This past weekend I was out of town. Hence the Lack of blogging and running that occurred. However, lots of drinking, music, shopping, eating, helping my mom, & best friend time DID happen!
The Hubs had 2 shows this weekend in the Jackson area one on Friday night at the Irish Frog in Clinton and the other at Burgers & Blues in Ridgland on Sunday afternoon. Since I am from the Jackson area my family and friends are wonderful and love to come hang out with us at these shows. Here's a little recap from the Friday Night show:
PS. The Irish Frog & The Froghead Grill are NOT in the same location. We realized this after I almost bet money against my bestie Haley. Thank GOD she wouldn't bet me because I would have so lost.
Sporting the *NEW* Chad Knight T-shirts!
We are in love with each other.
Seriously, if we didn't like men...well we'd be in a domestic partnership.
Notice I don't have any pictures of the hubs playing from this night. Whoops. I did however score a Video that will be on YouTube soon. Check out his other videos here: WATCH CHAD KNIGHT
After the show we went to my moms to stay for the night and the next morning we had to get up and help her with a garage sale. Let me give you a little background on this: My mother recently moved in with my gran because she is a HOARDER. Seriously, A&E missed out on this jewel of a woman. She is fantastic but she loves to buy things. Absolute JUNK actually. Her house is clean but rooms are filled with things and we agree that she hasn't thrown anything away since the 1970's. (I'm not joking) So, my mom moved in to help her get rid of things and get her house in order like it should be. Gran can't be there during this transformation because she can't let these things go. She would sit there and say, "I can use that don't get rid of it" and "It makes me happy I want to keep it." HOARDER ALERT. My mom has been working her tail off on this and it was time for me to come help so, Saturday morning we got up at 5am to set up for the garage sale. It went really well and we sold a lot (of junk) I seriously can't believe the things that people will buy. We made a lot of progress with the house and I'm going to go back up this weekend to help her with another BIG garage sale. (I wasn't kidding when I say her house is FULL of stuff. We could probably have 10 garage sales and still not get rid of all of it.)
Saturday afternoon consisted of shopping (looking for new running shoes!) and movies and dinner with Haley & Josh. Lets come up with a couple name for them! How about: Hosh. hahaha Chad and Josh have this man love thing going on and Haley and I love it. It's been the first time she hasn't dated a total dumb ass and we all love each other and getting to hang out which makes things way more fun.
We watched this:
Which was super fantastic
Sunday we woke up early again to try and continue the garage sale but people don't go on Sundays. So, another 5am morning and then a glorious nap that afternoon. Naps are a wonderful thing.
After the nap we woke up to go shopping and I decided on my new running shoes! I took some photos today for you guys:
Bam! In yo face!
I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews but they felt so good on I decided to go ahead and get them. I took them for a test run today and 2.10 miles later I am VERY happy with my choice. It's like running on air. Now, I just need to get the Nike Chip for my I-touch and I'll be cool. (FINALLY)
Then it was time for Chad's show at Burgers & Blues
My moma & I (Twins I tell ya)
I swear we have more clothes we were just rockin the new T's ON SALE NOW!
Hubby hubs hubs.
Rockin the Reggae colors with Hosh
Yup, that's what love looks like & Beer out of a mason jar. Classy.
More awesome friends that came to support!
It was a pretty fantastic weekend but I am dead tired; However, I have decided I have the best friend in the world and an amazing hubs how freaking lucky am I!
