Cohen's BIG Surprise

Friday morning, after registration,  Cohen and I headed to Charlotte.  We were having a girl's weekend with my WAIFS!  We met Tina and Tara and headed up to Tara's house and later Jessica met us there.  Cohen had no clue what we were doing other than just spending the weekend up there and she was excited about that in itself.  Once we were all at Tara's we had a big surprise for Cohen.  We all asked Cohen if she could do anything she wanted what would she want to do.  Her answer: "go to McDonald's"--my child is easy to please!  We then asked her if she could go to any show what would it be, and her answer was: "Taylor Swift".  RIGHT ANSWER!!  We told her that is where we were going and she smiled but didn't say too much.  I was videoing her reaction and to be honest this child isn't one to give you a big reaction so I didn't think too much of it.  I turned the video off and we were like, "well we hope your excited because we sure are."  At that moment she looked at all of us and said, "Well I just don't believe that's where we're going."  I wish so bad I had still be recording that because her face was priceless.  We had to convince her a little more and then she got excited.  She wanted her hair curled and wanted some of Jessica's red lipstick.  Jessica had gone all out, finding the "perfect" Taylor Swift outfit for the night, and she was right on of course.  We quickly changed and got ready to go.  Of course we had to sit in traffic but we got there in plenty of time, got parked and headed to get the tickets.  Cohen was having little squeals the whole way in.  I loved seeing her so excited!  We had GREAT seats for the concert, right beside the stage.  A HUGE thank you to Matt for getting us such awesome seats!   Ed Sheeran opened for her which Cohen wasn't all that into.  She knew 1 song but when it was time for Taylor I held her up and she was doing these little screams for her.  It was precious!  We had such a fun time.  Taylor Swift knows how to put on a show so we were very entertained!  The show was great and she played for a full 2 hours.  Cohen did start to get tired about halfway through but she was a trooper and would stand in her seat every time she would sing a song she knew, which was most all of them.  On one song she actually came over right to our seats.  The final song was "We Are Never Getting Back Together" and the big confetti drop was a hit!  Cohen still has a few confetti hearts from the show.  I can't thank my WAIFS enough for everything they did to make this such a special night for Cohen--It definitely was!
Ready to go...RED lipstick and all!

Cohen wanted to take a picture of all of us :)

Ticket in hand and ready to go in!
Of course we had to get the cotton candy

Cohen's reaction to seeing her for the first time

Coming over to our seats


Cohen crashed 5 minutes after we got back to our car.  I know she was worn out from such a fun day.  She was up early on Saturday though ready for more fun.  We had a lazy morning then went out for some shopping that afternoon.  At the mall Cohen was wanting her picture made with all the mannequins.  She has always loved those things...weird I know!  She also had a fit when she saw the Easter bunny.  Now how she can love seeing a giant bunny but be scared of Santa Claus is crazy but she had a fit to see him so we let her.  We all had our iPhones out so we would have our own pics instead of buying theirs :)  I asked Cohen if that felt like a person in a bunny suit and she said, "no Mama, that was the real bunny and he was soft."  LOVE HER!  We finished our shopping trip with some take-out and headed back to eat in our sweats!  Nothing better!  Cohen and I drove back that night since I thought it would be easier for her to sleep during the drive.  It was such a fun time.  I love any time with the girls and this was such a special trip.  NOTHING LIKE IT!

Silly girl!
