- Concerts. Particularly country concerts. On August 13th we attended the Brooks & Dunn: Last Rodeo tour. It was supposed to be in June, and was a Mother's Day present I got for my mom, but got postponed due to Dunn being sick. Although we could tell that he still wasn't feeling 100%, they put on an awesome show. And it's their last tour as a duo. So I'm pretty psyched we got to see them.
I'm a total sucker for concerts, and really wish we had the time and money to go to more. I'm always keep my eyes peeled for shows in the area.
- Finishing School. Ok, so that's an exaggeration. I finished the summer term. And one of my master's degrees, Master's in Operations and Project Management. I've still got 4 more classes to go until I have my MBA, but it's nice to have one under my belt, and to be soooo close to the end. Also, it doesn't hurt that I have the next few weeks off. And that I got an A. But really, June 2011 can't come soon enough!
- BBQs. We had a BBQ at our house with friends this month, something we hadn't done all summer. I mean, what's better than breaking out the grill, having a few beers, and playing ladder ball with a few of your favorite people? I'll tell you. All of that, plus gummy worms soaked in coconut rum. Uh, yea. Delish. And dangerous.
- Finding New Music. It's been a long time since I've fallen for an artist I've never heard of before. But, it happened. At work, when the ipod is dead or I forget it, I'll listen to Yahoo! or AOL radio, and usually tune it to New Country, since I feel like any of the other country ones have all the same music I hear all the time. And I heard a couple of songs from Brantley Gilbert. Well, feeling impulsive, and ignoring the fact that maybe he should consider changing his last name, I came home and listened to some snippets on iTunes, and then coughed up the $9.99 for "Halfway to Heaven". 100% worth it. Might even buy the other album.
- This Picture.
I rarely have pictures of myself, since out of myself and B I'm the "photographer", and even when I do happen to get in a shot, I don't usually like it. Our friend snapped this one at a wedding (congrats H&D!) and shockingly, we both look pretty good. LOVE it.
