The Third Weekend in May


I don’t know about where you live, but in the Baltimore area, the third weekend in May is by far the most eventful weekend of the year.  Preakness, WMZQfest, Wine in the Woods, Beer Bacon BBQ festival... you name it, every big social event, they’re all on the same day.  I’ve spent most of my adult life cursing this coincidence because most of things one wants to do in Maryland is all happening at the same time, and thus you begin weighing the opportunity costs like you’d never do regularly.  

But guess what?  This weekend I did NONE of these!  Nope, not a one!  That’s because we had so many great personal commitments that there was no time for public festivity. 

My fiance is a high school baseball coach and this weekend they won their regional championship game!  This is the game they have gone to and lost the past 2 years and notoriously throughout program history, so even though they expected to win it, everyone I was understandably nervous and keeping fingers crossed.  Anyway, they won the game and are now two games away from a state championship!  They play next on Tuesday evening and you better believe I’ll be there in full Gator gear!  Follow along on IG for game day updates!

Mine is the coach on the far right!

Showing my Gator spirit! 

After the game we had to hull butt to get to a wedding that we were already late to.  We knew we’d be missing a significant amount due to the game, but luckily we got there just as they announced the Mr. and Mrs. into the reception.  Only missed the ceremony after all!  The wedding was held on a farm and it was cool because there were many different locations and barns that we rotated between throughout the night, so it kept things interesting.  My fiance was totally mesmerized by the farm atmosphere which was pretty enlightening for me since I grew up in a “hick town” as we say and am 100% accustomed to such locations, but it was funny to see how in awe he was.  Gosh, if I knew he’d be this into it, I would’ve taken him to many more hometown parties when we started dating!  I have to say the highlight of the night though was the bride herself and her gorgeous gown.  I probably looked like a total creeper eyeing her up and down, but the dress had these sparkles throughout the entire thing and I just couldn’t stop staring at them!  So pretty!  

Gator koozies!  Oh yea!  



Sunday was warm enough to lay out and get some sun by the pond (aka pool that is green, unopened, and inhabited by frogs) followed by a lil gym sesh.  After all, swimsuit season is coming and my bachelorette party is less than a month away! Time to take care of this pasty white skin situation I’ve got goin’ on! 


Have a great Monday guys!  So much easier when the windows are down and the sun is shining right?!

    1. haha I never win those things either. But I figure my chances are pretty good compared to say, the lottery, so I'll keep playing.

  7. I really want to be a tourist. I don't go into the city nearly enough but there is so much to do there I could explore something new every time I go in there. Hope you had a great time!
