Weekly Weekend Update

My voice is back! Yay!
I went to the Doc on Friday, got some good meds, and came home and slept for the afternoon. Gotta love those sick hours I have racked up.

On to exciting things: Friday night was Luke's band's show in a Battle of the Bands and they won! Woo Hoo!

But I have to admit I had already left by the time they announced the winner. Nasty bars with scary people, sticky floors and chairs that I wouldn't touch with a ten inch pole aren't my cup of tea.

So after my boy's band played - I took out of there as fast as I could. I then enjoyed the rest of the night with my DVR while Luke breathed in germs that I can't even begin to speak of.

Anyways, Luke's band played really great, sounded really great, and their Indian lead singer was stinking cute. However this is me speaking 3 days after the event.

The night of the event I was a total wreck.

I don't know why, but I get SOOO nervous when Luke plays a show. It is so weird. Luke doesn't get nervous, I don't get nervous when he leads worship every Sunday morning, the band has never completely messed up a show or given me reason to get nervous, I just do. Luke thinks it is so weird that I get nervous.

I'm talking so nervous, my stomach is in knots, I can't eat, think, talk or watch the show. I usually don't even stay in the same room that they are singing in and I have NEVER taken a picture of Luke during one of his shows because I don't want people to think I'm 'that girl'. Clearly I have issues.

So anyways my friend Kelsey was nice enough to take pictures.

Here is Luke rockin' the show - he would be so embarassed by that statement. Good thing he will read this after it is published.
Me and Luke with Kelsey the photog for the night. Thanks Kels!
Before the show I went and ate with two of my friends Stephanie and Tambra. We all used to see each other almost every day, now we see each other about every 4 months, so we are excited when we get together! Growing up is hard to do.

This is a picture I tried to take using my self-timer. I get so nervous asking random people to take my picture (I'm really not a shy person) so I try to set my timer as much as possible. Our waiter was about 2 seconds from walking in front of the camera which is why we appear to be screaming.

I'm realizing how many weird phobias I have.

Pay It Forward!
Tonight I came home and the wonderful Liz had sent me a package!!!!! I was so excited!!!!
Don't you just love getting packages in the mail??
She sent me:
Two very cute Chrsitmas towels
1 christmas cookie mix with a cookie cutter
and..
A gift card to chick fila! She knows me well.
Thanks so much Liz I love it!
I also took this opportunity to showcase our tiny Christmas tree becaue I know my grandma would like to see it.
I would never write a post about my Christmas decorations because, well friends, you are looking at it. Just one little 4 ft tree. But I plan to go all out next year!
Hope you had a great weekend!

Keep Rockin!

You are such a cutie! I love your tiny tree, and I'm so glad your friend could step in for you and take pics. That was sweet :)

Jenna said...

You are the cutest thing ever. I love the pics from the show and I of course love the laughing picture. If someone took a pic of my right now, you'd also see me laughing - at you my funny friend!

valerie said...

I like your little tree.
You'll always be able to look back at your first Christmas tree as a married couple. As i was hanging our ornaments up I thought back through the years of all the memories.

Congrats to Luke for winning the best band contest. I know how you feel about getting nervous for him.

Glad you got your voice back! Yay!
P.S. I probably won't post anything about OU again for a while...at least until Jan. 8. ;)

My home - My life said...

That is so sweet that you get so nervous when he plays - glad he did well!

Also, so glad to hear you are feeling better. Everyone at work is getting sick and I am hoping I can avoid it. Take care.

Cute post and cute tree!! And great gift! I really like it! And don't worry I have some strange phobias too! Ha-Ha!

Mrs. Cup said...

What a cute tree! The pictures are great!

Meg said...

don't be ashamed of your 4-fter, I have a 1-fter!! It is sad...I really wanted to get a grown-up tree this year, but my fiance convinced me to wait until we are married and have a place together. He is sooo darn practical, just because I have a 1 bedroom apartment and no where to dispaly/ or store a tree...It is not all about size anyways!

THE Stephanie said...

Ok, that tree is adorable! If my friends hadn't have thrown me a Christmas shower before we got married, that would've probably been our first tree, too!

Happy Monday!

I'm so glad you are feeling better! I hate being sick :) That is also so exciting the Luke's band won! My hubby was in a band way back in the day, but at least he'll still sing to me!

Heather said...

I love your little tree! So glad your voice is back...and I think I "get" being nervous when your hubby is playing...I get nervous when mine coaches a game sometimes...although it has lessened over the years!

Sweet Simplicity said...

Liz said...

Lindsey said...

amy (metz) walker said...

I'm totally wierd, too. Every time Dusty flies for a business trip, I have this phobia that my life is about to change forever. I make him text me the minute he lands. The strange part, is that my dad is a pilot...so I shouldn't freak, but I do!

Cute pics! Yall are precious!

petrii said...

Okay so this is random, but I love that name, Tambra. I've never hear that before. So cute.

Okay anyway, speaking of cute ~~ you are adorable!!! You are Luke are so sweet together.

Love your gifts and that adorable tree.

Have a Blessed evening, Dawn
