St. Patrick’s Day – Weekend Photo Dump

Hello! Hello! And happy Monday!

I hope y’all had a great weekend.  Mine was just the right amount of relaxing and mingling out with friends.

Friday I met the Hubs downtown after his work for a gathering with his co- workers.  Since it was St. Patrick’s Day I went prepared with fun props.

We tried a few of the beers at Bhramari.  The Lorelai was my favorite.

After drinks with his co- workers we went to dinner by ourselves across the street at Storm.  We shared delightful scallops…

… and a snowy grouper… which was incredible.

Saturday was a slow day for me while he Hubs worked.  I did some yoga, work on the blog and played with the two pups.  Makena is back to 100% after surgery, although we are supposed to keep her quiet for a few more days which is challenge.  She really wanted to galavant with this stick and was beyond annoyed at me when I wouldn’t let her.

Poor Rhett is showing his age lately and keeps looking older and older.  Even though I don’t share his photo as much, please know he still gets tons of one on one time and love.

For dinner we went over to our friend Jason’s house for his birthday party.  He had a big crawfish boil!  I wasn’t sure whether that sight would gross some of you out, so instead of that… here’s a picture of his cute dog Copper.  I used to think he was the craziest dog I knew… until I met Makena! lol!

I was still a little hungry after we left the party and was craving something sweet, so we stopped at TCBY on the way home.  I got a chocolate shiver with cookie dough and a few turtles on the top.  This was the small!

Sunday morning I slept in again.  Daylight savings time really threw me off this week and I was so tired.  Once I got moving the Hubs made friend eggs and cinnamon rolls.  I had these ones out of the can almost every weekend growing up, so they are the ultimate comfort food for when I’m feeling a bit homesick.  They remind me of my Mom so much… so in my book they are worth the splurge.

I ran a few errands Sunday including picking up my long overdue Valentine’s Day present… new sunnies!  The Hubs got a pair too.  If anyone is in the market, Sam’s Club has great prices on Ray Bans.  This is my first pair of nicer sunglasses ever, so  hopefully I will not lose them right away.

For dinner we met our friend Dan and his kids at our new favorite pizza place in town Fahrenheit Pizza and Brewhouse.

This time we got several small pizzas to choose from and they were all winners.  If you are local, you’ve got to check it out.

After dinner we came home and watched Moana.  How did I live without this movie in my life?  I’m in love.

So with that, I’ll just leave you with this song… bound to make you smile on this Monday morning.

Have a blessed day everyone and I hope your weekend was nice too!

I’m linking up with Marvelous Monday.

Thanks for making Running in a Skirt a small part of your day!  Come back tomorrow for a new video sharing how I make my favorite salad dressing right in the bowl!

Your turn!

How was your weekend?

    Looks like an amazing weekend! (Sorry it took so long to catch up on commenting and the like!) I’m glad Makena is back to 100%, and definitely sending lots of love to Rhett–he’s so adorable! <3 (…and now I really want pizza too, hahaha.)

    I still need to watch Moana! <3

    I seriously can’t get over how cute your pups are. Oh that Makenna though – that little face. Rhett is of course completely adorable too. You know I’m a sucker for dog pictures. I appreciate you sharing a picture of Cooper too – he’s also quite the cutie.
    Looks like you had a great weekend. I think I will strive for that – a good balance of down time with a bit of socializing too. I like the St. Paddy’s Day props =) And the pizza place looks so good.
    Your new sunglasses suit you so well Julie!
    And seeing Moana has been on my list for awhile, I really should get to that.

      I totally get it. I’m a total dog person too.
      You’ve got to see Moana… sooo good!

    I loveee that song – and the whole of Moana!

    It looks like you guys had a fun weekend!

    My family recently watched Moana and we really enjoyed it as well. I loved all the songs in it! 🙂

  5. I have those same RayBans. I bought them as a replacement for my Oakleys, which Cocoa chewed on. It’s a good thing she’s so cute….

    Glad you enjoyed your weekend! Mine was pretty busy–Saturday, I went to a blogger brunch and was able to meet several women in my city who blog. Then Sunday, I ran in my first half-marathon with my daughter. We had lots of fun 🙂 BTW–your dogs are ALL precious, but Rhett grabbed my heart. He is too cute!

      Yay for a blogger brunch!
      Rhett is a cutie. He’ll always be my first real love :-).

    Glad you enjoyed your weekend.
    I saw Beauty and the Beast with my daughters
    on Friday which was Awesome. We celebrated my
    dad’s birthday at my folks on Saturday which was
    very nice.

    Sounds like a good weekend with great food! I never had spent a lot of money on sunglasses. I am so afraid of losing them or sitting on them. I will stick to my cheap ones. I do like them though!

    • JulieWunder March 26, 2017 at 10:10 am - Reply

      I’ve never had a nice pair before… I’m afraid too. We’ll see what happens! lol!

    It’s always so sad when our puppies don’t feel well, and I always appreciate them even more when they feel better. I love loving on our dogs, the older ones and the little ones, because they bring so so much joy to every day. Rhett is just so handsome, and Makena is adorable.

    I love how you got so much time to try out some yummy food this weekend, spend time with the puppies, wear fun St. Patrick’s day props, and I hope this is a wonderful start to the week!

      Thanks! These pups take over my life! In the best way :-).
      Hope your weekend is going well too.

    So glad Makena is all better! Rhett is gorgeous as usual. It’s tough when they get older but I know you’re giving him so much love.

    Your St Patrick’s Day activities look so fun! Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend!

    • JulieWunder March 26, 2017 at 10:05 am - Reply

      It is so hard! He’ll always be my love.
      Hope you are having a good weekend too.

    pizza looked great….this weekend was up and down….mainly down toward the end….went to a former coworker’s surprise birthday party at Hub City Tap House (excellent reason to have one of my favorite beers..Downtown Spartanbrown), then home to take care of two sick kids…that turned in to three sick kids, that turned into three sick kids and a sick wife, that turned into disaster…yes now all five of us…was wanting to get back to the gym this week (missed last week due to a sore back)…that’ll have to wait a week…on the plus side, I did win 4 one hour jump passes at Big Air

  12. Those pizzas look amazing! That is my weakness for sure 🙂

      So good! Bread and cheese… how could you go wrong.

    Good morning! Fun pictures from the weekend! You two always find some great eats where you live! Love the new glasses- looking very Hollywood!

    Such a cute movie! I love it. Those glasses look great on you, too. I’m always so picky with sunglasses.

    • JulieWunder March 26, 2017 at 10:02 am - Reply

      I used to not care much, but lately every cheap pair I tried on looked weird on my face. haha!

    As always, everything looks delicious. But I have to say that the glasses (both yours and Shon’s) take the day!
