Best Surprise Ever!

I tend to think that I am not surprised easily.  And I think that's pretty accurate.  In fact, right now I can only think of two times I was very surprised.

I've gotten lots of really sweet, thoughtful gifts.  Seriously, my family and friends are really great!

This gift though I was most surprised about for sure!

My parents got my sister and I VIP tickets to the Newsboys concert that I wanted to go to!!  I would have never guessed they'd get me VIP tickets, so it was so cool!

So I love concerts....a LOT!  The only issue I have with them is that they are short.  I go to one at night and have so much fun.  Then the next day I get up and think "I so wish I could go to that again today!"  I just love going to concerts.

And secretly (or maybe not so secretly!), I've always wanted to be "famous."  I always thought it would be fun to perform in front of people and such.  But since I don't really have any musical talent (lol!), I have decided that it would be fun to know "famous" people.  Considering, though, that I don't know anyone "famous," I decided it would be fun to meet "famous" people.  And thus, I have tried to meet people who I think of as "famous" (basically, Christian musicians).

So, as you can see, VIP tickets to a concert were a really wonderful gift!

I'm in the blue shirt.

Thanks Dad and Mom! :)

  5. What a great surprise! It reminds me of the night I got to meet Michael W Smith and Amy Grant. I had emailed a friend who works for Compassion to see if she'd be at the concert. Her husband is THE Compassion music guy - knows and works with all the Compassion artists. Well, he told me to come early so I could meet them. I was so surprised and shocked as meeting them had been a life long dream of mine.

    On a side note...my husband served Michael Tait at a restaurant one time way back when we were in college.
