Louisville + Springsteen

Before I recap this past weekend, we're going back to the weekend before to recap our trip to Louisville!

I obtained my undergraduate degree from the University of Louisville and Jared is a huge Louisville sports fan so we go to Louisville several times each year!  Jared is also a big Bruce Springsteen fan so when we heard his tour was coming to Louisville we decided to add a weekend away this spring and go!  We saw him once before a few years back and he was AMAZING so we knew we didn't want to miss it!

We had a beautiful Saturday to drive into town!

We spent the early afternoon at a UofL baseball game!

With my sweet husband enjoying his first baseball game!

After the game, we had some time to kill before dinner so we decided to go walk around campus!  I had been back for one event since graduation but didn't have the opportunity to really check out all the new additions!

In front of the library (so many hours were spent there)!  In the Fall, I still sometimes miss a Starbucks cup and a good study session :)  (yes, I am a nerd who loves school!)
The Thinker.

So glad I was able to show this guy my old stomping grounds :)

My freshman dorm!  I can't believe it's been 9 years :/

Dinner was P.F. Chang's and it didn't disappoint!

Saturday, was a day spent relaxing & shopping until the concert!

Weekend getaways with this guy are one of my hands-down absolute favorite things :)

Ready for Bruce!

He was so good!!  For 67, he rocks like he's 27!

So. Much. Fun.

Before we headed back on Monday, I asked Jared to take me to Trader Joe's!  So many of the WW girls I follow on Instagram find so many low point options there and I wanted to go give it a try.  I'm going to post what I purchased and liked/disliked as soon as I finish trying all the things I found!

We stopped for lunch at The Cheesecake Factory before leaving town...

and enjoyed our cheesecake during a relaxing night of Blue Bloods when we got home :)

We had such a great time! 

Check back here tomorrow for my weekend recap of this past weekend!

Happy Friday!

We had the best time in Louisville last weekend!  I intended to have our recap up yesterday but you know, life happens!  Look for that post tomorrow :) 

Fuller House!!  So excited to watch this!

I started Pure Barre again this week!  I forgot how much I loved this workout :)  It's so tough but I love what it does for me mentally as well as physically.  It seriously makes for such a better day! 

We are really getting back into crock pot meals this month & loving it!  With our crazy schedules, it's so nice to come home from work and have dinner completely ready or just needing to throw some sides together.  It allows us to eat earlier & have more time to enjoy our evenings :)  Check out my Pinterest board where I'm pinning our favorite meals & meals to try and feel free to share any of your favorites below!

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!!

What's Up Wednesday

1. What we're eating this week...

This is a crazy busy week in our house so we're all about the crockpot & keeping it simple!

Last night, we had...

Nacho Chicken (very WW friendly!)

The rest of the week we're going to try some new crockpot recipes I can't wait to share!  If you love crockpot meals too, check out my Crockpot board on pinterest where I'm pinning meals we have or want to try!

2. What I'm reminiscing about...
Our awesome weekend trip last weekend!

3. What I'm loving...
My new sweatshirt from Gap!  Shay recommended these on her blog so I grabbed one while we were in Louisville.  Love it!

4. What we've been up to...

Weekend trip to Louisville for the Bruce Springsteen concert!  (Our weekend recap on this trip will be up tomorrow)

5. What I'm dreading...
Nothing right now!  We're about to get into our super busy season but I'm more excited for that than dreading it!

6. What I'm working on...

It's almost time for our business season to start (see my about me to learn more about our organic lawn care business) so I'm working on advertising, marketing and more.

I'm also working on getting some new and fun blog posts together!

Spring cleaning our closets & house is starting this month too!  I like to get everything cleaned out & organized before we get crazy busy!

7. What I'm excited about...

Garth Brooks concert in April
Starting Pure Barre again this month

8. What I'm watching/reading...

Blue Bloods - we are finally to season 6 and should be caught up to the live show this week!  Eek!! I love binge watching a show but always get sad when it's almost over.
The Bachelor - I'm excited to watch the last few episodes!  I think Lauren is my favorite to win.

I'm started a new Elin Hilderbrand book this week and can't wait to share my thoughts on it and other books I've read lately in my next book review post!

9. What I'm listening to...
A lot of Bruce Springsteen since we went to his concert last weekend!  Now I'm listening to lots of Garth to get ready for his concert in April!

Still to be determined!

I think we've about covered it all :)

14. What is your favorite Easter tradition...

Easter for our family always means church service & a family meal!  Can't wait to continue this tradition this year!  See our Easter Weekend 2015 festivities here.

Happy Friday!!!

I'm linking up with a few of my favorite bloggers today to share our Friday Faves!  Hope everyone has had a great week!  I am so glad it's finally Friday, we have a fun weekend ahead :)

I shared What I'm Wearing lately this week!  I'm living in a uniform of leggings, boots & tunics this winter :)

I shared my love for Pinterest & my favorite pins on the Momfessionals link up this week :)

My sweet husband surprised me by making dinner one night this week to finish up my Valentine's treats!  Gosh he is just the best :) 

We had Jared's family birthday dinner last night!  Yummy food and great company :)

I'm having my first Trader Joe's experience this weekend!  I know a lot of you all live near one so tell me what  I need to buy/avoid etc!  I know they have a lot of great things for those of us on Weight Watchers, so if you do WW and shop there tell me what you buy!!!

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!!
