Weekend Recap: KISS, Football, Fun

Weekend Recap: KISS, Football, Fun

Well, hello friends!  How was your long weekend?  I hope you had some fun and had a chance to relax. I had a great mix of excitement and down time this weekend.  Just what I needed.

Friday, I took mom to Tulsa to see one of HER favorite bands (quite a switch from me dragging her to tons of concerts my whole life!) – KISS.

We saw a super fan that was decked out before the show.  When I asked mom if she wanted a picture, she said “I guess.”  and I said “I need blog material!” ha!  So here ya go!

Def Leppard were also performing….and I actually had so many thoughts during the concert that I took notes on my phone during the show. The show was GREAT.  They put on a fun show (and even though I didn’t really know the music) I enjoyed it.  It was fun to share it with mom.  But here were some of my thoughts during the show….

  • These guys are old.
  • Def Leppard are so clearly British.  Every one of them was wearing a Union Jack, the drum head was a Union Jack, and they were uber proud of that.  We get it.
  • These bands are ALL guitars (and a drummer).  I sort of missed some piano or something.
  • Def Leppard’s drummer has one arm.  It was unreal.  In between bands, we found out he lost his arm in a car accident and continued drumming with a special drum kit.
  • There was SO much leather in the arena.
  • Fandom knows no age or gender.  I’ve seen people rock out and freak out and lose their minds at Hanson concerts (and other bands before)…but there were men and women of all ages embracing their fandom.
  • The people going up and down the aisles to get more beer was like a parade. A beer parade.
  • Paul Stanley thew SO many picks into the crowd.  Like he would play with a guitar pick for like three strums, throw it out, and get another one.  Wish I was up close to catch one!
  • Paul Stanley was boogie-ing around in his 5 inch platforms like they were slippers.  The man can MOVE.  He was my spirit animal.

We got home SUPER late Friday night, so Saturday was pretty chill.

We slept in late, had breakfast out, and then headed to my parents’ house to watch the game.  Oh Razorbacks.  You were doing pretty good…and then lost it.  I hope we get it together this season.

Sunday we had church and then we went to Tyler’s grandpa’s farm.  We are getting into a routine there.  I take a nap in the living room with his cousin Kelsey while everyone else goes outside to shoot. 🙂  Hey…I can’t miss my Sunday nap!  The Lee family arsenal in the back of  the Prius….we spent lots of time hitting targets at grandpa’s.

This weekend was GREAT with a third day for Labor Day.  I played it pretty cool – helped a friend build her website, cleaned, did laundry, cooked, and spent a few hours with Lauren at the lake.  Gotta get one last summer sunburn. 🙂
