This, my friends, has been the busiest week of the year for us!!  With the pressures of school starting next week, our college son gathering his “stuff” to move back to school and getting our home ready to put on the market, we are just looking for the excuses to have fun- and we have found a FEW!!

1.  The One Direction Concert!!  A friend and I braved the rush hour & concert traffic to see this very popular boy band!  Yes, we and 40,000-ish others watched them perform- we didn’t even need our ear plugs!!  I only knew 3 of the 24 songs, but I found the songs to be really catchy.  The highlight for me wasn’t waiting in line to use the bathroom, missing the warm up band due to traffic, or paying $5.50 for a bottle of water.  It was seeing my daughter grin from ear to ear for the entire night!!  That was PRICELESS!!

2.  A Chartered fishing trip on Lake Michigan with Grandpa! My Dad has taken our boys fishing out on fishing trips for years, but due to busy-ness and coordinating schedules, they haven’t gone for a few years.  The boys didn’t complain about being up and on the road by 4:15 am to head for the lake, they knew the fun they would have!  This trip was even more special because it’s a rare thing to get all of the boys together at one time.  It was a chilly morning and the fish weren’t biting as much as usual, but just being together, having plenty of snacks ( and naps for some) proved to make for a successful trip! They caught Coho Salmon, King Salmon, Lake Trout & Rainbow Trout! Oh, and stopping for a burger afterward was awesome too! Thanks, Gma & Gpa!!

Guess what we had for dinner??

IMG_45653. Hubby had a golf getaway weekend!  It’s been a little stressful at work for my hubby and golf was just the prescription he needed to de-stress! He had a chance to play a course that he hasn’t played in years and it was BEAUTIFUL!  He arrived home with a smile and a much lower stress level- can’t get any better than that!
