My Life Is One Big Country Song Right Now

Let's see if I remember how to do this whole "write a post" thing. Many thanks to my father for sending a text this morning of "you no blog no more?" to remind me I should probably get back at it. For the record, he does not work at a Chinese restaurant so I'm not sure why his text came through in this fashion, but hey to each it's own. 

Where do I begin? We will start with the weekend because it seems fitting to do a weekend recap on Tuesday night? Better late than never (says every woman who doesn't want to get pregnant). 

It was a good one indeed. Complete with friends, cards, beer, and concerts. In all seriousness I have never played cards so many times in 24 hours than I did this weekend. 
oh hi. just playing euchre while waiting for the concert to start.  

I'm not really kidding around when I say I am 27 going on 82. I mean for real one of the best parts of my weekends was trying out the sleep number beds. It was definitely one of those dreams coming true type of moments. 

Anyhow, back to cards. Cards is great in the fact that you don't really have to exude any physical energy. It is also great for me because it means I don't have to exude any mental energy either. Turns out I am that girl who will call trump in Euchre and then ask what trump is when it's my turn to lay a card. Devils in the details ladies. If my memory serves me correctly I never actually "won" any of the games however I perfected my singing skills to a tee, so that's gotta be worth something. 

Speaking of singing, that's the only other thing going on in my life lately. I feel like I am a walking boom box. Really I just wanted to say boom box, but music has been radiating into my ears 24/7. Florida Georgia Line (two nights in a row), Thompson Square, and Mmmmmmm Luke Bryan. Did you know his name is seriously Mmmmmmm Luke Bryan? Try saying his name without the Mmmmmmm first. See, you can't. 

Tomorrow night is good ole Hunter Hayes, you know..that one boy who I swear will remain 12 forever. I think I'm most excited about the concert just because it means I get to wear a dress on a Wednesday evening. It's the little things people. 

Anyhow, it's been a fun busy fun past couple of days. Let's end this sucker with a handful of (okay like thirty) photos. Enjoy. 

my better little Nashville half and her boyfriend, Bill Rancic look-a-like. 
more on this contraption later..for now, just know it was the best birthday present ever.
 fair food. ummmm yes. 
 speaking of the fair, they don't sell alcohol there. #problemsolved 

And this now takes care of my "you no blog no more?" problem.

Best thing that has happened to you in the past three days? Ready, set, go. 
I love me some happy.

  11. Best thing that happened to me in the past 3 days? My baby started giving "kisses" and its awesome. Worst thing that happened - me having to admit that I don't know ANY of the musicians you saw! Must be geographical - I guess they aren't big here In the north east (thank god I didn't have to say north west or I might have to pay Kim and Kanye money..)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yay! I'm so glad you are back! I started stalking, I mean visiting your blog a couple of months ago and I love it. You are funny and smart and you're from Indiana! I'm a southern Indiana girl myself. I can relate to your posts and I think your fashion sense is fantastic. I'm like one of those girls in the high school clique copying your outfits. Lol. That made me sound very stalkerish and scary. I assure you I am just super cool. Love the pics! I am living vicariously through you right now as I'm stuck working. Best thing about my past weekend was seeing my niece who is now three months old play with my four month old. I got lots of baby kisses. Glad to see you again. Keep the posts coming.

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
