Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to a weekend that finally feels like spring! It’s been a long and cold winter, so I’m so grateful that the weather is starting to warm up. Next week is supposed to get up to 14 C or 57 F. I can’t wait for more sun and less snow.

Will you be doing anything to celebrate St Patrick’s Day this weekend? I’m going to be making an Irish inspired meal with my boyfriend on Saturday – we’ll be cooking up some corned beef and cabbage. Corned beef is actually a favorite of mine, but I hardly ever make it. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to it.

In usual Friday fashion here on Get Fit Fiona, I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite things from the past week.


I’ve mentioned going to Vagabond, a pub within walking distance of my boyfriend’s place once or twice before on the blog. We’ve been there 5 or 6 times how, and it’s quickly becoming a favorite of ours. They have a great selection of craft beers.

My favorites so far from the menu are the reuben and the chorizo mac and cheese (pictured above). My boyfriend says that the falafel pizza is delicious too. Since it’s so close to the Saddledome, Vagabond can get pretty busy on nights when there’s a Hitmen game or the Flames are playing. Making a reservation is your best bet on those nights.

How Yoga Works

I’ve finally been able to dive into this book now that I’m done studying for tests and preparing for practice teaching at yoga teacher training. It’s my second time reading it (a good friend was willing to lend it to me again), and I’m still learning lots this time around, just like I did the first time through.

If you’re wanting to deepen your understanding about yoga philosophy, or even just dip your toes into it, I highly recommend How Yoga Works (affiliate link). The writers made yoga philosophy really accessible and easy to understand. If you’re at all intimidated by it like I was, you don’t have to be.

Yappy Hour

The place where my boyfriend took his bulldog puppy for obedience classes holds a puppy socialization play time on Friday nights. We’ve taken him a few times now and every single night it’s so much fun. Winston and the other puppies chase each other, bark, and play with each other.

Winston always has a lot of fun. He’s completely oblivious that he’s the smallest one there – he’s right in the middle of everything with all the other puppies. It’s pretty funny that it always takes him a day or two to recover from all the fun. The day after yappy hour he sleeps a ton and in general has less energy than he usually has. It’s actually kind of a good thing though cause he has a lot of puppy energy.

What’s a favorite of yours from the past week? Share it in the comments below.
