Vets, Mayo, & Pretty Baskets

It's Monday.

Is it just me or does it seem like the weekends are going by faster and faster? 

Steven and I had a lot to get done this weekend, but we still managed to squeeze in some fun time too. 

Saturday morning Huck has his 1 year old vet checkup. He's a healthy boy with perfect gums and teeth and the ideal body weight! YAY! Proud fur mama right here. But to say he was nervous is an understatement. He was hiding under tables, chairs, my legs....and his heart was beating a million miles a minute! :( Poor buddy.
So to make up for his traumatic experience, we went for a nice long 7 mile hike! It was intense! I'm pretty sore from the endeavor but it was definitely worth it. Plus, I got some hilarious photos of Huck.
Okay, apparently my dog runs funny.
Wait Mom! I want in the photo too!
Then we did some shopping in lieu of our yeast free diet. So far, I have not been able to find any mayonnaise (like this one here) in nearby stores that meets our diet's guidelines, so I decided to make my own. Hello, tuna and chicken salad!! Nom. Nom.
It may not look like mayo, but it tastes pretty darn similar.

And then I bought these pretty little wire baskets that the hubby is going to hang up in our pantry for onions, potatoes, lemons and limes! 
Speaking of my pantry...did I ever tell you that I painted my pantry door blue like this one on Pinterest? How about some photos when the projects complete?

Also this weekend Steven and I were able to visit our friend's beautiful, newborn baby boy in the hospital. I would share photos of his cuteness but I feel as though I should have a consent form signed before I post photos of other peoples children on my blog ;)

Hope your weekend was full of fun and adventure as well! To see more photos of my weekend shenanigans follow along on Instagram or Twitter! (yep, I am self promoting.)

It looks like you had such a great time in the hike. I agree that weekends keepgetting shorter!

I make guacamole and add that to chicken, tuna, or eggs to make salads since I'm not a mayo fan.

Love the blue door!

I love the idea of the blue door! It would look so cute!

my dog is terrified of the vet. all 110 pounds of him tries to hide under my chair, until someone opens the door and then he tries to make a run for it.

good luck on your yeast free diet! let me know how it goes.

It sounds like you had a great weekend!
I've been wanting to get out to the local park and go for a walk (mostly for pictures) lately...but it's just too cold!
Definitely following on Twitter :)

I bet the door looks great.
Poor scared Huck. :(

Awesome pictures! That sounds like a great weekend! I wish I could take my boy Elvis for a hike like that but he's so hyper he just runs and runs until he's gone and we have to go look for him again. He's also shorter than the snow so that would be too funny.

Glad Huck had such a great vet appointment - poor guy looks so nervous!
I LOVE the pictures of Huck running, he does look like he runs a little funny ;D
Can't wait to see pictures of the door!

Hi there! I have ventured over from the GFC blog hop. I'm enjoying this little peak into your world! Just lovely! XOXO, Mandi @ All My Happy Endings

That picture of your hubby with Huck running up is priceless! Love it.

Poor Huck at the vet. My German Shepherd is the same, her back legs shake and all. And yet our little dog (we're not sure what she is, prob part terrier) isn't bothered at all. It's like the bigger they are...the more baby they act.

Your kitchen must look amazing! Would love to see pictures.
