Weekend Fun

How was your weekend?  After my first five day work week in a long time, I was more than ready for the weekend. 

We headed to Roanoke after work on Friday for a Brad Paisley concert.  It was an awesome show and I’m now an even bigger Brad Paisley fan than I was before the concert.  Both Jerrod Niemann and Darius Rucker (aka – Hootie) opened the show.  Both opening acts rocked the house.

Brad Paisley put on an incredible show.  Every single song was great.

Brad changed a line from “I’d like to check you for ticks” for the crowd.  The video is a little shaky, but you can hear how he changed the “butterfly tattoo” to “Virginia Tech tattoo” for the concert.

Tick check?

Coach Beamer joined Brad on the stage for the last song, “Alcohol.”  Do you know it?  I got you in trouble in high school, now college, that was a ball….

Brad Paisley sings “Alcohol.”

We made a smart move and decided to stay the night in Roanoke.  It was so nice to be able to walk to and from the concert and not have to fight any traffic.  We stayed at the historic hotel Roanoke.

How quickly a fun weekend goes by.  Can it already be almost Monday?  There’s no snow in site, so I guess it’s another five day week for me.  I haven’t given up hope for more snow.  We’ve had some big ones in Virginia at the beginning on March.  I’ve got my fingers crossed!

What did you do this weekend?


  1. I saw Brad Paisley the night before
    in Hershey PA. And yes he knows
    who I am and yes I have met him.
    I have been to 26 Brad shows.
    Brad is amazing and I am so proud of him. Hes my homestate boy!


  2. I love Brad Paisley and hear he puts on a great show. I have one of his older songs on my playlist. The hotel looks really nice! Lucky you!

    Our weather was cold and rainy this weekend. We ere promised gorgeous weather but it didn’t happen!


  3. Oh how awesome! Brad Paisley, VA Tech Tattoos, Coach Beamer, and Hotel Roanoke! Can’t ask for much more. The Hotel Roanoke is a nice place to stay. I have fond memories of my time there. So glad you enjoyed a great weekend. I hope you have a great work week, and VA is known for snow in March!!

  10. Sounds like a wonderful weekend!

    The weather was beautiful in Georgia and my daughter and I went and saw “Never say Never”…Justin Bieber Fever has rocked my little one but we still had fun even though I was not excited about seeing this movie. I have to say I like this kid after seeing the movie. We also go hair cut and toenails done…just a girls day which was fun!

  11. It looks like you had such a fun weekend!!!

    I recently just started to enjoy Country music. I don’t know what has gotten into me but I can honestly say that I now love it. I also love that Darius Rucker has now turned country!!! My husband and I saw him at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach a few year ago and he was amazing!!!
