Rascal Flatts was a success in all its country boy band glory! It made me SO EXCITED for the upcoming Kenny Chesney concert in two weeks!!!!!! Yehaww!
You’ve gotta love country concerts…..take this lovely truck complete with a beer funnel for instance—
And I got to wear my favorite boots!
So, we sort of felt like we were the oldest ones there but it was still fun. We totally dressed up in cute dresses and boots and went “YEHAWWW!”
Before the concert we walked across the street and had a light dinner + glass of wine at The Wine Exchange. I had a glass of a super dry Riesling and DELICIOUS veggie quesadillas!
The quesadillas were awesome but were also about the size of my whole body. I ate two pieces and felt stuffed!! They were stuffed with veggies, grilled shrimp and a mix of feta and cheddar cheese. Yum!
I brought us some wine to-go (obviously)—
But unfortunately it was pretty gross and I didn’t drink my cup. It went out the window instead. Oh well.
Once AT the concert I bought one drink since they were $8 each! I ordered my standard “party drink”, which is vodka with soda and a splash of cranberry…..I sipped it super slow and made it last all night. Drinks at concerts (including water!!) are just waaaaay overpriced!!!
Unfortunately ALL the atm machines and credit card machines were down so instead of listening to Darius Rucker (from Hootie and the Blowfish!), Erin and I waited in the longest line possible to get some cash.
Now, I’m not going to even bring up how the drink 15 year old behind me spilled ranch dressing ALL over my chair. Yuck. 🙁
We still had a blast though and poor Derek must have felt a little out of his element with three screaming girls. He’s a good catch, Meghann!! 😉 I honestly think the funniest thing was at the very end, during the encore, Erin started screaming her head off and some backstreet looking boy hopped on stage. Turned out it was Tim Tebow, who is basically a national celebrity here in Florida. He “hummed” a little bit with Rascal Flatts then tossed a football down. It was hysterical!
We got home around 11:30, and I’m not going to lie, there were a few bites of ice cream eaten straight from the container. I’m so crazy, right?!
This morning I woke up around 8:00 and made a yummy breakfast. About a cup of Oikos with Nature’s Path Granola, MojaMix and blueberries!
Dexter in his box—
And I’m about to head out the door for church! I hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday!

