Fantastic Fun at Vampire Weekend

This weekend started a bit early for us. On Thursday night we headed north to St. Augustine to stay the night and attend the Vampire Weekend show.  It was A-MA-ZING!! We had absolutely gorgeous weather and the show was held at the St. Augustine outdoor amphitheater, so it could not have been more perfect!
When we got into town we checked into our hotel and hit up the pool for a quick swim before the show.  Check out the crazy nice waterfront view! We can go back there anytime!! :)

For dinner we hit up our favorite local fish taco stand, Nalu's, to grab a quick bite before the show.  In a word, Yum.
mmm... nalus fish tacos. Yum.
As though front row seats to Vampire Weekend weren't enough, the opening band was Beach House, and Victoria Legrand's voice live is absolutely ridiculous.

Vampire Weekend definitely did not disappoint! They were just spot on with everything from lights to vocals, and the energy of the band and the crowd was so great! It was a great, great night!

The only slight bummer was that, as you can see in the pic above, even though we paid for front row, the pit was on the same level and in front of us, so that felt like a bit of a rip off, but oh well, we still had a fantastic time, and the show itself was unreal!

Isn't this a funny picture of JB (who is normally extremely laidback!) Apparently he was having a good time! We both had a really good time, and a few of our friends were at the show as well, so we all went out afterwards in downtown St. Auggie, which was great fun! 
(However, we definitely felt it the next day, for sure! HA!)

I hope everyone had a great weekend too!  Isn't it amazing sometimes how fast Sunday afternoon arrives!
**Also, yesterday I completed Savvy Crafter project # 2 and plan on turning it into a little DIY for you guys so keep a look out for that early this week!
