Ok… So here is the deal.
I will throw some extra details in here in case there are other who can relate with relevant advice or suggestions…
I am a paramedic. I also have a gel nail business. My husband is a farmer. We have two boys and a golden retriever.
Last night, me and one of my besties (also a medic) were doing our nails as we are known to do every few weeks. We have the tunes cranked, the fireplace crackling, kids playing in the background, dog ripping apart chew toy stuffies…. Rocking it out girly-bonding style.
I may or may not be PMSing…. And my nails are frustrating the heck out of me.
Sooo… (no judgments here….) I decide for the first time in who knows how long to have a Michelob beer straight from the fridge, icy cold, and it is amazing. I have another. Maybe even a third….
P!NK is playing on spotify through my phone and blaring on the speaker.
I say to my dear dear friend Tamara Hunt… “I would really like to see her play.”. She murmurs her agreement, quite used to my ramblings by now.
I have one hand in the gel lamp and the other one free for mischief. Well, mischief and I have a way of finding each other. I decide Google is my friend and look up tour dates for 2019.
Jokingly, I say hey! We could go to Montreal tomorrow and see her there. Nope. Too short notice for flights. Hey, what about August 19 in Toronto! Nope, that is my family vacation time. How about Brazil in October? Nope, people get kidnapped there. Hey!! What about Nov 2 in Austin, Texas!!
We are both on days off….
She says that it is not something she could commit to right that second…
I look up, shit eating grin on my face, and say… Whelp… I just bought us two tickets to go!!
I then wonder what in hell’s half acre could possibly hold 120,000 people for a concert…?!? I then get my confirmation email saying I am now also going to a Grand Prix event with another 119,998 of my closest friends!! We got the last two tickets!
It is a 28 hr drive, hotels are booking up fast, as are flights.
Anyone have any advice on where to stay and what to avoid?
I can make my way around a ribeye, but I have never been to the Lone Star state and could use a little advice to make this a great trip!
Ready, Aim, Fire. Has been my motto for many things in life… No exceptions here. Hahaha
