Concert Series - Kid Rock (Rebel Soul - Best Night Ever)

With a new Kid Rock album on the horizon it has me thinking of him once again. I have been going to post these photos from the last tour since I took them which was on August 28, 2013. My, has it been that long? Like I said in a post earlier it seems last year was quite a blur for me without doing much but standing back and looking in from afar. For the last couple of months I have been trying to take strides to get more involved in moving forward on things left lying. A little each day seems to be working.  Anyway....

On Kid Rock Day (as we call it around here whenever it's concert day, or me sometimes any day of the week) it started early in the morning poolside for bloody marys and breakfast burritos. Of course, Kid Rock Day is always a vacation day and when it lands in the week it's two days and this was no exception, it was a Wednesday and a hot one at that, So Hott! It was perfect! 

After a morning of swimming, laughing and singing Kid Rock tunes it was time to go get dressed. We had decided to wear our cowboy boots to this show and we had been having a little fun posing our boots and bragging about which picture was best. No doubt mine was the best!! It did include a bottle of Kid Rock's beer after all. Enough said! They Say I'm cocky and I say....what, it ain't bragging if you back it up. Another fun thing about Kid Rock Day is quoting him all day long. I did a post not long after the concert about the boot photos which you can see here and it includes the video, Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy by Big & Rich. Cool stuff!

The tour was deemed as The Best Night Ever with all tickets selling for $20, $4 beers, $20 tees and free Jimmy Johns Subs at certain venues (Cincy was one) and free coffee after the show. Along with Kid Rock it was sponsored by Harley Davidson and Jim Beam. The new album at the time was Rebel Soul. I was excited to hear some of the songs live but he only did one song from the album and not even the single from the album. He did Celebrate which is a great party song so I didn't complain but I was a little disappointed he didn't do more songs from the new album. I have seen him many times and I had heard all the songs he played multiple times but afterwards I realized his point of the Best Night Ever Tour was not about selling the new album, it was about anyone who wanted to see him could come and have the best night ever for very little money. He picked the songs he did because a lot of these people had never seen him, might not be able to afford a future show and might not be able to afford the new album. He played his roots with party songs every fan knows and loves. He certainly did what he claimed he was going to do. He did a show for the working man, the downtrodden and the rebel in us all. His targeted audience was in full attendance! I read Detroit sold 30K cans of beer per night, per show, for eight shows. No wonder ZZ Top was singing Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers....the place was full of them! It was a Redneck Paradise!

Although we did get cheap tickets since they were all priced the same no matter where you were seated, we got the regular large beers and ate at O'Charlies beforehand. The lines were a nightmare for the cheap stuff.  Looking at those lines made us pull out some extra cash. Although everyone was making the most of it and smiles abounded. Except those who let their best night get the best of them and were face down in the lawn or those being carried out. Needless to say a Kid Rock show is quite entertaining for crowd watching people like me. There was a man in line in front of us trying to take a girl in who was passed out. He had her sprawled over his shoulder like a fresh kill when she wasn't propped up against him waiting for the line to move. Like the two of them were getting in. If you can't hang with the big boys get out of the Jim Beam. Sometimes the pre-parties are as much fun as the concert. Well, not really but they can come close. People can be nuts!

Doing our own thing we were a bit late to the party and missed Uncle Kracker but we caught the end of ZZ Top. Watching Kid Rock perform is always a treat. He puts his all into it and is an excellent musician and has a beautiful voice. He may have a bad boy reputation but he has a heart of gold at times too. His band, Twisted Brown Trucker are pretty awesome themselves and deserve a big shout out. It really is a must see show. After the concert I tried to get into someone's car that looked just like mine until I realized it was not mine. After that it took awhile to find the car but once found it was still a long wait to get out of the parking lot. It wasn't long though until we were seated at the Waffle House for breakfast. After driving the convertible in 110 degree heat all day and letting my hair fly on the way to Waffle House I was afraid to look in the mirror. It was going to take at least a half hour to brush my hair after sleeping on it. I certainly wasn't brushing my hair that night. Upon leaving I went back in the direction we had just came from. I guess I hadn't had enough. If it hadn't been pointed out from the backseat we would have ended up back at the river which actually would have been ok with me since Bobby was probably still there. 

I don't know that it was the best night ever but it sure was a great day!

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

Concert Series: Miranda Cosgrove

On August 10, 2011 we took our granddaughter to see Miranda Cosgrove, you know Nickelodeon's iCarly (she also played the band manager in School of Rock). Ashley knows every episode by heart and Miranda's solo album had just came out. We were all very excited! Especially my hubby who stated if he never watched iCarly again or listened to the cd it would probably be too soon for him. Of course, he had a blast regardless of his taste in tv and music!

