Grown-Up Fun

This past weekend I had my first kid-free weekend since Handley was born almost 6 years ago.  I missed them all, but it was SUCH a fun weekend.

Friday morning Robby and I left bright and early to head to Augusta for the Masters.  Robby has been a few times, but this was my first experience there and it was a great day.  The weather was warm, the course was gorgeous and we even got to see some of the big players (like the winner, Adam Scott, and the most famous one there, Tiger Woods).  I loved walking around, seeing the golf, enjoying the traditional Master's food/drinks and getting a few souvenirs.  Cameras and phones are not allowed so I didn't get any pictures.

We left there around dinner time and made our way to Athens to meet up with our friends who were already there.  We visited all of our old watering holes and totally re-lived our college days.  And, it was AWESOME!!!  We seriously had the best time dancing the night away.  We had tons of laughs and knew that amongst the college kids we looked ancient, but we didn't care one bit.  Before we knew it they were announcing last call and I couldn't believe that 4 hours had passed in a flash.  We left there and made a stop by the Arch before heading back to the hotel (and a quick pit stop at Steak-n-shake at 2:30 AM).

Needless to say the next day we were all moving a little slower, but that didn't stop us from having fun for the REAL reason we were in Athens.  UGA was allowing a concert to be held in their football stadium, Sanford Stadium, for the first time ever. This was a REALLY big deal to the University and to the alumni, football fans, and students.  The girls started the day by doing a little shopping downtown, then met up with a few of the guys for lunch.  Then we all got ready and went to a VIP pre-party event Brad got us tickets for and to the stadium for the concert from there.  If you are a country music fan it was a great line-up. Thomas Rhett, Jake Owen, Luke Bryan, and Jason Aldean.  It was so neat to see the stage and seats set up on the field and ALL of the people that filled the stadium.  The two headliners, Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean put on a really great show and there were even guest appearances by Kelly Clarkson and Ludacris, where the entire stadium went crazy.

We ended the night by walking up through campus on our way back to the car.  It was an absolutely perfect weekend spent with some of our best friends!
