Hi guys, its been a few since we did a little update on how things are doing out here on the homestead. And by homestead I mean our condo in Boulder…same same?
If you follow along with our adventures on instagram, you would have seen that last weekend we bought Loki a pool. While he LOVES water, he was a little unsure about it at first, but yesterday after a hot hike, he was all about it. I even stuck my toes in after my run.
Loki’s favorite pool game is for me to throw that orange ball in the pool and him to dive in after it. He also enjoys playing underwater footsie with me. We did that for about an hour. Yes, I took my dog mom-ing to the next level. Perfect timing for Mother’s Day, right?
Friday night I posted this photo on the ol’ Instagram, and you guys, I am SO excited to share the recipe with you this week! You’re going to eat it up. Literally.
And yes, you have to wait for the recipe. I had the sneak peek photo because I had to do a crazy amount of baking and photographing this past week because I’m heading back to the East Coast to see family and then IRELAND. Basically taking up the rest of May. So I needed to get ahead on recipes.
Here’s a little behind the scenes for ya. This is the face Loki gives me while I’m standing on chairs to take food photos. Slightly confused, and not impressed because I’m not paying attention to him.
Speaking of that trip, I leave in 2 days. 2 DAYS! I have no idea how I’m going to pack for a trip back home as well as to Ireland. I feel like they’re going to require slightly different wardrobes – it’s supposed to be 70 sunny in Ithaca, but in Ireland it’ll be 50s and rainy. Oh well, when in doubt, just pack a ton of layers! And not too many leggings… I always pack too many pairs of leggings. Also, how many pairs of shoes is acceptable for a 3 week trip? I vote 4 or 5. Running shoes, Birks, cute sandals, cute Vans and Toms. Is that too much? Probably. I’ll let you know what I decide.
Loki is a better packer, he just needs a toy, some treats and poopie bags. Done. Oh and the occasional stick.
It’s been HOT here. You probably deduced that from the kiddie pool though. This means I can no longer be a lazy lady and do my morning runs at 9am. Hello alarm clock, do you remember me?
I was taking this photo on a run earlier this week and this butterfly totally photobombed me. I don’t even like butterflies but I thought some of you might, so here you go.
Oh and one more random question – am I the only crazy lady around here that peels the skin off their chick peas?
Okay, guys. I gotta split and go take my doggie for a walkie. I’ll leave you with this video to enjoy.
