Oodles of Fun…and Birthday Week!


July 11, 2011

This weekend was a whirlwind travel adventure…4 hours on Friday and back yesterday nearly took it out of me, but we’re home. When we arrived to the farm, Jeff turned to me and said “this is like the Paris and Nicole show–we are so not cut out for farm life”. Haha-boy is he right!

We had a great time with Jeff’s family. We took ATV’s around the 50 acre farm, picked blackberries for our homemade cobbler, grilled out with their Big Green Egg {which Jeff desperately wants now}, and just relaxed and spent time together. Definitely not a typical weekend for us…crazy how many more stars you see in the country, how many more lightning bugs there are, and how many more bug bites I came home with, too 😉
Last night, we watched Just Go With It–with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler…I don’t think I will ever be able to move on from this movie pick…Jeff said it was a terrible romantic comedy, and I have to agree, just don’t waste your time.

And now on the agenda for this week, we have lots of dining to do with friends…tonight with Nick and Jocelyn, Wednesday with the Graebe’s and our group of crazies since they’ll be traveling through Nashville, and then birthday festivities with family and friends–thank heavens the gym will be in my forecast this week, too!  

Cannot even lie–I am SO excited to see the special interview with Emily Maynard tonight during The Bachelorette…I know, I am such a lame junkie for reality TV. Off to grind the typical activities at work today–and working on a fun blog post for all things DIY-related for small little projects I’ve seen on some wonderful blogs lately…see you soon lovelies!!

  1. I love a good DIY post! Looking forward to it!

    PS – I am ashamed to say I am equally excited about the Bachelorette tonight.

  2. Pamela says:

    I can't wait for the interview tonight either! ha 🙂

  3. Tickled Pink says:

    hahaha, Im with you… quite excited for the bachelorette tonight!

  4. I too am counting down for the Bachelorette tonight. Can't wait! 🙂

  5. Meredith says:

    I can't wait for the interview tonight either!!! I rented Just Go with It a few weeks ago and I have to agree…Waist of Time and my dollar. lol

  6. Kamie says:

    Happy birthday week! Waiting for the interview too!

  7. sounds like such a fun and relaxing weekend!

    i've actually never gotten into the bachelor/bachelorette! but the way every blogger talks about it makes me REALLY want too, ha.

  8. Kristen says:

    We watched Just Go With It this weekend, too. I didn't completly hate it, the story behind it was cute, but the typical Adam Sandler humor (taken WAY too far in many cases) made it less likeable!

  9. Jocelyn says:

    Thanks for reminding me about the interview on the bachlorette tonight — DVR! See you tonight!

  10. melissa says:

    I had hope for Just Go With It – until they arrived in Hawaii and it became unbearable. It was about that time I got up from the couch and started doing laundry. 🙂 I wish Adam Sandler still made funny movies.

  11. I enjoyed following your farm adventures on Twitter! 🙂 That cobbler sounds yummmmmmmy.

  12. Sounds like a great weekend/week! And I am obsessed with bad reality TV, too 😉

  13. I didn't know Emily was doing an interview tonight. Can't wait to see that! At least a few minutes should be interesting! That one piece suit you commented on my blog is in my pinterest folders. I'm Mrsccarroll. Sorry I'd get it now but I'm on my phone 🙂

  14. The big green egg is a great investment! We love it!
