Oh Timmy!

Last week I got to go to a Tim McGraw concert here in Cleveland! It was soo much fun. Lady Antebellum opened for them as well as Love & Theft. It was such a good concert. It was on a Thursday night and it was sooo HUMID that night, but it was also so worth it. I LOVE going to country music concerts and events. There are such interesting people that go to them. Sometimes it's just as entertaining to people watch as it is to fully get into the concert. There were a TON of people there. I was amazed by the number of people and yet how quickly we were able to get out of there. Anyways, here's a few pictures:

It was a lot of fun and Tim was AMAZING! And I can't wait to go to Country Jam next month for more and see even more interesting people ;)

Who Knew?

Who knew that getting up at 7:30 on a SATURDAY wasn't so hard? Who knew that you could get so much more done on a Saturday if you woke up before noon? Not I...until today! I've been running about 3 times a week with my friend for a few weeks now. Our schedules were crazy this week, so we decided that we would get up early on Saturday to go running. I got up somewhere around 7:15ish and I was able to run 2 miles, shower, go to 2 different stores, get my oil changed, go to the bank and the post office and make it home all but 11:30! To honest, that's usually when I wake up on Saturdays! I was very impressed with myself, not that I am looking to do this EVERY Saturday. Saturdays are my ONE and ONLY day to sleep in but I did enjoy getting a lot of stuff done early and still have a full day to do other things like....

SEW! I can't believe how many comments I got from my sewing machine, so I thought that I better use it soon so I don't disappoint all of you. Now, don't except great things from me anytime soon, but I did do a few burp cloths. I know a lot of people including my sister that are having girls or just had girls, so I thought this would be something easy to do. Don't look too closely at the stitching! I thought they turned out pretty good. Now it's about 5pm and I have a talk to write!

Yep, that is right; I have a sewing machine. I didn't think this would happen for quite some time, but when I was in Michigan a few months ago, my cousin gave me my Grandma's old sewing machine. I'm pretty excited. I'm not sure what to do with it yet, but I am a little excited to learn. I'm not nearly as a perfectionist as what I was when I tried sewing a few years ago. Hopefully this will all go well. This is a pretty easy machine to use though. Just in the last couple of hours I have been able to learn how to use the automatic threader, the bobbin thing and play around with a lot of the different kinds of stitches. Yes, don't you just LOVE my terminology. I'm sure that it is really called the "bobbin thing" :) Anyways, don't expect great things from me anytime soon, but maybe sometime in the future I can be half as good as my mother and mother in law. Yeah for new toys and trying new things!
