Hey! Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving weekend It’s not really a happy monday because everyone’s back at work and I’m planning on wearing my loosest, flowiest outfit after a serious indulging weekend but let’s just focus try on the positive/marvelous…
Marvelous is….going to see Keith Urban a week ago. I’m not a really loyal music fan…I’ll like individual songs, but usually dislike the artist. I watch music award shows and hate everyone (can we please let taylor swift leave an award show without lavishing her with awards?! homegirl should never ever ever ever ever win vocalist awards over carrie underwood, which keeps happening) — Keith is the only artist I’m really steadfastly loyal to. He came to Baltimore in September for NFL kick-off and performed a few songs. I’m so thankful my two co-workers/friends are country music fans and we all went. After the show we were talking about how good he was and how we would have paid for it. So we bought tickets and drove an hour to George Mason to see him. It was incredible. He is SO GOOD. I really wasn’t totally sure how it would be for a whole set, because in interviews he’s totally shy and nervous, but he was so playful and goofy in concert and kept running into the crowd (never our section, of course) to sing. Plus, to quote my sister who also went to see him the day before we did, “He shreds the shit out of a guitar.” The people in the row behind us were on “pick-watch” to spot if he was actually using a pick or not whenever the cameras would zoom in on his fingers. It’s sad he’s so underrated because it was the best show I’ve ever seen. He played for 2.5 hours! I wonder what it’s like to be so talented?! If I could sing/play like that, I’d never shut up. Oh wait.
Marvelous is….Thanksgiving and family time. My parents were in their element with all three of us home and our Labradoodle Maggie’s tail got a serious work-out with all the wagging. We saw both sides of the family and it was terrific with so many laughs as always. Our estranged uncle even came to dinner which is something we were all so very thankful for. And if you follow me on Instagram, you saw I was Instagram’ming Maggie every .12 seconds sooo.
Marvelous is…the upcoming holidays. I know time is going to fly and pretty soon it’ll be Christmas. I’m home practically every weekend in December for the holiday party circuit. I love the holiday parties (although picking out outfits and getting ready is another story…) and how often I see family. Although I reallllllllly hate picking out gifts…not one of my talents. I want to just give everyone amazon gift cards, ha. It’s also the season of advent calendars! My uncle gives all the kids advent calendars at thanksgiving. I’ve already eaten the chocolates of the 24th and 25th because I obviously will be home in PA and will be unable to eat the chocolates then.
Marvelous is….Cyber Monday! I hate crowds. I hate feeling rushed or frantic. So Black Friday is so very far from anything I’d ever put myself down in the middle of. Cyber Monday is so my speed.
Marvelous is…this song. I know LeAnn Rimes has gone off the rails in the last few years but this song is a classic and makes me want to pack up and do exactly what she’s talking about.
