JOHN MAYER

I saw John Mayer last night for the second time. The first time I saw him was in Birmingham in 2010 and it was great but this show was absolutely amazing. I cried twice. You might have read my obsessive post about him last year, so to say I love him would be putting it lightly. The set list was the most perfect setlist there ever was. He played perfect amounts of songs from Paradise Valley, his new album, a few from Born & Raised and of course popular songs such as Your Body is a Wonderland, Slow Dancing in a Burning Room, Vultures, Neon, Gravity, Why Georgia etc, just to name a few! He played for two hours. I was seriously probably the happiest person there last night. He played at Lakewood Amphitheater in Atlanta and it was so great. Our seats weren’t super amazing or anything but it was still the best concert I have ever been to, and I’ve been to a lot of great concerts.

I want to relive the night over and over. ALSO, Phillip Phillips is so great. I was already in love with him before the concert and he just blew it out of the water. He has such a great stage presence and is really great at what he does. Love him.  I also appreciated this concert a lot more because I became a bigger JM fan after I saw him a few years ago. The set was awesome, and constantly changing. His “traveling band” is great and he is such a great musician I can’t even explain. This may not be cool to some people, but he played the guitar upside down, around his back! It was amazing. I love him even more now. People say he is a douche, but I think he is just real, which is something that Hollywood needs. He always has his inspirational lead ins to songs and that might be part of my favorite part about his concerts.

I think I might drop out of school and become a JM groupie.

Sweater Weather

Disclaimer: There is actually no such thing as ‘sweater weather’ in Alabama at the end of September but a girl can only hope.

So, it has been a WHILE since I’ve updated my blog. I’ve been crazy been this summer with work, moving, my dad’s wedding, working out, and having a social life. I feel bad I’ve neglected this little blog but I’m sure all 20 of you don’t mind.

I want to dedicate this post to the awesomeness that was my dads wedding. There is nothing better than a wedding in the heat of summer in good ole’ New Orleans. I had never been to New Orleans before and I definitely consider New Orleans one of my favorite places now. Abigail came with me and I couldn’t have asked for a better friend to come with me. She was my partner in crime.

Sadly, we were only there for a couple of days and didn’t really have time to do as many touristy things as I would’ve liked. Nonetheless, it was AMAZING.

The food at the reception was amazing. If I could go back in time to eat that food again, I would.

The beautiful Roosevelt Hotel we stayed at. Me and Abigail had the complete set up. Our room was so amazing and was separated from all of my family and the wedding party, which was kind of nice to get away from the chaos.

my whole family and the everyone who came to the wedding all went to The Famous Door and literally danced the night away. I will never forget that night. I was filled with so much joy.IMG_7273No words.

All in all, such a great trip. It was so great to be with my family (that I never get to see) and be in a great city like New Orleans. I had the time of my life and will never forget that trip! I am already planning my next trip back. Can you say hello MLK weekend?!
