hiatus

As you may or may not have noticed, it has been almost a week since my last post… the longest hiatus I believe I have taken since starting this blog in May.  It was completely unintentional – last Thursday I worked and then went to yoga, and by the time I got home there was just enough time for dinner, a shower, and then bed.  Friday through Monday are a holiday weekend blur – fun times with family and not so fun times with allergies!  And of course after a 3 day weekend, work has been just oh-so-enjoyable.  But, this past Monday marked my first ever PAID holiday!  I loved the fact that I could sit around watching Man v. Food and get paid for it – marvelous ;).

Other things I did this weekend?

Indoor rockclimbing – first time ever!

And I actually made it to the top a few times!

Sailing – and lost my favoritist sunglasses… they didn’t even make it a month with me, oi.  Lake Michigan, I hope you enjoy them.

Sheboygan County Fair

Yes, it included monster trucks!

And some Hot Wisconsin Cheese for the cousins!

Even though I didn’t blog yesterday, I was still surprisingly productive!  Room + bathroom cleaned, sheets + towels laundered, front lawn mowed, almond butter made… and I have also set a few changes in motion for my blog that will be revealed shortly… super discrete, I know ;).  But I am excited for the changes and will be busy making everything perfect over the next few days!  So I will be on continued hiatus until the changes are made – but then I will be back and be better than ever!  Well, if everything goes correctly haha.

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!  I can’t wait until Friday afternoon gets here ;).

a dozen years old

Time certainly does fly.  I cannot believe my little pup, Crosby, is TWELVE years old already!  Well, he rung in his dozenth year quite well – pretty sure I’ve never had a birthday that could top this one ;).

Birthday Morning Pancakes (Funfetti Style with Sprinkles!) in the shape of his face… or hearts.  You can choose.

He went sailing – although I don’t think he would actually pick this activity on his special day… he still got some quality snuggle time with Kinley!

One particularly gluten free friendly restaurant allows dogs on the porch – but more on this later!

Yes, he got his own birthday cake… the main reason was actually Kin and I have had an incurable sweet tooth lately.  Well, I am happy to say it is cured (and there’s still some in the freezer for later!).

Finally?  On his actual birthday (the 29th), he had Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting.  Yummm – and decorated with hemp seeds!

This little guy is definitely sad his birthday weekend is over.  But we’ve got a THREE day weekend coming up to spend some more quality time with the old man!

Aren’t we are such horrible pet owners?!
