Blood, Sweat, and Beers

Last night, Josh and I went to the Blood, Sweat, and Beers tour featuring Kip Moore, Justin Moore, and Eric Church.  Josh had never been to a indoor concert, and when we heard Eric Church was coming to Biloxi, we had to get tickets.  We bought the tickets back in June, while Josh was still in Afghanistan, so it was the perfect coming home gift. 

We had amazing seats on the floor, 15 rows back.  Josh had no problem seeing (see problems you don't have when you're 6'9'', I on the other had constantly had to find holes to see...but they were still great!)
Justin Moore did an amazing tribute to a guy he had worked with through the Make-a-Wish Foundation.  When singing one of his biggest hits, "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away," he had everyone get their cellphones out, light them up, and sway as he sung.  Unfortunately, the young man didn't make it to see him in concert here, but it was an amazing gesture that his family in friends got to witness in the crowd.
As Josh said, we had a great time unleashing our inner "redneck" and just having a great date night!  I will have to say, Church's "I love your love the most" acoustically was the best...Josh disagrees....
Happy Saturday!

One of my best friends called me yesterday to complain that I haven't updated the blog in (her words, not mine) FOREVERRRRR! 
I started blogging for many reasons, but since moving back down to Mississippi, many family and friends use it as a way to stay connected with us (ok, so mostly Easton) since they can't see or talk to us on a daily or weekly basis.  So, everyone, I promise things on the blog will continue to get more active! 
Josh has finally went back to work on his "normal" schedule, so that should help, too!  Those first 5 or so weeks that Josh was home, we couldn't soak up enough family time.  It is amazing for me to look back and realize that the whole first month of Josh being deployed seemed to go by so slow, but the first month of him being home flew by!  Time can be such a funny thing sometime. 
So, to play catch up from where we have been, the past month has been so much fun, but pretty low key at the same time.  We have mostly stayed home and just played and had a great time! 
(Please ignore the massive amounts of pictures that will follow)...

 We have enjoyed finally being a family again!!

We also HAD to get new family pictures taken when Josh got home!  Forever Yours Photography did an amazing job and we were so pleased with the outcome!

So there's a new update :)  Hopefully I can jump back on regular posts soon :)!  Happy Wednesday!
