I'm joining the Travel Tuesdays link-up for the first time today, yay!!
This is kind of a throw-back post, but it's probably one of my favorite days ever: August 27, 2007! It was my 16th birthday and my best friends and I went to New York City to see/ meet Hilary Duff !! We were part of her fan club, so we bought $300 meet&greet/ ticket bundles. My friend Kaitlyn & I worked at a theme park all summer to afford it!
So Kaitlyn, her sister Melissa, their mom, Brittany, my mom and I all took a train to NYC bright and early that morning! We decided to walk from the train station to Radio City Music Hall and just appreciate the city and the beautiful weather! I had only been to NYC once before that, which is a little pathetic being that it's only like 2 hours away, but it was a lot of fun! We didn't do much else though because we kind of spent all our $$ on tickets... oops

We waited in line for what felt like forever after we picked up our blue VIP wristbands. Eventually we got inside and found our way to the M&G area! We wanted to be last in line so we wouldn't be rushed, but we ended up being a few people before the end which was still fine! I had to go first out of our group, which was incredibly nerve-wracking! I was soo excited and she was super nice! She signed my CD for me and then we took pictures. After the regular smiling one, I worked up enough guts to ask for a funny picture! She said of course, but right before my friend was about to take the picture, she made her stop to make sure I would be making a funny face too haha

The concert was awesome! We had 2nd row seats I believe, which is by far the closest I've been to the stage with an assigned seat. The other time I saw her live was in the wayy back and she looked like an ant or something. But this time we were super close and she put on a great show! Nothin like jammin' to Wake Up and Fly!!
The train ride home (at 2AM) was a little sad and scary. We were exhausted and there were quite a few creepers on board who may or may not have been on drugs?? And what we had been looking forward to ALL SUMMER was over :( Aaand the best part was I had my first day of driving in the morning at 8AM. Needless to say I was a zombie and probably scared my instructor. It was so worth it.
