Weekending: Country Music Steals My Heart

Weekends are made for memories and this past weekend I made some great ones! For those that follow my blog and haven't known me for awhile let me explain a little about my past. I am from a small town just south of Tulsa, Oklahoma. When I moved off to college I moved to Edmond, Oklahoma which is just outside of Oklahoma City. After graduating college I got a full time job working in the marketing department for a local bank in Edmond. I continued to live in Edmond with my best friend and roommate, Melissa and puppy Bleeker. Honestly, hands down I think Edmond is the best city in Oklahoma. In fact, it is rated the number one best city to live here. Anyways, when I got married it was no secret that I was going to have to move back home outside of Tulsa and leave Edmond and all that it was for me. My husband owns two of his own  businesses and I at the time worked for the Edmond Chamber of Commerce so it was definitely easier to switch locations than it was for him. Plus, he doesn't share the same love for Edmond as I have so it wasn't even an option.
With that being said, I absolutely love every chance I get to go back to Edmond and see everyone and just be there.
This weekend was the OKC Fest which was a country music festival in downtown OKC. Saturday morning I loaded up and headed to OKC to have a fun girls day. My puppy that I had when I lived in Edmond now lives full time with my friend Melissa so it is always so wonderful to see my baby too.
Bleeker practicing doggie yoga, look at that form! ;)
This girl loves country music and even more loves country music live so I was so excited to be with great friends at the festival. Artists that performed were Lucas Hoge, Kix Brooks, Randy Rogers Band, Scotty McCreery and Lady Antebellum. There were a ton of people there and it was so fun!
I went with my sister in law Randi and best friend Melissa and her boyfriend and met up with some other friends while there. And props to my sister in law that is six months pregnant for being at an outdoor concert for nine hours and totally ok with it, trooper she is!
 My friend Jessica lives down close to Oklahoma City so it was great to see her as well as many other friends.
There was lots of really good food that I shouldn't have taken part in but did and only half regret it. We all had so much fun and I love that OKC put it together for the city. I look forward to it hopefully being an annual event and I will go again! 

I stayed the night with Melissa so Sunday after church we met up with our old roommate and close friend Becca for lunch. It was great to catch up and see her. One place I can't not stop at while in town is Café 7, if you are close to Oklahoma City people go eat there!
It was such a great weekend and I am so glad I got to share it with great people. As always, looking forward to my next visit to Edmond hopefully real soon! As of now, I am off work this week and kicked it off by detoxing from this weekend at the gym this morning.
 Today, I am linking up with B Loved Boston for her Weekending link up.
