Florence y'all!

Took a couple days off from blogging since work has been crazy lately (both my day job as well as photography), but in all honesty I'm kind of loving how quickly my days at work are flying. So, excuse the fact that I'm recapping my weekend on a Wednesday...but here we go!

We had a lot of outdoors time this weekend. Caleb had the amazing idea to take me to the drive in on Friday and we saw Pixels + Minions. Both were good, but I personally liked Pixels more! I have to say, we witnessed something really awesome at the drive in. No one had their phones out, kids were playing frisbee and running all over the playground , there was laughter everywhere, the older family next to us was even playing Uno! It was SO refreshing to see!! We sat outside on our lawn chairs, ate flaming' hot cheetos and took ONE whole selfie the whole night :) it was awesome.


Saturday was spent free of plans and spending time in the gym, at a local pizza joint and relaxing like crazy. Sunday came and went and we found ourselves at the Florence Freedom game that evening with the youth group. It's been a blast to be so active with them this summer. They are teaching me a lot more than I teach them, most days. I love the crap out of them. For you local bloggers, head to a Freedom game ASAP. It was so cheap, and the entertainment was amazing!




All in all, it was a fantastic weekend. We needed a carefree weekend like this. I've been very overwhelmed lately (in a good way!!), and needed a little break!

  3. This must have been the weekend for the drive-in! Wheat and I went, too. We saw Ant Man (which I really liked) and Minions, which I thought was just okay. Such a fun date night. I've never been to a Freedom game, but you're right - you can't beat the prices at a minor league game of any sport! I love the Florence y'all shoutout in the title. Did you know the water tower used to say Florence Mall, but they had to change it because you aren't allowed to advertise businesses on public property (like water towers)? Fun fact.

  4. What a fun weekend! We have a drive in not too far from us, I really don't know why we don't go to it more. Now you got me in the mood!!

  5. I love when I see people enjoying themselves and putting the phones down! That would be the best thing to see at a drive in movie. I wish we had a drive in here!! Looks like a great weekend!

  6. Isn't it crazy to think how enjoyable it is to see people not starting at their phones these days?! 5 years ago it wasn't such a rare sight! I wish there was a drive in near me - I think I've only ever been to one once! Add it to our to do list when I visit next :) So glad you got to enjoy your weekend mostly plan free! When I first read your title I thought you were talking about Florence and the Machine and I was going to be super jealous you saw them haha!

  9. Sounds like a great weekend! I've always wanted to go to a drive-in... Love the idea and the classic feel of it... But then I think of the ten million bug bites I'd come home with so I alway nix the idea :/ but how refreshing to see people enjoying tg selves without cellphones!
