The Last Official BBQ Holiday...


And just like that, we've arrived at the waning days of summer. I, for one, could seriously use just a wee bit of a cold front right about now. 

This weekend, I'll be catching up some writing, knocking out some housework and deliberately staying out of the malls. 3N's fam is having a family reunion this weekend so I'll visit with them a little bit. Already enjoyed meeting some of the cousins. one of them greeted me by saying "well, you don't look like a gold digging ho" - uh, thanks? This should be good times. 

What's everybody doing for the holiday? Is anyone travelling? And what are we looking forward to this fall? Do share...

Good luck with the family reunion! I hope everybody plays nice. What is with that comment? Jiminy Crickets. 

I have nothing special planned. Truthfully, the summer went by too fast for me. I got some of what I intended to do done, but not enough.

my weekend will be filled with catching up and hopefully getting ahead of the curve on this schoolwork. damn graduate school!

::crickets making weaponry::

As for me and Labor Day, I'm using the weekend to recover from the earthquake and Irene. I just feel the need to recenter myself in my home (perhaps very Taurean of me--which I am and proud of--but I'm owning it).

My big Fall plans are: 
1) to get some, as Chele would say, some adult quality time with my lover in FL at the end of the month.
2) my mom visits me for a week in October. It's the first time she's ever been to NYC.

My cousin is visiting from UK, taking her to NYC.   Have fun at the reunion.

Graduate School struggle is real. I'm yet to buy my text books and classes are starting on 9/12.

CaliGirlED said...

Just wow on that comment from cousin-don't-know-what-to-say!!! But in all due respect to 3N, that's his folks and we all have 'em. Lawd knows I do! Anywho, hope the reunion and your time in it all goes well.

Happy Labor Day weekend to all the bouginistas and bougie bruhs! Be safe!

blackprofessor said...

Wanna trade places?? I would go back to grad school in a minute with no hesitation.  I couldn't wait to get out of grad school but now I know that being a professor is exponentially harder than being a grad student.

blackprofessor said...

It sounds like 3N has relatives like mine!! My family has a talent for saying the wrong thing to the wrong person at the absolute wrong time!

I intend to rest, hang out and chill this weekend.  My semester started two weeks ago so I have been back on the grind, ugh!! Happy Holidays to everyone!

Tonda Williams said...

HILARITY from 3N's family.... My plans? Celebrating ME. Party started last night and runs ACTIVELY through the actual day (Monday). I plan to dance (literally) as if  every moment of every day belongs to ME...

Happy Holiday Weekend..everyone

MsJamie14 said...

Wow at the cousin's comment.... does Billy Dee Ninja have some gold to dig? LOL

I'll be in the great state of Texas (Houston) visiting fam and maybe doing some socializing.

Enjoy your holiday everyone.

Mykeia said...

This weekend I will be watching my son play in his first ever sports event, football.  Cleaning house, jogging, pedicure, baking and sleeping in.

Good luck with the family reunion.

P.S.   You all in BouigeLand messed me up Wednesday night, I went to be thinking about bugs/critters/three foot long rats had a dream about them and jumped up in the middle of the night...the hubby and dog looked at me as if I lost my mind.  

Be safe BnB fam!

Mykeia said...

Be will getting centered this weekend...e-hugs.

SouthernWes said...

Sounds like you met Suzette. Good luck.

GrownAzzMan said...

What would our world be without cousins?

AndreaPlaid said...

::hugs:: 

Thanks so much, luv! I'm not ashamed to admit that Mother Nature got to me, shaking my foundation around having a place to stay and how easy it is to be displaced. I just want to be still in the sanctity and dignity of my (cozy) place. #RealTalk

BlackButterfly said...

Wow, 3N has relatives with no filter too?! 

Actually it seemed like my summer ended July 21 because my daughter started back to school(year round format).  So, there will be nothing special happening this weekend except cleaning, avoiding crowds and sleeping.  The kid's two week fall break is approaching soon so we will plan our fun for then.

CaliGirlED said...

Send me a DM Jamie!

CaliGirlED said...

 LOL

Earthangel172 said...

I am breaking out my fall decorations, cleaning out my closet to make room for my fall pieces and catching up on my DVR'd shows. Basically I'm not doing anything special! LOL

I hope you have fun at the reunion Chele!

Earthangel172 said...

Girl that rat from Marcy was something else!

Only1DivaC said...

