A prelude to the concert

To say that I was super excited was an understatement. I've been dreaming about this day eversince we bought the tickets. I'm talking about the Divas4Divas concert in Dallas, Texas last night. It was my first time in Texas and going straight to a big city like Dallas was overwhelming. Two important things that I noticed while I was there, it was hot and traffic was heavy. The heat didn’t bother me as much as the bumper to bumper traffic at 70 mph. If you don’t drive aggressively, you’re pretty much stuck with whatever lane you’re in. Luckily, I was not the one on the driver’s seat. Otherwise, we couldn’t have made it to the hotel in one piece. It was 3:00 P.M. when we got to Hyatt Place, the hotel where we stayed at. We relaxed a little bit and freshen up before we head out for the concert which started at 8:00 P.M. The room was very nice with huge flat panel TV, plush king-sized bed, cozy corner sofa-sleeper, granite kitchen sinks, wet bar and complimentary Wi-Fi internet access. The sole purpose of the trip was to watch the concert, so we didn't really intend to stay long and didn't get to do other stuff. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the experience minus the traffic, of course, hehe! Here are some photos of the hotel and our room. The official photos of the concert itself will be posted on my next post, I promise!

LOL Welcome to Texas!

You think thats bad, try getting on I-20 East bound at 5:30 you will be sitting on 20 with your blinker on for miles before people finally let you over, in that bumper to bumper traffic.

lol its happened to us its pretty bad in the city. But where I live out in the stickes, you can get on Interstate 20 or 30 very easily!

The worst part is when there's an accident EVERYONE SLOWS DOWN to stare and backing everying up for 10 miles. I have seen that happen too!
