I have a huge crush on John Mayer if you couldn't tell.


I should probably provide some of my newer readers with a little background about myself. I love music plain and simple. I went to my first concert in 1996 and I haven’t looked back. Up until a few months ago I was keeping up two blogs: a weight loss blog and an everyday life blog. The reason for keeping the two blogs separate was I did not want everyone to know about my weight loss efforts who read my regular blog. Now, almost 3.5 years later they are start to mesh into one. So, I am using this space as a place to write about my ups and downs with weight loss AND my life. I realized the two go hand in hand and it is just easier to keep up with one blog.

So some of you have noticed I go to a lot of concerts. This is very true. I love music and will travel to see it. My favorites include Dave Matthews Band and John Mayer. Now since we are all friends I will let you in on a little secret. I have seen Dave Matthews Band 73 times and John Mayer 19. My favorite venues in the Unites states are the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon, the Gorge in George, WA, Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO, and the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. I wouldn’t really say I have a favorite concert, but I do have quite a few fond memories at concerts including DMB at the Gorge in 02 and at Red Rocks in 05.

I hope to continue to be able to go to concerts. I realize I am very fortunate to have the money to do this, parents who have encouraged me to do what I love and a job that allows me the time to do it.

For those of you wondering, I sort of work in the music business-venue management. I love it. I never set out to work out a venue, but it really is a great job.

I will post more about my Mayer weekend with pictures soon ☺
