A Quick Weekend Recap in Pictures

Happy Monday! Here's a quick recap of our weekend in pictures.

Saturday morning John and Scout went quail hunting and got their first wild Gambel's quail! 
Whoop, whoop! Go team, go!


They then came home and cleaned the bird together in our kitchen sink... yes, I know - not ideal.  John cooked the quail for lunch, and it actually tasted okay (however, John would tell you that it tasted amazing).  Scout is trying to get in on all the action!


After our "first" lunch (a few bites of quail), we headed to a Mexican restaurant called The Mission.  The guac... to die for! I swear, I would order that for my meal and be totally satisfied.

John's dad and step-mom are coming to visit us in less than a month, and John has made it his mission to try as many Mexican restaurants as possible in preparation for their arrival to show them the best place in town (and as you can imagine, there are quite a few good ones in Arizona).


After lunch I got my hair cut and colored! And I feel alivveeee again! (Picture above is pre-cut and color.)  I know I keep talking about the "lob" (long bob), but I'm just not quite ready to go there yet.  I'm thinking that it might be a really great new hairstyle for 2015.  We will see...

We closed the weekend with a beautiful sunset walk in the McDowell mountains.  The Arizona landscape is something else, and sure is beautiful!

  2. What a beautiful sunset picture!! Sounds like a great weekend. I want to cut my hair into a long bob too in the next few months, and I'm a little apprehensive as well! And I can eat guac as a meal too, so good!

  4. I definitely think you should go for a lob in 2015! It'd look so cute! I'm getting one done during Thanksgiving - although mine won't be much of a change lol

  6. Way to go Scout! I'd need Mexican after a bite or two of quail myself. I'm not a big fan of 'weird' meat - ha, not sure what else to call it. I like chicken. I'm boring.

  7. Oh my... my vegetarian ways made me instantly go "poor quail"... but I know you've worked hard on training your dog to do just that.

  19. That sunset is to die for! And Scout is so cute trying to get in on the action. I totally feel you with the long bob. I've been debating something similar with my hair but it's taken me forever to get it this long!
