1.  My Mother’s Day present. I already told you about the gift card I got in my banana muffins post but I haven’t told you what I bought. Among so many other cool things, I bought this lucky rooster. I had to. It spoke to me!

2.  Construction zones. Without any construction. Drives me crazy!! I’m all for slowing down if there are men working, but when the speed limit is reduced by 30 km/hr and there is only 1 pylon in sight….why!?

3.  Questions from a 2-year old. They’re probably some of the hardest, most complex questions you’ll ever have to answer:

Oscar: Mama, what kind of car is that?

Me: A Honda

Oscar: What kind of Honda?


Oscar: What kind of CRV?

Me: A red one

Oscar: What kind of red one?


4.  I cut Wally’s hair the other night. He IS Lloyd Christmas now. I’m so sorry little boy.

5.  This skillet quinoa and buttermilk pancake from Laurel Street Kitchen. #weekendplans

6.  Are you ever standing in a long line at a grocery store, when you remember something you were supposed to buy? Do you leave the line and go back and get it? Or just say screw it I’ll get it next time. It’s a dilemma I seem to always face at Costco where it’s so busy I just can’t bring myself to leave the line!

7. Walking through a spider web. Just so ick. I generally freak out a bit and assume there must be a spider on me.

8.  Instapots are the newest craze. I have a stovetop pressure cooker which I’m not very good at using and wasn’t sure what the difference between the two was. This article was pretty helpful – maybe it’ll help you too!

9.  I just started reading Big Little Lies. I haven’t seen the show yet – if you have, what do you think of it?

10. When someone flips you the bird while you’re driving or honks and you have NO idea why. What did I do!?rhubarb

Have a great weekend everyone! Cheers!

About Katherine

Heeey! Thank you for stopping by! I like 30-minute dinners and giant peanut butter cups made with only 3 ingredients. I LOVE food! If you do too, you're in the right place.

  1. Interesting article on the pressure cookers, I have both stove top and electric and must admit I also like the electrical one more

    1. I’ve heard that before. One day I’ll have to try the electrical version!

  2. Just wanted to say how much I loved this post. I may have woke my sleeping baby laughing, but it was worth it.

  3. Loved Big Little Lies! I haven’t read the book so I would be interested to see how the show differs from the book. Plus the book is always better. But Reese Witherspoon. And Nicole Kidman. Love them!

    1. YES I love them too. They’re actually the reason I got interested in the book!! Can’t wait to get through the book so I can see the show. I’ll let you know what I think!

  4. YES! I’m happy to slow down when there are actually construction workers in the construction zone. But when they aren’t there? Please take the signs down. It’s just silly. I loved the book Big Little Lies but I have yet to watch the show in case it doesn’t live up. You’ll have to tell me how you feel once you see it. I hate being disappointed in movies/TV based on books I enjoyed. Have a great weekend Katherine!

    1. OMG so right!! It is just silly. I think they’re just messing with us. I will absolutely let you know how the show is once I watch it. I’m almost done the book – can’t put it down! Hope you had a wonderful weekend Kelsie! XO
