Welcome To Winnipeg

Wednesday Jan 10th

After a late night of packing and cleaning the house (because that’s what you do before traveling) I awoke at 5:30 am and we left for the airport.

Mom and I took the 1.5 hour flight to Winnipeg in order to meet up with her sisters for a girls trip ☺️

Our first stop was one I’d been dreaming of… going to Jenna Rae Cakes.
I’d been following them on Instagram for a couple of years, drooling over the pictures and awaiting the day I’d be able to test the sweet treats and hoping beyond, that they’d be as good as I’d made them up to be in my head 😉

The storefront was perfect 👌🏻

The box of treats quickly filled 😏

We waited on the taste testing because we needed real food, which we found at ‘Saucers’ right next door.
Mom and I shared a super tasty gnocchi dish with chorizo sausage and tomatoes.

I’ve never had gnocchi that was that light and fluffy before, not even in Italy 😂

Saucers Cafe

Onward we traversed, having time to kill until we could check in at the house Mom had found for us to stay on Airbnb.
The weather was not looking pleasant for our stint to the city and the few steps between car to store, were at least three too many 😜

We met the other two aunts/sisters and got to work exploring the super nice, new, modern house that we’d call home for the next four days.


Tre visti was the chosen place for dinner and we were all very pleased with our assortment of Italian dishes 👌🏻🍴

Tre Visi Cafe

After we stuffed ourselves to a pleasant point, or maybe a little beyond, we went to Next Level Escapes  to immerse ourselves in a western bank robbery/cash recovery 😉💰

We got out of the room with 2 and a half minutes to spare! ⏳
Some of us hadn’t been overly thrilled about the group activity but once we were done, all had enjoyed it and it’s a recommendation for sure 😄👍🏻

After that, it was directly to the house and bed, knowing we would be having a full trip ahead 😉

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
