Weekend Review 62: Burning It Down

Happy Monday! The last couple of days flew by. Sometimes I think the heat and humidity do strange things. Like put us in a time warp and next thing we know it's back to responsibilities and working for the man.

 As soon as I got home from work on Friday I quickly changed, grabbed my yoga mat and went to Six Degrees for a Barre class. I told ya'll how they had a great offer if you found the studio via ClassPass so I signed up for a month of classes.

I really love the Friday evening barre class. The instructor is awesome, you get a great workout and the class fly's by. I'm excited to try out some new classes, including their reformer class. Have you ever taken a reformer class?

 After class I picked up some dessert to bring over to Mike's. He had some friends coming to town to run the Tough Mudder and Friday was carb-load night! Mike grilled up some chicken and made some spaghetti with herbs he let me plant at his house. There's nothing better smelling then fresh herbs.

We spent some time lounging outside and catching up before the guys wanted to go inside and get ready for their big day. I started seeing a lot of flashes and hearing what I thought was just planes since his house is really close to the airport. I looked at my phone and realized those were not plane lights/engines, but we were in a tornado warning and a big storm was brewing. Just then we lost power and didn't get it back until close to noon the next day.

Saturday morning I woke up extra early to get some items from my apartment so I could watch the guys do the Tough Mudder and just as I pulled away from Mike's house, he called to tell me the run had been cancelled. I couldn't have been more happy about that.

The storm from the night before ruined the course and uprooted several trees around the city. My car was spared from a large branch that landed right next to it. Since we were without power and now had all afternoon open, we conned one of their friends to let us come over and use his pool. We spent a few hours floating around before we had to get ready for the Big Revival Tour!

We arrived a bit late to the concert so we missed Old Dominion, Cole Swindel and most of Brantley Gilbert. As much as I'm not a big fan of Jason Aldean as a person, I really like his music and he was a ton of fun to listen to. Kenny came on after Jason and he's just a little ball of energy.






After the concert we tried going out for a bit but every bar was packed so we called it a night which I think was a good call.

Sunday was the most lazy day I've had in quite some time. As Mike slept, I took advantage and caught up on my RHOC and Kardashians and while I slept, he watched golf.

Later in the evening I went over to my parents to drop off an over due birthday present for my mom and hang out with my little fur baby.


I just love that face!

I hope everyone else had a great weekend as well!
