Workin' for the Weekend

My hubby is a stay-at-home dad by day, wedding DJ by night. But he's so different than most wedding DJs, I actually LOVE to tag along with him when he DJs because he plays the best music. The motto on his business card says "No chicken dance. No macarena. No B*lls&^t" And it's true. And the coolest thing is that he still plays much of it right off the vinyl records.

This weekend we were asked to repay a favor from the chef at our own wedding and head "up north" do DJ his wedding. We took the opportunity to spend lots of time soaking up the sun and tooling around on the boats at the neighboring resort. It was unseasonably warm here -- like 20 degrees warmer than what I would expect. So warm, that we all were contemplating swimming in the lake. Pretty unheard of for September in Minnesota.

It was so nice to get away, but after a long, busy summer, I can honestly say I am really starting to look forward to not getting away. We've got one more cabin weekend away in early October, and then Halloween weekend we'll be spending time with family but otherwise I think we're tucking in for the winter and finding lots of at-home kinds of fun. A vacation from our vacation, so to speak!

I hope you had a happy weekend!

Ha! When we got married I had a heart to heart with our DJ and layed it out just like your husband has. No chicken dance, no macarena, no ceeeeelabrate good times come on!... thankfully he was down with that.

Sounds like a terrific weekend. Were you in my neck o' the woods?

Blake and KristenMary -- we had so much fun! I was exhausted, too. But there's always a smidgeon of energy left to look at the photos!!

Lisa -- in fact, we were! I thought of you as I passed through the area. Next time we'll have to arrange a meet up!
