Friday Night Reads & Dierks Bentley Recap

Friday Night Reads & Dierks Bentley Recap

A snapshot of my Friday night, which is clearly going to be wild as I try to get my voice back with my tea and honey, rest my sore dancing feet and get comfy with this book that I hear I won’t be able to put down once I start it. 📖🍵

Yesterday was the most amazing and fun night, when a group of friends and I went to the Dierks Bentley concert. All the more fun, one of my gf’s and I (who both LOOOOOVE Dierks) decided to splurge and go VIP, which meant getting to see a private acoustic set with him and the band to start. This is of course just one of those indescribable amazing experiences that you have to be fully present for and enjoy every last second of. To say that Dierks and the band are hilarious, down to earth fun guys is probably an understatement. Which brings us to……

Getting to head from the acoustic set to watching the band dressed in 90’s country disguise as they opened for themselves as Hot Country Knights. I don’t know if I have ever laughed so much. Partly because they are out there having the time of their lives acting like goofs, partly because at least half of the crowd didn’t catch on that this was in fact Dierks Bentley on stage, and that it was meant to be a spoof. The music was spot on though - who doesn’t love a medley of 90’s country throwbacks?

The show of course was awesome. This is the seventh time I’ve seen him live, and I never get tired of this show. I will see Dierks every time I can, forevermore. 😂 Plus when you have Tenille Townes, our very own local country superstar opening, and Jon Pardi, who is so much fun to watch on stage, you cannot help but want to do it all over again the minute its done. I left with sore feet and ZERO voice, but singing every song at top volume was too much fun to stop for a second. That is living at its BEST.

Which brings me back to today. Where I am tired, sore and voiceless, and I could not be happier about it.

Most excitingly, I am getting cozy in this GORGEOUS new blanket that my friend @albertanhooker hand made me for Christmas. This picture in no way does the detail of it justice - but let’s qualify it by saying that it would take me approximately 6 years to attempt this and it would still NOT look like this. Anyone who wants a custom made piece of magic, hit me up because I know a person who knows a person. 😂

QOTD: What are your weekend plans shaping up to look like friends? I’m ready for lots of relaxing and hanging out with my bestie. So pretty much, perfect weekend plans! 😉

Happy Friday friends!