The concert sounded like a really good time.
What is it with cats and empty boxes?!!!!
KristineJuly 26, 2009 at 9:15 am
Jenna! I have that dress! 🙂 Gotta love Anthro. The concert looks like it was a blast!
caitlinJuly 26, 2009 at 9:15 am
you know i have to say it….
TIM TEBOW SUCKS.
i feel better now. 🙂
Daria (Summer of the CSAs)July 26, 2009 at 9:21 am
Looks like you had a great time! I love your dress, and Dexter in his box. 🙂
MarathonValJuly 26, 2009 at 9:24 am
What a fun concert!!!!
Haha love that you had the ice cream straight from the container, doesn’t make me feel so bad for stirring up a batch of “vegan cheese” at midnight! I felt slightly weird about that 😉
Megan (Runner's Kitchen)July 26, 2009 at 9:48 am
mmm, I love Edy’s mint chocolate chip ice cream. so refreshing on a hot night! my cat loves empty boxes (and laundry baskets) too – I don’t even know why we buy him toys…..
ErinJuly 26, 2009 at 9:48 am
Country concerts are the BEST outdoors — good friends, good drinks, good music. 🙂
Spotty PrepJuly 26, 2009 at 9:51 am
Ya’ll weren’t the oldest people there- my mom and aunt were there!!! I’m very jealous I missed Tebow again- he got up on stage at a Kenny Chesney concert I was supposed to go to too!
RebeccaJuly 26, 2009 at 9:58 am
I love your boots!! Glad you had a fun time!! Sorry the kid spilled dressing on your chair!
Dexter is amazing!
Sarah W.July 26, 2009 at 10:03 am
Loooooooooove the cowboy boots!!!!!!! I so want a pair
JeanJuly 26, 2009 at 10:04 am
Looks like a fun night! Your veggie quesidilla looks really good! 🙂 I like RF, but I’m even more jealous of Darius Rucker. I just love that man’s voice! Probably because it reminds me of good times in High School with Hootie and the Blowfish!
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and HopeJuly 26, 2009 at 10:09 am
Glad you enjoyed your night despite the set backs. LOVE your outfit… those boots are too cute. And that quesadilla sure looks delicious. Get a good night’s rest!
Courtney (The Hungry Yogini)July 26, 2009 at 10:16 am
What a fun time!!! I LOVE your dress! So darn cute.
Have a great day today, Jenna. Looks like the rain held off til this morning!
Jen Papaya (papayafish.com!)July 26, 2009 at 10:26 am
Jenna! Your dress (or is it a skirt & tanktop??) is ADORABLE. I love it! And the cowboy boots make it even better! Sorry to hear about the ranch though :/ Gross.
amaniJuly 26, 2009 at 10:28 am
Nice dress. I would love it paired with jeans and a little jacket or sweater. Your breakfast looks good, too. I’m about to have almost the same, except I’ll use StoneyField Strawberry yogurt and Kashi Apple granola…yum
KristenJuly 26, 2009 at 10:29 am
TIM TEBOW WAS THERE?!!!
Haha, I’m allowed to get all girly about our campus celebrity, right? 😉
Michelle HisaeJuly 26, 2009 at 10:32 am
Concert food/drink is TOTALLY overpriced. It’s scary how much they up the prices!
StaceyJuly 26, 2009 at 10:37 am
Looks like tons of fun! I’m jealous, haha.
JBJuly 26, 2009 at 10:54 am
i’m glad you had such a fun time! you all looked so cute! i doubt you were the oldest people there. and my cat loves boxes too, haha.
Organic AshleyJuly 26, 2009 at 11:49 am
Jenna that is a ridicously cute Anthro dress. I am going straight their as soon as my pay check comes in!! Regular price or on sale?
jennaJuly 26, 2009 at 8:25 pm
Shhhh its actually a nightgown! 😉
NinaJuly 26, 2009 at 11:57 am
Glad you had a great time. You’ll have to do a post about how to make one drink last the whole night ;). Your outfit was so cute!
SusanJuly 26, 2009 at 12:52 pm
LOVE your cowboy boots and your dress! 🙂 I’ve always wanted a pair of cowboy boots, but they’re pretty rare here in Atlantic Canada 😛
Kathy (Moving Beyond Perfection)July 26, 2009 at 1:05 pm
It looks you had so much fun!! Bummer about the disgusting ranch dressing though!
kaileyJuly 26, 2009 at 1:13 pm
aww sounds like such a fun night 🙂 Loving the boots!
ShutupandRunJuly 26, 2009 at 1:31 pm
Jenna, I saw Kenny Chesney last night in Wyoming. It was GREAT so i know you will love your KC concert too. Also, I ate my very own bit of mint/choc cookie ice cream right out of the concert yesterday too. I think it tastes better that way for sure.
Christie @ Quit Your DietJuly 26, 2009 at 1:38 pm
Glad you had a great time!
LindaJuly 26, 2009 at 1:56 pm
Your pic of Dexter made me laugh out loud! Cats are so funny!
katherineJuly 26, 2009 at 1:57 pm
Sweet! Hootie and the Blowfish was the first concert I ever went to. I can’t believe Darius is still singing? Does he have an album? Looks like one dang good time!
CourtneyJuly 26, 2009 at 1:58 pm
Looks like you guys had a really good time! 😀
Krissy - Single ServingJuly 26, 2009 at 2:39 pm
Looks like a great night!
And there is no shame in eating out of the ice cream container! 🙂
PamJuly 26, 2009 at 2:42 pm
Looks like lots of fun! I’m secretly in love with cowboy boots! I want a red pair.
KikiJuly 26, 2009 at 2:56 pm
looks like u girls had tons of fun! i am so drooling over those quesadillas! x kiki
JessicaJuly 26, 2009 at 3:06 pm
Love your dress!!!! I’m wearing a very similar one out shopping today! 😀
I always crave your mojamix when I see it on the blog!! I need to get myself some!
LizzieJuly 26, 2009 at 3:16 pm
Jenna – you would freak out in my hometown. They have a 2 week country music festival every year and the population of our town/city triples for those two weeks (I am not kidding – you can’t get a hotel room and heaps of people end up camping on the river. My parents even started renting our bedrooms out!). They close off the main street, have line dancing, performers, markets etc. It’s insane – my husband might have had second thoughts on marrying me when his first visit there happened to coincide with the festival – hee hee!
Glad you had fun and relaxing time at the concert – you definitely deserved it!
Cait (Cait's Plate)July 26, 2009 at 4:17 pm
HAH! Love the boots Jenna – looks like you had a blast! And those quesadillas look AMAZING!
*Andrea*July 26, 2009 at 4:48 pm
love your dress!!! country concerts are amazing and why i wish i went to more/lived in the south. southern people are so fun and wayyyy more friendly than up here 😉
FitFoodieJuly 26, 2009 at 4:56 pm
Tim Tebow?! Wow…I wish I was there! I would love to see his muscles up close, haha.
Looks like you had a great time! Vino & Country music are a match made in heaven 🙂
emilyJuly 26, 2009 at 6:05 pm
ohmygoodness, that dress!!!
lizaJuly 26, 2009 at 6:53 pm
I admire the balance in your life! I wish I had that self control with my attitude (I woulda screamed at that 15 year old), that food, and those club soda and vodkas..have you always been this way?
jennaJuly 26, 2009 at 7:12 pm
hahaha I’m exactly sure what you mean. I probably would have had another drink but my wallet was empty! lol
Katie (yes, I want cake)July 26, 2009 at 7:11 pm
Ooh! That dress/boots combo is super cute and it looks like you had so much fun!
BecJuly 26, 2009 at 7:25 pm

karenJuly 26, 2009 at 7:32 pm
Love Rascal Flatts, best show ever…….and Tim Tebow is the best QB, such charm, what a night it must have been.

KimberlySJuly 26, 2009 at 11:47 pm
I have to admit, I’m not a big fan of country music… but I’d go to a country concert just to wear those rockin’ boots and that adorable dress!!!!! Just LOVE ’em 🙂 Happy Sunday!
AngelaJuly 27, 2009 at 5:10 pm
HAHAH Dexter in his box is SO my cat!!!!
TayJuly 28, 2009 at 5:20 pm
RAAAAHHH I am so BEYOND jealous you go to go to their concert!! I love them! And Darius 🙂 Sounds like you had a great time (minus the ranch incident?? Yuck-O!!)
JtineJuly 29, 2009 at 10:40 am
Jenna, what kind of boots are those?
I just bought a new pair of cowgirl boots and I love them so much I want to buy more!
jennaJuly 29, 2009 at 10:43 am
These are Steve Maddens but I got them off Ebay about six years ago!
