My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

MB concert and my job~

Disclaimer-the quality of all these photo's are awful so don't expect much. Being dark and the people on stage continually moving made it hard for me to "get" the shot;)
The concert was great!
Naturally 7 opened for him. I once saw them on ELLEN. They ARE nuts amazing. You HAVE to go to YouTube and watch a video of theirs or two or 10. They don't use instruments. It's all with their mouth. They sound like drums, flute, bass, etc. It is truly unbelievable!

I wish that was me.......... one of the people that got to shake his hand. My seats that I payed the most for had a barricade in front of them so no running down to the front for me.
My daughter kept saying "mom! aren't you excited?" "mom! what's wrong?" I think I was in shock that I was that close and yet so far:) :( :) :( :) :( :) :( :)
It was awesome and a great mother/daughter night. It was her first real time away from Cooper since he was born. She really loved it. She was going as a favor to me and had never really listened to MB, but fell in love with him like everyone else:)

Amy, her daughter and Courtney!
What day is it? I am really getting into my new job, going to bed and waking up with it on my mind. I love feel that passion again. I will be traveling alot and leave for Omaha next Monday. Can't wait! OMG! I just realized......................da! It's Friday!
Fabulous Friday Everyone!


My job is all I had hoped for and more. It is such a gift and I appreciate more than words can say. It is perfect for me and exactly what I have prayed for. The organization is amazing. It's like a well oiled machine that runs to perfection, which is extremely difficult in this field. I can say that I am proud to represent them in public. Which is a must for me. My role is: 1/2 fundraiser and 1/2 Public Relations with some misc thrown in there;)

The concert looked like it was so much fun. And the pictures weren't bad at all. He still looked so yummy!!!! I'm glad that you were able to enjoy it with your daughter.

It's so nice to hear that your job is fulfilling you!!! Most people can't say that about their jobs.

I'm so glad you had a great time and that you are enjoying your new job............

LUCKY! How I would love to see Michael Buble!

Currently his CD is in the CD player in the kitchen. He and Josh Groban, who I HAVE seen in concert, are two of my favorites! If you ever have the chance, go see Josh. His voice sounds just like it does on the radio or his CD's.

Was Michael funny? He usually is whenever I see him on TV.
