Weekend Happenings

Sunday, September 22, 2013

The first day of fall already? I've had some fall decor up since the beginning of September but finally the temperatures have cooled off and it really has gotten me in the mood for a bonfires and comfy hoodies. I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm kind of excited for 6th grade camp - we are going at the end of October, I'm hoping for perfect, crisp autumn weather.

It's been awhile since I've had a chance to write - it has been pretty busy around here, weekends packed with activities like celebrating birthdays, Cardinal's games, and concerts.

My dad turned 50 two weeks ago. There's nothing my dad loves more than a good fish fry so we cooked up fish and home made potato chips (also, on of my favorite meals).

It has become tradition to post old pictures on FB on a family member's birthday. Doesn't my dad look kinda like Hyde from That 70s Show?

I've always loved that I've got young parents, they were married at 21 and had their 3 girls before 30 - which I can't even begin to fathom these days!  I can remember in elementary school some of my friend's parents turning 50 and I was just dumbfounded because that's was how old my grandma was!

My adorable 2nd cousin, Callie, turned 2 this past week and her mom and dad threw her the most adorable little ice cream party.

What a cutie! I just love being able to hang out and play with her, she is just so sweet and adorable.

This last Friday was the Jason Aldean concert. I was pretty excited to go after hearing how awesome his show was last summer with Luke Bryan. We originally bought lawn tickets but thanks to my awesome mother, we were actually able to seat the 3RD EFFING ROW! It was unbelievable.

It was a hell of a show, one that left my ears ringing and ridiculously amped up after it was over. I really can't believe how close we were...I mean I was so close, Jason Aldean made direct eye contact with me, waved hello in quite possibly the cutest manner ever, and compared our denim shirts! And before you think, "Yeah right, Sara, he wasn't waving at just you." my sister, who was in the pit next to the stage, saw it all happen!

I've been pretty lowkey after such an exciting Friday night. My arthritis has flared up pretty severely so I've just been trying to keep comfortable and rest quite a bit.

How was your weekend? Have you gotten to enjoy any fall-like weather? I see everyone with these pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks and makes me wish I liked coffee but it's just not going to happen.
