A walk in the park

I've been pretty distracted this week... Which isn't good for my blog... or keeping up with the housekeeping work.

Last Sunday, while playing with little Freyja, it got a little out of hand and she scratched my cornea. Fortunately it wasn't bad and I'm fully recovered, but it made for a rough start to the week.

And school started this week! For those of you who don't know, I'm studying for my advanced paralegal certificate... And reading 6 chapters on Medical Paralegal Law, it takes a lot of time.

Speaking of reading, I also broke out my Kindle again this week. I haven't used it in months and after using it 3 days straight, I can't seem to put it down...

I did manage to stop reading on Saturday for a little outing. First stop: Starbucks.

Anyone know what these cute little boxes hold?

Starbucks mini cupcakes.... I'd never seen them before and we just had to try them.

On the left, carrot cake for me and the right, chocolate peanut butter for the bf

After our Starbucks run, we took Freyja for a walk in our favorite park. It was a gorgeous day and surprisingly warm. 

It's really starting to feel like spring, even if there is no evidence of that in the plants.

Freyja had a blast, as always.

But she was one tired pooch when we got home.

And she really likes to cuddle up.

We also put the final coat of stain/poly on the new dining room table... I'm really hoping we can get it moved in sometime today.

And for dinner? It was so nice, we decided to do all of our cooking outside.

We just couldn't bring ourselves to go inside when it was so nice and warm.

Hope you all are having a great weekend!


  1. Happy to hear the weather is finally warming up and you guys got to get outside! The cupcakes look fabulous... I don't think we have those here, but we do have "cake pops" at Starbucks :)

    I love the pic of Freyja! She looks like she is plum wore out.

    Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

  2. And by the way... love that you take pictures of everything these days too! :)

  3. Yikes ... sorry to hear about your eye! Gotta watch out for those puppy paws! Glad you're feeling better and your walk looked like so much fun! I don't recognize that park ... where is it? There is some growth in my gardens (although small) and hopefully with the now warmer weather, we'll see some plant progress. Okay, those mini cupcakes look divine and I'm getting ready to head to the nearest Starbucks (where I NEVER go)!

  4. It WAS a beautiful weekend, glad to hear you were able to get out and enjoy it. Hope your eye is on the mend!

    Freyja is SO sweet! I grew up with a dachsund, my grandparents bought one for my aunt to keep her company when my mom moved out and got married. While she technically wasn't our dog, she was a big part of my childhood and I have a soft spot in my heart for them. Let me know if you ever need a sitter! : )

    Oh, and I'll take a choc. peanut butter cupcake too please!
