Our bestie girls from San Fran were back in Florida for a few days. We had Sunday Funday with them and of course CW searched to see if there were any good bands we like that were playing in the area. YES. Gavin DeGraw was going to be at the Hard Rock. It was perfect. The music gods do love us. They are “forever in our favor”.
Starting out the day right…a little bubbly to welcome J&K.
Gavin was playing at the Hard Rock Cafe.
It’s a pretty cool venue.
Couldn’t help but get some pics of the decor. You know me…
SOOOOO happy to see our girls.
CW and I first saw Gavin on the 2004 Rock Boat. Shortly after that his song got picked up and
landed the gig for One Tree Hill.
As an FYI–Zac Brown Band was on that cruise too, along with the many, many other bands that we have followed and loved throughout the years, including:
So–yes, that also means that among other now popular songs we were singing “Chicken Fried” wayyyyy back when…
Nothing like a concert in the middle of the day.
Next time we’ll see Janet and Kelly it will be in the mountains!!! We are major traveling companions.
Gavin was in a SUPER good mood that day. He was all smiles, sang the old songs we love and put on a really great show.
He was jumping all over the place =)
Hi to us.
Peas in a pod. Seriously–they were for sure separated at birth.
These three go WAY back so many years when they all worked at the hospital together here. I’m always in good company if I need medical attention haha. Knock on wood–it’s never been me who needs it. Ah-hem….frost-bite……
Kel captured this pic. So sweet.
A little gambling and we were ready to head back to our place to watch the Bucs game and hang out. Jeff and Ellen came on over and it was a par-tay.
I had ordered some Lou Malnati’s pizzas for us. Yeah–that “someone” was me.
Kelly’s birthday is in a couple of weeks, so a cake was also in order. Note: we all know that Publix has THE best cakes, but this one was beyond ridiculous. White and chocolate cakes with vanilla and chocolate puddings.
Oh–and then how totally random that we stumbled upon a Gavin DeGraw concert on TV!!
So thankful for amazing friends, great music and being able to celebrate another healthy year and birthday together. See you soon girls!!!
