What a great weekend! Especially today, so I thought it was time for another edition of Sunday Smiles, where I take photos of all the things that made me smile today.
It started off with me taking Friday off so I could see CTLB who was out from Boston visiting SF. We only spent about 2 hours together, but it was so good to see her in person and catch up a bit. I’m hoping that the next time we see each other there will be a lot less of me for her to see!
I raced home from San Fran in order to set up the Lulu’s 1st birthday party. Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook might’ve already seen these photos, but for those who aren’t here are some highlights…
I didn’t expect to find puppy party supplies at the store I went to, but there they were, and of course I couldn’t resist.
I also made sure we had sweet treats for the puppies and the girls, too. The chocolate cupcakes are for the girls and the cookie cupcakes were for Lulu and Minnie.
And here are a few shots of the birthday girl herself, Miss Lulu.
This one is going to serve as a “before” photo someday soon.
And finally, you know it’s a good party when one of the pooches is pooped out!
Saturday was a nice day. LC and I went to Zumba, I did a bit of household stuff, and generally relaxed, but nothing really noteworthy happened, other than making The Best dinner .
Oh, I also got some new shoes which I absolutely love!!!
Yes, they are furry, too. They look just like Vans, but they’re from Payless Shoe Source. I got another pair in solid canvas black. So comfy and so sassy.
LC and I decided that we’re going to make going to the farmers market a regular part of our Sunday morning routine, so we started off there. The girls came along, too, and had lots of fun looking at all of the arts & crafts, flowers, and produce. I bought my new favorite – dino kale , as well as some savoy cabbage.
I’m always looking for a great plant for my dining table, and today I picked up a pretty, purpley-pinkish ranunculus.
Next up, we stopped at PetFoodExpress to get some food and a two-dog leash. I’ve been telling LC how difficult it is to take both dogs at once. And most of the time my parents and the kids come along, but some days they can’t/don’t want to, and I always feel badly about leaving Minnie out, so LC decided time to try a leash made for both of them. Here we are about to take off on our maiden walk.
I was definitely keeping my fingers crossed, but I never had anything to worry about:
And here’s a bit of video so you can see it in action:
And of course, since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, I spent a bit of time writing cards to my family:
Maybe next year I’ll have a true valentine to give a card to. If it’s right, it’ll happen.
A perfectly lovely day, not to mention the fact that I’ve resisted quite a few temptations this weekend and stayed 100% on Medifast (and it’s showing on the scale), but I’ll save that for the Wednesday Weigh-In post. All in all, lots of simple moments that put a smile on my face today.
