Sunday Snippets: The Awkward Dog Edition

Last Updated on

It’s Sunday, and we all know what that means! Sunday Snippets!

This past week has been a good, but challenging one. I am thankful that this weekend has been a relaxing one after all the craziness and traveling around I’ve done in the past week. (1,000+ miles in less than 3 days? Done and done.)

Here’s what I got:

Sunday Snippets for 1-27-2013 // The Speckled Palate

1. This is our dog seated in her chair on Friday night after I’d been sharing the seat with her.

2. She didn’t budge an inch until I removed the pillow. To make matters funnier, she didn’t even seem to notice and clearly wasn’t in pain after contorting her body into this funny position while sharing the chair with me.

3. Our friends found this hilarious, and so did we. So much so that I took several photos of Lu in this goofy position.

4. Clearly, Lucy Belle was not amused. (Check out that look on the sweet puppy’s face!)

5. We stopped at a little Czech bakery (located inside a gas station) in West, Texas for kolaches on our way to San Antonio for my Uncle Bud’s funeral.

6. If this bakery was in my town, I guarantee I’d be going daily for savory AND sweet kolaches… and then proceeding to run a LOT more than I do to offset the kolache addiction.

7. Sometime soon, I’m learning how to make my own kolaches. And then, we will ALL be in trouble.

8. Yesterday, we completed the grown-up trifecta of (1) car shopping, (2) hardware store searching and (3) drapery and curtain rod hanging.

9. Since the grown-up-ness of the whole day stressed us out a bit, I baked cookies.

10. As evidenced by the photo above, I don’t plan on becoming a game show hostess, but I’d like to think that I have a convincing, excited smile to show everyone how proud I am of our newly hung curtains.

    Can you please learn how to make those kolaches soon? I am yearning for some poppy seed kolaches. P.S. ~ Curtains are lookin’ good.

      I will certainly learn how to make them soon, and I will let you know the winning recipe. It’s gonna be good/bad. And THANK YOU. The room is now empty, but those curtains are making it look oh-so-stylish. We’re thinking it’s time to start decorating that room. Ha.

    That dog of yours is both hilarious and adorable, without trying very hard. And those cookies look delicious (and are very well deserved)!

    • Erin

      Haha, thank you, Nilsa! She really is. And those cookies were a delightful addition to the afternoon. They were a Martha Stewart recipe, and I may or may not have been eating some of the leftover cookie dough this afternoon. Oops?

    Dogs put themselves in the most awkward positions imaginable! I love the curtains!

    • Erin

      They really do! And they’re so funny about it, too, because it doesn’t bother them, in the least. And thank you — we’re so pleased with the curtains. Now, it’s time to get to decorating the rest of that room. Currently, it’s empty. 😉
