I had such a great weekend; it was plenty packed, but with all fun things, how can you complain?! I can’t, so that makes today a marvelous day!
Immediately after work on Friday I headed to the Rascal Flatts concert! It was amazing. Rascal Flatts is one of my favorite bands; I could listen to them all the time. In fact, I ran to a playlist of theirs on Saturday because I was so pumped up about them! We tailgated for a bit with taco dip, cake batter dip (made with Greek Yogurt and cool whip.. not actual eggs and oil! haha), and of course, hot dogs! Cassedee Pope (middle row on the left of the collage) opened for them. She won The Voice Season 3, and was amazing. I voted for her every week, so it was fun seeing her! The Band Perry also opened, and they were so fun. I am not sure how she 1) doesn’t fall in her heels, and 2) doesn’t get tired. That girl was nonstop moving and running places! Rascal definitely stole the show. They don’t really have any new music, so they played a lot of great ones from over the years!
I went for a run in the morning, and spent the rest of the morning/early afternoon making Beer Cheese and Homemade Soft Pretzels. Would you guys be interested in the recipes?! Let me know! Of course, it wasn’t just for me to pig out on (though it was all delicious!).
After hanging out with Benny and making him tired, Aaron and I headed out to my Aunt’s house for a picnic! Even though I just saw them last weekend, there was always more to talk about, and we had fun! We ended the night playing LCR. If you have never heard of it, you have 4 quarters (or dollars if you are getting fancy!) and roll the die. If you roll an L, you give a quarter to the person on your left, an R, you give it to the person on your Right, and a C means your quarter goes in the middle. It’s a fun game, but I never win! Haha
Being big Steeler fans in Pittsburgh is a complete given. When Aaron got us tickets for the home opened, I was more than ecstatic. We were able to catch the T (a trolley on train tracks) right by our house.. literally walked to it… which took us to the stadium. Even though they lost (let’s not talk about it…) Aaron and I enjoyed the day! We had beautiful weather. Nice and cool with the wind when the clouds were out, and warm when the sun was out. It was nice to get out and enjoy ourselves! Best part was I brought some soft pretzel bites, beer cheese, and skittles, along with 3 water bottles, so we didn’t spend any money! Can’t beat that
I spent the night making my workout schedule, making a quick trip to the grocery store, and parking it on the couch with Aaron and Benson. Perfect end to the weekend!
