Husband Hoarding and A Happy Pupper Birthday

Friday was a very special day for the Phelps fam! Little Jenny turned 3 years old! Was Friday (July 5th) actually her birthday? I can almost guarantee it wasn't, but that's one of the joys that comes with a rescue pup. We adopted her February 5, 2011, and they told us she was about 6 months old. We decided 6 months from then (July 5th) would be her birthday. We celebrated with a nature walk, lots of treats, and a few new toys that are of course already destroyed.



Our sweet neighbor gave Jenny a toy and a birthday cookie. I couldn't even handle the cuteness...heart melted!


Saturday was a complete and total us day. We have lived here two months, and this is only our second weekend at home. Ridiculous, right? We had been looking forward to a day of just us with no distractions or road trips, and Saturday was just what the doctor ordered.

We have been watching Wimbledon almost every day, so we have had the itch to get out on the court and pretend we can even come close to hitting like the pros. It was sad yall, completely sad. We had fun though! We even played under a light rain, and playing any sport in the rain will make you feel like a rock star. We took a quick dip in the pool after a couple hours of tennis. Side note: the value of a pool largely decreases when it's raining outside. We ran errands that afternoon and came back home for a nice little date night in ala Redbox and Bluebell. Speaking of that, has anyone seen Side Effects? It didn't get a lot of press, but it's so good! That was our second time to see it and we both loved it.

Call us the boringtons, but it doesn't get much better in our book than a date night in.


Sunday we went paddle boarding with some friends, and I'll so a post on that later in the week! We came back sunburned and exhausted, and let's just say when that alarm went off this morning, it was rough. So much fun though and totally worth it. Hope you all had a great weekend too!

Well just everything about this is a-ok in my book! Namely the Blue Bell and paddleboarding. I'll be over next weekend so we can recreate those happenings. Sound good? Ok, great.

Jenny is such a sweetie! A date night sounds so great right now! Even a nice, calm one. Just some "me and you" time. I started dating someone right before I came to Italy and now I miss date night. So I'm jealous.
