Chicks Dig It
Last night Becca and I ventured into Atlanta to see the Dixie Chicks! This concert has been a long time coming...we were supposed to go to the concert in October but they had to condense tour dates and so they bumped their ATL shows to December. We got to the arena nice and early and it paid off! Instead of having a view like THIS:

We had a view like THIS: (Hi Natalie)
Yep, we got an upgrade. A BIG upgrade. We were so close that at one point, Natalie's twin boys were dancing NEXT TO US. I have pictures but feel weird about having pictures of someone else's kids. I feel a little like the paparazzi so I'm not going to post them.

The chicks were GREAT. They played a very long set and hit all my favorites. They weren't overtly political save for their lyrics and their stage entrance--they came out to Hail To the Chief. But they were extremely gracious and careful. But not too careful--they still have a lot of sass! Plus, you can tell how strong they are when they play a two hour show in THESE shoes.

Overall, the chicks were funny, engaging, talented and extremely beautiful. SO beautiful.
Kinda like the concert goers :)....

Well...the nice little red state we live in...the concert didn't sell out and as we were heading up to our seats (in the upper deck) a woman asked us if we wanted to upgrade. we said YES!

Oh, landslide.... oh, memories. Lindsay, Mandy and I used to play that at our "first stop" bar in St. Peter... the bar was called The Embassy, I do believe.... but we were pretty happening back then and just referred to it as "The E." Oh, good old times with the DC in a hole in the wall watering hole...

Oh man I hate when people think siblings are twins when they are clearly not. What a lame pick up line that people try to use ;) (Not that I am accusing you of trying to pick up those little boys b/c that is gross and not your style, or is it? but just remembering the number of times we were called twins when clearly we aren't.) Did I say times b/c I mean Time...just once :)
