Mishmash Post

I've been missing again.   It's been unintentional.  Last time I blogged, it was Lola's birthday.  I never got her to fully cooperate with the birthday flag photo on Friday...


Our day didn't go quite as planned.  My granddad got very sick and I rushed to Nocona to be with my grandmother at the hospital for a few hours.  Then I came back late on Friday night because I had a busy weekend planned.

My friend Abby came to town on Saturday.  I picked her up at the airport at 10, and then we started the fun...

We shopped
We ate
We looked at an awesome new house my uncle just bought
We had a "party" for Lola's birthday
We went to the House of Blues to see Ryan Star

One place we shopped was Swoozies.  I was thrilled to finally find a cute shell for my ipad.  It's been dang near impossible to find one for the ipad 2, so since the ipad 3 is about to come out, it makes sense that there is now a case for the 2, right?  Anyway, I couldn't be happier with my Lilly shell...


Lola finally got to open her birthday presents...

New bones are always a hit...
This piglet was a huge hit as well...

We have got the concert at the House of Blues process down folks.  We used the things we learned at the HoB in Houston a couple of years ago and parlayed that into a seamless evening.  We rolled in, valet parked (it was raining & cold), ate dinner there (surprisingly very good), got escorted through the crowd and line with a giant bouncer yelling, "make way, create a big hole, coming through", and got to completely skip the line and go right in so we could get a spot up front.  I'll spare you 75 photos, but here are a few...
There was a non-shadowy photo, but I liked this one better, so ignore the shadow please...

Oh, and I wanted to also tell you about the exciting freebie I managed to pick up.  Due to the upcoming move, my uncle and his wife are doing a major clean-out of their house.  His wife noted that she wasn't using her desktop anymore since she got a new laptop and that she was going to give it to the cleaning lady.  Luckily, my uncle and I had just had a conversation about my sad computers, so he called dibs for me!  Meet my new Mac...

I haven't used a Mac since 1998, so I'm having to re-learn it all again, but this is the very first blog post on the "new" machine!

Since this is a mishmash of the last week, I'll include the fact that it hit 80 degrees this week.  Everything thinks its spring and the snap dragons that I've had in a pot since October are loving life...

Finally, today is Oscars day.  I'm excited, but I'm afraid "The Artist" is going to take a lot of awards.  I'm kind of bummed about that.  It may be very good.  I haven't seen it, so I don't know.  But I have the belief that it's just a gimmick.  George Clooney deserves an Oscar, a gimmick movie does not.  But it will be a great night of fashion and I couldn't be happier that Billy Crystal is back!
