Sun, Beach, Pools, Golf, and GARY ALLAN!

So, my title pretty much sums it up.  I was on vacation last week in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  I have a very bad habit of not taking too many pictures.  I think I was having too much fun.

This was my family's vacation, so I got some pictures off my dad and my sister.

Here is the place we stayed at:

North Beach Towers
The pools were AMAZING.  There's more than what the picture below shows.  That picture is from our balcony.  There was a bar under the big roof in the pool and those are tables and benches in the water around it!

Here's a shot of my parents, myself, and my bf at dinner:

I went golfing for the first time while on vacation.  There were plenty of blunders and my dad kicked my ball into better position a couple times (I protested and he said that its my first time and have fun).

There is one thing that I was most excited for.  You see, each year when we go to Myrtle Beach, I search and see who's playing at the House of Blues while we are there and there's never anybody I like.  This year, I searched, and who's name came up? GARY ALLAN.  Now I say this with so much enthusiasm because he is my absolute favorite country singer.  His voice is just so soulful and his songs are amazing.  (I would post the video I took, but it was too big)  The House of Blues was an amazing venue.  It was amazingly small and intimate.  These pictures were all taken with my phone, so the quality isn't that good.

Seriously, look this guy up! 

Some of my favorites at the concert were:
Right Where I Need to Be
Watching Airplanes
No Regrets
Best I Ever Had

and most of all:
Live Ain't Always Beautiful

It was hard for me to narrow it down that far.

So that's where I was all week.  How was your week?  Do you like country?  Have you heard of Gary Allan?

    Be still my heart the girl loves yarn and Gary Allan.

    Life Ain't Always Beautiful & No Judgement Day are my favorite Gary Allan songs. No Regrets and Like It's A Bad Thing are close seconds.
