Memorial Weekend Recap


What a great memorial weekend! The weather was ammmmaazzzzing! Kev and I had no major plans and decided to spend the weekend sprucing around the house, hanging with friends, playing with the doggies, and grilling out.   It was fabulous.

Friday we kicked off the weekend with a suite at the Lexington Legend’s game (the Legend’s are a minor league baseball team here in Lexvegas).

Kev scored us the suite at a silent auction during a charity even we attended in April called “Wig Out.” The event raised money to purchase wigs for cancer patients.  Check out our cutesie wigs.

I couldn’t tell you a single thing about the baseball game, but I do know that we were surrounded with great friends and fellowship. It turned out to be an über fun night. I felt so blessed to have such a great group of people surrounding us.
Little brother came :) Made his sister very happy

so fun!
majority of the group...ignore the yucky white light in the photo.

Saturday morning we headed out for our first motorcycle ride of the season and stopped by the local Harley Davidson to check out their Memorial weekend festivities.  HD was having a very classy bikini contest (gag) and a stunt rider along with burgers and hotdogs.

We opted for lunch at our local fave, Harry’s. J

Sunday, we spent the morning at church and spent most of the afternoon doing errands around the house. Kev worked on our new patio set and grill that we plan to spend many evenings with, while I did some spring cleaning. I am talking some serious spring cleaning that required me to be on my hands and knees scrubbing baseboards and showers galore. I felt so accomplished afterwards…my momma would have been so proud.  I of course partook in my favorite Sunday ritual after church of visiting Orange Leaf frozen yogurt…the confetti cake is my absolute favorite.  Yum!

On Monday, I had to work a couple of hours while, but spent the evening grilling out with some friends on the new patio (patio = still work in progress). I made some delicious burgers and fresh corn on the cob. I completed the meal with a peach cobbler and veggie skewers that were pretty darn tasty as well.

the doggies are with us every step of the way

veggie skewers! please excuse my gross gym hair
 I had a great weekend and took the time to reflect on those who have given their lives to allow us to do the things we do every day. I always think of my papaw that I never knew during the Memorial Day holiday. He died just before my mom found out she was pregnant with me. My 86 year old granny always displays the biggest and brightest floral arrangement at his gravesite with my mom every year on this weekend. I hated I couldn’t be at home to share the experience with them. Like so many others, he fought bravely for his country, and for that I am so grateful.  I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday filled with family, friends, appreciation, and love. God bless each and every one of us!
