This weekend Brad and I were a little under the weather so we decided to downgrade our going out activities into some alcohol-free and low-key fun.
Saturday, we got up early to go to the 15th Annual Mighty Dog Walk down at Auditorium Shores. If it hadn’t been cold and semi rainy, I would have enjoyed it more. However, Riley was the happiest (and dirtiest) dog in Austin.
Riley hates pictures and flash photography, thus this unhappy pose.
She immediately jumped in the river and then rolled in the dirt by the hike and bike trail. We raked in a lot of doggie swag for free. People were grabbing free dog treats like it was Black Friday shopping.
Dinner was at The Pizza Bistro off Lake Austin Boulevard, thanks to a Living Social deal. We always jump on the pizza ones, especially when gluten-free pizza is touted.
I ordered the gluten-free crust with half Marguerite/half West Coast. The WC is olives, tomatoes, avocado and I liked it the best. I found the flavors to be bland, Brad said the same thing but we attributed it to our congestion and colds. The crust was kinda spongy (?) and could have used some spices. We are going to have to return in better health for a more definite opinion, but overall it was decent.
We finished the weekend with a round of golf at Butler, which is like a mini golf course for adults. Brad even bought me my first pitching wedge from a resale shop (the only lefty one there). I don’t plan on becoming a serious golfer, mostly because I am highly competitive and get mean when I lose. Sorry baby! 🙂
Right now, some GF cinnamon rolls are in the oven and I am content with baking, blogging and hanging out with Brad while he watches March Madness.
