As it turned out, we wouldn't have been able to do our Girls Night then after all. Matt lost his dad on Friday evening and he needed Kelli more than the rodeo did.
So, my first Girls Night was with Robin, Stacy and Kelley for the Bruno Mars concert.
I will admit that I had no idea who Bruno Mars was. I had seen him on an awards show or two, but if you had asked me to name a song of his...I would have had no clue!
I will also admit that I can't stand to go to a concert where I have no idea of who I am seeing. So I did what anyone else would do...I bought his CD. Let's just say that I was a little bit afraid to attend the concert after listening to the CD!
Bruno arrived to the stage in Big Texas Style. It is hard to see in the photo, but those are longhorns mounted to the front of that limousine!
This picture was toward the end of the concert when the lights went low and nearly everyone in the place lit up their cell phones. It was a record breaking Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo attendance of 75,175 people. And it was quite a mixture of people too.
And speaking of Jason Aldean, Will and his friends will be heading out soon to watch his performance tonight. (I am a little bit jealous!) My next visit will be Friday night to see Blake Shelton with Robin, then Sunday evening the girls and I will head up to see George Strait's The Cowboy Rides Away tour. We have discussed taking the kids to the carnival on Wednesday...but work is overwhelming me a little right now, so I am not sure yet if I can get away.
There will be more Rodeo pictures to come!
