Mondayyyy, why do you always get here so quickly? I swear, I blinked and this weekend was over before I knew it! Is it bad that I'm looking forward to Friday already?!
It's been a while since I've shared what we've been up to lately, so here's a quick recap!
One of the things that was so great about living in Scottsdale was all of the delicious restaurants in the area, and we've been struggling finding ones that we are super jazzed about (that aren't Mexican food) here in San Antonio... well, we've officially added a restaurant to our "must go again" list!
The name of the restaurant is Bliss, and the atmosphere was great and the food was delicious - highly recommend! It was the perfect spot for our Valentine's Day dinner!
My 2016 travel bucket list included Big Bend National Park, and although I still haven't gotten a chance to make my way there, John and Scout went on a quail hunting trip. They had a great time and camped in the National Park. And thankfully, there were no encounters with large wild animals...
The terrain at Big Bend (and the surrounding areas) was very similar to what they are used to hunting in southern Arizona and they had an awesome time chasing quail through the desert.
This past weekend we basically hung around the house, and it was pretty magnificent. We've been having fun planning our trip to Alaska, and watching all sorts of National Geographic documentaries on the state - the research and planning is half the fun for us!
Saturday morning I woke up, and out of absolutely nowhere, our trees had started blooming! The weather has been so fantastic lately, and the blooms really made me excited and convinced that spring is officially here (this makes my warm-weathered heart happy)!
Lily had a vet appointment this weekend, and she is just as cute as can be. She is getting big quickly (she is 15lbs, which is kind of a lot considering she is only 3 months old and Scout is 25lbs full grown), and loves to play with Scout (and by play, I mean never ending pestering!).
Sunday afternoon we went with our friends from our church small group to the San Antonio Rodeo and Stock Show! And to say I loved it would be an understatement... like, I wish John was a cowboy (actually, not really, but maybe wear a cowboy hat).
The San Antonio rodeo is a big deal, and being a first timer, it was super fun to learn about all of the different events. Without a doubt, the little kid mutton bustin' was my favorite event. :)
After each day at the rodeo they host a concert, and on Sunday Old Dominion was playing. They did a great job, and it was fun to see someone we actually knew (this year they have everyone from Martina McBride to Jason Derulo to Toby Keith... so you don't really know what you're going to get!).
The weekend closed just the way I like it... with relaxing and puppy cuddles - can't get enough!
