You know it’s been a good weekend when it’s monday and you’re blissfully sitting in Starbucks at 11am unsure of how to describe your weekend within a reasonable blog length because it was just that amazing. I think it’s safe to say it was the best weekend of the summer. Let me just show you a little sneak peek collage:
In case you are wondering…Yep, I ate massive amounts of cheese at the melting pot, and overindulged at high tea, and watched Jeff on stage at an improv comedy show and drank way too many bottomless mimosas at brunch and oh yeah…sort of had AMAZING seats at the Taylor Swift concert…but it’s no big deal. I mean, if you’ve ever read this blog before in your entire life, even just once, you’ve probably just sort of assumed that I’m cray cray for Tay Tay. You might be in for a real shocker because I don’t think I’ve ever felt true love until now (Sorry Jeff!) because after this weekend my love for Taylor has grown exponentially which basically means all the haterz out there are in for a real treat. My motto when it comes to Taylor is a little bit on the defensive side…it goes something like this “Talk Sh!t get hit…” I think you can fill in the blank. I won’t because I like to remain a little classy like my best friend, Taylor.
Okay okay…but I’m getting ahead of myself, let’s start from the beginning. Back in May my aunt surprised me with tickets to the Taylor Swift concert, it was ABSOLUTE proof that dreams DO come true. From May until…well right until the concert started I was DAY DREAMING about the moment. I was planning what to wear, how to do my hair, what to say when Taylor invited me on stage and forced me to accept a golden unicorn BFF necklace in front of the whole crowd…you know, the whole shebang. In the end I really was inspired by the music video for “22” and decided on black and Cat ears:
So we were all set to have the best night ever. We started the morning at The Coterie room (my favorite little brunch spot in Seattle), then afternoon shopping and getting our hair done at Swink Style bar (to be honest they weren’t the best but they certainly did a better job than I would have), and then stuffed our faces at The Melting Pot before the concert.
By the time we reached the Tacoma Dome I was pretty much hyperventilating because I was so excited. Our seats were superb, like, by far the best seats I’ve ever had in my life. We were in the 10th row, but because of the “T” shape the stage was set up in, we were 3 rows back from the center of the “T” so it really felt like we were in the 3rd row the majority of the time. I pretty much thought I had died and gone to heaven. The entire time I pretty much just wished I could freeze that moment in time and live in it forever (in the words of Peeta Mellark).
Her voice was amazing, the sets were amazing, her costumes were perfect, the backup singers and dancers were amazingly talented, the band was lively and energetic, it was the best performance I’ve ever seen, even better than Kiss and that really says something because there was a ton of fire involved in that show. I loved the way she incorporated some of her older songs (“You’re not sorry”, “You Belong with me”, “Love Story”, “Sparks Fly”, “Mean”) in with her new album. And the way she just connected with the entire audience…woah. She’s a REALLY talented performer, and I think even the Taylor Haters out there should acknowledge that (Kanye, I’m looking at you).
Taylor, I was enchanted to see you.
I have so much more to say about the weekend (Hello! Brunch at the Space needle, High Tea, Jeff reenacting a break up with his ex girlfriend on stage!) but I can’t cover it all today. It’s just too much and I’m overstimulated enough as it is (that’s what caffeine on an empty stomach does to you). The point is I was absolutely spoiled rotten and I am SO SO GRATEFUL. I know I am going to remember this weekend for the rest of my life.
