Here's a pic of Josh Groban from the concert Kelsey and I went to on Wednesday night - he is the little speck in the white shirt in the middle of the stage. I've got to tell you, he's absolutely dreamy!! I was pleasantly surprised that he acts like a regular guy - doesn't seem to have a big head from his fame - he's even a bit of a goofball. No wonder all of those young women were screaming and going crazy over him! It was an excellent show and I would recommend seeing him to anyone who might be considering it.

My boss and his wife had the tickets, but weren't able to attend, so he gave them to Kelsey and I, telling me as I left the office that day to use my company credit card and take the two of us to dinner too - he's such a sweetie. It was a special night for both of us.

Kelsey had an extra special day on Wednesday. She had challenged for oboe first chair in concert band, and was told on Wednesday that she won the challenge - yay! She also had a meeting on Wednesday with the senior art teacher for an interview/showing in application for a spot in the Pro Art program next year - the teacher told her that absolutely, she wanted her in the program. This program helps students put together a portfolio and focuses on advanced art. She could not have been more excited - it was *her* day, for sure!

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Yes, I'm still working on that Alluring Tales review - should have it up in the next day or two.

Oh how fun! He was here last night, but I didn't have tickets, plus I had an engagement party to go do, but didn't make it. The weather was horrible - freezing rain.

I like hearing he's just a normal guy. Too many out there with an attitude problem.

Thanks, Judy!

Stacy, he is adorable - maybe the "aww shucks" is just an act, but it seemed genuine. We had some terrible weather here last night too - several hours of freezing rain. Luckily, it warmed up to above freezing by 8 a.m., so the ice was gone fairly quickly.
