Adventures in Auburn

Friday night.  Possibilities for entertainment are endless.  Just grab some friends and go....

... to Cracker Barrel.

Yep, this is where our Friday night began.  Checkers, rocking chairs, and lots of yummy food.

And... then we went to a put-put place.  USA Mini Golf.  The put-put course that takes you on a journey through classic America.  Let's just say it had some strange elements and was quite unlike my previous put-put experiences.  The venue was advertised as glow-in-the-dark.  We started our round of mini-golf fully lit, but the lights went off a little way into the game.  So I only captured a few priceless moments before the light went away... I apologize for not fully documenting the experience.

A Music Update

Friday night Charles and I went to see The Dirty Guv'nahs at the Art on the Rocks event at the Birmingham Museum of Art.  It was definitely the most unique venue we've been to yet.  Everything from cocktail dresses to tennis shoes.  Even so, the event was very chill, fun, and relaxing as opposed to some of the nearly vicious crowds I've encountered at various concerts.  Plus, the Dirty Guvs totally rocked.  They're such a complete band.  I was very impressed.

And while I'm on the topic of music, you might remember my good "friend" Steve...

But seriously, Steve Moakler is one of my very favorite artists, and his new album officially debuts a week from today!  I managed to get my hands on a copy a week early (told you we're friends), and I just can't stop playing it over and over and over.

Here's a video from his concert that I went to in February at Workplay.

Eat, Sleep, Read:  Recently, my life can be summed up by those three words. This video includes my new theme song (around the 2 minute and 30 second mark).
Always makes me matter how many times I've seen it. War Eagle.

Rush is over

Rush is over.  Thank goodness.

Now I have moved on to more important things.  Like decorating my room.

And recovering from a crazy week.

embrace the awkward
That's all.  I haven't been very exciting lately.

Daddy shaves on way to Auburn.  Multitasking for the win:

My room is halfway put together.  Let the year of fort building commence:

The "Snack Man" is spotted getting on 280 complete with pickled eggs in the bed.  Ew:
