My husband wins for most awesome present giver. I don't know about you guys, but Caleb and I would much rather spend our money on experiences rather than a physical item (most of the time). If you follow me on instagram, you already know what we were up to Tuesday night!
So, my man told me what my birthday present was on valentines day. VALENTINES DAY!! That's how long he's had this planned... I can't say I'm surprised. He and I are both obsessed with One Republic, as well as The Script, so it was just the perfect gift. Time came and went, and it was here before we knew it.
The Script played for a good hour, I mean...they are a headliner band most of the time, so I was so excited. They were such amazing entertainers, and you could just tell they were so humbled by all the fans supporting them. Their originally from Dublin, Ireland...so they have some pretty sweet accents, too!
Then One Republic came on. EEK! I can't even tell you how awesome it was. I love when a band introduces themselves (even though we obviously already know who they are) and talk to the crowd, instead of ONLY singing.
If you read Monday's post, I talked about how I'd probably freak outtttt if they played the song Caleb sang to me at our wedding. Well guess what? THEY DID. Would you judge me if I said I cried for the first full minute...because that definitely happened. It seriously just brought back so many emotions from the happiest day of our lives and I wasn't gonna be sorry about it ;) ... they played every favorite of mine, some old stuff, and even a few covers (that they obviously rocked at), and I was pretty much in heaven the entire time. Waving my hands around, jumping like crazy, and just not having a care in the world how silly I looked.
One Republic sang for nearly two hours. I couldn't believe it! Ryan Tedder's voice is insane...Caleb and I practically had no voice after the concert was over!

I truly don't have many words for it...the whole night was just incredible. My husband does such a wonderful job at making me feel special. The night before, he surprised me with a "birthday week kick off" present...
Some women might be offended "oh, your husband got you a fitness magazine subscription?", well heck yes he did. He is my biggest motivator, and in NO way thinks I need to "shape up", just knows that I want to be a better, more healthy version of myself, so this gift had me all over the place with excitement!
My actual birthday is Saturday, and I'm working, so it means a lot that Caleb (and some awesome friends) have helped me celebrate all week long! I'm so lucky.
PS - today is my blogs birthday! My Kind of Yellow turns TWO! Yay!
