Today’s workday ended on a good note when I got a call from Ryan saying he wasn’t working late tonight. That meant we would have ample time to head to the dog park with Sadie!
It’s been a while since we’ve paid a visit to the ol’ park, and Sadie was ready and rearin’ to go!
Is that the face of a happy dawg or what?
Sadie’s face wasn’t the only happy one at the park tonight…
After I snapped this picture of Ryan he said, “I feel like Pig-Pen!”
He wasn’t lying. The noseeums were out in full force tonight!
I can’t wait until the weather cools off a bit and the pesky bugs are gone. They attack me every time I go outside to take pictures of my food in our backyard. Not fun. The only thing I like about them is watching baby ducklings jump into the air to try to eat them with their little beaks. Adorable!
We played with Sadie at the park for just under an hour before heading home for dinner.
Tonight was quite the unusual night: I wanted something cold for dinner.
A “throw a little bit of everything in a bowl” salad sounded good to me!
My salad included:
- 1 large red pepper
- 1/2 medium zucchini
- 1/2 plum tomato
- Large handful shoestring carrots
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 3 oz. shrimp, chopped
- Kraft Light Asian Toasted Sesame dressing
It hit the spot!
Pumpkin, Pumpkin Everywhere!
Not only are pumpkin spice beverages available at Starbucks now (I have a serious obsession with light pumpkin spice Frappuccinos), but other places are stocking up on fall decorations, treats and more.
Check out the lovely autumn display I saw at Bath and Body Works this evening when I stopped by to nab some soap for our kitchen:
I spent a good 20 minutes smelling all of the fall-scented candles. A new favorite: Creamy pumpkin.
I absolutely adore the smell of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Any candle that combines those scents is a winner in my book.
Here’s hoping grocery stores begin stocking canned pumpkin soon…
I’m off to update our wedding registry and add some new dish towels to the list because
Ryan someone burnt a hole in one of our nice ones tonight.
See ya on FRIDAY morning!
