Dave Matthews Concert and Ray Lamontagne Concert

I went to see Dave Matthews on 4/20 right here in Pelham down the street from my house and had first section tickets!!! Dave did he rendition of Burning down the house which was amazing!!! I am a huge DMB fan and saw him in Atlanta a few years ago and his concerts are always a sure treat that never disappoints!!!

On 4/27, the following Monday I got to see Ray Lamontage (pronounced La-mon-tain) in concert at the Alabama Theater which is a beautiful place to watch a concert. We sat in the front row of the balcony and had amazing seats. Ray's music has been on Grey's Anatomy and the movie, The Devil Wears Prada. The concert was great!!

For a girl who has such musical roots Birmingham is definitely the place for me to be!!!

I will post pictures as soon as possible. They are on my Blackberry and that takes time for me to upload and post. :)

Crawfish Boil 2009

This past weekend Sushannah came up to visit which is always a treat!!
Sushannah is one of the best friends a girl could ask for! She mean the world to me and has been with me through thick and thin. On Friday night, we went to the Crawfish Boil with Lauren and my brother, Shannon. We saw LL Cool J and Jason Mraz. It was ok but definetly crowded and so filthy. So we opted out on going the second night and went to have dinner at Jackson's Bisto in SOHO instead and of course we went out after that and partied like rockstars and Sushannah got to experience Nana Funk's which I think is something everyone should experience at least once!
I had a wonderful weekend and can's wait for her to come back and visit again!!!! Love you Sus!

Tickled Pink!!

So I just found out last Thursday that my sister, Terri, is having a little girl. Since she already has a son, Cameron, she will now be able to experience the best of both worlds!! Terri is such a great mother and I am so happy for her and I cannot wait to meet my niece which is due on my brother Chris's birthday, September 27th!

Little Miss Troy 2008-2009

Please click on the link above to watch McKenna's farewell video. It makes me cry everytime I watch it!! I am going to miss my McKenna Belle as she moves to Louisiana in a few weeks but that just means more roadtrips for Mom and I to see her and Suzanne. I love you McKenna Belle and am so proud of you! You made a beautiful Cinderella!!!!

Swine Flu???

So last night I started feeling so terrible. I took medicine and went straight to bed. I woke up feeling 10 times worse so I called into work and went straight to the doctor where I sat in the waiting room forever!! I finally got called back and told the doctor my symptoms and he put on gloves before he touched me and was like I think you may have the flu and I was thinking oh goodness not the swine flu!!! They took such much blood and a few other tests which made me anxious as I waited for my test results. Well, it turns out I have a bacteria infection with a long name that I cannot spell or really even remember what they told me I have. I got two shots, one in each hip which made me so dizzy and the nurse yelled help and I fainted. When I woke up, she told me I had lost all of my color and some man camee and placed me on the table to lay down where they made me bend my knees in, etc. I felt so terrible and embarrassed at this point but those shots were no joke. Oh well, hopefully I will be feeling better soon!! I hate being sick! Say a prayer for me!
