This past weekend, I took a road trip home to New Jersey, by myself. Driving in a car for four hours with no kids yelling and no Elmo blaring in your ear is pretty surreal.
My first stop was my brother's house. Had a little lunch there, changed and we were off to see Taylor Swift. Apparently the guy at Quick Check when we got sandwiches thought I needed free food. I wasn't going to complain about that. The concert was in Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial. I have never been to a stadium concert before so I was pretty excited.
We got there, ate in the car and went in. Now, let me talk to you about the heat - OMG it was like sitting on the sun. There was a breeze at times but my lord, was it hot.
She really puts on a good show. She sang for two hours and she sang the songs you wanted to hear. These type of concerts are more shows then actual concerts, if that even makes sense. This show was sold out and the crowd was really into it.
It was a great time and I hope my niece had a blast. We didn't get home until almost 1:30am so that was a little crazy, but like I said totally worth it.
Saturday morning, I said good bye to my family and headed to west to see Kimberly and her family. We had a nice little breakfast, packed the kids up and headed to Main Street. Did a little walking, a little lunching and a little shopping. We even got a little ice cream. Real, ice cream, not fro yo, not Coldstone, real, oh my goodness I'm in heaven, ice cream.
After nap we took a little trip to Target - I won't go into detail about Target but let's just day someone had to come and unlock the car for us.
That night we headed out and met up with two our two other bestsies for dinner at Satis. If you are in Jersey City, go to Satis, it is fabulous. I promise you will not go wrong. It was so great to catch up with everyone. It doesn't matter how long we go not seeing each other, because when you are friends for 33 years, you don't skip a beat. We laughed, we drank and we ate. I hated saying good bye because I know it will be awhile before all of us are together again.
Sunday morning came and it was time to go home. We had breakfast, chatted and I packed my bag to leave. It's always hard leaving but I was excited to get home to my family too.
Thank you everyone for a great and fabulous weekend. Can't wait do it again!
