The Breakdown!

So, for those of you that don’t know, I commute with my dad up to Bellingham (live in Seattle) to work four days a week. Today, unfortunately, about 20 miles outside of Bellingham near Alger, we broke down. The engine overheated and we were fortunate to be right near a rest stop when that little red light went on.

After about a half an hour of debating what to do, we decided to chance it and head back on the side roads to Seattle. Unfortunately, the car didn’t want to do that, about 2 miles down the back way (I think it was 99 or something) it started to overheat again, we pulled over and as soon as we did that the engine died again. So much for our brilliant plan, my dad then called AAA and we were towed home by a hero named Carl. Actually a very nice man and didn’t seem too upset about his unplanned trip to Seattle.

Here are some pictures of the ordeal; I had to take a few because the place we broke down at was crazy. I’m not sure what I liked the most-the upside down refrigerator or the building filled with parrots squawking.

Said refrigerator, a rundown basketball hoop, and boat (apparently for sale, if you’re interested).

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream!

I had a dream the other night that was pretty amusing. When I told Hannah about it she nearly choked on the lasagna she was eating. Anyway, the gist of it was there was this guy that I and another girl both liked. In the dream he told me that it was me that he liked, the other girl was so upset that she started gnawing at my foot. When I looked down I saw that she was incredibly ugly, in fact she looked like a man. So, apparently I see her as this repulsive man/dog that I wouldn’t even notice unless she’d attached herself to my foot. Obviously I don’t have a high regard for this girl, whoever she is.

Keith Urban Concert Part Two-The Concert

We were lucky to see The Wreckers as the opening act. Here is Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp on stage.

When we got there we found that there was a TV camera obscuring our view of the stage. They weren’t bad seats at all, third row from the floor, but not if you have to strain you neck to see. So after The Wreckers had preformed one of the ushers asked us if we wanted to move. We asked him where the new seats would be and he said in the second row directly in front of the stage. Like most women that love Keith Urban and would dream about an opportunity to be “close enough to touch”-we said yes.

Although, we we’re still quite a bit away from the stage, they did do a couple numbers on the ramp and on the mini stage close to us.

Some of my favorite shots!

The Finale-with confetti and everything!

It was the best concert I have ever been to and it definitely goes in the top ten nights of my life! There is no denying that I will be there when he comes to town again! :D

Keith Urban Concert Part One-Dinner at T.S. McHugh’s

Before the concert Annie, Jessie, Leah and I all went out to dinner at T.S. McHugh’s. It’s an Irish Pub located in Downtown Seattle near Key Arena (where the concert was being held). After a quick 15 minute wait (they weren’t taking reservations due to the concert) we were seated in the bar (we are all well over 21).
The Menu. Leah and I seated at the booth before dinner.
This made me laugh; in the bar they had a countdown to St. Patrick’s Day.
What I couldn’t finish of my meal-fish and chips, I couldn’t go to an Irish Pub and not try their fish and chips. Although, I think I would have liked it better if they had been chips and not french fries. Leah’s babeolicious glamour shot of me.
