A Concert, Peanut Butter and Jelly Burgers and Beer, and My Adorable Grandsons

Hello friends.

This week my youngest daughter turned 26.  I asked her what she wanted for her birthday and she told me she wanted to go see Black Jacket Symphony's Eagles cover concert in Birmingham, AL and she wanted me to go with her.  It was an outdoor concert in the Alabama heat, but since that is all she asked for, I had to go.  Here we are a the concert.  
We got our tickets from StubHub and had problems with them. Two hours on hold at their site and they never did ansswer the phone.  The people at Ticket Master were so wonderful and took care of us. We will always get our tickets from Ticket Master in the future!  What great customer service.  Here is Allie right before going into the concert.  My daughter is way cooler than I ever thought of being!
Here is our view at the concert.  I love the Eagles and it was fun that Allie knew all the words to all the songs. 
The concert was at the Avondale Brewing Company Ampitheater  in downtown Birmingham.  We even tried their peach beer which was great but then we switched to soda water as we had a long drive home. 
Before the concert, we ate at John Brown's Beer and Burger Joint.  They have some unusual hamburgers there like a burger with peanut butter and jelly and peanut butter and jelly beer.  We didn't have these, but I am going to try them next time.  I had the Elvis Burger - peanut butter and bacon.  Allie had a burger with pepper jelly and jalapenos.  Their beef comes from a special ranch and very high quality - you can taste the quality! This picture and the one before are my ticket to Elizabeth's T is for Tuesday Linky Party.  

I couldn't resist sharing this adorable picture - the grandsons went to Peach Park and posed for a fun picture.  

 
Hope you have a good week and happy T-Day!

Hugz,

Nancy

  1. THE Eagles? Like Hotel California, Desperado, and Take it Easy, EAGLES? Color me incredibly impressed. Awesome.

    I also would love to try that stout, although I'm not sure about the peanut butter stout. Even though I'm a vegetarian, your burgers look good. And how sweet to see your grandchildren, too.

    Thanks for taking us to that concert and to the brewery, as well as sharing more beer with us for T this Tuesday, Nancy. What a fabulous post, dear.

  4. Nancy you look like you had so much fun, when we were in Cabos in Mexico they had a trip to the hotel California, we didn’t go but one couple complained about the music, that caused much amusement!
    I don’t like peanut butter so would give that a miss but peach beer sounds good.
    What gorgeous GSs, so sweet, I’m guessing they aren’t always so sweet if they are anything like our three, ha,ha
    Happy t Day

  6. You and your daughter look gorgeous together Nancy. You are both very photogenic. I love the Eagles so I bet this was a good concert, and what better birthday gift than to go to a concert with your daughter as she wanted to spend it with you. That practically brings tears to my eyes. I'm close to my daughter too so I get it. And those burgers sound interesting. I would try those. How is peanut butter on a burger? I love peanut butter so I may have to give it a shot, even if it is at home. And your grandsons are adorable. Are any of these your birthday daughter's sons? This is a fun T day post Nancy. Glad you shared it with us. Have a great day. Hugs-Erika

  10. What a great memory she will have of her birthday. Sounds like you had a lot of fun. I'm not a big fan of peanut butter, but I think I'd like the Elvis burger. The little dudes looks so cute, too. Happy T Day

Never tried it in a hamburger (eat veggie burgers)...hmmmm..might have to try:-) TFS your absolutely wonderful time with your sweet daughter. Loved the photo of your cute grandsons too.

  16. How fabulous- cover groups are often so good - judging by the size of the crowd I guess these were good? Lovely photo of the two of you and it's great to see your grandchildren. Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx

    1. They were excellent, Chris. My daughter actually goes to most their concerts around here. She went to their Queen concert in South Carolina the week before. I always thought it sounded crazy but it was super fun and I will go again.

  17. Nancy gorgeous photo of you and your DD. She looks very cool. I love The Eagles music too and Hotel California always reminds me of a 10 week camping trip I did around Europe with a bus load of Canadians, South Africans and Aussies in my 20s. Those were the days lol. The burger is making me hungry and you can’t beat a burger with a beer. Gorgeous photo of your DGSs…they look cheeky lol. So glad that you had a great day. Hugs from Oz jx

  18. Wow! That sounds great! Were they good? The band I mean. Did they sound like the real Eagles?
    I think it was so really special that your daughter wants to go out with you. That in itself is so precious.
    I love the Eagles and probably could sing along to most of the better known ones.
    The burgers look interesting. I would def try some of the rather obscure ones. I always try what I don't know (Yep, risky, I know). Jelly? Am I right in thinking that in America jelly is what English people call jam? Interesting combination.
    Great photos, especially the one with your daughter. Something to treasure (photo as well as the experience).
    Happy belated T-Day,
    Hugs,
    Lisca

  19. Oh, I love the Eagles too Nancy! What a lovely thing to do with your beautiful daughter. She is just like my daughter Beth, who also happens to be 26. She has great style like your Allie.
    Your grandsons are so sweet, and those beers and burgers look very yummy.

  20. I really enjoyed this, Nancy! Thank you for sharing all the marvelous photos! I'm jealous because I love the Eagles, too, and all the food and beer looks amazing! Even so, and even as cool as your daughter is, those grandsons stole the show! Hugs, Darnell

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
