What a Monday morning! My site was down for a while this morning then my computer upgraded itself to windows 10 (noooooo) so I’m just now getting able to get on it. At least I have my workout done and a cup of Earl Gray in my hand. Bring it Monday.
Actually let’s reminisce for a moment first, can we? It was a wild weekend!
Jimmy Buffett came to Charlotte and despite being one of his favorite singers, David had never seen him in concert. I knew we had to change that so we bought two tickets back in December and had been looking forward to it ever since. Now, have you ever been to Buffett? If so, you know the level of tailgating is out of control. We packed a backpack with beer and sandwiches then my sweet friend dropped us off to fend for ourselves.
Not our tailgate, just making friends as we went.
Luckily the weather could not have been more perfect. Sunshine and high 70’s and Buffett are a match made in heaven. We wandered the rows and rows of cars, stopping to chat with new friends and play games along the way.
According to my fitbit, we walked over 17,000 steps, though I’m convinced I actually danced at least half of those steps.
Or limbo’d them.
When in Rome…
There is something about a concert in beautiful weather. Everyone is just so friendly and happy and my goodness, the people watching just doesn’t get any better.
To put it succinctly, we had a ball. And Jimmy himself was wonderful. I can’t even imagine how many times he has had to sing Margaritaville, yet somehow he convinced me it was a new song that he was still thrilled to play- such energy and enthusiasm! Next time I see him play it, it will be in the islands. #bucketlist
After he encored with a rendition of Purple Rain (RIP Prince), we cabbed it home and crashed hard, fitting it what sleep we could before putting back on our mom and dad hats on Sunday. Despite feeling a little foggy, we made Sunday as productive as ever. Somehow I got a bee in my bonnet about organizing and cleaned the fridge and pantry, washed every piece of laundry, vacuumed the car, cleaned the entire downstairs and even food prepped.
Hailey had two of her friends over and all four girls played so well together, allowing me to TCB.
Quinoa, roasted sweet potatoes and boiled eggs.
Nothing extensive, but enough to make me feel prepared for the busy week ahead.
It was such a great weekend of work and play- love when that happens.
Are you a concert person?
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to?
I saw Kenny Chesney at Neyland Stadium- that was pretty cool. I really love all concerts though!
