Dierks Bentley Concert

If you have been following along for awhile you will be familiar with the fact that I have a knack for winning concert tickets (guess that's my hidden talent).  This was the second concert for the summer and I was pretty excited about this one.  I had the chance to see Jon Pardi and Dierks Bentley a few years ago at Stagecoach and they were pretty great so I was excited for the opportunity to see them again with Kyle.

We were pretty blessed to have an overcast night with a little bit of a breeze and no rain!
I kept it pretty casual with my favorite Redhead camo hat and a tee shirt, jeans and my boots.

Funny story we actually ended up in the wrong seats for about 30 minutes.
The owners of the seats came up and were like yeah I think you're in our seats, we looked and sure enough we were a whole section over...whoops 🤦‍♀️

Tenille Townes was the first act and we were both pretty excited to hear more from her.  She has a really interesting voice, very raspy and heartfelt.  My favorite song from her is "White Horse".

Jon Pardi was up next and y'all I just really like him.  He sounds like a mix of old country and new.  His set was my favorite, simple feel like a honkytonk.  I'm a fan for sure! 

Dierks brought it for sure.  He is just a good time.  You definitely forget how many of his songs have been such big hits.  He put on a show and it was just a good time.

This amphitheater is definitely one of my favorites, big but still intimate feeling. 

Dierks and Jon did a song together and of course it was great.  That's my favorite part of concerts when they do combos together or sing other songs you wouldn't expect.
Tenille came back out and sang a little Shania Twain and I sure wasn't mad about it.
It was a really fun night, I love country music so the chance to go hear it live and share it with my husband is a blessing.

10 Tip on How to Do Disney

Alright y'all I have been thinking about this post for a while to make sure I had all my tips squared away.  I have been pretty lucky to go to Disney quite a few times in the past couple of years and I feel like I have finally gotten the hang of it ;).  So from a fellow Disney lover here are my personal tips for doing Disney:

1. Use the My Disney Experience App!  This is a free app (and wifi is available in the parks for free) that has so many uses in the parks!  You can use it to check wait times, order food and schedule your fastpasses, check out maps and so much more!  Seriously it is a must-have for making the most of your Disney day.  

2. Ok so Fastpasses...USE THEM!!!  If you are staying on property you can book your passes up to 60 days in advance (30 for off-site guests).  Book them early!  Also if possible book all three of your choices for morning slots so you can use those and pick more as the day progresses.

3. If you can't get a FastPass for a ride you really want you can always ride it at the end of the night.  If you are in line right before park closes you are guaranteed to ride and it is typically a much shorter wait.  I have done this personally with Flight of Passage and only had to wait about 45 minutes compared to 3 hours.  

4. Don't wait in line for food!  I mentioned earlier you can use the My Disney Experience App to order food, y'all it is a time saver!  You order through the app and then skip the line and pick up your food.  Such a great trick and you are able to see exactly what you are ordering and how much it costs so it's easier for your budget.

5. Another food tip...DON'T spend money on water!  All counter service restaurants will give you free water, you just have to ask.  

6. Get cute pictures by asking the cast members (even photopass people) to take your picture with your own personal camera or phone.  They know what they are doing and it's free.

7. Save money and buy discounted Disney Gift Cards to pay for your trip at Sam's Club or Target (save 5% with your redcard).

8. Want to be in the park with little to no crowds?  Try an 8:00AM or earlier breakfast reservation.  This gets you in the park and once you are done eating you can roam around with little to no crowds.  This is the perfect time to get those shots in front of the castle without trying to fight everyone else.  Also breakfast is typically the least expensive meal so it is a great time to try Be Our Guest or a character meal.   

9. Wear Comfortable Shoes!!  You are walking ALL day, this is not the time to try out your cute new shoes, flip-flops or heels.  Be kind to your feet and throw on your comfy tennis shoes.  The average person walks 7-10 miles a day at Disney, your feet with thank you.  

10. Use a FREE TravelAgent.  My personal favorite is Trudy at Ears of Experience, she loves Disney just as much as I do!  Travel agents come at no additional costs but they can be a big saver for your vacation.  They have the inside information on the best deals and hookups and can be a big help in planning.  If you are unsure of how Disney works or you just want to let someone else handle it check them out for sure!  Honestly who wouldn't want someone else to plan their vacation??  

That wraps it up, hope these are helpful!  If you are planning a Disney trip in the near future let me know down below, I'm jealous!!  Also let me know your favorite Disney tip, I'm always looking for more!!  I'm dreaming of my next trip, Star Wars Land is opening soon and I would love to go with Kyle.  Hopefully we will see you real soon Disney!

Instagram Roundup

These weeks just keep speeding right on by, can you believe it is almost September?  School starts w this week at the college and kids are moving back in.  Traffic is picking up and Target is a little more crowded but that's alright, that means we are closer to fall!

One of my favorite verses, such a comfort to know that He knows everything and has a plan for you.  Trust is hard but it is easier when you think about the fact that God is over EVERYTHING and He knows it all, He is working it all for your good you just have to trust Him.

Why yes I did go into Hobby Lobby with the sole intention of taking an outfit picture in front of their wall of shame.  I've been on a graphic tee kick lately and I have found some really cute ones.  Also these sandals are crazy comfy and are my go-to!

My husband and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary last week.  Seems like just yesterday we were getting ready to get married and now here we are five years later.  I love doing life together.  We celebrated with a really delicious dinner out, I had pimento mac and cheese, grilled asparagus, bbq smothered chicken and a delicious cheesecake!

Yes I did in fact win more concert tickets...y'all I can't make this up.  It was pretty close to our anniversary so we just decided to use that as another celebration.  It was such a good concert, not too hot and everyone was really great!  Any night spent listening to country music is great in my book.
Gearing up for the Star Wars Land opening!  Anyone else super excited to experience it??
