A Night With Carrie Underwood

Jerry bought me tickets for my birthday to this concert and I have to say, it was the best present ever! I've never considered myself a huge concert lover. Usually I just went to concerts to hang out with my friends and you'd certainly NEVER catch me shouting and screaming with overjoyment. But I have to admit, this time was different. We got there in the middle of Little Bigtown's performance and they sounded really good but when they were finished and they put up the 5 minute countdown clock for Carrie, I felt my heart starting to beat really fast and really loud. It was really weird. Honestly, I don't know that I've ever been that excited for anything in my entire life. As the clock counted further and further down, my heart pounded faster and faster. I felt like a silly little teenager. When it hit the one minute mark the crowd went insane! The band started to play and when she emerged from the floor in her little superstar stance, yep, I screamed and jumped up and down. She was so amazing! She looked and sounded so beautiful. I know, I'm a huge cheeseball but I've been a fan of hers since the very beginning. The first time I saw her on American Idol, my mom and I looked at each other and said "she's gonna win" and that she did! I just can't even believe how much she's done since then. Oh, and when she asked a sweet little girl from the audience to come up and help her sing All American Girl I thought I was going to die. This girl looked so scared and yet she got up there and sang her heart out. It was awesome! What a dream come true for her. I seriously was holding back the tears. And today, my ears still hurt from the kids sitting behind us. I've never heard a scream so loud in my entire life. And the boys she came with I think were even more excited than her. They just kept repeating "I love you, Carrie! I - LOVE - YOU!" It made me and Jer laugh! Anyway, the least to say, Jer and I had a spectacular night. Thanks, Hunny Buns! I love ya!




Since I'm on the topic of concerts, this is at Jack Johnson in August. We went with our good friends the Jarvis' and my homies Katy and Malia. We all tease Jared that he got a little high breathing in all the weed that people were smokin' around us. He was REALLY enjoying himself if ya know what I mean. ;) I love this guy!
Me, Jer, Chad and Jen Katy, Malia and Me My Jerry jammin' with Jack Gettin' jiggy!
Whooa! I think he's all "jacked up"!
That's one sweet toe touch!
Yep, he's feeling good alright!
This is what Katy and Malia think of Jer's dancing
Jer and Chad doing a jazz square. What's that you say? It's a HSM thing. Finally, time to relax and enjoy!

Oh, I LOVE it!! These make me laugh out loud! I wish we would've gotten a video! But they are still great reminders of that oh-so-fun night. We should do it again sometime....maybe when Carrie's back in town! ;)

Malia said...

I'm laughing out loud, too! That was such a fun night. I don't TEASE Jared that he was high. He TOTALLY was - he was hilarious! My puffy eyes make me think I was, too. I have never smelled that much smoke in my life!
