Attack of the Snake Sprinkler

Throughout the night little Miss Sadie was one restless sleeper. She hasn’t been allowed to sleep in the bed lately, but last night I was worried about her belly from the poopie incident earlier that day and let her cuddle up to me. She was antsy all night long which made my decision about what to do for my morning workout an easy one: a run with the pup!

She’s used to me heading out the door for the gym in the morning before she gets her daily walk, so when she saw me head for her leash instead of my gym bag, she spun around in circles!

After running for 50 minutes, I gave Sadie a pat on her head for a run-well-done. She immediately grabbed a stick off the ground and started bounding around me trying to entice me (I’ll admit, it was one fancy lookin’ stick), and I knew she wasn’t ready to be done. We walked around the lake by my apartment another time (it’s about a mile around the lake) and then headed home.

On our way home, I was in a bit of a music-daze listening to my iPod when, all of the sudden, Sadie and I heard a loud hiss that made us both jump! I freaked out thinking that Sadie stumbled upon a snake or something that reared up and hissed or struck at her. Sadie ran inbeteween my legs and I then realized what the noise was: a ferocious sprinkler. Watch out, they’ll get ya. Needless to say, after the attack of the snake sprinkler, I was wide awake.


Yesterday at the grocery store, I went to pick up a pack of my favorite sweet wheat Alternative Bagels when I saw onion bagels right beside them. I genuinely prefer wheat bread and bagels to white bread, but the oniony flavor intrigued me and I picked up a pack.

This morning I used one of the onion bagels in my breakfast sandwich.

I topped the bagel with a Laughing Cow light Swiss cheese wedge, two egg whites and a slice of Canadian bacon. SO tasty. I adore breakfast sandwiches.

  1. Yum! That bagel sandwich looks delish! I’ll have to try Laughing Cow cheese on my egg sandwiches. Sounds like a tasty addition.

  2. All of your pictures of Sadie are great. She is super photogenic. πŸ™‚

  3. Laughing at the Sadie story!

    Since we are usually not home for Halloween we don’t even buy candy.

  4. Sadie’s a doll!!

    Wish I could get those bagels at the store–I ordered them online and they were delish!!!

    Halloween candy usually doesnt tempt me–prob bc I just dont have any around! haha

  5. I love onion bagels! Another good combination using one is cream cheese, tomato and avocado. YUM!

  6. Sadie is gorgeous!!

    I’m going to my parents this weekend for Halloween- they buy the full size candy bars for trick or treaters, which is kind of a good thing because I could go to town on some fun size ones! Kinda weird that a full size candy bar is my portion control, but at least I know I can only have one! (I could probably eat 1/2 a bag of mini reese cups…)

    • oddly enough that totally sounds like a great tactic… i am definitely more easily swayed by teeny candy bars. i think it’s the “just a bite” mentality that kills me! πŸ™‚

  7. Oh my gosh! that is the cutest doggy picture ever ❀

  8. Your pupster is just the cutest ever! Sorry to read her belly was upset, but at least she got a good long walk out of it πŸ˜‰

  9. My mom tells stories about me carrying my bag of Halloween candy around for weeks as a child, but never eating it. I guess I’ve just never been a big candy lover. I do get a Reese’s craving once in a while but that’s about it.
