So... I Wrestled A Bear Once

Last Saturday I met up with Brian in Louisville and we went to another rock concert. We saw Oceano, Chimaira, and I Wrestled a Bear Once. You've probably never have heard of any of those bands. And most likely you would hate them... They are all heavy metal bands.

I have ALWAYS loved loud heavy rock music! (But not Death Metal, because that stuff is just wrong) Call me a metal head, whatever. I love it. I love being in with the crowd and feeling the loud music vibrate through my body. I have an ongoing love affair with Avenged Sevenfold (they are my sexy boyfriends and musically amazing) and Zakk Wylde from the Black Label Society has a special place in my heart. Not cause I think that he is sexy, because he not. But musically he is awesome. He was the guitarist for Ozzy and Brian said that he saw him at Ozzfest once and he played the guitar with his teeth. His teeth. And it sounded great. Which is amazing. And that's why I think that he's amazing. But he wasn't at this concert so enough about him.

The concert was held at a hall, which is nice because its a smaller venue and more personal. After their set is done, usually you can meet and talk with them.
This is Oceano.

This is I Wrestled A Bear Once. They are now on my top list of music that I like.The name of the band is awesome and the lead singer is a freaking girl!! She was absolutely amazing.

This is the pit. Brian likes to run away from me and jump into the middle.


Holy Crap. These guys had such a great stage presence, the whole room was buzzing with energy

The best part of the concert... Spending it with this guy.

It ended at 1am, I am a hot mess but everyone is a hot mess at that time.

Ski Trip!!!

Last Friday, in honor of the Winter Olympics, we took a trip up to Paoli Peaks. We went up with our friends the Dassel's and their two kids. No, I know what your thinking. I did not take all of my spawns! I left all but two kids at home. I'm not that crazy thinking that all of them need to go skiing... That would just suck.

Anyways, the two lucky winners that were allowed to come were Reese and Kailyn. This was the girls first time skiing. Reese, oh my heavens, well she is just amazing. We didn't do any lessons and this chick was flying down the hills within the first hour out. Couldn't freakin believe how well she did!! Next time, she's going snow boarding with her dad. And she will probably be awesome at it...

 Kailyn on the other hand hated it. She was too cold and she hated the lifts more than anything. We started skiing around 8pm at 10:30pm she was done. A lot of tears where involved and all she wanted was a hot chocolate. After her little episode and a hot chocolate she decided that she would just play in the snow and wait for everyone. At 1am she decided that she wanted to try it again. Brian took her out and she liked it just a little bit more. Next time we go, I am definitely going to sign her up for lessons.  If you ask her now if she liked skiing she will say that she loved it.

All photo's were taking with my iPhone, so they kinda suck. At least I took some and now we have memories...

Brian and I rocking it

Happy to not be outside

Angry that I want her to go out again

Reese and her best friend in the world Reese.
These girls are freaking cute. They do everything together!!!

A picture that I accidently took of my face. Enjoy

Brian and Nene

Ree was super awesome and could not be stopped. I barely even saw her that night.

Another picture of me. It was so cold that night. I seriously have a ski coat on, a fleece jacket, a fleece pullover, long sleeve shirt, t shirt, tank etc. My coat could barely zip up! But hey, at least I was warm!!!
