Our Weekend in Instagram Photos

1 | Valentine's Day!! I started the day by eating an absolutely absurd amount of sweets. It was no good (but oh, so good all at the same time!). After work John and I went to dinner then to see the movie Lone Survivor... It was a laid back, marvelous evening!

2 | Scout's standard Saturday morning nap in the sun (I often lay on the floor and sunbathe with her)... Gotta soak up the sun when you can!

3 | The weather on Saturday was so beautiful that John and I had a little lunch date on the Chick-Fil-A patio - let me tell you (originally from Michigan), 70 degree weather is something that I do not take for granted.

4 | Saturday evening we took Scout to the Cibola National Forest and did some hiking... If you couldn't tell, we are obsessed with our dog and think she should be model - look at that Vogue pose!

5 | There are few things that make me feel as pretty as a fresh manicure! I love gel, but it is so difficult to get off, so I opted for normal polish (although sparkles aren't a walk in the park either...).

6 | My small group Bible study started a couple weeks ago (we are doing Beth Moore's Breaking Free), so I have been trying (key word, trying), to get my homework done sooner than the night before (old habits die hard, I guess).

7 | Sunday afternoon John and I met our friends in the foothills of the Sandia mountains for some mountain biking. Girlfriend, it was tough. I am a pretty in-shape and athletically inclined person, and I was dying... DYING! I swear, I don't know how it happened, but the whole thing was up hill.

8 | The past few Sundays I have been doing some evening baking - I think it is nice to start Monday off with a little treat! I made carrot muffins with a cream cheese frosting... Yummy!

9 | And no Sunday night is complete without a glass of red wine and Downton Abbey!

  17. I've heard so many good things about Downton Abbey! Unfortunately, I've been so engaged with Netflix binging, I'll have to finish the other 50 shows I'm involved in before I can add another! Ugh.
