The eighty-seventh and eighty-eighth days combined...

Sunday, June 21, 2009
My man and I had gone to see Ledisi in concert awhile ago. I didn't really know many of her songs prior to attending, but my man is a fan and it was my b-day gift to him. I ended up enjoying myself, even though her music is very jazzy and she tends to scat a lot in her songs. Scatting tends to bother me a bit :)

She was a great performer though. She kept the audience laughing and singing throughout the whole show.

It was a great night. I love going to smaller concerts like that :)

In other news, I was tagged by jeanette over at Cooler Ranch or Nacho Cheese? (excellent blog title, btw) for the Honest Scrap Award. Thanks jeanette :) This is a pretty cool award.

The rules:

1) tell your readers 10 things about you that are true, that they might not know; and 2) tag 10 other bloggers to do the same

Here we go:

1) It makes me happy when I am able to make people laugh, whether it be with weird stories, impressions, corny jokes, or silly faces and gestures;
2) I love baking – especially cakes, pies, and cupcakes – and making soups;
3) I watch way too much TV for my own good;
4) I am excellent at finding deals, especially on clothes and accessories;
5) I am a movie nut and believe that Netflix is one of the best services ever created;
6) I think beagles are adorable and would love to have one someday;
7) The Week is one of my favorite magazines. I get all the news without having to get newsprint all over my hands;
8) I absolutely hated carrying a purse when I was growing up (I always carried a mini-backpack), but I now love ‘em and own way too many;
9) I have always wanted to own a pickup truck (yes, even before Twilight); and
10) I can’t get enough of older TV shows (Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, The Golden Girls, Designing Women, etc.)

My 10 tags:
1) Moonjava @ Moonjava's Muse
2) Optimistic Pessimist @ The Audacity of an Optimistic Pessimist
3) Amy @ wAxyhearts
4) Haley Dawn @ Cape Cod Love
5) Novelista Barista @ The Novelista Barista
6) kate @ PaperTrail
7) Kimberly @ My Wooden Heart
8) Badass Geek @ The Badass Geek
9) Be One With the Fro @ Caress the Fro
10) K @ J & K, A Journey

Have a great night!

for the love of pictures

Hey Aimee :) Thanks :) I hear you. It's so easy to splurge on purses - sometimes a little too easy.

Have a great week!

Children of the 90s

Concert looks like fun! I'm not a huge jazz fan, but it looks like she had the crowd going :)

for the love of pictures

Hey Children :) The location was too small for the amount of people there but it did end up being a lot of fun.

Have a great afternoon!


Thanks for checking me out! And I LOVE the Week. Best magazine ever. I love it when a newstory can be summed up in about two sentences. ;)

for the love of pictures

Hey Lola :) Not too many people seemed to know about The Week when I first started getting it, but I've been hearing about it a lot more recently. People love condensed news :)

Have a great day!


Thanks for the award! I am working on my 10 things now... :-)

for the love of pictures

Hey Amy :) You are very welcome! I look forward to reading your list.

Have a great night!


Thanks for the compliment on blog titles. Also I love making people laugh too! Baking not so much, I agree with pretty much everything else as well but can't keep scrolling back and forth haha.

Golden Girls is my next purchase!

for the love of pictures

Hey jeanette :) You are very welcome. I might pick up the Golden Girls DVDs eventually. I'm always trying to catch the reruns on TV. I might as well make it easy on myself and just buy them :)

Enjoy the rest of the night!

Badass Geek

Hey, thanks!

You want a pickup truck? I've got one I'd be willing to let go for cheap.

for the love of pictures

Hey Badass :) You're welcome!

Haha, unless cheap means free, it's still to expensive for me right now :)

Have a great day!


Thanks for the award hon! :) And I'm a shopping deals type of person too!

for the love of pictures

Hey Moonjava :) You're very welcome! Finding a deal when you're out shopping is such a great feeling - even if you don't end up buying anything it always feels good to have found a deal :)

Have a great day!


Thank you for the award! I would have to agree with you about many of your truths: purses (buy too many), TV (love to watch it), and old TV shows are my absolute fave! Love your blog!

for the love of pictures

Hey K :) Thank you, and you are very welcome :) Your blog is great, and you deserve it.

Have a wonderful day!
