Week 50

Well, I thought I'd have a bathroom update by now,
but I guess I got a little greedy after the kitchen backsplash reveal.
I am SO ready to take a shower in our new bathroom,
or even just have a toilet that's closer in the middle of the night.
Man o man, when is this going to be done?

Enough complaining. Let's get to the real reason for this blog,
Matilda updates!

This week was a pretty big deal.
Brian and I are HUGE music fans,
and it's only fitting that we try to share that love of music with our dear daughter,
because hopefully some day she will be a rock star.
(one can dream, right?)

There is an annual music festival in Charleston
called the Southern Ground Music & Food Festival
and Zac Brown Band started it, here and in Nashville,
so every year he's the headliner (both nights).
We've never gone for 2 reasons:
a. it's during football season

Well, Mommy won tickets on the radio!
Otherwise, we couldn't have afforded to go. 
Yep, that's right, I was the 5th caller
(technically the 6th, I think, but they gave me tix anyway).
2-day passes were $149 each,
so 2 FREE 2-day passes was pretty awesome,
and kids under 5 were already free.

And because we didn't have to pay to get in,
it gave us a little more flexibility in our schedule.
Because if I had to pay full price,
you better believe we would have been there from open to close!

Fortunately, the bands we wanted to see were all during the day,
 so we were able to go from around 2pm to 6pm each day,
which was great with an (almost) one-year old in tow.

I must say that she did fantastic for her first music festival!
We took a blanket and lots of toys and snacks,
and most importantly earplugs.

And Matilda was able to see Dawes, Trombone Shorty,
and Fitz & the Tantrums the first day;
and The Head & the Heart, Willie Nelson,
and Band of Horses the second day!

Dawes and Band of Horses are two of our favorites,
and we also love Willie! So we were stoked that the timing worked out how it did!

Willie Nelson in the background!

Plus, on Saturday it put us home just in time to witness
Tajh Boyd's worst game ever, and the only Clemson loss this season.
That was a heartbreaker.

It was also "Picture Day" at school this week!
Can't wait to see how those turned out!
