Dance, Dance, Dance…all weekend long!

Okay, sorry I have been MIA for a little over a month. It’s not like I’ve been super busy and done lots of things, but for some reason I haven’t wanted to blog…until now.

I had a pretty eventful weekend almost a month back, April 10th through the 13th in fact. So, here’s the lowdown-April 10th, went out dancing. April 11th, went to a church dance, possibly the worst church dance I have ever been to-it had the lamest music! April 12th, Ciara’s going away happy hour party and dance (she left us for Utah…so sad!). I think I was one of about five people that were actually dancing.
Eliza, Layne, Ciara, Ben, John, and I drinking the largest virgin drink ever!
And last but not least, actually far from least. On April 13th Leah, Whitney, and I were able to score tickets to see Tift Merritt at the Tractor Tavern in Ballard.
For those of you that have not been or not familiar with Ballard, as I am (or anyone else I was with) it was a little tricky to find. It took us a little more than a half an hour to find it once we were in Ballard. But once we found it (and parking), it was actually a pretty neat place! I wish I had taken pictures of the inside, they had great decorations and a cute little stage. Not only were we lucky enough to see Tift Merritt, opening for her was the incredibly adorable Sara Watkins! Seriously, the cutest ever, and super talented. It was just her on the stage alternating with the fiddle and the ukulele, it was awesome! Then finally, after a huge break between the two, Tift came on. It was amazing-amazazazing, in fact! Words can not describe how awesome she was, not only is she an amazing singer, songwriter, and musician; but she’s also an amazing showman. Seriously, she put on the best show!
