Hey friends!! This is my first week to link up with Sami for Weekend Shenanigans. As you know, I posted Friday about how the lovely Miss Lacey from Sunny + Turquoise was here this weekend to hang out with me!! Y'all, I LOVE this girl. She is so awesome, and has become one of my closest friends. If you follow me on Instagram (@limitedspaceorganizing) you saw a little preview of the things we did this weekend, but here is a big picture dump for you all!
Friday: I unfortunately had to work all day, so Lacey got to experience what it was like to hang out at the pool in Texas during the summer. It was a cool 103 degrees, something I don't think most Illinoisans experience very often! After I got off work we went to a Mexican restaurant in downtown Fort Worth with J, his buddy, and his buddies' wife. We had a great time talking and eating. A little odd moment when Js' friend asked how Lacey and I knew each other (insert awkward explanation of meeting online and blogging). After dinner, they took us to this hidden gem of a bar downtown where we had some drinks and played corn hole and giant jenga. Lacey and I discovered we both suck at corn hole, and she lost at Jenga!

Saturday: We got up semi-early because we had 10 o'clock reservations to paddle-board at White Rock Lake up in North Dallas. You might think it's not hot enough to be out on the water that early, but you clearly have never been to Texas! It was already hitting 90 by the time we actually got out on the water. Paddle-boarding is officially a new favorite thing to do. If you ever get a chance to go, DO IT. For the first half-hour, it was pretty windy so I had a lot of trouble balancing. I didn't fall, but I ended up just sitting on the board and paddling, which I think I might like better anyways! Lacey and I sat and floated on our boards together for awhile, it was so relaxing. We got to watch J fall in numerous times which is always funny! After paddle-boarding, we headed down the street to a taco place. This place was so good and had $3 mimosas, yes, please! They also have amazing queso, and jalapeno ranch. It was all amazing and filled us up! After eating, we went back to the apartment to get ready for the concert. J found groupon tickets for the Buckets and Boots fundraising Texas country concert going on outside of Fort Worth. Pat Green, Casey Donahew, Turnpike Troubadors, and Tracy Lawrence were playing and Willie from Duck Dynasty was the MC. Lacey had never heard of Texas Country, and wanted a real Texas experience while she was down here. I don't think you can get more Texas than a Texas Country concert out on a ranch in the middle of nowhere! Lacey ended up catching the pick the singer from Turnpike Troubadors through into the crowd! She also ended up getting a picture with him later on. We had some really good hamburgers, and had a great time hanging out and listening to music.
