Steve is gone for the whole day because he is taking a BBQ class with some friends.
Apparently, this cook-teacher-guy is slightly famous, has won several contests, and has appeared on the Food Network Channel.
He was super excited when he left this morning at 6:15am. I joined in with his enthusiasm by rolling over and sleeping in.
I don’t get it. He’s acting like he’s meeting Thor or something.
There we are.
This was at the Zac Brown concert. We had a great time. It wasn’t all country because they also performed songs by Metallica (no thanks) and Billy Joel (yay!) and Red Hot Chili Peppers (what?) and then there was kind of a big finish with a rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody.
Here’s what I know.
I can’t tell you the last time I went to a concert.
And I can’t tell you the last time it took me an hour and a half to get out of a parking lot.
Which reminded me why I can’t remember the last time I went to a concert.
Did you know that you can listen to music while sitting on your couch? Because you can.
You can also do it in your backyard by your fire pit.
Oh, and, as a matter of fact, you can listen to music while you’re blogging. I am.
I am listening to The Fray.
And when I finish writing this post, I don’t have to get out of a parking lot.
Hello. My name is Kristin and I’m a party animal.
Laurie, me, Meghan
First, let me explain something. I’m standing on my tiptoes in this picture because both of my friends are tall. I am not short. They are just very tall.
Second, I’m not smiling very big. Hello? Kristin? Say cheese.
Third, I think the look on my face clearly shows that I’m a) hungry and I can smell the delicious food from the restaurant, and I want some, or I’d like some cheese and b) I have to pee.
That’s pretty much my look most of the time. Because I’m always hungry and I always have to pee.
Our community had a huge fundraiser for Jon on Monday. Over 20 restaurants participated and 20% of the profits went to Jon. We stood outside this restaurant and passed out flyers so that customers could hand it to their servers when the bill came.
I acted like a whackadoodle and pretty much accosted every single customer in the bar when we arrived and made sure every single person had a flyer.
Hello. I’m Kristin and I will do anything.
This was huge.
I ate oatmeal.
Except Special K calls it hot cereal.
I’m not a fan of oatmeal because of the texture. I don’t know. There’s just something about the mushy nature of oatmeal that I can’t get over.
This oatmeal had quinoa (pronounced KEEN WAH for those of you who might not know what it is. I can pronounce it but, I too, have no clue what it is exactly) – anyways, it has quinoa in it and it’s supposed to be good for you. I have no idea what else was in it and I would appreciate it if you don’t leave a comment and tell me that it also has poison and/or chemicals in it and I am harming my body.
I ate it. I ate oatmeal with quinoa in it and I’m still alive.
And I ate it, I said.
And I felt healthy until lunchtime when I had mac and cheese.
Steve painted the upper cabinets and is hoping to paint the lower cabinets soon. For some reason, he thought a BBQ class was more important than my office.
He is planning on under-cabinet lighting and a counter top for me. I will most likely put the printer and paper trimmer here . . . we’ll see.
It is definitely coming along!
I got a new iPhone case!
My other one was falling apart. Literally. Pieces were coming off of it.
I got it from My Custom Case and I paid a little extra for the Super Absorbent I Drop My Phone All Of The Time Case. I also already had one of those clear plastic thingamajigs on the front so I still have that. So my phone is pretty protected. I think.
People. This website has way too many designs. It took me FOREVER to make a decision.
I’m super happy with it, though, and I love how cute and unique it is.
That is, until you tell me you have the same one, but with your name on it.
Please don’t tell me that.
Alright. I’m off to shop for a trash can for my office.
I told you I was a party animal.
Thanks for the chuckles! And does that kind of oatmeal not taste like oatmeal texture wise? I like oatmeal cookies, granola, but seriously can not eat the regular kind of oatmeal. I bought a box (okay 2 bogo) and tried really hard to like it, but I couldn't even get that first bite down. . . I know it is good for you, but I just can't do it! Please tell the truth about it! 😉
I'm a party animal right along with you. I like my hubby, my kids, my cat, and my living room. Concerts are a lot of work. I think the last concert I attended was in 1999 or something. Your office is looking great!

Thanks for sharing the phone case website. I never knew I could make my own (a little naive I guess). I will have to check it out. Have a great weekend!
Fantastic First Grade Froggies
I just ordered my own custom case! It features my sweet doggie.
Thanks for the tidbit!

I have a BBQ obsessed husband too. We live in NJ and he went all the way to the middle of nowhere Georgia (had to drive about 3 hours after flying into Atlanta) to go to a BBQ boot camp with a famous guy for 3 days! Also, we went to Texas last year for vacation and got up super early to drive up to Austin for BBQ (I got new fancy shmancy shoes out of that deal ha!). He also has a special thermometer for his BBQ that I call the baby monitor. Anyways, I get how you feel. 🙂

I love the paint colors on your office walls. Can't wait to see the finished product of those cabinets! Have a great week!
Christy K says
You are so funny! We must be kindred spirits because the idea of paying money to go stand and see a concert when I can you tube the songs anytime I want amazes me! As does the idea of spending gas to sit in a parking lot AFTER the concert too! I loved your Five for fraturday!
Carolyn Kisloski says
Oh my gosh I so love your take on concerts. I agree totally. I am your kind of party animal! 🙂 I hope the fund raiser went really great. I bet it did!
