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:


Skillet.


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. :)

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…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
