Brunch, cake, and running the Greenway

I hope you all had a good Labor Day. My 3 day weekend was great!

My Friday started off with welcoming home my youngest sister and her husband, who have been in Zimbabwe for 4 months. I just felt like a piece of my heart was missing when she was gone. We are SO happy she's home!
All of us sisters had a get together brunch. Sister time is the best!

Friday night my fam got together for dinner, and my twinnie made a couple of her incredible, famous cakes. Key lime, and lemon raspberry cake.

Saturday Jeremy and I went to Cleveland, TN to visit a friend of ours. She took us on a tour of the very small town, and her huge university. (Lee)
 Sunday morning I ran 8 miles on the Greenway. It was really beautiful. Again, I'm so jealous of people who have places like this to run, right out their back door! It was flat, paved, some of it went through the woods, it was great. Perfect weather too.

I fell in love with her dog Boomer. He's in the final stages of congestive heart failure, so doesn't have much longer to live. (So sad) She's had him for 14 years.
 I have never seen a more cuddly dog. He is seriously like a little human. He just wants to be held, rocked and loved, it's so cute. She's definitely making sure his final days are happy.

And that was my weekend! Tell me about yours!!


  1. How precious is Boomer!? Senior pups pull at my heartstrings anyway though, but that he's in end-stage of CHF ... :(

    Is your sister back to stay or just for a visit? 4 months in Zimbabwe sounds like an amazing experience!

    I don't know if I could resist that lemon raspberry cake -- looks divine!

    Busy weekend here -- but I got my (almost) 14 miles in! Thankful for coolish weather but summer came back with a vengeance. Yuck ...

  2. Awww, the puppy is so sweet!! Love snugglers. And those cakes look divine!!

    1. I know, now I wish my Yorkie was a snuggler Its probably my fault that he isn't though. The cakes were SO good!!

  3. Oh gosh... breaks my heart. Bruno is having a hard time & I'm afraid he wont be around much longer... I cant handle when fur babies are sick.
    So glad you got some good family time in!!!
