Hello Handsome…

Basil is so modest. Just look at that face. It just screams “Don’t look at me… Wait, don’t look away!”

"Are you talking about me?!"
“Are you talking about me?!”
"Oh no, stop."
“Oh no, stop.”
"Actually no, go on!"
“Actually no, go on!”

This is also a little sneak peak of Basil upcoming Outfit of the day series that starts October 1st. We’ll post daily OOTD’s of all of Basil’s adorable doggie wears.

How is your week going? Is your dog this “humble?”

Go take a hike! Snoqualmie Falls!

So yesterday was so nice outside we decided to head over to Snoqualmie and check out the falls. If you haven’t been to the Snoqualmie Falls before it is a very large, very beautiful waterfall. The park has many different overlooks, a gift shop, and what feels like every single tourist in Washington state. This is probably why we haven’t been in a while.

We enjoyed the short hike down to the bottom of the 270 foot falls and even sat on a large stone in the middle of the river.

Basil had a great time and “marked” every tree and fern along the trail. It should probably be called Basil’s Falls, from now on. Snoqualmie RiverSnoqualmie FallsBottom of Snoqualmie Falls

"Hey guys, lets go this way!"
“Hey guys, lets go this way!”
Top of the falls. Basil is not impressed.

Don’t let the tourist scare you off. If you get the chance to check out the falls defiantly take it.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Now on to the most important Sunday item… Football! Go Hawks!

It’s almost the freakin’ weekend! 

Yay it’s Friday! We decided to go on a little afternoon bike ride on this unusually hot September day; it’s 84 in Seattle… That’s madness!

We used our “new” (yard sale find!!) bike trailer, strapped Basil in like he was a 5 year old human child and we were off.

The ride wasn’t very long because of the heat but we still had an awesome time. I can’t wait until it’s actually fall here so we can use this sweet ride more often. Check out the video I shot and also my ridiculous bike selfie!

  

Thanks YouTuber Jenna Marbles for this idea. We are having a ton of fun with it!

A Snowy Evening walk

Well, they said 6 to 10 inches of snow… That didn’t happen! We woke up this morning to clear roads and little bits of snowy yards. But last night was beautiful!

Last night Nate, Basil, and I went and visited my parents and on the walk back we got to enjoy a true peaceful winter wonderland.

Although our dreams of a full blown snow day with hot chocolate and sledding down our hill didn’t happen, some snow is better than no snow!

Hope you are doing well! Stay warm, stay safe, and stay happy!

A sorta snow day…

So last night and today the south and the east coast was hit with arctic temps and a mix of snow and ice. Although its been pretty cold here in North Carolina its nothing compared to what is happening in the Northeast. Places like Boston are getting hit super hard and have a ton of snow.

We woke up this morning with a thick layer of ice covering everything but little to no snow. This was probably a huge hassle for those who have to commute but for us work-from-homers it was a little be of a disappointment. We want snow! Fluffy beautiful snow! Enjoy these photos of our afternoon walk while I silently sing “Let it snow” to myself…
