Garth Brooks now has a flag hanging in the Vivint Smart Home Arena (formerly known as the EnergySolutions Arena or Delta Center for the oldies) for most tickets sold for his shows October 29-31, 2015.
I am so glad I was holding some tickets to one of those shows.
I can honestly say that was THE best concert I have been to (beating out Keane in 2005 at Abravanel Hall). 
 I remember buying the Double Live CD set for my brother Tim for Christmas in 1998 and loving every song. His show was just like listening to that album and so much more. Garth sang all the oldies so the crowd could sing along. He is a fabulous entertainer.
Trisha Yearwood is on tour with him and came out to sing a couple songs as well.
It wouldn't be a live Garth show without the secret 3rd verse to Friends in Low Places. I know, people who show clips from concerts are kinda silly, but sometimes you've got to be silly.
 Thanks for s great show in Salt Lake City.

This is the third year Day-Z has participated in the Petco Halloween costume contest. We didn't place the last two years, but I could tell this round was gonna be our win.
 My genius costume idea: dog minions. Hershey was an evil purple minion and Dayz was a regular minion. Grab some overalls and pet spray paint...

 and we won that 1st place orange ribbon!!
Happy Halloween.


When was the last time you did something super spontaneous. I flew to San Diego for a weekend to see the Phantom of the Opera. Why wouldn't I?!
While in Southern California, why not get in some...
 beach time, 
 sea lions, 

 good food,
palm trees,
 and dog time as well.
The weather might have been super cloudy the entire time, but that didn't stop me from having heaps of spontaneous fun.


Day-Z pooch is a little picky when it comes to which bowls she will eat/drink from most days.
I tried out these 32 oz. stainless steel bowls from Zitriom. These bowls have a rubber bottom so they won't slip around on the floor while she is eating. You get two bowls for the price of one if you order them on Amazon. We filled one with water and the other with food. They are made of quality materials, wash easily, look nice, and most importantly my dog likes them. They can be used for other pets as well, in case you don't have a dog.
Enjoy your meal.

We were given these bowls free of charge for our honest opinion.

I chose to bike the city. There is plenty of bike parking, but you have to be sure you have a proper lock so your nike is there when you get back.
I tried the 4 digit (super easy to set) cable bike lock. It comes with a free mounting bracket so you can store it on your bicycle easily. The lock dimensions are 4'(1.2m) long x 1/2" (12mm)diameter so it is good for not only bicycles but also skateboards, gates, sports equipment, tool boxes, ladders, and more!
Now let's get out and explore!
