Friday night we decided to skip using our season tickets to the Muny. Young Frankenstein was the production and as much as we would have liked to see it, we decided that staying home was a better option. If the grass got any taller, we would need a GPS to find the street and the laundry was spilling over. So we got things done. Afterwards, I decided to start reading Before the Fall and I'm loving it! Every spare moment this weekend I had my Kindle in my hand reading as fast as I could to see what was coming next. If you're looking for a real page-turner, click HERE to check out Before the Fall.
We had tickets to an outdoor amphitheater on Saturday night to see Cheap Trick, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Heart. Beforehand we grabbed a cocktail and a bite to eat at one of our favorite local eateries, Peel. Their wood fired gourmet pizzas are to die for, but Saturday night we opted for salad, appetizer and dessert.
Saturday night's weather could not have been more perfect for an outside concert. Even though these groups have been performing for years, they still sounded great. To enjoy the evening with friends made it that much more perfect!
After church on Sunday, I headed to the Cardinals game. The cool temps from the night before were GONE and the heat and humidity had returned to St. Louis. No matter what the temperature is, it's always great to watch baseball in St. Louis. Look at the view ~
It was fun to spend the afternoon with friends and eat baseball food. Too bad the Cardinals didn't win, but you can't win them all.
Sunday evening I actually cooked dinner. I'll be sharing my super easy recipe for roasted sweet potatoes on Tuesday. We will want to get this recipe! It's delicious!
And that's my weekend all wrapped up! What fun things did you do? Hope to see you back here tomorrow!
