Beautiful Weekend

January 30, 2012

Hi friends! Did you have a good weekend?  The rain let up over here circa Friday morning, and it’s been beautiful ever since.  We took advantage of the good weather with a trip to the botanical gardens this afternoon:

Dogs aren’t usually allowed at the gardens, but during January and February, they celebrate the “Dog Days of Winter,” and allow them to roam through the gardens! They even have a “no leash” field that functions basically as a dog park.  So fun! Our dogs definitely enjoyed their time at the gardens:

…although Baxter tried to take on a new owner when he discovered that another dog owner had treats in her purse.  He has no loyalty at all.

31 weeks and counting:

Dinners this weekend were healthy:

…but I promise, I have one of the best cookie recipes I’ve made in a lonnng time (and definitely NOT healthy) coming your way this week. 

Hope you had a great weekend!

      Well, you know, Baxter just kind of stands around looking at the other dogs. He lacks stamina also 🙂

    You look so good! Now that you have an actual baby-bump, do you wish you didn’t?? I’m always curious about that.
    Glad you had a nice, outdoorsy, sunny weekend!

      Haha…no, I’m glad I have it now. Ask me again in about seven weeks though 🙂

    Looks fun! We’ve always wanted to take our pup to a dog park, but she’s a pit and people are always funny about that :-/ For now, doggie play dates it is!

      Aw, I hate that– I’ve known some REALLY sweet pits!!!

    Oh my goodness that is my favorite baby bump picture. I am so happy for you and Ryan!

    This winter has been so oddly warm. Can’t say that I’m complaining though!

      Definitely!! I’ll take this over 20 degrees and snow any day! (although it does make me worry about how hot this summer might be…)

    Anna, you look amazing! I can’t believe you’re already 31 weeks! I am so excited for you two! I hope you have a great week and that the weather stays nice for you!

      Thanks Sarena!! I can’t believe it either 🙂

    You look fantastic my dear. Sounds like the perfect way to enjoy this oddly warm weather. It was 60 here yesterday. No complaints!
