So let me tell you all about our trip. For starters, once again, we got to travel in style!!
Our friends, Monica and Scotty, bought the bus and tickets to the Keith Urban concert at the Shake for Jake this year. Don bought the four of us tickets, and we thought, "what the heck", let's just call and ASK if we can hitch a ride. And for our boldness, we were rewarded!
This is the group in the back of the bus. These are the dudes!I am sure there was SportsCenter and lots of Miller Lite flowing!
Up front, we had pretzels and maitais and girl talk! Oh, and as usual, there is Don, my very sensitive/ feminine brother-in-law, Don. Before I left, I was DETERMINED to grab all of my markers so I could draw all of our "tattoos"!
As you may know, Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland, has a heart with wings on the inside of her right arm. Soooooo, we felt we needed to have one too!
I got one, Paula had one, Staci got one...
Gaye decided she needed TWO!
AND a cross on her neck, thank you very much! She thought it made her look tough!
And my girly brother-in-laws wanted a big one on his forearm.And of course, I needed a couple too!Just needed a little message to my new favorite man. "I Love Keith" on the inside of my left forearm!And I would say from there, things started Sliiiiiiding downhill!
Staci decided she needed a "sleeve"!WOuld you believe someone in the concert stopped her and wanted to know where she could "buy" one of these! HA. Oh, and I HAD to slip this picture in there. Friends don't let friends put on lipstick this dark and not tell them that it looks horrific!We made the almost four hour trip to Little Rock, AR and unboarded the bus.
And headed to the concert!
First up was Sugarland. I have always liked this group, but duuuuude....
I am a SUPER FAN now!
Jennifer Nettles has SO much soul! I just absolutely LOVED watching her do what she so obvoiusly LOVES doing. Passion is so evident in a person's life! Jennifer is following her dream, and it SHOWS!
By the way, Christian is too! These two have such chemistry, and they both seem to enjoy being together, being on stage, and singing. They smiled so much!
And as Jennifer started whipping out props like this sequined hat, Don looked at me and said, "Do you just love her? I think y'all are kindred spirits". I agree.
I know we can't be... but I swear I think me and this chick would be great friends! She has such an energy about her! She has MOJOY!!!
I think Todd may have fallen in love all over again during this concert! I have to admit it... she is COOL!
And one more little video for you...I LOVE the end of this song where he sings over her. You can hear me telling Staci," Here it comes...".
Next mini concert... Keith Urban! Ummmmm.
