THE HANGOUT MUSIC FESTIVAL

Good morning all!

So if you've stopped by blog in the past week you have probably noticed that I have been MIA. 

I have been in Gulf Shores, Alabama for the HANGOUT MUSIC FESTIVAL! Eek!

Let me just tell you that I have SO much fun. 

Fifteen of my best friends and I split a beach house for the week. It was a three story house with a wrap around two floor balcony with our own private pool. And we filled up the pool the first night with 300 glow sticks and threw in all of the pool furniture....

We all took bikes to ride the 1.5 mi to the festival. It sure beats walking in the heat!

I saw and met some really interesting people. I saw people get arrested. I saw a proposal on the beach during the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs. I also witnessed my neighbor to my beach house overdose and be taken off in an ambulance. This past week has been very intense. 


Some of my favorite shows I saw this weekend were Tom Petty, Umphreys Mcgee, and Stevie Wonder. And let me just tell you Tom Petty still has it!

This was actually my second time seeing Stevie play. The first was back in 2010 at Bonnaroo. Sunday night was actually the his late mom's birthday and during his show he cried on stage in front of 80,000 people on the beach! If you were there and didn't tear up with him then you have no soul.

An awesome light show!
