November Already!

Can you believe that we are already headed towards the end of another year?!  This year has flown by and November is shaping up to be a pretty busy month, so I thought I'd share some of the exciting things going on.  This Friday Donnie and I will head to Baltimore to see Andrew McMahon, which I previously mentioned in this post.  It's been awhile since we've been to a show, mostly because we are too tired to deal with crowds and long drives and staying out late.  We used to love seeing bands, but alas, we are getting old!  This venue has some seats, probably for parents, but that is where you will find me for the show!
The most exciting thing about this month is Thanksgiving.  Turkey and stuffing are pretty darn awesome, but I'm referring to where we are spending the holiday.  We are headed to Florida and are spending the holiday with my brother and his family.  I cannot even begin to express how thrilled I am.  I've been counting down the days for the last month and a half!  I had such a great time on my last visit and just seriously love spending time with my brother and sister in law.  And did I mention that we will be taking the boys to Disney World?!  I think Donnie is probably most excited about that.  It is the most magical place on earth, after all.
And finally, I have something exciting coming up in December that I will be spending all of my free time working on.  I am doing my very first craft show, Handmade Arcade!  I applied back in September and didn't really expect to get in, so I was pretty surprised when I got the acceptance email.  I actually asked Heidi if she somehow pulled some strings to get me in!  She assured me that she had nothing to do with it. She is going to be coming along to help me and has been such a tremendous support, along with Jessee.  I text them fairly frequently with questions and ideas.  Thanks, gals!  I'm completely nervous, but super excited!  If you live nearby, please come see me!!  Here is the info-

Put A Bird On It

I'm pretty sure I did a bird related post previously.  I really like birds, though, so here is another!  Happy Election Day to my fellow Americans.  I hope you've done your homework, educated yourself, and are voting today!

Musical Monday

I was pretty amazed by T-Pain's voice and musical skills on this video.  For those who aren't familiar, T-Pain is an artist who is pretty well known for his use of auto tune.  This video is like T-Pain unplugged and it's pretty darn good!  I love NPR Tiny Desk Concerts, because they are so intimate and are a great way to discover new artists or watch your favorites play stripped down live versions of their songs.  You can check out others here.
