The Weekend In Photos (and Also, Words).

Shoot. Let's just pretend like it hasn't been ten days since my last blog. Sorry about that, friends. And after I was such a super blogger the week before last, too. Last week I was busy cooking delicious dinners every night. And by that I mean, busy cooking nothing at all and going out to dinner with my handsome studier. Bad for the budget, lovely for our White Hot morale.

Well, now that we've gotten that out of the way, woo hoo three-day weekend. How was yours? Mine was just delightful.

I'd love to tell you about it...

First, Friday kicked off with a lunch date with my sweet friend, followed by trips to Target and the grocery. Then, Hugh took me out on a little dinner date. Followed by a 9:30pm bedtime. What can I say? We get up early around this place.

Saturday morning was a trip to the market, just me and Fletcher. I would show you a picture, but I could barely manage to wrangle the dog and my wallet and my bag of produce; I'm pretty sure I was that girl (You know, that pet owner with the seemingly ill-behaved pet we all love to judge. Yep, totally me.). Needless to say, I don't think a trip to the market with the dog is a one person activity.

Then there was the garden. My flowers are just blooming like crazy. A few specimens:

Saturday night we grilled some farmer's market bounty (asparagus and okra) along side whole trout stuffed with lemon and herbs from the garden:

Sunday morning there was cooking for my favorite IBD patient:

Scrambled eggs and rice - breakfast of champions.

And there was soaking up every second of Down Day with this (beardless) face:

Someone in this house is really enjoying the success of my garden catnip:

Our favorite pup spent the afternoon being crazy in the sprinkler:

And then just generally being a beauty:

Sunday night we make a last minute trip to the movies for a little Hangover 2. It was pretty darn funny. Our smuggled in beverage of choice didn't hurt.

Monday, our favorite med student was back to the books, while I spent the day working on a little project. I'm saving the reveal until I'm completely finished, but here's a little sneak peak:

I know, I'm so handy, right?

And then, studying was done (for the day, people; don't get too excited) and all rejoiced. Someone plays so hard with his daddy he can hardly stand up:

Look at that tongue!

We wrapped our Memorial day with some all-American grilling:

And, in a blink, the weekend was gone and I was getting up to be a commuter. What did you do this weekend?

Check back tomorrow for the recipe for one of my favorite summer appetizers!

Post Script: Nature is after me, again:

At least my poppies are beautiful...


  1. Your infrequent blogging is unacceptable. Also, please come visit me.

  2. Looks like a perfect weekend. May I remind you, you used to like cats MORE than dogs! Ummm - stupid.

  3. On Tuesday you wrote "check back tomorrow," and well, now it's Thursday. Just saying...
