Our Lives Lately!

Happy Monday! This weekend went by fast, but with Downton Abbey back on, Sunday nights aren't quite so bad! And the fun continues with Bachelor Mondays! Whoop whoop for "good" television!

Here's a quick recap of what we've been up to lately!

 
Hiking in Flagstaff
 
Recently, John and I took Scout for a snowy hike in Flagstaff.  That pup loves the snow, and it is so fun to watch her run around.  The snow is fun to walk around in, but I'm not going to lie, it is much easier to enjoy it knowing that we can come home to warmer weather!




Fall in January?

I seriously cannot get over how beautiful the weather has been lately. The summers are unbearable, but now I understand why so many people think it is worth it - come December it's a beautiful, long-term fall!  The leaves change colors and fall... and I've really been enjoying it!




Mearns quail hunting in Patagonia, AZ

John and Scout went hunting for Mearns Quail in the Santa Rita Mountains near Patagonia, AZ. It's pretty cool that he is able to drive a few hours and hunt these birds because people pay quite a bit of money to travel here for a guided hunt.  They had a blast and both were exhausted when they got home!




And while the hubby's away, the wife will... craft!

When I was growing up, I would always have a great time staying up super late making jewelry (party animal, I know!).  Since John was out of town hunting with Scout, I thought I would repeat the fun and stay up late making some stackable bracelets.  And I absolutely love how they turned out!  Super easy and inexpensive! DIY coming soon!

  20. WOW! You have been all over Arizona. You get out more than I do lol! I love the Patagonia area it is so pretty. If you ever get a chance try and check out all the wineries down in the Sonoita. Go during the spring or early fall when its green and grassy. It is gorgeous and doesn't even seem like Arizona.
