A Birthday Surprise.

Today is my sweet friend Stevie's 22nd birthday! Stevie and I have a lot of things in common. We both love to shop, love racing, love to cook, scrapbook, laugh, take pictures, go to concerts..you name it. When we first heard that Lady Antebellum was coming to Seattle, we both said that we were definitely going to see them. I think the concert snuck up on us because on Sunday we didn't have tickets and didn't have plans to get them. Until my brain started to think...hmmm, it is her birthday on Tuesday and how cool would that be to surprise her with tickets? I texted her to make sure she was available Monday night and when she said that she was, I told her I would pick her up at 4:30 and all I would tell her was that we were going downtown Seattle...I got online and was still able to find some AWESOME tickets.

I picked her up last night and couldn't wait until 7:30 to tell her so I gave her a card that told her we were going to Lady A. She was sooooo excited, to say the least :) We went to one of our favorite restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory first and then headed over to the Wamu Theatre.

We had such a great time! We were so close to the stage and sang pretty much every song. I would definitely see them again, especially in a venue like the Wamu Theatre. That is my idea of the perfect concert setting. Very intimate feeling. And there is just something about going to a concert that is magical to me. I can hear the same songs on the radio and like them, but when I am seeing and hearing them performed with my own eyes, I love the songs that much more.

We ♥ Lady A.
