What dreams are made of…

First of all who doesn’t love Jay Z? This pic is the backdrop from his concert. Let's hear it for NY.

I have so many memories of hearing his songs in clubs or bars over the past 11 years. God it’s been that long?!?! Everything from 99 problems, to Hard Knock Life, Big Pimpin, Can I Get A What What, and my personal favorite…Dirt Off Your Shoulder.
Last night Callie and I scored some prime platinum seating at the AAC with a price tag of $20. Who could say no to that? Jay Z performed them all, and was awesome. I think the people watching was also second to none. At first we stuck out a little, but started to fit right in with our lyrical knowledge and throwing our diamonds up and by the end of the show we were legit. Picked up all that grammatical poetry from the folks around us.

It was a fun time, and also a gentle reminder that I’m getting older. Vodka and red bull till midnight on a school night doesn’t make the next morning as easy as it once was.

It was everywhere, and although a was beautiful. Most of us enjoyed some time off work, and the neighborhood snowball fights. I didn't enjoy a few days sans power. No power = no heat, and no hot water. I saw a lot of snowmen and can say I was here for the biggest snow storm in Dallas TX history.

My b-day was shared with many events this year. The Twins turned 2 and had a party, and Erin & Josh had a housewarming party. I got morning cuddle time with my nephew, and lunch with Rob & Allison. I saw a movie with some girlfriends, went to lunch with a few others, another gave me season 2 of Friday Night Lights on DVD and we decided to watch 8 episodes in a row (my idea of a perfect day). My husband also made me breakfast in bed, and sent 2 doz roses to the office.

The only mom didn't call. She seems to think that because she is very sick, and combined cold meds with a margarita, therefore knocking her unconscious for 24 hours...somehow makes it ok. I know I'm a grown up and it shouldn't matter, but it does. She apologized, and I know it wasn't intentional and accepted her apology, but it mattered.

Gratuitous Baby pics

I mean I know you're all dying to see him right? Ha. I can't stand it, he's 6 months old and the most adorable baby on the planet. I know I'm biased but he is. Look at those rolls! So squishable.
