It Happens

Back in September my friend AP and I went to a concert in Ames. We really just wanted to see Matt Nathanson and he was opening for Sugarland. Neither of us were Sugarland fans or even really knew more than one or two of their songs. But we were willing to suffer through Sugarland just to see Matt.
Well Matt was great! And then there was some country guy whose name escapes me completely. The only thing I remember about him is that he had nice arms. And then Sugarland took the stage. What a great show!! And now, months later I've finally gotten around to downloading some of the songs we heard that night. I'm totally hooked on their stuff. You'll notice I didn't even bother to get my camera out during their part of the show. Shame on me!

In the infamous words of Jennifer Nettles....

Ain't no thyme or reason
No complicated meaning
Ain't no need to over think it
Let go laughing

Life don't go quite like you planned it
We try so hard to understand it
Irrefutable, indisputable
The fact is, psssh, it happens

September Camping

oh i'm so far behind in blogging... so much to say so little time! We had the pleasure of camping with the whole gang in September again. This time Jason (a.k.a. my #1 blog fan) came prepared. With his portable 27 inch TV, Xbox 360 and a box full of games. I don't know if we can really call this "roughing it"?

Denise did not partake in the gaming.

They were getting too much glare so we had to create make-shift "walls". Here you can see Dan kicking all three of their butts at Halo!

We were finally able to get the Iowa game on our little TV. I think we've decided to upgrade the camper tv next season!

Say a prayer today

My friend Kim's little girl Song is having open heart surgery at the University of Iowa hospitals this morning. Please say a little prayer for Song and her family and her doctors.
