Weekend Recap - Indianapolis.

Well, I'm back in Tampa - at least until Friday.  We had a 'hurricane day' yesterday from work which graciously allowed me to play catch up from being gone this weekend.  So my house is put back together, my laundry is done, and I'm feeling excited about a busy week and another weekend away!

This weekend in Indianapolis was amazing.  It really couldn't have worked out any more perfectly.  We flew in Friday morning to set up for our filming on Saturday and we arrived in time to catch Dad before he departed for Washington DC.

It was so great for our team to get to see him and we all got to wish him luck before his road game.

Friday night after dinner with our crew I met up with Sean at our spot, the Fox and the Hound and got to catch up face to face instead of our usual phone chats, which was great!

I woke up early Saturday morning to have coffee with my sweet friend Jon who was willing to get up early on a Saturday to meet me. I loved catching up with him and hearing what's new in his life in person, again, instead of our usual phone chats.

Friday and Saturday were a good combo of work and a little play...

Saturday was our filming for work and my besties came out to volunteer.

The recording went great but man was it hot in there.  Afterwards Sean, Candy, Josh, and I ate at my favorite Indiana restaurant - Stone Creek Grill.

We came back and lazed around the house watching the Colts game on Tivo before all hitting the sack pretty early.

Sunday morning I got to spend an hour or so with just my Dad and I.  We made coffee and sat and caught up on life. With neither sister home, my Mom out of town, and my best friend and her husband still asleep it was a great time for the two of us to just talk.  It was such a sweet time and I'm so grateful we were able to carve that out of a busy weekend of work on the road for both of us.

Afterwards we were able to grab breakfast with Candy and Josh before Dad had to be back at the office, the Schulze's had to get to their plans, and I packed up for my return to Tampa.  It was such a special morning for me with people I adore and a great ending to an incredible weekend.

I made it back to Tampa before any storms hit - so thank you to each of you who expressed concern for me.  I'm still here and so is my house!  We actually got a hurricane day from work yesterday and so I was able to catch up but we didn't actually get a hurricane, which was even better!  I'm about to head into the office now to start a short week before another weekend on the road.

That sounds like such fun! It's definitely important and special to get to hang with the ones you love... especially if it includes a little 1-1 time!

I'm so glad you got some QT in with your dad and Candy!

Sounds fun. I love seeing friends and family. What is your job? Glad the storm didn't hit Tampa too hard.
