Weekend Recap: Country Bars & Lady Dates

Weekend Recap: Country Bars & Lady Dates

I had a pretty busy weekend. On Friday night I had a date with my favorite 5 year old. I spent the evening babysitting the little girl I used to nanny for. I was her nanny for over 4 years and once she started kindergarten and I finished college, we had to part ways. I miss her though, I was with her almost everyday for 4 years. So it’s always fantastic to see her.

Then on Saturday I spent the morning shopping with my mom. We drove to Ann Arbor and did some damage in Von Maur. Later that day I met up with my best friend. Lindsay and I have been friends since 7th grade and I just love her. We haven’t seen each other in a while, so it was great to hang out. We spent about an hour in Joann Fabrics picking out curtain fabric. The line of course was absurd, but we were together, so it was fine. We had a late dinner at Panera and did tons of catching up.

I also got to see her dog, Cooper. Isn’t he wonderful? He’s just so much fun.

That night Ivan and I went out for a date night. We went to the Whiskey Barrel, which is a local country bar. I’d only been there once and it was his first time and it was so much fun. There was a live band and we danced the night away. It was one of those great places that has a big mix of people who are just having a great time. No judging, just having a blast. My favorite kind of bar.

On Sunday, my sister, my mom and I went to the Women’s Expo. I go almost every year and it’s always enjoyable. We walked around and looked at all the booths and displays.

I spent Sunday night packing. I’ll be moving later this week and I am way behind on packing. Oh well. Moving is always a bumpy process.

  • Looks like you had a fantastic weekend! That women’s expo looks fun! I know what you mean about the nannying. I had kids that I used to watch for years and it’s hard to transition out of that. The oldest girl is in high school! I feel old!
