weekend round-up

This weekend was pretty much spent waiting for it to be Saturday so Marc could take me out on our hot date. So Friday we didn't do a whole heck of a lot - so much so that I don't even remember what we did at all. We were babysitting my parents' dog all weekend though - the first lady of dog-love in my heart, my Mina. So we picked her up Friday and pretty much spent the night corralling Sadie so she wouldn't drive poor Mina too crazy. Mina is about 100 years old and therefore has no patience for an exuberant 7 month old puppy. God bless her old lady heart...

Saturday was Dogs=Awesome time and we were lucky enough to have some new faces come out! One of whom is an actual for-real photographer who managed to capture some really great shots of the dogs in action. These pictures make Sadie and her best rough-and-tumble boxer friend Soup look like they're fighting to the death but rest assured it looks worse than it is.  There's no place in the world Sadie has more fun that at this doggy gathering.  

That picture is classic Dogs=Awesome.  Poor Murray has no idea what's about to happen to him.  

Thanks to Debb Trahan-Pero for all the great pictures!!!!  Be sure and click through to her blog for more of her great pics!

Moved on from doggy playdate fun to boring errand running, blahbitty blah blah.  Then date night!!  Yay!!   As I've complained about to anyone who'll listen, Marc's been crazy busy playing with The Saltcoats, playing with his soon-to-be renamed girl band and scoring our friend Ben's new short film.  I've been living the life of a single lady lately.  To take advantage of a break in the schedule he took me out for a lovely dinner out at Bella Vita Cucina where we ate like kings and drank a truly great bottle of wine.  I love me a date night!!!

Sunday we slept off our bottle of wine and took the dogs out for a walk where we were found by just the sweetest stray dog.  She came with us on our walk and after about 2 hours of trying to find her home, she just came home with us while we tried to check in with the local animal shelter.  Thankfully she was micro-chipped so hopefully she's now made her way home to her family.    What a sweet doggy.  Once that was all over we were finally able to get dinner ready for my folks who were coming home.  Marc made a crazy delicious dinner of roast beef, roasted asparagus, blended sweet potatoes and new potatoes with roasted garlic and parmesan cheese and giant fluffy Yorkshire puddings with HOMEMADE CREME BRULEE FOR DESSERT!!!!  What???? Yeah you read that right.....I married that guy.  Thank the heavens...
