I Could Not Ask for More

Happy Monday from sunny, warm Florida. (sorry, had to make you a little jealous) We had a great weekend and we're ready to kick off a great week.

On Friday, Fred and I went to see one of my favorite musicians, Edwin McCain. We had front row seats and I was so excited. We were so close that we could actually see his set list. When I caught a glimpse at it and it didn't have my favorite song, "Solitude" on it, I was a little upset. Fred and I both yelled out to him for a request, but no such luck. I was a little disappointed, but overall we had a great time and I enjoyed hearing "I'll Be" and "I Could Not Ask for More" live.

I can't believe Edwin cut off his long hair.

We managed to make friends with his opening act, Erick Baker. He was phenomenal and super sweet.

And Knox took his first plane ride Saturday. Yep, he made it! I was nervous the entire time, but he did great. He only let out a few yelps, but as long as I was petting his nose, he was good. Here's a pic of Knox on the plane mid-air:
On Sunday, we spent the day with my family (it's been long overdue). We drove around town. We took Knox for a walk (you wouldn't believe how many people stop and talk to you when you have a dachshund and want to talk about theirs). And finished the night off with a delicious meal at Tommy Bahama. Perfect for our beach getaway.

Did you happen to catch the SAG awards last night? Here's my take on the fashion:

Short Sleeved Dresses: NOT a fan!! These ladies look drab.

Blush Dresses: Loved and these women all looked gorgeous!

White Dresses: I love them, but I'm not feeling Amy Adams dress. And Winona's dress is like a wedding dress. But, isn't Natalie Portman the cutest thing?

Red Dress: Wow!! These ladies all looked ravishing in red!!

Plunging Necklines: Beautiful! I wish I could pull this off.

Patterned Dresses: I love Mila Kunis' dress, but the other's aren't my favorites. Since Claire was my top choice at the Golden Globes, I'm surprised she went with this dress.

My best dressed award goes to: Lea Michelle. So simple and elegant! Who do you think was best dressed? I can't wait to see what they all choose for the Oscars!

So, what did you do this weekend?

I didn't see the SAG awards, but from your blog recap, the blush dresses are definitely my favorites!

Aly @ Analyze This said...

Knoxie looks so cute! I would be nervous as well!

Natalie Portman looked STUNNING!!! Loved that dress much more than the one she wore to the Golden Globes!

Marian said...

I thought Heather (Brittney from Glee) looked A-Maz-Ing. She was my favorite, hands-down!

Natasha said...

I think Hilary Swank looked gorgeous!!! I wasn't that wowed by many last night--boo =(

Glad you guys had a great time in FL and I think the picture of Knox is HILARIOUS!!!

I like Lea Michelle's dress but I just can't stand her so I can't ever put her on my top list. Heather Morris looks great though.

Also, I love that you are wearing the AT Loft top. I love that shirt.

I was definitely NOT impressed by very many women at the SAG awards. I LOVE Mila Kunis and Lea Michelle's dresses though! The rest I was just kinda, ehhh?

Jessica said...

Glad to hear your having a great time in FL! Jealous you get to enjoy some warm weather. :(

Mila Kunis' dress was BEAUTIFUL! I agree with you on Amy Adams, it just didn't compliment her shape very well.
