The Friday Five: 5 things I've been up to this week

This week was fairly busy for me with traveling—I headed to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan for my day job, where I visited quinoa fields and learned all about quinoa.

What I've been up to this week:

  1. Saskatchewan trip. I was there from Monday to Wednesday, and had to connect in Minneapolis on the way there (3-hour layover which went to 4.5-hours when my flight was delayed, yay ...) and Toronto on the way back. I can't say I'd EVER connect in Toronto again, as I had to go through maybe three different customs lines. My trip, though, was very fun, and I was put up in a suite at The James, which was maybe the nicest hotel room I've stayed at in quite a while. I had never visited Saskatchewan before, too (only Ontario), and it's very beautiful, especially by the river area.
  2. Eating delicious things. This week is Troy Restaurant Week, and I took my boyfriend to The Melting Pot on Sunday, for both TRW and an early birthday dinner for him. I went to Brio's with coworkers yesterday for TRW, and I had a ton of delicious meals on my Canada trip, as well.
  3. Planning to eat delicious things. I will be trying out Beau's Grillery next week, and will be back with a blog post and a $25 gift card giveaway for my local (Detroit-area) readers, so keep an eye out for that. 
  4. Walking and doing zumba. We started a "walking club" at work, and although attendance is hit or miss, myself and two coworkers try to walk Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Since I was gone Monday and Wednesday, I went for a walk today. I did zumba on Thursday night, as well. I've been trying to exercise more although there seems to never be enough hours in the day to do so.
  5. Catching up with friends. I saw three coworkers (two current, and one former) yesterday for TRW (Troy Restaurant Week), and I was texting with a high school friend of mine yesterday too. Sometimes life gets busy but it is always nice to reconnect with friends.
