Sometimes You Have To Be Spontaneous

Every  once in a while life presents you with an opportunity you simply can’t say no to.  Then again, sometimes it doesn’t , and you have to make your own opportunities!! 

Romantic Hubby and I knew Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift were playing less then three hours from our house this past weekend.  We did not have tickets for this show.  So what did we do?  We scoured the Internet at 11PM on a Thursday night and found amazing seats for this fabulous concert.  We bought those tickets!!

Was it crazy to buy tickets on a Thursday, pull our kids our of school on a Friday, not even tell the kids?  Justdo it,  load them up and go? 

Just call me crazy!

Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and feet 17 rows from the stage planted firmly on the Astro Turf.  It was SO the right thing to do!


I hope you will join me in my not so Wordless Wednesday!

  1. Not crazy at all! I totally would have done the same. I took my daughter to see Taylor Swift the year before last. Such an amazing performance! I’m sure the kids LOVED the surprise!! 🙂

      Taylor Swift put on such a great concert! Fun and age appropriate! We all enjoyed ourselves. It was def the right choice 🙂

  2. oh wow…def a cool surprise…and breaking kids out of school…woot…ha…nice….

    • Stephanie says:

      It was so much fun it made me think we should be breaking the kids out of school a little more often 🙂

  3. We did that with Lion King on Broadway. Although we still had them go to school the next day. 🙁 Sometimes you have to take risks. Somethings are really great learning experiences. Who gets to go to a show with lights and fun that often?

    BTW We sent a note to my older son’s school the next day saying he might be tired. If he has too many problems call us, and we’ll pick him up. The younger one was in preschool, so that was a little different.
