Musical Monday / Weekend Update: Part I...

Musical Monday:  Die for You by Otherwise.  This is by a band I probably would not have found if I didn't go to Rock USA.  I made up a Rock USA playlist on Spotify of all the bands that were performing.  I did there two most played songs & added them.  This was one for Otherwise & I was really excited to see it.  They put on a great show & I would see them again, if I had the chance.

Weekend Update:  since my weekend started on Thursday, that's where I'll start...

    Thursday - I got my butt outta bed & got ready to hit the road to Oshkosh to start our Rock USA weekend.  I was SO damn excited!

First, we wanted to get fully bellies so we had lunch at Olive Garden, headed to the hotel to drop off our stuff & then headed to the Ford Festival Grounds.  By the time we got there, the first band was already playing - Wayland.  We picked out our seats & then went to get our big ol' Rock USA mugs (which I didn't get a picture of - ugh!).  As we walked into the cocktail tent, a woodchip went right through my shoe into my foot.  Yea, there was blood & I thought it was a bad way to start the adventure.

It was just the hubby & I for most of the day.  After each performance, we got up to do some walking around the grounds to see what there was to offer.  Paul was happy cuz he got free cigs & chew from some vendors (he doesn't chew but he'll be giving it to a friend).


Paul watching Trivium.
He got that hat there & was SO happy
as he needed a hat like that.

Right before In This Moment started, my aunt, uncle & cousin arrived:

Uncle Felix, "G", Aunt Julie, me & Paul.

Since we got four free tickets,
we took this shot & sent a thank you to
the gal we got the tickets from.

In This Moment.
Maria changed into about six different 
outfits leading my cousin to ask if
we were at a Britney Spears concert.  Tee hee!

This was the second time I've seen them & 
they killed it.  Lzzy Hale is AMAZING!

Five Finger Death Punch.
The first time I saw them, we didn't stay for
the whole show as I almost got trampled.
This time, I stayed FAR away from any moshing
& enjoyed the show immensely.  :)

Stay tuned for parts two & three...


  1. One of my absolute favorite things about music festivals is finding a new song or band. And, I'm digging this Otherwise song. I've never heard of them. So, thanks for sharing with your fellow rock chick!

    1. I'm glad that you like it! They really were pretty cool. When we went to Northern Invasion last year, I was introduced to Starset & they played at Rock USA as well & they were just as good the second time around. :)

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

$10 at Target...

Yea, I was able to get to Target & get some goodies so I could link-up with one of my favorites!  Awhoo hoo!  If you wanna join in, visit Liz or any of the other hosts to linkup.  :)

Here is my haul:

Sunshine complained the other night that she needed more socks so I picked her up some.

I had to hit the clearance Easter stuff & picked these up for Paul.  He loves sour stuff so thought they would be right up his alley.  :)

I picked these up for myself.  I love them SO much & since I didn't make myself an Easter bag I figured I would grab these when they were 50% off.  Yum!

My grand total:  $10.96 Almost a dollar over but that's okay, I got some needed things.
