We got a night out / Carrie Underwood Concert

My husband and I got a night out. We went to see Carrie Underwood. Unfortunately, we had to drive two hours to get there. But I guess it gave us four hours alone to talk uninterrupted by kids. The venue was outside at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort.

I love going to Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. We played slots while waiting to see Carrie, because we got there at 5:00pm and were told she wasn't coming out until 8:00pm. They had a DJ on at 6:30, but the seats were so cramped and small, that I didn't want to sit there anymore waiting.

The slots were fun, and easy. It's been years since I had gambled there. I was able to just slide my money in, and then when I was ready to cash out my winnings, it gave me a receipt. I didn't have to stand in line for a teller.  I just put my receipt into a machine, and it spit my money out like an ATM.

Let's get on to the show! I was so excited to see Carrie Underwood, and she totally delivered. Her vocals were very on point and true. She flawlessly delivered a great performance. She shared with us how the first time she ever got on a plane was when she was 21 trying out for American Idol, and never dreamed she'd get to perform in all the places she is now.

She looked great. She had white shorts and brown cowboy boots, and wore sunglasses until the sun went down. There were pictures behind her that would change for each song. There weren't any outfit changes, which I was hoping she might change at least once. But I figured since it was a smallish crowd, maybe it wasn't going to be that involved. I just like seeing the different outfits people wear, and like to see performers mix it up a bit.

Very happy we went and it was a great night out. I was able to forget about all the every day worries with Andy and Gabby, and get better reconnected with my husband.
