Weekending: Eric Church concert!

Monday, August 22, 2016

This weekend was one of the first weekends we haven't been at the beach! Friday night we had dinner with some friends who are about to begin IVF. We got to talk them through the process, let them know what to expect, and encourage them. 

Saturday morning it was up early to drive an hour to my cousin's baby shower. It was such a sweet time with family and friends. I am so thankful for my husband's family and all my beautiful cousins on his side! I can't wait to meet this sweet baby girl.


 After the shower we sped home to get ready for the Eric Church concert. We had a big group for tailgating then we headed inside the concert which started off with Kid Rock, which, by the way, I am NOT a fan of. After Kid Rock came Eric Church who was AMAZING! If it weren't for the ridiculous, obnoxious drunk people sitting in front of and behind us, it would have been one of the best concerts I've been to. My husband and I started listening to Eric Church the first year we began dating when he wasn't well-known at all and have loved him ever since.

Speaking of "when we started dating"… 7 years ago today a tall, blonde, UNC baseball player picked me up and took me on our first date. He asked if he could take me out to dinner and I politely declined, thinking that he would be a hugely cocky Division I jock. And I couldn't have been more wrong! My mom forced convinced me to call him back and say yes, telling me that I "needed to meet new people in college". And the rest is history! Here's a major throwback to our first picture together. Look at that graphic tee HA!

Linking up with Meghan and Biana

  17. Ah! I love Eric Church! I missed his last show here in San Diego and sadly his next one will be too far away to go!! I'm so bummed that I missed him... I can't wait until he comes back, he is seriously one of my favorite country artists! I hope you had a fabulous time at his concert. I love the dress you wore to the baby shower... so cute!
