What a weekend!
Friday was date night and it was very nice. My girls did try planning their activities on that night and I had to put my foot down. It never ceases to amaze me that you tell them something and it goes through their head out the other ear. Tom and I went to Red Lobster, the casino and just had a very nice night. We DID receive a couple of text from the girls "she won't leave me alone!!" teenagers.
But Saturday.....Oh Saturday. My middle one, Kate LOVES ColdPlay, the group. So we had bought her concert tickets to go see them. Tom and I, although familiar with some of their songs did not know as many as she (she memorized their albums)
Words cannot possibly describe this event. When we drove two and a half hours to get there they give you this bracelet. It's a simple bracelet and they have signs that say "put on the bracelet, it's part of the show" No one knows what these things do and I just hoped that they didn't blow my hands off with it..anyway you put this thing on and we watched the first two acts. Not bad, kind of plain and two hours long.
At 9ish the lights go off and my daughters start freaking out. Ear to ear grins that were totally contagious. Then out of no where 18,000 different lights light up the room. It was our bracelets and OMG it looked like a Christmas snow globe!! Then the lasers came, and the stage lit up and confetti kept flying up out of the floor filling the stadium!! Then inflatables (yes infalatebles) would just appear in our rows and disaaprear.
In a nutshell, even if you don't know who ColdPlay was....even if you didn't like their music....it was by far the best freaking concert I've ever seen. You couldn't help but to be mesmerized by everything around you. The lights were intoxicating and the sound simply breathtaking. It turns out I do like their music. The two hours that they played went by so fast that my only regret was that it ended. I remember thinking at the encore, "the only way this show would be perfect is if they played 'Tears of a Waterfall'"....last song.
perfect. simply perfect
justice cannot be done with a picture.
Well, today begins a new Monday and I'm beginning a new page, a new month and a new goal...which is the old goal.
I just broke it down a little. I need to stay focused on the prize, which is now plastered all over the background of my page. I either want that dress of the florwal springie one....
and a pair of shoes...pink.
But first, I have a run this weekend. Just me. No kids, no hubby just me to try and see what I can do. I have to buy a pair of running shoes though as my old ones are what.....a year and a half old? Shins are starting to hurt with them. Anyone have Rykas? Going to get me a pair of those.
So May Day May Day!!
