Another thing that has me pumped for the fall? Ryan and I are in the process of planning a long weekend trip to Asheville in October and we’re hoping we can convince a few of our out-of-town friends to join us. After checking VBRO.com, we were surprised to find inexpensive rates for cabin rentals which makes the trip even more appealing! (If you’ve ever rented a cabin in the Asheville area and have a recommendation on where exactly we should stay, I’d love more info!)
Lots of fun stuff coming up!
After barre, I grabbed coffee (it will be lovely to have a coffee maker at home again soon!) and headed home to make breakfast. On the menu for today was a bowl of Chex gluten-free oatmeal topped with cinnamon and peanut butter.
And yes, the oats simply served as a vehicle for a big ol’ scoop of peanut butter.
I love that stuff so darn much. And so does Sadie. I swear her hearing ability kicks into high gear when she hears me start to open the peanut butter jar. She’ll be fast asleep on the couch but sprint into the kitchen when she hears that familiar sound.
Other sounds that psych her up? Opening a can, the doorbell, the fire alarm (she howls!), pressing buttons on the microwave and a squeak noise coming from of one of her toys. Sadie is actually kind of goofy about squeaking toys. She likes to squeak them but if Ryan or I squeak one of her toys, she gets this pitiful look on her face (see below) and grabs the toy, carries it into a corner and gently licks it for five minutes.
We’re convinced she thinks we’re hurting it when we squeeze it and she must nurture the injured toy back to health. What a good toy mama.
