Happy Monday! We had another weekend filled with lots of little things. You know, picking up, playing with Scout, installing new door hardware, playing with Scout, Target run, playing with Scout, etc. etc.
Saturday night was Megan’s last Snow Days dance. Cathy and Hunter came here first to get ready. I can’t believe these girls are Seniors! They have been friends since First Grade at St. Peters.
Scout got his last shots on Thursday, five of them, and he had a couple of accidents Thursday night and Friday night. I had to dig deep for another blanket for the kennel. I had the pink sueded side out but he quickly turned it over to the plush zebra print.
We took Scout to the Oakdale Nature Center Saturday morning for a long walk. It was raining and most of the trail was covered in slick ice. I think the walk was harder on Gary than Scout.
Scout has become more aggressive with his toys so it was time for a new teddy bear. We went up a size this time. He was so excited about his new friend.
I’m staying diligent with my eating habits but the weekends are hard. Especially when Gary eats cereal, toast and donuts for breakfast. This was my snack on Saturday and it totally hit the spot. (Does anyone say that anymore?)
I stopped at the wine store on my way home from work on Friday and picked up a couple of bottles. This one is tasty but really packs a punch! And the bottle is kinda cool too.
Not sure if I mentioned that we have a fish now. Actually, Amy bought a fish, brought him home for Thanksgiving break, and then left him here. His name is Marble and we have totally bonded. He likes to visit with me while I do the dishes.
I saw La La Land with Amanda on Sunday and I have lots of thoughts.
Throughout the entire movie I kept waiting to love it. I mean, it’s a musical! And it’s Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. But I never really loved it. However, I did love that it was a tribute to old Hollywood musicals even though it wasn’t a great musical itself. And I did love that it was a tribute to jazz music, and had some pretty good jazz music in it. And I definitely loved Emma Stone’s entire wardrobe (I can’t let go of the baby blue sweater she wore for her final audition). If you’re looking for a fun movie with a cute story, some singing and dancing, and maybe a little inspiration to follow your dreams, this fits the bill. Just don’t expect great singing and dancing, and the ending may stick with you for awhile.
Hope you had a great weekend too! See you back here on Wednesday for a little What’s Up.
