off to our mini vacation




So tomorrow morning we are going to Edmonton.. I know it is not the carribean, but I am actually exited to be getting away for few days. I have had the worst winter ever! We had sooooo much snow this year, and in Saskatoon snow means me staying home for few days untill the roads are driveable...and since it snowed at least once every single freakin week, I have been house bound for a long time. I even gained NINE pounds! Damn it! I have never gained this much weight when not pregnant in few months. I have been depressed and stressed out, so it nice to get away.
Hubby left his laptop at work, so we will not have a computer for THREE days! But I am glad, I have been spending too much time online so it will be a nice break.
Of course the main reason for our trip is still to buy pita and Arabic groceries. I think I will buy Jameed and make Mansaf, any tips on how to make it?? I have never made it before and have only eaten it three times.

mansaf is definitely worth it! I have no clue how is it done, hopefully will learn this soon, but I LOVE IT! it's my very favorite...

Hope you'll enjoy the vacation, great idea not to take the laptop. if the laptop is there it won't be called a vacation anymore :$
