50 bucks...

Last night we went to Freedom Weekend Aloft. We really only went, because one of our favorite guitarists (& singer) was performing (Corey Smith). We got my Mom to keep Bree, and headed out to the concert. You wouldn't believe how the expenses began to add up. 5 dollars for parking. 20 dollars for Paul and I both to get in. 10 dollars for Paul and I both to get one beer (they charge a dollar for the identification wrist band), and then Paul...without my knowing, went back and got more drinks for himself and one of our friends. So, by the end of the night...we ended up spending 50 dollars! Once I realized this, I nearly pooped in my pants. That's too much money to spend at one, concert, event. To me anyway.

I have been told though, that as long as I had fun, which I did, not to regret how much money was spent. And Paul and I did have lots of fun. It was great being able to act 21 again, instead of like an old married couple with a kid. Plus, that was the best concert I have ever been to! I've seen Corey Smith 3 times in concert now, and the third was pretty awesome. I'm not sure if it was because it was outside in amphitheater, or just because we weren't in a bar room like the previous two times. But it was great, and I did have a lot of fun.

Anyway, I can't believe I actually got a Saturday blog in. The only reason being is that Paul fell asleep on the couch, and Bree is still asleep from her nap. I was trying to get them up and out the door, and instead...they're sleeping hard as rock. I'll give them 30 more minutes then I'm breaking out the bullhorn!

Hi. I found you on SITS. I totally relate to this post. Every time my husband and I go to an event, it gets expensive. But we so rarely do anything at all, I have to manage my thrifty ways and just let loose. Otherwise, we'd never get a real adult date. I'm glad you had fun.

Thanks for stopping by & the comment! I have had to force myself to just let loose & not worry about money, but it's hard. I am definitely a tight wad :D Not a bad thing, but it is annoying.
