Gah. Loves. Monday already?

I have been way too busy for my own good. I really feel like I have no down time anymore. And when I do have down time. Well it’s not so down.

Matt has been sick the past few days, so I of course always take the mother hen approach and want to take care of him and make sure his needs are taken care of. But that’s what love is right? I have absolutely no problem doing it because I know he would do the same for me.

But since it is Monday and we all need to remember that life is marvelous, I will give you a little insight of what’s been going on lately.

My weekend of course started with work. Even though Saturday’s are half days, I still wish I could have an actual real weekend and have both days off.  But things aren’t as bad when the doctor brings you breakfast.

We all know this carb loving girl loves her bagels (and just in case you were wondering that’s a chocolate chip bagel, yes they exist!), and Einstein’s honey almond smear is ah-mazing. You better believe I slathered that stuff on. It made working Saturday just a bit better.

This makes work a little bit better too.

Puppies!

Seriously puppies make everything better.

And while were on the topic of puppies, I’ve got some exciting, maybe even marvelous, news to share.

We all know I love to bake. And we all know I love my pootches. But what a lot of people don’t know is one dream I have always had is to combine the two. It has been a career dream of mine to open my own doggy bakery. I don’t know if that dream will ever come true, but I  have decided to finally take baby steps into making it happen. We all have to start somewhere and I figure since I work at an animal hospital and know a lot of people in the field, I can start by having a home business and start by making and selling treats from home through my clients and friends. We’ll see where it goes from there! I will definitely keep you guys posted. (and if you’re interested in home made dog treats made from natural ingredients, feel free to contact me!)

But before that even happens, I need to test some recipes and find the perfect treats! This weekend I finally decided to start experimenting!

And thus my first home made dog treats were born! I started with a simple pumpkin peanut butter biscuit, but I am excited to experiment with different ingredients and recipes! Now I know they look cute, but did they pass the pup taste test?

A curious sniff…

And she ate it! But honestly, I’m pretty sure she would eat anything, so I don’t know how good of a judge she is, so I am going to recruit some of my friends pups for more taste testing!

Other than that the weekend was pretty low key. Since Matt was sick we didn’t venture much out into the world, however Sunday since it was so gorgeous out, I thought it might be good for him to get out of the house for a bit. I know when I’m sick, sometimes sitting inside all day almost makes it worse.

I had some grocery shopping I needed to do, I needed to pick up some ingredients for a few recipes I will be testing from The Purely Twins new No Flour Cracker and Flatbread cookbook (be on the look out for a review in the near future!), so I dragged him with me.  I’m glad I did, because he ended up feeling a bit better. So much better on our way home we stopped by OHSO Brewery for this.

Nothing like beer and pizza to make you feel better.

And to end our night and weekend, the whole family gathered for movie night.

I have been wanting to see Frozen for some time now and I will say this is one movie that is worth the hype. We both really enjoyed it.

So a perfect way to end my weekend if you ask me.

But alas, it is now Monday, so back to the drawing board.

Have a wonderful week my loves.

What made your weekend marvelous?
