Weekend Highlights

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I will admit it was hard to feel in the Christmas spirit when it was 65 degrees---but I'm not complaining.  The dogs and I loved getting out of the house for dog park trips and long walks!

Let me introduce you to my new foster baby---Misty. She is a special girl for sure. I pulled her out of a local shelter after her owners tired of breeding her. I hate people. Luckily, her good looks have already secured her a new home in Indiana and she'll be heading up north after the holidays! In the meantime we are enjoying every second with her. It's nice to have another lady in the house. 


Wrangling 3 leashes is not easy. But they loved roaming the neighborhood!

On Saturday I went downtown to look around some of the local shops. A new and exciting shop just opened called Rustic Roots and it's so cool! It focuses on and sells only products made in KY. They will also be offering pottery and other artisan classes. Finally, Appalachia is becoming cool! 


This shirt describes me perfectly.

I finally got around to trying a recipe from Thug Kitchen. This cookbook is full of yummy vegan recipes that are so gorgeous that you won't even miss the meat. I tried out the Sriracha Roasted Cauliflower with Peanut dipping sauce and it did not disappoint. It felt very indulgent but without the guilt!

Cheers to a fantastic week!

  3. What a little cutie! Luckily they're all pretty small. I tried walking my neighbors golden and Starla at the same time and I was dragged down the sidewalk. It's so impossible (especially with pullers!)

  7. I hate people too, but glad you are able to foster her while she waits to go home! My parents rescued a dog last year who was also used for breeding and kept in a crate most of her life. So sad! I didn't realize Thug Kitchen was vegan recipes! That cauliflower looks so good!
