California Dreamin'--pt.2

Nick and I made a quick trip to California (again) this past weekend to visit my Uncle Scott & Aunt Patty and to see the Tim McGraw/Kenny Chesney concert. To say that our weekend was a blast would be a huge understatement.

We got into town Friday afternoon and headed over to Scott & Patty's GORGEOUS house in LA. I'm so sad I didn't get any pictures of their place..we loved it there!
That night they took us out to a nice restaurant called ZENGO in Santa Monica. It was a mix of Latin and Asian food.. sounds strange but it was so good! The best part about the restaurant was the location. We sat on the rooftop over looking the street and cute little shops below. Fancy. I totally thought I was going to see the Kardashians walk through the door.



 After our yummy dinner we took a stroll down on 3rd Street through the plaza and walked by all the shops. We saw some very crazy interesting people and street performers...even a skateboarding bulldog! (((I was looking for Rob & Big everywhere hoping it was Meaty riding the board.)))

We love Uncle Scott

..And beautiful Aunt Patty

Then they took us to their favorite (and according to the long lines, EVERYONE in California's favorite) frozen yogurt spot-- Pinkyberry.  It was sooo good.

The next morning we got up early and headed to Six Flags-Magic Mountain to meet my mom and little brother & sister for a day of roller coasters. 

What a fantastic theme park. I haven't been there since I was probably 10 and I forgot how fun and huge all the rides are. We had to leave the park around 2:30 for our concert so we are planning on going back soon for a full day of fun. Who wants to come with us?? :)

Goliath. The name of the rollercoaster speaks for itself. HUGE.

This was taken right before the ride "Tatsu". I literally thought this would be our last picture before we died on that ride. Crazy. P.S. I know we look rough--It was a very hot and humid day.
We left the park around 2:00 hoping to stop by the house to change and freshen up before the concert at 4:30 but thanks to the super convenient LA traffic that didn't happen. We had to go straight from Six Flags to the concert. Gross. So we stopped at a Carl's Jr. to eat, where I tried desperately to comb my fingers through my messy hair and fix my sweaty make up in their nasty little bathroom. Lovely. 

But we made it to the concert just in time and once we were there I didn't think twice about my ugly hair or boy-ish outfit. All I could think about was watching my two favorite country guys sing their hearts out while holding the hand of my very own (and #1 favorite) country guy. I had the time of my life.

Our seats weren't the best but I didn't mind. We had a perfect view of the jumbo screen and I could hear those beautiful voices perfectly and that's all I cared about.
Tim McGraw ♥

**My favorite part of the concert was when Tim came back for his encore and sang my absolute favorite song--Cowboy in Me.** Would you judge me if I told you I teared up a little? (I would post the video but I'm just singing & cheering way too loud...embarrassing.)

Nick left during a little break and came back with this...

Tim McGraw t-shirt! I love it. My husband is just too sweet. ♥ ♥


Kenny Chesney!

>>>Please try to ignore my singing.. this was the only video where I'm not sounding like a complete fool the entire time.<<<

Top 3 best nights of my life. I think I was the happiest girl in the whole stadium.
{{Like I said, we had the best weekend ever! Thanks again to my wonderful Aunt & Uncle for letting us stay with them and taking us out for a night on the town. Thanks to my mom and little siblings for sharing a fun day with us at Magic Mountain. Thanks to Tim & Kenny for putting on my dream concert. And BIG thanks to my amazing husband for taking me to it. :) }}
