Thursday's Treasures: To Buy

A lot of what I post on here for Thursday's Treasures are truly wish lists (unless I win the lottery). However I do have some things that I really do plan on purchasing in the future (or will end up on my Christmas list!)

An anorak

A "winter white" lace dress

A basic/casual black dress

A pair of neutral colored wedge booties

A pair of neutral oxfords

Smaller stackable rings

It's Never Lupus...

Yesterday evening my husband and I went up to Carmel to the Palladium and saw Hugh Laurie (aka Dr. House) and the Copper Bottom Band perform. It was our first time at this particular venue (which the Palladium has only been around since last year!) and let me say the venue is beautiful! We had good seats in one of the higher levels but behind the stage.

Our view

The venue was very strict on the use of cameras (there were signs everywhere when you came in the building saying NO PHOTOS AND NO VIDEO INCLUDING CELL PHONES). So I only took a few pictures at the end of the show (although I saw lots of flashes go off durring the show and only one person got a talking to from an usher, but in all honesty we did sneak some video the rebels that we are).

Afterwards we both stood outside where the busses were parked and waited in hopes of seeing Hugh and getting an autograph.

Thursday's Treasures: Live show bucket list

I've been fortunate to have attended several concerts in my life including some big stars like Cher, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel and Elton John (together!), Kenny Chesney, Weird Al, Metallica, and George Strait. Still there are several performers I have yet to see that I would like to check off my list.

reading // The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien. I have yet to read Lord of the Rings (although I'm a HUGE fan of the films). I've heard that The Hobbit is easier to read than LOTR and with first film coming out later this year I figured I'd given Tolkien's books a try.

watching // The Olympics! Since they've started I've hardly watched a thing but today I've been on an Olympic watching binge.

anticipating  // Our Disney cruise! We hit double digits in our countdown last weekend. We still have to get our passports but those will be taken care of this week. 

laughing about // I did have a bit of a laugh after the end of the men's 10,000 meter run when they said that the USA has only won a medal in that event 3 times in the past 100 years. Not sure why but it struck me as funny.

listening to // The TV, again I'm on an Olympics binge.

eating // Eating, nothing. Drinking a Pepsi throwback. Headed out to dinner soon.

working on // A media kit for my blog/Youtube channel.

wishing // I could go to an Olympic games, certainly on my bucket list!
