Saturday was a really nice day for me. It was a mix of fun and relaxation. I woke up, ate breakfast, and went to CrossFit (WOD: rowing + Thrusters = killer).

On my way home from CrossFit, I hit up the grocery store to do our shopping for the upcoming week.

After grocery shopping, Mal and I went to our friend Erin’s graduation party. She just finished her Master’s degree, so we went to celebrate with her (and Ping, who is the happiest pug alive).

An ice cream sundae bar!!! Ooooh, yes, it did. Mal and I were like kids on Christmas when we heard about the ice cream. Haha! We shared a sundae with coffee and mint chocolate chip ice cream, topped with hot fudge, caramel sauce, M&Ms, pretzels, and whipped cream. Holy yum!

After Erin’s party, Mal and I headed home and then took Murphy for a late afternoon walk. The weather was beautiful, but it was a little too hot for pugs.

Or maybe Murphy is just a drama queen? Doesn’t he sort of look like a flying squirrel all sprawled out on our living room floor? (He’s trying to cool himself off.)
