|Top to bottom, L to R: Starting the weekend in my backyard//Winnie in her bandanna//A cardinal in my tree//A dying daffodil//Margaritas for a good cause//Raised gardens for my deck|
Happy Memorial Weekend everyone! After a busy week, I am so ready for a long weekend.
It's been said that Minnesotans are crazy about the weather, so I'm staying true to my home state when I say this weekend was awesome because the weather has finally turned nice here! Hello high-70s! With the nice temps, I got my green-thumb going and potted some plants and bought some starters for the raised gardens my husband built me out of a 55-gallon drum!
This week was Winnie's second to last puppy class (before she begins Puppy 2). She has made leaps and bounds since starting class and can now "sit", "down", "come" and she's sort of grasping "heel". Aside from class, Winnie had lots of fun this week playing outside and getting a spray down with the hose! I also felt a couple loose teeth in her mouth, so in no time she'll begin teething!
On Thursday, Jake and I attended the South of the Border soiree, a benefit for the American Red Cross. It was a really great event, and I was happy to donate my money after hearing stories of how the Red Cross helped a coworker of mine when her house burned down earlier this year. It really is a cause worth donating to.
Friday we spent with friends, eating at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant (shrimp and veggie lo mein... mmm!!) and then we went out for a round of drinks. It's always nice to get together with old friends, especially at the start of the weekend. Saturday brought even more yard work, errand running, and a friend's wedding reception to cap off the evening. Today brings much of the same!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your long weekend - we'll catch you back here on Monday!
