A Whirlwind Weekend

Ah, it's finally Friday!

I am so excited about my weekend that I could pee in my pants. We have not one but TWO Dave Matthews Band shows with my husband's 20 year *gulp* high school reunion in between.

The first concert is tonight in San Diego and these tickets:

have been on the refrigerator staring at me for months!! I love Dave and the boys and look forward to seeing them every summer. This will be my 18th and 19th show, much to my husband's chagrin. He has fun, but he'd never admit it.

I can't really explain why I love the Dave Matthews Band so much. Their music livens my soul, lifts my spirits and makes me believe in hope, peace and harmony for all mankind. Oh, and I think the lead singer is an amazing talent and in the words of my new favorite blogger, Roxanne at Days, "I'd lick his teeth".

Tomorrow morning, we leave bright and early for the Bay Area for the reunion.
Lucas grandparents will watch him while we mix and mingle and then we head home for show #2 in LA.

This second show is not on DMB's tour schedule because it's being hosted in someone's - wait for it - BACKYARD!! Talk about peeing in my pants!! Can you say: once in a lifetime opportunity?! The event benefits the Tuition Assistance Fund at Heschel West Day School in Agoura, California by providing need-based scholarship to students. Heschel West teaches children in preschool through 5th grade "how to do things right and to do the right thing".
I cannot wait to report back on this. :) :) :) Unfortunately no cameras or videos are allowed. :( :( :(

If you're still with me, I bet you're wondering what on earth I have to Flip Off today. Well, true, my life is pretty damn good right now, but I can ALWAYS find something irritating. This was a great week so I only have one teensy tiny flip and that honor is bestowed upon:


PACKING!


I hate packing.

I hate packing for a weekend, a long weekend, a week, even an overnight. It was bad enough when it was just me, but now that I have to pack for a 14 month old as well, I want to pull my hair out.

I pride myself on my 'To Do' lists and being uber organized, but when it comes to packing... ugh! Forget it! FLIP OFF!! The difficulty for me lies within the question: How am I suppose to know what I'm going to want to wear there based on what I feel like wearing today? And don't even get me started on shoes! For Lucas, it's: What if he has a blow out or gets sick, are two outfits a day going to be enough? Will it be chilly, will the hotel have sheets and blankets for the crib, etc. etc. etc.

If there was a company that would pack for me, I would seriously hire them, without even blinking an eye!


Thank you to Gigi at Kludgy Mom for this fun and very necessary (some weeks more than others) meme. This week she is taking her flips across the Atlantic to Pumpkin and Piglet in the U.K.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe weekend and please be sure to come back next week as I celebrate my one year blogoversary!

The best is yet to be.

Completely with you on the packing, especially with a little one! I end up taking about 10 times more than we need. Then there's the unpacking and washing when you get back. Sigh.

The shows sound great, especially the second one. Hope you have a lot of fun :D

I LOVE DMB! Although I've never been to THAT many shows! I hope you have a ton of fun! You literally will be right down the street from where I live! I will be in San Fran this weekend, so I am so with you on the packing thing! Have a great weekend!

You know what? If I ever really did get the chance to lick his teeth? I'd probably fall over dead.

I can't even tell you how friggin jealous I am. Have a ton of fun and wave at him for me.

I hope you have a wonderful time at both DMB shows. My husband is *Dying* to see them - but they rarely come close enough to us.... Can't wait to hear your 'report' on the shows. I'm sure they'll be fantastic if you've been back 18 times! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

I have a good friend who's met & hung out with the band. She said they were all really great guys, polite & nice BUT Dave has the.worst.hygiene of anyone she's ever met. His BO apparently stunk up the whole room.
I told her that was fine. I would gladly take him into the shower & wash him off.

I miss the days when I was young and could just take a toothbrush, a hairbrush, and a clean pair of undies.....yeah, packing for a kiddo is tough. But in this case, it will be SO worth it!! Have fun!

Flip to packing! And flip to UN-packing, I hate that even worse! Have a great time at the show. =)

OMG. I love the DMB, too! I used to travel around going to their concerts back in the day. I have some of the BEST memories at their shows.

I can't discuss those memeories for fear of the FBI reading this and needing to arrest me for my ummm behaviors.

HAVE FUN!!

i am so jealous for two reasons. One, I love Dave Matthews Band, and two, I love San Diego. Have a wonderful time and say "hi" to Dave for me. He won't remember me because we only met a once in my dreams. hahaha

I agree packing bites! Have fun at the concerts! I am happily babysitting for you on Sunday for the DMB concert #2!

I think I am the only one in the world, but I find DMB music so boring! I'm sorry! Forgive me. But I do agree with you on packing. I hate it, and I do it ALL THE TIME!

Ugh, packing. My nemesis. Hate it too! Have a great weekend. I am not a huge DMB fan but I would go see them in at a private concert too. Hope you get to rub elbows with them. Can't wait for your review.

Blogger WTH am I Doing? said...

Ooooh! Have fun! :)

And the packing? Totally on that page. It's ridiculous how much stuff a baby/toddler requires...and how much stuff they *might* require. It's the mights that get you. ;o)
