George Michael Recap!!

Well...Just in case you missed the last 5 post..haha...
I went to the GEORGE MICHAEL concert last night!!!!!!
To say the least it was awesome, wonderful, and fantastic!

My wonderful friend Natalie and I headed out to the Toyota Center and decided to park 5 blocks away for cheaper parking (and we were an hour and a half early!)

Once we got the the gates, we stood there for 1/2 hour until they decided 5 MINUTES before the doors open that NO CAMERAS were allowed!

So we took a picture and walked our happy asses back 5 blocks to the car, dropped off our cameras, and then walked the 5 blocks back! (I'm not bitter!)

Once we got in we asked where our seats were, and a lady headed us in the right direction. (OR NOT!) We walked literally 360' around the entire place. Our suite was DIRECTLY in front of where we asked for directions!!

Once we got in our suite though it was well worth it!
Free drinks...and very comfy seats!!
Like I said..we had no cameras, so I had to work with what I had..my "crappy picture taking" razor phone!! Hey..it proves I was there and looking at his sexy dancing self!! ;)
Can you see him?!?!?!?
(believe me..I am super embarrassed by these pics, but whats a girl to do!...I knew I had to blog about this!)

and there he is again!!
I have one HUGE complaint though...he DIDNT play

I want your sex...WTF..how do you not play one of your biggest hits?!?!

I found this pic online..this was the actual stage of the concert...the stage had 3 parts with a light show the whole time or old videos! (gotta love the old cross earrings! lol)

Natalie and I are concert junkies..we have been to Limp Bizkit, Counting Crows, Christina Aguilera, Destiny's Child, Kenny, Matchbox 20, Tim McGraw, NSync, Britney Spears, and probably a few more together over the years! (and she is also one of the ones going to Madonna w/ me in November!)

I had to steal this one of the internet since I was robbed of taking one myself!!

PS...I am actually hoarse..I have no voice today..tell me how embarrassing that was at work telling people where I was last night! haha

Wedding and Aquarium pics! (finally!!)

Well, I finally got most of the wedding pics from everyone! My cousin got married in Austin a few weeks ago and I was in the house party. It was such a GORGEOUS wedding.

My uncle and his wife own, Mesa Ranch in Austin..if you visit or live there, you must go eat there..it is such a GREAT restaurant! Here is some of the fam eating brunch the day of the wedding! (this picture does nothing for the place..they are remodeling this location and about to open in August!)

One is on Mesa Dr and one is right off of I-35!!

He actually started VBS this morning, and said that he loved it! He came home with his offering in his pocket...should I be worried?!?!? lol They ended up not doing offering today, so he's off the hook!!
We have lots coming up over the next few weeks, so I'm sure theres lots of pictures to come!
