Weekend Adventures, Pre-teen Attitude and Meal Prep for the Week

Took the kids to Canada’s Wonderland last weekend on a whim, and took advantage of our season passes and the 19-degree fall weather. The day started off rocky with my pre-teen son being in a moooooood. But by the end, everyone pulled through and we finished the day strong with a few rides and funnel cakes!  We're excited to go back and experience Halloween Haunt in a few weeks! This coming week will be busy so I've pre-tracked some meals in my WW app to keep me on track.  A few things I prepped for easy grab-and-go meals: I made some WW Vegetable Soup. Baked some portobello mushrooms for a meatless main dish.  Made some hard-boiled eggs. Cooked some quinoa and chopped veggies to make some quick salads. Washed and chopped lettuce, cucumbers and peppers for easy meals and snacks. What's on your to-do list this week? On our favourite ride!

Quarantine Survival: 4 Netflix Canada Shows to Binge Watch

I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I am using this self-isolation/quarantine time wisely. I haven't started any new hobbies, nor do I have any interest in learning a new language (thanks for the tip Gwyneth).

Basically, my quarantine survival kit consists of wifi, social media, screen time for the kids, and Netflix. Lots of Netflix.

If you're looking for new shows to binge-watch...here are a few of my faves that I will probably rewatch soon!

Workin' Moms

OK, so I love this show. Not just because it's a Canadian original, but because I think every mom during different stages of parenting can relate to these characters and struggles at various points. It's hilarious, some parts are uncomfortable, and some storylines hit a little too close to home. But trust me, it's an easy and fast show to breeze through if you're quarantining yourself during this pandemic.

GOOP Lab

GOOP has a pretty comprehensive synopsis of what their Netflix docuseries is about (https://goop.com/the-goop-lab-netflix/). But what I found most interesting is how the ideas come to fruition and how the team really uses themselves as guinea pigs to get to the bottom of the research. My favourite episodes were Cold Comfort (ep. 2), and The Energy Experience (ep. 5).

Cable Girls

I needed an exciting go-to period drama to lose myself in, and this one did the trick. 5 whole seasons of how the lives of four young women in the 1920s are connected as they delve deep into their careers at the cable company in Madrid. Love, mystery, crime, drama...it's all there, and it's spectacular! 

Love is Blind

I'm not going to lie, I miss the Bachelor! And this show got me out of my Bachelor slump! There are people you may want to slap, there are budding love stories that may make you weep....all I'm gonna say is that you will love some...hate some....and then you'll stalk them on Instagram to see if they're still together or not! Come on...you know you want to come over to the dark side with me!


What are your go-to binge-worthy shows?
