Weekend Recap

Hey! Hey! Well, we had such a busy weekend that I couldn’t get this post finished in time, and I had to share my memes yesterday anyway!

Here’s a recap of our very busy, but great summer weekend!

Friday, was our 17th wedding anniversary, and I received the sweetest card and flowers. Travis has the tradition of writing my name in bubble letters. Not sure why, but he’s just done that during all our years together.

Friday evening, we had dinner reservations at Coles 735. We had the yellowtail sashimi for an appetizer, and then I had the salmon for dinner.

After dinner, we headed to Native Café for a drink outside. The weather was gorgeous.

My dinner outfit included a favorite leopard blouse that I was reunited with during my closet clean out! (haha) I wore old jeans from Target, but did wear my new favorite summer sandals. I also used my new(ish) crossbody purse.

Just thought I’d a favorite summer outfit:

We were up early on Saturday to head to Lake Cumberland with friends. Hadley actually went to the lake on Friday afternoon, and we met them down there.

These girls are like sisters to Hayden, so he eventually got over being the only boy! We were out on the boat for a bit, and then went to a cove for the kids to jump off the cliffs, and we all swam a bit.

Then, the kids took turns tubing before we headed in for dinner.

We were about thirty minutes out from the marina when in poured down rain on us. We were all sopping wet by the time we got back to the dock. We were going to have dinner at a restaurant on the lake, but headed back to our friend’s house and had pizza.

Despite the rain, everyone had a great time.

We got home from the lake around 11:00, and had a pretty lazy day at home. By lazy, I mean unpacking all the things, doing laundry, picking up, and getting ready for the week.

Then, it was time for me to get ready for dinner and a concert with friends.

We had an early reservation at Frank and Dino’s. I hadn’t been there yet, and I will be back. The food was so good.

We split a bottle of wine and three different entrees: lobster ravioli, fagottini Sinatra, and gnocchi al pesto. They were all delish.

Then it was time for the New Kids on the Block concert. It was the Mixtape Tour that also featured En Vogue, Salt N Pepa, and Rick Astley.

Just some 80’s kids ready to hang tough!

It was a “Block Party,” so the performers took turns singing throughout the evening.

NKOTB opened up with a few songs, both old and new.

Then, Rick Astley, En Vogue and Salt N Pepa all performed with NKOTB coming out for songs in between each act as well.

En Vogue and Salt N Pepa performed a couple of songs together too.

For the finale, everyone sang before one more NKOTB performance. I loved the format of the show, and we all had a great time singing along.

A few show notes:

  • It was funny to me that I sported my Lululemon belt bag that most definitely would have been called a fanny pack in 1989.
  • Those Salt N Pepa ladies still have the moves!
  • One of the poor En Vogue ladies had to sit for most of their performances because she had on a boot!
  • Donny loved showing us his abs…
  • Once the concert started, the line was longer for the bathroom than the drink line #tellmeyouare40withouttellingmeyouare40
  • As Jordan was singing “I’ll Be Loving You,” a couple behind us got engaged!
  • I do think I’m still a Joey girl, but Jordan is a close 2nd!
  • The concert was worth the $53 ticket price, but I was happy that I didn’t pay more 😉

It was one of the best summer weekends I’ve had in quite some time! I’m still recovering from all the fun.

I shared this meme yesterday, and after three days/nights of fun, I need a slower week!

I hope your week is off to a great start! Thanks so much for reading.

  1. So much stuff here! Your anniversary outfit is on point! I am still sad that I can’t get the purse in that color – I have black and my best friend just borrowed it for her trip to London and Paris. Maybe I will see if it’s been re-stocked. Your meal looked great, too, and Native Cafe looks so cool! I hope you ate more than what was on your plate before the concert! That sounds like so much fun. I sing “Salt n’ Pepa’s here” every time I use salt and pepper in my kitchen. I’m really easily amused with myself. I am having the same catch up day today that you had yesterday. I carried my weekend into Monday before finding out Tom has the ‘vid. So, it’s also kinda imposed on me for today. Have a great day!


  2. Ha! Loved your meme….that was on point 🙂
    I think it is Jordan that has a renovation type show and it was so interesting to learn a little bit more about his life through it. Basically, his first love is restoring these old homes and then he will take off for 2 to 3 days to go do a show and then come back to what he calls his “real“ life. I think he said he only two or three months out of the year or something. Not a bad gig, right?
    Congrats on 17 years! We have number 27 coming up this weekend 🙂
