Fitz & the Tantrums (and other weekend fun)

Quiet weekends are few and far between in our household, but we pulled it off this weekend.  Friday night, we had an awesome dinner on our patio.  FINALLY.  We walked the dogs to my parents to deliver a Father's Day gift and have a glass of wine.  Finished off the night with a little TV and some Italian ice.

I had to work Saturday for the majority of the day.  About ten minutes before leaving, the sky opened up and started to downpour.  So much for my sunshine and patio, we decided to meet my friend, Emma, for a margarita at La Cucaracha - mostly because she was obsessed with the fact that a restaurant was called the cockroach.  We finished off the night playing jeopardy on the Playstation.

Sunday was the highlight of my weekend.  We chatted with fathers and grandfathers in the morning and then enjoyed a lazy day around the house.  The highlight of the weekend came in the evening.  We got tickets from our friend, Brian, to see Fitz and the Tantrums.  He couldn't use them because he had to leave town for work.  I love the band, but Justin hadn't heard much of them.  The first opener was pretty good, the second band was a little boring and we were all a little tired.  Once they took the stage, it all changed.  They put on a show.  We danced and sang.  We ran into Caroline and Keiko.  It was SUCH A GOOD SHOW.  I recommend them to everyone.  They are opening for Bruno Mars later this summer and are labeled as "soul revival" and they are just a good time.

Let me know what you think.  Also, I'm guest posting today on Samantha's blog on the lessons I've learned from country music.  Go check her out and wish her a happy vacation.  Happy Monday!!

Linking up with Sami for weekend shenanigans.

  2. I need someone to put a quarter in me today.. SO tired! It was SUCH an amazing show! I am glad we danced and sang. And... Brady and I snuck out to get Burrito Loco. :)

  3. La Cucaracha sounds legit! And I'll have to check out that band since I'm seeing Bruno this summer! Headed to check out the guest post now!

  4. Never heard of Fitz and the Tantrums. Will have to check them out!

    Also, I laughed out loud at la cucaracha. Do you remember the la cucaracha song?

  5. Sounds like such a fun weekend! That concert sounds great! How fun to run into friends! :)

  6. Haha, this is so funny...La Cucaracha is one of my favorite restaurants and I used to live across the street from it. On Saturday Mark texted me (I was at work) and asked what the name of it was because he was with his dad and his dad didn't think it could actually be named that! Weird!

  7. you are a MN girl? I am too! I love meeting MN bloggers, even though I live in Florida reading all MN bloggers post is like a taste of home! :)


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
