And Just Like That It's August

Friday
Most of Friday was spent doing final prep work for the family reunion.  Tables & tents were set up, lawn was mowed, the garage got a final once over, & rooms inside the house were cleaned.  That night my mama & I met my brother at the fair again for food.  I got elote for the first time ever, loved it, & a lengua taco.  Both were so good.

Saturday
Saturday was reunion day.  It was supposed to start at 11 but the first people started showing up at 9:45.  The reunion is a combination of two families.  Many years ago 2 siblings from one family married 2 siblings from another family.  Nearly everyone from that generation now however is no longer around.  I spent the entire time with some of my cousins, their kids, some uncles, & my dad.  As it is with every family get together we ever have there was not a shortage of food.  Around 6 pm everyone had finally left & despite not really doing much but sit around and talk, I was exhausted.  My brother stopped out for a bit after work & then headed to the fair but I was too tired to go anywhere.  A little before 9 I had to go to bed.

Sunday
Sunday I finally sat down & made a packing/shopping list for WeFest (I only leave tomorrow.)  I have never been so unprepared for WeFest before.  I at the very least have everything purchased by now if not also packed.  My nails had started to grow out & chip at the bottom so I also decided to repaint my nails.  I figured I'd need to if my nails stood any chance of growing while at WeFest.  I wanted a bright color & this pink is one of my favorites.  The color is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Peachy Breeze.  That evening we went to the county fair one last time.  Since the fair ends on Sunday, pretty much everything was either already shut down or being shut down.  I had wanted a corn dog since I hadn't had one yet this year but wound up with a potato instead.  I also finally got to check out the animals.  Things I want really bad: 1. Cow 2. Horse 3. Goat #GiveMeAllTheAnimals #IShouldJustStartAFarm

Today I'll be finishing up my shopping & packing everything up so that I can leave early tomorrow morning to meet up with some of my friends so we can head off to WeFest.  Since I won't be back until Sunday I'll have WeFest related posts each day.  I'll do my best to reply to comments & catch up on your posts when I get back Sunday & want to do nothing more than lie down on the couch.  Happy Monday y'all & have a great week!
