I’ve made it very clear over the years that I just adore my girl Taylor Swift. We share a name, a home town and well, that’s it. Ha. But seriously this girl is just the cutest and classiest, with mega talent that can’t be beat. Also how rad is it that this is one year and one day to the last time I saw her perform? Aka Halloween 2015 << recap there.
So when I saw that she was going to perform at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) during Formula 1 race weekend AND on my birthday, I knew I just had to be there. She covertly announced that she’d be performing, but little did I know that this would be her only performance of 2016. How lucky was I?
That image above was plastered ALL over Austin when I arrived and I totally understand why. My girl drew in record numbers to COTA with plenty of people just arriving just to see her only performance this year.
Now this post is mostly just a bomb of photos + some videos if you feel so inclined. Poor girl had a cold (she jokes in one of the videos that of course she gets sick a few days before her only 2016 show). She played hits from multiple albums which made my heart happy. She even rocked the piano and belted out “This is What We Came For” – the über hit from her ex. Girlfriend killed it.

Pretty sure I’m still singing “I don’t know about you…but I’m feeling 22!”
After the concert, my sis and I took over downtown Austin. I may have been going crazy on my Taylor high. It’s a legit thing – look it up.
I’d say it was a great birthday indeed.
Race recaps are almost over but I still have the final race to recap. And it was the most gorgeous day in Austin that Sunday. Texas may have stolen a little bit of my heart.
