I Don't Want These Nights To End

Happy Monday!!

How was everyone's weekend?!  It is starting to feel and look like fall around here.  On my 12 miler (which I PR'd at 1:40:02) this weekend I began to notice that the leaves were changing to a beautiful harvest gold!  Also, it's getting darker around 7 now.  I'm kinda super extremely pumped for fall.  SOO many good fall activities are on my docket and I can't wait to live them out loud.

I'm on my way to Sam's for a SPED reunion brunch right now.  I'm PUMPED about seeing most of the girls today.  I haven't seen Sam since last Halloween-----far toooooo long to see my favorite Mrs.

I made this recipe for the brunch.  I may or may not have scraped the sides of the bowl because the uncooked goodness is amazing.

I think they will love it.  If they don't…more for me <3  Sam and her hubs are healthy lifers like me and we have a few dietary restrictions in our group so I wanted to make something everyone could enjoy.  This bread is def a crowd pleaser.

This past weekend was one for the books.  I love being super busy on my weekends…maybe because I can't sit still…and this weekend definitely fit the bill.  After my first week back at school with nuggets, I was ready to relax and decompress with some girlfriends.

First Day of Year 2!!
There was cake this week at work…ALWAYS A WIN!
Usually I try to steer clear of the teacher's lounge until lunchtime because there's always sweets or treats, but I can't resist chocolate cake.  

Also, Friday our AHHHMAYYYZING Home and School brought us a Have A Good Year Breakfast
You know I ate about 3 times this amount of grapes <3

Thursday night, Daddio and I were supposed to go to the Phillies vs. Cubs game.  A leeeeetle history on the relationship between my dad, me, and the Cubs.  When the Phils' schedule comes out, my dad and I pick teams that we absolutely MUST see such as the Cards, the Nats (just because we usually ironically always end up seeing them) and the Orioles.  Then, we pick the teams that the Phils usually don't play.  The Cubs don't play the Phils too often and therefore we scooped up those tickets.  We tried to see them last year, but ended up going to Boston during that series.  So Thursday night we had Phils/Cubs tickets.  We headed into Philly for the game and IT RAINED!!  NOT A LITTLE RAIN!  COLOSSAL RAIN!  I felt like the Forrest Gump scene where he's talking about it raining sideways and raining up.

Doesn't this look like the best version of a slip and slide OF ALL TIME!?

Sad about the rain delay and eventual cancellation

Before the game was officially cancelled, we traded in our tickets for Sunday's game (perks of being a stinky team lol).  


Friday night was NOT a fail whale…quite opposite of a fail whale!  IT WAS LUKE BRYAN CONCERT #1!!!  Yes I said #1!  This year with XTU's MegaTicket, we got tickets for BOTH Luke concerts.  Winner winner chicken dinner!

Kate, Jess, and I went to see our boy and shake it for him.  

We forgot to snap a pic unitl it was dark
Kate and I also snuck a pic in
The concert was awesome and we definitely shook it all night long.  Dustin Lynch and Randy Hauser opened for him and we were both fantastic.  Dustin Lynch is SO PRETTY!  Like so pretty it hurts to stare at him. His teeth are SO WHITE!  Like ROSS GELLAR WHITE!  You could see them from the stage.

Saturday was a gymstravaganza!  We had a sub for spinning and it was ok.  It's always nice to take class from someone else and hear their music and see what they like to do routine-wise.  The teacher was a little monotone, but it was a solid spin sesh. 

I ran home to get ready for LUKE PART 2!  First, I went to Wegman's for a yummy sample stroll.  

The forecast was foreboding to be kind.  It was supposed to downpour and of course we had lawn seats.  We were kinda prepared for the rain.  And by kinda prepared I meant wearing white shorts, a braid, and bringing a plastic reinforced blanket.  Can you tell we didn't make it far in Girl Scouts?

Cait and me pre-concert!  Don't we look all countrified?
Who says Jersey isn't country?
As soon as we sat down the rain came.  We quickly realized our leggins and white shorts were PROBABLY not our best decision.

We promise we're smarter than this

Luke was great!  He's so talented and plays so many instruments well…plus he's not bad to look at ;)  My cousin Jen actually ended up giving us her tickets so we were instantly upgraded to the house.  

Look how close!!

Doesn't this guy look like Tony Romo?

Nathan Scott was apparently at the concert, too!
 The concert was amazing!  I always look forward to Luke's concerts because he sounds just as amazing live as he does on CD.

We only have one concert left in our pack.  Lady A and Sam Hunt we can't wait to see you!

Sunday was a long run--12 miles in 1:40!!  New PR!

Followed by a super excited trip to the stadium!

Soooo pumped that we might actually get to see the Cubs after 4 failed attempts

After church we jetted over to Geno's for a pre-game lunch.  I figured I could eat the cheese fries because I ran so fast and far.

I love you deliciously gross fat molecules 

Get in my belly
 At the game I snagged some pickle chips to avenge all the times they didn't have pickle chips at the beginning of the season.

Happy People!

The cutest Starting 9 Little Kiddos
I'm convinced that most people have children so that they can go to all the fun events at the stadium.

 Fun Fact!  If I was a pitcher I would want my entrance song to be a full on marching band that would come up from the shrubs by the bull pen like characters in Super Mario Brothers.

Life Goal!

Oh hey Greg Luzinski!  Daddy and I met him today
 Great game!  We won 7-4 and we got to watch the team work together.  We like our new team and I think they will do great things…next season ;)

This little sign was on 95
Wawa welcomes the Pope!

This weekend was great and I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
