WHAT WE DID: OCTOBER 14TH

We try to make sure that we don't live the type of life in which we see our lives through the constant f/2.8, Instagram-friendly lens that lives on the back of our phones. Living like that makes having fun on the weekends a daunting task. "Is this 'gram-worthy?'" "Hey stranger, could you kindly turn slightly to your left and look into the sunlight?" We shouldn't have to be asking people these questions, but everything in the name of cool pictures, right? While we do know people like this, we aren't that bad...yet. 

We did fun stuff this weekend and documented said fun in a non-obsessive manner. Did you? Heck, we know you did because you tagged 'em with #WDDI and we saw all of 'em already. You had fun, too. Man, we love the weekend. Only five more days.  

There seemed to be lots of mini festivals close by this past weekend. We treked over to "The Unique Dining Capital of Texas" otherwise known as Roanoke on Saturday for "Celebrate Roanoke." We were mostly just there because we like Dentonites Brave Combo, we managed to have an excellent time in spite of ourselves. Watching an emmy winning band play to a crowd of less than a dozen definitely makes you feel better about yourself. In typical Combo fashion, however, they managed to get a crowd to not only gather but dance, as well. Here's Carl Finch of Brave Combo rockin' it with his accordion over the weekend. We love how "into it" Finch has always managed to be - always the showman.

Shaina Sheaff enjoyed the selection over at Denton Camera Exchange. We do, too. Have y'all checked it out yet? Hope on over and take a look at some of their awesome older models sometime.

Reader, Bo Aughtry, went to Giuseppi's and found himself puzzled by this painting on the wall. Somehow, though, it does make us want Italian food.

Do we talk about The DIME Store too much? We don't right? Man, we love that place. Shift, DIME and La Mexicana are an excellent S. Locust trifecta.

  We stopped by one of Denton's best attractions, Rose Costumes, to check out the costume selection for Halloween 2013. Your party may need their Game of Thrones throne, to go along with your white walker costume. Seriously, though, while we may be a little biased, this place is awesome. It makes for a great stop even when it's not October and is a great excuse to throw a costume party.

We loved seeing all of the UNT spirit being taught to future generations.

Speaking of spirit being taught to future generations - we're pretty convinced 'cheer camp' is just code for little kids bouncing around on the side lines. It's cool - its so dang cute we'll let it slide.

One of the highlights of being at the game is taking in the halftime show of course!
