The Good, The Bad, and What's Coming

This week I'm saying TGIF, with major emphasis on the G.  Ever have one of those weeks that flies by because you're so busy but feels like it's dragging on at the same time?  Yeah, that was my life.  Here's a little recap of what's been happening in the world of Amanda.

The Good:

Last weekend, I did every fall thing you can think of, from apple picking, to a corn maze, to visiting a pumpkin patch.  The weather was absolutely perfect, and it was a great day spent with people I love.  This is why fall is my favorite season of all.  And I'm thrilled to see that we are actually having a good amount of fall weather.  Living in the Ohio River Valley, the weather is about as predictable as who will win the Derby, so I've been taking full advantage of sweater weather.

This week was also my sister's birthday!  I can't believe she's 23.  It certainly makes me feel ancient, but it's also been nice because I think we've gotten a lot closer now that we are both out of college and in the real world.  We get to be only two years apart for a couple of weeks, and then it'll be time for my birthday.  I'm not sure how I feel about that, since I'll be over the mid-20s hump at this point.  Let's be honest, 26 means you're practically 30.

The Bad:

The crowds at said farm where we did all the fall things were 


.  Like, I knew it would be busy because it was a gorgeous day, but I think all of Louisville decided to make the trek to Indiana along with us because you could hardly move once you got over there.  We wanted to eat at the restaurant but the wait time was over two hours.  We put our name down anyway and tried to do more fall things, but I was beyond hangry at that point.  So what did we do?  Forgo the farm restaurant for Bdubs.  I'm not even mad, though.

What's Coming:

After a couple of less-than-social weekends, I've actually got quite a full schedule for this weekend and into next week.  Saturday, Chelcey and I are going out to take photos and indulge in our very last cup of Ce Fiore froyo.  Ever.  We just found out that our favorite spot is closing.  Queue the crying emojis.  That night, I plan on hanging out with some other friends and checking out a new restaurant for dinner.  On Sunday, I've got a family get-together for chili and brats, which should be a lot of fun since I haven't seen some of them in a while.

And then there's next week.  I'm going to three different concerts in the span of less than two weeks.  I'm a huge fan of live music and I haven't seen this many shows back-to-back in a while, so I'm really looking forward to it!  One of those just happens to be Paul McCartney, and I am really, really excited to see such a legend.  Plus, you can't really beat the classics like that (if you've been following my blog for a while, you know I'm a huge Bruce Springsteen fan too!).  I'm sure I'll have pictures to share so be sure to follow me on Instagram!

How's your week been?  Do you have a busy weekend or do you plan on getting in a little rest and relaxation?  I'd love to hear all about it in the comments!
