Happenings!

John and I have been so busy lately, and well, the summer doesn’t really look like it’s going to be slowing down anytime soon.  Here’s a quick look at what we’ve been up to lately.

The weather has been getting a little steamy, so to escape the heat we have taken a couple of fly fishing trips to Tonto Creek and Horton Creek.  John does the fishing and I basically just hike around with Scout, but we enjoy being outside and exploring!



Speaking of Scout, John and I were proud parents this month as she was selected as “dog of the month” for the day camp that we send her to.  Basically this means that we pay them way too much money, but whatevs, we were proud parents anyway! 

John’s law firm hosted a food tour of Downtown Phoenix for attorneys and their spouses, and it was great fun!  Basically, we had a tour guide who took us to 5 different restaurants for food and drinks and told us about historical spots along the way.  It was fun getting to learn more about the city and chatting with his colleagues… not to mention to food and drinks were quite tasty!  It was my first food tour, and I will definitely look into these next time we travel!


I’m all about a feel good movie, and McFarland USA was definitely that.  John and I had a date night in with a little wine and cheese and we enjoyed watching the movie.  I don’t even remember it being out in the theaters, but it’s definitely worth seeing if you look for a quality movie with a positive ending.



And of course, my schedule would not be complete without a little Bachelorette action!  
Any thoughts on this season?  I'm not super into it yet... it has all seemed a little haphazard.
 Now that Tony and Clint have left, I feel like the majority of the major weirdos are gone (which I always appreciate).  Any thoughts on Nick’s return?  I say let him stay!
 
 
 
John and I are hoping to do some backpacking this summer, and we finally broke down and bought me a pack!  I look forward to using it... hopefully a few times this summer!

  2. Aww, congrats to Scout! I loved seeing the bachelorette in NYC, though I was sad because when they were filming here, I had an opportunity to attend the rap battle date but couldn't go because of work! At least I finally got to see how it played out, haha. Happy Friday!

  4. Congrats to Scout, that's so cute! We can't really get into this session of the bachelorette. We find ourselves flipping back and forth between other shows when it's on. The rap battle was interesting though. Maybe it will draw us in as the season goes on.

  12. Omg I die over scout's picture… happy doggy mom! I am a fan of the super country guy on the Bach, I forget his name though. I also like the tall, dark haired guy she had the one-on-one with in the "haunted house". I seems reasonably normal. Happy weekend lady!

  24. that first picture is so pretty!!! Also, not a fan of nick in general but definitely on the let-him-stay side because she seems like the kind of person to regret not exploring the "what if"
