Weekend Update - Brad Paisley

My weekend was.... AMAZING!! Filled with country music, family, friends, good food, cold drinks, and the warmth of a bonfire. Here's how it went::

FRIDAY::
Attended my 4th Brad Paisley concert at Blossom Music Center with my Gram! It started with an amazing lunch at Luigi's in Akron, OH. I got the spaghetti with garlic and oil (remember, I don't like marinara sauce) and it was delish! My Gram built her own veggie pizza, which she loved. I enjoyed a Seagram's while my Gram had a small glass of wine. Our waitress was great -so nice and friendly, and provided wonderful service. We're definitely going back! And that helps me with #13 on my 101- Eat at 10 new restaurants!


 Then we made our way to the concert, which was phenomenal. We cooled down with a Mike's Hard Lemonade before heading inside..

Before the actual concert new comers Jana Kramer and Love&Theft performed. Both were very good!! First up was Scotty McCreery. And I have to say, he did a lot better than I expected. I really enjoyed his performance. Next was The Band Perry, whom I saw last year too. I thought they did a lot better this year than last year. It, again, was really well done. Then came Mr. Brad Paisley -my favorite singer. He did sooo good! And such a good, genuine guy he is too. He even brought Colt McCoy on stage to help him finish singing "I'm Still A Guy," did I mention Mr. Paisley's favorite NFL team is the Cleveland Browns? Ohhh yeaaa!! Go Brownies!! This finishes #23 on my 101: Go to a concert -check! Along with #62: See a country artist I haven't seen yet (Scotty McCreery, Love & Theft, Jana Kramer) -check!



SATURDAY::
We went over to Randy and Melissa's house for a cookout, and my dad/Brian helped Randy cut down a few dead/over-grown trees. It really opened up the front of their house -now it looks even better! Melissa was even considerate enough to ask what I'd like to "eat" at their house, she made baked beans and bought pasta salad -just so I could eat with them! Ain't she a doll?! It was all soo delish!
Melissa running with the Flag. The boys. Randy go iced. The trees cut down. Randy/Brian on the shed.

Then with all the wood and branches from the trees we had a bonfire at my house. Great friends, cold drinks, and a warm fire to me makes for the perfect night. Just what I needed!

 SUNDAY::
Father's Day I just recovered from the bonfire. My brother's and I got my dad a gift card to Gander Mtn. so he can pick out a brand-new smoker! He's been needing a new one, but he's so picky that we figured it'd be best for him to choose his own. He loved it! 




life is good.

    1. hahaha I was never a Colt McCoy fan myself. So I too am glad we got Weeden -maybe he can lead us to victory (and by victory I mean over .500 record haha)

  2. Visiting from Weekend Update. Sounds like a super fun weekend!! I'm not a Brown's fan, but now that they drafted our QB Brandon Weeden (OSU alum here!) I'm cheering for them all the way!
