Last weekend I was talking with mom and after just a little prodding (I had been whining that she and some other family members were doing fun things without me), she convinced me to take this Friday off work. It was the last Friday before college kids come back to campus and things are just a blur for a little while.
I needed at oil change and after being sick for a few weeks, I had not gotten to enjoy the full potential of my last half Fridays in the summer. So, a plan was hatched.
First up, drop off car. Mom chauffeurs me away to the pool.
I even had my own sign inspired by Ferris Bueler's Day Off.
There was a pretty incredible spread of marinated mushrooms, cocktail shrimp, tuna salad, hummus, olives and pimento cheese.
And, of course, a nice beverage.
It was a very great day. I wish I had more pictures but I was too busy enjoying. We had a sushi lunch and a great visit with Mamaw.
On the spur of the moment, Paul and I hustled to Caet for our favorite happy hour right before it ended. It's been so hot (over 30 days of over 95 degrees) and no rain for 6 weeks, but we finally had a little bit of humidity and heat relief so we couldn't pass up sitting outside. Margarita for me, adult Coke slushie for him.
Saturday morning always means breakfast with our little crew at Sneaky Beans. One of our friends has a new black pug puppy that I adore. The other dog in his family had gone with her husband out of town and he actually seemed super sad about it!
Saturday night was Bright Lights Belhaven Nights. We had so much fun, though this time most of it was spent under the Pizza Shack tent! We helped them gather money and sling out pizza slices to the crowd. We had a lot of fun and couldn't believe it when the pizza was almost gone and it was 9 o'clock.
Hope you guys have a great weekend!
