plays, pianist, and proudly organized

Mother nature has been doing some drastic cleaning these last several weeks. I'm pretty sure that she had accumulated some major dust bunnies up there and did not know what to do. So, for the past several weeks, she has just sat back and just cried her little eyes out at the thought of even trying to get rid of those darn dust bunnies.

While mother nature was trying to decide what she wanted to do, Mike and Carly decided they were coming down and going to IKEA to get a few things. We had the opportunity to go to dinner with them at Macaroni Grill. After we left the restraunt, we went to the Scera outdoor theater to see Beauty and the Beast and from the looks of it, mother nature got a handle on some of the bunnies that had been causing quite a stir. We got halfway through the show and it started to downpour. :( Unfortunately, they cancelled the show and we were forced to take cover elsewhere. I felt really bad that Mike and Carly didn't get to see the whole play. Carly I hope you don't mind, I stole this from your blog. :)
Bethie and I were able to go back this past weekend and see the whole thing and it was well worth it. Everyone did and excellent job and the weather couldn't have been better. There was a guy in the audience that surprised his g/f by proposing to her in front of the audience. Maurice brought them up and said if they could answer a question then they would get a nice gift. The question was, there is a word that follows the story of beauty and beast and what is that word? He let them think it over for a couple of minutes. They guys reply was "love". When i think about love, I think of my g/f. He then got down on his knee and proposed. It was so dang cute.
We are making a trip to Logan this weekend. :) Karl and Becky are going to Vegas for their anniversary and we will be staying at their house to make sure"The Boy"(derek) is taken care of and behaving..ha!
Carly and I will be getting together on Saturday to do a little scrapbooking. :) I needed to get some things in order before I took it to Logan. I had some ribbon in one box and more ribbon in another, so I decided to put all the ribbon together so I wouldn't be searching for it when I needed it. I was feeling very organized this past Saturday...whew! I found a website about craft organizing and some pretty cool ideas. I can't remember what the name of the website is, sorry.
Anyways, I found a cool way to organize all my ribbon. You take an embroidery floss container or a container that you can seperate beads in, then you find some paper spools and wrap your ribbon around the spools and seperate them in colors or however you like. I loved this idea and it keeps your ribbon so its not coming apart and all over the place. I didn't know that I had this much ribbon. But I really like it all together!

On Monday June 22nd, Jim Brickman was doing a performance at the Scera. Bethie and I were both excited to see him play as we have not seen him in concert before. I was amazed at how well he played the piano. Wow! It was really good and he had 2 people singing with him, Anne Cochran and Mark Masri. They were both really good too and Mark sang a song in Italian that was soo good!
I thought the highlight of the night was when Jim Brickman sang "the rainbow connection" in his kermit the frog voice. It was good and the kids enjoyed it.
