Sequins and Sea Breezes: Weekending

Weekending

3/28/2016


Happy Monday friends! Hope everyone had a fantastic Easter weekend! I'm jealous of all of you who had a 3-day weekend. I was thinking of you while I was slaving away working on Friday. ;) I can't really complain, the drive in was wide open roads, I got Starbucks for the first time in like 3 months and it was a fairly easy day. This week is looking like it's going to be pretty busy for me though so excuse my slow replies or possible absence. I have two offsite meetings this week, one on Thursday and one Friday so I'll probably be MIA both of those days. But for now, linking up with my bloggy bestie B for our weekend recap!



 Like I said, Friday started out with a light drive in and Starbucks so it was a good morning. I had hoped to leave work a little early to beat the storms moving in but no such luck. I ended up heading out right at the tail end of a pretty crappy storm which meant over an hour drive home due to accidents and traffic for me. But by the time I got home it had cleared up and when we headed out to Dewey's Indoor Golf and Bar it was gorgeous out.


Saturday I woke up and enjoyed breakfast from Chick-fil-A for the first time in at least a month. After that I got ready and headed out to the Disney area with Kerri and the boys to watch our first (and last since there's only one more week) spring training game. We watched the Braves vs. the Mets and it ended up being SO hot out. The forecast called for rain but it was 93 and sunny so we left the game a little early to get some a/c.


 After the game we headed over to Downtown Disney (yes, I know it's called Disney Springs now but it will forever be downtown Disney to me) for some food and lots of adult beverages.


Sunday we woke up early and headed over to Busch Gardens for some roller coasters and Third Eye Blind. 3EB was performing for Busch Gardens' Food and Wine Festival so we knew we had to go see them and Kerri had never been to BG before so why not?


We got to the concert area about an hour and 20 mins before the concert was scheduled to start to get a good spot and ended up being right on the fence behind the VIP section. While we were sitting there chatting a guy walks over and is like "you guys look like you want to play a game to win VIP tickets" so of course we played and ended up winning so hello VIP section! We weren't as close as the last time we saw them play but we were direct center about 6 rows back! If you follow me on Snapchat {pamelanicole84} I posted about a zillion snaps of the concert #sorrynotsorry


 It was definitely a busy but good (and very expensive!!) weekend.... but now I need a nap!

Hope everyone has a fabulous week!

  24. You definitely kept yourself busy this weekend! I still call it Downtown Disney too so don't worry about it. lol We went to BG's Food and Wine festival last year and I was so impressed with the food and drinks and the concert. Now I can't even remember who performed lol but I remember how much fun that day was!

  32. Yessss 3rd Eye Blind! Hah that brings me back to owning their "single" CD ages ago. I've been to that baseball stadium years ago in college. Feeling old now thanks to you lol ;) Happy Monday!

  33. That's a bummer about having to work on Friday, but sometimes the light traffic will definitely help that, even if it's just a little bit! It sounds like y'all had such a blast going to a spring training game, and also to the concert at Busch Gardens! I've never been to Spring Training, but it always looks like so much fun! I'll have to remember to try and go earlier in the spring though, because it sounds like it was extremely hot when y'all were there!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sorry you had to work Friday! But it sounds like your weekend made up for it. Hard to believe it was over 90 there already! Yuck! Hope you have the best week!

  38. I have some friends at Disney right now for Spring Break and when they posted a picture of "Disney Springs", I thought it'll always be Downtown Disney to me, too!! Hate that you had to work on Friday, but glad it was still a great weekend!

  40. Sounds like such a fun weekend girl! I was struggling with you at work on Friday, but traffic was so light I loved it!
