Our Wonderful Weekend

Hello, all! How was your weekend? Ours was extremely busy, but so much fun! It was full of friends, family, and delicious food. My heart is so full!

Before I recap the weekend, I want to wish all of those fathers out there a happy Father’s Day…especially my dad in Heaven and my father-in-law. I am so glad my husband and I had amazing examples growing up and I can’t wait to see my husband as a father some day!

My dad and I after my first half marathon (that he trained me for). Ugh I miss him so much.

Now, here’s the weekend recap…


My husband and I met up with some friends for dinner at a wonderful bbq place called Oak Hill BBQ. I have always had the best experience there!

I had chicken legs (from the smoker), smoked cabbage, greens and cornbread.

We all enjoyed our meals and stayed talking so long we didn’t realize that we stayed passed closing…oops. haha!

After dinner, my husband and I watched some TV before bed.


I woke up, had coffee and breakfast, and got everything ready to head out of town for the rest of the weekend.

I had a dr. appointment in the morning, then ran to the store before going to the gym. I did an express gluteus maxout class which was plenty for the day!

After the gym and a quick shower, I got a blowout on my hair since we had a big night planned.

When I got home, the hubs and I packed up the car and headed to Cincinnati (about a 2 hour drive).

We met our friends for dinner before heading to the Great American Ball Park for the Luke Bryan concert.

Dinner was delicious and we had so much fun catching up!

I had a black bean burger, fruit, and creamy farro (which wasn’t out when I took this picture).

We had time to kill after dinner so we walked across the river and sat at another bar.

We walked back when it was time for the concert. It was so much fun!!!! It was also SO hot. Being in the 90 degree heat for 5 hours was rough, but worth it.

The crew enjoying some music!

My college roomie (who also happens to be Brad’s cousin). How lucky am I to marry into one of my best friend’s families?!

The concert went on until after 11 and I drove us back to my mom’s place about a half hour away.

My mom loaded us up on presents and snacks as she always does. She’s the best! I read bit, then crashed hard.


I woke up this morning and went to Starbucks with my mom. We hung out a few hours until we met up with my family to celebrate my nephew’s 14th birthday at a place called Main Event. It has arcade games, bowling, laser tag, food and more. We had a ton of fun celebrating a wonderful young man.

The face you make when you throw up all over your uncle…


After the birthday celebration we had to make a detour to get a part for my car before heading home.

I grabbed Whole Foods for dinner. I loaded up a salad and had a cup of soup.

Now, I am relaxing with my sweet kitties!

Have a great upcoming week, friends!

With love,
