Some things are just better together:





Maggie and James 

Sea salt and caramel

Watermelon and basil

Friends and laughter

Golf on TV and napping

Dates and almond butter

The beach and beer

Coffee and cream

Chiles and chocolate

Apples and cinnamon

Movies and wine

Families and boundaries (Heh – just kidding)


Whatever you’ve got going on this weekend, I hope it’s a perfect combination of relaxation and fun.  Happy Friday!

    what about strawberries & cream? or summer & popsicles? my husband loves to nap while “watching” golf… my 2 yr old daughter just saw your pics of Maggie & James & yelled, “DOGGIES!” 🙂

    • Caitlin July 15, 2011, 6:28 pm

      I forgot:

      Babies + Puppies!

      • Christine @ BookishlyB July 15, 2011, 9:18 pm

        Babies and puppies at the same time sound like a lot of work! But I guess if you’re already sleep deprived…

  • beth July 15, 2011, 6:34 pm

    cute lol.

    SOMETIMES…p’nut butta & Chocolate….

    Also, your food you prepare most often looks really good.Thx for sharing, its inspiring. Keep doing the thing that YOU do, thx again!

  • Lauren July 15, 2011, 6:36 pm

    LOL…golf on TV and napping for sure since golf usually puts me right to sleep!

  • Hatty July 15, 2011, 6:39 pm

    like…ron and hermione 😛
    can you guess what i’ve just seen 😀
    happy weekend!

  • Jen July 15, 2011, 6:45 pm

    Awww, puppy cuddles are just the best! Have a great weekend!

  • Amanda July 15, 2011, 6:48 pm

    Awesome pic of the puppies : D …….. how about peanut butter and chocolate, thats a happy place right there!

  • Jen July 15, 2011, 6:54 pm

    Peanut butter and banana, goat cheese and beets, yogurt and granola, hot chocolate and a thunder storm, toast and butta, honey and tea, best friends and secrets, clean sheets and freshly shaven legs! Ah, nothing beats clean sheets and freshly shaven legs. Happy Friday to you too! Your blog always puts me in a good mood. 🙂

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) July 15, 2011, 6:55 pm

    They are so sweet! My cats do that too! I think angel food cake and seven minute icing are a perfect combo too. Just to add my favorite in there too!

  • SarahC July 15, 2011, 7:05 pm

    Awww, sweet post! I hope your weekend is a perfect combination of Fun and Triumphant. 😉

  • Mindy Knows July 15, 2011, 7:49 pm

    “Golf on TV and napping”… Teehee! 😉

  • Nicole (Earth Based Beauty) July 15, 2011, 8:00 pm

    Windows down + Music up!

  • Amy July 15, 2011, 8:05 pm

    Work and play 😉 (Well, sometimes)

    LOVE the families and boundaries!

  • Callie July 15, 2011, 8:16 pm

    Happy weekend! 🙂
    Maggie and James are so cute… your blog makes me wish I had a dog!

  • Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats July 15, 2011, 8:27 pm

    Families and boundaries for sure. You may be jk but I’m not! lol. 😀 Happy weekend Caitlin!

    • Ashley July 16, 2011, 4:09 am


  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga July 15, 2011, 8:31 pm

    Relaxing and fun = I am going to the gay pride parade here in San Diego and it will for sure be both! More emphasis on the fun and relaxing/exciting 🙂

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen July 15, 2011, 8:53 pm

    My combo of the day was mustard & pretzels. yum.

  • Kristy@RunTheLongRoad July 15, 2011, 8:53 pm

    Absolutely adorable!

  • Marissa July 15, 2011, 9:10 pm

    Aww, they’re just too cute!

  • Carrie July 15, 2011, 9:51 pm

    There is some truth to that families and boundaries thing! I think every newly married couple needs to read Boundaries by Cloud & Townsend. It’s a life changer!

  • Baking 'n' Books July 15, 2011, 9:53 pm

    I actually wouldn’t kid about the “families and boundaries” one – very real to me! And honestly I don’t know how you manage your own situation at times! 😉

    Love this list! Watermelon and basil..? Who knew…reminds me I’ve yet to get some melon though! Keep forgetting at the store.

