May Recap - What's New With You Link Up

Time for another link up with Gretch and I! We hope you will link up with us and let us know what's going on in your world! All that we ask is that you link back to us somewhere in your post. As for me, I'll be doing another monthly recap - May was a doozy, but then also relaxing somehow. We had a lot going on, so I really made sure to relax and do nothing in between all of the crazy.

What's New With You

May kicks off with a bang here in KY! May brings Derby, and Oaks which is what we attended this year.


We went out to brunch for mothers day with my in laws. We tried a new place and the food was okay - but the hot choccie stole the show for sure.


We were supposed to have a girls night (dinner and drinks) the following week, but it ended up just being 2 of us because one went out of town and the other had a very sick baby. We still had a great time, of course, how can you not with pizza, cocktails and brownies?


Then the next weekend, we had a bachelorette party. Which turned into all sorts of crazy and insane that I can't even begin to explain because it's just weird. It wasn't normal bachelorette party crazy either, it was just plain weird. It was a good night until then though.


Finally after all that, what I had been waiting all month 6 years for - Kenny Chesney. Fun story: I bought tickets (and flights/hotel) for the CMA fest back in 2010 before they announced the 'guests' thinking of course Kenny Chesney would be there. Because he was always there. Guess who took his first summer off in like 75 years? Okay it wasn't that long, but still. After that, I figured well heck now I live in the same country, it will be much easier to see him (I don't think he's ever been to Oz?).... but every time he came to KY, I was out of town or otherwise engaged. Blah. Finally I was like screw this, I'm going. And I went. And it was amazing. Absolutely amazing. My fitbit thought I was playing sport, that's how into it I was, and I am not ashamed even a little.


Of course, we have some cat pictures... I'm honestly surprised I have anything on my phone other than cat pictures. It's a lot of the same - cats on the floor, Millie on the scale, cats on the bed, cats looking out at the window, etc etc.


Naturally, some food pictures and subsequent workout snaps.. I only exercise so I can live longer and eat more food.


And miscellaneous stuff that I want to share.

KC is never impressed with me wanting to take snapchats with a new filter / KC being the redneck I always knew was in there / a 'just because gift' from Kari

We ended the month with a Memorial Day BBQ where I had my first s'more (made by a child).


I tell you what - I am looking forward to our cruise (about 2 weeks away!) for all the relaxing, eating and drinking I am going to do. Oh, and of course I will pay attention to my surroundings and new places etc etc. But mainly food, drink and being lazy.

If you'd like to link up with us, please do so below!




So what's new with you?

  1. Whoa, I don't think I've ever been the first person to comment on one of your posts! Haha. (This is what happens when you have trouble sleeping, I guess.)

    It looks like May was an awesome month! I'm glad you finally got to see Kenny Chesney ... It's always such a great feeling to see a musician live that you've been dying to see forever!

    I can't believe you'd never tried a s'more before! I had one recently as well (definitely not my first, though!), and I'd forgotten how delicious they are. Mmmm.

    I need to get back into a workout groove. I was doing pretty well, but then I just sort of fell off the wagon. I'm planning to try to do something active every day this month, but we'll see how that goes. Haha.

  2. Yay for finally seeing Kenny Chesney! Lady, you looked SMOKING at the bachelorette party-that dress is amazing on you (also, I'm super curious about the weirdness)! That hot chocolate looks amazing, and so do those tacos!

    ReplyDelete
  3. So, you know I like music and concerts. But, guess what...I couldn't name one song that Kenny Chesney sings. hahahaha! And, I know he is HUGELY popular.

    That lacy outfit at the bachelorette party?!? Hello, hottie!!!

    ReplyDelete
  4. That chocolate really does look amazing! More so because I'm currently counting calories on My Fitness Pal again and if I actually want three meals a day I definitely can't include hot chocolate ;-) I clearly need to get into working out. But ugh... I hate exercising even more than I love hot chocolate and cheese!

    ReplyDelete
  5. That smore looks amazing!!! I'm also super curious about this Bach party...

    ReplyDelete
  6. S'mores are seriously one of the things I miss most about North America. I know I can make them in Australia, but they aren't the same without GIANT marshmallows haha. Have a great June :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I, too, only exercise so I can eat more food. It's a good sign when your Fitbit thinks you're exercising - it did that for me at The Cat Empire concert! Turns out jumping around like a mad person burns a surprising amount of calories. I think I should go see live music more often.
    Also that lace dress/romper? is so cool. You look great in it! Loving all the cat pictures as ever, and I've never had a smore either. Are they as good as they look?

