I know that I already lied to you once about how well my dog Cooper does when he’s home alone, and I promise not to make it a habit, but I lied again. Last Friday when I said that I was having an easy week? I jinxed it. Everyone knows not to say things like that, but for some reason I thought that the rules didn’t apply to blogging. HA! Yeah right. Approximately 20 minutes after I hit “publish” the S hit the fan. I ended up staying late at work, which was unfortunate, but luckily I got to come home to a happy husband and sleepy puppy. They’re my favorite things to see at the end of a long day.
We didn’t end up hiking this weekend, which is kind of a bummer. The weather was absolutely perfect for it on Saturday but I made the mistake of starting to re-read “Mockingjay”, the third “Hunger Games” book, and I accidentally sat on the couch and read all day long. All. Day. Long. I did play with Coop in the yard for a while, but mostly he sat in my lap, or on my feet, or in that special space behind my knees where a triangle formed by my calves, my thighs and the back of the couch. He’s a sweet little boy 🙂 Michael went to the gym and then worked on some homework, but we had a pretty chill Saturday.
Sunday, though, we went to the University District Street Fair where our friend’s band was performing. One of our buddies came to our house so that we could carpool to the city. I’m always surprised when I see him, because I feel like Michael is a pretty big guy, but this guy is a beast.
Michael looks like a regular sized human being compared to this dude!
We celebrated another friend’s birthday at the fair by rocking out to her boyfriend’s band Velcro Mindset. They were so good! We had karaoked together before, so I knew that the singer had an awesome voice, but hearing his band play was really interesting. They have a great local Seattle rock sound and their lyrics are sharp.
After the band played we got some craft beer and gyros. At the bar, we saw a puppy that was a Cooper look-a-like! The friend whose birthday we were celebrating had a little foot-in-mouth moment though when we were talking to the owner – she kept saying “show him a picture of Cooper!” but his pup was a seeing eyed dog… oops! He was so gracious though, and didn’t make her feel any worse than she already did. The dog was smaller than my dog Cooper, but they had such similar markings and they even made the same facial expressions.
Once we were done eating, we headed over to a karaoke bar where we all rocked everyone’s faces off! A spectacular finish to a much needed weekend.
What did you do this weekend?
