I'm playing along with Bloggingmama-andrea.blogspot.com and her friend Keely at The Unmom.com/ Hit them up and see how random they are.

- We went to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir concert at RED ROCKS last night. It was fantabulous. I didn’t want to go and had a bad attitude. Parker and I arrived way early and enjoyed the beautiful weather, scenery and ultimate nachos. I don’t love the Mormon Tabernacle Choir but they did a great job and it was the perfect night.

- I broke my back somehow. Okay, it’s not broken. It just feels like it is. It’s been hurting since….like Thursday or maybe Friday. So I didn’t break it helping Brian move into his new office because that was Saturday. That probably didn’t help though. And I didn’t break it while taking the empty propane tank off the BBQ and hefting a full one on. That probably didn’t help though. Needless to say, climbing 10 billion steps at the concert and sitting in a backless chair probably didn’t help either.

- Today is Tuesday. You know what that means! TRAMBODIA! Okay, it’s not like I sit in front of the computer all day waiting for an email because I don’t. That would be stupid. He’s in bed sleeping right now. It’s just whenever I’m not thinking about something else like random thoughts……….then I think about tonight when we will get an email.

- That was crazy how Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett <- remember when she was Majors?, Michael Jackson and Billy Mays died.
How did you find out about Farrah and Michael? Here’s how I found out. My friend IMed me and said “Farrah passed.” I was on the way out the door to a movie so I couldn’t IM. I texted him and asked for details.
I’m not into stuff like this but everyone needs a gay friend because they always know the scoop. Okay, so I didn’t exactly text for details. I texted that only gays care about the drama and keep track of Farrah and Liza Minelli. This is what I got back: “I don’t give a rat’s ass about Farrah OR Liza. But….now poor Jack is gone.”
- I saw The Proposal. I liked it! It was cute. Cuter than I thought it would be. I would even see it again.
- I’m reading The 19th Wife. It’s fiction about a woman who is one of Brigham Young’s wives and escapes polygamy intertwined with a modern day murder mystery taking place at a polygamous compound. Definitely not a Deseret Book publication. If you have read it, email me. I want your thoughts!!!!!
- Oh yeah – I mentioned my bad attitude. I’ve had a lousy attitude about a lot of things lately.........well mostly only things that have to do with going places or church or seeing people or being hungry or having to breathe or.......how Blogger messes up spacing
Brian even asked where we could by some good cupcakes cuz I’m so grumpy. I should take him up on his offer and degrouchify myself!
That’s RANDOM!

Hey Gina, have you been to Nomelie Cupcakes on Mainstreet in Parker? I haven't been in there yet, but it looks good! Hope you have a better day!

The concert last night was absolutely incredible. There's no way a cd can ever compare! Seeing them live was thrilling.

Get yourself a big old cupcake and a coke and your book and sit outside in the warm sunshine. Or a nice patch of shade. I have been grouchy lately too, but I know why that's been happening!

Nomelie's on Mainstreet in Parker isn't too bad. A bit pricey for their not-so-big-cupcakes. You have to go early because they only make a certain number each day. I liked the red velvet and the coconut (almost too coconut-y.) I know you love cupcakes, but Josh and I have come to love The Cookie Company at Southlands. The Banana Nut is AMAZING. WE also found a new italian bakery that just opened on Pikes Peak just off of Mainstreet in Parker. They've got all sorts of delicious little things. We've yet to try their restaurant next door. Anyway.... I hope you satisfy your sweet tooth!

PS. The concert last night was incredible. We were shocked to be a couple of rows right behind the Prophet! I was pretty impressed with the camera on my phone.

The Choir is so much better in person than watching them on TV. I can never understand them when listening to conference. Hope your back feels better soon.

Girls, girls, girls, you know me so well!

I took Val's advice and sat out on my patio with an ice cold coke and a bag of chips (no cupcake) and a book for an hour. Ahhhhh....

I have been to Nomelie. The minute I dropped everyone off at youth conference, I dropped by for their outrageously priced cupcakes. The Vanilla vanilla was delicious. I almost ate it in one bite. The chocolate with coconut frosting was a little bit of a disappointment because.....gasp...it didn't taste that fresh!

But alas, they are too pricey for me. Thanks for the love!

Keely said...
