Weekending | Jake Owen Overload

Ugh another Monday...why does the weekend fly by so quickly?! This weekend was one for the books because it was when I went to my first country concert in Houston! The concert didn't start until the evening so we did our weekend errands early and then got ready to head out to the concert. Luckily the stadium where they held it was practically in our backyard, so it took all of 10 minutes to get there and parked. Also luckily, it was a very very light crowd...either the PR for the concert wasn't done properly or people didn't want to come out so far for it...but Jake Owen was SO worth it guys!

We got there and headed up to our club level seats and waited to meet up with our friends. We all then grabbed some yummy food and drinks and watched the opening acts. Before Jake Owen the performances were by LANco, Aaron Watson & Frankie Ballard. I thought each of those sets were ok and we basically just spent that time eating and catching up with our friends.

As soon as Jake Owen made it onto the stage, the vibe changed and it felt electric. He opened his set with some of his classics and you could tell how much fun he was already having up there. Unfortunately our friends had a long drive home and decided to head out half way through his set.

We walked down from the club level seats to head to the field for the last hour of his performance. This was literally the best thing we could have done. Since there wasn't a huge crowd to begin with, and most people had headed out, we basically got to walk up to about 15 feet in front of the stage without any huge crowds. It felt like a super intimate performance at that part and I think Jake Owen actually preferred it being a smaller, more intimate crowd. He continued to belt out hit after hit for the next hour. It was truly a special experience being able to just walk up and be that close to where he was performing. I'll leave y'all with some pictures and video of our night.

Trying to get a selfie with Jake Owen in the back, but of course the lights ruined that.

^This isn't zoomed in a bit, that's how close we got!

Sunday was spent cleaning and prepping for all our guests coming over. It was so strange because the whole day felt off with the whole time change. I snuck out a bit to grab a few necessities (and non-necessities) from Sephora during the VIB Rouge 20% off, if you're a rouge, you have until tonight to grab your goodies! I got some holiday sets for Christmas gifts so that was some people crossed off my list. Of course it got dark super early which sucked because now when I get home, it'll be dark...BOOO!!! After eating and cleaning up everything I changed into my PJ's and drank some yummy tea until bedtime.

I wish the weekend was more relaxing, but I had a blast and it was all totally worth not relaxing. Now onto the week, hope y'all have a fantastic one!

  5. Hooray for your first concert in Houston! That's so weird that there weren't more people there, especially for a Jake Owen performance, but I bet that it's probably because it wasn't advertised well, like you said. But better for y'all since you got so close! I feel like it's a major letdown if you don't get something fun at the Sephora sale, right?

  6. I hate how quickly it gets dark now. :( So weird there weren't more people at the concert! I'm so glad you had a fun time! :)
