Another thing I've done is go crazy on concert tickets.

My sister and her family will be going with me to see the Avett Brothers on May 31, as will one of my brothers and his family. It will be a good time. We just got lawn seats because we are bringing the kids. My niece, Annie, has wanted to see them for years.

I bought Lumineers tickets because I missed them the last time they were in town and am still mad about it. (Because they were still a teeny band playing a teeny venue.) I don't know if I'll go or if I'll sell. I'm afraid it will be a bunch of hipsters and teeny-boppers. We'll see.

And then I won Train tickets by being "texter 93" in a radio contest. I could listen to "Drops of Jupiter" like 10 times in a row. Don't even pretend like you didn't love this part:

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star 
One without a permanent scar 

And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there 

(The fried chicken line goes without saying.)

A year ago I was headed to SXSW...I don't know of if I ever even blogged about it? Fiona Apple and Delta Spirit and Milo Greene and Citizen Cope and so many others? (as well as standing in ridiculous lines for Jack White, fun. and Alabama Shakes....not worth it. Not standing in a 3 hour line to get squished by hoards of people.) I didn't buy a wristband this year but may try to catch a couple of the free events. Who knows... Maybe I'll get up extra early next Saturday and go to Rachael Ray's

In other news, we are randomly watching a car show on CNBC and it turns out the guy is based in Lubbock. What are the odds? Flat 12 gallery. West Texas REPRESENT!

I'm pretty sure you did blog about SXSW 2012....and I'm pretty sure it was witty and well written. You should go to the Lumineers!

Oh my gosh! I'm so jealous of your Train tickets!! Drive By is one of my favorite running songs. Drops of Jupiter, Meet Virginia, Save Me San Francisco, Marry Me...LOVE THEM!!
