It is Friday everyone, this means weekend time is around the corner and I always relate weekends to perhaps getting a little more sleep, getting out and doing something adventurous and creating delicious breakfasts that you can indulge on (with that giant cup of coffee in your hand)! Most of you know that I am a nurse, which entails working weekends, so when I get a weekend off I make it count! Let me introduce you to my perfect weekend breakfast of creamy vanilla oats, caramelized bananas and crunchy energizing almonds. After a great morning work out, I love to treat myself to my creamy Brûléed Banana Nut Oats. With this nourishing breaky, you can take on the weekend!
After you inhale your scrumptious bowl of Brûléed Banana Nut Oats, it’s time to get exploring the city. I am always looking for different activities to do around the city and I thought I would share with you some events in and around Calgary that you can go check out, especially during these gorgeous winter days. There is a lot going on in and around Calgary this weekend, here are a few to check out, make time for you this weekend!
Feeling like you need your musical fix? I recently heard about BIG Winter Classic 2017 January 19th-22nd, it is an event full of arts, music, local craft beer and includes over 60 bands, 5 stages being featured at 3 different venues.
I love to immerse myself in new cultures and experience traditions other than mine, I hope to be able to get down to the Chinese Cultural Center to celebrate the Chinese New Year Festival! Experience Chinese culture through food, games, activities and performances over the next couple weekends.
Now that we aren’t experiencing sub zero temperatures, it’s great to get outdoors this weekend. Last winter i decided to tie up my skates and show off my ridiculously amazing skating skills… let’s say I remember being A LOT better when i was younger, but it was such a blast! Gather up those skates, mittens and toques and hit up the numerous skating rinks in Calgary open this weekend, click here to get skating!
After your day of skating why not go check out the pros? Calgary Flames vs Edmonton Oilers, this Saturday at 8:00pm, Go Flames Go!
Want to get out of the city and enjoy the mountains, without hitting the slopes? This is a must do on my list and I hope to go next weekend to take in all the excitement at the Ice Magic Festival in Lake Louise! I mean just your surroundings are breath taking and then add in an ice carving competition celebrating and honoring Canada’s 150th birthday, I can’t wait!
So take some time this weekend for delicious and nutritious eats and go try out a new experience! Happy Weekend everyone!
