Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! (actually, I hate Mondays...)

Anyhoo -- fun weekend which mainly consisted of the lake and symphony in the park.

Let's start out with the lake where my in-laws neighbor had a big party! Before we went Brad commented that it would probably be a bunch of rednecks and I way! Well, I am here to say that Brad was right - but it was fun and great people watching fo sho!

Here's Brad in his straw hat trying to keep cool in this crazy heat that we've been experiencing. I was pretty shocked that he wore this hat but thought it looked cute.

Most of the party people came by boat - we just walked over 2 houses.

We offered to put up the Stephens' tailgate tents to help give some shade.

There was even a live band who played all sorts of fun music.

My MIL and FIL who are always fun to hang with. (oh.. btw ... helped my MIL set up a Facebook page yesterday! can't wait to see how much she likes it!)

We headed back to Charlotte yesterday and I had plans to do symphony in the park aka 'Pops in the Park'. They only do this for a month each year and I love it! Last year I didn't get to go because we had too much going on so I was totally going this year!

Brad opted out which did not surprise me. He's all about 'couch time' on Sundays and I knew he wouldn't want to sit out in the park, drink wine and SWEAT!! Especially since it was 95 yesterday.
So, Kelli came with me and we had a great time. I would like to go again this Sunday but if so I won't get out there until right before the concert so it's cooler.

Of course, giving that lawn space fills up fast we'll have to go and lay our blanket out in the morning to save our spot.

I know today is the 'official' first day of summer and the longest day of the year -- but is it just me or do you feel like the summer is half over??
That's it for today!! CIAO!

Lake time - nothing better!! Rednecks and all.

Pops in the Park sounds like our Concert in the Garden series. So fun! But.....oh so HOT.

Fun weekend!

Some of my favorite people in this world are rednecks, and we call this a Poor Man's Yacht Club!

Redneck parties are the best!! Always a good time.

You look precious in that hat!! And that sundress? Darling.

My mouth is drooling looking at that white wine. Is it 5 yet?
