Taylor Swift is Starting Our Summer (GIVEAWAY)

*This is a sponsored post but keep reading because you can win Taylor Swift concert tickets!!

As we are headed into the last week of the school year, I’m being pulled in every different direction. Thank you notes for the teachers, end of year class gift money due, summer sports have already begun, family visits to plan, camps to prepare for and summer trips to finalize. With all the chaos, I’m trying to take it all in stride because I’m actually looking forward to summer with the kids.

We only get 18 summers to spend with our kids before they head off to college and leave us with an empty nest. With a daughter going turning 11 next year and on the cusp of being a teenager, I plan to make the most of all the every day moments with my kids. Not just the special vacation and holiday moments, but the every day trips to the pool, afternoons on the slip n slide and outdoor movie nights.

I plan to work less and spend more time with the kids this summer. Yes, even me who works 7 days a week plans to take it easy and enjoy more family time. More trips to grab ice cream, extra time at the pool, more visits to the park. While all these everyday moments will be great, I plan to kick the summer off in a big way with Taylor Swift. Yep, we are starting summer with THE Taylor Swift. We are headed to Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour concert next week!

My daughter, her best friend, one of my bests and I are all headed to watch Swifty belt out some of our favorite songs. Talk about creating special moments with my daughter! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that I’m letting her best friend come along which most definitely makes me Best. Mom. Ever.

Taylor Swift

How is this all happening? Well, we have American Express to thank for this! AMEX has launched the Amex EveryDay Credit Card to help us make the most of special moments in our lives. With the Amex EveryDay Card, multitasks (like us moms!) are rewarded for everyday purchases! For every 20 transactions a month card users receive 20% rewards with no annual fee.

Whether they are sending us to the concert or now, I can honestly tell you that I have been an Amex card member for over a decade and use my card for all those special moments like ice cream shop visits, pool supplies and family vacations. It’s never let me down!
