On a steel horse I drive (to Oklahoma in my Volvo...)

Yep, it's that time again...the boys are touring and me and Bonnie are along for the ride (well, at least one ride and one trip downtown).  Last night, we made our way to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for the first concert of the tour that we will be attending.  We wore our new shirts that we got each other for Christmas thinking that we'd be a part of many people that would be all "blinged" out, however, it seemed like we were in the minority a little, but we didn't care...we were ready to rock and enjoy ourselves.  We had great seats and sat next to some people that were into the concert too, so we had a great time!  The concert was awesome!  Probably one of my favorite that I've been to thus far.  They played for almost three hours, sang 26 songs and sang all the hits new and old!  It was a great concert!  Nice, loud crowd and the band was on fire! It's been almost 24 hours since the concert and I am still hoarse from scream/singing for 3 hours and very tired, but would do it all over again in a minute if I could cause it is such a fun experience! Seriously, if you've never been to one of these concerts...go!  You won't be disappointed!

Some pics for your viewing pleasure...

Richie was back and on his "A" game this time
(unlike how we saw him much of the last tour before rehab)

Making some fan very happy singing directly to her!
Bed of roses was fantastic!

Captain America! 

He's looking right at me...all the way up in row "P"
I'm just sure of it!

Now, mind you, this wasn't the only concert we've been to in the last week...last Sunday, we drove to Tulsa, Oklahoma to see Muse in concert.  I wasn't as familiar with their music, but am a good friend and want to support my friend's obsession, and agreed to an adventure/road trip.  It was a great concert and I really loved the music.  They are 100% different than Bon Jovi, but the concert was awesome, great set, great crowd, great time!  

Smile:  What have I smiled about lately?
I have smiled at how my sweet friend seriously has an obsession with Zombies.  Last night as we drove back to the hotel from the concert, we saw a guy stumbling out of a bar..we think he got sick and clearly was having a hard time walking.  Now, I just thought it was a drunk guy that needed to go home and get some rest...Bonnie on the other hand had a different perspective on the situation and said "If I didn't know better, I'd think he was a Zombie."  I can honestly say that would probably never come out of my mouth, but laughed really hard when Bonnie said it.  I do seriously hope the Zombie Apocalypse doesn't happen..that guy was scary enough without being one! (or was he??)

Celebrate:  What do I celebrate?
I celebrate that I've successfully completed two weeks of Graduate School and am really liking what I'm learning.  I am trying to apply what I'm learning and while it's hard, I do think I can do it!  I can't wait to see what I learn this week!

Love:  What do I love?
I love this new organization that I've learned about from Church called, Compassion International.  It's an organization that supports children in third world countries that are in severe poverty.  I've signed up to help a little boy, named Kalissa in Rwanda.  I'm so excited to be playing a role in a little boy's life and look forward to getting to know him through the years! 

Thought for the day:
I don't believe in complicated formulas for success. Here's mine: Act like it depends on you Pray like it depends on God -- Jon Gordon

And...I couldn't end the blog without giving you a taste of the awesomeness...One of the new songs on the "What about Now" album.  Here's the title track...makes you want to go out and do something to make a difference...I hope you will.

  1. Oh Tara! What a great post. Though, "obsessed with zombies" is such a strong claim. Alas, I guess I do talk about them a lot. But in my defense he lurched along quite disturbingly. You are a great friend and I'm happy your willing to go along with my musical adventures! Hugs!
