music in the park

17 Jul

For the first time this summer Corey and I made it to Music in the Park. We went just about every Monday last year and it was so great to go again. We drank wine out of McDonald’s cups (because we’re classy like that), we sat close to each other on the blanket, laughed, moved closer to the stage, drank more wine, and watched some random guy do some pretty freaking awesome dance moves. 

Erin and I went to Music in the Park last Wednesday… I didn’t take any pictures, but she did 🙂

over the weekend

12 Mar

FIRST

I know I wasn’t the only person that forgot about Daylight Savings Time… but MAN, it sure did throw me off. Saturday night after Corey and I got back to his apartment I told him that I thought it was strange that my phone said it was 3:15AM when it was obviously 2:15AM.

Obviously.

ANYWAY

I hope y’all had a great weekend! I know I did.

Well, I guess I should start off by confessing that I didn’t go to that HARDCORE ABS class on Friday. I was trying to talk myself out of it all day and knew it was a sign I shouldn’t go when I told my sister about it and she asked me, “Are you sure you want to do that the day before a concert/the weekend?” That question alone sealed the deal – I was going to get hardcore abs someday, but it wasn’t going to be Friday.

After work I went home, made lunch, painted my nails (a pretty, bright color!), finally hung up my IKEA frames, and watched Some Like it Hot (and had NO shame while laughing out loud by myself).

Saturday I slept in, ran a few errands and then went to hang out with my friend Julia Nunes, you know, the one I told you about here. AND to my utter happiness she did bust out some Sunshine and Buttercup! Woot woot!

This guy, Mark Rose, opened for Julia and sounded just lovely. Bonus! He’s from Chicago!

This guy, Mike, is friends with my friend Julia. Cool, huh? It’s like we’re BFFs by association. No? [There was a group of  college freshman girls standing next to us and they announced about a gazillion times how DREAMY they thought he was… too funny]

JULIA!

YOU GUYS! So, truth be told, I was in a pretty bugged mood when Corey picked me up so we decided we would go out for margaritas after the JN show, but noticed that they had margaritas at the venue so we each got one and LET ME TELL YOU… Best non-strawberry margarita I’ve ever had. Well done, Subterranean, well done. ::high five::

Sunday I went with Corey to band practice. He says I looked bored, but I definitely wasn’t. I’m going to take a minute to be the cheesy girlfriend, but seriously, I love watching this guy play music.

Later that night I cuddled up on the couch with this guy on my right…

…and this guy on my left 🙂

So sad that the weekend is over and we lost an hour of sleep, but SO happy from all the weekend awesomeness 🙂

it’s FRIDAYYYY!!

9 Mar

It’s finally HERE!! Our beloved Friday.

The office I worked in during college was a Friday lovin‘ crowd and we’d play all the Friday related songs we could think of. I’m not going to tell you what mine is because you might judge me. (But if you really want to know you can find out here… and if you do you are not allowed to judge. Deal?)

Anywho…

I don’t have a TON planned this weekend, but I am going to a concert Saturday night that I am THRILLED about!!

I’m going to see Julia Nunes for the 3rd time in just over 2 years… wahoooo! Here’s to hoping she’ll bust out some Buttercup and Sunshine.

Or maybe we could get a little Lovin’ from her? (Bahh!! I was totally there! I was actually standing next to Todd, who was taking the video).

Now, I suppose me going to a concert Saturday night all depends on how tonight goes first. Staying in line with trying to make it to 2 workout classes per week I am going to an abs class tonight, but this isn’t just any abs class… it’s called… HARDCORE ABS. For real. It’s in all caps on their website too. I’m scared. And might be scarred after.

So assuming I can still physically move tomorrow, I’ll be hanging out with Julia, Corey, and Todd. Woooooo!

Happy Friday!! xoxo
