Day Off

Nick and I both have the day off today for MLK Jr’s Birthday, so we’re enjoying a lazy morning so far.

No alarm clock.

Breakfast in pajamas.

French press coffee.

Bacon and eggs.

And snuggling with Maggie :)


Nick made us some coffee, bacon, and eggs (with smoked paprika – yum), while I sliced up a cara cara orange for us to split.


Have you ever seen these oranges? I found them a few months ago, but hadn’t seen them in the store until Saturday – they’re so good! They’re pink inside like a grapefruit, but they just taste like the best orange you’ve ever had.


Right now, we’re all just hanging out on the couch, watching the news, and digesting :)

No real plans except for a puppy play date this afternoon! We’ll be going out later today with Ross and Jen and their dogs, Rosie and Jackson, for some fun outside time.

Maggie is going to have a blast – and the weather should be pretty nice today, so we’ll have fun getting out of the house.


*Last chance to enter the giveaway! Winner will be announced around lunchtime :)


Best part of your weekend?

Mine had to be:

  • Glen Alton Farm with Nick and Maggie
  • Dinner last night with friends, good food, and awesome live/local music
