Best! Staycation! Ever!

Y’all.  I haven’t been at work since June 28th and let me tell you, the 6 days I was away from the office were absolutely marvelous.

LG’s summer camp takes the week of July 4 off (weird…) and last year I scrambled around and found somewhere for her to go since I’d just started my job.  Well, this year I figured I’d take the week off and we’d head out of town.  I mean, lovely as Jackson may be, it’s not really a vacation destination.  Well, travel plans fell through and I found myself looking at 10 days of unscheduled time here in Jacktown and the surrounding areas.

So what are a girl and her favorite girl to do?  Well, I/she/we…

Put on tight jeans and saw After 7, El DeBarge and New Edition in concert. Had a ball!  Wave hey to my friend S 🙂








Ate a lot of ice cream. That day’s flavors were black walnut & Bing cherry. Yum!











Hung out in the pool and then Chick Fil A with a school buddy.








Had our official summer portrait drawn by the computer at Chuck E Cheese. Apparently neither of us completely followed the directions to “look here and smile.” Oops.









Bought the cutest little $2 Peruvian friendship bracelets.










Got baptized. Praise God!!










We had the best time and I wouldn’t have traded a day of our staycation for anything in the world (outside of Smoochy taking some time off and joining us…sigh).

What have y’all been up to??

    • I cannot stand that place unless it’s the middle of the week and empty – which it was!! Mama made it rain with $10 worth of tokens – ’twas awesome 🙂

    • I just bought the first batch of school supplies this weekend – she starts back on the 7th. I need to go through her closet and see what’s what too. Summer has flown by!

  1. Sounds like you all had a pretty full Staycation. Our 9 year old is with us for the Summer, so we have a full agenda. Too bad that we have yet to do anything on that agenda….. LOL

    • Ha! We didn’t do as much as I thought we would, but it was a nice mix of chilling, having fun, and cleaning up & out. Enjoy your time with her! {Hope I’m remembering correctly – if not, enjoy your time with him 🙂 }

  2. that all sounds awesome. Do you guys attend one of those mega churches?

    I was in ATL hanging out with MImi! ok. . . we only hung out once while i was there but still. My vacation was awesome! Now im back in cali and at work and hating every second of it aside from spending time with my honey.

    • Nope, we don’t attend a mega church – this isn’t even our home church. LG asked to be baptized at the church where she attended VBS (and a follow-up class) so that’s where she was baptized. Our church is large, but nowhere near a mega church.

      Glad you had a nice break! Work 😦
