Adventures!

It's Mondayyyy... whomp, whomppp!!
Although it's back to the grind, it's always easier after a little weekend R&R.
Here's what we've been up to recently!

***

Despite having lived in Arizona for 9 months, I just recently got a tour of John's building and office.  It was so nice to see where my hubby spends all his time at work... but, I will say that the man needs some office decor.

He doesn't even have a picture of me and Scout?! What the what?! Just kidding, but no really, I think I will be purchasing him a gold stapler to bling up his office a bit.  It's necessary.



This art is hanging outside of his office.  Is it just me, or does this art seem strange to be hanging in a law firm (and a firm where many are required to work long hours)? 

I get that art is all interpretive and stuff, so I will just chalk it up to "not getting it."  I can't imagine it was inexpensive either...



We recently went to a Phoenix Suns basketball game with one of John's coworkers and his wife.  We had a tasty dinner at The Arrogant Butcher before the game, and had a fun night out!



John and I have really been loving the weather lately.  
All of the cacti are blooming, and it is quite beautiful!



And the nice weather means evening hikes with Scout.  She loves it, we love it... it's a win all around!



John and I have been cooking dinner at home lately and are finally getting into a groove.  It's our third week, and each week it's getting easier.

We recently made the most yummy quinoa stuffed peppers... I will be sharing the recipe soon - easy and way tasty!



Preserve/ranch hunting season closes this coming weekend, so Scout and John went on one last hoo-rah... and they had a blast!  They got 5 chukar partridge and 2 pheasants.  This was Scout's first full hunting season, and we are just so proud of that girl - she even retrieved the chukars!



Our weekends have been busy, but they have left us with full hearts! The best kind of weekends :)

  4. I was an art history major in college and I don't understand that art haha. I was watching something on the news last night about how if you decorate your workplace it makes you happier at work. That office definitely at least needs a picture. :-) Glad that you had a nice weekend though and enjoy your day today! :-)

  9. What a great weekend- John's office looks so nice, but would definitely look better with a few photos and things :) The blooming cacti are so pretty and as always the weather looks so perfect!

  10. That's so odd that they would make THAT the Art work at a law office!!! So strange, ha! That picture of you and your pup is adorable! Aren't long walks the best?! I love anything to do with quinoa so I'm excited to try your stuffed pepper recipe!!

  11. John's artwork is depressing. I should show you some of the weird stuff that is hanging up around my firm. It is not much better. I cant wait for the weather to warm up around here so I can take some evening walks. I am so jealous of yours!

    Have a fabulous week!

  20. Looks like such a nice weekend! That art is so funny and yes that office could use some love! We went to a suns game last weekend, it felt like more of a show than a game, there was so much entertainment value! Glad you guys had a nice weekend :) Lucy

  23. Hi Lisa!

    I'm Somer and I'm glad I found your blog! It is so cute!

    Scout is so precious! I just started my own blog and would love for you and your followers to check it out! I thought you would be interested in reading my "Dog Behind the Blog" post, which tells a little bit about my doggie. I'd love to see your take on a post like this about Scout:)
