I don't really listen to "popular" music. Typically, my music of choice is praise/worship, Christian kind of music. I don't really think there is anything wrong with listening to music that isn't "Christian"...I just tend to not like mainstream music very much.
The one exception to this is John Mayer....and its a BIG exception! I have loved John Mayer since his first album years ago, and I have wanted to see him in concert for forever. His tours haven't really come to my area, though, so I've been out of luck.
Until my oh-so-sweet hubby happened to see about a week ago that he was coming to Greensboro, NC (about 1.5-2 hours away) on March 15. And being the amazing man he is, surprised me with tickets!
We had a wonderful evening together, just the two of us...and about 12,000 other Mayer fans:)
(I have video, but I can't get it to load on my computer)
My hubby was quite skeptical about going...he isn't John Mayer's biggest fan. But he truly had a great time. I know this because he put all of my John Mayer music on his iPod this morning:)
Michael Franti & Spearhead was with John Mayer on this tour. Neither my hubby or I had a clue who they were. I didn't take any pictures of them, but he was quite energetic. But not bad....just not our style of music (we're not into reagae...sorry I can't spell!). He seemed to be a very nice guy and went into the crowd to see & dance with a disabled child, and even invited the other kids in the audience to dance on stage with him.
The only downside to the night was the umm...not-so-shy couple next to us that spent the evening groping and dancing on each other. They really made us uncomfortable after a while, but we did our best to ignore them. Our section also seemed to be completely full of high school girls. So if the music didn't make us deaf, their screaming and shrieking definitely did. But I won't complain...we had great seats and could see really well.
Really, I thought that John Mayer was amazing. I was a little nervous about how the whole experience would be since I've only ever been to Christian music concerts before, but I really did enjoy myself. And even if you don't like him, you have to admit that he is an incredible musician. He was super entertaining and funny too. The show really did exceed my expectations!
So, my point of sharing this was:
#1)record the memory for later, and
#2)take time to do fun stuff with just your spouse.
So often I get caught up in trying to be a good mommy, a good nursing student, and all my other responsibilities that being a good wife can fall by the wayside. But taking the time to do things alone with my hubby and focus on our relationship needs to be a priority if I want all of my other roles to be fulfilled too!
Take time this week to do something alone with your husband....your husband will thank you, your children will thank you, and YOU will thank you:)
