The Best Day. Like Ever. Part 2: The Concert

Hi sweet friends!

I have been recapping my trip to Austin/my amazing experience with Taylor Swift, so if you haven't read those two posts, check them out! They will get ya all caught up.

After getting ready to head to the concert, and taking pictures with the cool things outside {like Taylor's trucks}, it was finally time for the concert to start. I was literally shaking with excitement. I had already told both my mom and sister that I would probably cry and that they couldn't laugh too hard. It's a crazy and surreal feeling to see someone in person that you have been a fan of for so long. To be in the same room with them and to breath the same air. Crazy I tell ya!

At this point I was feeling pure excitement. Grinning from ear to ear with tears in my eyes. 

*I just realized that there are going to be spoilers in this post. So, if you are planning on seeing her show and don't want to know details, maybe don't read this post just yet.*

Taylor opens with State of Grace. 
She is standing behind a huge red curtain for the first few lines of the song and then the curtain falls and there she is! {Sidenote: On Sunday Garrett and I are going to see her here in Denver and we will be in the 4th row! Looking at that second picture, and seeing how close we will be...I can't even.}

After State of Grace is Holy Ground.
She had flying drummers and all kinds of dancers and lights going on. In the middle of the song she bangs out a drum solo. It was badass.

Next is Red. 
As you can see, I took some of these pictures from the Frank Erwin Center's Facebook because they were actually able to get good pictures. Lucky people that can bring in nice cameras!

How gorgeous is she?

You Belong with Me was next and was one of my favorite performances of the night because it was quite a bit different from the original song. I won't go into detail, it was just different and neat.

The Lucky One was next and boy was it our lucky song! During this song we found out that we had been chosen for Club Red! I hate to do this again, but if I don't this post would be way too long. So, I'm leaving it at that and will explain what Club Red is and what happened in my next post. But let me tell ya', it's exciting!

During "22" she makes her way through the crowd to a second stage where she performs several songs as well as a "secret song" at each venue. It's just her and her guitar. In Austin she played Safe and Sound which is a song she wrote for The Hunger Games. She dedicated it to the people in Oklahoma who had just suffered a horrible tornado.

This isn't my video, but I wanted to share it.

Super sweaty and gross from dancing around and singing the whole time. Plus my eyeliner was close to nonexistent after the tears I cried when I found out we got Club Red.

Tay flew across the audience while singing Sparks Fly on her way back to the main stage.

Then, one of my all time favorites of her's, I Knew You Were Trouble. Production wise, this song was my favorite. She starts off wearing this white ball gown and during the middle of the song rips it off and has on a black corset top with black shorts. I love the dramatic costume change, and she looks hot in that little black number!

A very blurry sexy black corset:

Several songs later, All Too Well was played. Pretty sure that is my favorite song off of the Red album and the performance of it is perfect. She plays the piano and sings with such emotion in her face and voice, it really is amazing. 

Again, not my video, but if you want to check it out {you won't be sorry!} there ya go! 

A couple more songs and then the finale, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

The finale was awesome! Red confetti everywhere!

At this point I was getting SO nervous! I knew in about 30 minutes I would be meeting Taylor which is something I have daydreamed about so many times. No, I am not a 12 year old girl, I promise. 

 And because I have alot to say about Club Red as well as quite a bit of pictures from it, I'm going to leave you hanging one more time. I keep doing that don't I?
