Total Basset Case: Besties, Bassets and Birthdays

Feb 16, 2015

Besties, Bassets and Birthdays

This weekend we had the pleasure of having Casey, Eric and Pierre (!!) in town to visit and celebrate Mister's birthday.
Fun is an understatement for the weekend.  We had been planning, counting down the days and looking forward to this weekend for quite a while.  We were excited to show them a few new places around town and spend time together with the bassets snuggled on our laps.  
Almost more than having precious friends stay the weekend, having two bassets trotting around makes me SO happy.  

Friday Mister and I snuck out of work early to greet our guests and get an early start on the weekend. 
We had a little mini tour of downtown and had a great time showing them Rhinegeist.
We had every intention of swinging by the store and picking up food for dinner.  But by the time we headed home we decided pizza and wine was a better option.  
Turns out it was.  Delicious pizza, fabulous wine and good friends around the table was the perfect way to end the night.

Saturday Casey and I hit up bootcamp to work off some of said wine and get a good start on the day.  We rounded out the morning with banana bread, multiple cups of coffee and, of course, basset snuggles.   
Saturday night we headed back downtown to Goodfellas Pizzeria for crafty cocktails  Again.  
It's a good thing we all love pizza because we sure had a lot of it.  Goodfellas knocked it out of the park.  The cocktails were SO interesting and delicious and the pizza was some of the best I've had in a very long time.  

As for the rest of the weekend, I will let the photos do the talking.  
Bassets in the sun warming their bellies warms my heart like none other. 

And a very, very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my handsome MISTER!! Floyd and I (and Pierre!) hope you have THE best day, you deserve it!

Bassets in the sun - classic! My parents' beagles have always been the same way. Sounds like such a fun weekend - love that you all have become such good couples friends. And came up with such good Cincinnati things to do! I seriously still need to get to Rhinegeist, and this Goodfellas sounds pretty amazing too. Add it to the list!

I need to try Goodfellas!! There is one in Athens and we haven't figured out if it is the same pizza or not...

Looks like a perfect weekend!!
