It seemed to take forever for the concert to start. B knew the concert started at 7 and she fully expected Taylor to show up on stage at 7 sharp. I explained there would be at least one opening band. Of course she hated the group that opened. I can't even remember their name. They seemed very, hmm, different from what I would expect at a TS concert. Oh well. Just when I thought B couldn't take it anymore, the lights went dim, the screen said something along the lines of "are you ready", and even I got giddy. Taylor put on a great show in my opinion. B sang along to everything even if she didn't really know the words. It was such a great mommy-daughter or girl power concert to go to. You saw a few couples but it was mostly moms and daughter, aunts and nieces, sisters, or BFFs. It was such a fun night. I hope this is a big memory of Brooklyn's, her first concert. And if she could remember that her mom was the awesome one that surprised her with tickets, that would be great too!
Sunday, October 30
Ever since Brooklyn has known what a concert was, she has wanted to go to one. I don't even think it mattered who it was. She just wanted to go. I've been telling her for a while that she couldn't go until she was older or until someone kid-friendly came to town. Well, I wasn't fast enough to get tickets to the Biebs (and really didn't want to go to that), but I did snag some tickets to Taylor Swift. B loves her and I was so excited to get to take her. And to make the day even better, another mom-daughter duo that we are friends with were going too. We rode together had a good time chit chatting in the car. We even got there early enough to take pictures and get a Tshirt before the crowd got there. We grabbed a late lunch/early dinner at TGIFridays down the street and enjoyed some downtown scenery before the concert started.
