Play Something Country

This weekend was busy, busy, busy!! Marine-Parents were going out of town and Marine-Sis didn't want to go so she came and stayed with me. 

Quality bonding time.

We rented movies. Watched Gerald Butler. Ate junk food.

Did I mention she's 15 and just got her learners license? Saturday I took her out on back roads and let her drive. 

Just us and empty dirt road. She did great and we even ventured out onto the main road..... where I had to explain that she had to go over 20mph or someone was going to rear-end her. Ahhh to be 15 again with the newly found freedom of the open road.

Sunday I met with some friends to attend Brooks and Dunn's Last Rodeo tour. It was AWESOME!!! We got there several hours before and tailgated, this of course resulted in an F trifecta = Friends, Food, Fun. 

Red had cooked a huge spread and I think we were the envy of every other tailgater in a 5 mile radius.

I of course had mixed a favorite concoction of mine (thanks to Vivi and her mad bartender skillz) pink panty droppers. So by the time the concert started I had a good buzz and had reached the fun part.

Miranda Lambert was the opening act and also put on a great show. Gotta love Gun Powder and Lead.

Great concert full of much laughter, singing and dancing.

Brooks and Dunn will always be one of the greatest duos of all time.

What a great name for a drink! Isn't Miranda great? I think she's cute. I think I'd have preferred her as an opening act too, just cause I'm a fan of all her hits but the other ones not so much.

What a sweet thing-bonding with Marine's little sis. Aw to be 15. I would have given anything to have a cool older "sis" to hang out with at that age! She must have felt so special.
