Good morning and happy Monday, friends! This weekend was such a fun one, despite the fact that I slept for a combined 7 hours. Total. I wish I was kidding. I’m still trying to find the balance of having a social life with the fact that I have an infant who doesn’t sleep very well.
Friday was ladies night in my neighborhood which was a blast, Sunday was a baby shower for a friend, but Saturday was the main event: BILLY JOEL. Cory and I drove down to Virginia Beach on Saturday afternoon and met up with my brother and his girlfriend, Erin.
My mom was kind enough to babysit Jack while we were gone, which was both stressful and liberating. I haven’t been away from Jack for more than 3 hours since he was born, so being gone from 2pm – 1:30am felt like an eternity. (Mainly because I was trying to time my day around my boobs, but whatever.)
The show started at 8pm, and we got to the Farm Bureau amphitheater about an hour beforehand. We had lawn seats, and while I didn’t expect finding space to be super easy, I was shocked with how packed it was. You could hardly find a piece of grass to save your life.
Thankfully we were able to convince some people to scoot over, and the four of us sardined our chairs together on a tiny piece of grass. It ended up not being a problem, though, because once Billy came out everyone stood up, which opened things up a bit.
I grew up with Billy Joel, and it was such a blast being able to see him in concert. I cannot even tell you how impressed I was with how good he sounded. Like he mentioned at one point, he’s been doing this job for 50 years. What?! That’s insane to me. I love how music spans generations like that. It was so neat being a 20-something enjoying the same music with 6o-somethings.
Billy played for over two hours and it.was.awesome. It was absolutely a Bucket List item to see him, so it was well worth the long drive and the sleepless night!
Who is the best person you’ve seen in concert, or is someone you’d love to see?
In a dream world, I’d see The Beatles and Michael Jackson 😉
