Warm Summer Weekend

Is it really Monday again?  After a long last weekend (4 days off), this weekend flew by in an instant.  Plus I had to work all day Friday and that was torture.  But this weekend was pretty amazing, and I am really loving the warm summery weather.  Summer and June are finally here and I couldn't be happier.  We have weddings, vacations and trips to the beach in the calendar.

But let me get back to the weekend.  As you all know, I worked all day Friday which threw off my entire day.  I didn't get any errands done that I needed to (drop off paperwork for our fertility appointment, oops) nor did I do my last Pilates Summer Series .  You best bet I will finish tonight plus start over.  I love this series and want to continue to do it on days I can't make it to the gym.  Like tonight since it is my father-in-laws birthday celebration.

Friday night my husband and I went on a mini date night.  We went to one of my favorite restaurants Campo and it was fantastic as always.  We shared this amazing warm golden beet salad with goat cheese and balsamic onions.  I need to recreate this salad.  Then I had the spinach-herb gnocchi with mushrooms, spinach and this mascarpon etruffle cream sauce.  Oh I could eat that everyday, every meal.
My husband had Squid Ink Taglioni which was good, but mine was to die for.  I wish I had a plate for breakfast right about now.  Again, I am always hungry.

But dinner wouldn't be complete without the best dessert I have ever had.  And if you know me, you know I love cheesecake and cupcakes, but this takes the prize by a landslide.  If you are ever in Reno, please go to Campo, even if it is just for this dessert.
The Caramel Budino - chocolate wafer crunch, salted caramel and whipped cream.

I may have had one of these by myself more times than I can count.  Maybe.

Saturday morning was tough and neither Walter nor I wanted to get out of bed.  It was so bad for Walter that he kept climbing under the covers while Mommy was getting ready.

But as you saw, I did get out of bed to write a post about my guest post on September Farm.  Thank you for all of my new followers and lovers of my stories.  I have a few more posts coming featuring some of the other stories I mentioned, so get ready for that.

And I also said I was going to Garwoods for a wet woody, and that we did.  But first, R talked me into getting a boba tea.  It wasn't that hard of a sale.

Plus the view was beyond beautiful.  We always seem to score the seats right by the water in the beautiful sunshine.  It was a nice 72 degrees.  I couldn't have asked for a better day.

We drover through King's Beach and stopped at a doggie treat store to buy Walter treats because he is spoiled and deserves them.  Then we headed to some bbq and a scenic drive home.  Great little Saturday.

Sunday I watched my husband, Dad and Dad's best friend try to fix out sprinkler system.  Not fun, they all got frustrated and it will have to be finished in two weeks.  Then it was onto boring Sunday chores....laundry, vacuum, dust, cooking and grocery shopping.  But we did get in a nice walk with Walter and then did a bunch more gardening.  Four new tomato plants planted and harvested some veggies.

This little dude did get a bath last night and I think he was too tired to fight it.  But now he smells so good, is so soft and cuddly.  It was worth it buddy.

Well that wraps up my weekend.  Hope you enjoyed yours.
