Biker Weekending....

Monday, June 30, 2014

Do you ever look back over your weekend and think damn I missed so many photo ops to be a good blogger? Well that's what I'm thinking today because if you look at my photos you can hardly tell that I spent Friday night cooking up a storm and Saturday night with several thousand bikers. I missed some really good photo ops but in all honesty it was so hot at the biker thing and I was so sweaty that every time I picked up my phone it was in danger of slipping from my hand. 

But getting back to my weekend... Friday night I did something I never do. I went straight to the gym, or in this case the barre, from work. I brought my clothes, changed at the office and was in a class by 5:30 on Friday night. Out by 6:30, to the grocery store to shop for tennis catering food, and home with wine by 8:00. My poor doggie was wondering if I fell off the face of the earth I'm sure, but he happily took his perch on the couch and stared at me for the rest of the night. 

Oh and another thing that happened  over the weekend... I keep noticing my shoulders looking a little different and my arms a little bit too at certain angles. I never wear sleeves in the summer when I am not working, I can't stand anything on my arms when it's hot. Lately I catch myself in the mirror and every once in awhile I feel like a see a difference.  Now, I don't have the best arms but I really don't care, I'd rather be comfortable and sleeveless anyway. But I think they are starting to look better, just a little. Sorry for the cleavage shot... 

So yes, I had another really busy weekend and if you follow me on IG or we are snap chat friends you may or may not know that. I spent half the day on Saturday at the Thunder on the Parkway Music Festival and Motorcycle Rally here at Lake Lanier. I saw a lot of really interesting folks and had a blast. My ex-sister in law and I went together... yes we are still friends and always will be... and laughed and drank beer all day. Bikers really are a pretty cool crowd. The concert was general admission and although there was a lot of drinking and partying going on the crowd was great. Very low key and everyone just having fun! No fighting or drama.
Got to see some really great bands too. The Psycho Devilles were awesome if you like Rockabilly/Psychobilly/Honkytonk.  Anyone that sets their instruments on fire and keeps playing makes for a good live show.

The Micheal Allman Band  was also really good. He is the eldest son of Greg Allman and honestly I thought he was one of the brothers... he looked pretty "seasoned" but he sounded great... like his Daddy who I actually saw last summer.

But the big event for the night was definitely Blackberry Smoke. They rocked our faces off and no one left till the last note was sung and the lights came up. They definitely have a huge cult following and if you like the southern rock genre you must go see them when they are near you!!! You will not be disappointed. My goal was to get there one way or another because they will be touring the US and Europe for the rest of the year and this was their last stop at home in Georgia! Go check em out and give them a listen. I highly recommend "Good One Comin On", "Six Ways to Sunday" and "Leave a Scar" to add to your summer jam play list.

Just trust me... it's good stuff. And yes, I really was that close and it was awesome! Fangirl here.

Sunday just brought more rain but I did manage to get a little tennis in, in between storms and squeegee-ing the courts. Better rain at tennis than on the biker music fest... that would have been no bueno!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
