Yesterday, hubby and I took his little sister to the Taylor Swift concert at Gillette. Being the fabulous brother and sister-in-law we are, we had given her the tickets as a Christmas present. She loves Taylor Swift. Conveniently, I love Taylor Swift as well. I am happy to report, that in the entire concert, there was only one song I didn't know the words to.
It was really a fully rounded day of concert going. I had gone to the mall and gotten a new outfit in hopes to fit in with the teenage crowd. I'm not sure it worked. It was so hot, I feel like my skirt got bigger....or it was too big to start with..or I just have an awkwardly sized body. The world will never know.
We loaded up the car early. Got lil sis and headed down to Foxboro. Did hubby think that he may possibly run into Tom Brady? Yes. Did he have a special conversation in his head all prepared for if this did happen? Yes. (On behalf of the people of Massachusetts I would like to thank you for all you have given to us and the organization. Also, I would like to ask; how are you wife and children?).
The little propane grill was broken out, and burgers and dogs were cooked. Honestly, this may have made the oppressive heat even worse. Two cars down from us a little girl had decided that it was too hot to wear her shirt. While this may have been true....I wish men and little children wouldn't feel the need to flaunt in front of me that they can go topless whenever they want....when I can't (without being a stripper/super inappropriate). It's selfish, I know....but that's just the way it is.
Around 5 we headed into the stadium. The first act, Gloriana, started at 6. Then Kellie Pickler, Justin Bieber, and Taylor. I can't tell you how many Mrs. Bieber shirts I saw. I kinda felt like I was at a New Kids on the Block Concert back in the day. The girl two seats down from me nearly broke a capillary screaming over the 15 year old Canadian god. It was intense. I know all the words to some of the Beib's songs. So did I sign along and scream as loud as I could to try to embarass lil sis? ABSOLUTELY!
Tay Tay came on just after dark. I think she may have been a little overwhelmed by Gillette Stadium. Cause she kept staring at us just looking, and then turned around and did her thing. It was awkward at times....but all in all, it was a good concert...really good.
My favorite part of the concert, other than trying to convince my sister in law that eating flattened Mike and Ike's will help to reduce stomach bloat (really...I don't know what's wrong with me. I blame it on my IT job and my lack of creative outlet), was hubby singing along in my ear. Somehow, he got wasted without my internal "hubbys drinking too much" red flag going up. He usually has a lovely voice...but last night, he just had a really loud, off pitch, drunk voice.
It was, as Taylor would say, the "best day".
One day later...unfortunately, we're a day closer to work, and I can't ignore that my apartment needs to be cleaned anymore.. Well.....after I go to the mall for a few of course.
