Flashback Friday: An Evening With The King

I really don't know how I managed to get so far behind in my blog posting for 2013...but I sure have. So, I have set a goal for the summer to post a 'Flashback Friday' each week. "Flashback Friday" will contain photos and content that I never got around to posting at the time it happened but that I do not want to forget. Some weeks you may get little to no witty commentary...but I will try to at least get the photos up with a caption or two.

 My first "Flashback" is to March 17,2013. Saint Patrick's Day!
The girls and I, all festive in our St. Patty's green, met at Robin's house for a pre-party.
(Aren't they pretty, y'all?)
From Robin's we all headed out to Reliant Stadium...
...Where we were blessed with amazing seats!
13th row on the floor!  Aisle Seats!
That is the stage behind the girls in this picture and they were standing at the end of our row.
Our season tickets were won in a drawing by one of our employees.  If you can spot the guy on the aisle in a white shirt, that is them...taken with a the lens turned all the way up from our seats.

As season ticket holders, we were allowed to go online and buy that many extra seats the day before the tickets went on sale to the public.  While most of my friends were also online and getting tickets in the rafters the Lord blessed the girls and I with these seats.  I never want to forget that.

I know in the grand scheme of life and problems it seems like God wouldn't care about where we sat at a concert.  But I truly believe that these seats were a miracle and a special blessing from Him.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo had officially closed the night before.  But on Sunday night there was a special 'Concert Only' performance  featuring Martina McBride and....
'The King of Country Music', George Strait.
My girls were over the moon excited to be seeing George Strait on his final 'The Cowboy Rides Away' tour.
George and the HLSR have a long history together.  I saw him close out the last Rodeo in the Astrodome and kick off the first Rodeo in Reliant Stadium.  Mom and I went to see his summer music festival several times at Rice Stadium and Minute Maid Park.  (Way back when Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney were opening acts!)

But seeing his last tour with my girls?
That was priceless!

(Oh, yeah.  And it was Brianne's first FULL concert in her LIFE! What a way to experience your first concert!)

PS...we have decided that this performance was our Girl's Night Out at the Theater for 2013, because, really, what can top this?

I'm not a country fan in general but I do love me some George Strait. I would have loved to see him in concert but I will have to settle for his CD's.
