On Thursday night, Jessica and Jon came to town and surprised me with tickets to the Taylor Swift concert.  Why they spoil me so much, I will never know, but Jessica, don't you dare buy me a Christmas or Birthday present for the next 20 years.  

I nearly fainted when we were escorted to our seats.  Jessica snagged us floor seats in the 16th row!!! These were the best seats I have ever had at a concert (yes, even better than "Spiceworld" box seats in '98).  

After a great performance by Needtobreathe,

 and a slew of anticipatory messages for the crowd,

Taylor made her entrance!

 I was delighted to see that Swifty was a fabulous performer, something I was a bit skeptical about from the low key performances I was used to seeing on TV.  She interacted with the crowd, was upbeat and on key, and changed costumes 9 times without even breaking a sweat.

I was singing at the top of my teeny-bopping lungs and kicking up my cowgirl boots in the aisle.  Jess and I were completely in our element, despite the fact we were surrounded by glitter-crazed preteens. 

 Towards the middle of the concert, Taylor made her way through the crowd and hugged concert-goers, including her parents and Bruce Springsteen! 

For the finale, Taylor played her newest single, on the same set she had for the CMA's.  She then glided above the crowd on a suspended balcony.  I am still finding sparkly confetti in my purse.

In a perfectly timed twist of fate, a police car escorting 2 Yukons pulled out directly in front of my car as we were leaving the concert.  We were lucky enough to catch an up-close glimpse of Taylor as she rolled down the window and gave a last farewell wave to fans! I reached for my camera, but sadly, only captured the taillights of her caravan.  Still, it was one of those star stuck moments I won't soon forget.

Thank you to Jessica and Jon for making an average Thursday night a "Fairy Tale" come true!!!! 

.....Must Have.....

A girl can never have too many scarves.  They are winter's one-size-fits-all soft statement necklace.  For an effortless accent sure to keep you cozy in the coming months, invest in a loop or infinity scarf.  Unlike your everyday pashmina, the loop scarf is exactly that, a loop!  With all the buckles and buttons that fasten our winter coats and boots, it's nice to have something simple and snuggly to throw on as you're headed out the door.  Here are a few of my favorites.
