Weekend Wrap Up: 20/20 Experience Edition


On Friday night, Mary Katherine & I took her 16-year old niece to see Justin Timberlake at Bridgestone Arena, & by "took her to see Justin Timberlake", I mean WE went to see Justin Timberlake & we let a 16-year old go with us.  Real talk.

I don't even know how to begin to review a concert, but JT's 20/20 Experience is hands-down the best concert I've ever seen.  It BLEW MY MIND.  The 3-hour plus concert included a stage that rose up & moved over the floor of the arena, covers/samples of Michael Jackson, Kanye, Elvis & my personal favorite, Bell Biv Devoe, & the best backup dancers I've ever seen.  It was sooooo awesome!

Due to apocalypse-level weather, my Sunday lady running group moved the run to Saturday.  I had had about 1 hour of sleep, so it wasn't a personal best.  Plus, there was a race at Shelby & the park was closed until 10am.  I had no idea you could close Shelby Bottoms.  Spoiler alert:  you can.  After our re-routed stadium run, we went to Barista Parlor for lattes & moto biscuits.  And then I went back to sleep.

My oldest niece Abigail turned 8 recently.  On Saturday afternoon, I drove to Smyrna for her One Direction themed birthday party.  Y'all, she is serious about One Direction.  It's hilarious.  These are the wall decals I got her.  I'm not sure, but I think she likes them.

On Saturday night, we went to dinner with friends then all headed over to a house-warming party for pals Neil & Alicia.  Since I didn't have to get up & run on Sunday, I let Heidi make me her infamous "pank drank".  This is my I-don't-drink-anymore-omg-this-drink-is-strong-these-are-all-my-teeth face.  Woof.

Man, it's amazing how much you can get done in a day when you don't spend the first half of it running.  I got up, went to the grocery store, put a pot roast in the crockpot for us & made white chicken chili to deliver to friends.  And this was like before 9:00am.  TCB.

Girrrrrrl. Pink Drink is where it's at. My secret boyfriend made them for me each afternoon after we came in from the beach.

And JT was totally worth the ticket price. Amazing!

Sarah - If I could go back in time, I'd actually pay more if it meant I was down on the floor. Priceless!
