...and i loved it. kate and i were easily the oldest non-parents there. and our mom was probably the most excited out of all of us to actually see bieber in real life. what can i say? she's a belieber. (note: i feel like it's important to point out that we actually took our two younger cousins to the concert...it wasn't just me, kate, and mom. although, i wouldn't put it past us)

my sister and mom bought ear plugs earlier that day, but we didn't end up using them. however, we all suffered hearing loss thanks to all the tiny girls everywhere that screamed as if it was the last thing they would ever do. it was actually pretty hilarious to people watch before the concert started and see just how excited the little (and grown) girls were.

sidenote: to all the fathers, brothers, uncles, grandpas, and other beer-drinking, chair-sitting, eye-rolling men that i saw there: hats off to you. you must really love the girl(s) in your life to endure that entire concert without crying, puking (especially when bieber took his shirt off), and/or punching anyone. bravo.
