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