Weekend Recap - Party Hardy!

Thank God for federal holidays being on a Monday... especially after an amazing weekend of nonstop partying!
Not only was last week off work amazing, but the weekend really topped it off!
{Warning: this post may contain too many pictures}
The weekend started off with the George Strait concert with opening guests, Little Big Town! There was a group of 8 of us that went. Michael's Mom, her boyfriend, Michael's Aunt and her friend, and two of our friends. We went out to eat on the way down and had a delicious Valentine's Day dinner!
 The concert was really awesome! The King played 32 songs! I've been to a lot of concerts, but I honestly don't think I've ever been to a concert that played that many songs! I think I could have sat there all night listening to him play. He truly has a ton of great songs! During one of his slow songs (I'm drawing a blank which one) a guy down by the stage proposed to his girlfriend. Now that would be a memorable engagement having the King be the first one to congratulate you in front of thousands of people! The only negatives about the concert was that beer was $9.75... and there was an air vent right above us so I was cold the whole time.

Little clip of "Pontoon" ~ Love that song! Makes me think of summertime!

And now the King makes his way to the stage!

An old school awesome hit - "Check Yes or No"

Little Big Town came out and sang a couple songs with George



He said his farewell and then there was some serious cheering to bring him back! Encore, encore! 
He came back and played 4 more songs, then farewell again! 

We didn't get home until 2:30am. I'm not a good passenger because I totally couldn't stay awake. Luckily, we were able to sleep in a little bit on Saturday morning.

Saturday afternoon we headed down to my Mom's to stay the night. We were in town for my twin girlfriend's 30th birthday celebration. One of their husbands set up the surprise and the girls thought they were going out for a bachelorette party. Then they showed up at a local bar and seen 40+ friends and family. The look on their faces was priceless! Then they said, wait so we're really not going in a limo?! Haha! We had a lot of fun hanging out with friends we don't see often enough! And we stayed up way too late! It's a good thing we don't do that often!
The look on their faces is pretty priceless ;)  

Crab leg dinner for their dirty thirty!

All the ladies ♥ 
The birthday girls!! ♥ 



Sunday morning we lounged around with my Mom and Greg and eventually went to breakfast. Or should I say brunch because we were not moving very fast in the morning... Once we cured our bellies and headaches, we headed over to my aunt and uncles that live on the lake to go out on the ice. Every weekend there is a bunch of snowmobiles, four wheelers, trucks, dirt bikes, ice fishing, etc out on the ice just riding around and racing. I used to go out there quite a bit when I lived at home. Michael's never been out on the ice so I was kind of excited to take him out there. Plus, we never really get to hang out with my aunt and uncle so it was nice to get together with them too!

We passed this sled and we all died laughing at the age and the raised handle bars like a chopper. Then it pulled up next to us and we really died laughing. I mean, I think I almost peed my pants it was that funny. {You had to be there because I'm sure you don't find it as funny reading this}. Then it turned into a joke that this 1978 sled was nicer than the sled Michael recently bought me. Haha! ;)




Phew! That was a lot of pictures to upload!

Looking back at the pictures from the weekend really makes me giggle and smile - so many laughs and memories! It honestly was one of the best weekends we have had in a long time!! I'm especially thankful for my husband who spent a small fortune to take us to the George Strait concert for Valentine's Day along with all the other festivities we attended! I cherish the weekends and memories that we have together when he is home! {and he's home for the week, yippie!} 

I hope ya'll had a great weekend and a special Valentine's day! ♥♥♥

Linking up with Lisa and Bella to share our weekend recap!

Now I better get back to house work! Since we weren't home all weekend, our house is a disaster!
