Taylor Swift & The Girls

Back in October, I bought 4 tickets for Maddie to attend the Taylor Swift concert at the Staples Center in L.A. The tickets were to be a Sweet 16 Birthday gift. And they were. Tonight Maddie, Madison, Hailey & Elyssa hit the town in style - complements of Dad.

Originally, James was going to take the girls to the concert. However, when this week rolled around we realized that he was chairing an industry conference in South Carolina. The idea of getting the girls up to LA and back with a 5 year old in tow was, to say the least, discomforting. So, Dad to the rescue! James ordered up a limo for the girls. This was a huge treat and the girls enjoyed having all the neighbors come out and wish them well.

The limo driver was a wonderful gentleman. As soon as the girls were in the car they loaded a CD and started blasting their music. I looked at the gentleman and said, "Oh you poor man, You're going to have headache by the time you get up there!" He responded, " Ma'am, I would much rather deal with noisy girls than drunk adults. Don't you worry about a thing, your girls will be safe." Once the girls reached the arena, he walked them to the door and made sure they were past the ticket takers and then called me at home to let me know they arrived safely. He also gave the girls his cell phone number and told them to call him when they were leaving the show. He met them at the exit and escorted them back to the car. He even stopped and escorted them into a Subway shop so they could grab something to eat on the way home! I can't tell you how thankful I am for that man's kindness and concern.


  1. Adorable and sounds like a blast!! I would like to go to the Taylor Swift concert, and oh the limo driver sounds like he was a gem and a lifesaver!!
