Weekend Wrap-Up!!!

I totally blame my friend Courtney for getting me started on the Weekend Wrap-Up. ;)

As you all know from Friday's blog - Frankie had his first gig at R Bar in Denton on Friday night and it was a HUGE SUCCESS!!!! He did amazing, sounded incredible and really worked the stage and the crowd!! He sang several originals and a few covers, including the surprise he'd kept from me, "Lola" by The Kinks [one of my favorite songs], which we later joked made us think of "Yoda" the less-well-known spoof by Weird Al. Anyway, so many of our friends came out and I want to THANK YOU ALL!!! It meant so much to both of us!! Here are a few pics from the show. I'm such a proud big sister!!

He's just so cute!!!

Saturday, we got a late start, as we stayed out until 2am [!!!!!!!] which is SO out of character for us. When we finally rolled out of bed, we both had a hard time actually getting anything done. We pretty much laid around and watched TV most of the day. I fell asleep at like 2:30p and woke up 45 minutes later with a random burst of energy, so I ran a couple of quick errands. We also went grocery shopping around 8p...then came home and crashed. Haha. We are so old!!! OH!! And at the grocery store Ryan decided he'd tortured me enough with his nightly snoring and he bought some Breathe Right strips. Much to my surprise, they really seem to work!! YAY for not having to roll him over 10 times a night!!

Sunday, I woke up with a killer headache, thanks allergies, but once I kicked it, we did a good amount of packing and cleaning since we move in a few weeks! [Yikes!] We also did laundry, yay.

So now, it's Monday [BOOOO] and I am simply counting the minutes until 5p. We are both really tired...which is so lame, but are "schedules" got all messed up this weekend. But it was SO worth it. :) Anyway, Ryan leaves tomorrow morning for another week long business trip. He thinks I like the "alone" time when he's gone, and in 5 years I might, but right now I really don't like when he travels. Luckily, I have Chloe to keep me company. ;)



  1. Maybe I missed a post or something, but I didn't know you were moving again! Where are you moving?!

  2. I posted about it back in Feb. I think...we are moving to the Coppell area. Long story short, my Mom is having some financial problems and we are going to "rent" the master bedroom for a little while to help her out. While we do that, we will be able to live off my paycheck and save all of Ryan's to buy a house of our own. :) It feels weird moving in with my Mom as newlywed's but I don't want her to have to sell her house right now. Family first!! :)

  3. Rachel! How could I ever loathe you?1?!?!

  4. Wow Rachel. It sounds like a great weekend. The next time your brother is playing - you'll have to let us know ahead of time. (Now that I'm thinking about it - I think you did, and I'm just slow!) Eh, sorry! Okay, anyways, next time, maybe we'll come venture out and see your brother perform! :o)

  5. Aww, I got a shout-out! Woohoo!

    I'm definitely up for going to see Frankie at his next gig! That would be way fun.
