dave tickets, demo derby and house stuff

Wow! What a time I had last weekend. On Saturday I checked the mail to find not only my business cards, but also my tickets for the DMB concert!!! I am such a dork and was so excited I of course had to take pictures with them!

On Saturday night we headed out with the areas finest folks to the 2009 Fall Demo Derby! As usual it was a blast! Tony' s boss drives in it and we have been attending the past couple of years. This year we brought along Tony' s parents and our fabulous friends Cody and Kristine.

"You're so money you don't even know how money you are!"

I have no idea, but I thought I would share with you so you could understand the full extent of my dorkiness.

Fire! Fire!

Sunday it was time to focus on house stuff. I went and found some super cute sconces from Arty Crafty that turned out to be just what I was looking for!

I used food as a lovely bribe so Cody would come over and help Tony rearrange the furniture while Kristine and I gave them orders. I think it is coming together nicely! We got our coffee table and end tables ordered and on the way! Here is a sneak peak at what the arrangement will looks like and pictures of the tables!

(sorry for the bad quality. I can't seem to find my card reader)

This weekend I am going to relax and do as little as possible. I will be gone all week for work so I'm soaking up the home life for now!

life as of late

Where to start? Where to start...

The past week has been pretty eventful. On Saturday night I went to a play with my Grandmother. We went to The Rogers Little Theater to see "The Music Man". It wasn't half bad.

I love going to plays. I will always be a theater geek at heart. I am after all an honor thespian. I have been involved in theater since I took my first acting class in fifth grade (1995). I was instantly hooked! I did theater throughout jr. high and high school. When I started college it seemed like life just got too busy for it. I miss it so! Maybe one day soon I can make a little time for it.

On Sunday Tony and I headed west to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the day. You just have to get out of town every now and then, ya know? We had a lot of fun. I just love spending time with him. You would think after five years that yearning would fade, but it hasn't!

On Monday we got a new addition to the family!! A three month old black lab named Ponca. We already have one dog child named Ozark. I'll try and do a little post on them sometime this week.
Here is a picture of Ponca!!

Anyways, I'm trying to get better about remembering I have a camera that works now. Hopefully, I can start capturing more of my life with photographs. Tonight: A lovely traditional Arkansas date consisting of Hugo's for beer and burgers and the demolition derby!! I'm super excited and that always scares me a little!

best surprise ever!

Have I ever told you I have the best boyfriend in the world? Well, I do and tonight he just earned some more awesome points! There is a certain artist who I have been in love with since I was in fourth grade. You might have heard of him... one Mr. Dave Matthews? I have been dying to see him for as long as I can remember, but have just never had the chance. This September, I will.

Tony met me at the nail salon after my pedicure and we ran to aRby's to get a little bite of dinner before he headed to work. --sidenote: Tony works nights in Wal-Mart ISD-- He had been texting my earlier to see if I knew when I would be traveling in September for work. I told him I didn't know yet and didn't think much more of it. Well when we were at dinner he said, "I have a surprise for you, but I don't want to tell you. but I do want to tell you!" We aren't very good at keeping surprises from eachother and this was no exception. When he told me he had bought the tickets for the Little Rock show I flipped!!!! When I found out last spring that he would be in both Tulsa and Little Rock I asked Tony if we could go to one and he told me the tickets were too expensive. Sneak Sneaky, love!

So, look out Little Rock and get ready DMB! I'ma comin' to see ya!!!
