Steve Miller Band & Journey Recap

May 28, 2014

WHOA.  First and foremost, I have to say a big, fat, huge THANK YOU to everyone who commented, emailed, texted, etc... yesterday about my bikini post.  I have never felt more loved by such a large group of people and I truly can't express how grateful I am for all  of you.  The fact that my journey has turned into something that inspires others is simply incredible. I'm just so, so thankful for this blog and the experiences I am able to have because of it.  On top of all of that, that single blog post got over 1,000 hits, which has never happened and I'm just astonished.
I heart all of you- really super a lot.

NOW.  For the concert recap.
Let me just be clear... by recap, I mean photo dump.
We took a lot (and I mean a lot) of selfies, because duh.
And we took concert pictures which, in my opinion, all look the same.

Before I load this post down with all of our crazy pictures, I will say that we had an amazing time.  The weather was perfect, we could see the stage clearly, and we had booze.  Plus, it was Journey and Steve Miller, so the music was amazing.  We got caught trying to smuggle in mini's through the side pocket of my purse, so we were forced to go "back to the car" (aka to the Applebees bathroom next door to the Amphitheater) and stuff them in our dresses.  We like to keep it classy, just saying. I stuck with water, but I figured I'd help a sister out and stuff some booze in my dress for my cousin.  Security... the struggle is real.

the girl that photobombed Ben.  I die.

they wouldn't let us have the bottle tops because "they could injure someone."
somehow I managed to successfully make both bottles last the entire night without spilling them or peeing in my pants.  that, my friends, is success.

boo thangs.

she's dealt with 28 years of my craziness and we're still best cousins.  love her!

this is true love people.

waiting... waiting... waiting... waiting... waiting... 

yep.  we were getting impatient. (it doesn't take long...)

Steve Miller Band!


everyone left me to go to the bathroom and I absolutely refused to leave my seat, so this happened.

this happened.
and then he said "I just burned the hell out of my thumb."
yes, that's because no one uses actual lighters anymore...
you have to appreciate his enthusiasm though.

aaaaand then this happened:

What can I say?  It was past my bedtime.  Like, way past... 
We had so much fun and I can't believe that in all the years Ben and I have been together, this was our first concert together!

P.S.  Did y'all know that the current lead singer for Journey is Asian?  Because I had heard that rumor and figured out quickly that it was true.  He looks similar to and sounds identical to Steve Perry.  Craziest thing ever.

Happy Wednesday, loves!
We're halfway there.


  1. Ok. So like...bottle caps can hurt people? Plastic bottle caps? WTF?

    And your selfies when everyone left you? I die!

    Also, Chris has burnt his thumb many times on a lighter. As to which I am sure you aren't surprised.

  2. Oh man what a great concert that must have been!!! Suuuper jealous!

  3. Lol I saw Journey a few years ago in Nashville and was shocked that the Asian sounds so similar lol apparently he was in a Journey cover band prior to being IN Journey!

    I went to that same amphitheater for my 21st b'day to see Rascal Flatts!

    Looks like y'all had a great time!

  4. It's been a long time since my fiance and I have been on a concert together(especially with our work schedules). I think we need to change that soon. I'm so glad that you had a good time.

  5. Journey is my all time fav band! I'm trying to convince a group to go with me to this concert when it comes up north but so far no one's that excited!

  6. I was there, too!!! It was by far one of the best concerts I have ever been to! And the confetti explosion at the end?! I died!
