Hey there people!! Happy Monday to you all! I for one am in a fantastic mood this Monday because work has finally calmed down (yay!!) and it’s a short work for me. We even got an email from our office director saying we could all leave at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday instead of the usual 5:30. Woohoo!! Now let’s just hope I get all my work done by then so I can actually leave on time!
So, let me tell you about my weekend!! First of all, I should tell you that it was quite relaxing. Fabio and I didn’t do too much, except for running some errands and visiting both of my parents on Sunday. Two of our friends from Baltimore were supposed to come stay with us for the weekend, but at the last minute they told us they couldn’t make it 🙁 That turned our busy weekend into a suddenly empty weekend with no plans. I’ll take it!
One thing we did do was celebrate Jack’s second birthday!! We rescued him from the shelter one year ago (or at least- it was the Saturday before Thanksgiving – close enough) and when we got him, the people at the shelter told us he was about one year old. By our guess-timation, that makes him two!! We had a fun weekend celebrating Jack’s birthday (minus an obligatory stop at the vet’s office to update his vaccines and get his annual exam) and I think he had a great time!
Anyway, since we didn’t too much else this weekend I will leave you with the pictures and some brief captions to explain 🙂 Enjoy!
Breakfast of champions…whole wheat pancakes and turkey bacon 😉
A trip to the vet and one overly-excited pooch.
A celebratory trip to PetsMart. Happy Birthday Jack! Choose your toy…
The winning toy (P.S. the ball in this picture is already separated from the rope. He doesn’t mess around haha).
A birthday trip to the dog park.
Playing around with Fabio.
Brunch at my mom’s house.
Delicious home-cooked food (that left me stuffed).

Jack was faster than Fabio.
Spaghetti for dinner 🙂
And there you have it! My pictures from the weekend 🙂 As you can see it was nothing too crazy, but it was nice to have a weekend relaxing with my family.
Question of the day: If you have a pet, what do you to celebrate their birthday? Do you know when your pet’s birthday is??
I wish we knew when Jack’s real birthday is, but even more than that I’d like to know what breeds he is mixed with (other than labrador) and where he was before the shelter found him (they said he was a stray). Hopefully Jack doesn’t mind that we kind of “made up” when his birthday is and that it’s not even specific to the day. Woops! Somehow, I don’t think he minds too much 😉 Haha!
