So me and Kelli went to the Secondhand Serenade concert last night. Funny thing is, we didn't even watch Secondhand Serenade.
Okay, so let me start over. Kelli and I bought tickets for Secondhand Serenade a couple months ago for early entry into the park. We got to Thanksgiving Point super early yesterday and were like the third people in "early" line. It was awesome. Anyway, after sitting for a couple hours we FINALLY got in and were right in the front. That was also awesome. Until we got mauled by sweaty people. Seriously, I was drenched in sweat...and it probably wasn't even my own. That wasn't so awesome.

First up was a band called Single File. Never heard of them before.

Next up was We Shot the Moon. They were very very good.

Parachute came on next and OH MY GOODNESS...they were AMAZING. They seriously rocked! I'm pretty much in love.



Right after they were through performing, I tapped the security guy on the shoulder and asked him kindly if he would get me out of here. I did not even care that I would be missing Secondhand Serenade. I hadn't come to listen to him anyway. Kelli and I jumped the fence with the assistance of Mr. Security Guard, ran back to Parachute's merch table, bought a cd and waited patiently in line for them. I about passed out when they showed up. And then I about had a heart attack when it was finally our turn for autographs and pictures :] They were super sweet and nice and lovely and wonderful.



I squealed the whole way home. Yes, squealed.


Pretty much it was the best night ever.

this calls for cake and ice cream, right?!

So yesterday was my blog's first birthday! I just realized that. Its been a pretty lame year, huh? I mean, what, like 50-some-odd posts over the course of one year? Most people have that many in like a few months!

ANYWAY, here is little update of the past month (in no particular order)....

I received news of Andy's release date. DECEMBER 17TH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ran my second race ever ( first one being my marathon) and got second place out of the girls. Anyway, I received a nice little gift certificate to Striders. And trust me, it is going to come in handy. I'm wayyy overdue for some new running shoes. Like so overdue its bad, real bad. Like probably a good 1,000 miles overdue. No joke.

I went on a picnic up in the Uintahs.

I went to a movie with my longtime childhood friend who I hadn't really seen since she got married! We saw My Sisters Keeper. And I think I was either teared up or crying during the entire movie.

I got some nice vintage items at some estate sales. Like a really cute wicker picnic basket complete with plates, cups and utensils.

I watched fireworks on the fourth of July by myself.

I bought a serger so I could make more aprons.

I bought more fabric to make more quilts.

I registered for school and forked out around $700 just for books and modules (Ah, I still want to cry when I think about it...the money AND starting school).

I took an online class from Miss Kara. She's awesome and inspiring. And she's only 17. It was a music art journaling class and it rocked. It made me happy. I'm still working on it (more photos on flickr).

I went to Public Enemies with Jacki. Mmmm...Johnny Depp is uh...awesome. :]

I've been keeping an eye on the demolition of my high school. Its kind of sad when you think about it. :[ KelliPirelli has a nice little post about it here.

And I've been trying to catch up on the Harry Potter movies. I tried watching the first one when it came out a few years ago and I hated it so I just never watched any of them. I am still not a huge fan of the first movie...but each movie seems to get better. I just finished the fourth one this afternoon. I almost cried when mean Cedric died (umm...does anyone else think that Rob looks better as Cedric than he does as Edward...?) That was very sad. I'm a huge fan of Ron. He is my favorite by far.

Well thats about it. Maybe my next year on blogger will be filled with more posts. and maybe my summer will get more exciting. but probably not.
