For you musical lovers out there...

Get the soundtrack...really. Right now...I will wait ;)
My friend Shelly invited me along to see Wicked on Friday and OHMYGOODNESS was it good. It is so well done, so entertaining, so funny, so sad, everything a musical should be. The added bonus of the night? The actor who played Dr. Dillamond previously played Mr. Trick on Buffy the Vampire Slayer...yes, one of my all time favorite shows :)

Still no internet on my computer so here's a Flashback Friday picture from Bj's computer, inspired by the beautiful wedding picture on Michelle's blog

Bj's grandparents, William and Claire Back. Aren't they just the most handsome couple you ever did see?

So tonight I was going to be productive. Going to get stuff done that I have needed to do FOREVER. Going to get caught up. But alas, it didn't work. No internet on my computer. Something screwy with our portable drive so no access to pictures and no way to get pictures off my camera. So here is a list of things that I would have done.
1. Post my new Summer banner for my blog.
2. Actually participate in Sassy Shoe Thursday.
3. Post all of the stuff I have been scrapping but too lazy to scan and post on 2peas (and yep, it is a lot)
4. Upload pictures to
5. Post a super cute picture of Lily sleeping like a frog.

So blog readers (and lurkers...Kenny ;) come back soon and I promise for some new and exciting pictures, and maybe me in a better mood :P

Choir, a thank you and a 10 month birthday.

I went to choir last night. My old choir. The one I went to Italy with. The one Doc directs. Wow I really needed that. Is there something that you do that just seems to heal you? Something that makes you want to mouth thank you to your friend across the stage in the alto section for dragging you to rehearsal? For those of you who have kiddos out there, I highly recommend getting them interested in choir. Really. OK so maybe it is not the coolest thing they will ever do. But maybe, just maybe they will love it. Maybe, just maybe they will want to do it for the rest of their lives. I am not talking about being a professional musician or teaching music, (although I recommend that as well) but maybe just maybe they will always be part of music in some way. I may direct a choir, and I LOVE doing it, but it is just not the same feeling. I direct a choir for my members. For the audience. I sing in a choir for me. The warm-ups. The sightreading. The sound of the guys. The blend of your voice with the girl next to you. And yes, even the high Bb that I haven’t attempted in a year. I love it all. So thanks Jenya for making me go. I needed that.

What else is happening? My lovely little baby is growing up. Fast. Lillian is 10 months old today. I can’t believe it. This time has gone so fast. So for old times sake, here is a list of 10 things that she does that makes her Lily.
1. She has a cute crawl where she pulls with her arms and kicks her legs really, really, really fast.
2. She loves climbing all over me and loves it when I help her stand up.
3. She always eats her puffs with her right hand, but first she picks one puff up in her left hand and holds it there until she is done. Kinda gross, but very cute.
4. She still doesn’t have any teeth.
5. She kicks her legs and claps her feet and pants when she is happy.
6. It is impossible to change her diaper.
7. She hides her head when she sees new people (OH I love that!)
8. She holds onto the tray of her high chair and flexes her hands before every bite.
9. When I get her dressed and she is holding a toy, she moves the toy to the hand that is not having its sleeve removed (ok I know that is horrible writing, but I just couldn’t figure out how to say that)
10. The first time she went swimming she was scared half to death. The second time she loved it.

I will have pictures later so come back soon!

Trying to change a diaper on a child who has no time to lay still when there are things to look at, explore, and get into. Gave up on the changing table, floor just as bad. I am now EXHAUSTED from changing a 10mos old baby's diaper. Any suggestions?

Just five points away from Katherine? WOW. So close. For the record, I think that I got much higher on math than I should have, and I know that I have more logic than that...I don't necessarily have Bj to rely on for that ;) Do you dare?

Wanna play?

Bj and I were taking a walk around the block a few weeks ago, talking about things and stuff and he suggested a pretty cool idea. He suggested that I made a calendar with some of those crazy ladies I talk about all the time. Yes, he means you bloggin' ladies in cyber space. So the jist is, eleven ladies each sign up for one month and create one page which I would upload to Cafepress and presto, there you go. Except for some size regulations, no rules, no theme, just whatever your cool style is...especially if your style is horizontal inky stips. I LOVE horizontal inky strips :) So what do you think? Anyone game? If so, put what month you want in the comments...first come first serve. And btw, you DO NOT have to be a scrapbooker to sign up...ahem, Katherine ;) *edit* the deadline won't be until November 1. *edit #2...yes it can be digi :)

January: Nadine
February: Rachel
March: Katy...unless you want another one
April: Mi'Chelle (of COURSE I would have you :)
May: Missy
June: Susie
August: ME (cause it's my birthday month...and Lily's too, oh and my mom's...)
October: Michelle D
November: Elizabeth-is this OK?
December: Amber
