It has been 366 days since this happened, but who’s counting? It turned into a majorish project for us. We’re still working, but we hit a major milestone tonight. We’ve been to a home improvement store six times in three days. This project WILL get finished this week.
We have been season ticket holders for several years to the ASO. Over the years, we have decreased the number of shows we go to. We also switched from certain tickets to passes to any show. I have always enjoyed the shows. Samantha even went with me once last season and she loved it too!
However, on Friday night, I went to one of the best shows. The Indigo Girls were in town. Their music was arranged for an orchestra, and they played together. It was amazing! I have been a fan for a long time (but haven’t followed their career in the last 15 years or so…shame on me). They played a few new songs, but mostly it was oldie goldies that I knew. Brian didn’t want to go (which saved on babysitting) and I just wanted a night to myself, so I went alone. Strangely enough, that was in keeping with my trips to the Alabama Theatre.
This picture is horrible, but I don’t want to post my video. My seat was good, although because it wasn’t sold out, it could have been better. I asked to sit in the mezzanine, but it was farther back (even though I was on the first row) than I would have liked. Oh well.
I did about lose it just before the show started though. I tweeted that I was there and none other than Erin Cobb replied to my tweet! I am a HUGE fan of her work, (I mean, have you SEEN it?) and how could she even know that I exist? I about died. I have been reading her blog for almost 5 years. I was on maternity leave with Sam, and she just had her son too. It made my night even that much better. Sadly, she wanted to come but missed the show. I would have gladly given her one of my tickets if I would have known!
Samantha has spent this summer at Ellie’s daycare, but today was the first day of 4K back at Prince of Peace. Here is last year’s picture.
At school these days, if Samantha gets a smiley face every day, she gets a “treasure box” on Fridays. This week, she picked a pad of paper.
She came home and drew all over the papers, taking the bunny to a vegetable patch, and a flower patch. Then she started making lists. She made a list of what she wanted for breakfast. It was butter, eggs, milk (we get 1% milk at Publix, which is purple), and sprinkles to make pancakes. She also made a list for the grocery store: pizza, apples, and pears.
