SCOTT'S 29th BIRTHDAY FEAST!

On Saturday May, 7th Scott turns 29, so to help us celebrate all of our friends (some of which after running the mini marathon earlier that morning) went to the Brazilian Grill for the special occasion. For those of you that are not familiar with Brazilian food, they cook everything on very large skewers and bring them out to your table and cut the meats off right there in front of you. They will keep coming with all different kinds of meats, chicken, beef, lamb, sausage, and pork marinated in all different kinds of flavors, smoked etc....It's a meat lovers dream dinner. It took us 2 and a half hours to eat dinner that night and to make the occasion even better, our friends all chipped in and bought Scott and I a Wii for his birthday, my birthday and my graduation!


This is the before picture and I'm not sure what Scott is doing with his prongs here!

The massive brownie we all had to help Scott eat, and of course the after picture. Note to self, this is what eating chicken, pork, beef, sausage and lamb will do to you!

The Master Graduated!!!!

That's right I finally finished my Masters Degree.......so what if it took me 8 years to do it it's done!!!! On Friday, May 2, 2008 I officially walk in the Masters/Doctorate ceremony at the University of Indianapolis even though I finished the program back in December, I now have a Master of Arts degree from UIndy along with Bachelor of Music Education from Butler. Here's some of the pictures from the ceremony that Scott took.

Michael Buble What A Day!

On Friday April 18th Scott got tickets for the Michael Buble concert at Consceo Fieldhouse (where the Pacers play). It was a Valentine's day gift which ended up as an even better gift!!!! Scott being an employee at Consceo Fieldhouse was given comp tickets to the event which was pretty close to being sold out. It ended up that the comp tickets he was given were much closer to the stage than the original tickets he bought, so close in fact Michael Buble was just 5 rows away from us at one point! We even sat right next to one of the assistant coaches for the Pacers too!!!!! All in all it was quite an evening, we had dinner with some former students from Franklin Central and Band moms and the concert was unbelievable, even Scott enjoyed it and the opening act Naturally 7 was amazing. Scott and I both suggest checking out their music, it's all based on "voice play" where each member of the group imitates an actual instrument, but they are so good at it that it's extremely hard to tell that they are creating the instrument sounds with their voices! Here's some of our footage from the evening!






Here's some of our favorite shots from the evening including the dinner shot of Scott and I! The guys in the white is the opening Act Naturally 7, and of course the others are of Michael Buble!

MORE HOLIDAY FUN!





HOLIDAY FUN!!!

It's that time of year again, Scott and I spent the past two weeks traveling to visit family in both Michigan and Illinois. It was good to see everyone again especially his 90 year old grandma who lives in a little tiny town called Fairview which looks like it was designed after a Norman Rockwell painting. All in all the holidays were excellent, Scott got me a new Payton Manning jersey the authentic repelica and of course jewelry!!!!! He always has very good taste! I some what surprised him with a Chicago Cubs Brick that will be placed in the newly renivated area in the outfield side walk behind the bleachers....Scott happened to be home when the confirmation envelope was delivered. But yes Christmas was excellent and it's always fun to see everyone again. Here's some of our favorites.

COLTS GAME!!!!



Scott and I were fortunate enough to go to the Colts vs. Jacksonville game this past weekend in Indianapolis in the RCA dome. This was one of the last few home games the Colts will play in the RCA Dome with the new Luca Oil stadium opening up this August with DCI Finals. Colts home games are wild and crazy and extremely loud, other NFL teams accuse us of pumping crowd noise into the dome when it's really just loud and proud fans! GO COLTS!

FC DRUMLINE WITH KEITH URBAN!

On Thursday, Nov. 8th the FC drumline performed during Keith Urban's sold out concert at Conseco Field House (where Scott works). I was not fortunate enough to get a ticket...I gave mine to our percussion staff since they were bigger Keith Urban fans than I, however we had many band parents an percussion staff who took pictures and cell phone video's so here's a little of the action from the concert. Enjoy!
