So far, 2011 has been treating me pretty good... there are so many events I am looking forward to this spring...
Next weekend one of my favorite blog friends turned IRL friend, Lesli is coming to Des Moines to visit! Now that I am a free woman, I have all the time in the world to spend with her. We usually end up at her hubby's favorite restaurant, On The Border which is muy bueno with me! :)
A couple weeks after that I will be heading up to her neck of the woods with my friend S for the Jodi Picoult signing for Sing You Home. (Do you guys get how big of a nerd I am now? Seriously. My last few posts have all mentioned this book somewhere!)
Then... the week after that (St. Patrick's Day!) my group of friends and I are heading two hours west of here to the lovely city of Omaha, NE to see this spectacular lady....
We have FLOOR SEATS (that we paid a pretty penny for) and I just can't wait. I have a feeling it's going to be chaos and so much fun! We decided to pay a little extra because my best friends sister in law has graciously opened up her home for us, (which, not going to lie. This woman is loaded and I'm almost as excited to see her house as I am Gaga) so since we didn't have to spend any extra on a hotel room we splurged on the seats.
It's general admission floor seats which, I have to admit is a little concerning to me. I'm not interested in having to elbow people to maintain a good view and would enjoy having an actual seat, but we decided to risk it and see what happens. If we regret it... well, we'll learn our lesson! I think no matter what we're going to have a great time.
Today, I am heading downtown with a friend to walk through the Historical Building and the Papajohn Sculpture park for my Integrating the Arts class and I am actually really excited! Being a Des Moines native I have been to the Historical Building, but it was probably in the 3rd grade on a field trip, so I basically remember nothing. I'm excited to check it out as an adult that appreciates history.
I will make sure to take lots of pictures! It's gorgeous out so I should be able to get some good shots of the sculptures in the park!
Have you ever been to a big concert that was general admission? What did you think?
