Weekend of Concerts and More: and What I Really Thought About The Mrs. Carter Tour

Last weekend, my husband took me to a few concerts. 
We were invited to come to see Tye Tribbett at The Howard Theater in Washington, DC for a pre-album release concert. 
It was both of our first times at The Howard Theater since it had reopened and we were really excited to check it out. The venue is an awesome place for a concert – the only downside can be that the space is first come first served (or seated) otherwise you have to stand. 
I tried to warn Amos about this rule just based on the pictures that I have seen of other events that I had seen there but he didn’t seem to be too bothered. So of course, when we get there not long before the concert started, we had no where to sit… 
Well, I hadn’t pulled the pregnancy card before however, ever since the Delta Convention at the beginning of the month, I had learned my standing limit and knew that I would not be able to stand for that long period of time throughout the concert. I went to the door and asked for a manager just to see if I could get a chair and do you know that at first he told me about three times, “But if I give you a chair, I would have to give every person with an excuse a chair.”… you did see that I said three times right? because I do not take no for an answer when it comes to something as reasonable as a seat in a partially filled venue. So he said “I’m not trying to be mean about it.” and just before the pregnant Incredible Hawk was about to come out and tell him how this would be horrible for him… my husband even stepped over to the conversation because he must’ve sensed that I was about to “go there” with the manager… The manager said to someone taking tickets at the door to grab the chair behind me and to place it inside for me to sit down. I said “thank you.” and had a great seat for the concert. 
Glad I did – the concert was AMAZING!
I am so excited about what I would call The Tribbett’s “come back”. His previous album was not a favorite of mines in the least. He kind of got away from what made him Tye Tribbett when he was with G.A. however, his new album Greater Than has some really great material. The vibe was amazing and we had a great time!
This week at work, our computer networks have been down which led us to not be productive in the least. Also a reason why its taking so long for me to update my blog lately. 
When there are there are no computers there is nothing to entertain you except your phone and a bunch of post-its. 
After my Tour of Duty it was time to get ready for Beyonce! Did some quick make up – added a few lashes and pinned my hair up. When my husband came to pick me up from work, I was so excited to be on my way!!!
We decided that tickets to see Beyonce would be a great way to celebrate our upcoming 3rd Wedding Anniversary. 
We headed to the Verizon Center after loading up on good eats at Matchbox in Chinatown. I was more than ready to see Beyonce give me a great show!

Truth is – for us it was just o.k. It was not rock my socks off like I had expected it to be. I thought I was going to be the only one who felt that way but every time I looked over at my music loving husband and he was half sleep. As to not ruin it for anyone who may be going to see it and is still excited about it – trust me my blah attitude about the concert had really nothing to do with Beyonce because she gave a great performance per usual. It had EVERYTHING to do with the production.
The flow of the production made it such a snore: 
she changed her clothes way too much.. and for what!? each costume change came with a video and a dance break and that happened every two songs. 
I think I have seen too many Beyonce Concerts and I am sad… the thrill is gone. 
A little retail therapy to cure that though – 
I broke my rule of not buying anything for Princess and went Carter’s Happy!
It helped, but it definitely opened a gateway because now I get coupons upon coupons upon discounts. Not a good thing for my pockets. 

Hope you have an awesome weekend!

    I'm glad you got your seat! That manager was a little of a, how do I say this nicely? I can't. Moron.

    I've never been to a Beyonce concert. I really want to see one, one day. Even if it wasn't that great of a show for you glad you got those cute outfits for baby girl. I've been doing crazy buying cute Carter outfits for my niece. I love their stuff!

    jasmine I just came across your blog and am so happy that I did! I've been wanting to find a blog that talked about the whole TTC/Infertility issues and so glad to find you here. I'm so grateful for people like you who are open and honest about your journey. My husband and I (fortunately) do not have trouble TTC but (unfortunately) cannot seem to STAY pregnant and deal with recurrent pregnancy loss. It's been a tough road but I wish I could be more open like you to share our story too! xoo

    Hi Cindy, first welcome to my blog! I am so appreciative of your comment. It warms my heart when perhaps something I may right may help or encourage someone. It took me over a year to be ok with being open about it, but I did find that after the disappointment there was some kind of freedom in talking about it and it helped people just “be there” for me. I'll be praying for you. You never know someone may find community in your story as well. It has certainly opened up a new community of support for me as well.

    Carters will definitely break you…heck having a girl will definitely break you! You will find every reason of WHY she will NEED to have everything! You should hear me in the stores pleading my case of WHY Emma NEEDS this dress, these shoes, these bows…girl anything! Then I'm the mommy that sometimes we need to match, so I have it so I have to go find her one…my husband tolerates it but I know I get on his nerves!! LOL!

    Cindy, we all have different journey's to becoming a mother, as well as different journeys in motherhood. Like Jasmine said you never know who you may meet along the way that you can help or that can help you in your journey. What I have found as a blogger is that there is always someone there for support and just like Jasmine said I will be praying for you too!
