Music Fest

     Don’t get to excited y’all; it wasn’t the CMA Fest or anything.  Every year, my town holds the Shannon Street Music Fest (formerly Blues Fest).  Last weekend, Keith got to spend a few days here, and we got to have a real date…which is not all that common for us.
      I had a gift card to Chili’s left from my birthday, so we used that (…Southwest egg rolls – love) and then headed downtown.  The event used to be held in our Farmers’ Market Pavilion, but this year, they blocked off a big chunk of downtown which gave us a lot more space.  There were booths from local vendors, politicians, and little carnival games, and a big stage where they showcased some local talent.  To be quite honest, I didn’t pay a ton of attention to the music, but I go to events like this more for the atmosphere than the main focus.  My pictures aren’t great, but I thought I’d share them anyway…you’ll have to bear with the blurriness.

I know this is a little blurry, but it’s the best picture of us from the night.

This was the main area they had sectioned off.

A lot of people bring their chairs and sit on the lawn of the courthouse to see/hear the music.

My one pitiful picture of the stage…

     The weather was so perfect to just hang out outside.  I was worried that it was going to be oppressively hot, but I actually had to break out a pair of blue jeans!  We almost never get to do stuff like this between school and studying (his, not mine) and whatever else, and I was so happy to be able to just relax and be together for a little bit without thinking about class or a test or anything like that.  Days like that make me so excited to be married.  I know it won’t always be sunshine and daisies, but at least it’ll be a little more settled than what we have right now.  I think that will be so nice.
     This weekend (starting tonight) I’m going to be cooking shrimp and grits, giving two adorable outfits I made to Della, and taking my very last Praxis test!  I will obviously show you the outfits, and I can’t wait to make/eat/share the shrimp and grits!

We used to have a little music thing called Sundown in the City every Thursday night in the summer. It featured like two bands, sometimes big ones like Citizen Cope and you just chill outside in the little town center in downtown Knoxville. I loved going though, we always had so much fun! This stopped it this year because it got to be so big. :(
I know what you mean about having those days where you just want to move the wedding up to like tomorrow!
