Birthday treat!

My sweet hubby presented me with tickets to a Celtic Woman concert for my birthday back in December. The awesome concert was last night in Chattanooga.

There are mostly new performers in the group, but still a whole lotta talent was on stage. At least the violin player is still the same. MM is right partial to her. We saw the original group perform in FL, probably on their first US tour 10 years ago.

The bag piper was mighty easy on the eyes. There is something verra special about a guy in a kilt...and if he is playing an instrument, oh my stars! He was good. Verra good.

Upon arrival here, we took a drive up Lookout Mountain for a beautiful view of downtown Chattanooga. Next up was a stop at the towing museum, a total guy thing. Apparently tow trucks are still produced here. I hope to never need one. I opted to instead sit and read a book while MM checked out all the trucks and wheels.

A free shuttle ride down to the IMAX theatre was a winner--the feature was on whales and was quite informative as well as entertaining.

Dinner at an Irish Pub was a winner. Plus, we avoided traffic by leaving our car parked there and walking the few blocks to the auditorium.

Birthday season is now officially over. Thanks, honey. This was a winner.

Life is verra good, y'all! And rain is washing away a ton of pollen this morning. Hallelujah to that.

I'm so happy you finally cashed in on your birthday gift. I know how you love the Celtic Woman concert. Okay the guy in the kilt was pretty awesome too.

If I'm not around much this weekend it's because we have a cruise and we also have company. I'll catch up Sunday evening or Monday morning.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. Big hugs to you and scritches to the babies. :)

Looking up a fellas kilt while he squeezes his instrument sounds like the perfect way to end your birthday season! bahahahaha!

Have a perfectly pollen-free day. It seems to have subsided a bit here, too. Amen.
