Weekend Wrap Up: Lovin' Summer

We were home again this weekend, with 0 plans and I was in heaven.
I am really, really loving summer at the moment.

Friday after work came in with a bang and an awesome package on my door step. 
Luna bars for DAYS! (review coming soon!)
I immediately snarfed one of those down and went out for a run.
Friday night we watched a movie and snuggled the pups.
We were watching my mom's dog Sophie and her and Floyd both decided they needed to be on Mister's lap.

Saturday Floyd helped me with a DIY project (reveal coming soon!) out in the garage. 
He's supppper helpful.
And by helpful I mean, laid on the floor in the garage and watched me.

Saturday was also the big hair day!
I really loved my new hair girl and the way it turned out!
Cincy ladies if you need a new hair place, let me know and I'll send you her info, she is awesome! 
Saturday night Mister and I had a date night!
We hadn't hadn't had an official 'let's get dressed up and go to dinner' date in a few weeks. 
I was so excited to do just that and have a fun summer night out with Mister.
We tried a new (to us) place in Hyde Park called 'M'.  
It blew us away.
Mac and cheese with braised ribs and truffle, truffle fries, bacon and fig pizza, burger with black garlic name a few things we tried.
Floyd and I also hit up our respective pools over the weekend.
Well I did. Floyd never willingly got in his but he did use it as a big water bowl.

And that's a wrap on another summer weekend.
How was yours?!

Love, love your hair! And your date night outfit!

Candice Williams said...

I love your hair!! Can't wait to read about the Luna bars. I always do protein bars but have never tried those!

Unknown said...

Your outfit for date night was STELLAR, high five!! Glad you had a nice relaxing summer weekend!!!!!

Casey said...

I just spent a hot minute reviewing M's website - how is it that I'm ready for dinner now at 8:30 am? I do believe I see a twinge of jealousy on Floyd's face there in Dad's lap ;)

Unknown said...

Cute dress for date night! As much as my Gus loves water, whenever I set up a pool for him, he uses it as a big water bowl too. Silly puppies.

Chelsea E. said...

A) LOVE the hair B) That food looks amazing C) Floyd's face while laying on your husband is the best. That's Wal's favorite snuggle position with dad too. D) Walter despises water and does the whole "I'm dying of a heat stroke" thing but won't get in. I wish he'd learn! Clearly he's not the only confused hound dog!

Because Shanna Said So said...

Isn't getting your did the best thing? It makes you feel like a new person! Can't wait to see the project you worked on with Floyd! LOL!!!

Sarah Tucker said...

Truffle fries? Yum! Can't wait to see the DIY project!

Betty said...

Dudley is the same about his pool as well. We have to throw his toys in for him to 'rescue.' BTW, your date night outfit is super cute and that food looks delicious!

Kait said...

I love the updated hair and the sassy faced Basset. Also, LOVE THAT DATE NIGHT OUTFIT! OH la la!

Anne said...

Oooh, good you tried the fig pizza - great, right? The mac & cheese is too. And yay for success with new hair people - always scares me to try someone new, but it turned out great :)

Katie said...

I'm obsessed with your outfit! You look amazing. Lol, I'm determined to get a baby pool for Brutus this year to see if he enjoys it. He will probably pull a Floyd and not get into it.

Lisa @ Naptime Chai said...

Everything about your weekend looks fantastic - I'm glad date night was such a success!

Amber Marie said...

Love some Luna Bars! They get me through my shifts at the's so hard to carry out all that delicious food while you're starving!

Hair looks like a beautiful success!

Date outfit is just lovely!

Whitney Ellen said...

Welp, I was trying to stick to being slightly healthy today but I feel like you just ruined that because now all I can think about is mac and cheese... mac and cheese. Nommm.

Danielle said...

Haha! Floyd cracks me up!

k8te said...

LOVE your new 'do! so cute! and that food sounds amazing!!

Jen said...

Love the new highlights! Oh and that pic of Floyd and his pool crack me up. I had thought about getting a pool for my pups but I don't think they would get in either. They would probably do the same. Happy Monday!

Kathrin@shopschoolsleep said...

Allison said...
