Ashley came home on Thursday afternoon and we headed out Friday to go to Tulsa. The concert was Friday night at the BOK Center in downtown Tulsa.
Ashley had researched hotels for us to stay in after the concert. She found the Doubletree Hotel which was just about two blocks from the BOK Center. I thought she picked this for the sake of convenience. I was wrong. She secretly knew that they had these:
It came time to go to the concert so we headed out for the short walk.
We only waited a few minutes before the doors were open and we were in the same house as REBA!! We were giddy with excitement! We found our seats which were great! Floor seats! We could hardly wait for it to start.
Finally the first act came out.
Next was Steel Magnolia. I didn't know anything about this group but Ashley caught me up on them.
Ok...the next act I DID know who they are, or at least a few of their songs anyway.
And then..........we PATIENTLY waited...not really...but we did wait...for the set to be changed over to REBA'S set!
The queen of country music!! Ashley and I were so overcome with emotion!
She was AMAZING!
She sang all of her famous hits...some old and some new.
Of course she ended the show with "Fancy".
We had such a great evening!
We walked back to the hotel and were too keyed up to go to bed so we drank a Dr. Pepper and ate leftover Halloween candy...at midnight!
