Here is my journal entry that I wrote about me and my friend's aMAZing day on August 31st. This was the day before our little family packed up and took off for Disneyland. I almost missed out on this day and I am SO glad we decided to leave a day later!!!! Enjoy a look into my funny life =).
Psst...are you awake? I can't sleep because WHAT an amazing day!!! The plan was simple, Maria's birthday was today/yesterday so we were to get ready at my house, go shopping, go to lunch and then to see Sara Bareilles up in Park City. We ended up leaving super late but still in good spirits ready to shop! All the way there and through out we would joke about meeting Sara (yeah right!) and how we would totally be best friends. We found SO many cute things, most of them the last in the shop or just our sizes. Sign of good things to come? We ate at the California Pizza Kitchen for lunch which was beyond yummy and topped it off with a birthday sundae. Then it was off to Park City. Let me tell you one thing about Maria right now. She has been SUCH a dedicated runner that she actually injured her foot and has been wearing a boot for the last few days after seeing the doctor. There were over 5,000 people at this outdoor concert so we ended up parking VERY far away and having to walk quite a bit all the way uphill. I could tell it was hurting her foot so we decided to check out the merchandise and use the restrooms. The line to get in was even longer than the hike to get up there (literally) and hoping the people at the front would have pity on at least her I explained the situation. They let her sit up there as I went to go all the way to the back of the 5 mile line to wait. I had barely left when I ran into someone I had met through my cosmetics blog (love you Heather!). We chatted and giggled about seeing each other and crazy life events. Then she tells me she actually won a radio contest and she was waiting around to meet Sara!!!! Hearing this sent chills through me and I just started laughing and petting her arm, "I just have to touch the person going to meet Sara . Tell her I love her, and that we should be friends and...". "Excuse me but do YOU want to meet Sara too?" I turn to see the guy in charge of this little group going backstage. After picking my jaw up off the ground he tells me that another person that had one hadn't shown up and there was an opening. I told him about Maria and he said to go and get her. WE WERE GOING TO MEET HER!!!!! I just couldn't believe it! We went backstage, shook her hand, chatted, got pictures and I showed her a video of Branson singing her song "Brave". She loved it (hi, he's darling LOL) and just like that we had met the girl we had only joked about meeting. EPIC!!! Upon leaving I asked if we needed to go stand in line now (lawn seating so I'm sure all the lower areas were taken). He said we were good to just walk in AND that Maria's boot qualified her to sit in the handicapped seating. THIS DAY COULD NOT GET ANY BETTER!!!!! We were able to sit right at the feet of Miss Bareilles as we belted out our favorite songs and snapped picture after picture. I could not have imagined a better day and am SO glad I got to share it with such a dear friend. Happy Birthday Maria of mine. Love you!!!!