    ReplyDelete
  8. All that food looks so good! I want some fresh pizza. Hahaha I have about a million cat pictures on my phone, too. I take more of the same picture of them than I do myself, trying to get the right angle. Is that chickpeas I see? I had some coconut curry the other day and it made me want more curry.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I can't even imagine the kind of dancing that would be going on if I saw Kenny. Every country concert I've been to I dance like a fool! And yay cruise!!! So close! Stay away from the railings!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Wow, you had a pretty busy month! I love country music--I bet that Kenny Chesney concert was awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Love the life lately! Good for you for finally seeing Kenny live! No one ever wants to do the Snapchat filters with me--not even the little girls I nanny for. I wanted s'mores in MExico and they had no idea what I was talking about. I figured out thanks to Google!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. You are seriously making me crave s'mores, lol. I love all of your outfits in this post!! You must be SO excited for the cruise. And yay for finally hearing Kenny Chesney!!! Sounds like a great month :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Your *first* s'more? Insane! I make a meal of s'mores in the summer.

    Kenny Chesney kind of drives me nuts but that concert does look like fun. I really like your friend's outfit lol.

    And I'm shocked that there's anything but dog pics on my phone.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You did have a busy month! Glad you finally got to see Kenny. He does put on an awesome show, doesn't he? He's really quite the entertainer. What did you think of the s'more?

    ReplyDelete
  15. LOL @ the first gym photo. That would totally be MFD's face too if I had him take the same photo.

    I'm not a huge s'mores fan, but they hit the spot every once in a while.

    The picture of you and your BFF in front of the tour bus is a framer!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I was so jealous when I saw on Snapchat that you were at a Kenny Chesney concert! Was it everything that you hoped for and more? I've always wanted to see him live. I want to hear more about the bachelorette craziness - that's why we rarely go out anymore because something downright strange just always happens. Glad you're doing well, friend!

    ReplyDelete
  17. You had soooo much fun stuff this month! You and your friends are so dang pretty. You probably get a lot of people stopping and staring at you all anywhere you go, which probably caused the Bachelorette Party drama...am I right?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Loooove your outfit at the bachelorette party! I can only imagine (or maybe I can't? haha) the weirdness! The Kenny Chesney concert sounds like it was so much fun-- so cool you were finally able to see him! Love all of the cat pictures, workout pics, and of course food pics! And hoooray for your first s'more! I can probably eat an entire bag of toasted marshmallows-- it's bad! One year I kept making them in the oven because I was that desperate, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I always wanted to go to a Derby/horse racing event- alot of my friend go to The Preakness but it's still on my to do list. Welcome to the wonderful world of smores :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Dang, girl! You were super busy in May! But I think my most favorite thing about this is that you made into a college football stadium... even if it was for a concert :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can we talk about how freaking hot you look in that black lace outfit?! LOVE IT! And sounds like you definitely had a busy May! I'm curious to hear what made the bachelorette party so weird haha! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm seeing Kenny here in Pittsburgh 4th of july weekend!! It will be my 3rd time seeing him, he's amazing live, isn't he?! I can't wait!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Of course I love all the kitty pictures! Love the one of the three of them siting at the door. Ha! My cats do that all the time--closed doors are just not allowed! I'm not a Kenny (or country) fan BUT my favorite musicians right now are from Australia! I've been listening to Courtney Barnett nonstop. Love her album so much! Also listening to King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard, which is a bit wacky. :) Thanks for hosting the linkup!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You had such a busy May! I still think that you looked so pretty for Oaks, and I loved your dress for the bachelorette party! I can't believe that you'd never had a smore before, but hopefully your life is changed for the better now! And we totally have the same thought process on working out, I work out so I can eat all the amazing foods!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've never been to a country concert, but I would LOVE to see Kenny Chesney! All the country concerts around here seem way more about tailgating & getting trashed than enjoying the show. Which, I want to have a drink or two, but not be sloppy.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Fun!! S'mores are one of my favorite summer things. I almost had a S'mores bar at my wedding. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOVE that tank with all the male characters from Jane Austen novels. So cute! :) Glad you had a fabulous May.

    PS. I'm jealous of your cruise. Like MEGA jealous.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Girl, looks like you had a great month! I can't wait to live vicariously through your cruise. And now I need a s'more!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I need to start working out so I can eat more too, because right now - I just eat. :) So glad you finally got to see Kenny Chesney. I'm not a country music lover but I've heard great things about his concerts. Glad it lived up to expectations. And cat pictures. Always my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Kenny Chesney is SO GOOD in concert!! I've seen him 3 times and he never disappoints. Glad you had fun! And did you enjoy your first s'more?! Now I'm craving one lol

    ReplyDelete
  31. I bet the Kenny Chesney concert was amazing! Looks like a lot of fun. Love your dress for the Derby!

    ReplyDelete
  32. S'mores are the best. I'm so happy you finally got one! The cat lady snapchat filter was my favorite. Also, your blue lace romper is the outfit my dreams are made of but I'm neither cool enough nor tiny enough to pull it off. You look great!

    ReplyDelete
  33. So much fun goings-on! Where are you cruising to???
    Your kitties are so fluffy and adorable. My next pet I've decided will be a cat to be called Pemberley <--Nerd. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love your outfit from the bachelorette party- it's super cute! I'm also a big fan of your workout outfits!

