Sequins and Sea Breezes: Weekending

Weekending

6/08/2015


Happy Monday lovelies! Just as a warning, this is going to be a very picture heavy post! Sorry, I'm not sorry. Kerri and I took about a thousand pictures at the concert on Friday night and I seriously can't choose just a few to put up so I'm just going to put up all my favorites. I had quite a busy weekend although I failed as a blogger and only took two pictures Saturday. Don't worry, I took enough Friday night to make up for it :) Linking up with the lovely Biana for my weekend recap!

So Friday after work I went to a concert (duh!) at House of Blues. Downtown Disney is currently under heavy construction so getting in was a bit of a pain but once I finally parked I ran over to HOB to meet Kerri to get our tickets and VIP passes.We got there around 4:30 but couldn't go in until 5:30 so we decided to grab a beer and wait in line. For awhile it was sunny and melt your face off hot and then this rolled in...

Fun times. We kept hoping it would blow over but no such luck! They ended up letting us on the porch at HOB to get out of the crazy storm which was pretty lucky since it got pretty bad! When they let us in for the VIP experience we got lucky again and ended up scoring front row spots! The VIP experience allowed us to get into the venue early and watch a private performance by Dashboard Confessional (which was a bit more like a sound check) and a Q&A session.

Yeah, we totally had a moment while he was singing Dusk & Summer. I died. After the VIP performance we had to wait quite a bit before the actual concert. Augustana was supposed to be the opening act but "unforeseen circumstances" happened and they had to cancel. *Update* I just found out through social media that Augustana cancelled due to their bassist getting struck by lightning in the same storm Kerri and I got stuck in! Eek! Thoughts and prayers are with him and the band while he recovers.  Then finally (after what seemed like FOREVER) Chris Carrabba came back out gave another awesome performance minus a few incidents with the guy who switches out his guitars in between songs. 


Dashboard performed for a little over an hour and performed some of my favorite songs. I swear my heart melted when he performed Stolen. Yes ladies, Chris is just as hot in person as he is in pictures and videos. After Dashboard was done there was about a 30-45 minute break before Third Eye Blind came out. Kerri and I officially realized how old we are during this concert. 


Third Eye Blind played an 18 song set, which was totally crazy! They were amazing in concert but I'm pretty sure they were not sober during it. Drugs are bad kids. Oh and their bassist is ridiculously hot and was directly in front of us during the entire concert. Hello eye candy. We didn't end up getting done until after midnight, it was a looonnnggg day but totally worth it! Oh and did I mention Mr. Hot TEB Bassist (Alex LeCavalier) liked my photo on Instagram? :)


Saturday I ran some errands before heading to Tampa for a friend's wedding. I'll keep the rest of this short and sweet since I've already written a novel! It's SO crazy to see someone you've known for 17 years grow up and get married. So glad I got to celebrate with them on their big day and wishing them all the best! FYI, my alcohol tolerance has gone WAY down. 

Sunday I pretty much ran errands and watched movies. Nothing overly exciting but I needed a day to unwind after my busy, late nights on Friday and Saturday. Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!

  4. you looked absolutely gorgeous at the wedding! glad you had such a great time at the concert, what a bummer abut third eye blind! i saw one of my favourite bands ever when i was like 19, i had waited years because i had to be over 18 and they rarely came to Oz.. anyway, the lead singer was high as a kite and barely performed and it was miserable. it ruined my love for them lol.
