I don't know who is more excited......

OK. Actually I do know.

I am.

You see, tomorrow my sister and I are taking Miss L on her birthday trip. Let me explain.....

Last summer my sister and I thought that it would be awesome to take Miss L to see Taylor Swift in concert. Because, well, Miss L LOVES Taylor Swift. LOVES. LOVES. LOVES. And because Steven would rather do about anything than go to a Taylor Swift concert, Aunt Sissy said that she would suck it up and go with me. Like I really had to twist her arm....

I looked at her tour schedule and didn't see anything remotely close.

A couple of months ago, I picked up the Taylor Swift flame and started searching for concert dates and times. And what do you know.....she actually had a show in St. Louis. On April 25th. 10 days after L's birthday. I knew that we HAD TO GO!

Did I mention that my girl LOVES Taylor Swift. She sings her songs, watches her videos, has me scrunch her hair so that it looks like "Taylor's". She has Taylor Swift barbies and because of the song, "Best Day", says that Taylor Swift is just like her.
All she knows is that we are going to St. Louis and that we are doing something special. Her guesses have ranged from going to get ice cream....roller skating....bowling......flying kites.
Last night I said, "L, I think I am more excited than you are." To which she replied, "You are....because I don't know where we are going...."

She begged me to tell her and when I said that I wanted to keep it a secret, she said, "FINE! I am not going!

I told her that was fine.....I still was.

Before the words left my mouth she exclaimed, "I'm just kidding! I am going!... But I just wish you would tell me where!"

And folks, let me tell you, I can not wait until I get to........
(Oh yeah, if anybody happens to know somebody who knows somebody....we would love backstage passes......)

Ooooohh, I would be excited for that! Because like most grown ups (umm...or not...), I like that Taylor Swift and her sparkly guitar. :)

As a mom of boys, I am completely clueless when it comes to Taylor Swift. I think I only know one of her songs.

Have a great time! Take a picture of Miss L's face when she figures out what's up.
