My guilty pleasure

Meet my guilty pleasure
That's right. Josh Groban.
I. Love. Him.

I can't help it. ever since his first cd came out when I was in high school, I have loved him, his music..his hair :)

I remember the first time I ever heard his voice. My dad and I were in the music/movie section at Barnes and Noble, and this cd starts playing..and immediately stopped me in my tracks. At first I thought to my self..what is this, Andrea Boccelli? no...too good (no offense Bocelli fans..) It was enchanting- intoxicating- it was Alla Luce Dal Sole. I, of course, immediately purchased the cd. And listened to it non stop for months.

Mr Groban continues to make me swoon, most recently with his christmas cd and his song "Believe" from polar express( not so recent, I know...but it's ALMOST that time of year!) . I adore that song..Whenever we watch Polar Express( which is quite often after Thanksgiving)I always make El watch the credits so we can listen to it:) Sad? Yes. Neccecary? Yes.

My point is

Josh Groban guest starred on glee last month. This was before I had ever watched it.

And now- its nowhere to be found- not on, not on Hulu, not on ...I am so depressed rigiht now.

I had no idea

I'm sorry Josh. So sorry.

SO if any of you lovely ladies out there happen to have a recording of this particular episode for some CRAZY reason....PLEASE send it my way!!! I will give you my address, I will drive-even fly to your house to borrow it- I will give you a hug!

if not..I will just have to wait until season one comes out on dv..

until then..

I will continue to love Josh for his music.

"Cause I'm a rhinestone cowboy..and thats the end of it"

(if you know what I'm referring to...we have to talk..)

A tribute and a welcome

*Side note- isnt the sight of changing leaves just absolutely magical? every fall I feel as if I'm seeing it for the first time.its so exciting! one day the view out my window is all green and the next bright oranges, browns and yellows- I love LOVE love it!

First, I want to pay tribute to my silly little LG flip phone:

Almost all the photos in the last few posts (sans sickly post) were taken with that terrible, wonderful phone (the free phone that was forced upon me when we made the indevidable switch to verizon.) There was nothing special about this thing.. but goodness did it make some impressive pictures

like this

as well as my blog header :)

Now for a welcome...

(Find the dinosaur! ;) theres a story behind it, i promise!)

this one is much more impressive if you've met my dog..he'd take lovely pictuers if he would just.sit.still...

well thats it for now, Have a lovely, fantastic day and take lots of pictures to remember it by!

Today I am facing reality: I am sick. I was in denial yesterday. but the throbbing head, sore throat, earache, coughing and constant change in temperature.. I think that equals sick

so today, since I'm stuck at work and can't climb into bed and watch silly tv shows all day... I am going post- and its going to have a theme- comfort

6 more hours and I'll be home with the guy eatin' some thai-from-a-box.. then an old movie and apple cinnamon theraflu...

then off to sleeeep

I can't wait

quiet monday

So far it's a quiet monday..the weather outside is very ...peaceful to put it nicely- and its jumped from amazing 75 degree weather to about 55... but thats ok :)

Camping was amazing! sadly we didn't get to go hiking sunday- rain :/ but we made lots of good food, and cider- and made a couple of new friends

like this little guy:

he trekked all the way across our ropelights - it was pretty impressive. I called him germaine

I'll upload more camping pictures the meantime here's a pretty picture of our pepper plant

they're getting so big! to bad all this cold weather might stunt their growth a bit...

reason for excitement #1: My new cd!

Tuesday night we went to target- for a couple of reasons, one was to buy the lovely lovely Imogen Heap's new cd. Sadly ( and I was very sad) it wasn't there ...even though I went to the website to confirm that yes, it was in the store! silly websites.

jump to a couple-o hours later at home- Im doing something or other in the living room, the husband is in the office "cleaing out his inbox" ( he never checks his email..or his phone...thats why he married me- personal secretary ;) KIDDING!) I go in to say hi, and he tells me to check my email- i think he's forwarded me soemthign funny or financially important. nope- he's given me an itunes gift -yep- Imogen's new cd!!

its A-MA-ZING!!! you must check it out.

reason for excitement#2


I will bring back pictures :)

plus I have tomorrow off( work saturday..only 4 hours !) so I get to go shopping for camping-y stuff!:D
