How is it Monday already? Am I right, or am.i.right. Sorry for the lack of posts this past week but WOW having a puppy is hard work. It’s been an exhausting week to say the least.
So, let’s start with Friday. After work, I took the train home and met Ben and Cora for dinner. Cora was being super sassy, so Ben and I ate dinner while she calmed down. A little bit later, we headed over to Cone to get some ice cream.
After ice cream, we headed over to Mariano’s (a local grocery store) to pick up my prescriptions and a few odds and ends. One of those being this Fairlife Chocolate Milk, which I did not know existed until Ben pointed it out to me. Lactose-free?! Yay! Plus, Cora approves. 😉
PLUS, we found peonies (my favorite flower everevereverever) and Ben bought me some. 🙂
Once we got home, we cuddled up with the pup for the rest of the night and ended our night.
Saturday Ben woke up early with the puppy (thank GOD for him, because I struggle with mornings). He put her back to bed and took off to meet his clients, so Cora and I woke up and headed off to the vet! She did very well in the car and the vet, so I was pretty proud of her. She absolutely loves people, so she’s adorable when people are paying attention to her.
We got home, ate and hung out until Ben came over after work. Cora was super lethargic from her shots, so Ben and I took advantage of that and headed over to Taste of Randolph.
We tried out Bombo Bar’s Cooler Chocolate, which was incredible and then walked through the crowds for a bit more before deciding we’d rather head to a restaurant instead of eating a meal at vendors.
While walking out, we got caught in a crazy downpour – worked out because it cooled us down a bit!
Once we got home, we brought Cora outside to go to the bathroom and she fell back asleep, so we didn’t feel bad leaving her again for dinner. This time we ran out to Little Bad Wolf for a burger and a quick drink.
We went pretty early (around 5 pm) so we didn’t have a wait, which was nice. The burger was reallllllly good and the fries were incredible. Highly recommend, and I’m not a huge “burger” girl.
Obviously the lighting was not optimal, but you get the point. 😉
On the ride home, Ben made the quick decision to pop off an exit and go sit down by the lake while the sun set. He really does know the way to my heart … or at least the best way to chill me out!
The rest of the night we hung out with the pup while watching Madagascar 3. We ended up going to bed pretty early, which was a pretty successful day.
Sunday we slept in a bit (well, after Ben got up with Cora around 6:30 to take her out) before we headed out to The Breakfast Club for a “Father’s Day” breakfast since Ben is now a puppy dad. 😉 Ben got chicken and waffles, while I got a California Benedict (with the sauce on the side because #lactoseintolerant). Not a super trendy place, but it was still good!
After breakfast, we quickly picked up his sister and headed out to the ‘burbs with Cora. I’m sad I didn’t get to see my dad on this Father’s Day, but unfortunately that’s the price I pay for living in a different state. I hung out with Ben’s family for a bit before heading off to Starbucks to get a little bit of work done. Of course once I got there, I realized I forgot half the stuff I needed to do in my rush to get out the door this morning, so it was a quick trip.
Once back at the house, we all had dinner and continued to wear out the pup.
We got in the car and Cora PASSED OUT. She slept pretty much the whole way home.
Once home, she got a little antsy (my neighbors constantly play loud music so she thought she should be outside playing) so we put her in her crate to calm down and she passed out again.
And that’s pretty much my weekend!
How was your weekend? Did you celebrate Father’s Day?
