John Mayer = Awesome (Can't believe I'm saying that)

Here are the videos Jordan and I took at the John Mayer concert. This is one of the best concerts I've ever been to. The poor quality vids are mine and the good quality vids are obviously Jordan's. Plus, you can hear him singing in most of them :) I refrained for your sake. However, the shakiness I will not apologize for. I can't stand still at a concert. I've gotta dance :)

I can't remember during which song, but John left the stage in the middle of it and his band just jammed for a minute without him. He came back and said that if you thought he had to leave to go pee, you were correct. Haha. Anyway, I was surprised at how gracious he was. He had nothing but good things to say about the audience and Utah in general. I've heard some negative things about him so I was a little worried how he'd act, but I can honestly say he was the 2nd most nicest performer I've seen next to Boyz II Men. I appreciate that.

*Disclaimer: These videos are taking FOREVER to upload. It may be a long time before I post anything else (if ever). I've been contemplating ending my blogging career so don't be surprised if I disappear sometime soon. Why not go out on top with the most epic post in the history of my posting? In the wise words of Morrie Schwartz (Tuesdays With Morrie): "Don't let go too soon, but don't hang on too long." One love.

My New Digs

Here it is. My new place. I love it. It's so nice and actually feels like a home. I live with one roommate mostly, but the owner is in town for a month before he moves to Spain for a year. The townhouse has 4 bedrooms. Three on the second floor and one in the basement. We have an amazing view. I've been so busy that I haven't been able to enjoy my balcony very much, but I promise you I will now that I have no more friends coming to visit.

One cool thing about this subdivision is when you turn into it, you're greeted by a little waterfall. I didn't get a picture of it, but just know that I think that's pretty cool. Haha. Feel free to be jealous and to visit!

So there you have it. And to top it all off, I know the guys that live next door. They randomly moved in when I did so that is pretty sweet. Also, for those of you who know Dave, he had a group of girls I know move in next to him and he lives on the street below me. So this place is about to start hopping. (Hopefully!)

Three Years In A Row, Baby!

I just got back from the Boyz II Men concert! I've seen them three years in a row now. I can't believe how great they still sound. It's incredible how talented they are. I love to sing, but am no where near that good. It blows my mind hearing the control they have. I'm very jealous of that.


I recorded some video on my phone that I'll post later if it's good. I haven't checked it out yet. I want to wait until I can get the videos and pictures that Michelle took, because she got right up to the front of the stage. She even got a rose from them during I'll Make Love To You.

I also called my mama when they sang A Song For Mama. That's her ring tone. I'm not sure if she could hear, but she stayed on the phone for a while so hopefully she could at least hear me singing to her.

They said they'll be coming back again next year. Not sure if I'll be here, but if so, I will definitely go again. I've paid about $25 total to see them three times. The most expensive time was $10. Not bad, eh? I even paid for my brother and sister-in-law to come tonight so even with them, I have paid around $40 for the three times. Best. Deal. Ever!

Get Excited!

I have a lot of updates coming. I was going to do some blogging today, but this post is all I can manage. I'm treating myself to a lazy, do nothing day since my plans for tonight fell through. Here's a sneak peak at what's coming:

  • My new house
  • John Mayer concert
  • Pitt/Utah football game
  • WSU/BYU soccer match
  • UW/BYU football game
That has all taken place in the last 8 days. It's been a crazy week, but so much fun. I only had one night of downtime and that was Wednesday. So glad tomorrow is a holiday. Hooray for laborers!!!
