It’s been quite a week here that the last thing I’ve wanted to do at night is blog. I’m not sure why, I just have been in a funk lately. I feel like I don’t have anything to say, really. I figured silence is better than some mindless, meaningless post.
But, I’m happy to report that I do have lots to share this Friday for a standard Friday Favs post! So, here we go.
Sir Paul McCartney Concert
Wednesday night, Hubby and I went to the Sir Paul McCartney concert. It’s the main reason I didn’t blog this week.
One word to describe this concert: INCREDIBLE! This 73-year-old played for 3 HOURS! 3 HOURS!!! He played 35 songs, had 2 encores and had the most energy I’ve ever seen during a concert. It was a sold out crowd and we sang along the entire time.
I still can’t believe we saw Paul McCartney, a living Beatle. I listened to the Beatles 1 album with my dad on almost every road trip to and from college and Hubby listened with his dad. And now, Hubby and I listen to the same album on our long car rides. It’s one of the few bands we agree to listen to (except Darius Rucker and Zac Brown Band).
During Live & Let Die, there was FIRE and FIREWORKS!
Paul played 2 different guitars, 1 electric guitar, 2 different pianos and a ukulele. He sang several songs I had never heard, including a tribute to John Lennon. It was quite moving. The ukulele song was in tribute to George Harrison.
One of my favorite songs of the night was Blackbird. I actually sang that song with my show choir group in middle school. Yes, I am a Glee nerd from middle school, but, hey, it was the cool thing to do then! And I didn’t know that he wrote that song during the 1960’s American Civil Rights Movement. He wrote it hoping it would get back to the people in America trying to make a difference. Wow.
Of course he sang Let It Be and Hey, Jude. Singing the na, na, na, na part with and to Paul McCartney is something I will never forget. I think I even cried. I had a moment.
I think I can die happy now. That’s Paul waving an American flag during the first encore.
I am so happy we went to this concert. You can totally tell that performing is something he loves to do and seemed very appreciative of the fans. Hubby actually said that he would have put this on his bucket list, but he never thought it would be possible!! Neither of us ever thought he would be touring at this age, but I’m so happy we could watch and cross it off the bucket list. If you ever get the chance to see him in person, do it! You won’t regret it!
It’s hard to top Sir Paul, but if anyone can do it, it’s this little bean. In true #basic fashion, I’m loving everything pumpkin. I don’t love a PSL (please don’t send hate mail), but pumpkin loaves, pumpkin candles, and, yes, pumpkin dog costumes.
I thought Part 1 of the reunion was quite boring, but I’m just excited that it’s started!! I feel badly for Tamra and her custody battle. No mother should go through what she’s going through. Shannon is whack-a-doodle. Heather is still my fav. Vicki is bat-shit. Her story about her mother was terrifying. She told a “happy” story about her mother and that happy story involved her mother keying a classic Harley Davidson, hiding in a TJ Maxx bathroom and telling the police she had a gun. I’m still waiting on the humor. Part 2 is going to be good!!! Briana comes on and I hope she tells the truth and we see Vicki for who she really is!!
BFF Coming This Weekend
Yayy!! My BFF is coming with her BF this weekend. Sorry about the pic, Meg. This was our very first picture together freshman year of college. I’m pumped to go to Orange theory together, have some yummy food and cocktails and laugh at Bill Burr this weekend.
