George Strait Concert

This past weekend Chris and I made a trip down to Houston to go see the George Strait concert with some good friends of ours. We both took off on Friday and got up early to drive down. We got there around lunch time and had a relaxing afternoon with Chris’s mom while we waited for Chris’s dad to get off work. That night we went to Babins (my favorite – I love their crab cakes). Then on Saturday we had a fun pool day before getting ready and heading out to the concert. We had a great time at the concert, although I can tell I am getting old. There were so many DRUNK people!!! I don’t know if it is my age or the fact that I am prego, but I just couldn’t handle it. My favorite drunk person was a lady that came up to me when I was waiting in line for the restroom that told me how she had 3 kids and it sucked being a mom and how sorry she was that I was pregnant….all I have to say is I am glad I am not her kid – what a HORRIBLE thing to say. Anyway, then there was the SCREECHING girls behind us…they yelled through the entire concert. By the end of the night I couldn’t even hear the music my ears were ringing. I seriously think they were having a contest on who could be the most annoying. And it wasn’t just me…it was the entire group that felt this way. I know that a concert is loud and I don’t mind the occasional scream at the appropriate time…but they literally “nail on a chalkboard” screamed the entire time!!! At one point I turned to Chris and said that I wish they would shut up. I guess I said it too loud (at this point I couldn’t even hear myself so I had no way of knowing) because they overheard and started talking sh*t to me trying to pick a fight. SERIOUSLY???? Chris got really ticked and wanted to say something, but we decided it was best to just let it go. It was quite funny now looking back on it. Other than that, the concert was a blast. It was fun seeing our friends and listening to the concert. Here are some pictures of our night.

On another note, I had my GD test done. It was the initial screen test so hopefully I will pass and won’t need to go back for the yucky 3 hour test. After my GD test I had my 29 week Dr. Appt. Everything looked good and Easton’s Heart Rate was 130. My doctor talked to me a little about cord banking…any thoughts on that out there? I guess Chris and I will need to sit down and talk about it – but any input would be greatly appreciated. I never know if it is something really important or if doctors just build it up.

I am really looking forward to this weekend…it is my shower!!! YEAH! I have a lot of dear friends hosting a shower for me and I am so excited to see all my guests. Chris’s parents are coming up tomorrow so I decided to take off tomorrow and Friday and make it a long weekend. I desperately need some me time right now. So tomorrow I will run some much needed errands, have lunch with one of my besties and relax. YEAH! I will update next week on my shower. Until then, I hope everyone is having a good week.

Definitely bank the cord blood! Worth EVERY penny! Email me and I can get you a discount with CBR(and I get a year free storage for referring you). We did it with Aubrey and I plan on doing it with every kid. It is amazing all the new things they are discovering they can cure/treat with cord blood.

I 1000% agree with Shae about cord blood banking. We used ViaCord and loved it! Too funny about the concert-- you are getting old ;)
I can't believe that lady said that about her 3 kids-- how sad!
