She & Him

My Hubby & I recently saw She & Him in concert. They really did a great job & we had a great time. I would highly recommend them as a fun show to see.

One of my favorite games to play at concerts is "How Much Older Am I?" It's so funny because when we go to concerts we have got to be at least five ten years older than our fellow concert goers. Case in point, at this concert my sweet hubby looked over & saw that we were standing right beside his co-worker's son...who is a senior... in high school. Thats right, our daughter is closer in age to the people we enjoyed this show with. To be fair there were some people there that looked to be quite a bit older than us, of course they were there to chaperone their kids, but still. Some might say we need to hang up our concerting shoes, but I just like to think of us as young at heart.

Just in case you're interested, I started a new blog. Please don't think I can't hear you laughing at me. I know what you're thinking "she can't even keep up with one blog, how in the world does she think she will be able to keep up with two?!" I've had the same thoughts, and the truth is I don't know how I'm going to keep up with two, but I figure if I want to have two unused blogs out there in cyberspace I can. The second blog is going to be private so if you'd like to check it out leave me a comment with your email address, and I'll add you to my super exclusive list.   Happy reading!

Funny Sidenote: when I was talking to Chris about starting another blog I told him I was having a hard time naming it. I just wanted it to be something simple and to the point. He didn't really like any of my ideas so he gave me some suggestions & I thought I'd share...

Are you kidding me?

A padded room with a view was my personal favorite :)

Walk on the Beach

We recently went to the beach, and one of my favorite moments from our trip was a walk I took on the beach. I should preface this with the fact that I really love taking walks on the beach. I love the beach in general, and walking down the beach on a beautiful day with the waves crashing and the sun shining is definitely up there on my list of favorite things. This walk, however, may just be my number one. Sure I've had romantic walks in the moonlight, fun walks with friends, & even a couple of walks where somehow a great conversation happened when it was least expected. But this walk was special even in comparison to those moments. What made this walk so special you ask, well I'll tell you. It was my walking partner. My sweet 7 year old & I took an impromtu walk one afternoon, and it ended up being a blog worthy moment (is this how I'm rating moments in my life now...if they're blog worthy? this could be a problem). We ran, jumped, spun, danced (oh that's right there was some robot, moonwalking, and moves that have no name happening on the beach that day) , did cartwheels (he's not so great with the cartwheels, but a lot of laughs were had during the attempts), walked backwards (promising to let the other know if they were going to run into anything...does it make me a bad mother if I accidentally forgot to tell him a time or two?), compared footprints, slid (as into homeplate style), and just had a great, fun time in general. This walk summed up what I love most about that sweet 7 year old. He has such a sweet, fun-loving spirit with an enthusiasm for life that compares to no other. He took an ordinary walk and turned it into a blog worthy moment without even trying. He's just that fun naturally.
