Rascal Flatts (10/26/12)

A few weeks ago, Rascal Flatts came to town. Their shows always crack me up... I've seen them several times, so I know what to expect, etc.

It was a super fun night!

Eden's Edge was the first opener for them. We didn't see them when they performed on stage, but we did get a private show.... 

Eden's Edge and I

We got to spend time with Eli Young Band and Little Big Town, too. I did get a picture with LBT, but I haven't received it, yet :/

Record rep and friend, S and I

During Eli Young Band's set, we got to watch from the wings.....

Such a cool view!

Personally, Little Big Town's performance was my favorite of the night :)

Monday Musings

I'm pretty sure that Shaun T from Insanity is either married to or having an affair with Tanya. She is in every video and he always focuses on her at least once during the workout.


Also, I think that Chris on the Insanity videos is a paid actor. During the Plyometrics video, he looks overly exhausted. Like, during the warm-up.

I mean, I know they all get paid, but they are paid fitness professionals. I think he gets paid to act really, really tired. I'm not even struggling that bad that soon.


Hearing people chew drives me insane.

Over the weekend, various loud chewers almost drove me to violence.

Worse than chips are when someone is eating a sandwich or a piece of pizza. You know something with bread and cheese that they have to move their mouth more to chew.

I'm still trying to find a polite way to ask people to chew more quietly.


I saw Breaking Dawn 2 Thursday night at 10pm.

O. M. G.

I almost had a panic attack. I read the books, I know what happens.

I was literally yelling at the screen (and I wasn't the only one... the whole theatre was freaking out), "WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?!?!?!?!?!"


Taylor Swift's new album 'Red'??

I may or may not have listened to it exclusively for three weeks straight.


HOW is Thanksgiving this week? HOW?!


My sister and BIL are in town for Thanksgiving (and our family cruise!!).

It is insane.

My BIL and my cousin's husband Mike are two of the loudest people you will ever meet in your entire life. Plus, my sister talks more than anyone I know... and, really, really fast.

I love them all, but my head spins when they are in the same room together, lol.


I'm devastated that Target didn't bring back the Crazy Target Lady.

Like, really, really sad about it.

So, in remembrance....

On My Soapbox (for a minute).....

In case anyone forgot, there was an election this week.

As I have political opinions, but rarely discuss them, I actually had a fun election post planned, but then got busy and didn't have time to post it.

For the record? My votes would have gone to Damon Salvatore and Wade Kinsella.


I was all excited that all the political ads.... all the FB arguing.... all the pettiness would be done once the election was over.

A big fat HA!

I think it's actually gotten worse over the past few days. In fact, one of my coworkers.... who proudly voted for Obama.... has been in a seriously foul mood all week. Any time she's asked about what's wrong, she starts to go off on people who voted for Romney.

I've seen multiple people get defriended over statuses. I've seen people get into "raised voice discussions." I've seen downright nastiness, from both sides.

So, here are my rather pointed thoughts on all of this craziness........

Anyone, regardless of side or affiliation, who is willing to lose a friendship over all of this is a blasted idiot.

 The fact is that neither the man that won nor the man that lost cares about any of us, personally. Neither will be willing to comfort any of us when we have a bad day or celebrate with us when we have a victory. Neither is going to remember our birthdays (or let FB remember). They aren't going to comment on our blogs or pay attention to our Instagram pictures or respond when we have some sort of crisis that only Twitter can solve.

They are two men and when it comes down to it, none of us individually matter to them.

Neither of them are willing to give up their friends for me, so why in the world would I be willing to give up a friendship for them?

I have a lot of friends that have said things that I 100% disagree with... And, by their posts, mean that they think I am all sorts of awful. However, those same friends have been there for me in the good, the bad, and the absolute tragic. I will remember that long after this administration has outlived its term and people are bitching about the next one.

Ok, I am off my soapbox now....

The winners I care about most...

I'm watching the CMAs and I am absolutely giddy.

Not because of the performances, though they are good........

Not because of the clothes, though they are (mostly) gorgeous........

Not because of the artists who won, though I've been happy about most of them....


I am giddy because MY station was recognized. If you blinked, you would've missed it. But, we were recognized and it was amazing.
