I’m going to begin my post with a simple question:
I’ll tell you in a sec how that’s relevant to my rockin’ weekend.
There’s only one face that can some up this past Friday-Sunday:
After a 5 hour drive, I arrived to see these three happy faces:
We ate, we drank, we danced, and after my final five-mile run Saturday morning (!!), we threw on our Catawba gear and headed to tailgate for the homecoming game.
And, of course, we had our traditional Mexican dinner after homecoming.
And THEN there was a Hanson concert. No, I’m not kidding, and yes, they’re still alive.
I sent my middle school partner in crime a text telling her I was attending a Hanson concert (part of the This Musical Ride Tour) last night. And what do ya know, the girl gets in a car, drives 2 hours, and meets me pre-concert for some dinner, drinks, and rekindled Hanson love.
And as we were shimmying our way to the front of the venue (helloooo, second row!), guess who we ran into?
Every second of the concert was awesome. Especially when they performed “I’ve Been Thinkin’ Bout Somethin’, mah fave.
No, wait. Especially the part when a girl(?) three times my height asked us to stop dancing and flinging our hair in her face.
I think she was just mad her pixie shag didn’t permit her to fling her hair around.
Just for you, Dana, Lisa-Marie (missed you) and Colleen…
A glorious clip of Give A Little (remember how obsessed we were with this last song Spring? ..and by “we” I mean “me”), MmmBop, and the tail end of Zac’s happy birthday cake smash to the face.
Speaking of cutting hair, can we write a petition to Zac to follow suit?
What? No one cares what Hanson looks like now that they have 7 kids between the three of them? Okay, fine. But just so you know, Isaac did meet his wife after spotting her in the third row of the crowd at a concert.
I was in the second row last night…
But seriously, the concert was fantastic. They played their old music and their great new stuff (download “Shout it Out” if you haven’t already.. and if you haven’t already, you’re not living).
And Pandora may presently be playing Hanson. I’m reliving every moment of the wonder that was my 12 year old happiness last night.
Needless to say, I’m having a fantastic Monday.
