This past week I had the opportunity to see my friend, Trey, from high school whom I hadn't seen in almost 6 years! Jamie, Kellie and myself were all close with Trey in high school. We confided in him and he always knew how to cheer us up and brighten up our days. In high school he was this little charismatic, humorous and genuine guy. He was always a shorty and had the most adorable dimples! Well, this past Tuesday night Jamie and I went to Saltgrass and met up with Trey for the first time in a long time. Much to our surprise when he stood up to greet us we found ourselves looking up! He had shot up to 6 feet and lost all of his high school tubby-ness, he still had those dimples though!
Dinner with Trey and Jamie was really great. We got to catch up on our lives and stories and it felt as if we hadn't missed a beat since high school. Trey has been through a lot these past few years and has been active in the Navy, his stories were awesome.
This past Friday Trey sent us a message saying that he had access to tickets to the SOLD OUT Miranda Lambert concert at Billy Bobs! I had been wanting to go to this concert for so long, so we told him we were in. We all met up at Jamie's house and then headed to Johnny Carino's for some delicious dinner.
After we finished eating we piled in the car and made our way to Billy Bob's. Jamie and I have been several times over the past few years but Trey hadn't been since he was 17! So this was bound to be a wonderful night. The whole place was packed, people everywhere! Trey pulled out our tickets and much to our surprise they were reserved tickets in section C! This was three rows from the main stage and in the center of the place. The seats were phenomenal, we ended up sitting next to one of Miranda Lambert's teachers from when she was in school.
I couldn't get over how absolutely incredible she was in concert. She bounced around that stage- in heels nonetheless - and her vocals were flawless.
We all sat / stood in awe watching her perform. At the end during her encore she grabbed the mic and said, "I just love me some Blake Shelton!" To which the crowd cheered (she is dating this country star) and two seconds later as she hollered, "Hey Blake!" He walks onto the stage and the crowd goes wild. He proceeded to sing one of his songs and then they did a duet. It was adorable watching them on stage together, you could really see the love shared between the two of them.
The concert was amazing and the company, even better. We had such a great time getting to catch up and see our long lost friend and were so thankful for the incredible tickets he gave us.
He's now on his way back home to check in and head out to sea for the next few months. We're hoping that he makes his way back to Texas in August so we can repay him for everything by throwing him a Birthday Bash.
It's amazing how you can go years without seeing a person and then once you're together it's as if you haven't missed a single day. True friendship lasts the hands of time and I am so thankful to have been a witness to that!
