Quick Weekend Recap.


Keeping it short and sweet this Monday morning for a quick weekend recap.
 
Friday I didn't have to be to work until late, so Brady and I decided to test out his Halloween costume that came in the mail the day before. What do y'all think? :)
Rawr.
Saturday was an early morning of getting ready for our annual Dogtoberfest event at Freshfields! Swung by Dunkin Donuts to pick up donuts for the staff. Managed to keep myself from eating the entire 2 dozen, keeping myself to only one.
 
Set up from 9:30am-1pm and then the event was underway! There was a doggy costume contest, wine tasting, beer, vendors and raffles. All money raised will be split evenly and given to all of the dog rescues that participated! What a fun event!

A prisoner under maximum security and a cop. Too cute.
 
 
Sunday was a much needed low key day. I woke up and put this pot roast in the crockpot. It claims to be "Best Pot Roast Ever," but we were not convinced. Next time, I'll be trying Pioneer Woman's recipe. Did some laundry, then made Caroline's chocolate chip blondie recipe. After that, Brady and I went for a long walk with Emily and her pups. Perfect Sunday!

  2. I can't get over Brady's costume. That rules. Please let him wear it year round and take him to the farmers market!

  3. I love dog events! Sadly, there is none where we live.

    Also, there is nothing better than dogs in costumes.

  5. Brady is a very handsome lion! Our doodle is going to be the horse to the headless horseman. Hopefully she will stand still long enough and not try to eat her costume so I can get a picture. So jealous you have Krispy Kreme close by! It's all Dunkin up here.

  13. Such a cute little lion Brady is! Also, if you're interested in a delish pot roast, you absolutely MUST try the Mississippi Roast in a crockpot-- you will not be sorry. I've tried the recipe that you weren't impressed with-- I have to agree, it just doesn't have IT. This MS roast is just beyond fabulous, though.

    I just did a random Google search and came up with tons of results: http://queenbeecoupons.com/crockpot-slow-cooker-pot-roast-mississippi-roast-recipe/

  14. Brady is adorable! Hate that the Pot Roast didn't live up to your expectations. I bet the Pioneer Woman's version will be better. She's never let me down with a recipe. Looks like you had a good weekend!
