I needed this weekend. While I did work on Friday night and Sunday afternoon I had all day Saturday to lounge around and spend time with my menfolk. Dave and I lead such opposite weeks that on the weekends he just wants to stay home (as he should since he's at work all week) and I've been cooped up in the house all week that all I want to do is leave it. Thankfully Dave gets me and knows what I need and we took a trip into Tampa on Saturday. 
We strolled along the Riverwalk and ate a nice quiet lunch together at a cute little restaurant over looking the water. I never tire of the sunshine and palm trees!
Finley was mostly good this weekend with a couple of time outs here and there. We've sectioned off a little space where he goes for time out if he bites or doesn't listen. We wanted to make sure that we weren't using his crate as punishment since he sleeps there and spends time during the day in there when we're not home. Doesn't seem to be too effective to me yet, but Dave swears he's biting him more gently now. Maybe I'm just too nice, but I'm still being bitten like I'm a chew toy. No fun.

Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. Nicole was teaching Josh timeout because he has started pinching her. So now he pinches her and then walks over and sits in his timeout chair;)

  2. It seems like you had a lovely weekend. It's always great to have a sweet time of rest :)

  3. Oooh, sounds like such a great weekend! I love Riverwalk :) And yes--E and I ran into this problem a lot this summer haha. He was always tired and craving home and I was bouncing on my toes to get outside! Glad you guys found a good compromise :) Just think, when I get back, we can let the men rest at home while we go have some fun ;)


I love hearing from you so please leave a comment, however keep in mind "Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
