Jack Johnson and a little Camera Phone Lovin'

I know that in the song, "Better Together" that the lyric is "SEPIA TONE LOVIN'" but since I didn't have my camera, and all I had was my cell phone, I changed the lyric to suit myself. :)

My anniversary was back in May, as you may remember, and for my anniversary, husband gave me two tickets to Jack Johnson, whom I've loved for years and years. I was so stoked when the concert came around... but then, we couldn't find anyone to watch Z. What was I going to do? Would I have to sell my tickets and miss the show I'd been looking forward to forever and ever?

In steps my good friend Olivia, and her amazing willingness to watch Z for me... She is such SUCH a good friend. For those of you out there who don't know her... I'm so sad for you. Truly. Read her blog, and you'll find out in an instant how rad she is.

Anyway, I felt really bad, because we would have to be gone for a while, and that is a LOT to ask someone... She was willing to do it for FREE too! Just because she is super cool.

But, Husband's mother, (should I just call her "Mom?") decided that this concert would be a good reason to come up for a visit, and so she drove all the way up from Vegas just to help me out. She wanted us to have a good time and not feel rushed to get back because we needed to relieve a sitter... It's a good thing too, because we didn't get home until about 1AM... I would have felt TERRIBLE if I had done that to Olivia... Anyway, so I called Olivia and let her know that Mom was coming up and that though I appreciated her amazingness, that Z would be able to stay with Grandma. She was so sweet, and even said to me, "Anytime you need me, you just let me know!" Talk about a good friend!

So, the traffic sucked going up, but once we got there, I was so excited.

G Love followed ALO, and was pretty dang good. Then, once it was dark, Jack came out, and was PHENOMENAL! I can't believe what a gracious person he is. He played for an hour and a half and then came out for an encore and did 4 more songs. Throughout the whole show he was talking to the children near the stage, and reading people's signs and thanking everyone. He was so grateful that we had come to see him. So awesome.

Husband bought me a shirt, and I didn't know it until I got home, that 100% of the profits from any garment purchased, as well as 100% of profits from the ENTIRE TOUR are going to charity. CHARITY!!! So awesome.

I got to dance with my sweetie to Banana Pancakes and Angel and Better Together, as well as so many other songs that I adore. It was such a good night. Here are some photos to prove how amazing my night was... Yes, here is the Camera Phone Lovin'!

 I absolutely retouched my face in photoshop. Thank you for asking. :)

As you can see, I'm slightly obsessed with Lens Flare... I LOVE IT!

Hope you all had as amazing of a weekend as I did.

With Love,

Aw, you're WAY too nice! Of course I was willing to watch Ezra. No prob, next time you need someone just let us know! :)

I love having a great friend like Olivia!
I also love Jack, but my husband doesn't. I got to go about 5 years ago with some friends, and it was so awesome! I was so disapointed that I couldn't take my lousy point and shoot camera, but I do (did) have some lovely camera phone pictures!
