What was everyones weekend plans?

This weekend was all about relaxation for me. I did go out with some girlfriends on Friday night to a mexican restaurant which was a great time, but the rest of the weekend I did a whole lot of NOTHING! :) It was rather fabulous, actually. I really wanted to spend time with our little birthday boy Rocky {see previous post} so we spent a lot of time outdoors and on walks.

We got him an alligator cookie & a bone from Moochie & Co. for his birthday {I typically don't like getting him big cakes because in the past his stomach wasn't too happy with them}, but he loved both of the treats.

He scarfed the cookie down so fast...

...as you can see, he was pretty tired by the end of his birthday after all the treats and walks he went on! :)

Billy and I watched the movie Just Go With It
with Jennifer Aniston & Adam Sandler..

We thought this movie was HILARIOUS...
I was really surprised how good it was!
We cracked up so many times & thought it was such a cute movie!

Did anyone else see this movie & really like it?!

I also made a yummy summer salad
{that I used more as a dip with Baked Scoops}

Super easy..

*1 can Garbanzo beans, 2 diced tomatoes, 1 yellow onion {or however much you like}, EVOO, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, pinch of parsley*

This week is a short one for me at work because we have a mini vacation with Billy's side of the family this weekend, and then next week is our anniversary --which means...Boston :)

I hope this week flies by!


Did you guys know there is an OPI app for the iPhone?

You never know when you may want to see the new nail polish colors...or you can use it to see what color you want for your next mani or pedi  ;)
