I’m So Fancy

What it is about holidays weekend that makes them fly by? They are extended weekends, but seem so short. Maybe it’s all the fun involved?

Saturday morning, I slept in again and it was glorious! Well, I did get up at 6:15 AM to tell OMG Becky “Good Morning” and “Goodbye” before she headed off to work. Then it was back to bed for me for another hour of sleep. So nice!

And then it was off to the woods for Stella and I. The humidity was low and I wanted to eat hike some hills for breakfast.

There were so many flowers in bloom on this particular trail!


I also came across something that I couldn’t figure out what the heck it was…

Snowberry Clearwing Hummingbird Moth

See the yellow and black thing hovering over the purple flower on the left? (I really need a better camera!) At first, I thought it was a bumblebee, but it was hovering and beating it’s wings, so I decided it was a hummingbird. Wrong. Research today determined it was a Snowberry Clearwing Hummingbird Moth. A moth! Such an impostor.

We got a few miles in before the humidity found us. We were hot, dirty, and sticky. Ugh, summer in the Midwest.

I rewarded myself with a pedicure!ย This color is really had to photograph. (I’m sure it had nothing to do with my photography skills.)

It’s more neon orange in person. It’s going to look great with the tan I plan on getting on vacation here shortly!ย Sorry Stella, no pawdicure for you this time.

Yesterday after church, OMG Becky and I did a little vacation prep shopping.

sunhats, sunglasses

We are so fancy. She bought her accessories. I did not. I just don’t like how I look in them. None of them. Ever. But I keep trying! Someday I am going to find the hat for me.

Yesterday was also an awesome day because Sassy came home! Happy days are here again! Stella was excited to see her and needed to burn some energy. A trip to the dog park would do it. Sassy had never been. Lucky girl met a boxer that gave her a welcome gift all over her leg as soon as we walked in.

Mmmm, dog drool. I shouldn’t have laughed because 20 seconds later a muddy German Shepard pup larger that Stella jumped on me. It never fails. Dogs love me. I think I’ve told you, I’m not really a dog person, but they keep trying to change my mind.

Another exciting thing about this weekend? I tried a new recipe!

white enchiladas

White Enchiladas! These were delicious. Both of my girls, a friend, and I all really liked them. They will have to make another appearance soon.

Update: These enchiladas do not reheat well. At least not in the microwave! Next time, I will make the same amount, but then divide it up into two smaller casserole dishes, freezing one for a future meal.

Enchiladas. Red or white sauce? White!ย 

Are you a hat person?
