Concert 2014

I was talking to Sean a few weeks ago about how I really wanted to go to a concert before the summer is over. I was really just talking and not expecting anything. A few days later Sean advised that Rihanna and Eminem were going to be performing in MetLife and he booked us tickets.

That's the thing I often find myself loving about Sean. He is always listening even when it may appear that he is not.

We went last Saturday and we had the best time. They both put on a great show but if I may add one thing to that line, Eminem stole the show! He is a performer who really feels his music and it came out that night. He is also very engaging and I loved when he talked about his past drug habits and how he is working hard on not turning down that road again. I truly wish him the best!

Now on to our seats ... complete nose bleed seats, haha. And even those costs $90 bucks a pop! But it was such a great time so I'm glad we went!

I don't have any great pictures to share during the concert because you can't take in "good" cameras and my phone ones just did not come out. So here's a few I took before the show and one at the show.

Whenever this bridge comes in view I get all giddy inside.

We're almost there!
This is what I do when I'm getting bored on a road trip ... I take pictures of the road!

Sean did a great job taking blurry pictures of me that night ;)
But you can see just how excited I was to be there.

This week is flying.
I cannot believe that tomorrow is already Thursday!
I hope that you all are having great weeks.

The last of Jersey Shore.

And let the people say Amen.

Musikfest 2014.

Annually, Musikfest is held in our town for one week.

Musicians (big names, small names, no names) arrive and perform their hearts out.
It is a pretty big deal because people from all over attend and during that week traffic is horrible.
I was stuck in traffic for 45 minutes all that week. Fun, fun. Okay, not really..

But Musikfest was!

We went last Friday night and Saturday evening.
Friday night, I did not take any pictures because I forgot to take my camera. And these pictures are not too good because I was walking and snapping which is not ideal, so I apologize if some of these photos are not in focus.

{Watching a performance - It was neat because everywhere you turned there is/was a band performing for free!}

I think I should let you know that I also fell in love. With corn..
I'm telling you it was the best corn I've ever tasted in my life.

Although we went to Musikfest on Friday I purposely went again on Saturday because I really, really wanted this corn!

The corn is basically brushed with some butter, then sprinkled with paprika and parmesan cheese.
You can add extra paprika and parmesan cheese if you want.
Best believe I did. I'm serious, so, so good. Too bad that I have to wait a whole year to taste that deliciousness again!

Also, this makes me laugh because usually I would go for the funnel cake and cotton candy but this time it was for corn.
Odd.

They were awesome, wish I could remember their band's name.
They had us all dancing which is very hard not to do when you hear some sweet reggae.

After all the walking about and enjoying music we took a break for dinner.
I had an amazing lobster ravioli that I want to eat right now.

And then it was back to enjoy some more bands until dark.
This is the first time in forever that I REALLY don't want summer to end.
