Dog Sitting

WOD: 30 min. elliptical, 20. min. strength

You’d think I have enough to deal with just with my 65-pound mutt but I volunteered to dog sit and brought home a second one.

Friday morning we went to the complex dog park for some outdoor playtime fun.

My pup is a little too friendly sometimes but gets kind of macho when you bring another dog into his house. When we first brought Lulu in his fur puffed up and he barked a lot but eventually he got over it.

I can’t say they were the best of friends. She didn’t play much but Rico had a good time.

I’m loving this beautiful Florida winter weather. How was your weekend?

Photo Update: Presents and Family Time

WOD: Nothing again.
I’ve been slacking this week but I don’t feel too bad. Instead of running I’ve continued resting my knee and spending quality time with the fam. That’s a win in my book, but I’m going to try for a short run and some strength training before the weekend is over.

My mom surprised me with an iPad. I can’t wait to use this for blogging.

J gave me this necklace. I love it! He’s been talking about his gift for a few weeks and I can genuinely say I was surprised with this one.

I bought a Livingsocial deal for a 4-lap Ferrari ride and we went out to use it Thursday morning. Boys are so hard to shop for. This is the first gift I’ve been able to give J that he genuinely enjoyed. Look at that grin!

bowling

Later Thursday night my sister, my cousin and I went bowling. We were really tired and played terribly but at least we looked cute doing it.

Did you get any good presents this year? Tell me about them.

Christmas Eve and Rad Winners

WOD: Still resting my knee.

Where have I been?
Well, it is the holiday season after all.
J and I left for South Florida last week to see our families.
First stop: To see J’s  grandmother.

shuffle

I learned to play shuffleboard but lost pretty bad. I think I’ll stick to running.

My mom had a Christmas party on Saturday.
I love any excuse to dress up but love getting to see my family under one roof even more.

Rowdy. Loud. Crazy. Perfection.

My sister and I spent some quality time together before I have to head back home.

My sister is just a little obsessed with Harry from One Direction so J got her the doll.
