Where did the time go...

Oh My Goodness...where have I been? Well, let's see. I've been to 3 concerts in 6 days, working full time and over time, and left town for 2 days. It feels like forever since I've been able to blog! Sorry...hope you didn't miss me too much. ;o) I will get back to checking your blogs and catching up on my blog reading very soon.

So Thursday night I went to the Def Leopard, Poison and Cheap Trick Concert. DH was still not feeling well so my sis-n-law went with me and we sang and danced the night away. Everyone squealed when Brett Michaels came out. I think he is more popular now that his "Rock of Love" reality TV show has been on. He did look good though.

And Def Leopard was AWESOME! They never let you down. It was kinda funny to sit and people watch. What a difference in people attending versus the Nickelback concert. This time everyone had long hair, wore all black, and much more drunk and fighting. I felt like I was transported back in time looking at all the "Big Hair" wannabes.

Then Labor Day Weekend we traveled to Lake Tahoe and saw Chickenfoot. They are the Supergroup with Sammy Hagar, Chad Smith, Joe Satriani and Michael Anthony. It was awesome. DH made that show, and we had such a good time. We went with a group of friends and had 8 hotel rooms, about 20 of us. We partied on the hotel balcony before hand, rocked on thru the concert (which I discovered if you have enough Tequila in you, makes you brave enough to push through the crowds until your 10 people back from the stage!) and then we ran to Sammy's Cantina and partied there until they came out there and sang/played for a bit. Which I might add I was not feeling anything at this point and shoved my way through 3 fights on the dance floor to get all the way to the front of the stage there! :o) And managed to get some girl to buy me drinks! LOL you gotta work it!

Then about 1:30 am, there was about 8 of us left in our group who hadn't turned in yet when we decided that we were pretty hungry because we hadn't eaten dinner and we knew one helluva hangover was waiting for us if we didn't. So we set off walking down the streets of Tahoe to find a place to eat. We walked about 3 blocks and found a Subway and 7-eleven open. So there we are at 2:00 AM eating and being drunk! LOL. We stumbled to our rooms around 3AM.
Good Friends and Good Drinks!

I can not even begin to tell you the last time I relaxed and let loose like that. I had such a good time. I laughed, danced, sang, made new friends, loved old friends, giggled and acted like a fool and loved every minute of it. And Lordy was I drunk.

So here are a few picks we took. A few came out blurry. Not sure if it was because I was drunk and taking pictures or because I was dancing and taking pictures. LOL!

You are right. Bret Michaels' fame definitely sky-rocketed after ROL. I even started to think he's kinda cool, and I'm not a big hair band kinda fan. LOL
