My husband called from his work to me at my work, just to say hi. The whole time I'm like "did you win, is that why you are calling?, are you going to surprise me with the win?" LOL, poor guy was just trying to be sweet lol!

Doorbell just rang.... its about the time FedEx usually comes since our neighborhood is the last drop off area of the night due to being near the trucking facility.


DH "Did you order something? I think it's Fed Ex."

Me

DH "Oh, it's a kid from the neighborhood selling magazines."

Me "Stupid Kid!"

Good for you and what a tale you have to tell.

I got kissed by Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), but that's story for another time

Oh no.....we want to hear that one!

As we were sitting in our seats waiting for the show to start, a guy came over to us and asked how many people were in our party, and if we could come with him. We were spazzing out wondering if something was wrong with our tickets! Turns out, he worked for Paul McCartney, and during each of his concerts, Paul buys out the entire front row of seats and has his team randomly pick people to upgrade to the front row. I nearly burst into tears then and there. Never in a million years would have expected that to happen, and it was the greatest night of my life!

Our original seats:


New seats!


That is so awesome! I love Sir Paul. What luck!

everyone keeps getting excited about the Fed Ex trucks.....but I don't think they send out the Fed Ex until they speak to you via phone or email to confirm all your information. SO, what we need to be getting excited about is checking our Spam folders every 5 minutes for new emails. Not that I've been doing that or anything.
