I Met Carrie Underwood

Hey y'all! Today, I'm going to share all about when I met Carrie Underwood! I'm a storyteller so I'll just break down the whole down the whole experience and walk you through it. I know many people were interested in the details and I also just really want to document it. My blog is like my digital scrapbook of sorts and I don't want to forget a thing!

First of all, I was invited to a Calia by Carrie shopping event at my local Dick's Sporting Goods. I was able to bring a friend so my awesome friend Pam got to join me! When we arrived at Dick's Sporting Goods, we were told that we could pick out a top, bottom, bra, layering piece, and an accessory from the Calia by Carrie line! We had the best time shopping the collection and trying on the clothes. It was an interesting shopping experience to have photographers snapping pictures of you while you shopping. I kind of felt like a celebrity! I had had never tried any of this line previously but I was really impressed by the quality and the fit. I picked a blush pink seamless tank, lace detail leggings, a blush pink strappy sports bra, and fitted black jacket from the Calia by Carrie collection!

After we shopped, we quickly changed into our new workout gear and were escorted to the Greensboro Coliseum for a workout with Carrie Underwood's personal trainer, Eve Overland. Being escorted to the coliseum was a surprise and definitely built up the excited for the event even more.

When we got to there, we put away all of our belongings, including our cell phones. We were treated to snacks and drinks while we stretched and prepared for our workout. Some of the team from Calia by Carrie walked through our outfits and shared more about the pieces that we had selected. The room setup was really nice and the stage background was beautiful! But, we did notice right away that there were two workout mats setup on the stage, instead of just one for Eve so we were getting suspicious at that point that there would be someone else working out with us.

Eve Overland came out and introduced herself. She talked about her job and some of the workouts that she has been doing with Carrie. And then... from behind the curtain... Carrie Underwood comes out! She said, "y'all are stealing my trainer!" Most of the room was pretty star struck and couldn't believe that she was actually in the room with us. She was dressed in her Calia by Carrie workout gear and told us she was going to workout with us! But first, we took pictures:

It was crazy and surreal to be working out with Carrie Underwood! Meeting her was cool in itself but actually getting the chance to do a workout with her was so neat. I have always been a fan of Carrie Underwood since the American Idol days. She's kind, beautiful, and so talented! At the end of the workout, we took some group photos and then she gifted us tickets to see her concert the next night!

As you can see in the photo above (that Carrie Underwood posted on her Instagram page), I was super excited! I absolutely love concerts, especially country concerts!

After our workout, we headed back to Dick's Sporting Goods to get my car and then we had to go back to real life. The morning kind of felt like a dream because it was such a cool experience! I have had so many people ask me how I got this opportunity and how I was invited. Well, I'm not exactly sure how I got this invitation but I would assume it's because of my blog and Instagram. Most of the other ladies at this event were Carrie Underwood super fans and another one of my blogger friends (Emily from Life with Emily) was there, too.

Pam and I had the best time at the concert! This was Pam's first country concert experience and it was definitely a good one. The show was amazing! Everything about it was done with excellence!

It was just super fun watching Carrie perform after just meeting her the day before. And yes, I definitely did tell pretty much everyone around us that we just worked out with her! I didn't share to brag, I shared because I still couldn't believe it! Haha! So surreal. I am super grateful for such an amazing experience and one that I will always remember!
