I went to Saint Rocke to see Sharon Little, Schulyer Fisk and Matt White. It was a fun concert and a really cute venue in Manhattan Beach (thanks Morgs for finding it). But, we had to go through some rough parts of town. Most people would say they didn't want to live there. But, not Robin, she said "If I lived here, I would go to CVS EVERY day." (I love Robin, she is such a dork sometimes). - For those of you who don't know CVS is a drug store, nothing to get excited about, but the most high class place we'd seen for a while. We stopped at one of them to get candy (of course) and took it to the concert. Diz turned to us and said "Why do I feel like I am at the movies???"
Then I got to go home to Texas! Yipee. Chloe got baptized. I can't believe she's already 8!!! She was so cute! After her baptism we went to the Larson School Carnival. My sister Kimberly's kids are OBSESSED with Chick-fil-a. It's cute. Anytime there is chick-fil-a they all rave about what a good party it is. The cow mascot was at the fair and my nephew Ethan turned to me and said "it's the cow from chick-fil-a, I KNEW he'd be here!" Maybe you had to be there, but it was SO funny.
But, the best part of my trip was the part where my mom tried to set me up with Aaron, the guy who does their pond. Sure, he did know quite a bit about fish and algae, but he had a long grey ponytail and tattoos, lots of tattoos, but not the cool kind, the naked pin-up lady kind AND he was old! Apparently, it has come to this! My mom tried to ho me out to the gardener. Fortunately for me he was married!
And, then we had a BBQ and frolic at the beach. Aaaahhhh... I love the beach.
Which brings us to tonight... we had the cutest activity for mutual. We went to the Heritage House, which helps single mothers get back on track. We threw a Halloween party for the kids. And, I have to say, I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to keep all the kids! Plus, I was pinky sworn to do two things I seriously did not want to do, but agreed to because I LOVE my YW and I'd do anything for them. 1.) I joined Facebook although, I am still VERY unsure of the whole thing! "Tag Me"; and 2.) I agreed to read Twilight... and join team Edward??? Or Jacob??? But, I (along with Jen Andersen) don't like anything middle-earth or majestic or outer world. And, I am not into Romance Novels, so I am a bit tentative about the vampire love story... but...
So, there you go mom... the most recent update on my life, with photos and all.
