Home from Vegas

We had an awesome trip to Vegas and got home late last night. I came back to work today which was kinda nice so that I could get caught up on my paperwork and then start fresh on Monday. So, we gambled $6.00 while we were there and lost it all. Such a disappointment. :)

The highlight of the trip was Garth Brooks! The concert was SOOOOO much better than I even expected. We were on the 3rd row so we were literally 10 feet from him most of the time. He came out wearing jeans, work boots, and a hoodie sweatshirt. Very casual.

He sang songs that he loved growing up which ranged all over the board. Then he sang all of his best-known songs. My favorite part was his duet with Trisha Yearwood (it was Valentine's Day). They sang "In Another's Eyes" and "She's in Love with the Boy". I couldn't believe how great they sounded. Plus, I love those songs!

He played his guitar and sang without a band. It was very low-key and personal. He even took about 6 requests from the audience. A young guy approached the stage holding a ball cap and security was ready to escort him out, but Garth stopped them and shook the guy's hand. He then traded caps with him.

What surprised me most was how funny he was. He would tell little stories in between songs about his childhood and he is incredibly hilarious. It just reminded me why I have LOVED him forever!

So, if you get a chance to see a Garth concert- GO! Even the 2 very unexcited-to-be-there guys behind us enjoyed it. I just hope you don't lose all of your money like we did. (ha,ha).


  1. oh my goodness!!! I was reading your post on my husbands iPhone and started squealing with excitement when u said that Garth traded his hat with a guy in the audience.. So I read it outloud to him and just so you know.. We are extremely jealous that you got to experience that! It is my husbands DREAM to meet Garth, or even to go to a concert! We just live across the line in Arkansas.. So if he comes to OK in the future let me know!! I hope you got some good pics to remember that by! I'm glad y'all had a great time on vacation!!
