Glorious Time Away

I'm back from my little getaway and what an amazing time it was! I went up to Hershey, PA for a music festival called Mixtape which was held at Hershey stadium. I had never visited Hershey and what a swell place it is! 

 The weather was a little rainy on Friday but it didn't stop us from having the most fun time!
The band line up was pretty incredible and included LL Cool J, The Fray, The Wanted, NKOTB, Backstreet Boys, Kelly Clarkson, Carly Rae Jepsen, and several others. I'm usually not one who enjoys large music festivals. Concerts yes, 2 full days of it, outside, no. But I enjoyed it immensely!


Here I am in the middle with my friend Angela on the left and my friend Anne-Marie on the right.




I really, really liked The Wanted. They were really upbeat and Saturday night they joined NKOTB on stage to sing their hit "So Glad You Came. Fun!


NKOTBSB put on the best concert I've ever seen them do together. The energy was so high!



 On Sunday morning we went to watch a softball game: NKOTB versus Backstreet. It was SO fun! One of the highlights of the weekend for sure. NKOTB won making it an even sweeter experience.

This is a picture of me with Anne-Marie to my left and Sue to the right. The two other girls on the end of the left are two sweet girls we befriended from Oklahoma. They were so, so fun to hang out with.
Part of the fun for me when I take these trips is meeting new friends and of course spending time with old ones.




Here I am with my friend Crystal to the left. She came from Seattle for the festival. Alicia, on the right, flew in from California. It was so good to see these ladies!


This is probably my favorite photo that I took this weekend. Great memories made! 

Now on to sewing! ;)