We went shopping for Ashley before the show and I let her pick out her outfit. A little fashionista I do believe. The hat was totally her idea! All items are from Kohls. I picked up the white skirt for myself and my top was from the Modcloth end of summer sale last year. I think you all know my old kicks :o) I, thankfully, finally got a couple of new pairs which you can see here and here.

We had 4th row seats and they allowed the kids to go down front which meant Ashley had a front row view. She was up there hand slapping and danci…

Dreaming of Paris this Morning

It is still raining which is making me blue. Day after day it keeps falling. I believe we have broken the last record set in 1936. I was just thinking how nice it would be to get outta here and go somewhere dry. I guess Las Vegas would be my best bet since it's in the desert but for some reason my thoughts have turned to Paris. Wouldn't that be nice? Too bad I'm not part of the jet set so I will only be visiting in my mind. A girl can dream, can't she?

These Alexander McQueen boots could walk me right through inches of water :o) Alexander McQueen

Or maybe this little fellow could just lift me over the flood! He looks pretty strong but he's going to have to put on some clothes before he starts carrying me around! lol

Easter, April Fool's Day, Opening Day, ducks or zombies?

GO REDS!! ♥ Dress: Calvin Klein You can also see it here.
♥ Belt: Calvin Klein (Didn't come with this dress)
♥ Shrug: Kohl's
♥ Boots: Vintage

I couldn't really decide what to write about today. There was just so much going on the last few days. First I was off Friday for the holiday, then I cooked a big pork chop dinner Saturday, went to Mom's for dinner Easter Sunday, all the while trying to get in the Walking Dead marathon (spoiler alert ahead) before the season finale last night. Today is April Fool's Day (I really did see ducks and I have the pictures to prove it) and baseball season's opening day. Where do I begin??
I guess I'll start at the beginning. I really had a nice day Friday out running around with my hubby. We had a big steak early for dinner and then hung out with friends awhile. We didn't stay out too late, just long enough to have a bit of fun. I don't like to do physical work over holidays although it's not written in stone but…

Music Monday - Edgar Winter, Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer
//link to flicker image

Edgar Winter is by far one of my favorite artists! He ROCKS! His show was the second one I saw live without my parents when I was about 14. I was hooked! Over the years I have saw him many times, the last being a few years ago when he toured in Ringo's Allstar band (how awesome was that? Totally!). He is currently touring in the classic rock n blues tour with his brother Johnny Winter who is an awesome blues guitarist. To round up the lineup is Rick Derringer who is a member of Edgar's band, you know the All American boy who sang Rock and Roll Hootchie Koo, Leslie West (Mississippi Queen) and Kim Simmonds from Savoy Brown. 3 days till I am second row! I am so excited. I'll be wearing a new ModCloth dress to boot. I'll be telling you all about it soon.  ♥

This video is how the fellows looked back in day. Ohhhlalala on the skin tight bodysuit Rick is wearing. After all it was the 70's :o) Now you see why I liked them for mor…

Concert Series - Ringo Starr

In March it was announced that Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band were going to play the Fraze Pavillion on July 2nd. My granddaughter is a drummer and Ringo is her favorite drummer and also her favorite Beatle so it was a no brainer that I had to get tickets for us to go. Her birthday was close to the concert date which made for a perfect gift but it was all I could do to keep the secret. 7th row center seats, I was thrilled and I knew she would be too. The day finally came and she was overwhelmed when she got her ticket. Now the fun was to begin! As I have mentioned before The Beatles are my favorite band. Being an only child in the country with only 3 tv stations I turned to music at an early age for entertainment. I was at the prime age when The Beatles hit the big time to fall in love like so many other gals. Who knew they would have such an impact at the time but that's another story. When my granddaughter was born I decided I wanted her to listen to them at an early age al…

On a sweatshirt kind of day I wore something else :o)

♥ Shoes - Converse
♥ Shirt/Sweater/Belt - Burlington Coat Factory
♥ Shorts - Levis

On a cool day like today after it stormed all night, when it's still summer so the afternoon is warm, I would normally throw on a sweatshirt but today I said no to the temptation. I am so pleased that I did! The fashionistas are rubbing off on me....well a little anyway :o)

I found this great picture of my dad while trying to find another picture of something totally different. I thought he was the coolest and I guess he was ♥

Summer Strawberries on a thick waffle...OMG, YUM!

See what happens when I am left alone to fend for myself for dinner. A few too many calories but oh so good! I hadn't purchased waffles for quite some time but while walking through the grocery the other day I spotted these Ego Thick and Fluffy waffles. I'm not crazy about toaster waffles due to the fact that they are so skinny but these are now a new favorite. Toast them a golden brown, add fresh strawberries along with warm Mrs. Butterworth's syrup and you will be in waffle heaven. And all in about 5 minutes. Just forget about calories and indulge in a bit of sweetness for supper. You won't be sorry!

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
