Thank Goodness for 3 Day Weekends!

I just love long weekends, especially when they involve Monday. Not only do you get the awesomeness of having a 3 day weekend, but there's also the added bonus of a short work week until the next weekend! Hopefully you all took advantage of having the long weekend (so sorry for those who had to work Monday :/ ) and had some fun. 

I went to the football game Friday night with Candy to cheer on Caitlyn. We lost, but it was still fun - and the weather was great! The cool air/breeze was just blowing in that night so it was the perfect time to take in an outdoor game. 

On Saturday, Candy and I went to the 'land of the woods' - we were on the prowl for a good camera she could use to take action shots of Caitlyn cheering. After several hours at the mall and Best Buy, we decided it wasn't worth it... more research needed to be done. On the way home, we stopped at Chipotle in Conroe (LOVE this place!) Seriously, if you haven't tried Chipotle you are missing out!

Just typing those two sentences has me wanting to eat it for supper tonight!

Since we, well Candy, didn't purchase a camera, we started researching online and thought we had come up with a great camera choice; so we gave up the search and started watching the OU game with Candy's hubs - one of his former players is now a Sooner!

He's pretty good, and will probably end up in the NFL. I'm just saying, he's kind of a big deal.


So, on Sunday we were having a BBQ at Candy's house. She was supplying the brisket (and her mama brought ribs and sausage) so I brought an appetizer-ish item (recipe to follow in later post) and had my mama bake some snickerdoodles.

Because let's face it, her's Are. The. Best. I could literally eat the entire batch in one day.


We had a great time hanging out on the deck in the cool moderately warm air, eating great food, and having yummy drinks. We also watched the TAMU game that night. All in all an excellent Labor Day celebration. 

Monday it was actually even cooler, don't go too crazy it was just in high 80's- but considering the 5,000 degree weather we've had for months now, it was nice and refreshing. I met Heather and some peeps at the park near the city pool and attempted frisbee golf for the first time in my life. It was actually pretty fun! 

I was skeptical as to how much fun it would really be since I hadn't thrown a frisbee in say, 20 years. I also didn't realize how similar to golf it actually is! But since I love golf, it made it more enjoyable. I'm going to pick up a couple frisbees (special ones are required, not just the kind we tossed around when we were 5) at Academy this weekend. I've been told they're about $6-8 each and with the local course being free, I consider that a good investment. I love cheap, outdoor hobbies! :)

We didn't get to finish the entire course as it was fairly windy and for reasons beyond my understanding the City built the course with a rather large gully running beside several holes. The wind made it quite difficult to keep the frisbee away from the treacherous abyss. But, like I said it was pretty fun and I will definitely be buying a couple frisbees and playing more often.

Hope you had an excellent holiday weekend and were able to get out and do something fun!



  1. daniel is obsessed with frolf/disc golf/frisbee golf. he has about 10 discs. he and my dad go to the course in hville everytime we visit. he even has a portable goal. i stink but we'll have to play sometime.


  2. Most definitely! I remember he had that goal by the pool, but wasn't sure how "professional" he was at it. I'm by no means good, I've only played once! ;)
