(Long) Weekending & Shizz [8-8]

I'm just coming off a long weekend that was 100% fantastic. I won't go into much detail because I'm lazy but I basically partied all weekend with family.  It was amazing.

+ All last week, family from all over the globe flew into Toronto for our huge reunion that was in the works for nearly a year so it was non stop visiting peeps I haven't seen in years and meeting those I've never met (my awesome 1st and 2nd cousins from England).  It was strange hearing English accents instead of Jamaican and I loved meeting/talking with them.  Most of the week consisted of late nights, lots of eating (like, LOTS of eating), laughs and jokes all the live long day.

when the fam is so huge, it takes several attempts to fit everyone in the frame.

+ I don't think I've ever eaten so much in my life but I don't get to eat fried plantain from the homeland too often so eat it I did.  I didn't even snap a pic because I inhaled them so fast #nomfuckingnom.

+ Kayla met her cousin for the first time and they became instant besties.

+ I met my bestie:

+ Brought my cousin and her husband to train at the gym (I'm holding pads for them).

+ I bought an adorable craft cart but when I went to move it behind my desk, I lifted up my recycling bin and found this monster waiting to attack:

In all my life here in Canada, I have never seen a spider this big...it's cold here so bugs usually don't get to this size and I'm not kidding when I say that it was as big as a toonie.  In a panic (after furiously messaging my husband to come home right fucking now), I messaged the Ahole Bros group and Nadine sent me this as my only option LOL.

+ But my craft cart:

+ Guys - this video. I shared this on Facebook with Amy because we're both savages and love watching hilarious vids of people making fools of themselves and falling down.  I think I watched this for a full 5 minutes because it's so fucking funny.

  2. I have anxiety just looking at that picture of the spider! It's freakin' Aragog from Harry Potter! Glad you had such an amazing time with family, and yessss to all the food :-D

  3. What the actual fuck is that spider, dear lord. That's an Australian spider, why is it in Canada?!

  4. YYAYAYAYAYAY for all the family. How wonderful everyone was able to get together. And I bet the food was amazing, I'm jealous. Also super jealous of the Muay Thai workout, I so badly wish I could come to your gym and have you kick my ass!
