Good morning and happy Monday to you!
I’m still relishing in how nice the weather was yesterday!
Here’s a recap of our weekend.
On Friday night, we had plans to go to the “redo” Joe Nichols concert at The Hat in Aggieville. We went and saw Joe a month ago, but he was so drunk that he could hardly sing or even stand upright, so he came back and did a free concert.
Unfortunately, Emily got the flu on Friday morning so it was just Jessica, Travis, and I, but we still had a great time!
We met up in Aggieville at the new Mexican restaurant, Gordo’s. It was pretty standard Mexican food, but it hit the spot. I used to eat Mexican food all the time with my friends, but it’s been awhile lately since I’ve been.
After eating and talking awhile, we made our way over to The Hat. Those who had attended the first concert were guaranteed early entree to get a good spot, and luckily, we had no issues getting in (even though Zach and Emily had bought the first round of tickets and weren’t there). The security people didn’t even question it. Easy!
We got in with plenty of time to grab drinks and get a good spot up close before the opener began.
I had a flashback to college moment when I ordered a vodka sprite, and they used Barton’s vodka. Bleh. Only the good stuff, right?! I don’t know if you can get cheaper vodka than Barton’s.
I’m not usually a huge concert fan, but Joe Nichols killed it this time around.
He more than redeemed himself, and we had a blast singing along to his songs.
I love his music, and he has a new song out called “Never Gets Old,” which I’m now obsessed with. Ironically the song itself never gets old, and I think I played it on repeat probably ten times throughout the weekend. Go listen! It’s a feel-good song. I told Travis that I want it played at our fifty-year anniversary party- ha!
The concert ended around midnight (Joe lasted a little longer this time than at the last concert. 😉 ) I joked with Jessica that it was weird to actually see his eyes open this time, since last time he had them closed (or barely open) the whole time when he was struggling.
The next morning, I was feeling lazy, and did some laundry, more present wrapping, and lounging. I love days where nothing is on the agenda.
I finally got my act in gear late afternoon, and I convinced Travis to come keep me company while I reorganized our basement closet and purged some junk we’ve been holding onto.
While I was organizing (listening to Joe Nichols the whole time, I might add), I came across a bunch of letters that I’d written to Travis when we were dating in high school.
Of course, I had to read them all, and it was the best trip down memory lane. Travis, on the other hand, didn’t see why I needed to read each one, as I halted productivity to do so. 😉
I made a yummy new Red Thai Chicken dish for dinner, and I finally made the switch over to flannel sheets on our bed (pure heaven!). Then, I got the laundry finished, and we watched a couple more episodes of Mind Hunter. Gosh that show is disturbing, but it’s so interesting too!
On Sunday, I got the baking bug and spent awhile in the kitchen making cookies, a new baked oatmeal recipe, and preparing our dinner to go in the slow cooker.
This new peanut butter banana baked oatmeal was a hit, and I can’t wait to have it for breakfasts this week. On a sidenote, does anyone else have to taste test everything they make too? I couldn’t wait until the next morning to sample this one. 🙂
Meanwhile, Travis completely cleaned the inside of my car, and it feels like it’s brand new again!
We stopped mid afternoon to get outside (okay, for me to get outside) and we took a walk on our favorite country road. The road is only about two miles from our house, but it feels so nice to get out in the country and breathe. Someday, we will live in the country again. 🙂
The rest of the day was spent blogging, cleaning a little, and getting ready for the week. It’s the last full week of school before Christmas Break, and I want to rejoice!!
Have a wonderful day!
