Date Night and Garth Brooks

I'm country through and through. Talk to me two minutes and you know exactly how Southern I am! There was a time in my life I tried to deny it, but now I just choose to embrace it! I've loved country music my entire life. So many of my childhood memories have amazing country songs woven throughout. My all time favorite artist is the one and only Garth Brooks. I'm pretty sure I know every word to every song he sings. All through his retirement, I swore up and down I'd go see him if I ever had the chance.

When I heard the announcement that Garth would be touring again, I knew I had to have tickets! I waited an hour and twenty minutes, sat through two sold out shows, and finally got tickets to his third Atlanta show. I ended up with great seats and I was beyond excited!

This sweet man made sure I was going to see Garth Brooks! He told me to do whatever I had to do to get us tickets and he would take me.

I was honestly excited about just having a date night with my husband all to myself. We've had so much going on lately that we haven't even had a chance to have a date. We stopped by Cabela's on the way and had plenty of time to ourselves.

We had an awesome buffalo chicken salad at Hudson Grille before the concert.

It had grilled chicken covered in buffalo sauce, crumbled blue cheese, and celery. I'd love to make a version of this at home. It had tons of flavor, but I think I'd cut back on the hot sauce just a little!

The concert didn't start until 10:30 pm, so we had some time to kill. Ryan took me on a carriage ride through downtown Atlanta. The horse was absolutely beautiful. 

I'm so fortunate to be married to such an amazing man. I know so many people think they have the best husband in the world, but I know without a doubt Ryan's the best thing in the world to me. I know he's absolutely perfect for me.

We finally got seated and Garth started playing a little after 11:30. He played so many of his old songs and he put on an amazing show!

We headed back to our car around 1:30 am and got out of Atlanta as quickly as possible! We finally made it home by 3:30 am. We got about three and a half hours of sleep before getting up and taking Caleb to his football game!

Nothing looked better at 8:00 in the morning than these two cups of coffee! We were absolutely exhausted!

This cutie went back to his Nana and Pa's for some playtime so we could grab some more sleep. Thank goodness for grandparents!


  1. What a fun date night! I am from the northeast and people think I am crazy that I love country music lol. Your family is wonderful and your stories with your hubby remind me to not give up on dating.

  2. Your so blessed to have such an amazing husband who told you to do what you could to make your dream come true! That's rare, sounds like an amazing night.
