Totally Random Friday – April 10th

Another Friday. Even though it was a short week, it still seemed to take awhile for Friday to get here. We seem to be having a bout of colds/flu running through our house which is making the days feel long but at least everyone is sleeping through the night.

HomeMovieLast weekend was Easter weekend and our cousins came to visit and we all went to see Home. It was hilarious. Borrow some kids or take your own, you must see this movie. Jim Parsons, from The Big Bang Theory is in it and is so funny. Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez voice the other two main characters. I was a little nervous about taking four girls, ages 7, 5, 3 and 2.5 to sit in a theatre for 90 minutes but they were total stars. Although the littlest one couldn’t decide whether she wanted to sit with Grandma or Mom and changed laps a few times. The five year old rivalled me in how much popcorn she ate (and I love popcorn). I’m also totally loving the soundtrack. Check it out here.





We also went shopping and swimming and I only got one picture.

It doesn’t even have all four of them in it! Ugh

It’s definitely spring and I’ve definitely wrecked all of my $20 umbrellas. It was time to invest in a new umbrella and I knew exactly which one I wanted.

This is Shopping Weather from Cheeky Umbrella.


I bought these three Cheeky Umbrellas for my bridesmaids back in 2011 and they have all told me since what great umbrellas they are. I also loved how they fit in the pictures. The pink one says, “It’s raining, it’s pouring, other umbrellas are boring.” The yellow one says, “When does it start raining men?” and the blue one says, “I like umbrellas in my cocktails.” While none of them are still available on the website, she has many other cute ones, perfect for wishing the rain away.

Hubby and I went on a date night a couple of weeks ago (shocker, I know). We checked out the new sushi restaurant on Pembina, Kimchi Sushi South (in the old Sushi Train location). It was good. They had our favourite red wine by the glass (Apothic Red) and the service was relatively quick. My only complaint was that our rolls showed up before our appetizers. There was also a small problem with our bill but that was quickly taken care of.

Then, we went to Thermea. Wow… just wow. It is an outdoor hot springs spa. There is a hot pool, a warm pool, a cold pool, a sauna, two steam rooms and two relaxation rooms. You can also book a massage (in advance) and eat at the restaurant. It is definitely a high class establishment that Winnipeg has been missing and it is extremely popular since it opened just before Christmas. I highly recommend it for date night, girls’ night out or even a relaxing afternoon by yourself. They do not allow pictures or even cell phones out on the pool deck so despite my best attempts to get some covert ones, I only have one of the lobby to show you.

What’s new with you? Happy Shopping!
