If any of you remember I had my 3?th birthday back in August. The kids got me tickets to see Jason Mraz. Haley also proceeded to buy her and JT(Haley's boyfriend) tickets. That way she could bless us with time to spend with them. She is thoughtful that way. Of course let me inform you that she put the tickets on our credit card.
I recieved the tickets back in August....put them in the cabinet and forgot about them....until Haley informed me that JT had decided last minute to go to Mexico with his family. I knew Haley would find someone to go to the concert with us. Haley and her friends LOVE live music. Getting rid of the ticket was the easy part......finding a sitter put me into full panic mode. Made a few phone calls and no one was available to do it. I was in a real pickle here people. I called my very sweet neighbor, Pam Wyma, and kindly asked if she would be available to babysit Bradley until Asher got home from work. If any of you were wondering....that's why Asher couldn't go to the concert....he is gettting all grown up and has a job. Pam said they could watch Bradley. I have two things that I felt when Pam said "yes." The first thing...relief. WOO-HOO. I'm going to the concert......I'm going to the concert. The second thing was how happy I was that I have someone like Pam in my life. She is such a lovely woman. If any of you are blessed to know her, you are a lucky person.
Anyway.....off to the concert we go. It was AWESOME!!! Jason (yes we are on a first name basis) played at the Aragon Ballroom. What an amazing venue to watch a concert.....not a bad seat in the house. We were on the main floor and had to stand. When you are dancing you don't really need a seat.
Needless to say, Haley knew a bunch of people there and she ditched us to be with her friends. Can you believe that?? The audacity of teenagers.
After the concert Bill and I went to a bar to have a drink.....needless to say, we didn't know we went into a gay bar. Had tons of fun...will tell everyone about that in the next post. Sorry all...it is two days before Thanksgiving and I just don't have time for that FUNNNNNY story.
I promise....the next post. Hopefully I will have some pics of the concert by then.

This is my first attempt at a holiday banner. Not the best picture but hey this is suppose to be a casual, laid back blog for casual and laid people. I think next time I need to make the letters bigger. Hey, we LIVE and we LEARN. Thank goodness I'm just talking about the HOLIDAY banner~
This is a close up picture. Again, think I need to do it again. However, it was fun making it. It doesn't take long at all to make.
At this stage in my life nothing can take too long. I have lots of things on my plate right now.
I was talking to my sweet friend, SHELBY, today and I mentioned that I just don't feel like I have enough time in the day to spend some time with GOD praying. Then I realized how WEIRD that sounds. I sound so full of myself. I declare that this holiday season that I am actually going to attempt to slow down. CRAZY thought right??? I am going to try realllly HARD to focus on other~

This is what my kitchen table looks like. What a mess....I'm getting to it....I'm getting to it....I HOPE! As you can see my laptop is there waiting for me to blog. I've been trying to get to it all day. FINALLY I'm here...yeah!!
This would be the kitchen sink. My sink very rarely looks like this....honestly! It is now empty and I feel so much better. I'm telling you...it's the little things that I love so much! I know sometimes your looks like this too. I hope it does...I'm just going to keep telling myself that to make me feel better.

Last but not least....my mixer. One of my conveniences that I have removed from the pantry and plopped on my counter. Why you ask (OK, even if you didn't ask I'm going to tell you).......it reminds me to make delicious surprises for my family. They LOVE all the cookies, cakes & cupcakes that start in this mixer. It reminds me that cooking from scratch reaches their PRECIOUS souls. It makes them happy....which in turn makes me happy!

This holiday is a bit much for Stitch. The doorbell....the kids.....it's all a bit overwhelming for him. He didn't move from this spot from 3-6:30. I had to keep him locked in the kitchen. He has a very big bark. I didn't want him to scare the kids. He is able to love on a child so much that he can lick them to death. Maybe next year I will have Bill bring him trick-or-treating. It would sure make my head feel a lot better.
Usually every Halloween I sit down in between trick-or-treaters and I do my Christmas cards. However, this year I helped Bill's office with the annual Thanksgiving cards (800 to be exact). I brought them home from the office to finish up. I made Bill sit and help me. He just kept watching me....it's was a bit bothersome. Hey Bill...next time...note to self....don't watch Amy work. She will get a tad upset and put you to work. Hope he doesn't remember that next year. Now I have to find time to do our Christmas cards.
