first concert

We got Ellie tickets to Big Time Rush for her birthday waaaaay back in April.
She was very excited.
And then forgot all about it.

When I reminded her it was coming up, she got all excited all over again.
It was like 2 presents for the price of one!

We got lawn seats.
They were perfect.

 We took Izzy with us.
Can I just pause for a minute and tell you what a cool kid she is.
First of all, she is gorgeous.
Second of all, she is super smart.
Third of all, and most important, she knows what she wants and what she doesn't want.
Fourth of all, she tells her mother everything, and because of this I want her to hang with my kid, a lot, cause I want my kid to tell me everything.

She struggles with girlfriends.
Girls at 15 are so freaking mean.
Izzy has decided the drama just isn't worth it.
And hangs out with boys.
Smart girl.
I think she misses having a close girlfriend though.
Those friendships will come, I keep telling her.
I hope she believes me.

 We waited and waited and waited.
Chris was super excited to be there.
But he was a trooper.
For some reason or another, neither one of us was wearing our wedding rings.
I about had to throw down with this mom that kept flirting with him.
I mean, I can't blame her, but hands off lady!
She seriously kept touching him and talking to him and giving him longing stares.
It was so bad he got uncomfortable.
Izzy and I thought it was a hoot.

 There were a lot of screaming girls there.
 I'm not sure what was happening here.
 Dancing to the music.

It was a great time!

For the record, my first concert was New Kids on the Block.
Please Don't Go Girl.
