Last weekend’s festivities

Last weekend, we had a lot going on.  Only fun things though, so that’s okay.  I’ll take a busy, fun weekend anytime!

Friday night we went to Oktoberfest in a neighboring city and met up with some friends there.  We ate good, but unhealthy (very, very unhealthy) food, drank beer, and had a great time people-watching.  Festivals are the best for people watching!  We did not, however, spot any fanny packs.  Disappointing.  We did see a few mullets, though, which just about make up for the fanny packs, hehe.

We also played a few festival games….

And, in the ball toss game, I WON…
Harrison, the goldfish!!!

Ok, ok.  I technically didn’t win him.  K may have had to pay off the scary lady with no teeth with a few extra tickets for Harrison but it was totally worth it.  He was living in a bucket with 100s of other fish.  That’s no life for a fish.  Now look how happy he is…

 

On Saturday, we went to the Plano Balloon Fest.  It.Was.Awesome.  Hot air balloons everywhere.  And, people everywhere.  There were 200,000 people at this event.  To put that into perspective…that’s the population of the city we’re from (Toledo, Ohio).  Crazy!  And, we were sitting up on a hill, so we could see all the people.  These pictures do not do it justice.  Or the balloons, for that matter.  After dark, the balloons lit up to music and there was a fireworks show (eep, one of my favorite things ever).  It was a good day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday we did nothing.

 

On Monday, we went to a Ranger’s game with friends and had a fantastic time.  (Monday is technically not the weekend, but since we didn’t do anything on Sunday I decided to lump Monday into this post).  It’s weird to go to a baseball game at the end of September while it’s 95 degrees.  But, I’ll take it over Ohio’s end of September weather any day.  The game was close and the Rangers tied it in the last inning, 4-4.  At their last at bat, bases loaded, a ground ball to center field is hit, sending a run in.  Rangers win!!  It was very exciting!  Fans crack me up.  Everyone was hugging each other.  Some crazy lady, who I didn’t know, hugged me.  (She later pinched k’s butt while we were leaving, haha).  But, it just shows how much we love our sports teams!

 

 

So, there you have it, {d&k}s weekend.  How was yours?

We have fun things planned for this weekend too.  Check back soon for details!

 

Enjoy your day,

Last pug bombing

Hello friends,

The humans said they want their blog back, so today is our last post…for now.  Little do the humans know that I have the Mac power cord in my bed.  Ha ha ha.

We (the pugs) wanted to leave you with something good on our last pug bombing day.  Something to make you laugh.  Something to get you through this Friday.  So, this is what we’ve settled on.

Go ahead.  Laugh at this big, dumb animal.  DW (oops, we mean grandpa), this is for you:

No way would we ever fall for something like that. Wait. What’s that? I smell peanut butter. Gotta go!

TGIF

Smile…it’s Friday!!  

 

Happy Friday everyone!  Elvis hopes you have a wonderful weekend.  We have a pretty uneventful weekend planned, which I am really looking forward to.  I have lots of cleaning to catch up on.  And I really want to sleep in.  Yep, fun times around here, folks.  Sunday we are going to take the pups to the dog park and then we’re heading up to the lake for a bike ride.  What are your plans for the weekend?

 

Enjoy your weekend,
{d&k} and Elvis too!

Bad blogger, bad

I’m a bad blogger.  Ok, maybe not a bad blogger, but definitely a bad photographer.  We had a fantastic weekend and I didn’t take a single picture.  Bad d, bad.  I’m sorry.  I’m still going to tell you about {d&k}s weekend, but you’ll just have to imagine what it looked like.  You can do it!

On Friday {d&k} met some friends, the newlyweds, in their neck-of-the-woods and went to a very yummy pizza place.  We’ve discovered a lot of restaurants in the D are BYOB.  Weird, I know.  And, unless you are in on this, you wouldn’t know to bring something to drink.  Thankfully, our friends were in on this mean-little-joke-restaurants-like-to-play and brought some wine.  YES!  So we enjoyed our pizzas and wine, courtesy of the newlyweds, and had a great meal.  Then, it was off to heaven.  Ok, not really heaven, just a little wine & chocolate bar called Chocolate Secrets.  De.lic.ious.  They make all of their own chocolates, cake, and ice cream.  {d&k} had a huge hunk of chocolate raspberry cake and k tried a pb&j chocolate and I had a salted caramel.  I was going to share mine with k, but then I ate it all.  Oops.  Maybe next time, k.  k also had a beer float.  (Yes, we had a fat weekend folks, deal).  It was vanilla ice cream with a vanilla porter beer.  It was really good!  I think we’ll be making that at home very soon.

On Saturday, {d&k} had a laid back day.  We got a few things accomplished around the house and then spent the rest of the afternoon cuddling with the pups in bed and watching a movie.  Then it was off to the Catholic Charities Gala.  There were thousands of people there, dressed very fancy.  People were arriving in limos!  I felt a little out-of-place.  Especially with all the ball gowns and sequins.  I sort of felt like I was at prom, only my pink poufy prom dress would not have cut it here.  It was at the Hilton downtown and this place has a beautiful ballroom!  And, the food was delicious (which to me is surprising…I’ve eaten a lot of catered food and it’s normally not that great).  The evening started off with a live band and cocktail hour.  There was a silent auction during cocktail hour and a live auction during dinner.  There were several packages that went for $10,000!  The Catholic Charities made out on this event!  And then, the evening’s entertainment consisted of a performance by Martin Short.  Yep, that’s right.  Amazing.  He was hilarious.  He even did Fronk from Father of the Bride.  Loved it.  It was a great evening and {d&k} had a blast.  I even snuck in a bit of people-watching, which you know I love!

On Sunday, it was so nice here that we spent the entire day outside.  It was awesome!  We did have to sneak grocery shopping in there, but we did that first thing so as to get it out-of-the-way.  Then we loaded up the pups and took them to the dog park.  It was packed and Elvis was in heaven.  So many packs to run with.  He was being chased by so many different dogs, it was hard to keep track of him.  But, he’s a good little boy and likes to come check in and let us know he’s ok.  Sometimes he runs up to us, then runs after a pup, then back to us.  I think he is showing us which pup he’s playing with.  Maybe to see if we approve?  Hah.  K thinks it is so we’ll watch him.  Either way, I like that he checks in 🙂  During a trip to the water fountain, all three dogs had to take a dip in the mud-puddle that had formed near the fountain.  That was fun.  We spent the rest of the time there trying to get them to stay in the sun to dry off.  Impossible.  I felt bad for the parents of this all-white bulldog who decided to lay and then roll around in the puddle.  He was no longer white.  After the dog park we took the pups to the trail we discovered last weekend and we hoped to stop at the restaurant that backs up to the trail.  Well, it was packed.  Everyone was out to enjoy the nice weather.  So, we didn’t get to stay and eat with the pups.  Maybe next time.  We did pick up dinner on the way home and we sat outside on our patio and enjoyed our food.  I still can’t believe it is the end of January and we were sitting outside for dinner.  This is my kind of “winter.”

So, I hope you enjoyed hearing about our weekend, and not looking at pictures.  I promise, I will be better next time!  I will take more pictures!

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your day,
{d&k}
