Wordless Wednesday

I have a hard time being "wordless" :)
This is me with the guy who plays Brad Carlton on Young and the Restless. He was at Giant Eagle's Grand Opening.

When I used to work at the farm, I always had hair nets in my pocket. I used to like to put them on Maddie.

We had this picture taken at The Picture People.

BJ almost got kissed by a buffalo at African Wildlife Safari this summer.

Jackson looking at fish when we went to the zoo this past Spring.

Lifehouse Concert

On Sunday, I was fortunate enough to go to the Lifehouse concert at the House of Blues in Cleveland with my friend, Jolene, and her mom. We had an amazing time. We were front row, center! At one point the lead singer, Jason, grabbed my hand!

After the concert we ran into some people from Q104 and they told us where the tour bus was. There was about 2o people hanging out back there. When we walked up, Bryce (picture #1) was like "Hi Jolene" and he remembered me from the Lunch with Lifehouse. Jolene is a big fan and has been to a ton of their concerts. They all autographed our ticket stubs, too. It was awesome!! I got my picture with Rick the drummer (last photo), Ben the touring guitarist (third picture) and Bryce and Jason. The last two are on my cell phone yet, but the one with Jason didn't turn out.
I'm really excited because Jolene wants to take me to the Toledo show on Oct. 29 as an early birthday present. That is, as long as Lori will watch Jackson again :)
I'll try to post some video soon, too. It was freakin' awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
