Musical Monday / Weekend Update: Part II...

I'm doing my weekend in two parts as it was a long, fun weekend.  If you missed Part I, you can read it here.

    Friday - the alarm seemed to go off right after I put my head on the hotel pillow.  I was up & ready to rock & roll by 9:45 as we were meeting my aunt, uncle & cousin for breakfast before venturing back to the grounds.  We got into the elevator with a guy with a Slipknot crew member t-shirt & pass on him & I asked if he was ready to for that night.  He simply replied:  "oh yea" & then another guy got on that was most likely a roadie for Slipknot as the other guy knew him & he was carrying a guitar.  A was able to snap a picture of their bus as we headed out.

We had a great breakfast & got ourselves into line & got some really excellent seats.  We then went to hit up the merch. tent & I got myself a Disturbed tour t-shirt.  Awhoo hoo!

Me & Aunt Julie.

It was another day of great performances:


Jen Ledger of Skillet.

I cried while Nothing More performed "Jenny", got really excited to see Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies (she is SO cool) & then when we realized that the guy I talked to in the elevator was actually the lead guitar player, Mick Thomson, of Slipknot, we were pretty dang pumped about that but nothing compared to the excitement I felt when I saw the Disturbed banner come down.  I've been waiting for seventeen plus years to see them & they totally rocked the house.  Honestly, I can die now, I'm happy!  Ha!

Since Paul & I aren't real big fans of Slipknot (sorry, to all you that are), we listened to a couple of songs & to beat the rush out, we decided to leave early.  I know, not very rocker of us.  But I did get some great pictures before we left, here's my favorite:

The rocker girl in me was sad when I had to cut my wristbands off but the old lady in me was happy that I would not be going back for the third day of festivities.  Ha!

    Saturday - both Paul & I slept in to about noon, got up, picked up some McDonald's, showered, took Sunshine to a friend's & then since we didn't have the energy to do much else, we went to see Ghostbusters.  You can read my thoughts on it here.  Then we came home, to plop in front of the TV before heading off to bed.

    Sunday - nothing spectacular except that Paul & I totally cleaned out the refrigerator, did our other usual chores around the house, watched the last couple episodes from season three of The Walking Dead & got ready for bed. 

A pretty good weekend & now, all I want to do is go to music festivals but Paul told me that I would then be tired all the time from all the rockin' & such.  So true, so true.  :)


  1. I love love love Nothing More, but I'm pretty sure that I've told you this already. I'm so happy you were finally able to see Disturbed!

    1. Nothing More was amazing! That guy has SO much energy, he was all over the place. My cousin said that he reminded him of Jim Morrison. I'd say that's a compliment. :)

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