I will be in Sonoma, CA Wine Country this weekend getting my bougie on with winery tours and a hot air balloon ride. Don't laugh at me @CaliGirlEd.

J B said...

Holiday plus 9/80 week + three additional days off = 10 days off!  Not going anywhere because of rehearsal/concert/performance, but I'll see a few friends, relax, and tackle that spare closet.  90s clothes: be gone!

Fall will be fun: birthday, 25th college reunion, football and at least one road trip!

TNDRHRT said...

Landed in Naptown (Indianapolis) earlier today to partake in the family reunion activities for the paternal side of the family. Is it really September 2? #wantsummerback Enjoy the holiday weekend, all!

tiffanyinhouston said...

3N's cousin gets the laser beam side eye. Please avoid her at all costs, you can curse her out after ya'll get married.

Weekend will be filled with TONS of college football (for him) and lots of rest (for me). I'm trying to schedule a girls happy hour too.

GuessImJay said...

Slick how you dropped that "m" right off in there...

Larry Love said...

I am going to a wedding and after that me and the wifey are considering doing a bar-b-que or raid someone else house for a bar-b-que.

CaliGirlED said...

 Laugh??? Girl take me with you!!!

CaliGirlED said...

Happy hour? I want to be happy!

CaliGirlED said...

 But it fit so perfectly!

Jubilance said...

I miss my 9/80 schedule *cries silently*

Jubilance said...

I'm heading to Chicago for the weekend - got a small family reunion & will be enjoying the sites & shopping.

3N's cousin is on 1000 - I'm sure the BnB posts next week will be uber entertaining.

MsJamie14 said...

I'm sure the BnB posts next week will be uber entertaining.

Right...cuz you know Mama Ninja is in town too! LOL. I remember her telling Michele "see you at the reunion..." LOL

bashowell said...

Smh @ the cousin.  I guess the previouslies were gold diggers? 
No plans for the weekend.  I plan to be in hiding and catching up on sleep.  I've got about thismuch patience right about now w/anxiety at 200% and I need some rest.

Lady Ngo said...

Funny enough, im getting my masters in educational leadership in higher ed. so had you taken the administrative route instead of teaching, i'd be trading places with you in a heartbeat as well

Leon X said...

I have homework and rehearsal. I also need a brain examination because I'm doing too much.

C Nelson said...

I'm housecleaning. It looks like we're finally making progress on the visa app, so Melbourne may actually be in my near future, and it's time to start deciding what's going (and therefore needs to be unpacked, cleaned, and repacked) and what can be given away and replaced once I get there. Oddly, most of the clothing won't go; wrong season. Much of the housewares probably will -- can't depend on Amazon to replace my china pattern and silverware in Australia, sadly.

Jazzy Jazz said...

I have a hot date with my schoolwork. Im 2 weeks behind . Le Sigh. 

Im mad SouthernWes knew who the cousin was lol 

Jasmin said...

I'm going to plan for  the next few weeks of school--me + 25 second graders is no joke. I would love some barbecue though (hint, hint to anyone living in the Bay Area).

GammasWorld said...

 No plans this weekend.  Fall is my all time favorite season, so I won't miss summer and all it's hotness one little bit.   If I could find a state that had "fall" year round, I'd move in a minute.  

Brneyed1 said...

Wow, first mom, now cousin??  3N's peeps are rough!!    

This weekend will be gardening, housework, and BBQ.  Wanted to squeeze in an "end of the summer" pedi, but that's not gonna happen.

Singlelif said...

I've already arrived at my Myrtle Beach vacation spot..you know...the one that my sister and her family has moved into and has lived in for the past 9 months now without paying rent..?  Yeah, that one.  #Family

rozb said...

I will be tightening up on my wedding plans. My planner is cracking her whip and I am getting down to the wire.

rozb said...

Will happy hour include tequila?

sunt97 said...

Abslutely nothing but sitting on my butt.   I was suppose to go see EPMD today but folks flaked on me.

Peace, Love and Chocolate,
Tiffany

Steve said...

Just looking around to see what's what.

CorettaJG said...

I went to your neck of the woods, DFW to visit my sister in Arlington, cheer on LSU, and do a Stella & Dot jewelry trunk show! I had a great time and you got your cold front.  It was downright chilly in the morning when I left.

I really love BBQ's, sometimes in my house I have cooked a BBQ with any kind of meat like chicken legs, pork chop and more... I really love cooking wish to be a good chef someday, to manipulate other kind of recipe's cause eating is my best motto.
