Concert

Last night we headed to Atlanta for a night out with Clint and Cindy. We had gotten tickets to see Blake Shelton in concert at Wild Bill's. When Heath told me we were going I though, hmmm...Blake Shelton, OK this might be fun, I like some of his songs. I was more excited about the fact that Heath and I might actually get to dance, it has been well over a year and half since we have been dancing, maybe longer. So I was happy to go. It turned out to be one of the best concerts I have ever been to.

We got there around 9:30 and the line was wrapped around the building just to get in and it was SOOO COLD! Thankfully, the line moved fast. Before long we were in, then we had to find our reserved table. We had really good seats but, when we got there, there were some women at our table. We had to get a bouncer to make them move and they were not happy about it. The place was packed, there was NO CHANCE of getting a dance in!

I had forgotten how long it has been since I have been in a bar. Brought back old memories. I forgot that a little cleavage is an open invitation to get hit on, beer tastes better under neon lights, and that the best way to close down a bar is with ACDC's "You Shook Me All Night Long". Even though we didn't get to dance Heath and I had so much fun.

The concert was awesome. Of course, he sang his most popular songs but also did some 80's country, which we LOVE. Some of the 80's stuff he sang was; Tight Fittin' Jeans, I Love A Rainy Night, Drivin' My Life Away...he even sang Centerfold. (who doesn't love that!) I sang and yelled so loud my throat was sore today. That was the most fun we have had in awhile.

We didn't get home until 3:15 this morning and I had to get up at 8:00 for work. I think I still had buzz when I got up, lol. I am super tired now so I think I will take a nap. If you ever get the chance to see him in concert you should go, it worth it.

WWJD about blueberries!

Just another normal conversation between the two of us...

We had just made a Creme' Brulee and were getting ready to eat it...

Heath: I'm gonna put blueberries on the creme brulee
Britt: No! Dont! There aren't many left and I want them for my breakfast
H:What? Don't be greedy with the blueberries
B: I'm not greedy but there aren't many left and I want them for my cerel
H: You know what Jesus says about being greedy
B: Jesus didn't say anything about being greedy
H: Yes he did.....He's against it!

We split the blueberries in half, so we were both happy!

Lucky Seven!?!

January 22, 2002, just a little past midnight. That's when it happened...I crossed the line and officially became a Georgia Peach. We drove into Georgia that night, which happened to be Heath's Birthday, at the state line we got out and took a picture by the "Welcome to Georgia" sign. Heath has me slung over his shoulder. He says its the best birthday present he has ever gotten.

Georgia is very different than Texas, we are in the deep south here! Over the past seven years I have learned the Georgian ways. I though I might enlighten you with a few, seven to be exact. One for each year I have been here.

1. A package store is in fact a liquor store, you cannot mail a package here or buy wrapping paper.

2. Women carry pocketbooks, not purses.

3. When someone tells you they are "ill" they are really just in a bad mood it doesn't mean they are sick.

4. Greens, Fat Back, Neck bone and Ho Cakes are all soul food, people actually eat this stuff. Let me be more specific...Some people eat this, I do not!

5. Bush Hoggin' as scary as it sounds really just means clearing land.

6. The word Cherry Blossom takes on a whole new meaning in the spring, this is referring to an entire week when the whole town stops and EVERYTHING goes pink. I actually like this one, its very pretty.

7. Last but not least...The Redneck Games...people come from all over to witness and participate in an array of white trash Olympic-like games.

Deep down inside I will always be that Texas girl, but at least now I look like I know what the heck people are talking about.
