a Strait friday night

So this past weekend we made the trek across the entire state of WI to St. Paul, MN for "The Cowboy Rides Away Tour".

One of the husband and I's dream to see The King live in concert. I surprised him during Christmas with tickets. Can finally check this one off the 30 Before 30 list.

Outfit for the night: Rue 21 dress, black tights and cowboy boots.
We had our first VIP experience, and let me tell you it was worth every penny. For dinner they catered BBQ chicken, brisket, macaroni salad and cobbler. I guess we are at a country concert, and we were not complaining :) It was delicious!

The King (George Strait) live was amazing! He could have honestly played for 24 hours straight and it still wouldn't have been long enough.
Although the alcohol prices were not fun. $10.00 for a mix drink, $8.50 for wine and $8.00 for a beer. Yikes.

None the less, the husband and I had a great time. Singing, dancing and drinking all Friday night long. Was a great experience to share together. One we will never forget.


  1. HOW FUN! I am super JEALOUS! I do agree, beer prices are crazy at events like that. We went to a hockey game last week, 7 bucks. And I am finding the food to-die-for! I've heard Zac Brown Band has an awesome food tailgate before hand. Glad you had a good time :)

  2. I LOVE your outfit. Good choice. And that sounds like the perfect day!! So glad you did this! And a little jealous. :)

  3. Love love your outfit! It looks like an amazing time.

  4. How awesome is that, I bet you had a blast. You look beautiful my dear!!!!

  5. I'm so glad you guys had fun! I thought about you when I was getting ready Friday night for a concert here in Georgia. Remembered you all had this concert and instantly got jealous!

  6. So fun! And I love your cowgirl boots- too cute!
