Ruining My Reputation
Okay, I’m just going to put it all out there and ruin my reputation right now by posting these photos. Yes, I went to a Taylor Swift concert last night. Yes, I sang really loudly and off key and knew every song. Does that make me totally lame? 😉
Actually, the really funny part was that out of the 15,000 people there, I think that 10,000 of them were teenage girls. Which makes me feel a little bit better, knowing that there are tons of other high schoolers who also like Taylor Swift. 🙂
Ruthie was the cutest thing ever. She kept holding her sign, and everyone would walk by and take pictures of her and say, “Oh, she’s so cute! Isn’t she adorable?” She was pretty quiet for the first ten minutes or so of the concert, sort of staring in awe. It was really funny to watch how speechless and mesmerized she was. We had okay-ish seats for most of the show, but about halfway in, Taylor surprised everyone by leaving the stage and coming to a little stage about twenty feet from us to sing a few songs. So Ruthie could see Taylor up close for about ten minutes. It was pretty cool.
All in all, it was a fantastic show, though. The Verizon Center is HUGE. So the sets and everything were super elaborate. And Taylor put on a great show. Everyone was really into it. Below I posted a few of my photos, as well as a Youtube video from a Paris performance so you can sort of see what it was like.
Pretty Enchanting, in the end. 🙂
More photos from our mini-vacation to Washington D.C. tomorrow!