    But Movies and Wine – oh yes. But I would have to add a third. I apologize – but chocolate (or ice cream..or both?) should be in there too…it’s definitely a threesome.

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg July 15, 2011, 10:02 pm

    Dinner + Movie! That is what we did tonight.

  • Ricki July 15, 2011, 10:20 pm

    Aww, your puppies are so cute! Your list reminds me of the new Blake Shelton song “Honeybee.” I would have to add bubble bath + a good book to the list. 🙂

  • Shannon July 15, 2011, 10:28 pm

    Love this post? Watermelon & Basil? Really? Is it worth a try?

    • CaitlinHTP July 16, 2011, 2:22 pm

      Yes! Add feta!

  • katie @ KatieDid July 15, 2011, 10:35 pm

    and open water swims and kicking assss! have a good weekend!

  • Shannen July 15, 2011, 10:43 pm

    milk and cookies, boyfriend and broken household appliance 😉

  • Mary July 15, 2011, 10:43 pm

    What about Pickles and Ice cream?! or …. mmmm… I’ve got nothing haha. Love the pic of maggie and james! Happy Fridayy! I’m thankful for a weekend OFF!

  • emily July 15, 2011, 10:46 pm

    I’d like to add to the list –
    marshmellows and campfires
    pretzels and diet coke

  • yolie @ practising wellness July 16, 2011, 1:22 am

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) July 16, 2011, 2:37 am

  • Hayley @ Oat Couture July 16, 2011, 3:07 am

  • Amy* July 16, 2011, 8:44 am

    Amy and Stephen! (that’s me and my husband!) he’s deployed so I’ll have to fly solo for a while, but I know it will be so sweet when he returns!*

    • Kelly July 16, 2011, 8:52 am

      I just read this and my heart literally goes out to you. I can not even imagine what it must be like for you but I am so so humbled by the sacrafices your husband and you are making for this country.

      • Amy* July 16, 2011, 9:54 am

        Thank you for your support! I can’t tell you how much that helps!*

        • CaitlinHTP July 16, 2011, 2:21 pm

          Aww Amy + Stephen forever!

    • Nicole (Mrs. Muffins) July 17, 2011, 10:54 am

      Aww, hugs! I’m a military wife too so I’ve been there. Homecomings are definitely the best! <3

  • Kelly July 16, 2011, 8:51 am

    Oh my goodness…what a cute picture!!!

  • Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers July 16, 2011, 9:02 am

    I’ve never been good at napping. I think I’ve found the solution – turn on golf first!

  • Miranda @ Working Mom Works Out July 16, 2011, 9:39 am

    Right now I’m having iced coffee + blogs. 🙂

    Enjoy your weekend, too!

  • Ali @ Ali Runs July 16, 2011, 10:03 am

    What a cute pic of Maggie and James! I love the “Golf on tv and napping”–couldn’t be more true!

  • Miranda July 16, 2011, 10:54 am

    Did you get Maggie and James at the same time?

    • CaitlinHTP July 16, 2011, 2:20 pm

      Nope, we got maggie first and james six months later. but when we introduced maggie and james at the pound, it was seriously like love at first site. they were all over each other. i get so mad when people say they are brother and sister because they are lovers 🙂

      • Eliza July 17, 2011, 2:51 am

        Haha.. Loverssss!

  • Amber K July 16, 2011, 11:50 am

    I have to go with another commenter and say strawberries and cream. That’s literally all I can think about now! lol

  • Amber K July 16, 2011, 11:53 am

    I have to agree with another commenter and say strawberries and cream. It’s literally all I can think about now, lol.

    • Amber K July 16, 2011, 11:54 am

      whoops, I really am single-minded today. deja vu!

  • The Healthy Engineer July 16, 2011, 2:12 pm

    Sounds like I reallllly need to try the watermelon and basil combo!!

    Watermelon and salt is heaven though!

  • Jen July 16, 2011, 10:35 pm

    soooo cute!

  • Jessica @ Bake a Little July 18, 2011, 11:20 am

    You have officially got me addicted to Dates and almond butter. I go with Better N Butter, because I am addicted, but still, the combo of nut butter and dates is… to.die.for. Thanks for introducing us!

  • Bay July 18, 2011, 12:32 pm
