Great Weekend!

This has been one of the best weekends in a really long time!  I've been so busy with the new old job that I needed a weekend like this one to blow off a little steam!

I started the weekend off by waking up at 4:45 a.m. on Friday to watch the Royal Wedding.  Yep, I was one of the nerds who watched the wedding!  My sister and I watched it together through texting.  It was like a fairy tale come to life.  :)

Saturday I spent the day at the New Orleans Jazz Fest with Jill.  We walked around looking at the different craft booths and food options.  There was definitely plenty of food options!  Everything looked so delicious but we were so hot that we didn't feel like eating much.  We tried the crawfish bread and the crawfish monica.  Both are must haves! I don't know how many stages there were set up at the festival but there were quite a few.  We "camped" out at the main stage because that is where Bon Jovi was going to be playing.  During the day we heard Wayne Toups and Irma Thomas.  Jill ventured over to another stage to see Amos Lee while I kept our spot for Bon Jovi.  There was so many people!

 We started out pretty far back.  You can just see one of the big screens set up by the stage in this picture.

Bon Jovi gave a great performance!  No Richie Sambora wasn't there as he had checked himself into rehab but one of Wayne Toups guitar players stood in for him.

 For the encore, Jon put on a Saints jersey! 

We eventually got close enough to take this picture!

Jill and I have both agreed that we will have to go back again next year!  Maybe make it a whole weekend event!  It was just a great time over all!

Sunday was a completely lazy day.  Nothing much was accomplished.  I did finally get a pedicure that I really needed!  Took Duke out to the dog park for a little bit as I had completely ignored him on Saturday.  I am going to have a ton of chores to complete this week!  But it was soooo worth it!
