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. :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
