Weekend Recap 6.10.17 The Best Weekend Ever!! Visitors, Canoeing, and CMA Fest!

Hi friends!! I hope you guys had an amazing weekend and are having a great week so far!  This past weekend was one of the best ones I have had in a while.  It was full of family, friends and FUN!! My kind of weekend.  Although, Monday and Tuesday at work were a little rough, but thankfully I am feeling like my normal self again after some much needed sleep. 🙂 

Friday morning my sister and her boyfriend flew in from Dallas (along with Otis, their doggie).  After I got off work in the late afternoon, I met up with them at our house for some drinks and appetizers and a few games of ping pong.  Did I mention my husband bought a ping pong table for our bonus room?  He literally came home with it before we even had a couch in our living room.  😉 But I will say, it has been a fun thing to have when we have guests over.  

Friday night, my sister, her boyfriend, my husband and I headed downtown to the CMA Fest!  My sister’s boyfriend surprised her with tickets and my husband’s boss took his whole office and their spouses.  We spent some time in the suite with my husband’s coworkers and then headed down to the lower level to hang out with my sister and her boyfriend.  The best thing about CMA Fest is that you get to hear a bunch of different people/bands perform.  Friday night we saw Kelsea Ballerini, Rascal Flatts, Sam Hunt (my sister and I agreed he was our fav!!), Trace Adkins, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and more!

We grew up going to concerts with my dad and it will always be one of my favorite past times.   


Saturday morning we were up bright and early for a fun-filled day ahead.  My sister, her bf, and I headed out for a quick run before beginning the day.  I LOVE having someone to run with. 

A few hours later, we were canoeing down the river for my sister’s birthday! Her actual birthday was on Saturday so it was perfect timing to have a fun adventure to celebrate!  She and her boyfriend were in town for a wedding Saturday night so we had to pack in as much fun as possible before then!


The birthday girl and her special hat (my friend Rachael brought it for her to wear ;))!  Yes, we brought all the dogs… 4 in all.  They loved it… kinda. 😉


Riley sitting in Mimi’s lap… his favorite place to be.  



We had such a great time!  The weather was perfect!  We stopped along the way to eat brunch (we brought a cake!) and drink some mimosas!  

I will wrap up this post here and finish the rest tomorrow!  Have a great day friends!! xoxoxo
