Happenings!

After eight days in Arizona for work, I'm finally back home in Texas... and just in time for my birthday! Officially 28, y'all! 

I would love to talk about all the great times we had celebrating this weekend, but honestly, after being away from home for the last week, all I wanted to do was hang around the house and spend time with John and the pups - that's perfection in my book!

Here's a quick look of what we've been up to the past few weeks (and here's to hoping the rest of the year slows down a bit... yikes!).

***

I left for Arizona last Friday, and I was not looking forward to being away from our cute new pup... I don't think she could be any sweeter! And poor John, I asked him to send me pictures of her every 5 minutes (he finally told me no more, haha).


Although I was very busy with work while in Arizona, I was able to squeeze in some of my favorite things (food related, of course...). Iced tea and tons of tacos - I was a happy, well fed girl!


While everyone else was braving blizzards this past week, I was enjoying the beautiful 70 degree weather. And as pretty as snow is, I wouldn't trade the sunshine for anything... I am a warm weather girl!


While I was away, John took Scout hunting, and I just have to brag on this pup... she is little, but she is very hard charging - go, Scout go!


Scoutie riding shot gun!


And John was also able to squeeze in a little fly fishing on the Guadalupe!


Arizona is always good to me, but after a week or so, I was ready to head home and see my man! And sleep in my own bed. And do laundry. And use my own shampoo. You get the point...


I was greeted by these two cuties who seem to be warming up to each other quite nicely - with close monitoring, of course...


Although I was really only interested in lounging around for my birthday, we did make our way out of the house to see The Big Short and have a tasty dinner out - can't go wrong with that!


Tonight I plan on eating massive amounts of cake and drinking wine, all while watching the Bachelor... can't think of a better way to bring in a new year of life?! ;)

  12. It sounds like you had the perfectly chill birthday this weekend! The Big Short looks like such a great movie, I want to see it so bad! And don't worry, I always ask my parents or my husband to send me lots of pictures of my pup when I'm out of town! I'm always hoping that he doesn't forget me!
