Well I am still on vacation for one more day and I left a lot of the items on my list for today so this is just a portion of it. Today is my shopping day so that should be fun. I also need to get my inspection sticker on my car, not as fun.
Taking a break on Friday at the hospital with my Dad to read and have lunch. FInishing the book led to me watching an obscene amount of the The Mindy project episodes.
Made a huge batch of fruit salad to have as breakfast for the week. So good. Also had a side of chorizo and some walnuts.
Saturday I was having my new oven delivered so I dubbed it my not leaving the couch day. So I curled up with a book and relaxed with some coffee. This book is perfect for those who love the Hallmark movie season. It was perfectly adorable. Sure it had some eyeroll moments and things were wrapped up a little too perfectly but it was a town that came together and helped their own including veterans and it pulled my heartstrings.
I had more than a few wood projects I wanted to work on but then I took a nap instead of lugging out my miter saw so this was the only one I got done. I still need to dress it up but it was a fun stocking project.
Sunday was finally the day where I could get outside so I took to the trails for a 4.5 mile. Then I went grocery shopping and relaxed for a little bit. Ok, okay I took a nap. Then did the stocking project.
I am a horrible doggy Mom since I forgot to celebrate turning 10 on Thursday. I usually celebrate on the 15th which was the day I adopted him but I totally forget. Bad Mommy. Either way I totally spoiled him all weekend.
Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.
Awe, happy birthday Seamus!! Loving the idea of fruit salad for breakfast, I didn’t prep breakfast so this morning it was toast and a banana. Hope you get a lot accomplished today and enjoy the last of your vacation time this weekend!
I can’t believe he is 10 already. The fruit salad is really nice and I like that it is grab and go I struggle with breakfast if it takes too long.
Remember last year when we were both watching the same hallmark movie at the same time – they are the best!! Enjoy your day off and hope you stay warm! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston
I totally remember that, can’t wait till the movies come back. I think you would like that book since it is just like those Hallmark movies.

Healing lights to your dad.
You are never a bad doggie mommy!
Seamus is a well-loved furry kid.
Have a beautiful day off today.
Love. Steph’s. Momma.
Thank you. I think it was just so busy I totally forgot. For some reason my phone didn’t send the reminder. He will get his “birthday cake” tonight though.
a 4.5 mile walk on the trail sounds so nice! I always love weekends where Ican get out and be active!
It was so nice to get out, though it is getting really cold here.
Sounds like a fairly relaxing weekend, my favorite kind!
It was crazy and hectic but I did get some downtime. I really could use another few days though.
Enjoy your last day off! Getting an inspection sticker is the worse. I have to get one in December and dread it. Seamus is so cute!! Adding that book to my reading list, I’m sure I would love it.
Well considering they found I needed a new exhaust I would say the worst. Thank you, he does have a sweet face. I think you’d like it, light and fluffy but really sweet.

Don’t feel bad – I have completely forgotten when one of my dog’s birthdays is – I cant remember if its August, September or November… THAT’s a bad doggie mom!
Haha! Oh no! You should look it up so you can celebrate!

I started reading Mindy’s book this weekend! Your pup is too cute, and looks like a beautiful day to get outside!
It is really nice to see how she is very down to earth and has some of the same insecurities most women have and her humor comes through in the book. Thank you, he totally puts up with me always taking his picture. 🙂

I forget Dobie’s birthday all the time because it’s January 9th and I’m still crazed from the holidays. I make it up to him big time when I eventually remember. Treats, new toys, the works.
Yay for a new oven!
He is totally getting a paw ice cream “cake” tonight. Poor thing. I am so excited for the oven, I can finally make bacon again! Haha!
I want to read that Mindy book. She cracks me up. I loved the first one.
You get to see some of her college years and her humor comes out. I had no idea she was from Massachusetts so that was fun to know.
awww happy birthday Seamus!!
that book sounds totally adorable, and the fruit salad looks so good!
when i read mindy’s first book i binge watched a bunch of her show lol. then i kinda fizzled out on it, but i’ve been meaning to catch up.
It was so cute and just a feel good book. I loved the show and it was not what I expected.
Mindy’s newest book is on my list! I hope it’s good!
It wasn’t overly great but it was good. It tend to be all over the place like a lot of celebrity books, but it did make me laugh out loud more than a few times so it was worth a read.
Happy 10th to Seamus! So adorable. How is the new Mindy book? I was on the fence with her old one, but maybe because it was an audiobook? This is on my TBR though.
Thank you. I did like it, audiobooks are typically hard for me to pay attention to but I like listening to comedian audiobooks because you get their sense of timing. I did like reading this one though, it is a little scattered but I feel like most of them are too. Good stories.
Hallmark movie you say? Sounds like my kind of book! Plus Christmas!!! Double win! I forgot about Mac’s birthday this year too. He didn’t seem to mind when we celebrated, just as long as he got his treats.
Yes it was sweet and romance and helping each other within the town. Yes so much as he got his ice cream he didn’t mind! Ha!
Not leaving the couch day sounds good. I really need to try that one weekend.
It was really nice. I almost never get one of them unless I am sick so it was nice. I highly recommend one! 😉
That trail is so gorgeous! I love extra days off. Glad you got to enjoy one!
It is so pretty there and it wasn’t too cold which was nice.

That fruit salad looks delish!! And Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal <3
It makes the morning so much quicker when I can grab and go. She is so fun and just real, love her.
Making fruit salad in big batches is the best. I could live off it for days and not get sick of it… sometimes it even gets BETTER after a few days!
Yes. When all the flavors all run together. So good and a quick breakfast!

I’ll have to put that on my list for the Christmas season!
It was such a sweet cheesy melt your heart book, which I am a total sucker for on a good day. 😉
Meg Taylor says
The foliage is really starting to look perfect up there! We’re headed to New England in a couple of weeks, and I am sooo hoping we get to see some of it 🙂 I’ve been wanting to read Mindy Kaling’s book – it looks so good!
It is starting to look like Fall. I actually need to rake this weekend. I think it was good, a little random at times but I think more celebrity books tend to be.
What a gorgeous weekend! 4.5 miles on the trail? You go girl! And Seamus looks as dapper as ever! xo
It was the perfect day for it too. Thank you. He is a keeper. 😉
I have been wanting to read Mindy’s book for ages (did I just call her Mindy, like I know her?! LOL)
Haha! You did. She writes in that way that makes you feel like you know her already.
Elle Sees says
