Weekend Recap ~ July 4-7, 2013

Independence Day fell on a Thursday this year, so I’m wrapping it all into a looooong weekend recap!

Starting with Thursday, July 4, I woke up much too late and with the start of a cold (day 1 of vacation – boo!).

The original plan was to head to Kenosha and spend the day out on the lake, followed by dinner and fireworks. My parents went out all day, but Husband and I stayed back and relaxed around the house. We did walk around town a bit with Kate just to get out of the house.

My parents came home for a cookout dinner and we watched the Grand Geneva fireworks from a distance with some bubbly. It turned out to be a great time!

I woke up even worse on Friday after sleeping terribly due to an awful cough. I don’t think I got out of bed until noon. Nevertheless, I rallied for the evening.

Friday night we got our dose of Timmy at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI. Thanks to my daddy who surprised us with tickets! I don’t think he realized how much guitar and awesomeness was wrapped up in country music. Between the opener, Brantley Gilbert, and Tim McGraw…I think my dad became a country fan on Friday night!

It’s been 10 years since my last Tim concert and I have all of Tim’s 12 full release CDs. The man is Nashville’s finest modern day cowboy and I hope it doesn’t take me 10 years to get back to another concert.

Let me also say that I have zero qualms about growing old if 46 looks as good on my husband as it does on Tim! I mean, 26 (or however old he is below) wasn’t his finest year – LOL!

Saturday started off with another good old fashion sleep-in and a straight-up lazy day. I did a little more bachelorette party planning (one week away!) and my mama glued some corks together for the table cards. Overall it was just the relaxing day I needed to kick this sore throat.

Sunday was our last day at the lake before heading home and I was still sick, yet again rallied for some shotgunnin’ and pistol shooting. It was sweltering hot in the range, but we all had a great time blowing off some steam!

In just a couple of days I head off to Colorado for my little sister’s wedding week. I can’t wait!

This week is a crazy one as a result, so I’m signing off the blog until next weekend’s recap of the bachelorette party! That ought to be a wild one. Have a great week!

productivity for working moms

welcome!

I'm Jessica!

I used to glorify "busy." If I wasn't busy, I wasn't doing enough. But when I became a mama, my entire outlook shifted.

 

The only way out involved a complete overhaul of my time, money & communication systems.

 

Today, I'm doing LESS and achieving more.

It's a productivity dream!

I'm still learning (and always will be!), but my purpose here is to help YOU achieve this level of space in your life too.
