Scenes from my (delayed) weekend

I spent most of the actual weekend lounging on the couch still dealing with some lingering sickness, but was feeling pretty good in time for our delayed weekend plans.

My husband and I left work mid-day on Monday to head to Memphis for a Justin Timberlake concert. We aren’t big concert goers – I can hardly remember the last one I went to – so this was a pretty rare occurrence for us. It had also been quite a while since we were able to take a night away for total relaxation. I’m cheap, but we got a great deal on hotwire for a room at the Peabody – not my first choice for a downtown hotel, but in walking distance of the arena and always nice.

The concert was good. He didn’t have a blow-me-away stage show, but we enjoyed it. We made it back to the hotel around 1am and ordered room service (completely blowing the deal I got on the room).
