Dogfish and Dog birthdaysPosted: December 2, 2011
Last night Greg and I enjoyed a nice meal out at Dogfish Brewery.
Clearly, we go there for the beer, but the food isn’t bad either. And neither was the company- we were joined by the lovely Ashley and her fiancee Neal!
Ashley is one of my blog-buddies, but we had never met in person until last night. I must say though- I feel like we’re old friends! Ashley suggested meeting up for dinner a while ago when her and Neal were looking at possible reception venues in Montgomery County. It didn’t end up working out then, but we decided to make plans for a future date (which was last night).
We started dinner with a little hummus…
After a few attempts to get a photo in horrible fluorescent lighting…
I gave up and used the flash (ick!) on my camera.
What a FUN double date! I think that we all could have easily stayed out much later and wouldn’t have run out of things to talk about, but time flew, and that alarm goes off super early in the morning. I am looking forward to hanging out with Ashley and Neal again soon! (And good luck to you two in the 15k tomorrow!!)
So today marks a very important day in history: my pups are two years old!!
They were obviously very excited when I told them it was their birthday this morning:
It’s hard to believe they’re already two (we got them at 8 weeks old)! I can’t believe they were ever this little… sigh (bear with me as I take a photo trip down memory lane…)
Last year we presented them with a doggie birthday cake, and plan to do the same tonight. Check out this cute little cake!
And check out the ingredients, a human could eat this.
They THOROUGHLY enjoyed their cake last year
But I’m not going to fork over $16 for a cake this year; I’m attempting to make my own! I’m going to use chickpea flour though, since the boys eat a grain-free diet (and I think the whole wheat flour upset their stomachs). Not quite sure how it will turn out, but I’m sure they’ll enjoy it no matter what.
I am beyond happy that it’s the weekend. We are planning to get all of our Christmas decorations put up over the next two days, including getting our tree!
Have a great Friday!
Do you have any blogger-turned-real-life friends? and Do you celebrate your pet’s birthday?
