Happy Birthday To Me!

I can't believe I'm going to be 27 tomorrow. I feel old. Because Chad and I aren't patient people, we tend to celebrate our birthdays a day early. So today, we went to lunch, went to get the van washed and Chad picked up a birthday card for me. (I usually buy birthday cards for everyone at this particular car wash, they have a great selection!!) Shortly after we got home, Chad gave me my card and inside were two tickets for...



Sweet! If you know me, you know this story... but I'm going to tell you anyway. I've been a HUGE fan of Maroon 5 since 2001, I got to see them when no one knew who they were, they opened up for O.A.R. at a little dive place in Tempe called Nita's Hideaway (Remember Tiff and TJ??). The next time I saw them, I actually went to see them by myself and Josh Broussard and Gavin DeGraw opened up for them. I stood right up in front of the stage, 5' away from everyone. It was awesome. Since then, I've seen them about three times. It frustrates me that they've got so many fans now, the seats are way more expensive and a whole lot farther away than what they used to be!!

Chad had told me about a month ago that he had wanted to get us (me) tickets but they were sold out. (I double checked just to make sure...) I was super bummed because this was the first time that they were going to be in town and I was going to miss the show. However, I did find out that they were going to be in Irvine, CA so I told Chad that we could drive to CA to visit his family and we could have a date night. ;o) Luckily, we won't have to drive that far... only over to the west side.

Chad found tickets to the Phoenix show on eBay and they're actually really good seats! YAY!! WOO HOO!!



Thanks Babe, I love you!! You're awesome!!

Here's a cute picture that I took at lunch (they were looking through that at each other... Brynn thought her Daddy looked funny)!!
