Happy Weekend my Lovelies! I will be spending my weekend in Halifax at a yoga workshop with Nischala Joy Devi, master teacher of yoga, world renowned healer and author of The Secret Power of the Yoga Sutras. I am super excited:) Also, a few friends and I will be having dinner and drinks Friday and Saturday night... clearly I won't be drinking much as I have to be up at 7am for an asana class from 8-9am!
Enjoy your weekend!
I woke up at 6am this morning and couldn't fall back to sleep... so found the royal wedding on the Internet and watched it. I don't think I would plan my day around this event, but I have to admit it was nice to see. Being Canadian and all I thought I should post Kate Middleton's dress, it was designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. I really like the neck in the front and the back, and also love the lace! This wedding makes me miss London soooooooooooo very much:(
These are some photos my lovely friend Leah took of her parent's Campground. It's on the Annapolis River, which runs through our beautiful Annapolis Valley. Her and I edited them together! She is a great photographer! Stay tuned for more;)

This is the veggie meal Lori and I made on Saturday night:) It was sooooo very yummy! They are very simple to make!
Spinach Lasagna Rolls
What you'll need:
9 lasagna noodles, cooked
10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and completely drained
15 oz fat free ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and fresh pepper
32 oz tomato sauce
1 cup part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
What you'll do:
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan, mozzarella, egg, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Ladle about 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 12 baking dish.
Place a piece of wax paper on the counter and lay out lasagna noodles. Make sure noodles are dry. Take 1/3 cup of ricotta mixture and spread evenly over noodle.(make sure you do this because I forgot!) Roll carefully and place seam side down onto the baking dish. Repeat with remaining noodles. Ladle sauce over the noodles in the baking dish. Put foil over baking dish and bake for 40 minutes, or until cheese melts. Makes 9 rolls.

My friend Lori and I just started this 30 Day Shred. Good, good times... I actually kicked my own butt! I really enjoy Jillian Michaels but I seem to call her some choice names while we are doing what she calls the 20min workout but Lori says is 27min. It says you can lose up to 20lbs in 30 days, but I will be happy with 10lbs and much more toning. I also stared the Abs diet too, which I am trying to follow but chocolate calls my name so very much and it is so hard to say no... As a reward for doing this for 6 days Lori and I are going to get a Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry on Saturday! I can't wait!!!
In spite of language, in spite of intelligence and intuition and sympathy, one can never really communicate anything to anybody. The essential substance of every thought and feeling remains incommunicable, locked up in the impenetrable strong-room of the individual soul and body. Our life is a sentence of perpetual solitary confinement.
I will be doing this all weekend my lovelies... JK! Perhaps someday I will be able to do this, but I am guessing it's not going to be this weekend! Although, I do have yoga teacher training all weekend which should be super fun! And I imagine I will be watching some funny films as well as Eat, Pray, Love for the 100th time;) I also found a fiction book I love! It's called Various Flavours of Coffee by Anthony Capella, it is sooooooooo good! I imagine I will be reading a few pages of this also! Can't wait!!!
What do you have planed for this lovely weekend?
