I'm So Excited!!

I just had to share the news with y'all!! The other night I saw a commercial for Harrah's Cherokee Casino in NC & Big & Rich is going to be there on May 28th. Well, I asked hubby if we could go figuring that since we are broke the answer would be no. Well, he never gave me an answer. He just called me a few minutes ago & he got 2 tickets on the floor for the show!!! He was on the phone with the lady & she said they were sold out. Well, someone called & cancled while he was on the phone with her & he got the tickets. He told me that since we didn't exchange gifts for our anniversary that this is our present. I can't wait!! I have a wonderful hubby!!

There was a Memorial Day pow wow the year we went to Cherokee for our anniversary. You could probably check with the museum to verify , if interested. Pow Wows are fun.

Your husband is very thoughtful. Mine just started getting that way, and it only took 20 years

I'll check that out Rainee, thanks!


Texasgirl, we had a tree frog for a couple of days(we caught it & let it go) & the kids named it Cowboy Troy! Both of my kids know Save A Horse by heart. I love Big & Rich too & had told hubby earlier this year if he ever took me to see them I would be the happiest girl on earth! Well, guess what? I'm well beyond happy!! Mine can be thoughtful on occasion but most of the time forgets how.

I understand completely!
I got a new wedding ring for my 20th. I've had 2 and they were both stolen by "so called friends". I haven't had one for 15 years. We couldn't afford it. He is also the kind that would rather give me money to get whatever for myself, b-days, x-mas etc.. this time, he went and got it all by himself and surprised me. He is mellowing in his 40's.

LOL texasgirl! My hubby took me to pick out my Mother's Day present this year! That was fine with me but I like to be surprised on occasion too. I don't get many surprises from mine but when I do, they usually make me totally speechless (well, at least for a few seconds )!

Thanks pdswife! Unfortunately we aren't going to get to stay the night but I don't care. I'm just happy to be going with hubby. The show starts at 6 or so & he said we'd go up early enough to look around & stuff.

I'm so excited for you. I love Big & Rich. Their performance on the Country Music Award Show was amazing. I'm sure they'll have one heck of a stage setting and show. Let us know how it was.
I haven't been to a concert for gosh probably 6 years.............ZZ Top. I remember when I first started listening to country music.....my gosh about about 12 years ago I was in awe of Vince Gill. I heard he was coming to our local Arena and I went there in the middle of the night with lounge chair and blanket in hand and camped out. I was like the 4th person in line. I was able to get 2nd row seating and was one happy girl. Funny but I don't particularly care for his music anymore :)
Now if Keith Urban came...........you bet I'd be camping out again!

Sizz, I saw the CMA show & it was great! I'll never forget the first time I saw them on TV. I was laughing so hard I was crying!! They we're just so outragous & diffrent from what I was used to. But, I have loved them ever since! The only concerts I have ever been to were Christian groups & I was with our church's youth group at the time(about 10-15 yrs. ago). I've never even stepped foot inside a casino before either, so I have no clue what to expect.
