As you may have deduced from my Instagram account (if you’re not following me, you should be!), Wheat and I spent our Saturday morning watching field trials. The bloodline that my family’s French Brittany Spaniels are from has a field trial each year, and it’s so much fun to see all the different dogs and watch them hunt. I thought I’d share (quite) a few pictures with y’all this morning!
The field trials started with the puppy division, which consisted of a single puppy this year: Ivy. Now Wheat and I both have a serious case of puppy French Britt puppy fever! But can you blame us?
Ivy was absolutely precious and was pointing already!
Next up were the old timers. Our dog, Louie, who turns 14 this summer, was the oldest of the entire group.
He did okay, but he is moving awfully slow these days. He had to catch a ride back to the Gator.
Then we watched all the other Britts hunt.
This pretty pup is actually our Bubba’s brother, Pick! The resemblance is crazy to me.
After the field trials were over, lunch was waiting on us.
It was awesome. Wings, smoked onions, sausage, broccoli, baked beans, cole slaw, yeast rolls… I definitely overfilled my plate.
After lunch, most everyone went back out and hunted the rest of the afternoon, but Wheat and I had a birthday party to attend! Wheat’s grandmother turned 87 on Friday, so we met all Wheat’s dad’s family in Tallahassee for a birthday celebration at Z. Bardhi’s Italian Cuisine. It was amazing!
Mary Cate and I split a Caprese salad at first, then she liked it so much she ordered her own!
In her defense, it was really good. :) Then I had a seafood lasagna with goat cheese instead of ricotta. It was divine!
It was also REALLY dark in there!
Sunday I came into possession of a great deal of canning supplies and an old wooden shoe organizing shelf. I put the two together, and I now have a very clean and organized canning cabinet!
It was a complete disaster zone before, so I was really excited to whip it into shape. Now I wish it didn’t have doors because I could stare at this all day long!
That’s basically what I was up to all weekend. What were y’all doing?
