Augusta Weekend

Hello wonderful friends!

Happy Monday! I am back in TX after a delightful weekend away visiting my BFF since college days and celebrating a wedding of another friend. 
Last week was a super packed week including lots of cooking, dealing with a pulled muscle in my neck, a few sad attempts at a workout, packing for my trip, a special fall story time at school, picture days, and a few other events packed into 4 days!

I headed out to Augusta on Thursday night right after I finished work for the day.  I had the last flight out, so it was perfect timing with leaving work, heading home for a quick change of clothes, grabbing my luggage and the Hubs.  We headed to the airport and were there just a few min later.  Our new home is so much closer to the airport, which is AWESOME!
When I checked in for my flight there was a delay which would cause me to miss my connection.  The airline then bumped me to an earlier flight which had also been delayed but I would still make.  I flew through security and I was to my gate in no time. The first flight was pretty uneventful.  When I arrived in Atlanta I had about 30 min to get to my next gate.  As soon as I hustled over to my gate I heard the gate attendant make an announcement that our flight was going to be delayed.  It was supposed to leave at 10:30 but was delayed till 12:16 due to MIA pilots.  They had been scheduled to land at 8pm, but had not shown up, and this gate agent had not received word as to where they were.  Long story short, we boarded the flight at 12:30 and finally took off about 1:25am!
Needless to say it was a long night.  I arrived in Augusta right around 2, saw my friends and got my bag.  We drove to her place and I finally was able to get some real sleep around 3am.
The rest of the weekend was full of seeing old friends, eating delicious food, celebrating happy relationships, seeing a beautiful friend marry her love (sadly no pics), nature walks, brunch, meeting new friends and a fun swimming adventure!
I will let the pictures do the talking!

I loved walking around the ponds! We even saw an alligator!

Arrived home late last night and am ready to take on this week!  Thankfully the weather is MUCH cooler this week with lower humidity!  I can’t wait to see what adventures unfold this week!

I am linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin today for their Weekly Wrap! Stop by and/or join in the fun!


May you be filled with joy and health!

    Don’t you just love it when pilots are MIA? I wonder what they’re doing? LOL. I’m glad you had a great time with friends though.

    OK — since you saw an alligator, I assume you mean Augusta, Georgia? I was born and raised a GA girl. It looks like you had a fun weekend. Beautiful pics. Once, I was booked on a flight that was cancelled because the pilot refused to fly the plane…because it STANK. Someone had been very sick on the last flight in the previous night and nobody had cleaned it up for the next morning. Got to love airline travel. Thanks for linking, Esther!
