Weekend Recap Continued … Let the Fun Continue

Hey there!! How is your morning going?  When this week began, I kind of thought Friday would never come, but here it is!  Woo! 

I guess I should mention that Sunday our poor Nashville Predators had a sad lost that gave the Penguins the Stanley Cup.  We had a goal reversed (the ref made a really big mistake by blowing the whistle too early) and the Penguins scored in the last 2 minutes of the game to win.  But, even as sad as that loss was, Nashville is still singing the Predators praises!  This city really came together for our hockey team and I think next year will be another great season!  I am in the middle of trying to convince my husband that we need to get season tickets!  (Any help would be appreciated!! ;))

Last weekend Riley played with Otis’ toy the entire time.  He has a few toys that he likes, but he always loves other dogs’ toys.  They are just SO much more fun when they aren’t yours. 😉 


Saturday night my husband got 3 dates for the concert. 😉  My friends, Lissa and Rachael, came along with us.  We had tickets in the suite again, which was so nice.  The food and drinks are great, but the private bathroom is the best part! 🙂 


I took this picture of the venue, then realized sweet Jacob was hugging my dad.  So cute. 


The boys came up to the suite and loved it too. 

We saw a lot of good music on Saturday night too!  One of my favorites was Lady Antebellum.  They were soo good! 


We also saw Thomas Rhett!  He is amazing in concert!  We also saw Brett Young, Chris Young, Maren Morris, and Florida Georgia Line.  If you like country music, you should definitely make a trip to Nashville for the CMA Fest because it is always a fun weekend! 


Love my girlfriends!!  I finally had a great excuse to wear my cowboy boots! 🙂


My mom brought these beauties over from her house.  Aren’t they gorgeous??


Sweet Callie usually prefers me, but I caught her sleeping next to Jon the other morning. We have come a long way. 🙂 


You guys… I have been loving salads for lunch lately.  Usually I am not a fruit on my salad kind of person, but this week I added strawberries and they made my salad soo tasty!  I can eat a salad every day for lunch, but it better have more toppings than lettuce or I will get bored of it quickly.  This week I added: strawberries, raisins, raw corn, beets, almonds, orange peppers and tofu.  Delicious!  


My husband and I are off to Cincinnati/Indianapolis for the weekend.  I will see you guys next week!

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
