Is anyone else super excited for the long weekend too? I’m looking forward to a few extra days to take it easy. I started off the Easter weekend by going to a yoga class this morning. It was tough, but I knew I wouldn’t have worked that hard if I was doing it at home. I’m glad I went, but I was sweating like crazy about half way through.

Since it’s Friday I’ll be sharing some of my favorite things from the past week.

Spring weather

On Thursday I went for a walk with just my t-shirt – no need for a jacket or hoodie! It felt so good to be outside with the sun shining down. It definitely feels like spring is here. On the flip side, seeing my pasty white arms outside in the sun made me realize how pale I am.

Playoff hockey

Any other hockey fans around here? It’s always a big deal when the Flames make it into the playoffs. I’m hoping they make it past the first round this year. They play Colorado again tonight, and if they lose then they’re eliminated.

Needless to say, I have my fingers crossed that they win tonight. They have a huge area fenced off outside of the Saddledome where they play for fans to watch the game on a big screen. They even have a huge goal light. It’s been cloudy all day and it looks like it’s threatening to rain, so I’m not sure how many people will be willing to brave the weather for a couple hours to watch the game.

Barbecued hamburgers

Speaking of spring weather, we barbecued some hamburgers earlier this week and they were so good! It was the first time we used the barbecue in 2019, so it tasted extra delicious. There’s just something about cooking them on the barbecue that makes them so much better than cooking them up on the stove.

Is anyone else watching playoff hockey? Who are you cheering for?

Favorite burger toppings?

Mine are onion, ketchup, mustard, and guacamole.
