Miranda Was My Only Win

Win: Friday I jetted out of work as that clock ticked 5pm, started blasting Miranda lambert in the car and scurried home to change clothes and put my new cowboy boots on. 






I made myself a jack and diet and began ironing my dress so it wasn't full of wrinkles....


What you've never done that before? Well, I'm quite the modern housewife. I don't need actual irons when I have a curling iron that works just fine! 

Then I jetted off to see my BFF Miranda. I bought this light up bracelet just to be sure that I wasted spent all of my hard earned dollars on things I totally couldn't live without. Then I patiently waited for Miranda while Dierks Bentley performed.


And when she took the stage, it was glorious. GLORIOUS I tell you. I also realized that concert pictures are much like firework pictures, all terrible. I wish I had images that better showed how amazing Miranda was in concert.... but this is all I got. It looks like I was in the nosebleeds, but really my tickets I got off Stubhub were fabulous!! 





Loss(es): Saturday was a down day. I woke up and got dressed to go the the Tennessee alum watch party which is about 30 minutes from my apartment all the way out in Frisco. We all screamed and yelled and cheering for the first 5 minutes of the game. Then... crickets..... 



Tennessee got MURDERED BRUTALLY MURDERED in broad daylight by a bunch of highlighters. It was really really sad. I then went home and cried myself to sleep. Oh, then the cowboys got got beat the next day too. And then my fantasy team got beat by Alex.

 Now I'm never going to watch football ever again. Hah, jk...lol...lylas. 

The good news is tomorrow I'm off to a work trip in Louisville and won't be back until Thursday night. I think only two days in the office will make for a fabulous work week! Anyone have any suggestions for restaurants in Louisville?? 

Linking up with Sami!

I've also teamed up with Erin and her sponsors to bring you a group giveaway filled with Starbucks, Target, Sephora and Ad Space!

  1. So, I knew not to expect much out of the Oregon game. I mean, we're rebuilding. They're #2. blah blah blah.
    I even said to my boyfriend, "I know we would need a miracle to win, but honestly, if we just don't turn out to be their Austin-Peay, I'll be happy."

    And then we were destroyed. Sigh.

  4. Sorry for your football losses. I'm 0-2 in one fantasy league and 2-0 in the other, go figure. Miranda is definitely a win, though!!! LOVE HER. Also, that first picture with the jack bottle is artsy and cool! Have fun on your work trip!

  11. This will sound ridiculous, but the first thing I thought when I saw the first picture was, "her dress is wrinkled." I love that you addressed that immediately. :)

    And Miranda - amazing concert! When she was in WV, she yelled at some guy in the audience for talking during "House That Built Me." I kind of love her.

  12. Awww.. well let's focus on the win! Nice boots first off! I know what you mean about concert pictures..! No matter what you do.. the pictures never do the experience any justice! We saw Paul McCartney in concert last November and our pictures were sad...but that was because our seats WERE brutal. We were in Row X... yup, pretty close to the cement wall..as faaaaar back as you can get...! STILL a crazy, incredible experience though!

  13. Insanely jealous that you saw Miranda & Dierks this weekend. I've seen her twice and she never disappoints!

  14. Okay here's your question (and excuse the fact that I know nothing about football and still find your blog funny): what the hell is a three-point conversion in football? Or is it a two-point conversion? I don't understand how it works. But I live in Texas and probably should understand all the rules of football. (Don't worry, I finally had someone explain to me what a first down was ... when I was in college.)

  15. Did you ever see the first episode of The Hills? LC totally ironed her skirt with a flat iron.

  16. so don't kill me but I had no idea who Miranda Lambert was until this post. I just googled her and had Wiki educate me about her musical life lol.

  17. Okay, here's my question: You have to go back to college and you're not allowed to go back to your old alma mater. Where would you go and what would you study? xx

  18. So my question is how is the best way to spruce up your blog design!

  19. So I mighta fell in love for a second after that first picture.

    It sucks when your real football team and your fantasy team tank on the same weekend. And your school. But it beats the hell out of playing fantasy hockey or racing.

  21. Yeah! I just saw the Miranda/Dierks concert in Chicago a few weeks ago. Sorry about your teams... we had a real nail biter between the Bears and Minnesota yesterday and were able to come out on top!

    Question- Do you watch The League? If not you should. It's hilarious.

  23. I went to Louisville for a work convention in July...and I didn't enjoy it much. It was a pretty dirty city (where we were). I did venture out a few blocks from my hotel and eat at Taco Punk. It was really laid back but they also had some antique and shabby chic shops and boutiques in the area. Might be worth checking out. :)

  24. And then you request coffee in bed the next morning... ;) To say I'm not jealous of your fab cowgirl kinda night would make me a liar.

  25. So jealous you got to see Miranda Lambert in concert! I worship that woman and I love her stuff with the Pistol Annies. And it's funny you mention ironing your dress with a curling iron--I always do touch-ups with my straight-iron! It's just so much quicker.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great minds think alike! I use my flat-iron to iron my clothes way more the I use an iron! I honestly don't remember the last time I used an actual iron! My sister in law was at that same concert! She said it was awesome!

  33. "Tennessee got MURDERED in broad daylight by a bunch of highlighters." <-- You are hysterical. But I'm not laughing about your team losing. Because I know how much that sucks. RIP Panthers and Fantasy team.
