Weekend Recap 8.9.16 Dixie Chicks concert, boat day, and girls night!

Hi guys!  I have missed you!  There has been quite a lot of stuff going on in my life recently, hence the lack of posting.  I am hoping things will be back to normal soon so I can get back to my regular blogging routine.  How are you guys doing?  Did you have a nice weekend?

I have a lot to catch you up on (like our last trip to the lake with friends and a family game night), but I thought I would catch you up on this past weekend first.  So let’s get right to it! 

I don’t know about ya’ll but I used to be the biggest fan of the Dixie Chicks back in the day.  When I heard they were going on a reunion tour, I had to get tickets.  Unfortunately, tickets in our area (probably everywhere) sold out so fast then immediately skyrocketed in price on Stubhub and Craigs List.  I had no idea it would be so popular!!  The Dixie Chicks were in town on Friday evening so my husband and I kept an eye out for some decently priced seats all week.  With no luck, we decided to head to the concert and try to buy tickets outside (the cheapest seat online 2 hours before the concert was around $400… um I like the Dixie Chicks, but not that much).  We decided to buy two lawn seats and I am SO glad we did!  


The concert was amazing!  They did play more new songs than I would have liked, but I got to hear most of my old favorites too.  I uploaded a couple short clips of my favorite songs from the concert to my youtube channel if you want to check them out! 

Cowboy Take Me Away

Wide Open Spaces 

And ofcourse I had to wear my new cowboy boots for the occasion.  🙂 


Saturday started off with a Body Pump class while my husband played tennis.  We decided to go on a short boat ride in the early afternoon since it was such a beautiful day outside! 


We explored a new-to-us part of the lake and saw the most beautiful homes.  One day…. 😉


And then we discovered this huge piece of land with lots of horses roaming around!


We cruised down the way a little bit and saw a spot where the horses could get in the water/drink the water.  One horse appeared.. then two, then three!  It was really so neat to see.  

I did a lot of this before we headed back home.  Lake life is the good life! 🙂 


After our boat ride, my husband met up with his friends and I met up with my sister and her friends for a pool party.  We stayed for a bit then went to my sister’s house to get ready for dinner.  


We went to dinner with about 11 girls at Mi Cocina and waited in the bar area before our table was ready.  


My sistaaa and me!


My sister and her sweet friends!


After a long wait, we were finally seated with complementary guacamole and queso… it was worth the wait!


I got a delicious salad with salmon and my sis got the fish tacos!  Both were incredible!!

After dinner we went to Louie Louie’s Piano Bar for some great entertainment.  It was so fun! 


Most of Sunday looked like this… 


With little butterball running around like crazy the whole day.  He is such a hoot!


I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  Our travel schedule is slowing down quite a bit this month, which I am more than okay with… We do have quite a few visitors coming this month, which should be fun!  Have a great day yall! 


  1. What did you do this weekend?
  2. Any fun August plans coming up?
  3. Do you straighten or curl your hair more often?
