Summer 2014 Preview

My Facebook and Instagram {you can follow me here} feeds are full of pics of my friends' kids posing on their last day of school. They're so freakin' excited that they can barely stand still long enough for mom to capture the photo! I really feel like everyone should get a summer break. I mean, I'm not demanding the full three months or anything...but I definitely wouldn't turn down a week or two of required vacay...a little time for the whole world to just take a break and catch up on R&R. I can't think of anyone that would oppose who do I talk to in order to get this implemented into the business world???

Even though my J.O.B. doesn't come with a summer break, I still get excited for the fabulous warm hot-weather season! Here are a few things I'm looking forward to this summer...

George Strait {and friends} at Cowboys Stadium

This is going to be bittersweet! I'm literally counting down the days until this show {16!!!}, but I'm also kind of dreading it because it will be King George's LAST.SHOW.EVER! I've lost count of how many times I've seen GS in concert, but I'm willing to bet this will be his best show yet! I'm fully prepared to shed a few tears...

Donovan-Miller Wedding in Steamboat Springs, CO

Lindsay is a lifelong friend of mine, and I'm so excited to celebrate her marriage to Brandon over the 4th of July weekend.

Long-Weekend Getaway to...???

It's kind of hard for Ryan to get away during the spring/summer months, so we've decided we're just going to take a long-weekend trip this summer. Problem is...we can't decide where we want to go! We've narrowed it down to three options... We'll definitely get around to all three destinations within the next year or so...but  we're just having a hard time deciding WHEN to go WHERE! Please feel free to offer any recommendations/advice/insight!


I'm sure there will be several more exciting events as the summer progresses, but these are the B.I.G. events that I've got marked on my calendar with *stars*/highlighter/underlining/etc.! Well, I guess they're not all technically on my calendar given we haven't decided on dates for our undecided-destination vacay....but you get the point! Here's to a fabulous Summer 2014!

What are YOU looking forward to this summer?


  1. My recommendation -first stop Napa Valley.

  2. We just went to the Cowboy Ride's Away tour in February! Hands down one of the best! I couldn't even believe how many songs he played!! All three of those destinations sound awesome! I've been {recently} to Nashville and that was a great time! We weren't there long so we didn't get to do much but for a low key Monday night, we had a great time! I've also been to Cabo and that is an amazing place!! I guess depending on what your looking forward to the most {country town versus ocean view} that should be your first pick! Sounds like you guys have an awesome summer planned! We don't have too much going on unfortunately! So far just a couple camping trips!

  3. Napa, Cabo then Nashville :) been to all three and heart all! Enjoy your summer.

  4. I've been to Napa! It's pretty! You could lump a day-ish trip into napa and then visit San Fran for a day or two!! :) Thanks for joining us on this series!! I'm SO HAPPY to have met you!!

  5. When and where?!? That's the hardest part! The easy part is enjoying it all when you are there! :) All your options sound more than wonderful! Can't wait to hear what you decide on!

  6. I am so excited about the concert!!!!! My mom will cry. LOL Nothing else exciting planned. :(
