Big Bad Voo Doo Daddy....

Saw these very talented guys at the Scera Shell last night. Don't know much about them, didn't think I would like them, but they were truly
The lead singer/guitarist reminded me so much of Frank Sinatra with his deep voice and his very classy dance moves. All the other guys could play their instrument like no other. I would go see them again in a heartbeat!

Birthday thoughts...

Today is my 40th birthday, which seems like a big deal yet it seems so impossible and sounds so old.
It seems silly to make a big t0-do over your own birthday, or to secretly hope someone else will throw together a huge birthday bash. But its kind of sad to let it pass without a festive nod of some sort.
As a blogger it feels funny to draw attention to my birthday by writing about it, but it feels wrong to let it pass without mention. So for now, I am just going to acknowledge it and accept it. I guess this is the state of mind that I have been in for the last several weeks, because I have been dreading turning 40.
I guess this is reality and the fact that I am even publishing my age here on my blog shows great progress.
I think there is a couple of different things that have helped me in reaching this age. One being that I regualarly get told that I look about 10 years younger. I am amused by this, but I am definetely not complaining. :) Two is that I have so many wonderful people in my life. Whether it is family or friends or even complete strangers. They have helped me be who I am today and I love them for that.
I guess I don't have time to worry about silly things like getting older. There is a much bigger picture and I realize that they don't really matter in that big picture anymore.

I think I have figured out how to like and accept myself and that is exactly as I am. It doesn't really matter what age it is when that happens but it is going to be a beautiful one when it does.

So..... Happy Birthday to me! :)

    Here is a card that I made for Beths sister-in-law. She is expecting a little boy in August. They are throwing her a baby shower this weekend in Logan. I am excited to see all the cute things she will be receiving(Ahem, Carly!) Just thought I would share this card, I thought it turned out pretty cute.

    This is the inside of the card.

    My latest addiction...

    I love love love the show Army Wives on Lifetime! I saw it advertised and thought it looked really good. I didn't want to start watching it in the middle, so I started on season 1 and am now playing catch up. It really does hit close to home,not only what the people in the army go through, but what the wives go through while they are away. I find myself crying on each episode that I watch. Oh, and the music on each episode is amazing! You should check it out.

    Who doesn't like zucchini fresh right out of the garden? My mom has been giving me some from her garden and I'm loving it. The best way I have found to eat it, other than zucchini bread is slice it up with the peeling still on(peel it if you like). Put it on a cookie sheet and drizzle it with a little olive oil. Add some salt, pepper and garlic salt and toss so it is coated. Put it in the oven on a hight heat, turning occasionely. Keep an eye on it, it cooks pretty fast. Delish!
