Musically inspired

Happy Monday everyone!  It is rainy and dreary here this morning but thankfully it waited until Monday morning.  We were able to enjoy a wonderful, warm, sunny weekend this way.

K had two games Saturday morning instead of one and her sweet best friend was there to cheer her on with us.

Then came Saturday night. Cinco de Mayo.  The night my girls have been waiting for, for months.  The night of the Francesca Battistelli concert.  :)  She was actually playing with Jeremy Camp, an incredibly and well known artist in his own right.  As you can see, we had amazing seats (just 5 rows in back thanks to my in-laws!) Thank you B&G!

But none of that mattered to my girls, they wanted to see Francesca!  :)

As you can see, she is quite pregnant.  I can't imagine having to put on concerts being about 8 months pregnant.  All I wanted to do when I was that far along was sleep!   One of my favorite parts was when her husband came up and played the guitar while she sang "100 more years".  Love the song but I spent most of   my time watching L.  That is her absolute favorite song. Yes, it plays over, and over, and over and over on her CD player.  Who invented the repeat button. LOL

Please check out the song on YouTube.  I don't think you will be disappointed. :)


Wanted to also share another music related item with you today.  Our challenge at Emma's Paperie last week was to create a project based on a song.  I love music, it plays in our house almost continuously.  Since we listen to mostly Contemporary Christian music, so many songs speak to me.  So why was it that I had such a hard time deciding on what song to use?  What inspired and moving song do I end up using you ask?  Our House in the Middle of the Street by Talking Heads.  Yes, that is right. Not the inspired project I was I was envisioning. I am happy with the project though.  I have had this mini album sitting on my desk and have been wanting to scrap the photos of our new house so this was the perfect opportunity.

I do actually plan to do a layout for the girls using the song "The Words I Would Say" by Sidewalk Prophets Love this song.  It says everything to them that I can't seem to put in words.

Enjoy your week.  Hope you can find some sunshine even though you may also be dealing with gray skies.  Thanks for stopping by today!

The exterior design of your house is pretty much like mine. :) I've done a page or two about our house but not a fun album like you did. Sounds like you guys had a great time at the concert (although I have to admit I don't know who these people are, LOL!) :)
