Sundays in the South: It's Been a While!

I think it's been a while since I've posted on a Sunday.  I'm pretty sure that's because it's been a while since we've had a "normal" Sunday around here.  Time seems to have flown by since the holidays!  Busy - busy- busy!

I sure am ready for spring!  Today is a beautiful day in the 60's here and I'm not going to lie...I'm getting spring fever!  I love that you can tell that the days are already getting longer.  Unfortunately since I was sick this past week, that means I spent much of this beautiful day cleaning the disaster that I call a house.  It's amazing how quickly things pile up, even with just the hubs and furry friends around here!

However, I HATE to go out of town without first having the house spic-and-span clean, so it had to be done!  There's something about coming back home and walking into a pristine house that makes my heart smile!

Out of town?  Yeah, I get to skip school one day this week....I'll be heading to Atlanta.  Anyone want to guess why?

You got it!  A concert!  I am soooo excited that concert season is starting back up!  It actually started up last weekend.  Yes, when I was under the weather.  I wasn't actually feeling too bad last Saturday since I was on maximum meds so I was up for it.  Unfortunately, that was the weekend that we actually had snow and I decided to go without a coat {not the smartest idea, right?}  Well, we have parking passes at our concert venue here in town, so we never have to wait in line.  Just park right at the door and ZOOM right in.

Well, except for last weekend.  When it was cold enough for snow.  And I was sick.  And I didn't bring my coat.  Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's what pushed my cold over the edge.

I think it was so crowded because, unlike my usual early arrival to concerts everything, we decided to go a bit later, knowing that we didn't care if we missed a bit of the opening act.  Well, it put us smack dab in the middle of the crowd.  Apparently the line out front was sooooo long that people were walking around to the back entrance making our line super long as well!  Ugh!

All for.....Kid Rock.  I'm not the biggest Kid Rock fan, but I do like a few of his songs.  {Picture with Sheryl Crow}  You see, our town pretty much only gets country acts.  So, when someone else comes along we have to support!  Don't get me wrong, I love country, too - and I always support those concerts {well, I will not be supporting Jason Aldean this year....since it's his 4th year in a row here}, but I would LOVE to see some variety!!!!!!!!!!!!  We have very eclectic music taste and I would love to take advantage of our local seats rather than traveling to Atlanta or Charlotte so often.

Surprisingly, the concert was amazing, though.  He came out to a little Journey and threw in a lot of different tunes throughout the show.  And, yes, he did sing Picture even though it was with someone else. :)

That was a great start to our concert season.  But, guess who is up this week???

I'm not sure how we've never seen Bon Jovi in concert, but it's definitely a "bucket list" show!  So excited!  It will be a fabulous day trip with the hubs mid-week!

Speaking of mid-week, if there are any "budding bloggers" out there that would like to be showcased in upcoming weeks, send me an email!  I try to keep it to bloggers who have fewer than 300 followers.

I did get my Memoirs Writing Unit finished up, too....it's in the proofing stage right now, so I hope to be able to post about it soon.  It has lots of my favorite activities from this unit in it and I can't wait to share it with you soon!

Make sure you have entered my Itty-Bitty Giveaway for a "Pop! for Word Families Game" and a $10 Barnes & Noble Giftcard.  The winner will be announced on Wednesday!

  1. I LOVE Kid Rock! We just went and saw him (for the 3rd time) in Nashville last weekend! I'm typically not a HUGE Kid Rock fan. I mostly listen to Country but the hubs turned me on to Kid Rock a few years ago. He seriously puts on an awesome concert! So funny that you went too! :) Happy New Year is my new favorite!

  2. Bon Jovi is a total dreamboat! I could probably be content to just stare at him:)

  5. Ooh, have so much fun at your concert! I've sadly only been to one concert, when I was 14... It was NSYNC ;) wow, that was a LONG time ago. Anyway, we've attempted to go to a few others, but because we'd have to go to Vegas and get a hotel room somewhere, it's usually too expensive for us to consider. Maybe one day I'll go to more.

    I'd love to be part of your budding blogger series! I for sure have less than 300 followers, however I don't make products for TPT or tn. Not sure if that matters.

  8. I am so jealous right now! I have loved Bon Jovi since he had really large fluffy hair and wore leapord skin print. Gorgeous! I missed out on tickets to the concerts they will be doing in Australia and I am so unhappy! I hope you have a great night and enjoy the music (and the eye candy, heehee)
