Why yes, I was in the same room as Matthew McConaughey this weekend...

On Saturday night after Gibsons party Matt and I were able to go on a date. (Thank you Grandma and Grandpa... Oh and Trish for the passes!) We went to a private concert in the MGM, to see Blake Shelton and Sugar Land! So much fun, good food, and private means not very big so it was awesome, like 15 feet from the stage awesome... Even more awesome when Trace Atkins and Miranda Lambert show up too!! Unfortunately we didn't have a camera, so no pictures. Oh well. Anyway this concert turned out to be only the beginning of our country filled weekend. While we were there we ended up meeting a really nice couple from Arkansas, he works for Pepsi, and apparently they had been in Vegas for a few days, taking part in all the ACM events that were going on in Vegas. Anyway, long story short, they had connections to a guy who had extra tickets to the ACM's, and the All Star Jam afterward. After a quick text to Grandma and Grandpa to see if they'd babysit again, we were on our way! So fun!

So we spent Sunday evening in the company of some really cool people. Namely Tim and Faith, Taylor, Brad, Miranda , Carrie, and a few more... We weren't allowed to take cameras into the awards show, but here are some pictures from the All Star Jam. Again a small event, so like 15 feet from the stage again! It was awesome and such a memorable weekend!
