WW and Trying New Things: Breakfast Cookies

Since joining WW I've tried to go out of my comfort zone a little, forcing myself to try new things. One of those was trying new recipes. I have to say, this recipe from WW was really easy to make, was super fast in the oven, and tasted great. And as someone who hates eating breakfast, this was a fast and easy way to get some nutrients into my body early in the day (it paired really well with my coffee!). Bonus: it was gluten and dairy-free AND my kids loved it (probably because of the chocolate chips).

When Your Heart is Full

This past weekend was really something special. It was a long weekend here (Family Day weekend) and also Valentine's Day on Friday. I woke up early on Friday morning to surprise flowers from my husband...it was such a nice way to start the day...especially since my day starts at 5:30 a.m.
Roses in the morning 
On Friday evening we made a special family Valentine's Day pancake dinner for the kids and we spent the evening playing board games. It didn't last long, the kids are super sore losers but I guess I can't blame them since we did parents vs. kids and we kicked their butts! 😅😅😅😅😅
Parents vs Kids Game Night
Saturday night my hubby and I went out for an amazing dinner just us two. It was a much needed evening out and left us so full that I seriously had to lie down in the car the whole way home - I thought I was safe with stretchy pants but apparently, my belly was too full and my pants didn't want to stretch with it.
Deconstructed Cheesecake and a Cappuccino! Heaven!
Sunday was another day spent with family - I went to visit my parents with my daughter for the day...and my son had hockey and then a sleepover birthday party.

Monday, the official holiday...I had to work and so did hubby so my parents took the kids to an outdoor family festival complete with outdoor skating, hot chocolate, and outdoor band.

It was an amazing weekend filled with quality family time...and while I'm always happy to have the relief of going back to work after these weekends lol I still feel like my heart is full and I'm lucky to have them all in my life!
