Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend and is wearing green today!

Here's a quick recap of our weekend!


1 | Friday night ended with a yummy homemade shamrock shake! 

John and I are watching the final season of Breaking Bad (we have only one episode left!) so this shake was the perfect TV watching treat.

2 | This weekend I did an absurd amount of laundry, and it felt wonderful! Scout was, of course, very helpful in putting my clothes away. 

3 | John and I went for a mountain bike ride in the Cibola National Forest. It was nice because there weren't too many people out (me being a mountain biking newbie, this is very, very much appreciated!).

Mountain biking is fun because you are working hard, but you're not concentrating on how hard you are working because you are focused on navigating the terrain.

4 | John and Scout went on a hike in the Pecos Wilderness. There were blizzard like conditions, so needless to say, I declined to join. Little Scout had so much fun being crazy in the snow and was quite exhausted when she got home. 

We had a post-hike sushi dinner, and ordered (and ate) way more sushi than I would like to admit!

5 | This weekend John very sweetly surprised me with a new crafting tool from Hobby Lobby! He got me (and picked it out ALL on his own) this thing called Versa-Tool

It can burn into wood, hot stamp leather and fabrics, image transfer, etc. It's super cool! I have been playing around with it and started burning into a wood coaster. When I get better, I hope to make a set!

6 | On Sunday a John took a half day fly fishing trip to the Jemez mountains. The Jemez River was stocked with rainbow trout last Wednesday, so he was excited to go fishing (he also got a new fly fishing sling pack that he was looking forward to breaking in).
