a sara bareilles tunesday

So my love for Sara B. (B for Bareilles, not Beach -although I love you too other Sara) goes pretty far back. This past Friday I was able to see her in concert for the first time at the Roseland and I am pretty sure my love grew even deeper.  Also, did I mention it is a solo-dolo tour right now.  Just her and her instruments up on stage and ermahgerd it was a beautiful, beautiful thing. 

Brad even says we kind of look alike.  I am not sure I see it, but I am definitely not complaining about the comparison. It probably has something to do with the fact that we both make awkward faces: 

Also, I realized after seeing her live we could should be besties. Sara is awkward, entertaining, and curses like a sailor, but in the most adorable way possible.  Who knew the F-word could sound so cute?! She also goes on these really random and long tangents in between songs and you never know where she is going to end up by the end of it. Really keeps you on your toes, (oh toes!) just like I do here on the blog. 

Also, confession, it's hard to tell in the below photo, but my outfit for Mother's Day was more or less a carbon copy of her's at the show. Minus the fantastic black and white oxfords she was rocking. 

I went with my friend Kim and her friend Arlie and we had a blast.  Kim went went way more fan girl than I did.  This was like her 4th time seeing Sara live.  

Anyway, in honor of my love for Sara, I wanted to dedicate this Tunesday to her, enjoy! 

This song is beautiful. The kind of beautiful that gives me chills. 

Tragic and lovely. 

I mean who doesn't love a great Single Ladies cover?! 

She opened with this song on Friday and then moved into Elton John's Benny and the Jets. It was classic. 

Everything about this version makes me happy. 

Cheers to Sara B! 

<3 BB

So. Jealous.
I've loved Sara for some time now and had NO IDEA she was playing in town. I really need to figure out a better way to stay on the live music pulse around here...

I sure hope everyone catches that Friends shoutout, because I'm pretty sure I used a Rachel voice to say, "Oh, TOES!!" in my head.

She is so amazing! Saw her in Houston a couple of years ago and fell in love. She is coming back to Houston and I am going to go even if it is by myself. She was really funny in concert.
