Concert season has begun

It always seems that end of April to early May is the un-official start of "concert season" here in west MI. I love concerts and have already been to see Keith Urban so far this year, am going to see Kenny Chesney on June 2nd with Dierks Bentley and Carrie Underwood and have 2 more on the docket. They just announced Tim McGraw and Faith Hill May 7th and Sugarland is playing Summer Celebration July 5th.

I have my tickets for Kenny, Dawnn and I are making plans to see Sugarland (she's beside herself with excitement over this) and I am seriously considering going to see Tim and Faith. I was thinking of going when I was home in Seattle in August when they are playing but those are sold out, I just asked a friend of mine if she wanted to go, she's thinking about it.

Can't wait to see who else comes to town this year!

Happy Friday!

Johari Window

I got this from Veronica's blog. Please visit the link below and pick out words that you think describe me.

Click here: Johari Window

Some background info:

The Johari Window was invented by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham in the 1950s as a model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up.

Kenny tickets are in my hand!

As mentioned many posts ago I got Kenny Chesney tickets before they went on sale, because I got them through work. I got them in my hot little hands today!

I am for sure going to the 1st show, Friday June 2. WooHoo!

New eyes!

I had an eye appointment today to get my eyes checked and to get new contacts and glasses, I was overdue by several years!

I have vision insurance through work that covers glasses or contacts each year so I took advantage of it. I'm happy to report my eyes are no better or worse than last time. My right eye is actually a bit better so she adjusted my prescription for that so they are more balanced because my left eye has been doing most of the work to compensate. I have a trial pair of new contacts to wear and I have a follow up appointment next week to make sure they fit alright and I don't have any problems. I am sticking with Acuvue 2 but now I have the new hydraclear which helps them "breathe". So far so good.

I also ordered new glasses. I am really pleased with them and think they will look good. It's always a little scary going alone and hoping you made the right choice with frames. I did have a helpful person though that I felt comfortable with when trying on different lenses. Here's a link to my new glasses:

Whatcha think?

What temperment are you?

I'm kind of feeling uninspired for posting right now so I thought I'd toss this out too.
Take it and see what you are. I think this one fits me well.

You Have a Phlegmatic Temperament

Mild mannered and laid back, you take life at a slow pace.
You are very consistent - both in emotions and actions.
You tend to absorb set backs easily. You are cool and collected.

It is difficult to offend you. You can remain composed and unemotional.
You are a great friend and lover. You don't demand much of others.
While you are quiet, you have a subtle wit that your friends know well.

At your worst, you are lazy and unwilling to work at anything.
You often get stuck in a rut, without aspirations or dreams.
You can get too dependent on others, setting yourself up for abandonment.

What Muppet are you?

CASE'd from Veronica

You Are Scooter

Brainy and knowledgable, you are the perfect sidekick.
You're always willing to lend a helping hand.
In any big event or party, you're the one who keeps things going.
