So a few weeks ago, Kevin and I took a mini vacay out west. We had originally planned on staying in Laguna Beach for the entire trip, but after looking at the unseasonably low temps & monsoon-like weather forecast,we decided to only stay in So Cal one night, and then head to Vegas. Insane, right? Fly across to the country only to immediately turn around & drive an additional 3.5 hours? What can I say...Warm weather,free adult beverages, & gambling are huge motivators for the G's :) (Side note-That pic is the view from our hotel room at Caesars. Amazing!)
Answer? Um, no one, duh. I have been oddly obsessed with his music since early high school. There probably isn't a mixed cd I made between 1999-2006 that doesn't have one of his songs on it. The man doesn't do bad music. So, while driving from CA to Vegas, I was actively trying to convince Kev that we should fly to one of his random tour dates in the US this spring. Hello? Anyone up for his Boise, Idaho show? Yeah.. Kevin wasn't either. Dang. But wait, Low and behold, I wake up on Monday morning, and the Courier-Journal is reporting that Sir Elton is coming to Louisville April 15th. O.M.F.G. I'm pretty sure I called Kev, my mom, and Big P all within about 5 minutes to tell them my fantastically amazing news. Shockingly, none of them were all that pumped. Repeat this same reaction about 10 more times with my girlfriends. And all of my co-workers. And my customers. Bahahahahahahaha. Don't worry, their lack of enthusiasm did nothing to derail mine... Although, I've now come to the realization that I am probably the only person under the age of 40 who is this excited about his concert, which is fine. My fabulous husband has agreed to escort me... And while I'm crossing something off my bucket list, everyone else is going to be missing the music stylings of a rock legend. But if this doesn't at least make you love him a little bit, then I can't help you :)
In short, Elton John Concert = Winning. For Sure.
Thats it for now yall! Xoxo- Caroline
