Ready for the Holiday weekend

I'm ready for the long weekend.  Aren't you?
If you've been following this blog for long you know that my favorite holiday is July 4th but Memorial Day also holds a special place in my heart because of my devotion and love for our Troops and their families.
Thank a soldier this weekend!

We have a pretty packed agenda starting with tonight.  It's NASCAR Race weekend here in Charlotte and every year they throw a big festival in downtown Charlotte with concerts, food, drinks, all sorts of shenanigans.
Last night Pat Green was suppose to play but it got canceled because of a tornado warning.  I'm not going to lie -- I was at home watching the coverage and I was ready to run to the basement and hide under the stairs with Buddy and Brad.  So scary giving all the recent events.  Joplin just breaks my heart.
So - going back to the festival -- it's called Speed Street.  So, Brad and I are planning on heading down tonight to see a few concerts --one is EverClear and several others too. Brad has a friend in town so we'll meet up with her along with our neighbors and another couple.

Tomorrow -- we have a ton of errands to do then we will head the lake and drop Budster off and then get ready and head to our friend's 10th wedding anniversary party at their family ranch in Statesville, NC.  I've been to the ranch once before and there's only one word for it.
They have a tent, band, food drinks.  Should be good times.  I have a cute little dress to wear and I borrowed a pair of cowboy boots to wear.  I thought about buying a pair but I don't want to spend the money right now.
After the party we'll head back to the lake and celebrate our nephew Reed's 5th birthday!
And.. as you the lake we will boat, swim, drink, sunbath and eat.
I'm thinking I might talk Brad into even buying some fireworks for the weekend.
Sounds perfect to me.
What are your big plans for the weekend?
