Week 24: Almost halfway through 2015.

I have been looking forward to this weekend since we bought our tickets a month ago. We had the best time at the show in Atlanta that we knew we wanted to see Garth and Trisha again. This time was going to be so much fun because we had a big group going. I was so excited to get a night out! We dropped Barrett off around noon on Saturday so we could relax and take our time getting ready. I told Patrick I was going to start getting ready around 1:00 to which he replied, "It's not the Prom!". So I pushed it back to 2:00 so I'd have ample time to be looking my best in case Garth and Trisha noticed me.
Funny story, I saw this dress in a local boutique last month and fell in love with it. Pink is my signature color. I didn't buy it because I just couldn't justify it that day. I didn't say anything about it, Well about two weeks later, Brittany told me she went in the new boutique and bought a dress. She was like it's hot pink, you're going to love it. I was so stinking excited that she'd bought it and agreed to let me borrow it. It was perfect for this occasion. It was bright so no one in our group lost me and I'm pretty sure both Garth and Trisha saw it and waved at us!
Anyway, I love it. It was one of those outfits that I just felt good in. You ladies know what I mean. I'd gotten several compliments on the way in and I'm feeling good, then I tripped and almost busted my face. It was very humbling and I probably needed to be knocked down a notch.
We met at On Tap in Fultondale to eat before we headed down. We decided to all pile in my car and ride together. It was fun!
Selfie stick in action.
More pictures to pass the time. We were told that it was going to be a "hard open" at 7:05 sharp since there was another show at 10:30. At 7:30 Garth came out. There was no opening act.
Jessica took this from her seats. That bright pink dress by the guy in the white shirt and hat on the second row of the upper deck. That's us. Jessica said I was glowing! ha!
After the show we went to Tin Roof with all the young people. I was looking around wondering why they let so many kids in. Then I realized I was old. We had a blast though. I'd forgotten how much fun live music is.
I was so happy Matt and Jennifer took our last minute extra tickets. We always have so much fun with them!
A night out with the Hortons isn't complete without a late night stop at Waffle House. Jessica and I got bumped to another table because we had to go to the bathroom.
So we took selfies. We ended the night listening to Garth on the jukebox. (and maybe a little Britney Spears). It was seriously one of the most fun nights. After the crappy year we've had it was fun to dance it off. I want to go again! I'd go see him every weekend if I could.
Week 23 was a good one!

It's been a couple of months since I posted monthly goals. Things got crazy around here for a little while (and I don't even remember what we were doing). I loved having goals but I was bad at keeping up with them. I'm back on the wagon so to speak and looking forward to this month. (even though it's already the 8th)

I can't believe I'm just now getting around to writing about Memorial Day Weekend. (I haven't been very punctual with my blogging these days). We were so excited because for the first time in 8 years Patrick was off all weekend and Monday. Friday afternoon we loaded up the car and headed to the lake. We spent most of Friday night sitting on the deck wrapped up in blankets because it was cool. Barrett played with my brother's kids and we just had the best evening hanging out and relaxing.
I can't seem to get these posts up in a timely manner. Maybe one day I'll actually be organized instead of just making enough lists to think I am and then not following through with said lists.

As you know we about a month ago we lost our lab Gracie. We knew Sam would be heart broken without her. We were afraid he would go downhill fast and we were right. 31 days after he lost his best friend, Sam passed away. It was heart breaking to lose him but it was also heart breaking watching him mope around without her. When he realized she wasn't coming home he quit eating. He would eat bread or scraps but he wouldn't eat much else. He didn't want to go outside. He just laid by the garage door. He didn't get excited when we came home. He was just there. You could just tell he was heart broken. It was pitiful.
