Wow, it has been such a long time! I apologize to my faithful readers (if I have any). Hello, anyone out there? :o)
Spring has definitely sprung here in Madison. We are so excited to take advantage of everything Madison has to offer in the spring and you should be too. We need some visitors, haven't had too many lately because of the cold and snow, but the farmer's market will start up soon, we can ride our bikes around, and enjoy the many outdoor eateries. We are also getting a head start on our garden and will hopefully be planting some seeds to start inside this weekend. I have no idea what I am doing, so stay tuned to hear how it goes.
Since the last update, Andrew surprised me with tickets to see my most favorite band ever, Rascal Flatts! Because I made such a big deal about his 30th, we totally didn't do anything for Valentine's Day. It's not that I am a big fan of the Hallmark holiday, because we show each other our love every day, it's just that we usually do dinner or something. So, in Andrew's words, because I was such a great wife, he got me tickets (that I was begging him for) to see Rascal Flatts and a hotel room so we could stay in Milwaukee.
Needless to say, the concert was freakin' amazing. We traded our so-so seats at the back of the arena, for seats closer on the side because it wasn't full. We could dance and sing the whole time! They opened with Summer Nights and closed with Life is a Highway, my two favs at the moment. Darius Rucker opened for them and also did a great job. You may know him as the lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish, but he is now a country superstar. He did though, rock out to Only Wanna Be With Yoooouuuuu.
It was probably one of the best concerts ever! Although, we do have Simon & Garfunkel AND James Taylor and Carole King concerts coming up in May, so we will just have to see how those are. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE live music!!
Here are some pictures from the night.
Ange and I in our seats.
Oh yeah, and we did a wine tasting at the Wollersheim Winery Open House with the Wiederhoefts too. It was great trying all the wines (their whites are the best, the reds are nothing special--you know how we love our reds) and it was a beautiful day too. Here are some more pictures...
Jeanette and Adam are quoted because they used the winery's Prairie Fume as the wine at their wedding.
Looking for eagles!
Ok, so I think that's it for now. Hopefully I won't wait so long to post next time. We have a lot of fun things coming up, so I'll try to keep updated. Seriously though, please let me know if you read this, or if it's for my own joy.
