Last Night

Last night my family and I went to a benefit concert for Jen's Kids and it was great!

Paul Todd charities put on this wonderful concert where half the proceeds go to Jen's Kids and the other half goes to The Harry Chapin Food Bank.

It was supposed to be from 7-9 but he was also taping this concert for TV and I think he said he was going to make a DVD so he planned on singing more songs than usual...well it didn't end till around 10:30! Thank goodness I planned ahead and thought to bring an extra oxygen tank "just in case."

There was a little bit of something for everyone last night but I think my favorite part was when Paul sang with the Chaloosahatchee Stompers. They were 5 older gentleman each playing different instruments Trumpet, Trombone, Clarinet, Tuba and the Banjo. I think my inner redneck girl was itching to come out when they were on stage!! :)

Thank you again to ALL the great people I met last night and to all the generous people who support Jen's Kids and my vision everyday. We really couldn't make my idea a reality without them.

Fun Weekend

Wow I had a busy (but fun) weekend!!

A few weeks ago when us and some friends went to the comedy club I had filled out some card for a drawing and actually won! I NEVER when anything so I was shocked. I got to invite as many people as I wanted to come to see a free comedy show and they also gave everyone a free appetizer! We had a group of like 25 for Friday nights show and when that was over at 10 (there are 2 shows 8 and 11, 8 being non-smoking) we went to Mona Lisa's which is this little Italian restaurant that has karaoke every night! It was a blast as are a couple of pictures.

Saturday night we went out to dinner for our friend Jenny's 29th B-day. She is visiting from Minnesota where Danny and her brother Curt are from and she goes home today. We went to Lee Roy Selmon's for dinner it was our first time there and it was really good. The waiter could have been a little better but other than that food was great. Here are a couple of pics from Saturday...

Girls Night Out

Well its been a few days since I blogged anything and its not because I haven't had things to say its just because I was being lazy and not uploading my GNO pics to my computer and I knew I wanted to add this great picture to my post! :)

10 of us girls went to the Melting Pot for dinner last Wednesday night and it was fabulous!! 5 of the girls were my girlfriends from high school and 4 are my friends who I have met since I have been with my husband. So it was a great mixture of new and old and everyone gets along great. I swear I haven't laughed that hard in a LONG time...and im sure the cosmos helped! ;)

I did go to the doctor last week and other than a few crackles I am doing good so that was good to hear.

Today there was a fundraiser for Jen's Kids that I went to with my mom. People bought tickets to have lunch and sit at a table with a local celebrity of there choice. It went really well and I met a lot of great people.

I didn't take any of my own pictures but there was a photographer there and she gave me her card so once I get some pictures from her I will post them!

Tomorrow is St. Patty's day and we are supposed be going out tomorrow night. It all depends on what time Danny gets home from work though so we shall see!

Good Night!! :)
