Before the concert, my friend's daughter and her friend made t-shirts... Well, actually, since they involved iron-ons, my friend made them, and her daughter designed them. They turned out pretty cute. Maybe even cuter than the t-shirts they were selling at the concert. (Which we all bought, by the way.)

Taylor is from Reading, PA so this was sort of a "home town" show for her. She played two consecutive nights in a row, and we caught her on the final night.
Our seats were super high up in the stadium but the screens were big, we could feel a breeze (thank god!), and we got to see a great view of the light show provided by our bracelets (our "gift from Taylor" given to us as we walked in the gates of the concert).

We left the concert just a few songs before the end (we had looked up the set list online, so we knew what we had to miss...) to avoid the traffic jam that was sure to follow. We did have to miss her final song, which was "Shake it Off". But like I said, we knew what we were missing, so it didn't feel so bad.
Anyway, what a great weekend I had in Pennsylvania. The concert- obviously, and also spending time with my friend who's been my bestie since we were 11 years old! We would have been big fans of Taylor for sure, as we are now, even tho we are decades beyond age 11.
And no trip is complete without a little flea-marketing/antiquing. We went to the same area we had gone during one of my fun visits a couple of years ago. I bought a big jar of old costume jewelry- Lots of it was junk I threw straight into the trashcan, but look at all this stuff that is awesome!! I plan to use for repurposing!!! I had the best time digging through my little treasure chest when we got home.
