Have you ever won anything really big.....important....astounding....unbeleivable...amazing?
Well, last year, I won some concert tickets.
Front Row...Pit Pass...Concert Tickets.....to the Taylor Swift Concert.
(That is so huge when you have a 13 year old daughter!)
We were so close we couldn't even get her whole body in the pictures!
Emily is leaning on the stage!!!
The only bad part was that we didn't sit down for 3 hours!
Can you even beleive this? We still can't!
Here is how it all went down.
A local country radio station has a contest every morning at 7:30 am.
We listen everyday on our drive to school, and play along with the contestants.
The station takes 2 callers...ask questions...then awards a point to the first person to buzz in and give the correct answer.
It is rare, that we try to call in. It depends on the morning and the prize being offered.
That week. Each morning, tickets were given away in the order of 5th row, 4th row, 3rd.....etc...
So on Friday, front row pit pass tickets were up for giving away.
We called everyday that week and never got through!
Of course, I thought it was useless, but wanted to be positive....so on Friday, we had 2 cell phones going at the same time.
And someone answered on the other end of Emily's cell phone!
She screamed...."No Way!!!"
Then she threw the phone to me!
So then I knew, it was up to me.
To be the best Mom ever (on this day) or the dumbest, worst disappointment...
'cause I had to WIN!
Remember, we had played along every morning. We knew the secret was to buzz in first!!!
Then you have 5 sec to think about the answer.
So that's what I did.
These were my questions...
1. What unlucky number is Taylor Swift's favorite number?
2. What 2 letters do Taylor Swift and Kellie Piclker share in their first name?
3. What is the name of the arena where the concert will take place?
4. When Taylor Swift sang "Tim McGraw" at the Country Music awards, who was sitting beside Tim Mcgraw?
I buzzed in first on every question.
I guessed "13" at #1. Correct! Yes!!!
I took the entire 5 sec to figure out #2. " L" Correct Yes!!!
I answered wrong to #3. That dang arena has been renamed way too many times.
The other contestant missed it too. Whew!!!
I guessed that Tim was sitting beside his lovely wife, "Faith". Correct again!
Lots of cheering, screaming etc....
I was the coolest Mom ever! At least, I felt that way!
What a great day!
Remembering is so much fun!
