Total Basset Case: Weekend Wrap Up : Spring Has Sprung

Weekend Wrap Up : Spring Has Sprung

We had a very busy and productive weekend!
Lots of celebrating for Floyd's birthday and lots of accomplishments around the house.
And lots of wine and cheese on the porch...my favorite part.

Friday I managed to get home a little earlier from work and took Floyd on his usual walk.
I told him we could walk wherever, sniff whatever and be gone for as long as he wanted for his birthday.
He meandered for about 20 minutes and then drug me over to a tree and promptly sat down for a good solid 15 minutes and just sniffed the air.  I think he would have stayed there all day.
I mean, I told him he could do whatever he wanted and he sure took advantage of that.  I love how much he loves to be outside and just take in the smells, it makes my heart happy.
The only downside was that before we left I raked my hand in one of our flower beds to get some weeds out and got stung by something.  So the longer we sat by the tree, the larger my finger/hand swelled.  Floyd did not care about that one bit.  
Floyd's evening was rounded out with nuggets from Chick Fil A and a cake baked by his mama. 
(sneak peek at our new rug...more that later this week!)
He throughly enjoyed both.
He also got a new collar from Harry Barker...he looks very spiffy in it. 

Saturday was full of bootcamp, an Ikea trip and other random errands. 
Ikea is conveniently (and dangerously) close to our house.  Why we decided to go on a Saturday is a mystery to me but it was a good trip nonetheless!
Saturday evening I picked up a Redbox (Birdman...I didn't love it) and some cheese and wine.
When it is nice out we do our best to spend as much time as possible outside.
Wine and cheese on the porch with my boys is one of my most favorite things in life.

Sunday we did lots of house work and crossed a big item off our 2015 list!
I painted an accent wall in our kitchen and we LOVE it...more on that later this week too!
We closed out the evening with more wine and cheese and our first grilled burgers of the season.  

Hope everyone had a great weekend and got to enjoy this fabulous weather!
