I would like to share some pictures with you. (They're phone pictures, so please excuse the lack of quality.)
Do you notice anything.... special about this picture?
When we bought the tickets for this show it was during the pre-sale in June. They went on sale at 10 am so I sat and clicked refresh on the website starting around 9:50.
When I ordered them I didn't pay attention very well and it said "Row 2" so I was happy and excited that we got such good seats.
Well, last night we were trying to figure out where our actual seat numbers would put us (I like being on the aisle if possible) so we looked up the seating chart and double checked our tickets.
Turns out, I was a bit off. We weren't in Row 2.
We were in the ORCHESTRA PIT Row 2!!! We were about 10 feet from Joe the entire night. It. Was. AMAZING!! We were close enough to see the veins bulging in his hands and the sweat dripping off his face. Ben really likes to watch a guitarists fingers and we were totally close enough to do that.
And now this blanket
Is a little more awesome because it got knit on while we were waiting.
It was a wonderful night of crazy good seats, great music, and so much clapping my arms are sore.
And then I got a milkshake on the way home.
