Blake Shelton!

On Friday my boyfriend and I went to see Blake Shelton at the Orange County Fair. It was so much fun and if you ever get a chance to see him live then I highly recommend it. He is such a great performer and was so funny.

What I really love about country music artists is that they sound the same in concert as they do on the CDs, unlike most of the pop synthesized crap that's out now. Don't get me wrong though! I love blasting that music but it just isn't the same in concert.

We had to take pictures before heading to the concert, of course!
The sun was very bright!
Yup, I decided to brave wearing boots and shorts. Aren't my knees sexy? :-p
Mom sucks at taking photos and didn't tell us boyfriend's face had stripes...
Before heading to the concert we went to dinner at Sharkey's Woodfired Mexican Grill. A big plate of nachos with organic ingredients sounded much better than fried anything at the fair.
 When we got to the fair we walked around a bit. Neither of us had been there for many years and it was definitely different. Or maybe I'm paying more attention now. There was so much emphasis on food! Like wow! Their new thing this year is fried KoolAid balls...needless to say I didn't try it. But I did get an over priced $10 beer but it was good and kept me warm because genius here didn't bring a jacket...
Then the concert started!! We had seats in the back row but not in the grass. I tried to take the best pictures I could but my camera doesn't zoom well. It's shock/drop proof up to 5 feet(perfect for me) and waterproof but it just doesn't zoom much. 
 A few special guests came out to perform too!! Made my night even better!
Xenia from the Voice came out!!!
DIA FRAMPTON!! Love her!
 He even sang one of his new songs "God Gave Me You" which was amazing!!

We had so much fun and I'd love to see him again! Even my man, who isn't a country fan, enjoyed the show!  He definitely puts on a good show and it's obvious he loves performing!

Anyone else have a good weekend?! Anything exciting?!

Always have to take pictures with your cowgirl boots before a country concert :) hehe. I saw him in concert right after he got married and Miranda Lambert came out on stage with him. It was great.
