Total Basset Case: Weekend Wrap Up: Just me and the boy

Weekend Wrap Up: Just me and the boy

Floyd and I had a weekend to ourselves. 
The Mister was away at a boys weekend, doing boy things like drinking beer and playing corn hole.
And I don't want to know what else.

Floyd and I embraced our weekend alone together.
And by that I mean we slept in the middle of the bed all weekend.
Friday night we made dinner, drank some wine and did a photography tutorial online.
Floyd was enthralled with it all.
We I really enjoyed it and thought it was very worthwhile.  
It only took me about 2 hours to complete and really taught me some essential (clever, huh?) skills that I feel I can really build on.  
I first heard about this class from Jenni @ Story of My Life.
She has often talked about how helpful, easy to follow and informative the class was.
I have to agree wholeheartedly.  
I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to learn more about photography and navigating their DSLR.  
The explanations, diagrams and examples are very easy to follow and comprehend. 
Saturday we took some walks, visited Floyd's girlfriend Pepper and I hung out with Bethany.
 Bethany and I did some shopping and I scored an adorable black leopard skirt from one of my favorite consignment shops.
While checking out, I noticed the lady helping me was wearing an adorable blouse...that had BASSET HOUNDS ON IT!
I immediately interrogated kindly asked her where she had gotten it from and if it was current.
Yes and yes were the answers.
She purchased it from the Tommy Hilfiger outlet super close to my house.
I googled it when I got home and found it online! 
 I mean, seriously!
I need that!!
I emailed it to Casey and she also found this one at Macys.
 Who knew there was so much basset apparel out there?!
I mean, have they seen my blog name?! I think they should just give it to me!

Saturday night I had dinner with Katie and Derek at Mac's Pizza Pub (SO good) and got to hear all about their recent trip to Italy! 

Sunday I had a delicious brunch at Annabels with Liz, Lauren and Anne!
It was so nice to see the ladies and catch up!
The Mister came back in the afternoon and we took advantage of the rainy weather and took Sunday afternoon naps and made soup.
Great fall afternoon in my books!

How was your weekend?

Linking up with Sami Dana and Leeann.

Pleeeease get both of those shirts! I love fun, quirky stuff like that and obviously those are PERFECT for you! I just got a shirt w/ Zebras on it from H&M. Actual zebras, not a print.. haha! I love it :)

Anne said...

Sounds like you were pretty successful at entertaining yourself for the weekend :) Dog companions always help of course. And breakfast was so fun (and delicious)! Great to see everyone.

Now I'm off to look for clothes decked out with labs... the bassets are just too cute.

I have J.Crew Basset rainboots and bought Jesse (2 pairs of, in case of loss or destruction) J.Crew Basset boxers.

Jen said...

Oh my love those blouses! You totally need them! I'll have to look into that course. I want to get a new camera and will surely have no idea how to use it. Ha!
