Awesome moment in life #3: the moment when your boyfriend realizes you got him tickets to the sold out concert he desperately wants to go to.
So Mike loves the Black Keys and they are coming to Cains on October 10th. He was super bummed out last month when he went to buy tickets and they were already sold out. So of course, I made it my mission to find a pair of tickets to give him for his birthday. I will be honest though and say that there was some selfishness behind this hunt. I have grown a mild obsession for the Black Keys and was really sad myself to think I wouldn't get to see them live. This is one of the few noncountry bands I know and really like enough to see in concert. Anyway, thanks to Craigslist and an awesome Fiji alum, I scored two tickets. As you all know, I am a terrible secret keeper when it comes to surprises so I decided to give them to him early (2 weeks before his birthday) to save myself from ruining the surprise and to make sure he didn't keep stalking craigslist himself to buy them. I wrapped them up in a tshirt, wrapped the tshirt rather nicely in a box and gave it to him today. His face when the tickets fell out definitely made it worth it. Now here's hoping that I can add the concert as an awesome moment in life on October 10.
Little update on my life: My mom is doing great. She finally got cleared to ride in the car for more than just trips to the doctor. She is still hurting and she can't do anything around the house yet (no cooking, cleaning or lifting anything), so I still help out whenever I can and go over to spend time with her and my dad. I started grad school last week and that is going really well. I have great professors and I am looking forward to learning a lot. I am gradually dealing with not having a real job, but am looking forward to substituting at several different districts. I now have 2 roommates, and they are both incredibly busy with medical school type things (Holly's in OT school at OU and Danielle is in medical school at OSU). They are so fun though and I'm really excited about the rest of the year living with them. Other than that, theres not a lot going on here. Looking forward to a time when people are all around again and I can catch up with everyone.
I'll leave you with a cute little video from the Black Keys. I love the song (even though its not my favorite by them).
