Our Weekend Getaway and Back to Reality


J and I went away for the weekend after the wedding to have some down time. We stayed at a hotel where all my family was the night of the wedding and we all had breakfast together, including some of my friends that were visiting as well.

We headed to Niagara Falls for a couple of days and it was wonderful. We had a beautiful room with the most amazing view.

The first day we had the most amazing nap. We got there in the afternoon and spent hours just relaxing. I felt unbelievably relaxed which was so nice after a very hectic week before. We went out for the most delicious dinner at this Italian place called Napoli’s. I would go back there in an instant it was so good. We started with a Caesar salad and rice balls which have a prettier Italian name that I totally can’t recall now. I had a Caesar to drink and it was so yummy.


For my dinner I had the most delicious ravioli I have ever had in my life. It was so light and fluffy.

absolutely amazing.  I want to go back.

Then we had Tiramisu for dessert and I didn’t think I would like it but it was amazing. We were both stuffed. We went back to the room and I crashed and had an amazing sleep.

The next day we went to the touristy area and did some fun tourist stuff. We spent some time playing arcade games and hanging out at the bar and that was really fun. Then we went to this really cool brewery called “Syndicate Brewery”.

so many delicious choices

There we had a tasting of different beer and I chose a Vanilla Wheat beer. We shared a duck poutine and fish tacos.

these were really good.  sadly, no picture of the duck poutine because we ate it too fast.

We had some more relaxing time in the hotel and went for a late dinner. We went to Canyon Creek and ate like royalty. The food was really good and we got a romantic fallsview table.

We headed to the casino after and played some slots. I won $50 which was perfect because we spent $40 so we actually even made money! Sadly the next morning we had to head home back to real life. It was nice because we picked up all our gifts and spent some time reading cards and opening presents. It was so nice to see how happy our friends and family were for us.

I actually had time to make it to my usual 415 class at the gym so I headed in to do that. It felt great to be back and working out again. Our strength wod was 10 sets of 2 back squats working to a 2 rm. I worked up to 140 lbs and felt so strong!

The wod:
18 min AMRAP
5 pull ups
10 push ups
15 squats
20 mountain climbers
25 flutter kicks

I even had a new outfit on that I got from the lululemon outlet we hit up on our way home.

that hair!

It felt good to be back at the gym after a couple days off but I did really enjoy the rest days.  I also made it to Tuesday morning for one more visit with my morning friends before heading back to work (booooo).  It was nice to see them all and they were all so excited to hear about the wedding.

The rest of the day was spent trying to organize my life after the break.  It felt good to have the extra day to get groceries and meal prep and just clean up and put stuff away.  Back to real life I suppose.  Only now I get to do it all with my husband.  xoxo

Do you find it hard to get back to it after a couple of days off?

I don’t actually.  I look forward to it.
