A Peek Into June 2016

Hey hey!

So, while I have some down time for a little bit thanks to this Mono, I thought I’d catch y’all up on the other things I did or have been doing this month. There’s not too much, but there is some, so take a look below.

June 3: Bret Michaels, FireHouse, Warrant, and Dokken concert. Obviously, I listen to WAY more country music than I do rock, but I have been raised around this music to an extent, so the concert was still lots of fun and enjoyable. It was held at Stir Cove, which is in Council Bluffs, behind Harrah’s Hotel & Casino. There was a little bit of a rain delay, but once the storm passed through, it was all good and we were ready to roll!

All the bands were good, but Bret Michaels was amazing! He is a crazy good entertainer and definitely knows how to put on a show! It was so cool to be that close to the stage {the photos below in the collage, are “no zoom” photos. at all. they show just how close we were to Bret}, with that many people who just straight up love good music!

June 4: June 4th was a Saturday night, so y’all know that means race night! Since it was Customer Appreciation Night and the tickets from the week before were being accepted due to a previous postponing, it was packedddd. But other than that, it was all good vibes. Afterwards, Michael, David, Shaylee, Momma, and I all grab a late night din din at good ole’ Hi-way Diner. πŸ™‚

June 6: I spent this Tuesday night hanging out with Yaya and Karmen. The three of us haven’t been together in a while, so we finally got together and just chilled at Karmen’s house. good, good times.

June 8: Unfortunate, summer- alternating doctor’s appointment. 😦 If you didn’t hear all about it before, read about itΒ here.

June 10: ESCAPED INMATES IN FIELDS NEXT TO THE BUILDING, IN LOCK-DOWN WITH ONE SHOTGUN, HELICOPTERS OVER HEAD AND COPS ALL OVER WITH LOADED AND READY RIFLES. June 10th was the day the two inmates escaped from the corrections center here in Lincoln {they’re caught now, thank goodness}, and they just so happened to end up right next to us. That is the short version of what the day was like, so if you ever wanna know the whole, long version…. ask me in person. πŸ™‚ P.S- Dawn, Sierra and I made the news and were in the Lincoln Journal Star paper for it, so make sure to check out that photo below. ha.

June 14: C & L Dairy Sweet- After dinner this Tuesday night, my momma, Shaylee and I decided to drive up to C & L and grab a sweet treat. yumma, yumma.

June 15: Nothing too big on this day, but after dinner with my momma, there was a GORGEOUS sunset pic. The photo below has no filter {lol}, and just naturally shows just how amazing of an artist God is. So, so cool. πŸ™‚

June 16: This day was a lot of fun :)… I got to spend most of it with my momma, doing a whole bunch of different errands. One of those errands was taking a quick little road trip up to Syracuse, Nebraska. While we there, I convinced her to stop at Jo-Bob’s, which is the cutest, most delicious little ice cream shop, {right along with C & L :)}. That day was super hot too, so thank goodness we were able to get something cold!

June 17: Oh boy, this Friday was one of the hardest, most tiring days of the year {especially for my momma} for a bunch of different reasons. That night though, Shaylee, my Aunt Holly and I were able to go spend some time together and eat some crazy good food at one of our favorite places- Texas T-bone Steakhouse. After that, we went back to our house, waited for my momma then just us girls talked and talked for about 3 hours, late into the night. By the end, we were exhausted but, it was all so relaxing and much, much needed.

June 18: Last Saturday afternoon, my Aunt Holly was back in town, so Shaylee and I went with her again and ran a whole bunch of different errands and ended the night, eating at AppleBee’s. Good, good day.

June 19: Father’s Day! My momma, Shaylee and I started out the day in Omaha again, going to church. We did some shopping in Omaha and then stopped in GretnaΒ  at the Outlet Mall, to do a little more shopping. Once we were back in Lincoln, we ran a few more errands. For Father’s Day, the whole fam went to dinner downtown, at the Flatwater Bistro in the Haymarket. So thankful for Sundays like that one and all the men in my life, who are so, so loved and appreciated.

That’s about it for this month so far. I’m looking forward to kicking this Mono out completely, vacationing with my family, and the 4th of July {OR MY MOMMAS FREAKING BIRTHDAY!!!} coming up! My family and I do leave for Branson this weekend and won’t be back til the 3rd of July. I will try to update as much as I can, but I’m not sure when exactly that will be sooooo… hang tight and I will see you when I see you. πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading. Much love, Davianne.

Bret Michaels Collage. No zoom on those photos, we were that close. Bottom pic shows just how many people were there that stood, doesn’t include all the people who sat in chairs behind that crowd and all the people in the balconies above.
