An accidental blogging vacay (photo overload)

Man I did not mean for an entire week to pass without posting once here.  I guess that's what happens when you are having way too much fun!!!  My excitement started on Wednesday and continued through Sunday.

Wednesday and Thursday were spent with Nicole and Tori at the Strawberry Festival.  Wednesday was our day to enjoy the fair, not just the concerts we had planned.  We rode some rides (always a good time), ate fried cookie dough (AMAZING) and saw The Band Perry.  The concert was a little disappointing but I love live music so I won't complain too much.  Thursday was the day I was looking forward to the most.  Luke Bryan was performing.  If you've never seen him before, let me just tell you.  He is one of the sexiest men alive.  For realz.  He can sing. He's hot.  He can shake his booty.  He's just awesome.  And he did not disappoint.  It was one of the best concerts I've seen.  It was so much fun!  We did have a slight detour right as the concert was starting to the First Aid building but we quickly returned to our seats (sorry to any Plant City peeps but the EMTs that were manning the First Aid booth were dumb.  Tori and I were pretty much calling the shots)
waiting for Luke
so amazing!

Friday our friend Mindy married her best friend Al.  It was a beautiful ceremony in a park under the oak trees with ocean views followed by a lovely reception. I'm so blessed to have been a part of Mindy's special day (plus she's amazing!!!)
My favorite picture

She's married!!!!!
Saturday we headed to Riverview to hang out with one of our favorite couples, the Hettinger's.  We had a kid free weekend so we definitely took advantage of it (and somehow a lot of tequila disappeared....wonder how that happened).  Unfortunately there are no pictures from that night (aside from a few questionable Draw Something pictures). Sunday morning we headed back to home to pick up the kiddos and head to the Seminole Pow Wow.  Every year, Seminole has a huge carnival weekend (the Pow Wow).  We're fortunate enough to live right across the street from the Rec Center where it's held so we always look forward to the Pow Wow.  This year, John's mom and brother/sister in law/nephew joined us for the festivities.  Noah and Emmy loved hanging out with their cousin AJ!!!

He loved it!!!  Can't you tell?!?!?
It was an exhausting week but it was the best week I've had in a long time.  I'm so lucky to have such amazing friends in my life!  I wouldn't trade this week for anything. Well maybe if I got a lot of sleep...jk!!!Photobucket
