I was one of the fortunate people who snagged Mumford and Sons tickets before they sold out, and without really asking if they wanted to go or not I got my brother and The Boy tickets as well - lucky for me they wanted to! Because they had a pre-sale promotion and I was trying to find three seats together, we wound up with lawn seats, which is both a pro and con of outdoor concerts. The pro is it's an early summer night and you get to wander outside, the place certainly has atmosphere with sculptures and little huts selling food and drinks, and once it gets dark you're watching one of your favorite bands and if you look up, you're under the stars. And that's pretty cool.
Kristen (who had also snagged tickets) and I looked at each other and smiled because it was like being back in college again watching a band that we went to school with do their thing, and we stomped it out and danced and sang along. (I'd go into more detail, but I think I just found next week's WBW!).
And while the concert was awesome and I sang and danced and shouted and cheered, I think the highlight was being tucked away in the mini arcade with The Boy, surrounded by strangers and smiling and laughing with him. Even though the sky was raising hell just a few feet away, he looked at me with a big grin on his face and I knew it was all going to be fine. I love those little moments the most.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! No big plans on this end other than meeting a very good friend for breakfast, but I hope to find something to do Saturday while The Boy is at work. And make sure you check back in on Monday...I am going to announce my first ever giveaway!
