Winter Wonderland in Spring, the best stupid movie and more of Abby’s cheek fur shenanigans!

While I was a Bulk Barn the other day I came across a cookie cutter that I just couldn’t resist…and maybe it’s weird that I’m feeding Abby treats in these shapes, but they crack me up!!

Seriously, I bet you can’t help but laugh when you see them, right?!

FYI, I’m not some crazy person who insists on baking her own dog treats because I feel store bought ones are safe…it’s just that this recipe is STUPID easy…and now a bonus is that I get to use this cookie cutter!! lol!!

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup water (more if needed)
1 tbsp molasses

Mix, roll, cut and bake at 300F for 18 minutes.

Last Friday I had the day off…and I was extra grateful because when I opened up the front door to take Abby for a walk, all I saw was WHITE

And it basically continued ALL DAY

Saturday morning was just stupid…

…and it’s funny, because in January or February this would be no big deal, but at the end of March it had me and my teammates cursing on our group chat and discussing whether to actually run outside for our long run. We’re just DONE with winter.

But we are also done with long treadmill runs, so we met up and had a great 11 mile run in the beautiful sunshine…and snow!

TG was here for the weekend and on Saturday we ventured out to Ikea…I needed some frames for some of my Africa pictures and I needed a new duvet for one of my spare bedrooms. Since this is the room the TG’s daughter sleeps in, I made sure to buy a duvet that was 8-year old girl friendly! Pink is her FAVORITE colour.

I also, while we were out, picked up a new battery for my Garmin heart rate monitor…but I struggled to get the tiny screws out and somehow the guy with the giant hands was able to doΒ it better than me! lol

Sunday morning I did 6 miles first thing…on my treadmill. Did I tell you? I finished House of Cards?!?! OMG, I can’t wait for the next season!! Soooo, until then, I’m watching:

I had been watching it a few years ago, but lost track of when it was aired on Cable so have picked it back up just at the beginning of Season 3. I CANNOT STAND Claire Danes but am managing to not let her ruin it for me! lol

Abby is clearly not a fan though…this was her while I was running and watching!

Then we went to see what I describe as the dumbest entertaining movie I have ever seen.

The special effects and visuals were OUT OF CONTROL. And we saw it in 3D. Now, let me be clear, this is not normally a movie I would go to (EVER), but I just felt like seeing something silly and my dad had said that while there was no plot and the acting was terrible, it would have you on the edge of your seat. And that it did – I was either on the edge, or jumping inches off my chair as Kong and the other animals did their thing…and what about TG? Not a word of a lie, the guy fell asleep twice!!!!! LOL!!! This excerpt from a review (ugh, I can’t find where I pulled it from!) of the movie is SPOT. ON.

Do I recommend you going to it? No. Not at all. But if you do, tell me what you thought!

I went to Starbucks this weekend – not something I do often (because I have trouble paying that much money for their drinks)…is this the new thing?? I don’t know why, but the personal touch of WRITING my name on my cup actually makes a big difference!

I do a lot of food prep for myself so that I have enough food to bring with me to work and so that I cook well balanced meals during the week rather than skimp out because I’m too tired at the end of the day. But I also (insert eye roll) do a lot of food prep for Miss Abby. Seriously. Any time you open my fridge you’ll find this…and it’s ALL. FOR. ABBY.

She really has no idea how good she has it. LOL – OMG, just noticing now, that mug in the background is perfect!!

Speaking of Abby…remember last week I showed you how I love playing with her cheek fur…I showed my dad and he has since admitted that he can’t help but give her a cheek mustache either!! lol!! This was this morning after our walk in the rain – fur was primed for styling!!

God, she’s adorable!!!

Happy Monday!!

    I’ve noticed several Starbucks that type your name on the order slip like that. Pretty slick, but I agree that the handwritten is better. That’s why I still personally were my Holiday cards and thank you notes to people. πŸ‘πŸ»

    I love your wiener dog cookies! Your weather is insane, we have zero snow over here in the west…course that could change but your winter has been far worse than ours for the second year in a row…bizarre. Abbys cheek fur is adorable and is that tupperware full of red and yellow peppers?? I’ve never heard of any dog liking peppers before πŸ™‚

      Aren’t you in Alberta?? And you have no snow?! Whaaaaat?!

      Abby’s cheek fur is HILARIOUS – I’m glad you’re amused as well!

      Um, there is almost nothing that Abby won’t eat and she is hungry 24/7 so I had to add the fruits/veggies to her regular dog food to keep her from eating the house! Lol
