Spoiled Mommy...

If you've read just about any post on my blog, you'll know that I'm a music lover. I have to have my music. At work, in the car, while walking...there is a soundtrack that accompanies my life, albeit usually not as cool as that might sound.

Back when I was a naive 18-year-old and a freshman in college, I "took advantage" of all the credit card offers that filled my tiny little box in the on-campus mail room. I quickly found, that most likely due to my "higher earning potential" after having some college experience (like three weeks), that I got new offers every day. (I will say I didn't go too buck wild, but I did have a J Crew card. Therefore, I was teh awesome.)

One of the offers I jumped on in that pre-mp3 world was an application to join a music club. You know the kind - 27 free CDs but then you had to send back the little card saying you didn't want Michael Bolton's Greatest Hits or they'd bill you $29.95 for it.

One of the first CDs I ordered was Jewel's Pieces of You. I loved that CD. I mean, what self respecting emo teenager WOULDN'T fall in love with "Who Will Save Your Soul"?

So imagine my delight when someone emailed me last week and asked if I might want to SEE Jewel in concert in Milwaukee? And meet her during a special backstage performance? I admit - I actually squeed like a girl. (Milwaukee people - you can still get tickets!)

So a friend and I are heading to the Pabst Theater tonight to see Jewel with special guest Kip Moore. Not only are we going to a magnificent historical theater to see a great show, we are doing it SANS KIDS. (If you want to be jealous of anything, be jealous of that.)

really cool Web site has been set up with more information on the concert series, sponsored by Country Finanacial. You can enter to win tickets to a "flyaway package" or instantly win free music downloads.

Check the Web site for tour dates in your city. Even if you can't make the show, I promise to post pictures soon so that you can live vicariously. Hee...

I made out with the lead singer of a great band in the Pabst theater.

I officially hate you and am green with envy now. That is all.
