Weekend Happenings-Checking off a Bucket List Item

Well, I have been absent for a couple of weeks now… The week of my birthday I got sick.  It was mainly a cold/sinus type infection but I had a 101 fever with it!  So I only worked two half days then had to leave for Biloxi for my social work conference.  I have NOTHING to blog about from that trip because I literally did nothing.  I didn’t leave the casino I was staying at the entire time.  I ordered room service the first night and went to the buffet the second night.  I was asleep by 9:30 each night.  I did get to celebrate my birthday with my friends when I got back home with a nice dinner.  My fever went away after three days, but I am still coughing and blowing my nose!  I am definitely ready to be back to 100%.

So what bucket list item did I check off….

GARTH BROOKS!!!!

Y’all.  This was a once in a lifetime show!  My 90’s heart was so happy!  I had goosebumps, wanted to tear up at times, and sang my heart out!  He ended up playing four shows in Memphis.  When they went on sale, I was literally on three devices trying to get tickets for any of the shows.  I ended up getting the best seats for the Saturday afternoon show at 3:00pm.  I was hesitant about this show time, but it ended up being so good! No matter your seats, the ticket cost was one set price.  I was amazed at how good our seats were for this show!  We couldn’t have asked for better seats for the price!  We went downtown for lunch then headed to the show.  When we got out, we met my in-laws to eat, and then got home a little after 10!  Great, wonderful, fabulous day!

Trisha Yearwood was fabulous also!

 

I bought three tickets.  Two for me and my husband.  One for my brother in law.  My brother in law ended up getting tickets for him and his girlfriend for a different show.  So I asked one of my besties to go with us!  I am so glad she was able to go with us!  We had such a fun day with her!

And of course I can’t leave out my pics of my hottie husband!  This was his one of his Christmas presents.  He said it was the best concert he had ever seen!  I agree, babe!

So even if you aren’t the biggest country music fan, go see this show if it comes to your town!  You won’t regret it!

Sunday was spent at church, taking naps, eating crawfish and catfish for supper, then watching the Super Bowl from the comfort of our couch!  I am not really into the Super Bowl this year because I don’t care about either team.  I guess if I have to pick, then I will pick the Falcons just because they haven’t won a Super Bowl!  And as of right now, it’s looking good for them!

This week is going to be busy for me because I have a four day training in Memphis Tuesday-Friday.  So I gotta squeeze in a lot of work tomorrow with the students!  Hope your Monday is wonderful!

God Bless! XOXO-Sarah
