So this weekend was simple, laid back and filled with so many laughs. I am pretty sure I could relive this past weekend over the next year and be a happy camper.
Friday was low-key and exactly what I needed after a crazy work week. I grabbed dinner at Burger & Company with Lynae and Jen. It was good but I hadn’t eaten all day so anything in that moment would have tasted delicious.
I will say my painting lacking in comparison to some of the other ladies had zero to do with the
two four glasses of wine I had while painting. Who am I am kidding it had everything to do with but boy did we all laugh, drink, eat and laugh some more. Katie even got a little serious at the end and went all Van Gogh on us….see what I did there? Van Gogh…we painted a Van Gogh….get it? I know I am hilarious! Ha
So I figured after an evening of wine what better way to start of a Sunday than hiking? You thought I was going to say Brunch didn’t you? Don’t worry it crossed my mind but hiking was a better/healthier option.
We headed to Crowder Mountain, climbed to the top, took it all in and then left happy with our Sunday afternoon decision. We followed it by grilling out inside, with one of my favorite kitchen items and hanging out with friends.
It was a successful weekend for me and I hope it was for you all too.
This weekend was a mix of crazy weather. I think Mother Nature was having an emotional breakdown on Saturday because it rained ALL. DAY. LONG. Thankfully she got her stuff together on Sunday and provided an unseasonably warm January afternoon; which was perfect for cheering on a friend of mine in his first bike race.
Lynae, Thomas, Haven Pup and I watched and cheered on until after the time trials and then stayed to watch the 40 min lap race (which involved spills, crashes, some broken bike pieces and lots of crazy riders) and afterward we called it a day.
This is Haven Pup or really just Haven. She is a herder by nature and with all the bikes running around she was struggling to keep it together, but man is she a precious one.
We clearly pay attention to signs really well. Although I think since the river was drained the danger was removed.
Here is Jason on one of the uphill turns that
some A LOT of people struggled with!
One fashion comment to make while I am here is that I got this scarf and one other for Christmas from my cousin and his wife. Ummm…I love them. Check out BSprinkled for to get one of these infinity scarves.
So this long blog post is basically to say my priorities might be realigning. Does this mean I don’t want or won’t sometimes buy those shoes or purse? No, I definitely do and will, but I want to live outside the here and now satisfaction and live for the future satisfaction and the lasting changes traveling will hopefully have on me.
So tell me where you want to travel or places you want to revisit?
I know I said I would get back to my Try it First Thursdays but that just didn’t happen this week. I’ve left work post sunset for the last few weeks which makes taking pictures rather difficult to put it lightly. I do promise I have some fun plans this weekend and will return to my regular scheduled life next week, I think! For now I leave you with some throw back pictures of some of my favorites and why I love them so.
Met this girl when I moved to Young Harris in the sixth grade. Little did I know that a few years later in the ninth grade she would become a good friend and now my best. We have been through a lot and now laugh at it all. She is a constant and I am happy to have her in my life.
