This weekend, one month comes to a close, and another begins. I cannot believe it is already August! But I am OK with that. I like summer. Until around, say, July 4th. Then, bring on fall! I can already feel autumn in the air. Well, not the hot, sweltering, thick air that has hovered over Nashville this week. But, in addition to school supplies, tonight I spotted many versions of Octoberfest at our grocery store. I even drank a draft Sam Adams Octoberfest last week at our favorite pizza place. (July? That might be a record!) Soon we’ll see pumpkin spice lattes, football, and Halloween! Oh, and we are this much closer to our fall break trip to Walt Disney World. Yes, I am ready for fall!
But first, let’s usher out July. Here’s what I have in store for this weekend.
Mother-daughter movie night
Hallie and I are just a little excited about “Descendants” premiering tonight on Disney Channel. I am major Maleficent fan. So is Hallie. We also like Dove Cameron (from “Liv and Maddie”). And since we both adore the musical “Wicked,” of course we are excited to see Kristen Chenoweth take on a villain role! So, we are ordering Chinese food and sitting down in front of the TV for a mother-daughter movie night. Brett will have to hang out in his man cave, er, garage.
Mom-only morning run
I am one week out from the start of fall half-marathon training. I am going to set my alarm and get out the door by 7 a.m. Well, that’s my goal, anyway. Next Saturday I will have no excuses, so I might as well get used to it this weekend.
It’s the weekend. So we will do what we do. Fire up the grill, turn up the tunes, and maybe have a drink (or two). Sunday is our day to cook a big meal together and in the summer, it’s always on the grill. Not sure what is on the menu. I will let our farmers market finds dictate that.
- “Best Day of My Life” American Authors
- “Party Rock Anthem” LMFAO
- “Song 2” Blur
- “One Week” Barenaked Ladies
- “Flashdance…What a Feeling” Irene Cara (really!)
That’s my weekend playlist. (I think I need some new songs. Will add that to my list this weekend, too.) What are you up to this weekend? Let me know in the comments below.
