Good mawnin' :)
Hope y'alls Saturdays were great...I know mine was filled with work (both at the office and here), but still a lot of fun.
When we left the office yesterday we realized we needed to get dog food since both were almost out! I think it's important to feed dogs, right? Anyway, we stopped by Petsmart and got their food and some toys (that, by the way, only lasted 3 minutes tops in the mouths of my ferocious beasts!), and then headed to Costco. Why Costco, you ask? Simple - they usually have better deals on dog biscuits than anywhere else. Oh, and I guess the samples. But obviously we went strictly for the dog biscuits (wink)!
At Costco we found a $$ GREAT DEAL $$ on Bully Sticks! These are dried bull muscle (appetizing), and are normally outrageously expensive, but Costco had a bag of 12 for $10. KILLER DEAL. So we got those for the puppers:
We vowed to only use them for occasions when people come over and our dogs are being outrageously annoying, so they haven't had one yet. But they will...oooooh, they will.
I got to work on the medical notes I do on the side, and Nate ended up re-watching Duplicity. I worked on those for about 2 hours, and then Nate let me know that he was making dinner. He kept is simple with a pita pizza with chicken and fresh mozzarella:
He put a little flour on them so they'd resemble "real" pizzeria pizza - apparently that's something he really like about those! Guess you still learn things about one another even after 3 years of marriage, eh? :)
We went and saw Sherlock Holmes at the theater (where we shared some popcorn...don't judge) and it was AWESOME!!! Truly a great movie...not too violent for me, but more than enough action for him. Plus, it has Robert Downey, Jr and Jude Law. I mean come on, it's good for girls too! :)
When we got home I finished my notes and we promptly jumped in bed! This morning I did NOT want to get up, but was able to lure myself to a standing position with the promise of one of these guys:
It's the hazelnut candy my pen pal, Jackie, in France sent me! SOOOOOOO terrific, and it totally hit the spot. I also made a bowl of pumpkin oats with peanut buttah:
In the mix: 1/3 cup oats, 1 cup water, 1 Tbsp cranberries, 1 banana, 1 Tbsp flax, 1 packet Truvia, 1/3 cup pumpkin, 1 Tbsp peanut butter. SO GOOD. I really think I love peanut butter way more than almond butter; however, if left alone I would eat a whole thing of PB, so I stick with AB as a means of portion control. Weird?
Today I'll be collaborating with my husband the photographer and one of our friends on (hopefully!!!) getting the new blog up and running. It won't be perfected (I'll still have to sort through the restaurants and blogroll), but the sooner I can start posting on it, the better.
If you've switched your blog (i.e. Blogger to Wordpress), do you have any tips to throw my way? And if not, any tricks you've learned from your own blogging format?
