This weekend was so much fun, but this old gal is feeling it this morning. I feel like I just tried to be in college again, and for the most part I'm alright. But it never used to be this hard to get going afterwards, haha.
Let me recap the weekend for you. I know you care, right?
Friday was a normal day with nothing to talk about after work. I ended my day with laying in bed and watching "Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids" edition. First of all, let me say this- if any of you heifers act like those girls did I will smack you in your face. Bet. Second of all, this bride was giving them way too much freedom. I may or may not turn into a Bridezilla IF I ever get married. I apologize now for any toes I step on or feelings I hurt.
Neeeeeeext, LOL. Saturday morning I was up bright and early and met Cassie at our usual spot. We headed off to Jackson, TN to do some shopping. She had a list she needed to get and I had my list of left-over birthday items to get.
Oh yeah, Minnie Mouse in the house! See that big Minnie head ballon? I thought I might have a stroke over that stupid thing. Okay, it isn't stupid. It is adorable. But I was in the mood to call it stupid because it was about to stress me out. I have seriously looked all over the place for a balloon for Minnie Mouse parties and no one has had ANYTHING. I mean yes, online has everything you can possibly want, BUT I didn't want to order EVERYTHING. I just am not into online shopping as much as I should be I suppose. I always worry it won't get here on time or something.
Although I did order her dress and her invitations. And yes, I'm stressed about them not making it in time.....
Okay, back on topic here. Cassie and I hit up Trees-N-Trends. I was excited to see this since ours went out here in Corinth a few years ago, but I was disappointed in their selection. Cassie said it usually isn't like that so maybe they are just in a transitition state right now to fall/Christmas stuff? We also hit up Bed, Bath, & Beyond.
Cassie let me use her extra coupon and so I got me a Tervis. I may be the last person on Earth to own one.. But now I do.
.....And I am already in love with it.....
[And yes, I'm chugging down some serious coffee this morning....]
We hit up several more stores and got the list all checked off- both our lists! Then we went to Steak-N-Shake and ate like fat kids. And I can't speak for her, but I enjoyed myself. But note to self, next time get the milkshake to go. Right Cassie? HEHE!
We got home and I went to show Jennifer & Kevin what all I had gotten
and tell them my plans for their daughter's birthday party. They were excited about it even though I'm pretty sure they are confused why I have some of the items I do. But she is worth it. My little angel only turns 1 once and I plan on making it a big deal :) There will PLENTY of pictures of this to come, don't fret. :)
Let's see after all that I went back to my mom's house with her since dad was out of town and we watched some reruns of My Big Gypsy Wedding because she never watched it before. She laughed and loves it as much as I do now. I knew she would. We both love gaudy people :)
Sunday morning was church with mom. [Great service Bro. Randy!] And then we had the family over for lunch. I always enjoy that time so much. These are the things you can't buy in life and being with my family is my #1 fave thing to do.
Then the reason I am so beat down like an old woman today is because at 4:00 Scott and I left Corinth. We made the drive over to Memphis and ate at Huey's. It was my first time trying it and I was impressed. :) Then we just drove around Memphis looking for awhile. We were going to a concert but we were way early so we just killed some time. We checked out Beale to see how many people were there- packed. I love Memphis. I truly do. I just hate that along with all the things to do and beauitful places also comes the not so nice things of the city. But that's life I suppose.
Finally it was almost concert time so we made our way over to Newby's and joined in the crowd. Eli Young Band was the attraction and they were actually standing outside their tour bus taking pictures with people. Sadly, I do not have one myself because I refused to lose my spot in line. It was like a gazillion degrees and I just wanted to NOT be standing in the sunshine and heat anymore haha. But I DID get a look at him up close and he is beautiful. Seriously.
|This is from last night's show!|
And ladies, you all know I love me a country boy. And that place was full of them good-lookin', jean wearing, cowboy boot steppin', beer drinkin', good ole American backwoods boys. MMMMMMMmmmmmm! =)
This is Chris Cavanaugh. He is purty too! ;) He was the opening act and the dude can sing. I actually have one of his songs stuck in my head. Oh, and I held his guitar case for him. Yes, I am awesome. :)
This is Carter's Chord. They were the second act up last night. I wouldn't neccesarily call them a "bar music" type of band, but I WILL be checking them out because it seemed like something I can totally jam to in my car. They were fun spirited girls though and got the crowd rolling good!
Needless to say, I had me a good time and I danced my tail off. Literally I think because I'm sore today and can't feel my tail. haha. I need sleep and I plan on getting it at lunch.
Well that's all for this little lady today. I am going to fix another cup of coffee now........................