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is seriously the most beautiful smore I've ever seen. I want one like right now... and some of that pizza haha. And I bet Kenny Chesney would be amazing in concert! Country concerts are my absolute favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Give me that hot chocolate, tacos, and that brownie and that smores please!!!! Cant believe you never had a smore before?!?! I could just sit and eat toasted marshmallows all day long. And look at your in that blue lace dress you wore the the bachelorette party! Drop dead gorgeous!!!!!!!! I love Kenny Chesney and your hair looked so pretty that day! I bet you are totally excited for your cruise! Already know what you are packing?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Fun month! I honestly can't remember much about my month -- it flew by. End of school activities, basically no running, ate too much, and that's about it for me. Impressive s'more! I'm not a fan of marshmallows so my s'mores are graham cracker/chocolate sandwiches.

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a super fun-filled month! I love all of the cat pictures haha

    ReplyDelete
  39. I phone is filled with cat and food pictures too! The important things in life, right??

  40. Sounds like you had a great month! I had a friend that was supposed to go to the Kenny concert, but said the traffic was so bad they couldn't get in...Glad you had a great time though! He's on my bucket list of concerts!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow, you had such a fun month! I can't believe Kenny took off! We were wanting to go to CMA fest too, but I don't think we'll make it this year. I'm counting on next year though! Lol, the bachelorette party just got weird- too funny. Love all the animal selfies!

  42. Sounds like a pretty awesome May! I'm über curious though, what made the bachelorette so awkward/weird at the end?? Also, still can't believe you've never had a s'more! Did you love it at least!?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your first s'more! You have really been missing out! It's not summer without a s'more for me.

I wish some stories could be posted online. Love all the cat pics and working out pics + food. What life is really all about.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oooh awesome!! I'm not a country music fan most of the time, but I definitely know what it's like for waiting for someone or getting to go to a concert that you've been wanting to! So glad you got to see him live! Especially if you think his tractor's sexy. :P Sorry, had to. Intrigued by this weird bachelorette party.. lol. And damn that brownie looks good. I did not do the best job at working out in May... but it wasn't non existent... hehe Hoping to do even better in June. :) Those cat pics are the best. I particularly like the snapchat filter one that has filter cats in it! LOL XO - Alexandra

  54. FIRST: I NEED to know how you felt about the s'more. This is important.
    Also I want that hot chocolate. And the pizza. And the brownie. And the drinks.
    And your hair/makeup/romper for the bachelorette party are all perfection. I never knew I needed a lace long-sleeved romper, but I do, I really really do.

    ReplyDelete
  55. All of the food looks amazing! Where did you guys go to brunch? We're always up for new brunch places in the area... You look so great in all of the pics, girl! What a fun month you had!

    ReplyDelete
  60. So what did you think of your first smore?? You have me craving one. When I get back to MN it's going to happen. May looks like it was a really busy but really fun month for you. I'm glad that you finally got to see Kenny Chesney! I'm sitting here trying to remember if I've ever seen him... part of me says if I had I'd remember but another part says I've seen so many it's possible...

    ReplyDelete

    Meanwhile I'm sitting here wondering what I actually did, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Gosh can I just live vicariously through you?! So much fun in May!!! Kenny puts on such an amazing show! For 8 years straight I would buy tickets and organize a bus for a big group of friends. It was SO much fun! Remi loves the pictures of your cats it just cracks me up how she reacts I wish I could record it and send it to you. She's such an animal lover. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hahaha All the cat photos! I love it. Your cats are actually entertaining on snapchat. Always cracking me up.

    You in that hat is just hilariously cute. I don't have words to explain it. Can we bring back fancy hats, please?

    Glad you finally got to see Kenny!

  69. May was quite a fun month for you. I am not even a fan of smores but that one you had looks really good. Did you like it? Ok, I'm deathly allergic to cats but I'm so in love with Millie. She is so adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Looks like an awesome month for you!! And I'm glad you finally got to try a s'more! Some people like Reese's cups in theirs instead of the hershey bar, but I'm a purist, so I prefer the bar. So jealous you're going on a cruise! Can't wait to hear all about it.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Such a fun month!! Kenny Chesney is one of my favorites and always puts in such an awesome show!! I'm glad you got to see him :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. What did you think of your first s'more?! And can I be nosy and ask about the bachelorette party? My phone is mostly puppy photos (or it was - now I'll have to start over and take new ones).

    ReplyDelete
  77. I so love your Oaks dress! I was going to ask about how you liked the s'mores and why the bach party was weird too. So happy you (finally) got to see Kenny Chesney in concert- yay! My phone has mostly food pics... only the important things here lol! Ooooh yay for vacation cruises- where are you headed?

  78. Yay for finally seeing Kenny! That's how I felt when I saw Backstreet Boys a couple of years ago!!
