Romping at the CMA's

I'm BA-ACK! And feeling oh-so-refreshed, I must say. That fresh saltwater air must have healing agents or something, because I feel like a brand. new. gal. And trying desperately to make this tan I've got going last to this weekend for our friend's wedding. Let's all pray to the peeling gods that they stay far away from me and my shoulders. No one likes seeing that nonsense in a sundress. No one.

Before I begin the recap of our uber-fantabulous Beach Trip 2010 (and yes, the tarballs arrived on the shores of Sandestin on Thursday, and no, they did not stick around long enough to matter, thank goodness) I wanted to be sure I didn't forget to show a few photos from our 3rd Annual CMA Fest Date Night.

So let's see, we started the night off at Past Perfect for dinner and drinks with our friends the Schwartzenbergs and then walked over the bridge just in time to hear Josh Turner start things off with "Would You Go With Me" (which just so happened to be one of the songs we used in our rehearsal dinner photo montage - there's a fun fact for you.) And P.S. Josh is a TOTAL hottie. He is definitely creeping into my Top Five. After hearing him croon away with that lovely low voice came my homegirl Miranda who got things fired up with "Gunpowder and Lead" and her current hits "The House That Built Me" and "White Liar." I think she and I would TOTALLY be friends. I like her sassiness. And after that came Reba which was in my opinion a total snoozefest. Just never really got on board the Reba bandwagon, with the exception of "Fancy" about a decade ago. But guess who swooped in right after her to save the day and make my entire night, year, and decade. Yes ma'am, the one and only Mr. Keith Urban. Swoon FEST. That guy is just more amazing every time I see him. I tell Mr. T that part of what makes him so attractive is NOT his Australian accent/amazing hair/guitar playing talent but that he just seems so SINCERE. The highlight of the night was when he sang a cover of "I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends" with images from the flood and all the ordinary folks doing extraordinary things to help out their neighbors. It was, in a word, awesome. And Mr. T just sat there and shook his head at me as I kept saying "Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh" on repeat. I turn into a 13 year old brace-faced freak when it comes to Mr. Urban, I confess.

So anyway, here are a few pics from our fun night! Wish the ones I had taken of the musicians had turned out, but I can't quite figure out the night setting on my new camera and the lights made everything blurry. That is my homework before the next outing, I promise.

And P.S. this last photo just might be making an appearance as my new Facebook profile pic. How have I never discovered this big ole boot in the heart of Honky Tonk Row downtown? You know how I love my cowboy boots!
