Baby's black balloon makes her fly

Sometimes I win things....

I was very excited about my winnings this time. Ok let me tell you aaaallll about it...

So I won tickets to go see Parachute, Michelle Branch, and the Goo Goo Dolls last Thursday. WHAT?! Yes. Well it gets even better...I also got meet and greet passes to see Michelle. I was pretty much freaking out, considering I grew up loving both of these people.

So I took my wonderful friend Cassey with me. It was up in Park City so we headed up there. Apparently I am horrible at knowing the streets up there because we ended up having to walk like 50 blocks UPHILL to finally get to where we were going. Next time I definitely will know that I can park closer. But we finally made it to Cafe Terigo and had to wait a few minutes before going in. As we were sitting there Michelle came in right in front of us. I was trying so hard to think of something clever, funny, interesting to say, but all I could do was sit there looking like a retard while having a freakout attack. haha

Ok so the time came and it was amazing. She played us like 4 songs and answered some questions. She is so pretty and nice. Turns out she is married to someone in her band (not the guy you will see in the pic) and they have a 6 yr old daughter! How precious is that? I think very. We saw her later at the real concert and Michelle played this adorable song she wrote for her daughter. So cute. So after she was done playing we got to go meet her and take a pic with her. Again...wanting to say something great but all I came up with was a hello and a we love you. I am super cool. But hey, it beats "Pretty lady" any day.

Next came the big concert. We headed down to the amphitheater. Soooo many people were already there so we didn't get amazing seats or anything. Plus they were just on the grass. Being the genius I am, we didn't bring any blankets or anything. Stupid idiot. But we got ourselves a Goo Goo Dolls shirt and found some seats.

A lot of strange things were goin down up there. So many baskets full of cheese, wine, bread. We were so confused. Especially at the fact of how many people brought their own legit wine glasses plus wine glass holders! Ha it was so crazy.

Sidenote: Elizabeth Smart may or may not have walked right by us. And I may or may not have taken a stalker pic of her after she walked by....
Yes, yes I did
Parachute opened. Um I love them. I only have a few of their songs but they are so good live. These girls next to us were obsessed with them and had made these awesome homemade Parachute shirts. They ended up sharing their blanket with us which made us love them even more.

Michelle was next and she rocked it again....lastly came the Goo Goo Dolls. They were amazing. So freakin good. It was such a great concert. The one downside was how freezing cold it got. Wearing shorts and short sleeves is not good at night in Park City. We were using our shirts as blankets...that didn't turn out so good ha. But we worked it out and it was pretty much an awesome day.

Thanks MY 99.5

like ships in the night

The exact words that came out of my mouth during a call at work today:

"So your ex daughter in-law is having her friend Boots come over and steal your mail?"

The stories I hear...

Artist of the week still goes to Mat Kearney

Young love

So my job is very entertaining. I get to talk to some pretty crazy people. 

Here is one of my favorites so far:

This clearly sounding black women calls up wanting to report some mail theft. But somehow she got off on this huge tangent and I got way too much info than I needed slash wanted to hear. Please read in a black women's accent. Here are some of her best lines during the convo:

"I'm Mrs. Washington's baby. Do you know who Mrs. Washington is?" Me-"Yes ma'am, I do"
(Hmmm...I didn't know Mrs. Washington had a secret black baby...or did she?)

"I'm gonna call the white house after I'm done talkin to you. My boyfren works at the white house" 

"My husbans been sleepin with my neighbor. He been sleepin with white women. I don't ker. I sleep with white men, black men, mexicans, I aint racist."

"I been gettin rapped in my house. The police come in a shoot at me. Why they gotta shoot at me? I didn't do nothin. I don't want to be shot at."

Ya...all those words came out of the same lady during the same conversation. I later talked to a lady who told me she had to get her gun out and that she has to carry a gun around now because of her ex-husband.  Haha. Crazies. 

Today was my day off for the week. Not looking forward to Saturday morning, 7 am. Death.

Speaking of music...Mat Kearney's new CD came out today. I was very excited because I found this bumpin coupon for the deluxe edition for only $5.99 at Best Buy. iTunes doesn't have the deluxe version, and it costs $7.99. Duh I'm goin with the cheaper price for more songs. So I drove up to Best Buy, all happy and excited to buy this awesome CD. Well turns out they had already sold out! What?! I was very mad. And I wasted my life driving up there for nothing. Stupid idiot. So I gave in and bought the regular version on iTunes. It was worth it. I'm in love with it already. Go check it out.
