It officially feels like summer! {Weekend Recap}

Whew. What a weekend. I know most people are headed back to work today and I'm a little bummed I'm not. Today was my original start date for my new job, but I know have two more weeks of summer! This is probably a good thing because this weekend wore me out!


I include Thursday because every day is really my weekend right now and Thursday was fun. I spent the day with my best friend because we're really enjoying living in the same town again (even if it's only for two weeks) after 3 years apart. We shopped all around Athens looking for one specific thing and spent way too much time in TJ Maxx planning for our beach house that doesn't exist. Then, I stumbled upon the perfect pillows for the apartment onces Christian moves in ;)

Everyone needs pillows that have a perm. 

I spent the morning being lazy. as I have been the last two weeks. Then I got up and headed to my parents shop where I proceeded to live tweet my experiences there. People are just silly. It doesn't help that it was a full moon. At least I'm pretty sure it was a full moon. Let's just go with it.

Feel free to follow along for more live tweeting of boring situations. 

After a boring day of harassing my parents, mom and I went to see Fast and Furious 6. Yes, just us. My brother is 17 and won't be seen with family and my dad was tired. So we trekked on over, took out a loan and saw this with the rest of the male teenage population in Athens. But, I loved it. I'm not even a fan of the series? It's a series, right? It was equal parts funny and action-y.


Saturday, my best friend's brother, aka my other little brother, graduated from high school. Sadly, I have no pictures of this entire day-long event because A) I'm an awful blogger and B) my best friend took all the pictures and sucks at uploading things to Facebook/sending them. She still has a lot from my graduation I haven't seen. So, we'll be seeing those around July. But, I do have one of my adorable shoes I found on Thursday and of course had to wear! It was a wonderful day filled with reminiscing about our time in high school/college and realizing how happy we are that we left this wonderful (ha) town.

By the time I finally made it home, my parents wanted a late dinner. I had eaten dinner already and so I tagged along and had this:


Sunday the whole family was a sack of lazy bums. We finally got moving and headed up to the lake. We have a place in Anderson, SC on Lake Hartwell. Our boat hasn't been used in almost 3 summers, so we were afraid it was going to need a lot  of work done. Somehow, that wasn't the case. It needed a new battery and an oil change. Well, it also needed a lot of cleaning. But after about an hour or so it was water ready!

After a dusk boat ride, we wanted our favorite seafood for dinner, but sadly, they were closed for the holiday a day early and we had Fudruckers instead. We were also accidentally those assholes who stay in restaurants too long because we forgot it was a Sunday.


All boat, all day. Once I dragged myself out of bed (this seems to be a theme of the last two weeks...oops?), we jumped on the boat and my little brother taught himself to wake board. He was up on the second try! After a few runs, he fell pretty bad and we were back to riding up and down the lake! We took a break and grabbed Cook-Out for lunch and headed back out for an hour or so before headed home.

Like, could we have found a bigger tube? I don't think so. 

This weekend was so necessary for my family and especially my dad. Having us all together, with no Internet or cable, I might add, was wonderful. Yes, we annoy each other sometimes but I love them so much and I'm so happy for this time I have with them.

And thankfully, this week is set to be a little bit busier: headed to Charlotte to check out an apartment, Boone to pack the rest of my stuff, Carowinds with Christian and back to the lake this weekend!

How was your Memorial Day weekend?
