10 Things I Love

My friend Jessica over at Miss Southern Vol tagged me in this cute game, and I am happy to play along!

So here are my 10 things...

1. Animals
I love my pets the most, obviously, but I reeeeeally love animals. I'm that person who will chase a stray dog, no matter how long it takes (Doug and I actually did this last week, and we found Simba's home! Yay!)

2. Chocolate/food
I could easily make this whole list just about food. But to name a few, I love:

Chicken fingers (and fries)
Brownie Sundae

3. TV/movies
I am an entertainment freak. A few of my favorite shows right now are:

(Rosie Pope is so adorable!)

(I was surprised by how much I like this show!)

4. Blogging
When I started this blog, I had no idea what I was getting myself into! I love it. It has quickly become my favorite hobby. I love writing (never thought I'd say that) about my life, and I love reading others' blogs. And I especially love all of the friends that I've made through blogging! I really don't know what I would do without it everyday! You can't really understand it unless you blog.

5. Family
I couldn't do this list without mentioning my family. I know this is supposed to be 10 'things', but family is at the top of the list for me. I love the little family that Doug and I have now, but there is also nothing better than spending time with both of our families. We are blessed!

6. Travel/Europe
If I won the lottery, there would be no question of what I'd do. I would travel all over the world, eat amazing food, and of course, bring Doug (and the fur babies) along with me. The first place I would go back to is Europe. I loooooove it over there!

7. Decorating/Planning
I had to combine these 2 because they are kind of similar. I love planning and decorating a home, a party, a shower. I am a very organized person so planning all of the little details is so fun to me! I've always dreamt of being a wedding planner...maybe one day!

8. Reading
Reading is definitely one of my favorite things to do ever. I can easily read a book in a day if time allows for it. I was doing great on my reading plan until April...I think I'm just going to skip April's book, South of Broad, since I've heard mixed reviews and read "The Help"...I've heard such great things about it and the movie looks so good!

9. Margaritas
No explanation needed. They are just goooooood.

10. John Mayer
I have loved John since the 8th grade, when I saw him live for the first time. Since then, I have seen him a total of 13 times live, and I'm nowhere near finished.

(I know it's supposed to be 10 things....but, it's my blog, so there will be 11 :)

11. iPhone
My favorite gadget EVER. I am hooked and there's no way I could ever go back to a regular phone. Thanks to everyone on here who convinced me to get it!

I'm supposed to tag people to do this, but I'm opening this up to everyone! If you play along, let me know! :)

John Mayer

As always, the John Mayer concert was INCREDIBLE!

I saw my wonderful friends, Kathryn and Alissa

John sang me sweet songs

and rocked out on his guitars

Funny story- right before we left the apartment to go to the concert, Doug came out dressed in his shirt, shorts, and a headband. One of those 80's sweatbands that makes your hair stick straight up. So I told him to take it off, obviously! He was sad that he couldn't look like a fool at the concert.

So when John Mayer came on stage, Doug was appalled at what he saw.

Yes, John Mayer was wearing a headband. Oops!

I videotaped his performance of "Free Falling" but blogger apparently doesn't want me to post videos.

My J May Obsession

I have an obsession. John Mayer. Not so much obsessed with him as a person, but more with his amazing music. This obsession started early, when I was in 8th grade. I remember the first time I ever heard "No Such Thing." I went to his On the Bricks concert in Atlanta that year, and I was hooked.

Since then, I have been to his concert every year, plus a few. Up to yesterday, I had been to 10 John Mayer concerts. I never miss him when he comes to Atlanta, and I hopefully never will! All that said, let me tell you about last night!

I was in bed, ready for a good night's sleep, when I decided to check out the details on John Mayer's website for tonight's (Sept 8th) concert that Doug and I are going to. I am not a twitter person, I really don't get the point of it, so I never use it. But, I believe fate stepped in last night! On J May's website, it shows his twitters (tweets?) and I saw that he had just posted a surprise gig at Eddie's Attic, where he got his big break about 10 years ago in Atlanta. I realized that it was after 11pm and none of my John Mayer-obsessed friends would be awake or anywhere close to Atlanta. Doug had a huge meeting early this morning, so he couldn't go with me. But I HAD TO GO!! I could not miss this amazing opportunity! So I threw on some clothes and jumped in the car. (Mom- if you are reading this, don't worry, it was very safe!) It took me only 30 minutes to get there, but by the time I got there, the line was huge and they had just let in the last few people.

I figured that this would happen, but I was still so disappointed. I met some awesome girls in the line, and one of them found a speaker in the back of the building where we could listen to the concert! So although I technically didn't see John, I listened to him reminisce of his Atlanta days and sing me sweet lyrics. We had our own little concert/dance party and all was good again.

So I don't know if that counts in my concert list, I think it does. So tonight's show will be my 12th! I can't wait!!! I wish I had my pictures from when I had front row at his show at the Tabernacle about 5 years ago. They are on my parents' computer at home. I got amazing pics and I even touched his shoe :)

One other fun fact. John and I now share the same initials (minus the middle one). Which makes the fact that I have a huge bumper sticker on my car that says JM all the more fun.
