Houston.... we're one step closer to you!

Last weekend we went to Houston to visit my brother and friends. We got tickets to the rodeo to see Brad Paisley perform and had a ball! Molly stayed at our friend Scott and Ashley's house with their kids and enjoyed a nice (and crazy) evening with the babysitters. It was nice to get out and have fun as adults (it's been a while for Blake and I).


When we showed up Tyler (my brother) told us that someone gave him suite tickets while he was waiting for us outside. These tickets were $150 a pop and included dinner. Blake and I decided to check it out and boy was it a disaster! We showed up on the "eighth floor" feeling pretty important and were directed to our box seats. Someone met us at the door and served us complimentary drinks and introduced us to the Texas BBQ buffet. As we are shoveling food onto our plate a man greets us with a confused look and asked us who we are... "Are you Bill's kids?" "Bill's client?" Turns out the person who gave Tyler the tickets had a meeting with this man and ditched at the last second. Blake and I were standing in the company's box enjoying their food and drinks. Blake wanted to go along with it, but I bee-lined it to the door with my plate of BBQ. Here I am racing to the elevator with Blake left in the dust wondering where the heck his wife went. I was SOOOO embarrassed! We rejoined our party in the nose-bleeds and had a great rest of the evening.




We took Zoe with us and Tyler (Ashley and Scott's 3 year-old) locked himself in her crate. He even stole his mom's Diet Coke and brought it in with him... cutie

How was the concert? Jamie & I are thinking about going when he comes in August. Although Jamie has voiced a concern that I might try to run off with Brad...
