January Weekending

After the busyness of the holidays, quiet weekends in January are always welcomed. Time to take the holiday decorations down and snuggle up at home to unwind. 

On Friday night, K and I went to Bonefish Grill for some dinner and drinks. Eating out on Fridays is something I always look forward to since we cook healthy dinners at home during the week.

On Saturday, we took Lola to her first puppy training class which went well. She learned different commands and caught on quickly but she was definitely the most rambunctious in her class which had a pitbull and two miniature collies.

We went for lunch after training at a dog-friendly restaurant and enjoyed sitting outside on the patio in the sunny 60-something weather.

Saturday night was spent at home watching Taken 2 and snuggling with Lola. Since Taken 3 just came out, I wanted to get up to speed before we go see the newest movie.

On Sunday, we headed to a friend's baby shower to celebrate the soon arrival of her son. It was a fun afternoon spent with friends and showering the mom-to-be.

The baby shower had a Dr. Seuss theme with green eggs & ham and lots of Dr. Seuss food and decorations and of course, she got tons of amazing gifts. 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

  6. The green eggs! I love it.

    We rarely eat out on Fridays but we don't cook either. We either pick something up or finish some leftovers. By Friday night I don't feel like doing anything.

  7. If Lola goes missing one day, I would highly recommend starting the search at my house. She is the CUTEST! Since the boxers are getting older, we've been talking about getting bulldogs next... I'm still trying to convince the Hubs that a Great Dane is also an awesome choice :)

  11. It was a beautiful weekend weather wise, and I'm glad the rain cleared up for the shower yesterday. Lola looks adorable in her puppy training, and if they gave out classroom superlatives she'd be most likely to get into mischief :)

  18. I am super jealous of your 60 degree weather! That's my favorite kind of weather. :) The green eggs and ham theme is so cute! Also, I loved taking my dog to puppy class. It's so fun to teach them commands and to see them interact with other puppies. :)
