Hey friends!! It’s been a crazy couple days around here and I am just now organizing my pictures from last weekend. We had such a fun (maybe a little too much) weekend and went straight into the week with both my husband and I going away on business trips on Monday.
Yesterday was actually our Friday and we left after work yesterday for the lake! We are having a long Labor Day weekend at the lake with a few of our friends and I couldn’t be more excited for some down time. On Tuesday when I got home from my work trip, I slept for 4 hours, got up for an hour and went right back to bed for 8 more hours. I was exhausted!
So let’s get right to it before another weekend gets away from me! My husband and I didn’t have any set plans for Friday night, but we knew Keith Urban was playing at Bridgestone so we were keeping an eye on tickets all day long and finally found some in the lower bowl for a great deal so decided to go!
I’ve been really into watching hair tutorials on youtube lately and trying to recreate them. This was one of them… not quite as successful as the video I copied, but I’m getting better.
Jon and I went to Amerigos for a quick dinner before the concert.
A date night with this guy is always a good night in my book!
My husband had some kind of crab bisque and a salad and I got my favorite salad (with goat cheese!!!) and grilled salmon. I know you guys, my food choices are just so exciting and unpredictable. 😉
Kelsea Ballarini opened for Keith Urban and she was fantastic. Keith was really good too! He brought up his wife, Nicole Kidman, on stage and then Reese Witherspoon got up there too. Did you guys see them act together in Big Little Lies? I read the book and am usually disappointed with a series or movie that was a book first, but I really liked the show and thought it was really well done. Keith Urban brought out a couple more guests, one being Carrie Underwood. Unfortunately us old people over here were too tired and left early and missed her, but hey, we found an uber quickly and got out of the madness that is downtown Nashville these days.
Saturday morning we got up bright and early for a run to Costco and the grocery store to stock up for our lake trip this week. You may have seen my snapchat stories from Costco, but if not, I will fill you in. There is a reason I grocery shop alone. I made my husband push the cart while I loaded it up and every time I turned around he was nowhere to be seen.
He was either off getting samples or shopping for things not on our list! We literally ended up with twice as much stuff as I had planned to get.
Then he got a hotdog. I am never taking him shopping with me again. :I am the type of girl who makes a list and sticks to it, but not when my husband is in tow. He’s pretty cute though, so I’ll forgive him this time. 🙂
Saturday evening we had dinner reservations at Stoney River before the Taylor Swift concert.
I had the ahi tuna and my husband had steak medallions and we both loved our meals.
My forever date. 🙂
You guys, I have been to a lot of concerts in my life and this was by far my favorite one yet! Taylor was freaking awesome. So entertaining, sweet, and just such an amazing performer. She was flying across the crowd in a gold cage, interacting with the audience, and did quite a few acoustic songs, which are my favorite.
She even had surprise guests Faith Hill and Tim McGraw join her for her song “Tim McGraw.” It was so so so awesome.
We had a blast and stayed until the very end. The Ubers were few and far between by the time we left so we just started walking away from downtown to hopefully get lucky and get an uber. Well… we were not so lucky and ended up walking at least 3 miles… basically almost all the way home! We got a cab less than a mile from our house because we just could not walk anymore. 🙂 Oh you can kinda see it in this picture, but my husband got me this diamond pendant necklace that I have been wanting for a few years. It was such a thoughtful gesture to start our date night!
Even the confetti at the concert was neat!!!
Sunday was a pool day with my momma, my husband, and his little brother (from Big Brothers Big Sisters).
We just lounged and read and grilled out for lunch. It was a nice relaxing way to end the jam-packed music-filled weekend. 🙂 I went to bed at 7pm because I was so tired!
That wraps up our fun weekend! Now tell me about yours!
- What did you do this weekend?
- What is the last concert you went to?
- Do you grocery shop alone or with a significant other?
