Kelly Clarkson!

I believe I married the absolute best man out there! Jason is everything I have ever dreamed of in a best friend and husband - he's so smart, passionate about life and music, big on communicating, has a crazy sense of humor, absolutely gorgeous and remains so positive in some of the most trying circumstances. I'm so grateful to the Lord for blessing me with such an amazing man. Over the weekend we were able to accomplish quite a bit more on the house, which was so nice. Jason had told me that he had Monday night off and didn't want me to stress about working on the house, but instead have a date night with him. He asked me to think about where I wanted to go to dinner and then maybe go out to a movie with him afterwards. So all day Monday, I was asking various people at work which restaurant they would recommend we try. I was so excited to have a date night with him where we just enjoy each other's company. Monday afternoon rolls around and I'm sitting at my computer busily working away when I glance up to see him standing there with a big ol grin on his face. It took me completely by surprise, and he asked if I wanted to go grab a cup of coffee with him. Absolutely! So we head down to Starbucks and and talk until the meter on his truck outside runs out. He offered to walk me back to my desk and I wanted to give him the piece of cake that Mary, our Office Manager had saved just for him. When I came back to the elevators on our floor with the cake in hand, he handed me some tickets. "What is this?", I ask him. I'm trying hard to read the words, but all I see is "Kelly Clarkson" and I can't seem to decipher anything else on the tickets. I asked him - "Is this for tonight??!? Is this for her concert?" I started squealing and jumping up and down. I couldn't believe it! Months ago I had bought tickets the minute they came on sale when she was scheduled to perform at the Sommet Center downtown. I had 4th row seats in the center on the floor and was so pumped. Then she cancelled her tour and rescheduled for a night at the Ryman. I missed when the tickets went on sale and they sold out that day. I was so upset. While we were in Seattle for Thanksgiving, my friend Brooke calls to tell me that she's happened to come across tickets that she bought off a friend of hers. I was so happy for her, but so bummed that I wasn't able to see Kelly at all. I would have to say, she is hands down my favorite artist. Turns out throughout all the agonizing of mine, Jason quietly just listened while holding on to tickets he had bought off a friend of his OVER 2 MONTHS AGO! How on earth was he able to keep a secret like that for so long???? Amazing! His friend Jason Mush that he works at Mortons with sold him the tickets and ended up buying another set on Ebay, in which he took his friend Mandy with him. It was seriously the best surprise and I'm so blessed by my thoughtful and amazing husband. Thank you baby, I love you!!!
