It's Tuesday but I'm doing my Weekend Recap anyway!

Yes, I know yesterday was "technically" the day I'm supposed to do a weekend recap. But I was busy. Between work and Delta Zeta, the life is slowly but surely being sucked out of me. Sept. 16th (the day after formal recruitment) needs to come quickly!

This past weekend was supposed to be a slow one. But apparently I can't do anything slowly so somehow I managed to fill it to the brim.

Between a Friday night concert in Clear Lake, a Saturday trip to Stephen F. Austin State Univ., and Clark's doggie school on Sunday, I feel like I traveled a lot.

The weekend in pictures-
Jason Boland and some country dancing.
Fabulous Friday with my friend Jen. 
Saturday trip SFA to help the DZ chapter there prepare for rush.
The inside of their house. 
It was interesting. And that is all I can say about it. 

And Clark got a Halloween outfit. 
It's fitting considering his name....

A Day in the Country

The weekend after July 4th, I ventured out to the burbs (The Woodlands to be exact) to spend "A Day in the Country." One of the local radio stations sponsors this country music fest each year and my friend Jen and I decided to go see what it was all about this year. There were 6 bands that played- Eli Young Band, Chris Janson, Easton Corbin, Brett Eldredge, Joe Nichols, Aaron Lewis, and Charlie Worsham. All the bands were great but my fav was The Eli Young Band. I've become a fan of country over the last year and I really love Texas country. So glad my friend Jen is always game to go see a band!

I can now die a happy woman

So way back at the end of June, I experience probably one of the best nights of my life so far. I FINALLY got to see my all-time favorite childhood band- New Kids on the Block. I went with 7 of my closest friends and we danced and sang our hearts out all night. While the critic's reviews were mixed, I thought they were fabulous. And to top things off, we bought the cheap, nose bleed seats but got upgraded to the 2nd row. We were soooo close. It was AMAZING!

But I'll let the pictures do the talking. WARNING- Be prepared for a picture overload.

The top one is the cheap seat. 
The bottom one is our upgraded seat.
NOTE: ROW 2!!!!

The concert started with Boys II Men. 
We missed most of their songs though because dinner took forever. 

And then came 98 Degress.
I have to say that while their hotness is still there, 
I was disappointed in the act. It wasn't all the great. 

 Nick Lachey is still nice to look at though. 

 And finally came the big act. 
They played for 1 1/2 hours. 

 And then this happened. 
I could have touched him.
But I didn't want to seem like one of those crazy girls.

And the obligatory group shot.

Is it really almost the middle of August?

Today is the 12th day of August. I'm not really sure where the first 11 days went but they flew by. I guess when you're crazy busy, life just slips by. This weekend was another one for the books. Not too crazy but just the right amount of fun. Until I started feeling sick on Sunday. That was no bueno.

So without further delay, my weekend recap:

*Had a super slow day at work and left 15 mins early.
*Went with my friend Jen to go see The Josh Abbott Band at Mo's Place in Katy (and man that was a long drive but so worth it). We ran into Meredith, lovely lady who we went to law school with. Therefore we had to take the obligatory law school reunion pic.

*Got a much needed mani/pedi (and I do realize that in my last post I was going to try to avoid those during August but it was an emergency)
*We with my new/old roomie Kourtney to pick up the tile for my new bedroom. It's ceramic tile that looks like wood. Perfect for Clark and his dirty feet.
*Took Clark to his first trip to Boneyard Drinkery aka the dog bar. Genius place y'all! It's a dog park that serves alcohol. Need I say more.
*Went out with my friend Becca and we tried this place called The Good Life. They have fancy jello-o shots and yummy cocktails. I had two different ones. I like the one with the blackberries in it better. It has a capri sun in the drink. My overall review was that they were good but they look much better than they actually taste. We then went to a place called 3rd Floor. It was the most interesting place with a weird mix of people. We basically spent the evening critiquing people for their crazy outfits. This is also perhaps why we are both still single :)

*Took Clark to his second day of doggie school. He's getting a little better. I think.
*Celebrated my brother's 30th birthday with a BBQ full of Texas potatoes, pulled pork, fruit salad. I actually spent most of the afternoon upstairs resting because I wasn't feeling well but the food and cake were still yummy!

This week is a short week for me because I have Delta Zeta work week on Thursday-Sunday. I will be spending my next weekend at a camp working with 45 women getting ready for recruitment. It's going to be exhausting but fun!
