For our anniversary I surprised Todd with tickets to the No Doubt concert and a night at the Marriott downtown. We went down got some food and chilled in the room before we changed and went to the e Center. Now on our tickets we had 3rd row seats and when we got there found out they had changed it and there were no seats on the floor; the guy used the word "pit". So we got there around 7 and got pretty close to the stage. There were 2 opening acts...The Sounds and Paramore. Both were good but they played until about 9. Finally Gwen came out and boy was she hot! They were so good. And with every drunk, barfing person that left we got closer to the stage :) It was really cute, she brought her son, Kingston, on stage and we sang Happy Birthday to him. They played all the oldies and saved my favorite song for the finale. We were about 15 feet from the stage by now and on that last song she jumped down into the audience. A huge surge of fans pushed us closer and I was about 2 feet from her but couldn't reach her...so close! I got as many good pictures as I could and some video. Now keep in mind I was in a pit with people spilling crap on me, stepping on my feet, and jumping uncontrollably so the videos were harder to do! They played until 11:10 which was sweet. By the end we couldn't bend our knees or hear each other but it was a good time. We got back to the hotel, showered up and we were asleep in about 15 minutes. Does this mean we are too old to be in the pit? :) It was a great way to spend the old anniversary and now I have to top it next year :)

Here is a look back...
Well today is our 3rd Anniversary and I love him more and more everyday. I could go on and on about all of his awesome qualities and the wonderful way he treats me but that would take too much space :) so I will just say that he is a dream come true. I could not ask for anyone better or that loves me more. I love you very much and am grateful everyday for you and for us. I look forward to the adventures that lay ahead of us, Happy Anniversary baby!!!

Happy Mothers Day to everyone and a Happy Birthday to my mom and husband! I love you both. We had a good weekend. Got up very early on Saturday and did our annual breast cancer walk, which was very nice. Meredith (who is an old friend from KC and a survivor) and her daughter and our family went. The weather was beautiful which made the picnic that afternoon even better. We had the picnic and played in the park. Todd took on two little girls after their soccer game and played for an hour. I think he is ready for kids, it was cute! And then we went back to the house and celebrated Mothers Day and birthdays. We did the cake and ice cream thing and opened presents. Dad got her Il Divo tickets and we got mom work-out clothes and new shoes and I cant say it was her most favorite present she has ever received :) Todd got some clothes and shoes and we will do another little party this Friday on the actual day. It was a nice day and I am thankful for them both!
