A Rooftop Concert, Lobster Mac, and A Great Autumn Weekend.

IMG_5589 So… this weekend was mostly just me cleaning the house, and listening to the LDS General Conference. I always love Fall conference weekend. Church is on TV for two days, and we get to hang out in our pj’s instead of our Sunday best. It’s always such an uplifting weekend, and I’m able to relax a lot. The weather’s also turning very Autumn-like so it’s a good weekend every year.

Friday night we went to a free concert in Provo. They do a series called the Rooftop Concert Series, which is a free outdoor concert every first friday from May until October. It’s usually local bands and usually makes for a great way to discover new music for free under the stars. Friday was their 5 year anniversary season closing night event. The Neon Trees (from Provo) headlined the free show and the first two bands were The Blue Aces (an all girl group whose chick bassist was AMAZING), and the group Fictionist.

We Justin got some AMAZING Lobster Mac N Cheese from the Macarollin food truck, and I salivated while he ate it. Curse my lactose intolerance! Sometimes I want to just eat it and suffer through the pain. I do sometimes on special occasions where I know I don’t have to be anywhere for a couple of days, but I wanted to enjoy my evening and the weekend. Then, we went and watched the first two bands from the VIP area — thanks to my friend Whitney — where there was much more elbow room to be had. I am not a happy camper when most other people’s bodies, besides Justin’s, are touching me.

Explanation: I rarely want to smell your skin or breath unless we’re on “get some” status, and since only my husband and I have that… yeah. No. (I also hate shopping malls at Christmas for this very same reason.) IMG_5591 The weather was in the high 50’s/low 60’s and it was a cloudless night. Perfect for an outdoor celebration! I always love a live show, and I always love a free one even better! We really struggled with focusing the camera, and we also prefer to make ugly faces in pictures. I don’t know why, one day our kids are going to be embarrassed. That’s the plan, anyway.

It was a great weekend, guys. The second in a row, and the first time in months that I’ve felt happy for more than two days consecutively. I felt happy and energetic all week long. It feels good to be back. Even if it’s just temporary. I don’t know how long this will last, but I’m immensely grateful the depression fog has finally lifted for a while.

October, you’re lookin’ up!

What did you guys do this weekend?

  1. Lobster Mac and Cheese is my weakness! I rarely eat pasta or creamy foods because of how bad they are for me, but they are my go-to comfort food. It’s good to indulge every now and then, right?

    • Sadly, I never could either until it decided to murder me from the inside. Someday dairy and I will be friends again… someday.

    • THE BEST! Mine was gone last weekend, and I literally watched almost an entire season of Gilmore Girls after discovering they were on Netflix. Can I get an AMEN?

    • Northern Utah is a fall dreamland right now. 50-70 degrees, fall colors everywhere. I highly recommend it.

  2. Glad you had an awesome weekend! I spent mine being sick and blowing my nose and sleeping and blowing my nose some more. But things are looking up now, it seems. Thank god.

    • Ugh, what a bummer way to spend a weekend. But by now you sound like a professional at nose blowing… perk?

  3. This weekend my husband and I did some errands, after he went into two bike races (one Saturday was 6hrs, the Sunday one was “just” an hour up a freaking mountain). We went to grab some honey crisp apples that were on sale for $.98/lb at the store and boom – we walked in on Sunday and they were $2.48. Frig that! Lol.

    Then we went to McDonalds. :)

  4. Aw, this looks like such fun! My weekend was spent sick and on the couch. Thankfully, my nice boyfriend ran to and from the grocery store getting me whatever I thought would make me feel better!

  5. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! :) I know exactly how it feels to finally be able to enjoy more than an hour or two and it’s SUCH a good feeling! so happy you were able to enjoy the weekend :)

    • My husband was out of town last weekend, and I discovered Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Never have seen it. Ended up watching almost an entire season. It was shamefully amazing!

    • My husband was gone last weekend, and I literally watched almost an entire season of Gilmore Girls on Netflix. It was a shamefully amazing way to spend a weekend of solitude.

  6. What a cool thing to be able to do! I wish we had more outdoor concerts around here, but we basically live in the boonies! :) And I’m with you on the personal space thing. Yuck!

    • Yeah, it was pretty great! Except the part where I watched my husband inhale the mac and cheese while I stood there salivating. ONE DAY IT WILL BE MINE. But for now, I’ll just stick to my non-dairy veggies. haha. So I don’t die a horrible slow and painful lactose intolerant death.

  7. I JUST had mac and cheese and I was seriously thinking this would be great with lobster or shrimp. AH! Looks like you had a great weekend!

    • You must try it! If only for my sake, since I am currently on a 100% non-dairy diet. HEAVEN HELP ME.

Fun fact, if you buy a vegetable with seeds, you never have to buy seeds again. Just scooped, washed and am drying these seeds from a spaghetti squash I bought at Trader Joe's. I did this with the honey nut squash from a couple weeks ago as well. I can't wait to grow some of these! I don't have a lot of space, but I'll find a way. #saveseeds #seeds #spaghettisquash My sweet mint and lemon balm got haircuts last night. I'm drying two big bundles in my kitchen. They say lemon balm tea is great for anxiety. #herbs #tea #lemonbalm #mintleaves
