I just got back from a mini trip to Colorado and I had the best time!!
My favorite band, Metro Station (yes that band from 2007 who sings Shake It, JUDGE ME) is currently on their final U.S. tour and their 10 year anniversary tour, so um yeah when I heard about it I knew I had to go or else I would be sad for, I don’t know, only the rest of my life. The only problem is their Utah show was 21+ and your lil home girl is only 20. When I found this out, I was in sheer panic mode. Frantically googling where to buy a fake I.D. trying desperately to figure out how to make this work.
Turns out fake I.D.’s are expensive and unreliable so the solution was going to the next closest show to me, which turned out to be only three and a half hours away. Somehow in all this craziness I convinced my boyfriend to come with me? Whaaaaa? I know he’s the best!
I’ve been to Metro Station before,
but this was hands down the most fun I’ve ever had. I was so overwhelmed with emotions, at one point I cried. Yeah, I was so happy that I cried. There’s just something so magical about being in a room full of people who like the same shitty music as you. You’re all dancing and singing your hearts out together. I don’t think I stopped smiling the whole night. I wish I could bottle up that feeling, there’s really nothing else like it.
However this is the only time I didn’t get a picture them, LAME! This was the best that I got:
Don’t mind me, I’m just a sweaty mess from dancing and singing my heart out all night. I also look sad? It’s really just because I felt awkward taking this picture, I’m actually the happiest I’ve ever been on the inside, I promise.
We got breakfast/brunch at this super cute little cafe called Dream Cafe (if you’re ever in Grand Junction it’s 10/10). Sean and I have a rule (okay fine, I have a rule, Sean just plays along) that if we’re in a new place we can only eat at local restaurants, because what’s the fun in eating somewhere that you can eat at literally anytime when you’re at home. Anyway, I got some fruit and a cinnamon roll the size of my head
On our way out of town we decided to stop at the Colorado National Monument. It’s kind of like a mini Grand Canyon, it was breathtaking. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Sometimes I’m just so amazed at how beautiful the earth is. I feel very blessed to get to see and experience these things. Mother earth sure is a dime. wow
We were in Colorado for less than 24 hours but it was incredibly fun and definitely worth the long (boring) drive. I love mini trips, I love going to a new place and getting to explore, even if it’s just for a few hours. It’s crazy to me that I didn’t even know this place existed and now it’s one the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. That’s so rad. LIFE IS SO RAD!!!
I feel like I’m not making much sense any more, so I’ll stop rambling. I’m just so happy & in love with life and the memories I’m making. The world has so many beautiful things to see, and that makes my heart so giddy. I’m humbled and excited by all the possibilities life has to offer.
Thank you so much for reading and being part of my journey!!
