Concert Series: Taylor Swift


For a Christmas present I made the girls a picture album of our trip to see Taylor Swift last spring and I thought I would share a few pics and a little of our story. After hours of working on pictures I was relieved the photo albums came out so well and that the girls were thrilled with them. I mixed my pictures along with pictures I came across online. Some of mine were a bit fuzzy since they were taken with my old camera but mixed in with ones that looked like I had taken them only better it worked out perfectly. The ones here in the post are some of mine. I have so many more but it's hard to choose. I used Snapfish to do the photo books. I am always pleased with their product.  You can store pictures, make albums, get prints, photo trinkets and anything you need. I highly recommend it. They are fast, reasonable and have some great sales.  

Anyway to get to the story, the morning tickets went on sale for Taylor Swift I got an email from one of my favorite venues that said I could get tickets before the general public if I used a code at a certain time. I tried to restrain myself but come 9:00 that morning I was online and ready to purchase.  As it turned out this impulse buy ending up being one of the best ever.  I got 4 tickets with no thought as to who was going to go but I knew me and Ashley were so there. We planned the 2 hour trip and reservations were made to spend the night. Now who else was going to go with us? Of course, I had to ask my hubby first but he quickly said he'd pass so in stepped my mom. I was not going on an overnight trip with 3 kids by myself so another adult was a must. As it turned out Ashley's older sister did not want to go (she's too cool :) so her bff snatched up the other ticket. Unfortunately the day of the show I woke up with a toothache and swollen jaw. OMG, I was afraid I was going to have to miss the show! My hubby went and got me some tooth medication and my mom went on a search for pain pills. Luckily I was able to attend and other than Ashley forgetting her bag that had her sandals and day after outfit in it the rest of the trip went off without a hitch.  A great time was had by all! I wish I had been able to get a video of those girls singing Taylor's songs on the way there. Glad mom found those pain pills. ♥


Ashley traded in her sequined hat for a feathered cowboy hat. The sold-out crowd consisted mainly of females of all ages. There were lots of cowboy hats and boots in attendance that's for sure! Lots of excitement in the air.


Taylor was absolutely amazing. It was definitely over-the-top. A huge production show. Very magical and fairytale like, complete with  a dozen wardrobe and set changes, a revolving colored tree, acrobats, confetti and a close-up look at Taylor as she floated around the arena in her own balcony! There was even snow in June!





When Taylor headed down to our end of the arena I let the girls go down and take some pictures and see her up close.













As you can see by those faces the girls couldn't have had a better time. Even got to McDonald's the next morning right at 10:30 so they got to have chicken nuggets and hash browns together. I wanted to stop at Waffle House and so they thought it was very funny that they ended up getting exactly what they wanted because I told them breakfast would be over. Two lucky little ladies! ♥


Check out Taylor's official website here!

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season

UGG.com
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Dreaming of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ok, so last night I had a dream that I was standing on the roof watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers play "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" and I was featured in the video. I was looking great in a cute outfit with some type of hat and having a ball! lol The next thing I know I'm running through the jungle looking worse for wear with a dinosaur chasing me.  We watched an episode of Terra Nova and then Jurassic Park III was on so I know why I was dreaming of dinosaurs but where did the Red Hot Chili Peppers come from? I was so excited I woke up and had to pee!

How cool can you get?
I love a man that cooks! Although Flea scares me a bit!
Now this is a fashion statement if I ever saw one.

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
