getting the tickets.
February 21, 2007
We arrived in Columbus followed by two massive tour busses.... ( guess whose?) haha. I seriously had my face plastered against the window... poor isaac... i think i smothered him in the process. No one believe me that they were his busses until men with " Awake " clearance badges around their necks walked to them. haha! However, he wasnt on the either bus but they were his. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.... which just so happend to be where Mr. Groban himself was staying. :) on floor 12... accecsible only with a room key :(
we stood in the hotel lobby because there was no way I was leaving that spot until I saw him.. haha. In the process of hanging out in the lobby we met two amazing grobanites! Donna & Sandi. I owe a lot to these two women!! They showed me the ropes at being a Grobanite and its just soo amazing. So Isaac didnt want to stand there he wanted to go to the room to put his stuff down and he said give me the key and i said give me your camera haha! so we switched. Five minutes later.... Josh comes out of the hotel walking Sweeney!! he was getting ready to go to the arena for soundtrack. Donna & Sandi pretty much pushed me at him haha They were like GOOOO!!! haha. So i walked over and asked him if he had a second to sign my poster and he said sure. and then i asked for a picture and he said of course. It was the most amazing thing ever!!! That hug, picture, autograph, and moment will live with me forever! Four years of wanting to go to a concert, meeting him, etc... was all realized in that moment. I couldnt take it and I just cried. It was amazing and I hadnt even been to the concert yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the poster :)
i didnt want to eat anything... i was too scared that my stomach would have one of its episodes... and there was no chance i was gonna miss this concert!!! I had already had my thrill of the day.... but i was psyched to go to the concert! We went to Max & Erma's that was connected to the hotel. The entire hotel was book solid... all grobanites. haha We sit down ... and isaac gets up to leave to call his mom.... and TIM CURLE walks in!!!!! Tim Curle is Josh's percussionist in the band. I was like can this really be happening! soo he sits down at the table next to us and i immeadiately jump up and asked him for a picture and he was the nicest guy... i love him. haha ( that picture will be up later... wasnt digital.. stupid disposable camera haha) ( i will have more pictures up later when i get them developed!) Poor Isaac.... he always left when something amazing happend but......
it was time for the concert! i bought a 2 t-shirts, a poster, a program, and a keychain. :) haha Our seats were absolutely amazing!!!! right on the stage!!! It was just an amazing night! Honestly I couldnt have asked for a better day! the best one of my life! Josh did three encores... that were AMAZING! HE is AMAZING! No exceptions. Its Josh Groban all the way!!!
I dont know how many more times i can use the word AMAZING... and im sorry... i just dont have enough words for all the feelings! Everytime I see the picture of him and I and the autograph... i cry. I just cant believe it happened to me!
I cannot count the times i cried yesterday but they were tears of joy, hope, excitement! Dreams & Miracles came true yesterday! My life is complete. Seriously. This is not my last Josh concert! I assure you that!! <3333
Isaac - thank you soo much for accompaning me on this amazing trip! i couldnt imagine it without you. It was such a great trip and im glad you could experience this with me. Of everyone... i think you understand me and my josh groban fix and you realize that he isnt just a pretty face.... but an extrordinary musician! Thank you a million times over Isaac!
