!

On Friday I thought I was going to be a hermit but fate, or rather Marissa, had other plans. And I’m so glad I didn’t end up being a recluse! I went with Marissa, Taryn, and Robin to Extreme Bean Cafe located at 3303 3 Ave NW. The plan was to just meet there and go for a stroll along the river, but the weather had taken a turn, as I have learned is the norm in Calgary, and we decided to have coffee inside. It’s a good thing too, or we might never have discovered how, when we put our brains together. we can achieve amazing things. Like completing the FFWD crossword!

To some this may seem like no big feat, but I suck at crosswords and was impressed with our determination. We stayed till the end! And my mochachino was pretty tasty too.

Saturday I was off to work. Even though it is still winter we have some flowers at work to remind us that spring is on the way. They came from Twigs, look gorgeous, and smell amazing! I think they’re hyacinths?

Another perk of the day was that there was cupcakes shared by Kristen and candy hearts!

Sunday was totally devoted to relaxation. Armed with a large mug of coffee and some leftover cheesecake I settled in too watch Super Bowl commercials. I’m the kind of person who likes watching the previews before the movie and appreciates a well made commercial, especially if it makes me laugh!

My 2 favourite’s are both from Volkswagen. Perhaps that’s a sign….

 

 

 

I also downloaded John Mellencamp’s album, The Best That I Could Do from iTunes.  I have my Mom to thank for introducing me to Mellencamp and a lot of other great musicians. His song’s remind me summer when I was younger.

Conclusion: This weekend was brought to you by the letter ‘C’.

the cupcake made me do it

So today, after Kiah and I treked to the Greyhound station to pick up our tickets for the long x-mas journey home, Kiah just had to have a cupcake, and I admit she didn’t have to twist my arm to get me to go to Crave cupcakes.

I was only going to get 1 but it just seemed more economical to get the six pack and split the cost. We got 2 nutty over chocolates, 2 velvet Elvis’, a eggnog , and a gingerbread. The Velvet Elvis’, which is my absolute fave, were devoured before a picture could be taken, but trust me, they were amazing!

The seasonal flavours are tasty too. The snowflakes sprinkles on the eggnog cupcake are the perfect touch, but I am a sucker for a snowflake!
