Football, Festivals, Food, & Fun – Weekend Recap

 

Let me just say this was one eventful weekend!  We were on the go all weekend, and it was so much fun! There was Friday night football, hometown festivals, lots of food, and a ton of fun!

We started Friday night with some Friday night football.  We went to the local high school game and it was a great game.  Our team was behind the entire game and scored a touchdown with 17 seconds left to win the game!  I like watching the game, but I also I love hearing the bands and watching the cheerleaders! I just love the whole environment of football games!  And especially hometown games where you get to see literally everyone.Friday Night Football runandlivehappy.com

Saturday morning we got up early and went to our electric company’s customer appreciation day.  We even got a free gift for coming! It is an insulated cup.  This will be handy in the winter for hot cocoa.

They had vendors and food carts set up everywhere.  Football, Festivals, Food, & Fun - New Blog Post runandlivehappy.com

There was a big stage with entertainment all day. We walked around and looked at the vendors, and we bought a new paring knife.

You can’t ever have too many knives!  Jeremy picked it out because he doesn’t like mine, so I hope this means that he’s going to use it.  We didn’t stay here very long because it was packed full of people and you could hardly get through.   I forgot to take pictures because once we got inside, I got a little overwhelmed with the amount of people that were there, and had such a hard time trying to get through the crowd.

We left there and went to an estate auction near our house.  We were just curious about what all they would have; you never know what you might find.  But, this one was pretty much full of junk.  We stayed for a while because they were auctioning off a brand new fifth wheel travel trailer and we wanted to see how much it would go for.  The owner said he paid $104,000 for it, and it sold for $36,000!  I couldn’t believe they let it go for that!  The owners were downsizing, but I thought it must be sad to watch all of their stuff be sold and for not very much.  They didn’t seem to mind though.  Jeremy had his eye on that Jeep Cherokee.  He wanted it to just drive around town, and now especially up and down our road since it is being redone and is a mess.  But, it went for too much.

I really wanted that canoe.  Not sure what for, but it looked fun.  But, it went for way to much!

After that, we went down town to a festival that was going on.  It was full of food trucks, clothing and jewelry vendors, and musicians.

I loved all of these cute signs, but I don’t have a place for them anywhere.

We walked through all the vendors and got some lunch before the bands started.

Jeremy ordered a corn dog for us to share, and was huge!!

He also ordered a cheese on a stick.  Which he thought was going to be like a fried cheese stick, and I guess that’s literally what it was.  It looked disgusting!  I refused to try it, and I didn’t get a picture before he threw it away.  It was just a deep fried glob of cheese.  Yuck!  He tried one bite and tossed it!

My leg was really bothering me, so we sat and listened to the bands all afternoon.

Then Gloriana came on!  They were awesome!  I liked them before, but after hearing them live, I really like them now!

They really put on a good show.  They were energetic and they really interacted with the crowd.

And, I got a picture with Rachel, one of the band’s singers.

When the show was over, we headed down to our favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner.  We shared some cheese enchiladas and Jeremy got a taco.  The meal came with rice, but neither of us ate it.  I was stuffed when we left!  We always share food when we go out to eat.  This way we don’t eat too much, because portions are always so big!

On the way home, we stopped and rented a movie.  We watched Aloha and it was pretty good. I wouldn’t really call it a romantic comedy, so I’m not sure what genre it would fall in.  I liked Bradley Cooper and Rachel McAdams.  Emma Stone’s character was a little different and awkward.  When we got home, I got a picture of the full moon!  It was beautiful!

Sunday morning we got up and went to ride the 4 wheelers.

I didn’t make it very long because the bouncing and vibrations hurt my leg.  I didn’t think about that before we left.  But, it was pretty outside, and I am tired of being in with my leg propped up so I tried to just go slow.  Everything is still really green, but I did see a few leaves starting to turn colors!

Afterwards, I went home and propped my leg back up and iced it.  I go back to the doctor this week, hopefully something will change!  It’s frustrating to not be able to do my normal activities.

Then we went to feed the horse.  I tried to get a picture with her, but she was more interested in her food.

And we shot our bows for a little bit.  I was pretty proud of my shots.  There is only 4 days until bow season opens!

Last night, I made my lunch for today.  I’m having a spinach, chicken, and avocado salad with a side of roasted red pepper hummus and carrots and broccoli.

After a weekend of go, go, go, it was finally time to rest.  I sat around last night and worked on the computer and watched TV.  It was such an awesome weekend!

What did you do this weekend?
