A Tilt-a-'Whirl' of a Weekend

Monday, June 11, 2012

Here are a few words to sum up my weekend:: 'I rode the tilt-a-whirl and didn't throw up!'

Amazing! This girl's still got it. ;) I wasn't sure if I could handle the super sonic spinning beast in my mid 20's but I was wrong. I owned it- and I actually really enjoyed it.

The tilt-a-whirl was always my favorite carnival ride growing up. I could ride it again and again. I lived for that feeling when I was pinned to the back of the ride in g-force bliss.

Since Ben was in Georgia this weekend on business, I decided it was time for a girls night. One of my dearest friends Shante came over for a night and we really did 'girls night' right! We attended a local festival in town just long enough to conquer the tilt-a-whirl and then returned to my house to finish the night watching 'Made of Honor'- a new (old) favorite movie. I never saw it when it first came out but I love it now.

Ben returned home on Saturday evening and on Sunday we hauled a car full of beach bums to Lake Michigan for a day of swimming, exploring, and soaking up some sunshine. I regret to inform you that I took absolutely 'no' beach pictures, sorry. Hm. I don't know what's wrong with me, normally I'm the picture queen.

That just about sums up my weekend. I am working on a super fun project that you are going to LOVE. I am hoping to have it ready by the end of this week so I can showcase it on Friday.

By the way- have you signed up for The Bee's Knees current giveaway?? If not then you should probably do that right now. :) The prize is sweet and entering is a piece of cake. Click here for details.

Love you all. Thanks a TON for reading and following along. You guys are the best. See you on Wednesday!! 

This picture was captured mid-spin. Compliments of Shante. :) The faces say it all. Just look at me...


  1. So glad you didn't get sick on the ride; Shante' may have felt compelled to post a picture of that as well! :)

  2. Haha.... Yes, she loves snapping random pictures! ;) Thanks for the comment Cheryl!
