NEAL DIAMOND!!!!


So my mother and I had the opportunity on Tuesday evening to go on a Mother Daughter date and it was a TOTAL BLAST!!!
My mom seems to be a professional at winning things on the radio. For as long as I can remember the woman has been winning all sorts of things. This last week she won tickets to a Neal Diamond concert. YES LADIES NEAL DIAMOND!!!! I know, I could not believe my ears, the man is still in concert! And let me tell ya, he puts on a pretty good show. His voice is absolutely AMAZING live which not everyone can pull off, and he is a great performer! You can just tell the guy has a heart of gold!
So my mom and I got to sit 3rd row from the stage, we were SO CLOSE it was totally crazy. We were up in the front with all the Hard Core fans, mostly old folks, but let me tell ya, they all got into it big time!!! I can not tell you the last time I saw so many old people up from their chairs dancing like crazy! I think half the time I was cracking up from the performance I was watching in the audience. Although I will have to admit I was up and dancing as well and singing along.
My mom and I had a great time together and I totally wish we would have gotten at least one picture together. We both brought our camera's but we were on the end of a row and were told we could not have camera's inside. At one point I tried to take a picture on my cell phone of him since he was so stinking close just for proof and the stupid anal security guard yelled at me before I could get my shot. So we never pulled out our camera's from then on. SAD!!!
But we had a blast, I am so grateful my mommy asked me on that date. Having a sister, and having her and I be so close to our mommy and each other, there are not many times it ends up being just my mom and I hanging out. I was grateful for the opportunity to play with her and just spend that quality time! Thanks mom for the fun date!
