A night to remember in Edmonton.

on September 3, 2011 - 9:22am

So close, yet so far! The mission to complete bucket list item #82 failed. Am I sad about it? Not really and that's because last night was one of the most amazing concert experiences I had and I am still grinning ear to ear.
I keep telling everyone that I would give anything to be back in my exact seat, reliving every moment last night.
Being that I was able to complete #20 on the list...Being a VIP at a concert...I couldn't be more elated. When we got to our seats, which were in second row, I sat there in awe. I had never been this close to such a big scale production, let alone one being put on by my all time favourite performer.

The day has arrived!

Some times I forget what it feel like to be a little kid on Christmas morning. Well this morning I got up and felt that exact feeling for the first time in countless years.
As I said to my friends "It's Josh Groban Day in my little world!!!".

While on the boards the other night and in the midst of checking to see if I was lucky enough again this week to win the meet and greet with Josh, I sadly found that I hadn't, but had recognized another screen name. I was quick to grab my phone and contact a very good friend of mine from University.

Well the plan for today was to go into crafting mode and create my masterpiece poster. Plans changed.
I truly believe that if I wasn't called into work I would have missed the chance to enter a local contest. I really didn't think I was going to win as I had entered similar contests many times over and never won. I think it was all meant to be this time. I entered this contest and walked away for a couple hours to come back to messages bombarding my inbox.

The experience is drawing near...

So yesterday was finally the milestone on the countdown week till Josh.
As expected, my excitement level has grown as I received my email of the VIP procedures. This is going to be quite the experience! What I have failed to do in preparation for this day still, is make what I call "the most epic concert poster ever"!
I still have a few days to get the creative juices flowing, but I know it's going to be good in the long run.

Only 6 sleeps till show time!!!

Bring out the crayons and poster board!

I making countdowns to things, but it always gets me more excited about the upcoming event. It is the part after that I hate the most...the counting of how many days since the event happened.

A couple days ago I figured it was about time that I start making a motion to complete bucket list item number #82. Ideas have been brewing and lists are starting to be made on the supplies that I need to purchase.
I can honestly say I have never been so determined in my life to complete some that I would consider so cheesy...this would be a flashy sign.
I figured if this is the one thing that will help me towards completing a bucket list item, will it really hurt me to make it. Nope! Plus I am thinking I will have a little fun with it anyway.
