This Sunday was spent celebrating one of my very best friends engagements!!

Kyle and I spent the morning being lazy and then headed over to Claires parents place around 3.

As soon as I got there I was gifted with a VERY pleasant surprise.

She asked me to be her Matron of Honor and I could NOT be more excited!!

I love this girl with my whole heart, she has been SUCH a good friend to me,

and I’m so thankful to have her in my life!

The day was spent sipping on sangria and chatting with Claire’s closest friends and family.

Now that we moved a little North we are WAY closer to my sister and brother in law,

and we get to see them way more often which is a MAJOR plus! 

Kyle and I had been planning on having a date night Friday

 and then my brother in law texted me asking if we all wanted to get together 

for dinner and margaritas! 

Well, DUH!

[typical photo…gotta love him]

So a double date night it was!! 

I’m going to be REAL honest for a minute and y’all can judge all you want…

because hell, I would judge too.

So there were 4 of us total…

we ordered THREE large quesos and devoured every single one before the night ended!!!! 

Of course we didn’t order them all at once…

hahaha oh my gosh we were all in shock and so grossed out with ourselves at the end of the night.
The waiter was definitely confused and probably a tad worried.
I think it’s safe to say I won’t be craving queso for a while!

My body was not too thrilled with my food choices this weekend
and I’m going to be at a beach all day Friday and Saturday so i’m thinking
about doing a little “3 day quick start” tomorrow!
It actually came with the program i’m already doing!
[you can ask me about it here > Monica.Kaase@gmail.com]


My friend Jamie and I (that I met through Beach Body) are planning on doing it together,
so that’ll definitely help having someone else keep me accountable!

What are everyones plans for the 4th?!

This Fathers Day was extra special for my family.

We didn’t just get to celebrate this amazing man standing in between us.

But we also got to celebrate the amazing men we love and miss that are now in Heaven.

My cousin Jack came into town so it felt like my Uncle was here with us, 

and it was SO awesome talking about old memories.

My Mamaw was also there which helped us celebrate the life of our sweet Papaw.

We all went out to lunch and had the best conversations and stories,

The day honestly couldn’t have been better, and I am SO grateful that I have

so many amazing men in my life to celebrate.

Happy Friday Y’all.

Like I said…this weekend was one for the books!

Saturday a bunch of us went to A Day in The Country at the Woodlands Pavillion,

it may or may not be my favorite time of year!

A Day In the Country is just what is sounds like…A day full of amazing country artists!

The concert is an all day thing but we decided to all meet up and hang out for a while,
then show up to the concert later in the day when our favorite artists would be performing!

We all met up and Kyle’s aunts house for a few hours to eat, drink, and hang out.
Then we headed out to a bar for a little pre-concert fun/booze.

It was kind of the best day ever…

Why do weekends have to end?!

 A bunch of family and friends all met at a Alicia’s Mexican Grill to celebrate.

And then most of us headed out to Big Texas for a little dancin’!

Kyle and I MAJORLY need some dance lessons haha

Both of us are pretty athletic but we are the absolute worst dancers EVER.

But of course we still have a blast doing it!

Pretty sure a big group of us are going to go get some lessens somewhere

in the near future! 

Sheesh, this weekend was SO awesome but went by way too fast.

Definitely not ready to take on today and my never ending to do list 🙁

But, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. 

Happy Monday!
