Hello Monday and hello everyone! These are our last couple of days of September and by the end of the week we will be into October. I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya, Lindsay, and more right here.

I had a very full weekend. What about you?

Friday our favorite band was playing at the little pizza place at the marina on the river. We asked a couple if they wanted to join us and they did. The girls got frozen bellinis and they were so good!

The guys. Tom likes to give me that look for pictures and it is so annoying!

We split the barbecue pizza. We were hungry so the photo came after we dug in!

The music ended at 8:30 because we had a city curfew Wednesday night-last night.

Saturday I ran some errands and did some stuff around the house and then we had a memorial service to go to. I obviously do not have any photos. It was really sad and emotional. Masks were required but it was also open air.

Then, that evening it was time to celebrate the birthday of my college roommate. She chose a restaurant that used to be a gas station. The walls were open and the air was flowing.

All three gals chose a different fancy cocktail. I got something with Aperol and tequila. It was strong!

Three of us ordered the salmon on a bed of grits with vegetables and it was amazing.

We stood close to get a quick photo. I ordered a new fall kimono that I will show you Wednesday. The birthday girl is on the right and we roomed together for most of college and then for four years after college. We met our other friend the first day of college I think! Our dream came true a few years ago when we all were living in the same city again, finally!

Sunday I got a slow start. Around 12, Tom, Ernie, and I went out on the boat for a couple of hours. It was really cloudy and a bit cool.

We came home and I rested on the patio for a bit and then got a text that the birthday girl and her husband were going out to dinner on their boat so we went and met them.

Crazy, right? So we boated for about an hour and then ate dinner outside at their marina.

So, it was really full! And, I was really grateful for some quality time with friends. I gifted my friend the softest camo leggings from a local boutique and two pairs of earrings. I love giving gifts! I forgot to get a photo of her gifts!

What was the highlight of your weekend?

This week is supposed to get really cold around here and we are expecting some rain. I have a four day week! Students are off Friday and Monday and we are off just Friday with Monday for Parent-Teacher conferences – virtual, of course.

Thanks for reading!

    1. Thank you! Boating season is coming to a close – we will have to get more creative soon! We usually put it away the last weekend of October. I love to order salmon and this did not disappoint.
      I love your Kendra Scott studs and didn’t know they did add on deals. That was a good idea to take your mom there. I don’t think my mom would like KS stuff.


    1. Thank you! We have a really strong teacher’s union. We also get an extra day of pay for setting our rooms up. I have always worked it because I think I need to talk to parents and I like to talk to parents.
      Hope you have a great week, too!


  1. I love living vicariously thru your weekend shenanigans! You know my highlight : being at the beach and getting our garage floor painted! HAHA! We were so happy with how it turned out and now I want to paint the garage floor in our Tulare home. Weird yet satisfying! Got to have lunch with our oldest daughter and our granddog on Friday and we ate dinner at our favorite restaurant, Ember, on Saturday. I took a semi- break from IG and didn’t post but just enjoyed the weekend with Tony! Have a great week!


    1. Aww thanks! That garage floor looks amazing! Nice that you got to see family and eat out! You and Tony seem to have a great relationship. I thought his name was Mike for some reason? Ha! It is inspirational to me to see so much fun after kids are grown. I need that! I am still sad sometimes.


      1. It does really get good after the kids grow up- graduate college and you get pay raises! Haha! Mine were 4 years apart so Kelsey graduated and Taylor went in. Mike haha! That’s funny. Nope Tony is my hubby’s name!
