Since I missed Friday Five again, I figured I’d do a weekend recap. Friday was insane and I just didn’t have any time to post and I was going to post yesterday but I ended up on the couch all day from exhaustion and just a general bleh feeling. I swear I need another weekend to recover from my weekend.
Anyway. Let’s get to it. I’m going to do a separate post about the shower because I really liked how it turned out so that should be up in a couple of days.
I took the afternoon off from work Friday to run some last minute errands for my friend Cha’s baby shower and to get some cleaning/decorating done. Side note: Publix has their pumpkins out now and it took all the strength I had not to buy a cart full to start decorating our porch. This weekend all bets are off though since Friday is the first official day of fall. I don’t care if it’s still 90 degrees next week, pumpkins and mums are definitely happening.
Friday night Kyle and I went to the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill concert with my friend Jackie. Country is one of my favorite genres and when I saw that Tim and Faith were coming to our town, I pretty much immediately bought tickets. We were in the upper bowl but we looked down directly onto the stage and we sat above the stairs so nobody was in front of us which made for a killer view for the most part. The concert was good overall but I thought the Eric Church concert we went to a couple of months ago was better. We only stayed for about half, most of which was Faith Hill but I was tired and didn’t want to be out too late since I was planning on getting up early the next morning.
Saturday morning I was up bright and early to drop the dogs off at camp and finish cleaning/decorating for the shower. Kyle was a big help with all of the cleaning and food prep and he was nice enough to run out to pick up a couple of things before babysitting my BFF’s toddler during the shower.
The shower went on until around 2 and then our super amazing friends helped us clean up after which was a big help. After everyone left we loaded up the car and headed on to our last event of the weekend.
Kyle’s company put together this overnight camping trip at Oskar Blue’s REEB Ranch in Hendersonville which had some amazing views and is only a little over an hour from our house. It wasn’t the most fun I’ve ever had on a camping trip but it came after a very long, busy week and I was exhausted. It was the first time I was meeting any of his co-workers and it was just a lot to take in all at once so I was pretty overwhelmed. Sleeping was kind of impossible because I couldn’t get comfortable and I seriously miss the days where I could sleep on my stomach and I was just grouchy. Everyone was really nice and had it been the only thing we did that weekend I probably would have felt completely different about it but I really just wanted to be home in my bed at that point.
I had planned on trying to be at least semi-productive when we got home on Sunday but I was insanely tired and I ended up getting sick on the drive back down to the house so I spent the rest of the day on the sofa until it was time to pick up the dogs and I think I ended up going to be around 8 that night.
So that was our insane weekend and I don’t plan on being that busy any time soon. It really doesn’t sound like that much when I write it here but I promise you it was non-stop. Our plan this weekend is to decorate for fall, finish up the painting in our bedroom, and start ripping up carpet in the hallway to prep for new floors so hopefully soon I’ll have an actual master bedroom update for you.
