Weekend of Cards

So we lost an hour this weekend. 

I have to be honest, I got way more sleep than any other weekend I can remember and I am thrilled about it. All that I would have done with that extra hour would have been watch another episode of House of Cards or maybe I would have actually folded the two loads of laundry that currently are in piles on my couch. One pile for workout clothes, the other "pile" draped over the back of the couch because the clothes need to be hung and maybe steamed. I need to get on Kathy's level, quick. 

But House of Cards - I mowed through 15 episodes and I can't stop. Thanks for the recommendation blog-land! Don't spoil anything for me, I'm on Chapter 16 and feel like I'll be done before the end of this week.

Other than binge-watch tv, I house-sat watching two rambunctious golden retriever puppies that wouldn't sit still long enough for me to capture a great photo. On the left is Bella, just 14 months. On the top of the right photo is Bailey - 2.5 years old. They're wild and crazy sisters who enjoy chewing, jumping up on me, re-enacting wild kingdom fights and "going to school" where they earn treats for sitting, laying and playing dead.

Dad and I hung out Sunday while mom is off playing in Texas and and we flirted with the idea of hitting the slopes tomorrow. We both haven't been and there's some weeknight beginner lessons that look pretty friendly for a snow-shy girl like me. My only experience on the mountain is when I was in high school and my sweet brother took me up for snowboarding with some friends. Then my sweet brother also said "have fun!" as he raced down the mountain and I was stuck unable to stop myself without hundreds of bruises to go with it. It's okay, I forgive him. Let's hope for better results this time!

Last bit - you'll see that I changed up a few things on my sidebar. Little more organized, yeah? Someday I'll land on a photo I really like, but for now this is my favorite of the "hey, look it's my hair and I'm happy" selfies. You bet your face you're going to see more! 

How was your weekend? Joining in with these ladies:

So what you're saying is, I should start watching House of Cards. Sigh. So many shows to watch!

Those puppies are so, so cute though.

Do it! Hit the slopes! Just don't get into a fight with a tree on your way down like I did. True story.

I'm just glad the sun doesn't go down until after 7pm now! Big plus for me! (ok everyone loves HOC- I may have to start watching...)

HOUSE OF CARDS YEAHHHHH!!!

how great was the first episode of season 2!? i was all alone in the house, naturally, and i actually yelled out loud and had a full on moment with myself over it. OMG. I'm so excited you're watching it so we can talk about it!

I also caught up on a lot of sleep and Netflix and it was glorious! Sometimes a weekend of "nothing" can be everything.

House of Cards!!! How will I last until next year?!?! I've never done a single winter sport in my life...I feel...unaccomplished.

Lauren said...

I was wondering where those dogs came from. Also it baffles my mind that you can just up and go skiing for a day whenever you want. Crazy.
