The hubby and I don’t get out alone much. Like, at all. Ever. We really need to get better at planning date nights and things… I like to say that it’s because I’m breastfeeding Rebecca, but there isn’t really a reason I can’t pump more often… as long as we can find a babysitter!
Anyway, a few weeks ago we had a GREAT reason to get out alone. OFFSPRING! They are one of my favorite bands of all time. I’ve been listening to them since I was in the 8th grade, have now seen them 4 times, and even met them backstage once. They were playing at a local festival, The Waterfront.
We were in the lawn area, not up close in the seats, but I wished I had bought those front row tickets! Offspring is amazing in concert. I haven’t followed them lately – ya know, since having kids. So I really don’t know their new stuff. I don’t think I’ve even listened to their newest album that came out earlier this year. I was worried I wouldn’t know their songs at the concert, but thankfully they played an amazing set list. Tons of classics and all my favorites.
This is actually how far back we were. My hubby refused to move closer, lol. There was a giant screen to our left so it was nice to be able to see them up close on there, but… I like to be in the action! No one around us was moving – lame. So if you were there, I was the crazy in the lawn area that was dancing and singing every word. I asked my hubby at one point if he was embarrassed of me and he’s lucky he said no. I had a wonderful time
And I met up with an old, awesome friend afterwards — we go back to elementary school! But we only hung out for a little bit — I had children I needed to get back to!
Awesome night out, even if it was just a few hours. It’s always nice to have a good reminder of the person you are besides “mom” and relive some favorite times. Take me to a concert any day!
Are you an Offspring fan?!
