If you know me at all... or at least if you've known me long enough, you know that my favoritest artist is Steven Curtis Chapman. I know. He's an old fogey. :oP But he does have great, new material! (He also just became a grandpa!)
I believe this is my... 6th.. ish SCC concert? :] I've lost track. haha. I had to look at his discography to count the CDs that had tours that I went to. :oP There was one concert I have no recollection of but I had bought a very expensive t-shirt... so I must've went right?
This, I believe, was also my anniversary present. :oP
Anyway... my husband is now my mandatory willing concert mate, and my old pal (from 6th grade, holla!) Courtney visited that weekend, so she went to the concert with us too! It was in a random town an hour southwest in Shrewsbury, MA.
We got there kinda late so we got stuck behind this giant black screen by the sound booth. BOO.
SCC opened. OPENED with his openers and basically played alongside the whole concert. LOVE that format. It was really casual and fun and great. :D
Andrew Peterson --- sings high. Very high.
Josh Wilson --- pretty snazzy on that git-tar
It was a great time. :D However, he mostly just played... through the years... which is mostly fun I think if you've been along for the ride through the years. I enjoyed it but it also "sounded" like the past few concerts of his I've been to. A little more so this time since his latest CD is most remixes of his older tunes plus like 3 new songs (which he did 2 of at this concert). (See the uuuuugly black screen that was in our way?? We couldn't see when we sat.)
We went to Costco the next day. :D
All in all, it was a fun time and I will probably go to more concerts out of love and loyalty. :oP But I may require some more new material next time, SCC! ;]
So we got baby Jade (or her parents?) a ducky hooded bath towel plus these onesies I made. :) They were all iron ons like from here!
Her daddy's a med student and her mommy's a nurse practicioner. Appropriate, I'd say. :D
Her daddy had taken to calling her Katana (as in the Japanese sword) :D
This one is slightly like a previous one for Nevan but makes more sense now! As in soccer + jersey makes a little more sense than a ducky + jersey. o_O ALSO, her parents both played a lot of soccer when they were younger!
I also made them this print and put it in a white frame. To go with the ninja theme. :D
This was too much fun. Common'. Someone else have a kid! And... go! ;]
HELLO! I have not been blogging not by choice! Our wireless went poops (needed a reset) but our landlords (who share their internets with us) had just left for a week in Europe! I had to like read books... do crafts... have conversation... Man! But they've returned and apparently, reset their router so I have internet now. :D For some reason it worked on my laptop but not Tim's computer the first day and then for the following 6 days, it worked on Tim's computer but not mine. :( So I got to check my mail and use the internet (also, thank goodness for smartphones!) but didn't really have the time or my pictures to blog!
Hopefully with the Thanksgiving holiday coming up (yay!) I can catch up! :]
So I've dabbled with Groupons, Living Social, and now Google Offers! There was some article that came out a cople weeks ago that said these "coupons" weren't actually as big a discount as they sometimes tout! One instance was a "Groupon" for a cleaning company that claimed it was 75% off, but then when the reporter or person called the cleaning company for a regular inquiry, the "Groupon" was really only a 30% discount. (Or something like that.) I haven't bought too many --- a few for restuarants we usually go to or restuarants/adventures we've been wanting to try.
Anyway. A few months back, I saw a Groupon for a Charles River Cruise and picked up two for the in-laws visiting in August. However, turns out they had plans and didn't really have time to use them! So about a week before they expired, Tim and I went on a cruise on the Charles. :]
As you can see... it was fun and scenic, but not very exciting. :oP
The tour guide lady says this is the only place where a plane can fly over a car driving over a train that's going over a boat. :] Neato.
