I feel like I have a lot of pictures/random stuff to update you on so that's going to be the theme of today's post! :)  

 

I've been doing a lot of beer tastings lately, and I LOVE it!! Seriously, so much fun :) Last weekend I did a tasting of a "Lemon Tree" (invented by Wegmans, haha) which is Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy mixed with Crispin hard cider (50/50 ratio) and it is literally the most delicious thing I have ever tasted.

 

 

Of course, I'm not allowed to try the beers while I'm doing tastings, but people were raving about the combo so much that I went out and bought the beers just so I could taste them!  I was not disappointed.. this is officially my new summer drink :) Seriously, try this combo!! (you can use any type of cider; Crispin is kinda expensive BUT it's less sweet than other hard ciders...next time I will probably get Angry Orchard or some other cheaper cider) Also the Summer Shandy is really good alone! (no I don't get paid to recommend this to you, {I wish} I just feel really strongly about the beers hahaha)

 

Last Friday we hit up a free concert downtown in our city and it was so much fun! We ended up spending a ridiculous fortune on beer ($6/beer x4, yikes) but it was a great time :) I attempted to take a selfie while Mike was lifting me in the air. Interesting perspective but at least it looks like I'm having a good time ;)

 

Another highlight of that night was that two little boys got up on stage with the band (we had a pretty ballin' seat, right?! so close to the band, haha) The little one on the left with his arm up was playing an imaginary guitar for literally 30+ minutes STRAIGHT. It was precious. At one point the lead singer got down on his knees next to the kid and played imaginary guitar along with him. hahaha. And the little guy on the right was walking around in a firefighter rain jacket, rain boots, and no pants. Maybe it was funnier in person?... we were dyinggg of laughter. So great.

 

Also, our apartment complex's pool opened last weekend! WOO! We spent a few hours there Sunday and a lot of hours there Monday. I kept myself slathered in SPF 30 and managed to not get a sunburn at all-- woo!! (and I even got a little bit of a tan!) I think we will be spending a lot of time there this summer. Also... #hotdoglegs

How will YOU save money this weekend?

Hmmm... well, I am working 4 (!!) beer tastings so that's going to help me make money... As for saving money, I want to spend lots of time at the pool reading, which is a totally free activity! YAY!
