More Concert Mania!

More Concert Mania!

This weekend was a VERY busy weekend, but O so much fun!  Friday started off with 
Taste of Addison!  Its a huge Food & Music festival that is literally out our front door.  It's a complete blast and the food is pretty amazing too!  

Homemade Ice Cream!  
(Good, but Neema Holden's is still better)

An artist from Oklahoma had a booth with tons of pieces made out of vintage plates.  Jac and I couldn't resist.  She got a Texas, I got the OK and we both got a BU.  
They're amazing.    

If you're interested, let me know and I'll give you his e-mail.  He said he can specially make anything.  

Mom - 
don't you think Adam would LOVE a TCU sign?!?  He told me he would start working on it!  

Bustin out these old boots for the 2x...EVER.  I know what you're thinking..."Who is this cowgirl?!?"  
Calm yourselves. They are pretty cute though I must admit.  
There was a huge concert out on the lawn.  Of course Friday night (the only night we could go) was country night...not my fav, but live music is always great.  We saw Wade Bowen (not terrible) and Casey Donahew Band (a little too country for my liking).  People were all drunkenly two-steppin all over each other.  

(and for you crazy people that don't know who I speak of - 

On our way we go!
We thought we would get one good pic in before the humidity took over.  The concert was at the Gexa theatre, which is outside.  It was a great venu and the people watching was amazing! 
All different types, sizes and ages attend DMB with 
one thing in common: 
they're all high 
(well not us of course).  
Lets just say there were some funky smelling stinks wafting around that place!

Loving EVERY minute of it!

So sad to see Dave go.

And a special treat for you....

Concert Fever!

I've been bit by the concert bug....and it's bad.  To say I love music is an understatement.  Not everyone shares my awesome music tastes (tragic really), but I decided to bombard you with it anyways.  This past weekend was a major music filled weekend!  Friday night I went to the Norman Music Festival (a yearly tradition with my sweet friend Christie) and it did not disappoint.  Well other than the fact that the lead singer of the main band we were going to see canceled the show...supposedly overdosed...kind of puts a damper on things.  Now my favorite part is not the music.  O no....its the people watching.  NMF brings out Oklahoma's finest!  Lots of hair colors, awkwardly placed piercings, dreads, interesting clothing, lack of know the works.  Sadly I did not get any pictures.  For that you have my sincerest apologies because you sure are missing out!

Then on Saturday one of my best friends, Brian, took me to one of my favorite bands...
The Black Keys!
They really put on one of the best shows I've been to in a while.  Plus they had a ginormous disco can never go wrong with a disco ball.
And this concert has started concert fever.  

Highly anticipated concerts coming to Dallas 
(and I will be attending all of these...or at least I hope to)! 

May 19 : Dave Matthews Band
May 30 : Margot and the Nuclear So & So's
June 1 : The Lumineers
June 7:  Head & the Heart

And the BEST concert of all is :  
COLDPLAY on June 22

Feel free to tag along!
