If Memorial Day is the official kick off to summer, then I kicked it off wearing a steel toed boot while holding a mug of beer.
One giant perk of my corporate ad gig is something that management calls Summer Fridays.
Summer Fridays are you guessed it, Fridays during the summer months that we can take off.
Every other from now till Labor Day.
My weekend started Thursday night then with drinks at my favorite bar, The Black Lotus with the original Black Lotus friends. :)
Friday morning I woke up and managed to drag myself to the gym. Wasn't feeling too good but managed to get my house cleaned up a bit. Rested for the afternoon and then Becky came over and we went to dinner at Zumba and then we watched, Hangover 2.
Saturday morning was still feeling a little off and since the weather wasn't cooperating, Connie and I changed our nature hike into a trip to the movies. We saw, The Lincoln Lawyer. My review is that it was a pretty good movie.
After that we did some window shopping and I found a new beach hat for the summer.
Home after that to head to Zosia's birthday party. Stayed just a few hours because I had to get up early Sunday for a Wedding brunch in Ann Arbor.
Sunday morning, I woke up got dressed up and drove to Kim and Tom's to ride along to Ann Arbor. Yolanda and her boyfriend Nestor got married in the woods. I wasn't invited to the actual wedding but came later for the post wedding brunch. Came home and rested on the couch just for a bit.
Then it was off to an impromtou dinner and drinks visit with Jan and Greg and Trevor on their deck.
Ignoring the tornado warning, I just hopped in the car and went with it.
Steak dinner and lots of conversation later, I headed home.
Monday morning brought sunshine for Memorial Day. Headed to Pam's Memorial Day Parade Party with my brothers in tow. It was nice spending time with them and on Memorial Day.
Home for a short nap after that, and then off to Kim and Tom's for a BBQ.
Very fun and hot. :)
All in all, I feel like I crammed a few summer weekends into one.
Can't wait to see what else the summer brings. If all the weekends are like this past one, my laundry may never get done.
And that's ok.
