Good days/ Bad days

Some days are good, really good. And yesterday was one of those days. I woke up early and took the dogs over to my friend's house. We went for a walk and had a good workout. I felt so good afterwards, and I was very proud of myself (you would be too if you know me). After our walk I came home and ate a yummy lunch. I was inspired to make awesome sandwiches and wraps thanks to a recent issue of Whole Living. I decided to try a wrap for the first time. I took a whole wheat tortilla and added hummus, roasted garlic cheese, and turkey. So good!

Once I got cleaned up I headed back out again. I stopped at Good Records to pick up the new Fleet Foxes album. I ended up getting a few 45s as well. Buying records makes me so happy. Then I drove to Plano to pick up a harness for Riley. She not a fan of harnesses, but it makes walking her a lot easier.

I was tired when I got home, so I laid down for a quick nap. Then I woke up and headed over to my friend's for taco night. Like I said, it was a glorious day.

Unfortunately today was not the same. My workout plans got cancelled and everything went downhill from there. It seems like I've been on the verge of tears all day, and I'm not sure why. But the entire day wasn't a bust. I did make the super cute cupcakes pictured above. I also picked up the new Sookie Stackhouse book. I cannot wait to read it! I wasn't too happy with the last book, so I'm hoping this book makes up for the last one. If you haven't read the Sookie Stackhouse series I definitely recommend it.

On a side note I wanted to tell you about my new favorite band. I saw this post on Liz's blog and decided to check out The Head and the Heart. I immediately fell in love with them and downloaded their album. Today I've been alternating between them and Fleet Foxes. I dream of a shady back yard with a hammock when I listen to them. So you should check them out :)

Play time

Last Saturday we had our carpets cleaned, so that meant the dogs had to hang out in the yard. I decided to turn it into a photo shoot. Riley loves playing with her outside toys, so I tried to get some action shots. I also got some good pictures of Roxie. She always hides from the camera, so it was exciting that she looked at the camera. And how cute are puppy tongues?!

Rainy Days


Today has been gloomy and wet, and all I want to do is curl up in bed. It always seems like that when I have a to do list a mile long. And it doesn't help that I was up until 4am sneezing and sniffling. I had every intention on getting up early and tackling my to do list, but I found myself waking up at noon to a dark room and a comfy bed. Luckily someone picked up my shift at work tonight, so I plan on getting stuff done. I have quite a few cakes coming up, so I have to get everything in order. I also have to plan out a menu for the week. Before I started working at Bucca I was eating well, but late nights have resulted in way too much fast food consumption. After reading an issue of Whole Living I was inspired to revamp my tired menu. I'm also excited to start a new workout regime. My friend is a stay at home mommy, so we decided to workout together during the day (since I mostly work at night). She just moved into the cutest little neighborhood not too far from me, so I plan on taking the doggies over and walking 3 times a week. It's just a start and hopefully will lead to more exercise.
