Best Night Ever!

Last night was arguably one of the greatest nights of my life. Myself and 3 friends went to see the one and only Justin Timblerlake concert. We were so pumped even though we were nosebleed and had to seat apart from each other (2 and 2). We had drinks and dinner before and headed to the arena. 

After getting to the 2nd floor and grabbing some beers, my phone rang. It was a friend that shall remain nameless and she told me to get down to the 1st floor, she had better tickets for us. 

We hurried down, expecting to be in the 100's instead of 200's. WE WERE 8th ROW!  Did you read that right...EIGHTH ROW!!!  

I think the 4 of us shook and screamed most of the concert, I'm still in shock. In case you were wondering, yes he is just as sexy in person, yes he sounds just as amazing live and yes he really dances the entire time. Homeboy started at 9pm, took 1 short break and went until midnight. 

I got both of his albums on iTunes when they came out and he did most of the new stuff, all his older hits and even threw in some MJ, Elvis and Bell Biv Devoe!

Small Group Mountain Trip

Last year our small group went on a mountain retreat to Maggie Valley. We had such a great time, we decided to do it again this year. 

This time around we picked Banner Elk and y'all, this house was ah-mazing!!  I'm still blown away with how little we paid for a 3 story, 5 BR, 3 1/2 bath house with a hot tub. Here are a few shots of this house...and yes that's our bedroom with its own fireplace (I was in love). 

We spent the first day unpacking, exploring, eating and hanging out around the campfire. The next day was our hiking day. We ended up near Blowing Rock on Rough Ridge Trail. It was a good pick...strenuous enough but not overkill. The views were gorgeous and the weather was cold!  We explored Blowing Rock after our hike and did some shopping, then went back to clean up and go to dinner. 

It was great to spend time and fellowship  with this wonderful group of people...I can't wait to do it again next year. However, I REALLY missed this munchkin! 

And she REALLY liked my boiled peanuts ;-)

2 Month Catch Up!

I'm not even going to apologize this time for being slack. I'm just going to unload a massive photo dump and catch up. I'm sure you've all been asking what the Killette Family has been up to since August, so here you go...

1.  We celebrated my birthday back in September. Sushi, World of Beer and amazing friends..couldn't have asked for more!

2.  Had fun times at our annual trip to Hillridge Farms!

3. Celebrated Halloween - adult style

4. Celebrated Halloween - family style. 

5. I ran my first 5K after not running in 4 yrs...ok I ran/walked, don't judge me. 

6. Spent most of my time with my favorite munchkin!

There you go.  I hit the highlights, I left a lot out, you're caught up for the most part :-). I'll be better, I promise.
