    I first and foremost don't want to get into specific details,but i will give you all a review of the festivites of the day in Plant City,FL.
    I flew into Tampa around 10:30 am Friday morning the day of the Strawberry Festival. This was my 1st solo trip without a parent,as silly as it seems coming from a 31 yr.old. It's very true,i'm rather protected;as i'm an only child. Our story teller and fellow Kellie Fan Gordon,or Gor as many know him by met me outside the airport. Hopped into the rental car and went on our way to the hotel we were all staying at. Along the way though went in the wrong direction,silly Gordon;but that was alright by me actually since it's been awhile that i've seen color and warm weather. It was beautiful. Once we arrived at the hotel to get settled Jessy L. and her family weren't too far behind before they arrived. It was such a pleasure to finally meet Jessy's family,including her little brother Nicholas,what a cutie pie. Once everyone was introduced and settled into each of our seperate rooms,we were off to the festival. There we all met up with Brittany and later in the day Kellie G. We had ourselves a Pickler Party you could say. It was such fun. Jessy had a poster made up for Kellie titled "KELLIE IS OUR SUPERHERO",afterall Kellie is our superhero. Everyone signed the poster for Kel,as it was given to her from Josh,he's one of 5 members of the band.Most of us spent the day just hanging around trying to get a glimpse of Kellie,no such luck until show time that is,and what a show that was. Kellie's a natural professional on stage. She's simply at ease infront of a large crowd. The entire place was full. To be honest i don't think there was an empty seat in the house. Britt and Jessy had meet and greets to see Kel before show time,no such luck for Gor and I,but turned around for us in the end i have to say. The entire set was full of life and color.The band was rockin' the house,let me just say Kellie's band is the bomb when it comes to playing such great music to back up her superb vocals. Kel sang all 4 hit singles including the new single release of "Best Days of Your Life" also including "Makin Me Fall In Love Again" "9 to 5", "Rocks Instead Of Rice", "Lucky Girl" and the new re-released version of "Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You". In typical Kellie fashion talked to the crowd after each song,that girl loves a good gab fest. At one point during the show she encourages the crowd to come closer to the stage and i was all for it,thankfully i was able to get to her the gifts i had for her once the show ended. For one good solid hour i sang along and waved to Kellie as she waves right back to me,she see's the sign Jessy had made and mention that she didn't feel like a superhero. That made Jessy's day feel complete.Oh,but i can't forget to say that Kellie mentions of the video for "Best Days" her best friend Summer just so happens to make a special cameo in the video. Kel told the crowd it was an entire day of filming the video,this was the day before. After show time, Kel comes back to the stage to sign autographs for everyone,i was practically malled and nailed to the front of the stage. It took me a good 5 minutes before i could get her to look down at me with holding the gift bags in the air. She see's me and say's "for me,really"? I said yes,she takes the bags and gives me a single touch of the hand. My night was complete,but that wasn't the end of it actually.Most of the frenzy wild crowd left,but a good bunch of folks just hung around to see if she would come out from her bus. After awhile some folks just gave up and left.Not us Kelliebeans didn't though,although Brittany and KellieG left,they left just a few minutes after Kellie and Summer emerged from the bus. I practically squeezed Summer when we hugged. She's been a terrific friend to me and i can't ever be more greatful for that. The conversation I had with Kellie and Summer was quite personal and private so unfortunately i will not be mentioning it here in my review. The girls loved the gifts i gave them and surely little Bella loves her new toys that i gave to Kel for her beautiful new baby girl. I didn't get an autograph for myself as i was more so wanting one for my little one Nicholas my 3 yr.old cousin who absolutely LOVES Kellie and her "Lucky Girl" song. I told her the story and tells just how cute he is holding her album in the picture. When I brought the autograph home to him,his face lit up a thousand times over. I really made his day. I will simply never forget my lucky day in Plant City,FL. It was such a fabulous time,but went by way too quick. I guess my review was longer than i thought. Apparently Kellie isn't the only one who's the mouth of gab.hahahaha...

    To see Kellie any time is worth it really.hahaha...
    That's too far off actually,most likely i'll end up going to the Charleston,WV show and University Park, PA show in July and August. That's not too far off.:)
    I just can't wait to finally meet with you,i'm ready now for our little road trip.

    Haha, I figured you'd be attending a couple more shows. Wish I could go to the University Park one, but until October I'll just enjoy all the wonderful reviews. :D It's gonna be a fun time, but I know you're gonna have a lot of fun at your other shows too and I'm excited to hear all about them!

    Ah,you're welcome Gor! Surely i didn't get too carried away with my review,infact i could have made it longer with the Josh,Jay and Gregg stuff,but left that out,and i surely didn't want to mention my flight experience. That was horrible.
    It was a fabulous day.
