Easter Weekend.

Are you sweating mini eggs and chocolate at your workouts so far this week? I SURE AM.

Post-spin yesterday morning ;)

But it was all worth it, of course :)

This past weekend I went to my hometown of 100 Mile House (<— yup, there is a place called that) for a much needed mini vacation…and it was oh so wonderful.

Get ready for the most food-filled post. I really didn’t take a lot of pictures of anything else.. but who’s really complaining?

Easter seems like a really great excuse to eat as much chocolate as humanly possible. Let’s just say I had no trouble completing that task.

I bought oodles of croissants and coffee before I left Vancouver as a little gift.

French fries and burgers: I haven’t eaten fast food in YEARS. We went to A&W because it was the only thing open. Man, I forgot what a luxury it is to live in a big city when it comes to holiday weekends.

IMG_9540IMG_9539There was no short supply of chocolate.

IMG_9542Naturally, the Easter Bunny turned into a Dinosaur at the ranch. Everything is bigger and better in the country.

We went to The Hungry Bear Diner for breakfast. I swear small towns purposely give eateries funny names…. why?

We were there early on Saturday morning and let me tell you – it was THE place to be. Buzzing with people and everyone seemed like they knew each other..and well, they did.

I ordered pancakes that were oh-so-fluffy and enormous. All swooshed down with endless amounts of coffee, just the way I like it.

Sunday evening we roasted hot dogs and made s’mores! When was the last time you made s’mores?! Nothing I love more. Just so good.

We sat around the fire until it was dark roasting marshmallows and hot dogs and laughing more than anything. I forgot how peaceful fires can be and how much better hot dogs taste when you cook them over a fire. It’s always the little things!


IMG_9585I also got to hang out with one of my favourites… Kim (aka, twin)!

And Prince.

IMG_9552I managed to get in a one workout, a 16km run, and ONE green smoothie. Ha!

IMG_9594Couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing weekend. No watches, not a care in the world just laughter, great food, fresh air, and the best company.

  • Sounds like a well-deserved break from everything! And oh those pancakes! I would do almost anything for those fluffy things :)
    Everything tastes way better cooked over the fire! I can’t wait for our first camping trip to make s’mores!
    Totally creepy- but I googled exactly where 100 Mile House is. It’s super close to Jasper!

      I would do almost anything for fluffy pancakes as well – so delicious and comforting! And googling is not creepy at all!! I do it all the time!

    This sounds WONDERFUL!!! I also want a s’more now. MAN that looks good. I swear we would be two peas in a pod…WE ARE two peas in a pod. Spending oodles on coffee and treats, running, and drinking green sounds like the PERFECT weekend to me.

    Sounds like an amazing weekend — its been so long since I’ve had s’mores (on the Oregon coast would be the last time). Fire roasted hot dogs and s’mores and … sounds so amazing. Sign me up! Coffee + s’mores + a good run = the best Easter weekend

  • This is simply wondefrul. I love little getaways when you throw away all cares, ignore the watch and your phone, and totally connect with the amazing people, food, and environment around you. Lovvvve the pic of fries- A & W’s are the best! And campfire…. ahhhhh I can’t wait to do this once it warms up a bit (still a bit too cold for that here!)
