It’s been about a week since I’ve posted. And MAN did I miss it! Not because I wanted to, before you think I hate all 7 of my readers. I mentioned in my posts last week about glamping this past week, and that’s where I was. Camping in the middle of the woods. (In my defense, I did try to download my Bloglovin’ app, but of course, I need the newest update on my iPhone.) It. Was. Glorious. Despite the fact that it sounded like a dog pound most of the time we were there and the 5-year-old with parents who don’t know how to discipline waking us up at 6.30 in the morning screaming and playing with his fake gun and then saying later through cigarette smoke, “Oh, did we wake you? He doesn’t have his medicine.”
WHAT!? So you’re telling me that because he doesn’t have his “medicine” you can’t tell him to shut up so the rest of the campers can sleep!? Puh. Leeeeez.
ANYWAY! Spending 5 AWESOME days with my family was absolutely awesome. You’d think only living 45 minutes away I’d see them more often, but I don’t. And I miss them. A lot. All the time. For about a month after we got married I cried at least 2-3 times a week. (Stop crying, Mom. I know you’re reading this!) So being with them constantly and talking and eating and hiking and taking pictures was amazing.
While we were there my baby sister, Rudy, turned 12. TWELVE! She already acts 16. Here’s a picture of her when she was one that my mom posted on Facebook.
And here she is, big 12, on our camping trip.
See what I mean!? Sheesh.
I would upload more pictures, but I’m lazy. The only reason I’m posting these pictures is because they’re my sisters and she already uploaded them to Facebook. Haha! Thanks, Shelby! 😛
Before we kicked off our awesome camping trip, me, hubs, sister, and her friend Austin drove 3 hours to Waco to see The Civil Wars! If you don’t know them, you really should. THE most amazing and unique band I know. The concert was at Common Grounds, a small coffee shop on the Baylor campus. First outdoor and small concert I’ve ever been to. I don’t think I’ll ever want to go to a big concert again after Monday night. It was so intimate, so close, and so awesome. Joy Williams is so cute and so genuine! John Paul White is incredibly sweet and their musical chemistry is swoon worthy. They work so well together. I felt like we were all best friends! Here are some more pictures I stole from my sister :).
The crowd after the show.
PLEASE check them out. I promise you your life will be better for it!
See you! The Mr. and I are going to finish celebrating his birthday today. He’s 26! 🙂
Sorries for the bad quality! But you get the picture. (hah! get it!?)
