InstaFriday

Every Friday, I join Jeannett of Life Rearranged to share the little moments of my week captured on instagram (I’m courttoney if you want to follow me).

 

My hubby was gone in Nashville at a conference for most of the week, which is normally sad. However, this time, after the whole lock-out situation, I decided we were going to have lots of fun while he was gone. What’s the saying? While the cat’s away, the mice will play? :)

.

First up, thanks to awesome friends who gave us tickets, I took Isaiah and my  niece to a UCLA game. We lost and it was hot as all get out, but we still had a lot of fun. Isaiah hasn’t been to a game since he was really little and he loved it!

.

Not surprisingly, his favorite part was when we would get a touchdown, but he also loved defensive 3rd downs. He got the hand signal down and would shout “oooooooooooh” with me as loud as he could. So fun!

.

After the game, I headed to Hollywood with some friends for the Sound of Music sing-a-long at the Hollywood Bowl. How have I never been to this before? 18,000 people singing along with the movie, some with costumes and props. Way more fun than I thought it would be. I’ll be going every year from now on :)

.

We went with a big group and everyone brought an appetizer, dessert or wine and we had a picnic before it started. Thanks to my friends holly & julie for inviting me!

.

To make it extra fun, Holly, Julie & I got a hotel right next to the bowl so we didn’t have to deal with the crazy traffic getting out and a 2 hour drive home. A girls night away was so needed! We slept in until 9:30!!! Then had an amazing breakfast before heading home.

.

We stayed the night with my parents to celebrate my sister’s 40th birthday (love you Heath!). Isaiah had the next day off of school, so we decided to visit Radiator Springs :)

.

Isaiah was SO excited to finally see Carsland. It was crazy busy- even on a school day, but we got on one ride. Other rides had much shorter lines, so we actually got to do quite a bit in the few hours we were there. Fun with grandma:

.

Waiting in lines with a 19 month old is not fun. Next time, I’m finding a way to strap him to me. Thank goodness he will still take naps in the stroller!

.

I got to see wedding industry friends at a super cute nautical baby shower for my friend Katie. Bre of Joyful Weddings & Hannah of Modern Bouquet did a great job :)

.

This birthday chain means I will have a 5 year old in less than 3 weeks!

.

My hubby has started recording our Christmas album (!) this week, I have been working on holiday banners and, yesterday, Isaiah asked to listen to this album. Tis the season?

.

This week has been all about flags, flags, flags. I am trying to get my etsy orders done as soon as possible so I can focus on Queen Bee Market prep! (more on that next week!)

.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
