Hi People! I know it's been a little while since I've stopped by. I've been sorta busy. Our September has been crazy between weddings and concerts and everything so far! But I did get a little time to do some crafting this weekend after I saw one of my favorite artists up close and personal at the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino here in town. That's right! Little old Sioux City has a Hard Rock. It opened a little over a month ago and it's pretty awesome. I don't really gamble, so I haven't spent a lot of time there, but they have brought some bomb concerts to the area including one of my favorites, Phil Vassar!
|This is what front row tickets gets you.|
I have been dying to see him for awhile so when I finally got the chance, I was pumped. I splurged and bought front row tickets as a birthday gift to myself! Sometimes those are the best birthday gifts. Of course, Eric doesn’t really know who Phil Vassar is and didn’t even know I was that big of fan. Well as we got closer to the concert, I got more and more excited. I tried so hard to win meet and greet passes all week but didn’t win. L
Fast forward to the day of the concert and I had commented on someone’s post on Facebook about how we were going to the show. I get a text a couple hours later from a friend who works at the Hard Rock and deals with all the entertainment asking me if I wanted meet and greet passes! Of course I did!! I was pumped!
We only got to meet him for about a minute and take a quick picture, but it was awesome! And the concert was even more amazing! I even teared up a bit during one song. I don’t know if it was because it was a sappy wedding song or if I was just that excited that I was there in the front row singing along to every song. Probably a combination of the two. (I’m a nerd, I don’t care.)
The show itself was even better than I could have ever imagined. He is such a phenomenal performer and sounds incredible live. Homeboy can play the piano like nobody’s business. And I don’t care if he’s old enough to be my dad, he’s kind of a babe. I would pay to go see him over and over again a million times. It was perfect.
I think the best part was after the concert Eric said to me, “Jeeze, you sang along every word to every song. I guess you are kind of a big fan.”
Also, on a completely unrelated note, we’re getting engagement pictures taken tomorrow! So stay tuned for a sneak peak!
