Day Two- University of Wisconsin
Green Bay, Wisconsin – November 29th, 2018
Good morning, Green Bay! This morning started off slow. I woke up around 10 and did some last minute touches to my blogpost and social media. Jesse was still asleep so I decided to leave the room and go to the hotel gym. After about an hour workout, I went back up to the room to shower and get dressed.
Jess had some work to do and still needed to go to the gym, so I decided to have a solo lunch date. I called a Lyft and headed to downtown Green Bay to the Kavarna Coffeehouse. I ate there, but ordered Jesse a salad to go. The coffee was great, the food was… not my favorite.
Back at the hotel I waited for Jess to get ready and did some touch ups to my makeup. My hair was completely helpless. I don’t know how to fight the static and I had more hairspray and water in my hair trying to fight it at this point that I just gave up. Every single door I touch shocks me. Please comment solutions if you have them! Our transportation picked us up and we headed to the University of Wisconsin- Green Bay. I sat on stage while Jesse and Dory did their soundcheck. After that we went to the green room and hung out until it was time for the fan meet and greets. The fans were so excited when Jesse walked in and it stilll always impresses me the level of love and support his fans have for him. Some of them were really shy, others were over the top excited, and one girl even brought Bailey, our dog, toys! I stood off to the side by the door so I wouldn’t be in the way and watched as the girls (and some guys) were coming up with plans as to how they would pass off their purses and coats to each other for their pictures. Jess took his last fan picture and we were back in the green room. Also, peep the event staff t shirts. They were so cute!
The theater doors opened, the opening act performed and then it was showtime. Jess and Dory took the stage and I went out into the audience to do some story posting and live streaming for Jesse’s instagram. It’s more stressful than it sounds. I never know which song to stream! I had some connection trouble with the live and when I finally figured it out it was just in time for “How Do You Sleep” so thats what I streamed. I talked to a few really sweet JMac fans in the audience, that also read my blog so, hi if you’re reading this, and then the moment everyone was waiting for… “Beautiful Soul”. I decided to live stream that as well, that one’s a given. After the show Jesse changed and we went back to the stage, when the audience was gone, to score a few selfies. The theater was so beautiful we had to get some pictures! A student took this one and if my memory is correct his name was Tyler!? Anyways, photo cred- Tyler, maybe.
We packed up the green room, Jess did a few post-show interviews and then we went back to the hotel to drop of our stuff. Now it was time for a glass of wine! Jesse, Dory, and I went to Fox Heights, a bar down the street from the hotel, to meet with some of their colleagues. Jess and I had a glass of red wine, everyone else had beer, and we all had some fun conversation!
It’s midnight now and time to get back to the hotel, because it is definitely time for bed. We have to be awake in 4 hours, FOUR HOURS, to leave for the airport, but I’ll tell you about that tomorrow. Good night, Green Bay.
