Well, this weekend I packed up my little car and made the long trek to the other side of the world to see Nick, Hannah and the boys. I refer to Mount Pleasant as a compound. When Nick decided to move there, I envisioned the town like the compound on the HBO show Big Love. I was a little off. Not much, though.
I stopped in Des Moines at Taco Casa on the way, 1, to break up the drive a little bit, and 2. because tacos, duh. I was listening to a new podcast my friend Katie told me about, where these two grown ass men are reading the Baby-sitters Club books and discussing them. It made me die laughing more than once, and made me very excited to re-read the series myself and blog about my book reviews.
Yep, I am starting a new blog about it. It can be found here.
Anyway - so I finally made it there just after 8pm, after a series of u-turns to finally find the right neighborhood (I swear my eyesight is falling apart again). I was so excited to see everyone, and immediately settled down for a game of memory with my two favorite Boone boys.
Saturday morning Nick and Chandler showed me around the town and Nick's new place of employment, Iowa Weselyn University. Then we had a pizza party for lunch (they have a BREADEAUX PIZZA in Mount Pleasant). I laid around for awhile while they all unpacked (what, I was on vacation, I didn't want to help) and then Nick and I packed up the yeti to head to Iowa City to see Thomas Rhett and Blake Shelton at Kinnick Stadium
I seriously hate the Iowa Hawkeyes. But I'm really glad they lent their stadium out for this concert. I didn't realize I was a Thomas Rhett fan until Saturday night - I need to get better about actually knowing who the artist is singing the songs I am rocking out to. Mr. Rhett also brought Ashton Kutcher out on stage, and he is even dreamier in person than on the television.
Blake Shelton was so amazing. I always liked him, but now I am obsessed. He's just so hilarious and hot and funny and handsome and I just wanted to spend some time licking him.
I'm so glad my first time at Kinnick Stadium was to see Thomas and Blake, and not the Hawkeyes. Because I HATE THE HAWKEYES (that's for you, Ryan, if you are reading this).
We got home kinda late (well, late for my granny ass - it was like 1230am) so I passed out and woke up the next morning to find all four Boone's just hanging out in the living room. I still hate hate hate that they live four hours away from me, but I am glad to now know where they live and what their house looks like. I still will not move there, so if anyone is placing bets on that, get ready to lose.
Sunday I left around noon, and started the long trek home. I stopped at Taco Casa on the way back, 1, to break up the drive a little bit, and 2. because tacos, duh.
