American Idol Live Fans....

So, my hubby and I started out Saturday, as we usually do on the hot summer weekend this time of year. We go to a local Arts Festival and then to an antique mall and we try and grab some lunch in there too. On this day our lunch ended up not happening until somewhere around 3:00 p.m. By the time we decided we were hungry and where we wanted to grab a bite to eat, it was late for lunch, but Oh Well!

We had basically been "dumped" by all three of our wonderful daughter's for
"better options" then to hang with the boring parents....

you know how that is I'm sure!

The youngest went with a friend to a lake for some water fun and later fireworks with her family. The "middle" had to work until close and then was hanging with her friends too. And the oldest, just can't go too long without her main squeeze, so from work to him.

That left us trying to decide what to do!

While eating lunch, hubby said he felt like going somewhere and hearing a band play, but had no clue on this holiday weekend where to go. I said (half jokingly) We should go see the American Idol Live concert tonight! But, I said Mal (our youngest) will be soooo mad at us! And we kind of were chatting about it and how much are tickets and what time does it start, when my cell phone rang and it was DD#2 calling on her lunch break wanting to know what we were doing tonight (actually last night, but stay with me on this).

I said I didn't know and why was she asking? She said, Well, her friend had 2 tickets to American Idol Live GIVEN to her, because the person couldn't go and she couldn't find anyone to go with her (and my daughter was at work...remember). I'm like what???? Here talk to your Dad....because there had to be some catch with this, right, I mean we were JUST talking about
it and now here is a great opportunity to actually go!!

So, we made arraignments to purchase these tickets from her friend

(at a decent....actually GREAT price)

and we were off to the concert.............

In a Suite no less....

To ourselves!!!!!!!!

No one else showed up in this suite....

no one,

just the two of us,

it was GREAT!

So, now let me back up, just a little bit.

We get there and we walk to the arena and there is a group forming

at the back where the buses park for the performers. It appears

they all have their own bus, or at least most do.

So, I go up to take my peek and who comes walking up

to sign autographs but,


Mal's going to be so mad at us!!!!

and let me tell you,

I do not have my zoom on my camera.

I am that close....

poor guys hair was everywhere....

But, he's still a cutie....
