This weekend we went to another concert. This time it was for the Avett Brothers and we had awesome seats. Allow me to make you a tad jealous.
We had pit tickets and it was the jam. I could have been spit on and I would have found that acceptable – if by the band not by any of the surrounding hipsters. The Mister took a hundred pictures and we both have videos on Vine.
I decided to take out a 20-year-old purse.
I believe I got it when I was 10, maybe 9. It was my first Coach bag. I got a Dooney and Bourke bag before it which I still have too. If we ever have a daughter, I’ll let her have it. It’s lines are not as classic, so I don’t think I can get away with carrying it. They’re both in great shape. Here I am being weird with it.
I was introduced to Nudify. Get that app right now. I can’t stop. Here’s an example photo of me with my girl JBKH.
This is how rumors get started.

Friday, The Mister and I went to The Black Keys concert with one of our friends. We had General Admission tickets and it was awesome.
I was quite hungover the next day. Here’s some evidence of my good time.
I adore my friend and have known him since my Freshman year of college. We reconnected a few years ago after finding out we were both in Nashville. (Thanks to Mr. Zuckerberg.) I love him and would never show what’s under that circle. I wasn’t the only one that had drank too much. These were just the pre-show drinks at Bridgestone between the three of us.
We had been drinking before this and we didn’t stop either.
We went to the headless friend’s birthday party Saturday night. I drank only Sprite. Beyond going out we played it fairly lazy. Sunday, we walked around the yard and worked on a plan for planting some boxwoods we purchased two weeks ago and the back yard.
I’ve kept the back yard from you because it’s embarrassing. We have a potentially awesome area of the yard that looks awful. Really awful. The previous owners put in a retaining wall poorly. It appears to a great example of a DIY gone wrong. The brick walls have mostly fallen down. We started cleaning it up and quickly became overwhelmed at the scope of the project. We think we finally know what to do and how to fix it. We loved this patio space when we bought the house. We had big plans for a fire pit, big chairs and parties. We want to make it right. This is what it looks like now.
The Mister is working on the space this week. It will not be anywhere near done but we are setting a lofty goal of having the major work done by July. There are some other major projects that are being done at the same time. It’s going to be hectic summer. However, it’s gonna be great and I can’t wait to share it with you.
Be good. Be safe. Be lovely.

…for Adele. I have loved her since the first time I heard a note come from her and waited for 19 to come out. I played the heck out of it and it bothered me whenever someone did not know of her. I’d tell them all, “Just buy it. You’ll thank me later.” Of course, I anxiously waited for 21 and I’ve been playing the heck out of it too.
When tickets went on sale for her Nashville show, I didn’t purchase them because I was supposed to be on the road. Plus, I wasn’t sure who would want to come with me. Turns out, it appears I told too many people how awesome she is and now there are no tickets available. She’s now rescheduled for October 10 and I desperately want to go. So, I wish nothing but the best for myself.
For now, until I find someone who needs a plus one or has one available, I’ll just keep playing this video of Adele from Sunday’s VMAs.
She inspires me to sing again. It’s been a long time.
