More concerts and work travels

Hey there, I ALMOST let a week go by without posting.  You got to admit, I've been trying hard since I've come back. LOL
So this week has been crammed packed starting with this past Tuesday night's concert.  We saw the Revolution 3 tour which is Bush , Stone Temple Pilots, and The Cult.   We typically don't ever pass on The Cult when they come to town.  It was such a great concert and we had bought the cheap seats in the lawn and we had a nice breeze which helped.  Ironically, it poured down rain up until a few hours before the concert started and then not another drop.  It was perfect!  I had never seen STP while Scott Weiland was the lead and then of course he died a few years back (2015). They replaced him with another guy Jeff Gutt who does  a pretty darn good job as the lead.  I had already seen Bush in the 90's and The Cult 3 or 4 times but it was still a show we wanted to see. A band called The Dirty Hooks actually opened for all of them and yall- we really enjoyed them!!! The drummer is a chick who also has great vocals.  If you're on Spotify, you can find them there.
concerts are the best for people watching


Yesterday, I flew to Salt Lake City which is where i'll be working until next Friday the 24th. I am supporting a conversion which means i'll also be working tomorrow and potentially Sunday.  I've been here before a few times so I really don't mind working from here.   I will tell you a funny story ( to me at least), I was using my google maps app on my phone and as I was approaching my work location I saw the Harley symbol for their store, I was thinking that's cool that i'll be somewhat close to Harley, when right when I passed it my GPS said you've reached your destination.  I laughed out loud thinking how does google maps know my love for Harley.  I didn't see my location anywhere so I pulled over in a parking lot and called an employee here for the correct address and when they told me, it was actually behind another store facing the street and i'm directly across the street from Harley!  So cool and special bonus that I can hear the bikes coming and going all day. I stopped by today in fact on my lunch hour. 
Then speaking of extra bonuses,  Todd also flew in last night a couple hours after I did and he's working all day with one of his brokers. Which means his company paid for his trip.  He also has some family here who we're having dinner with tonight.  I am so excited to have Todd here for a few days because that really breaks up the loooong time I have to be here. Send prayers that tomorrow goes smoothly and I don't have to work too late so I can show Todd around.
Last night, I just happen to glimpse out my bedroom hotel window and spotted the sunset.  It was so pretty! 






So that's my week- concerts, rain, packing, flying, working.  :)
Have a great weekend and have fun and be safe!

  2. Hi, Holli!

    Thanks for the update, dear friend! I remember your posts about The Cult from previous years. I'm happy to know the weather cleared in time for the concert, that you enjoyed a refreshing breeze, did some people watching, and enjoyed all of the bands. I am particularly interested in bands with female singers and musicians and I intend to check out The Dirty Hooks.

    I've never been to SLC. Thanks for posting some pics. That is a funny story about your GPS voice announcing that you had arrived at your destination when you were next to the Harley shop. For you that was a pilgrimage to Mecca. I'm glad Todd was able to join you there for a while to ease the loneliness. I hope you enjoyed having dinner with his family and showing him around the area.

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend Holli!

  4. It is so awesome that you go to concerts! We drove through Salt Lake City the day you arrived. I was thinking how cool it would have been to meet up with you there. That's so funny about the Harley store and where you are working. Well that's so awesome about Todd being with you. Hope it's a great week for you.

    1. Oh my goodness!!! I would have totally loved to have met up with you. How cool that would have been.
      Time is flying by so fast because we're slammed but I love being that busy. I miss my bed, my dogs and my hubs though- ready to be home.
