"Speak Now" Tour 2011

I haven't been shy about the fact that I adore Taylor Swift. Despite her teeny-bopperness, I think she's an amazing songwriter, performer, and businesswoman.

So, when she came to town on June 4th, I was ALL about it.

I was blessed enough to be able to go backstage, again. And, again, Ms. Swift did not disappoint in the hosting department.......


The centerpiece to the "T-Party"




LAH and I




Apparently, Taylor designs the entire room. Can you imagine being the person who has to set this thing up at every show?!




"O" proudly standing next to the pillar. O is the granddaughter of my boss and was SUPER excited to be there. She was the calmed, coolest, and most collected 10 year old in the room (truly, she was).




E and O...... a gorgeous mother-daughter duo.







Remember that orange ruffled dress I bought? Here is it!!! When E took this picture on LAH's phone, I saw it and immediately demanded that LAH FB it and tag me, lol.




She enters the room............ I swear, I thought a couple of the little girls in there were going to explode, lol.




I love this picture :)







When she left our group, O looked at her mom and whispered, "I think I might pass out. I just talked with Taylor Swift."



After our M&G, Taylor's mom took us around the backstage. This year, they asked us not to take pictures. So, I didn't. I tell you.... being back there and then seeing the show makes me want to be a part of something like this.

LAH and I hung out in the lobby area for a while. We honestly weren't interested in the opening acts. Plus, we had a top-secret mission to bless some people with better seats :)




Her show is so amazing...............


I loved this..... a group had these light up letters. You'll see later how they could be changed.



"Mine", "The Story of Us", and a couple other songs I'm forgetting....





"Picture to Burn" and "Mean"




See? Isn't this adorable?



"Back to December" and "Dear John"





"Better Than Revenge"




"Speak Now"............. The bride is Claire from SYTYCD





"Fearless", "Last Kiss", and "You Belong With Me"




"Sparks Fly"..... I think





"Enchanted"......... It was a full-on ballet..... I loved it!!! That song is my favorite TS song.







"Haunted"..... SO AWESOME






"Long Live"




"Fifteen" and "Love Story"









It truly was one of the best shows I've seen. Our PD went and was planning on leaving early, but stayed the entire time. It was like an amazing production!!!

OMGOMGOMG. JEALOUS. I adore her. I don't think I loved her as much as I do until this last album, but I girl-crush HARD on T-Swift now.

First, hello hottie!

Second, I'm not much of a Taylor Swift fan.

But third, that does look like an AMAZING concert and if I were to see her live, she'd probably win me over.

This just cements the fact that I HAVE to go see her! She's totally not my style of music, but Speak Now is one of the best albums I've ever heard, in my opinion. Looks like a great night out!
