When Garth Brooks announced he was going back on tour this year Patrick and I immediately started talking about going. I didn't think he would come to Birmingham but hoped he would come close. Well the second city he announced was Atlanta. We knew we had to go! We didn't get tickets the day they went on sale so we started to lose hope. Well I was randomly checking a ticket site and there were some available so we snatched them up. Our friends Tony and Carla went with us and we had a so much fun! We got a hotel room for the night so we wouldn't have to worry about driving back. The drive over seemed to take forever, I think it was because we were all so excited. We narrowly avoided a head on collision, Tony quickly realized we were going the wrong way down and turned down a side street but it was scary for a second. We finally arrived at the hotel just in time for check-in. Funny story: Friday, Patrick asked me if I was going to be taking an overnight bag. I wish you could have seen the look I gave him. It's like he doesn't know me at all. I take an overnight bag when I go somewhere for the day. Needless to say I packed an overnight bag.

We got ready and headed to dinner.
We went to dinner at the first place we came to. Ted's Montana Grill. We used to have one in Birmingham but it closed. (Patrick and I had eaten there before but I spent most of the meal trying to remind him. He is convinced I went with someone else.) After dinner we had time to kill before the show so we decided to ride the Ferris wheel to get a good look at the hip hop festival. It was such a beautiful day!
My bearded date. He was so excited about all the compliments he got on his beard.

I was so afraid our seats were going to be terrible.
There were definitely better seats in the house but there were worse ones too.
