Then yesterday, we left early for the concert b/c we were going to tailgate with some friends before it started. As we were packing the car and getting ready to leave the bottom fell outta the sky and that was pretty much how it was most of the day. The rain did stop for about two hours so we got to tailgate for a little while. Then as we were standing in line to go into the concert the rain started again. And I'm not talking about just a little rain; I am talking huge, hard raindrops with a little thunder and lightening thrown in there some too. We didn't let that stop us though. We had came prepared w/ our raincoats and were ready to play in the rain!
The concert was a lot of fun. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a HUGE Kenny Chesney fan. I go to his concert every year and I am even part of his fan club...yes, I am that bad! Kenny is an amazing performer and his concerts are always full of energy. He played from about 9:30pm until about 11:30pm. He also usually always has a surprise guest come out on stage with him as well. This year it was Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland. She and Kenny sang her song "Stay". Wow, that girl can sing! I did a lot of screaming while Kenny was on stage and my voice has been pretty hoarse all day because of that. But I can't not scream for my man, haha! Anyway, we took lots of pics and I will try to put some up soon.
So yes, it was a jam packed weekend but all totally worth the little sleep that I got. Did anyone else do anything fun and exciting? Was anyone else at the concert?

As long as I can remember I have loved cowboys. I've always said I would marry me one one day. You're probably thinking where in the world is all of this coming from. Well, Morgan found this blog the other day and I think that we both have become a bit obsessed with it. There is a section on the blog where this lady tells the story of her and her Marlboro Man as she calls him. Ladies, let me just tell you...it is magnificent! You must read the stories...she has put them into chapters. Anyway, so since I've been reading her blog I have been reminded once again why I've always loved cowboys, why I would love to marry a cowboy, and well my mind pretty much just can't stop wanderin.
I grew up in a small town here in GA my entire life. My guy friends growing up weren't exactly cowboys...more like good 'ol country boys w/ a little "red" thrown in here and there. They were great and I loved them all. But in my mind a cowboy would only do. I guess it was my love of country music at such an early age that introduced me to what I thought at the time was "the cowboy". I can remember having the biggest crush on Clay Walker. Man, he was/is beautiful! I'm sure many people might consider country music singers real cowboys and who knows some may be. But the kind of cowboy that I've always loved are the rodeo cowboys and the hardworking cowboys who live & work on a ranch. There is just something about them. They are rugged, tough, hardworking, and usually quite the gentleman.
Rodeo cowboys have always been and always will be my first love though. I have always loved rodeos. The excitement of watching the cowboys ride their horse as fast as they can to rope a calf or to get their position just right so that the bull does not buck them off gets my heart racing every time. I can remember a rodeo that my mama and daddy took my sister and I to when we were young. Oh I had so much fun! So yes it all started at a very young age. :) Two years ago I dated a rodeo cowboy for a minute. He was actually my childhood crush that never really ended. So you can only imagine the excitement for me on our first date and dates there after. It ended up not lasting very long; he was pretty content with his life as a young bachelor and wasn't looking for commitment any time soon. Sure, I was disappointed but okay with it all in the end. And my love for rodeo cowboys still remains.
So yeah, who knows, maybe it is in God's plan for me to marry a cowboy one day. I pray diligently for my future husband. I pray that he is a man of God, a family man, a great supporter, a wonderful father to our future kids, a leader, a hard worker, a challenger, a fun loving guy, and my best friend. And if God decides that he will also be a cowboy then hey, that's just the cherry on top. ;)
I had a great time making them the night before. I decided I would color the frosting all different bright neon colors...purple, pink, and lime green. Then I topped them with yummy sprinkles. I love to cook for others and I especially love to see the smile that comes to their face when they are surprised! Morgan is such a great friend. So I just had to do something special for her :)

Back in the day we loved to dress up, make up dances, and sing until we could sing no more. I found these pics the other day and thought you might get a kick outta 'em as much as I did. Here is a photo shoot of our Kris Kross days...
This is me and my sister, Peyton...GANGSTA This is Amanda and I
And yes, this is me, believe it or not :)
We had some amazing times back in the day w/ plenty of memories to last a lifetime!

Yes, you guessed it...Sloppy Joe's & Curly Fries! They were both very yummy! Not very figure friendly but hey after today I said who cares. :p
Then, as I was cleaning up the kitchen I got such a great laugh at my step-dad, Ron. He is such a funny guy and he makes me laugh a lot. He was watching the Olympic trials, I think that's what it was. Well, needless to say he definitely gets into it...this was him as some guy was just about to set a world record...
I wish I would've thought to video it b/c just hearing him say "unbelievable", "that is just unbelievable", "McCall, can you believe it" would have made this so much better. The Runald is a very funny man and I sure do love him!
Well, after that I decided that it was time to spend some time w/ God. So I sprayed myself down w/ Off so that the mosquitoes didn't eat me alive and I went outside to get in The Word. What a great time it was. Being outside surrounded by all of God's creation was awesome but just simply sitting and reading and listening made everything just a little bit better...
His beauty is breathtaking and His timing is perfect. God completely blows my mind. One thing He is reminding me of right now is that He even speaks through silence. I am so excited about where God is leading me and where I am going.
So at the end of the day, I'm happy to say...Satan, you did not ruin my day and once again you did NOT win!!!!
