I know, I know!
I’m so totally and completely late. I suck at blogging, right?!
Anyway, here is my New Year’s weekend review:
Both Roger and I’s offices were closed Thursday and Friday, with a half day on Wednesday (New Year’s Eve). This much paid time off from work is almost unheard of, so we took advantage of it by visiting some friends in Tallahassee.
The live nearby-ish…Only a 4.5 hour drive from Atlanta! Plus, last time we visited, it was only for like 23 hours, and we thought we had to do better than that!
So off to Amanda and Louie’s house we went!
When we got there, we rested for a bit, then loaded their truck to take a short roadtrip to Dustin, Fl (hello beach!!!)…FOR CAMPING!!!! a) I have never been camping before in my life…at least not in a tent; b) I can’t say I was looking forward to it! lol. But we had the best time!
We got there after dark, and had the help of people we were meeting up with (12 of us in all) to put our tent up. Then we grilled some ribs, and waited to bring in the new year with some fireworks. It was a great time, indeed!
Having attended Florida State, all my friends are huge Noles fans, and so Thursday, we found ourselves at a sports bar to watch the Rose Bowl game…where FSU had an embarrassing defeat to the Oregon Ducks. Now. I don’t follow sports. At all. Never even heard of the Ducks before. But ow, ow Mariota! Def a fan now! Sorry, FSU! (And ok, maybe I was swayed by Obama’s thoughts on what a good young man he is. YAY for the good guys of the world!)
We got to see some pretty lights after the game…to try to brighten Louie’s spirits! We had a photo shoot y’all! lol (Unfortunately those pics were taken on Louie’s phone, so I’ll post those when he sends them to me!)
Friday was a day of laziness. Which I am ALL about! Roger made tacos for Amanda and Louie and I that night. Best tacos he’s ever done!
Amanda and Louie are very organic, make it yourself/grow it yourself type people (like…they make their own yogurt!). More on that in later blog posts for sure! But because of this, Roger made a few modifications…like using brown rice in his Mexican rice instead of white rice. I gotta tell you folks, just as delicious! It’s all about making those smart replacements!
Saturday we went shooting in this secluded gun range out in the country. I probably shot 10 different guns (8 of which were Louie’s!), and we had a great time out there. I even hit the targets, folks! #sniperstatus!
(the revolver…I was really excited to shoot this, though my face may not show it! lol. Look at dat stance!)
For those of you who don’t know me, please know I am not a girl who grew up around guns. The things honestly scare me! But it was so fun to shoot and aim, and feel like a secret agent! lol. We used the utmost gun safety with everything, and Louie helped train me on how to handle the gun so that I protected myself and others. We didn’t just show up and act like hooligans! Great experience for sure!
Hope you guys had an amazing New Year’s! Heeeeeellllllooooo 2015!
