Sometimes I have trouble spoiling myself.
This wasn’t one of those times.
When we heard Fleetwood Mac was coming to town, we decided we had to go. We love their music. They’re one of our couple bands. That music that you bond over. (The other was Flight of the Conchords, believe it or not. Not quite as romantic. But incredibly funny.)
Even though we didn’t know each other back in the day, he had been contemplating going to one of their concerts about a decade ago. He didn’t. He regretted it.
So even though it wasn’t in the budget, we decided to splurge. It was an easy decision. I had decided I wanted more music in our life. He had no problem with the resolution. It’s why we went to see Yo Gabba Gabba earlier this year (more on that in another post.) It’s why I was totally cool with his Rocksmith video game purchase. (I don’t see the value in video games on a normal day.)
Tickets weren’t cheap. But it was so worth it. We had an amazing time. Their music brings up so many memories for us, and seeing it live was incredible. I hope we’re still rocking when we’re the same age as Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham. Except, you know, more together than things ended up for them.
Have you splurged recently with no regrets?
