If any of you have seen Garth Brooks and Tricia Yearwood on Garth's current world tour, you will know exactly what I am talking about when I say he is one of the most energetic performers that I have ever seen live in concert! The other thing that really great thing is that Garth charges the same ticket price regardless of where you are sitting just to make it affordable for everyone - his other wise move is for anyone who gets floor seats up front, their system emails you mobile tickets 3 hours before the start of the concert, all members of your party need to go in at the same time and whoever bought the tickets has to show picture ID that matches the name on the ticket purchase....why you ask? So that ticket scalpers tend to stay away because it is harder for them to try and re-sell his best seats.
Having said all of that the day tickets for his Fargo show went on sale the demand was so intense that it crashed the entire computer system and they had to stop sales for almost a week until they could sort out the ordering online issues. We managed to finally get tickets in the first round (3rd row from the stage - fabulous!!) but let me say I held my breath as I waited for the online order to process!
So I thought I would share some photos from last night's show here in Fargo - he went from one show originally to a total of 4 shows in 4 days here and played some many of his great older music the entire crowd was singing along!

Ok, with two little kiddos to chase after I haven't been a big wearer of dress shoes in say, 10 years! However a month or two ago I was reading one of my favorite blogs "Pioneer Woman" aka Ree Drummond and she extolled the virtues of this little top quality leather ballerina flats by a company in Beverly Hills called "TIEKS". Hmmmm I thought to myself, maybe I should do some research on these shoes, read a TON of reviews and see how other people like them. Having said all of that let me add in that they are not cheap - I'm talking $175/pair but as my hubby always tells me "never buy cheap shoes that don't last"....hmmm he must have discovered my penchant for Payless Shoe stores hehehe! And so I read...and read...and read that everyone who buys them insists they are the most comfortable and stylish shoe they have ever bought - GULP - so for an early Mother's Day present we ordered me a pair of Tieks which come straight to your doorstep in two days! Not only are the shoes GREAT but even the packaging is incredible - who knew!
