Total Basset Case: Winter Weekend

Jan 18, 2016

Winter Weekend

Complete with hearty soup, snow and freezing temperatures, we had quite the winter weekend at our house.

Friday I had some PTO to use up so Floyd and I spent the day together cleaning and visiting the vet for a check up.  The hefty hound weighed in at a generous 56.3 lbs.  Which is quite high for him.  So naturally I took him directly to get chicken nuggets after we were done.  I mean, I had already promised them to him and I couldn't go back on it ;)

That evening Mister and I snuggled up with this soup and it was amazing.  I suggest you add it to your rotation immediately.  Plus it made a TON, double winner in my book.  

Saturday I hit up Pilates and then bootcamp and rounded out the morning with HomeGoods for good measure.  Not that I need a thing, but they have the cutest Valentine's Day stuff right now.  I did snag some cute napkins because they were just necessary... 
The rest of the day was pretty low key.  I finished 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' (cute! I can't wait to read the next one). 
Saturday evening Mister and I did some shopping and grabbed some comfort food from Dickey's BBQ.  
A TOTAL splurge for me but it was deeeelicious.  
We spent the rest of the evening catching up on Narcos.  

Sunday morning Floyd and I woke up early and had some coffee and snuggle time. 
I started 'Crazy Rich Asians' - its good so far! 
Then it was off to church a manicure and the couch the rest of the day.
Floyd and I quickly resumed our snuggling.
This cold weather just calls for snugglin'.  

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

That food is making my mouth water! Sometimes I wish it snowed more here...but then I really like the 65 degree days we are having :)

I want all the soups in the world right now, so I will definitely add that one to my must-try rotation!!

Okay, I want that food. NOW. IMMEDIATELY. Even though we just ate Maui Mikes. I have been cheat meaning like crazy and the madness needs to stop! I'm (hopefully) back on track this week with some healthy meals planned :)

So many good things! Excellent reads (I hope you do like the follow-up to Harold Fry - I thought it was even better), yay for PTO, and mmm that BBQ looks good. Also: Floyd weighs as much as Ginger! That's funny.
