Sparkle and Shine on New Year’s Eve

What’s everyone doing for New Year’s Eve?  We will be at the casino for the Roaring Twenties Party including a concert by ZZ Top!! I think I’ll be wearing a little sparkle and shine to the party! I love this over the shoulder sequined shirt!! This is a size Small and fits pretty well.   It comes in other color options, too.  I thought it would have more sequins, but when it’s on you really don’t need any more!! I won’t be wearing these pants because they’re too big, but I might wear the booties.

Concert Night

Another fun concert night at Choctaw for Alan’s birthday weekend!  Charlie Daniels Band was great! It’s hard to believe he’s 83!! He put on a fun show and engaged with the audience.  Travis Tritt was also on fire!! We had such a great time!!

Alan wore the buffalo plaid shirt that he said made him look like he was wearing a table cloth. We were supposed to be taking Christmas Card photos in it, but we never got around to taking them. I didn’t want to be all matchy matchy at the concert, so I wore my khaki knotted back sweater.

Birthday weekend

It’s Alan’s birthday weekend and Choctaw Casinos decided to go big for his birthday by putting on TWO concerts!! Friday night was STYX and tonight is The Charlie Daniels Band and Travis Tritt.  We were lucky enough to watch STYX from the suite, so that meant great food to enjoy during the concert.  STYX was awesome! I think they might have been the loudest band I’ve ever seen there.

Before the concert, we had Alan’s present opening!! He got $100, $50 in chips, a Polo shirt and Beats by Dre!  I think he’s pretty happy with his gifts!

I wore the cutest off the shoulder shirt with bat wings.  It was so soft.  It was a great concert shirt!

Taco Salad

One of my favorite places in Dallas is the Arboretum.  This week, they had one of my favorite Austin bands, The Spazmatics playing at their Thursday concert.  I was so excited when I saw they were playing that I bought tickets immediately.  The Arboretum concerts are so much fun because you can bring a blanket, food and drinks and enjoy the music while overlooking White Rock Lake. Unfortunately, they announced that the Spazmatics weren’t going to be there because their plane had gotten delayed in Atlanta. Luckily, they found another band to play, the Metal Shop.  This band was a hair band and they were so much fun. They had choreography and didn’t take themselves too serious. It was funny watching all the ladies rush the stage and dance to the 80’s hair band music.  It ended up being a lot of fun, and the Arboretum said they would refund the money, so it was a fun-filled free evening for me!

This week, I decided to make a taco salad for dinner.  It turned out pretty good and I think it’s pretty healthy.
