Friday Favorites 6/24

Happy Friday! I’ve been slacking big time on my Friday Favorites lately, but I’m trying to get back on the blogging wagon! Have a wonderful weekend!

Puppies!: On Thursday, an animal rescue came to our office with some adoptable puppies and kittens. Best. Work. Distraction. Ever. They were all SO cute, I hope they found new owners 😀

Thing I bought: We have been wanting some Adirondack chairs for our patio for awhile now, but haven’t been able to find any for a reasonable price. So of course, when I walked into Target and saw these for $5, I put two in my cart immediately. Yes, they’re plastic, but they’re still pretty good quality, and they’re FIVE DOLLARS. I think they’ll do for now. I’ll share pics when the space is done!

Thing I’m Eating: My first jar of Wild Friends Peanut Butter was the Cinnamon Raisin, and I was immediately hooked. I grabbed this one the other day and I just want to eat it by the spoonful! Chocolate and coconut are two of my favorite things, and this does NOT disappoint!! Perfect in oats, yogurt, or just by the spoonful..I can’t wait to try more flavors!

Making Lists and Checking Them Twice: I found this adorable notebook at TJMaxx the other day and just love it! It’s perfectly for jotting down thoughts and notes while at work!

Charlie Pic: I just about died when I got an email at work yesterday saying that the first 30 people to respond could bring their dog to work today. Not even kidding, my coworker and I had a bit of a moment!! Charlie is very shy around people, but he’s very well behaved, so I thought it would be fun to participate. Did I get any work done today? Probably not, but it was so much fun having him there, and he was quite popular and SO well behaved! I guess going to work is not so bad when you can take a nap for most of the day!

Weekend Recap: Sanibel Island

Summer is officially upon us here in Southwest Florida. We got our first “summer rain” last night, and woke up to find it nice and HUMID! Luckily, we made the most of our last fair-weathered weekend with a trip to Sanibel Island! It’s only about 30 minutes from our house to the Sanibel Lighthouse, but we really don’t make it there nearly enough. Now that season is over and the traffic is gone we decided it was time to take a trip. They are dog friendly as long as they’re on leashes, so we decided to get there early and bring along Charlie!

He found the waves a bit scary and wouldn’t go more than paw deep into the water, but he definitely enjoyed sniffing around and people watching from under the umbrella! We enjoyed the fact that the beach was nice and quiet early in the day!

Afterwards we went to a pet friendly restaurant that has been on our ‘To Try List’ for quite awhile, The Island Cow. Wow! We loved this place!! It’s definitely going to be a regular stop for us whenever we’re out on Sanibel Island. I want to come back for breakfast next time!

They give you muffins to start with but we devoured them too quick to even think about taking a picture. They were so good! The crabcake salad was excellent as well!

After lunch we headed home to rest a bit before heading to our first Fort Myers Miracle game of the season. The score was still 0-0 when we left in the 10th inning, but for us the games are really more about hanging out with friends and having a few beers, so we didn’t mind to much!

Sunday was the usual: brunch and preparing for the week ahead, a nice and relaxing way to end a fabulous weekend! Happy Tuesday, friends!
