Weekend Get-Away – MIMM


 Welcome back to another Marvelous in My Monday hosted by the lovely Healthy Diva Eats.

Marvelous is –  My weekend get-away with great friends and good food. This was the second time in over six years I have been away on my own and the first time that it wasn’t work related. No Little, no Mister … just me meeting up with my fabulous friends in the Ottawa Valley.

Marvelous is – A quiet Highway and a sign showing you are almost there.

Marvelous is –  Spending Friday with my amazing friend Colleen and later that evening stuffing our faces with tapas from 25 West followed by dessert crepes and peppermint hot chocolate The Nook.

Marvelous is – The Signature Fries at 25 West Taps and Tapas. Handcut, tossed in truffle butter and Parmesan cheese, served up with Bacon Ketchup that was more like a tomato/bacon chutney but delicious none the less.

Marvelous is –  Meeting up with Hollie for a Saturday workout at her gym and a 7k run.

Marvelous is –  Celebrating Hollie’s first Fitness Competition with Veal Marsala and Banana Split martini’s at Anthony’s Italian Grill . Let’s pretend I drank the martini purely to replace the potassium lost during my run earlier in the day.


Hollie looking FABULOUS – October 2012 to November 2013. 

Marvelous is – These girls! Melodie, Hollie and Stacie, former colleagues who have become some of the most important people in my life. I miss seeing them every day.

Marvelous is – Coming home to my cozy house on the Island and having this guy leap into my arms.



That wraps up my Marvelous Weekend … I ate too much, drank too much, slept too little and can’t wait to do it again.


Three thing you did this weekend?

Are you a martini fan? What is your favorite flavour?
