I just arrived back in town this morning and I’m 100% exhausted, but this weekend was one for the freakin’ books of awesome! Every second was absolutely wonderful. Nick and I enjoyed spending lots of quality time with his brother & sister-in-law as well as meeting some of their new friends in Gainseville!
Trey’s friend, Casey, invited us to a 4th of July party that turned out to be a blast. It was our first time meeting these friends of theirs and they were such a treat! We laughed the entire time, I felt completely comfortable around them and I look forward to hanging out whenever we go back to visit!
Kathryn and I learned 2 lessons on Friday
(1) Watermelon & Tortilla Chips are NOT delicious and they do NOT taste like a really great cereal.
(2) Big K.R.I.T is a famous rapper from Mississippi that clearly we should know… but do not.
A fairly intoxicated man told us that watermelon and tortilla chips were awesome together. We all gave it a try and although some people seemed to enjoy it okay – Kathryn and I were not so impressed.
Our suggestion is to enjoy your watermelon as watermelon and your tortilla chip with some salsa. Do not mix. The same guy (or it could have been a completely different guy!) learned that we were from Mississippi and asked us if we knew who Big K.R.I.T was – we did not. Apparently he’s a famous rapper from Mississippi and we should be ashamed to not know who that is. Clearly he doesn’t realize the extent of rap music that Kathryn and I listen to on a daily basis… which is none.
We spent the afternoon hanging around and playing some games. There was a mini-zipline and a ball bounce that the guys enjoyed!
I didn’t venture out on it, but those who did seemed to have a lot of fun! We did however venture out on the golf cart. These people had a ton of land to explore! We were treated to the most outrageous story during our golf cart ride about people getting stranded in the woods and having to do gross things to survive. Then I learned all about Outward Bound which is an outdoor education program that Sarah, one of the girls we met, had done a few years back. This girl was hilarious! Unfortunately, our golf cart ran out of battery and we had to get towed back to the house. While we waited for help, she showed us her survival skills by trying to climb a tree with flip-flops.
The rest of the evening was spent chit-chatting and taking pictures. It was a fun & relaxing 4th of July weekend!
There was one point in the day that was NOT so relaxing… we were walking out to see the guys do the zip-line and the bouncy ball, I was just chatting away with Laura when Kathryn & Sarah screamed because I almost walked right into a massive spider web with some of the scariest spiders I’d ever seen. Seriously, I think Florida takes the trophy for World’s Creepiest Spiders & Webs because I saw my fair share of those things!
I’m looking forward to my Disney re-cap this week because Nick and I could not have experienced a more perfectly planned day at Disney on Saturday!
- What did you do for the 4th? Share your re-cap post with me below!
- Do you see ridiculous spiders like this!? Is that not insane? That was not the only one I saw either!
- What are some crazy combinations you’ve tried because someone said it was good? What was the verdict?
