concert frenzy.

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to attend 2 concerts that helped crossed an item off of my 101 in 1001 list!  

57. Go to one concert.

I have attended a couple of concerts in my life, but wanted to make sure that I stepped out of my comfort zone and went to a couple more.  See, I love listening to live music, but the crowd can sometimes get to me.  I definitely do not belong in the pit of any concert.  
Saturday was my mom's birthday, so I got up early and took her some huge cinnamon rolls from The Phoenix Bakery in Pittsboro and her birthday gift.  She had been wanting some new bathroom towels, so that's what she got. Now that's an easy gift!

Well, after I spent some time with her, I convinced myself that is was completely and totally acceptable to lounge around in my sweatpants/eat ice cream/lay in bed and watch New Girl all afternoon. That's totally normal...right?

Well anyways, in the midst of this laziness, my friend Jonathan tweeted that he had a free Joe Nichols concert ticket and was looking for someone to go.  Jonathan and I go way back...and I hadn't seen him in a while, so I was definitely interested.  BUT, that meant I actually had to put makeup on and wear real clothing...(say what?).

I'm glad I took the time to go with him.  We caught up, ate way too many free samples at the North Carolina State Fair and had a blast listening to some of Joe Nichols older and newer music. 

On Sunday night, I already had plans to go to the Chris Tomlin (Burning Lights Tour) concert with two wonderful ladies from work.  We stopped and ate a couple appetizers, grabbed our lawn chairs and blankets, and headed out to Koka Booth Ampitheatre for one of the first cold nights of fall.  Louis Giglio shared a wonderful message about the prodigal son and "God's Great Dance Floor". It was definitely a great way to start the week!
