On this very day...

2 years ago 2 of my dreams were fulfilled...

1- My lifetime favorite band weezer held auditions for local people to play onstage with them. My friend Mandy and I busted out our instruments, auditioned (see video here), and were selected (among others) to play onstage with them. Playing my heart out in front of thousands of people, with my favorite band was surreal. I still can't believe that happened. It gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.

2- Among those thousands of people watching the show was my honorary guest (and friend at the time) Steven.  I don't know what happened but I'm pretty sure that seeing me on stage in all my violin/ weezer glory made me pretty much irresistible to him. After the concert the stars aligned and starry eyed Steven asked me to be his gurl fren... and then we may or may not have kissed.

Here's a cheesy secret.
It was also this night 2 years ago that we knew that we wanted to be together forever.

My first time visiting this guy in Vegas.


  1. lol we were at that concert! We could pick you out on stage because of the flower in your hair. It was a fun surprise! Congrats to you two. We love the 10%! :)

  2. CUTE! Love the story and super love the picture. :)

  3. My bets are on that you KISSED! Great posting, Emily!

  4. It was the red couch, wasn't it?!

  5. I just read an article about the Weezer frontman the other day. I guess in '01, he called his fans "little beeotches." Weird. They asked him why, and he didn't really have an answer. Anywho.
