I'm Alive And It's A Miracle

It's official--all concerts are over, millions of calories have been consumed [mostly resulting from millions of mozzarella sticks], I have all sorts of new Carnie friends [gosh I'm gonna miss them], I look like a haggard ball of Lord knows what, and I have washed my feet more times than I've brushed my teeth. Whoever said county fairs aren't life or death situations is lying. I am convinced I am dying. Also, whoever said you can't drink at county fairs is lying. There is magic [read silliness] in bringing in your own water bottles. Mark that one down and keep it in your memory bank all you 21+ readers. The good news is I overcame my fear of Ferris wheels and it only cost me $10 to do so. Since when is a Ferris wheel ride $10? Fricken inflation. 

In other non-fair news, we close on our new house next week [!!!!!] The stomach ulcerating part of this is that we are remodeling it from top to bottom so all of that starts in a few days. I'm pretty confident I booked two vacations which will be taking place in the midst of all of that because WHO WANTS TO DO WORK? In all seriousness though, I can't wait to watch this house transform and you best believe I will be sharing every ounce of that on here and on Instagram [#SchradersOnTheMove, because every home remodel deserves its own hash tag]. The goal is to actually keep this house after the work is all done unlike that teeny little lake cottage we thought was a good idea last year. 

Regardless, I apologize for tardiness around this joint, it's just all of the above paragraphs fault. 

To conclude today's post, I figured I would end with a thousand and ten pictures of the last few days. I was going to go for a thousand and eleven but figured that may be too much. Here we go. 

Our good friends, Parmalee. The same good friends who forgot to call us up on stage. Jerks. 

 My favorite concert of the past few days, my homeboy Thomas Rhett.

 Everybody try and grab Tyler Farr's hand...he wants to grab yours

Justin Moore--the redneck of all rednecks

Remember them? I barely did either.

And that concludes the busiest week of my life, until next year fair...

  5. Looks like you had lots of fun! Justin Moore is my favorite, I have seen him 7 times and he still never gets old (promise I am not redneck) The first time I saw him the power went out between the opening act and him and it took them over an hour to get it playing. In the meantime JM was drinking on his bus so when he came out he was slightly intoxicated and invited everyone up to the stage. My friends and I were front row, singing along in his microphone and there might have been a little butt grabbing by me lol

  10. Super jealous of all those concerts! I would love to see any of them! I did see 3 Doors Down last year with Daughtry and they were excellent! I forgot how many songs I knew.

  11. omg the ferris wheel pix give me massive heebie jeebies haha. i'm terrified of them! and every time my little sister comes to visit and we go to Disney, she forces me on it. and it's HUGE and they buckets SWING and i lose my shit! it's really funny after and would probably make a viral youtube video but in the moment i'm screaming and hyperventilating and crying. when the buckets swing, it literally feels like you're falling to your death. dang i hate ferris wheels so much :(

    on a less traumatizing note, that pink dress is so pretty! :)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
