September 4th marked the 2nd Anniversary of Sarah and I going to see The Killers at the Boston Garden, and coming out total, raging, obsessed Fangirls. Life has not been the same since! We got to spend our Killers-versary together watching The Killers Live at Royal Albert Hall, and eating cake. (It was morning and it was coffee cake, but still – cake!)
That fateful concert and the start of this blog happened at about the same time so I can easily chart the rise of The Obsession here. From the first days of finding any little reason to post about Brandon Flowers (he likes U2!) to going to Las Vegas (he likes frozen custard!), from hoping he’d do a solo album, to throwing a party when he did, to the start of a weekly Flowers Friday post. It’s almost sweet to see me go from besotted to Stalker in only two short years 😉
There’s been some craziness along the way, a whole lot of money spent, a whole lot of sleep lost and miles traveled – but it has all been more than worth it. In November Sarah and I will get to see them (for only the second time!! That seems impossible!) at Orlando Calling along with many of the amazing friends I’ve made since falling in love with this band – and this man – who pretty much had me eating out of the palm of his hand the second he walked on to that stage in Boston.
