this past weekend [april 27-29th] me, charlie, and our good friends teleatha and her husband, bryan all headed out to stagecoach.
with our cowboy boots & hats, and giant belt buckles packed we were ready to go! [in order to be fully prepared for a three day country fest- you gotta bring the right gear.]
[these giant windmills remind me of driving out to visit my grandparents growing up. they're still mesmerizing to me to this day!]

we headed out to the [nasty] california desert to a rinky-dink town called Indio.
never heard of it? you're not missing much. [i can't express how much i hate, yes hate, the desert. i wore pants the first day to stagecoach...BAD IDEA. almost passed out. multiple times. husband gave me the go ahead to wear my bathing suit underneath my beach shorts and tank top from then on. thank you for saving me from heat stroke, babe! ha.]
unless it's stagecoach weekend. then you're definitely missing out.
it was a BLAST!

every single country artist we saw were amazing. sounded even better in person than their albums.
favorite of the weekend?
luke bryan. definitely. [we HIGHLY recommend seeing him in concert. charlie and i both agreed we'd pay a pretty penny to see him again. but next time up close and personal. he's THAT great!] luke had us up dancing, singing and laughing the entire time.
but let's not forget about all the other singers..
eli young band, sara evans, alabama [charlie's favorite], jason aldean, justin moore, blake shelton, miranda lambert [and she brought along the pistol annies, too!], the band perry, martina mcbride, aaron lewis, sheryl crow, brad paisley and many more!
[the "mane" stage. get it? get iiiit??]
