Bieber Fever

Last night we had an awesome time at the Justin Bieber concert. It was lots of fun. Screaming girls, rock stars, and lots of dancing. Did I mention screaming girls?

We left for the concert around 2:30 p.m. and headed towards Nashville. We jammed to Justin Bieber for a while and then I took requests from my Ipod. We stopped to eat at Longhorns on the way. The girls were so excited all the way there. Leah said it was a dream come true for her. She thinks Justin Bieber is cute. Luckily, Summer still just thinks it is about the music, at least I hope that is what she is thinking about.

When we got there, we gave the security guy our VIP parking pass which saved us $25 and from having to hunt for a parking place. When we got in front of the arena, there was a preconcert starting. The girls enjoyed it, but Summer was more interested in walking around to the various booths and seeing what games they had to play. One had two huge fuzzy dice that you got to roll for a chance to win silly bandz or a Justin Bieber folder. Leah and I both rolled a seven (the winning number), so she got a folder and Summer chose the silly bandz. There was one stand where you signed up to win 2nd row seats. They also got to sign a huge poster of Justin Bieber. Summer wrote her name backwards, right to left. I wish I would've gotten a picture of it when she was finished, but I didn't.

They got their pictures made with a cardboard Justin Bieber.
It was super hot outside so we took a few breaks inside to cool down and minimize sweating. Summer and I enjoyed a rock star energy drink to keep us both going through the concert. She had no nap and the concert did not start until 8:00 our time. There were several opening acts, but the best, in my opinion, were Sean Kingston and Iyza. Justin Bieber actually didn't start until 10:00 our time. She was sooooo ready when he came on the stage and snapped right out of cuddling up in my lap and sucking her thumb. She made the mistake of not taking Teddy into the concert. I have a feeling her cousin Leah might have influenced this decision. I told her when we left the car she should take it, but no. Then while we were waiting for it to start, she needed it. But, it was too late because there was no-reentry to the concert. Once you were in, you were in. She did make it through without a major breakdown though so that is good.

Our seats were in a sky box. We were the first ones there, so we got to pick our seats first. Justin Bieber: What a heart throb!!! LOL
This was Summer's favorite song that he performed. I think the floating heart might have had a lot to do with it though. He came out over the crowd a few times in different metal contraptions. And, oh did he woo the girls. It was a little cheesy at times, but it was a great concert all in all. I must admit I even have the Bieber fever myself right now. I'm sure it will wear off, but I'm enjoying it while it lasts. Tonight Summer and I are actually looking at some of his videos on iTunes to possibly buy and put on our Ipods. Right now our favorite song is "U smile, I smile." Wish he had a video for it, but there is none on iTunes so I guess not.

After the concert, the girls picked out souvenirs and we hit the road before the crowds left.

The girls stayed up for longer than I anticipated on the ride home, but were both sleeping shortly after midnight. When we were about 15 minutes from Leah's house, my back tire went flat so there I was on the side of the road at 1 a.m. trying to loosen the lug nuts. That did not happen, but my brother in law was nice enough to come help me. It was not the ending I had planned for the night, but we got home safe and sound and happy as larks. Justin Bieber rocks! And, so do we! :D
