Weekend Recap

Even though Friday was a workday, it felt like we started weekend on Thursday night with a trip to Charlotte to see a Panthers game. It was my first NFL game, and it was the perfect one to go to. They had an amazing Halloween halftime show, and lots of fans were dressed up for Halloween. Many of them were dressed as panthers, and I wish I had thought to do that also! It was such a festive atmosphere. Nick was originally supposed to be out of town Thursday night, but he had a cancellation in his schedule and was able to come home. We decided at the last minute to go to the game. We also had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, which was an added bonus.

 Panthers fun with my love
It was tons of fun, and we will definitely go to another Panthers game. The Dallas Cowboys are still my favorite NFL team though.
Even though I was a little tired from the late night at the game, I was in a good mood at work all day Friday because I was so excited about Halloween. I thought we came up with a really great setup to hand out candy, and I loved seeing all the kids in their costumes. We ended up having to put the dogs in the house though. Yadi was way too excited and Trinket kept growling at children. One of our neighbors came over for a glass of wine, and I enjoyed visiting with her a lot.

Saturday I skipped out on tailgating and going to the football game, and Nick went with our friend the Reverend (same one that married us). I studied, then went to the gym, TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, and Publix. Later that evening I got takeout from Miyo's and joined the Reverend's wife at their house to watch the game. She and her kids were kind enough to share their Halloween candy with me, so it was a great night. I was very happy not to be out in the cold, and not sad at all that I missed the terrible ending of the game.
Sunday I got some things done around the house and took it easy. Overall it was a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much for reading!

  1. I have never been to a Miyo's before, but heard several people rave about it. I will have to try one if I am ever near one.

  2. We went tailgating but the actual game! Brr!! Next October LSU plays in Columbia 10/10. We will have to meet up!

  3. Love your Halloween set-up! My parents have a long driveway, so they rarely get trick-or-treaters. Mom has talked about setting up chairs and a little table at the end of the driveway like your set-up!

    I heard it was freezing in Cola on Saturday! You definitely chose a good game to skip haha! Have a great week!

  4. Looks like such a fun weekend! I've never been to an NFL game, looks like y'all had a good time. I literally laughed out loud when I read about Trinket! We had to trap Miller in the kitchen so she couldn't attack any trick or treaters. Love y'all's set up!
