Father's Day Weekend

This weekend my dad finally decided to grace us with his presence. Even though he lives just a little over two hours away, we usually only see him once every couple of months. So I was so very happy that he decided to come stay for Father's Day.

Saturday we had a big Armenian feast at the house. Arsen's parents came over and prepared everything, and it was amazing as always. We invited a few friends over to join us and everyone was thoroughly impressed with the food.

We had a great time with a whole lot of drinks, food and laughter. After probably two hours of sitting and eating and toast after toast after toast, the guys decided a game of poker was in order. I'm not much of a game player, and I'm definitely not much of a gambler, so I left them to it.

My friend Amelia and I decided an evening of watching HGTV's House Hunters (and catching up on blogs for me) sounded much more exciting. This is what my evening looked like:

Addie has been pretty mopey for the last couple of days...I think it's because she hasn't been getting 100% of my attention since I've been cleaning house and hosting people. She wouldn't even sit on the couch beside me for most of the night. So this is what her evening looked like:

All in all it was a fun evening, and I'm glad my dad was here to share it. Sunday morning we got up and had lunch at Babe's here in Frisco. It was our first time there, and ohmygoodness was it good. They serve everything family style (mashed potatoes, cream gravy, green beans, corn) and then you choose a meat. I had chicken fried steak, which is pretty much my favorite meal in the world, and it did not disappoint. So yummy!

After lunch dad headed back home, and I think Addie and I were both a bit sad. We walked him out to his truck, and as he drove off Addie watched him until he turned the corner. Then she just stood there staring straight ahead for awhile. Then she slowly lowered herself onto the sidewalk and put her face on her front paws with the saddest look on her face. Break my heart why don't ya!

I'm so glad my dad came to visit, and wish we could see each other more. Maybe when I have those grand-babies he's been wanting he'll start coming around more ;)


  1. Awww seeing a sad pup breaks my heart, sometimes my family and I choose not to go out for dinner because leaving our pup home alone is too hard! Lol crazy right? Looks like you had a great weekend!


    1. I change my plans waaaay too frequently because I feel bad for neglecting her. It drives Arsen crazy! Glad I'm not alone :)
