Relaxing Sunday

This morning I slept till 8:45. Hallelujah. Compared to my weekday 5 am wake-up calls, that is glorious. Today is my REST day. That means no working out and letting my body recover from all the workouts I put it through during the week:) I lounged around, sipped on some coffee, then got to work on breakfast.

I’ve been craving something with blueberries I am not really sure why. I contemplated on making pancakes, French toast, or something to that nature but I remembered seeing this recipe on Courtney’s blog a while back.

I printed it out and had all the ingredients! Except the buttermilk but used the lemon juice and milk trick. I also only had plain Greek yogurt instead of Vanilla flavored but it worked like a charm. I highly recommend heading over to her blog and making these muffins right now because they were AWESOME. Thanks Courtney! They definitely didn’t taste “healthy” but they absolutely were. Win!

For all of you who like a visual, I took pictures of the process:

015

I HAD to top with some almond butter because I just got this new Barney butter at the store. One of the best nut butters ever.

Obviously peaches on the side 8)

After breakfast, it was time to take Bentley to the dog park!!

021

Yay! He was excited to go “bye bye car”.

018

I’m such a good photographer. Jealous of my skills? I could’ve sworn I was looking at the camera…

017

His tongue grows like 20 feet long when he is hot and thirsty! I love it.

026

The dog park we go to is part of a HUGE park. It is so pretty there! It has a 5 mile loop for running, different fields for sports like baseball, golf, etc. Everyone goes there to bike, run, rollerblade, etc. I can’t wait for it to cool off so I can run here!

027

This cracks me up. He was obviously a huge hit at the doggie park 😉 I don’t think he likes getting his butt sniffed so he sat. Can you blame him? He’s a pre-Madonna. Wonder where he gets that from?

It was poppin’ today! There were so many cute doggies running around and having a great time. I am in love with dogs and I want more. I think I cried to my mom telling her we need to go puppy shopping.

030

I need to get him an agent. I don’t understand how something can be this beautiful. I’m crazy, I know.

029

He hates me.

032

That tongue.

It was TOO HOT outside. Cool front my a**. I guess it was cooler by like one degree. Instead of 98 it was probably 97. I’m too impatient and want cool weather now ;D Bentley had a blast but was super hot and tired so we decided to go home a while later.

035

Now he loves me<3

036

He took the BIGGEST nap when we got home. Snoring and all. I’d call that a success!

While he was asleep, we did the only logical thing to do in Florida.

037

Went shopping. Now I’m about to drown myself in homework:) I hope you all have an amazing rest of your weekend!

 

 

If you have a dog, do you take him or her to the dog park?

Favorite thing to bake?

What do your weekend breakfasts look like?

Best part of your weekend?

  2. You seriously do have the cutest dog ever! Explains why he was so popular at the park! I totally get you and your whole “I don’t understand how something can be this beautiful”. I feel the exact same way but I don’t have a puppy yet. I have to wait until next year I think. But I want a tiny one like yours! Those muffins look amazing and so easy to make. Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. Those look like the perfect blueberry muffins! And I slept until 8:30 this morning instead of the usual 5-5:15 like you and it was the best decision ever. I’m also switching my routine to make Sundays my rest days again. I missed having them off too much.

  4. Those muffins look SO GOOD! I’m craving one now! 😀
    Aww! I love puppies! 🙂
    I love baking cookies, muffins and cake! My weekend breakfasts were pretty boring..oatmeal and cereal with fruit 🙂
