Busy Week

This week was really busy for me.  It seemed like we had something to do every day this week. 
Sunday night Mark and I went to see Melissa Ethridge with some friends of ours.  She was awesome.  This was the 2nd time that I have seen her in concert.  The first time was right before she was diagnoised with breast cancer.  She came out with the awakening album after that.  That album is great.  I still love Lucky the most though.  Her concert was really cool.  She made the concert into a little story of her life and the songs she sang were about each stage in her life.  Funny I never realized that alot of her songs were so real to her life.
Wednesday night I went to see my favorite of all time perfomer.  I have seen Rod at least 10 times.  Rod Stewart and the Faces were my older sisters favorite and I grew up listening to him.  It carried over into my adult life also.  I just love seeing him in concert and I never tire of seeing him.  If any of you have ever been to a Rod Stewart concert you know that he kicks soccer balls out into the audience each concert he does.  They are autographed by him.  I caught one of those socceer balls on his 2004 tour and it is one of my "prized possesions"!  That was the highlight of my week for sure.

These are a few of the pics that I took at the concert.  I took my older sister with me since she is the one that introduced me to Rod to begin with!  That is her and I at the concert.  I took so many pictures! 
The other really exciting event this week was the new addition to our family.  Her name is Maggie May (yep after Rod Stewarts song, it has always been my favorite)  She is 8 weeks old (born June 9th) and she is a multipoo.  I am totally in love with her already.  So is everyone in the house, oh yea all my neighbors too!

I think she is just so cute!  Our other dogs and our cat have all adjusted to her being her already.  Diva (the cat) did not like her at all for the first day or two but now they chase each other around the house.  It is comical to watch.  House breaking is going alot better than I thought.
