Confess by Colleen Hoover

From Goodreads: Auburn Reed has her entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic artist who works there, Owen Gentry.

For once, Auburn takes a risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover Owen is keeping major secrets from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.

The last thing Owen wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin.

What I thought: I knew I was in trouble when I was starting to cry before the first chapter was over. Confess is one of those novels that just hits you right in the heart from the get go and you just know it's special.

I loved the entire story line. There were little secrets throughout that kept the story moving and kept you wondering about how every thing tied together until the very end.

There were characters I loved and hated. Obviously I loved Auburn and Owen, but I also really loved Auburn's roommate Emory (hey Colleen Hoover, can she get a book??) and Owen's bartender friend Harrison. I won't tell you who I hated, you should read the book. But I think you'll figure it out really quick.

Confess is both heartbreaking and hopeful and it's one of those books that you'll find yourself crying over and smiling over. And I promise by the end you're not going to want to let Auburn and Owen go. I still miss them.

Maroon 5 2015 Tour

Iz and I had Monday off to go see Maroon 5 and we wanted to make a whole evening of it. I've been trying to make sure we have days off together from time to time and when we do I want to have fun!

After the gym and drinking coffee and getting ready for the day we took a few pics and then headed out. I chose to wear all black for the concert and felt comfortable but pretty chic as well!

We had dinner at Burger Moe's in St. Paul. It was a pretty neat place with a fun menu! The service was a little slow but luckily we had lots of time, so it wasn't the end of the world. And the food totally made up for it!

I had the Cowboy Bison Burger (I love bison, yum!) and Izzy got the Denny Burger (friend egg and all). And I had to get a chocolate shake too, which was so yummy!

After dinner we headed over to the Xcel Center! I like to get to concerts early because it's fun to people watch and just sit and hang out. And I wanted a t-shirt too!

The concert itself was so great. The opening acts were Rozzi Crane (Adam's protege from The Voice) and Magic!. I didn't know a lot about Rozzi but she put on a great show and even came out to sing Christina Aguilera's part in Moves Like Jagger later on.

Magic! was okay. They put on a good performance but it's not totally my style of music. Still, they were entertaining and that's the most important part.

Maroon 5 was of course amazing. They put on such a good show and you can just tell how much they appreciate their fans. I also love that the last few concerts they've had they do a mix of songs from ALL their albums. They did maybe 4 songs from their current album but they also played all the past favorites as well. 

Every time I go to one of their concerts I think to myself "there's a reason they're my favorite band." Their music is just AMAZING and it just hits my heart. 

The funniest part of the concert was the three women in front of us. They were obviously drunk (one moreso than the other two) and they were dancing and flailing like 12 years old pretending to be pop stars in their bedrooms. The really drunk one hit the guy next to us in a very sensitive area a few times (luckily he and his wife thought it was just as funny as we did). I just have to say that yes it's fun to drink and let loose. But you don't need to make a fool of yourself either. Still, we found it entertaining.

All in all an amazing concert. I can't wait to see them again!
