We Drove All Night

First we were going, then we weren't. Then at the last minute I told my Mom we're going to see Celine!! And we didn't look back.

Our drive down to Indy was awesome and Ivy slept the whole way. We braved what felt like negative 50 degrees from the parking lot to the stadium with Ivy bundled in the sling (as my Mom prayed Oh, God dear Jesus let us make it) and this is what adventures in babywearing is really like.

Ivy was just as much as an attraction as Celine. But once the show started no one could take their eyes off the stage.

She is everything you'd imagine- beautiful, flawless, and personable- I loved the moments that she just chatted with us. And I don't think she's even capable of hitting a wrong note.

My mom was in awe. She couldn't find her words and said I hope she sings that...that... boat song!

And she did. The last song of the encore was My Heart Will Go On.

But my favorite part of the whole entire night (and worth every minute of our drive there and back, the arctic temps, and losing a contact during the third song which meant I watched the rest of the show one-eyed) was during Because You Loved Me. I got a little choked up and tapped my Mom on the shoulder. And told her I loved her. And I will never ever forget that ever.

Call it cheezy and predictable, whatever you want. That was our moment.

I love you, Mom.


There's still time- take your Mom or a loved one to see Celine. You'll never forget it.

OMG, I am the first to comment...Let me just start by saying, I am on a Celine HIGH this morning and nothing and no one can burst my bubble. It was worth the below zero walk from the parking lot with a baby bundled up.....I must have said Oh God help us 1000 times and he was with us! Thank you my wonderful daughter for the most magical night...spending it with my 2 favorite girls in the world. I can't wait to blog about it. My Heart Will Go on!!!!

Wow, that was quite the adventure, Stephanie. I'm so happy you had such an amazing time. I'm not a huge fan of Celine, but you can't deny the beautiful voice with which God gifted her. I'm sure she puts on an awesome show. I do like "Because You Loved Me." Actually it was the song that was sung at our wedding during the seating of our mothers :-) Perfect, I thought.
