Five on Friday + Hunter Boots Giveaway

The weather this week has been incredibly beautiful - it makes being cooped up inside for work very difficult… I don’t know how I am going to manage working every day once the weather starts consistently staying this nice!!   

I’m looking forward to a weekend spent outdoors in the sun and warmth... and maybe even watching some of the Masters with the hubby!

Linking up for Five on Friday with Christina, April, Natasha, and Darci!


ONE

I’m pretty sure my dog thinks she’s a person.  Either that, or she thinks that John and I are dogs with her.  Either way, we are definitely all equals in her book.

John and I have started the terrible habit of letting Scout sleep with us in bed.  Since we both work during the day, she stays in her crate until we get home from work (aside from a 30 minute potty break at lunch).  We feel bad having her in the crate all day then back all night to sleep.

Since she has started sleeping with us, she insists on having her head right on the pillow and her body under the blankets.  It's super cute, but maybbbeeeee a bit much (just kidding, we totally love it!). 



TWO

This warmer weather means full-on grill mode, and the only natural addition to some good grilling is a fruity cocktail to sip on.

Here is a must-try! John doesn't care for vodka but he liked this one.


Raspberry Beer Cocktail

- 1/4 cup of raspberries
- 1 bottle of corona (12 oz), chilled
- 1/4 container of frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate
- Vodka to taste

Serve over ice and garnish with a lemon.  Makes 2 servings.



THREE

A Fresh Manicure

Hello, manicure… you were much needed - I feel more alive already! 

And now for a pedicure this weekend, and I will officially be ready for some sandal weather!



FOUR

Ruby Red Juice

This juice is so yummy… lots of carrots and the perfect splash of citrus!  Carrots are definitely my favorite vegetable to juice, so pretty much any recipe with carrots as the base is a win in my book!


- 1 grapefruit
- 1 lemon
- 7 carrots
- 1/2 inch of ginger



FIVE

Hunter Boots Giveaway!

April Showers Bring May Flowers, so along with 7 other girls, we are giving away a pair of “Original Tall” Hunter Boots!

  8. Love the picture of your dogs! My dogs also think they are busy and I feel so guilty that they are in a crate all day we let them sleep with us, too!

  9. That cocktail sounds DELISH! I wish my husband would let our dog sleep with us! He says she snores too loud. That might be true but we all deserve some extra cuddles!!! Happy weekend friend!

  10. For the exact same reasons, we started letting ours stay out of the crate at night. We bought them beds for our bedroom and everything. When I left this morning, one was at the foot of the bed and the other was curled up under the covers with his head beside my husbands head! Rotten! And what a fabulous giveaway! I've wanted a pair for months now!

  24. Everything tastes better in a mason jar! Obsessed with those poke-dot straws! I am glad to know that I am not the only girl who enjoys watching the masters :)

  25. Okay, your pup sounds just as spoiled as mine which makes me love your blog even more! She is precious! And that cocktail looks fabulous! Happy Weekend! xo

    ReplyDelete
  26. I really like your manicure! I've never tried carrot juice before, actually...I can't quite imagine how that would taste...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Bella is a bed sleeper too! Although she prefers to sleep at the foot of the bed, there are mornings that I wake up with her head on my pillow. Matt tells her every morning that she's the most spoiled dog in the world! Maybe Scout will give her a run for her money? The raspberry beer cocktail sounds delish and I'm totally going to pin it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love dogs who think they are people. They've got a special personality ;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. One of our dogs, our oldest, is a bed sleeper and has been since I brought her home 7 years ago. Luckily, she sticks to the foot of our bed. She's an excellent space heater, though!

    Grill season! Yay! I will definitely be pinning your cocktail recipe for once it warms up even more. Or for when we're grilling later this week ;)

    Stopping in from Five on Friday.

  30. So we finally used our juicer for the first time, and we used this recipe you gave here. But . . . like I told you a week or two ago, we're definitely new to juicing, so I'm wondering, do you have to remove the peels first? Because MAN that was a bitter juice . . . I'm fine with veggie-tasting juice, but bitter, not so much. Help! Haha :)

  33. One of my dreams is to have a dog who sleeps in my bed like that! Preferably a pit bull. Or bull dog. Or mastiff. Or pug... I'm going to need a GIANT bed...

    ReplyDelete

  40. Haha! My dogs are the same way! We recently had to start breaking one of them from the habit of sleeping with us because it got so ridiculous. Now they both sleep in their own beds, *sigh of relief*
