Happy Monday, and hello July! I hope you had a terrific weekend. My weekend was overall pretty great, with an exceptionally fun Friday, a very mellow Saturday, a busy Sunday and a relaxing Sunday evening.
Friday morning began with a farewell to Mike as he left for vacation to New Jersey. I was bumming that I couldn’t go, but it’ll be nice for him to have some quality time with his parents. I am missing out on seeing his parents’ puppy though!
Friday night was the 3rd Country Megaticket show! I didn’t talk much about the 2nd one (Kenny Chesney) because I got a migraine that night & we left early. However, the Rascal Flatts show made up for it by far. It was the best one yet (no rain, no migraine, booyah!). B & I + sunshine + Angry Orchard, good music, and deep conversation made for a great start to the weekend.
This concert brought back memories of listening to Rascal Flatts during their “Feels Like Today” heyday… way before I would ever even consider buying something like a Country Mega Ticket. It’s funny how things change, and how some things don’t. I also learned that Cassadee Pope, the former lead singer of a pop-punk band that I knew about, won The Voice and suddenly became a country singer. It was interesting & unexpected – and I didn’t hate it! The Band Perry put on an incredible show… I was impressed by what true performers & entertainers they are.
Saturday was supposed to be a day for being productive, but I got yet another migraine so my day was spent in and out of sleep & when I was awake, I was taking it easy, watching TV & lounging on the couch, and cuddling with this little rascal:
I also finally put my Christmas present to use on Saturday (my Kindle Paperwhite) by starting to read Mindy Kaling’s book “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)” & so far I am really liking it. She has a quirky style/sense of humor and it’s definitely a fun, light read. I’m excited to start reading more – I’m making that a priority. I also want to start reading more marketing-related books, as well. Gotta stay knowledgable!
Sunday was spent shopping with my mom. I picked up some great new wardrobe pieces that I will hopefully be using in future outfit posts… but for now I’ll just show you a couple of accessories that I got:
After being exhausted from all of that shopping, we decided to skip the Crocker Park fireworks in lieu of food & relaxation after a long day. Mom & I got dinner at Two Bucks in Middleburg Heights (which Mike & I had been meaning to try but never got around to it). It turned out to be a really awesome place – great food, great atmosphere, and so affordable! We both got 3 mix-and-match sliders – I chose the grilled cheese (with tomato and bacon), the cheesesteak, and the buffalo chicken. Mom got the grilled cheese & cheesesteak as well, but her 3rd choice was a Black & Bleu burger. We also shared fries with garlic & sage seasoning, and they were incredible! I also really enjoyed each of the sliders, except for the buffalo chicken one. It was SUPER spicy, even though it was supposed to be mild. I don’t know if it’s just the fact that my ability to handle spicy foods has evaporated or what, but I couldn’t eat it. However, the grilled cheese and the cheesesteak were fabulous. I’d definitely recommend any of the local Two Bucks for a quick & cheap bite to eat, or just a fun place to grab a drink!
Now it’s back to the grind, but since Mike’s gone on vacation all week, my routine will be different. I have many things I need to catch up on. Also, July is about to be a seriously busy month – but I’m not complaining! Have a great week 🙂
