where the wind blows, babe

Uncaged.
Zac Brown Band
July 10th, folks.

Still unsure how I feel about their first single "The Wind" so I'll just upload the cool video here and see if it grows on me in a knee slappin', blue grass-y kinda way....

at least i don't see dead people.

"I don't think it's fair for me to be on a jury since I'm a hologram" - Liz Lemon

Now I'm one of the biggest country fans there is and there's not much more I love than a live concert...add in the fact it's country...at Wrigley Field and I'm sold. Hook, line and sinker.

So flash forward to a night of The Band Perry, Chris Young, Miranda Lambert (more like Meh-randa...) and Brad Paisley.

Pure perfection.

But wait...there's more! About an hour into Brad's set, he slows it down and starts his latest duet, "Remind Me," which he sings with the infamous Carrie Underwood. It was at this point, I turned to Mark and said "No...could it be..." as a sparkly figured emerged from backstage.

AY CARUMBA. Carrie Underwood in the house, y'all. I admit it: I stood up from my seat, double fist pump style. Sing it, sister!

Flash forward to the night after where I learn the cold hard truth:
Carrie Underwood was not actually there.




It was merely a SINGING HOLOGRAM. Seriously. It looked so real...from the 400s. Is this where our concerts are headed? Cookin' up a fake hologram of real people? I don't like it. I don't like it one little bit.

no words necessary

Attitude's a funny thing: especially when you decide to change it. Everything looks just a bit different...in the best kinda way.

Colors are brighter and people are smiley-er.

Now I'm not saying I was down in the dumps - heck, the only side I see is bright - but recently, I found myself...wait for it...wait for it...complaining (gasp!). Yes, yes, I know.

The dreaded C word.

Funny how one little visit to a place that begins with a C can turn it all around. And no, clearly, the irony does not escape me.

Cape Cod. Duh.

Meet my Memorial Day 2k12: where no words are necessary because these pictures are worth a thousand words (and my writing is full of cliches)...

Tuna and I during our moped ride on Martha's Vineyard. SAFETY FIRST.

Lunch view from The Black Dog Tavern. It's famous?

Gang's all here.




Absolutely no filters needed.





Epic night, naturally.




Blowing kisses to those on the shore.




Rocking The Shack Out Back.




"Happy Memorial Day," says Dennis, Massachusetts.

Sailboat sights from a sailboat.




Little house on the Cape.
