The day has come and gone, ladies and gentlemen. It’s a sad moment in a girl’s life when she realizes a day she’s been looking forward to since December is over. If it were up to my husband, we would just drive down to LA to see her again. That’s how much he enjoyed the concert. He has declared Taylor Swift a “Rockstar” after seeing the show, and I’ve gotta be honest: I don’t disagree.
The day before the concert, while I waited patiently for Taylor to knock on my front door (seeing as how she clearly must have read my letter and we were now going to be BFFs), I thought to myself: We need to “T-Swiftify” this house. So I did what any other thirty-one year old woman does. I got out my markers and construction paper, and started coloring.
In our stairwell, we normally have photos of our life arranged neatly. Who needs photos of your life when you’re going to see your new BFF in concert? Not us! So I went to work covering up each photo with pieces of cardstock that I embellished with her song lyrics. I did more of the common lyrics, since B wasn’t yet a “true Swifty” and only knew the popular songs.
Since the concert, I can honestly call my husband a Swifty. He wants to buy his own copy of her new album. For real. Because apparently my copy isn’t good enough.
I wasn’t close enough to get amazing photos (next time she tours I will camp outside for a year if that’s what it takes), so I’ll just share these few with you guys. Besides, I don’t want to ruin the show for you if you haven’t seen it yet. In which case, you MUST go. It’s unbelievable.
If you’re a fan, you’ve heard that Taylor (yes, we are on a first name basis now) has brought special guests to each venue. For our show (Santa Clara, California) Little Mix performed their new single, “Black Magic.” Then, Julia Roberts and Joan Baez walked the catwalk with Taylor for a song. At least half the Swifties in attendance didn’t know who either of these legends were, but we were pretty excited.
Overall, it was everything I hoped for, and more. She was amazing, her performances as well as a few advice talks she gave. Not to mention, the synchronized light-up bracelets that illuminated the entire stadium?! I felt like it was worth every penny we spent, and wished I had gone both nights she was here.
