Last Monday I returned from Seattle to temps in the 20s and snow on the ground. The city must’ve been determined to win me back over, because this weekend our temps hit 80! And my weekend was an eventful attempt to take advantage of the warm weather.
On Friday evening, KC and I whipped up an easy dinner for 9 of sloppy joes, salad, fries, and cornbread. We played a little Apples to Apples with our large group before heading out for a looong night of country line dancing.
The next morning, I awoke early with just enough time to throw on my golf gear and grab my clubs for a run by Chik-fil-A for chicken biscuits and 18 holes on a hilly course in Maryland with KC, Georgia, and (another good guy friend) Reno.
Just as KC was dropping me back at home, another friend pulled up to drive us out to Fredericksburg to visit the boating boys. I threw my overnight things in a bag, and an hour and a half later we were enjoying a night around the firepit in their woodsy backyard. S’mores were definitely involved.
After the neighborhood brunch buffet on Sunday morning, the four of us drove even further into the country where a secluded rock quarry on private property gave us plenty of room and an abundance of targets at which to shoot the boys’ handgun, AK-47 and AR-15. What a rush to blow stuff up. :)
I've posted a video here.
Completely exhausted from too few hours of sleep, I still chose to watch the Duke/UNC game with friends that afternoon and have a pleasant dinner outside with The Girl. I returned to the boys’ apartment for dessert before finally forcing myself to hit the sack! Eight and a half hours was heavenly.
I’m hoping next weekend will be chill enough to provide a recovery from this one.
I definitely have full-blown spring fever now, and I’ve already begun thinking about my summer entertainment. Here’s a preview.
