The "official" end of summer :(

Well, folks, summer is winding down...Labor Day weekend has come and gone and that means fall is supposedly just around the corner...I feel like my summer FLEW by because we were SO SO SO busy every weekend, but it was definitely a fun summer for the most part!

We certainly ended summer with a bang this weekend...here's a quick re-cap:

Friday: short day at work followed by shopping, dinner, and drinks with Lauren and Venessa...among other things we all three got new purses:

Lauren's is a black Calvin Klein cross body bag from Macy's, mine is a medium sized sparkly (hard to tell in the picture) tote by Juicy Couture from Nordstrom, and Venessa's is a cross body bag from Macy's (I don't recall the brand).

Saturday: headed downtown with Kevin, Lauren, Dustin, and Venessa to go to this thing in the park called "Chalk it Up!" Basically different artists bought out squares of the sidewalk and did crazy good art with chalk! I don't have any pics of it though :(Then we walked around downtown and got some food and drinks...

After that, Kev and I headed home and I took a quick nap before getting ready to go see Taylor Swift with my sister!!!

We had so much fun! Taylor puts on a freaking GREAT show!!!

Sunday a wholeeee huge group of us (Kevin, Lauren, Venessa, Dustin, Israel, Sarah, Matt, Sam, and myself) headed to Sparks, NV (just outside of Reno) for this:

The day was full of too much food (the boys mostly) and booze (the girls mostly) and it was a GREAT time! I wish I had a picture of the whole group but I don't :( OH and Kev won $130 playing Blackjack and I won $70 playing an American Idol slot machine!

Finally, yesterday was spent hanging out and BBQing at my Aunt's house! In a nut shell, the weekend was full of food and fun with loved ones!

Today it was back to both the work and gym grind...I've been still having trouble staying on track with my workouts but all I can do is take it one day at a time. Today I warmed up with 15 minutes on the elliptical. Then I did a few different abs and obliques workouts along with some tricep and bicep work. Finally, I ended the workout with another 22 minutes on the elliptical. I am hoping to get my butt in gear again tomorrow gym-wise as well as Thursday. It'd be nice to do Friday as well, but the reality is that once Friday afternoon hits I tend to be in "weekend mode" and totally lazy and/or ready to party and have no desire to go to the gym. We will see though as I will likely be waking up early Saturday morning to head to Tahoe for a day trip  with Shannon and Chrissy (before Shan moves away to Seattle for school :( ) so there will most likely not be any partying for me Friday night!

OH also on Friday, two different concrete guys are coming out to give us an estimate on doing a patio in the backyard...I really hope its reasonable so we can start getting the backyard up to par before the rainy season starts and turns it into a mud pit! But then again.....maybe we could start a mud wrestling ring and charge people to both wrestle and watch the wrestling! Haha, kidding!

Alright, time to get crackin on some laundry and then hit the shower and the hay!
