MIMM: 11/05

by Meg on November 5, 2012

Good morning, loves! :)

I missed you over the weekend, but I took some time away from blogging for some very good reasons!

First of all, A Dash of Meg has a new look if you haven't noticed yet! :) Maren has been busy all weekend working on my blog, so that's why many of you had troubles accessing it over the past couple of days!
I hope you like the changes! It's not completely finished yet, so if you have any suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments section below or shoot me an email at adashofmeg@gmail.com :) 

The other reasons as to why I was away over the weekend tie into Marvelous Monday, so let's start the marvelous celebration now! 

I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with my new real-life friend, Jess

The weather was nice to us, so we were able to have all sorts of girl fun from Friday to Sunday when she stayed with me! :) 

We went to the gym and had two great workouts over the weekend!

I introduced her to her new favourite DAVIDsTEA, Organic Gold Rush

We had a movie night and watched Friends with Kids.

I took her to my favourite grocery store. 

And we tackled my closet! Jess was so kind and created some really cute outfits for me! :) She even inspired me to get creative on my own! I came up with this outfit all by myself this morning ;) 

I miss this girl already, but plan on making a trip to see her and a few other girls later this winter! :)

The last thing I want to mention for today's Marvelous Monday is the marvelous meal I had last night! 

Obviously it was seafood ;)

I went to Mandarin, a chinese buffet, for the first time with my friend last night! I'm not much of a "buffet person", but I loved it there! It was the perfect time for me to go there, too, because it was their "Crab Leg Event!" ;) 

They must have knew I was coming… 

I had a couple plates heaping with shrimp, crab legs, baked salmon, and mussels. Everything was phenomenal, but the salmon was my overall favourite! It's hiding under the crab legs some where in that picture above…

I really enjoyed being with friends this weekend :)kind of took the entire weekend off from university life, so I'm a busy girl this week! 

See you when time allows ;) 



What made your weekend marvelous?

What is marvelous about your Monday?

Your blog looks wonderful! Maren is marvelous. So jealous of your q-time with Jess! very impressed by your outfit this morning for sure. And of course by that SEAFOOD plate. Yummmy! I can't wait to eat my swordfish tonight. My seafood aversion is done-zo – thank goodness it was so short lived.

What'd you think of Friends with Kids?! I'm dying to know. I was going to give it a 9/10 until the last 20 minutes…UGH.
