Rock It On Out, January!

It's still my January. 
Sleep is coming soon.
 I want to remember the first month of 2012, while gearing up to give a *ready as I'll ever be* welcome to February.

THANK YOU so much for all your happy wishes on my last post!! <3

And, THANK YOU, January.
You added more lessons to my collection.
I truly learned from you.

Our Anniversary celebration was just the right mix of simple and spontaneous.

A late afternoon food fest over a round of our favorite martinis...


Last week, Steve found out one of his favorite bands, TOOL (yea, we have such similar music taste), was coming to our area.  He felt guilty asking to go during our anniversary weekend.  Come on now...He has endured plenty of twangy-twang-hee haww concerts with me. Still, he needed a little push to buy the tickets.  So, I got Muffin to help me out.  We sent this right on over to him and knew he'd be unable to resist.

Muffin says - *Do it, Dad!! TOOL Rocks!*

And, so we went.
It makes me happy to see him happy.

True story - it took me about 11 tries before I could figure out the difference between *rock on* and *surf's up!*

It was loud.  It was full of flashes of light and clouds of smoke.  It was full of all types of decked out peeps.
There was a spider crawling on Steve's shoulder before the concert started.  I pointed it out to him as calmly as possible and he danced a dance I will never forget.
Once the show began, Mr never sat down once.  He sang every word. (even if I couldn't understand what they were saying half the time.)
Like I said - it makes me happy to see him happy.

We weren't far from Atlantic City...so after a rockin' good time, we found some rest and relaxation.

I realized how hungry I was once that guacamole wouldn't stop starin' at me in the elevator.

We did the healthy thing, and ordered burgers and steak fries at 2am.

And after a good night's rest, we were headed  for a bit of sun and some down time.

Mr is not naked.

I want a hot tub.

A chilly stroll on the beach.

A hot pink sunset.

Happy 3 years.

totally sportin' lipstick on my teeth here. Oops!

Atlantic City, we love you.


The kitty portion of this post is brought to you by - Little Miss Muffin and Burger King.

Muffin loves her a good straw.

She speaks to it.  Tries her best to draw it closer.

Ouch!! That's my ear!!

Ouch!! That's my nose!

That's it! You're not too smart for me!

Okay, maybe you are.  Lemme take a step back.

Woahhh, Muffin...simmer down, girlfriend!

Watch the video to see what happens next.


Fluffy Rockin' Lovin',

We have these skinny cow ice creams here and I eat them, soemtimes, too many of them truthfully. When I go to the freezer, the first animal to meet me is OSCAR my black and white. I open the ice cream, take a bite, rest my arm at the elbow on my table. Oscar helps himself to licks of my ice cream. Then I will say, mommy's turn and he'll pull back. Then I'll say Ock turn. And he begins to lick his vanilla again.

Now, milk shakes, yogurt, he will take his paw, put in the cup or paper bin and then stick it in there and grab some, lick his paw clean. looks at me and doe s it again. Of course with this case, I know i'm done eating it so he's free to paw away.

Now the concert, I wish I lived nearer to you. Hubs would go with your man & I'd totally take in a concert or more with you. hehehe

Too cute this post. Hugs.

hehehehe you get excited about pooping too. That is awesome. I text Ryan and brag when I am!

Looks like you had one amazing anniversary!! Fun concert, good late night food, walks on the beach... sounds like paradise to me! I myself am a rock music fan, but not a tool fan. I totally get going to make your man smile!
I LOVE the picture of the rocker kitty hahha. You are so clever. You would be the funnest person in the world to get text messages from bahaha.
My kitty spaz is the SAME way with straws!! It's so funny. We have to keep an eye on our drinks at all times. I just give him straws as toys a lot too. He's the only one out of all our cats that loves them. It's so cute how they have their own personality!
Ohhh and coors light=my fav. Look at those icey blue mountains.. yummmy! I almost forgot what it's like to get a burger and a beer until I saw your picture!

Everything about this post makes me merry. Thank you for sharing! Your anniversary looked amazing and I adored every aspect of the food posted. I want a big, fat, juicy burger and fries right now, in fact. Mmm. A Martini too!! You both seem to be meant for one another.

mag said...

I am sitting here thinking how much AGAIN I realize we have in common, and now how much our HUSBANDS have in common. SO how about next time Tool is around, we all get together? hahaha. Sounds like you had a fabulous time.

I think about you every day! I am excited and anxious to hear how things go this month. I am praying for you both and can't wait to see how everything plays out. You are amazing and you deserve all the happiness in the world.

Thanks for your kind words and encouragement this month, and every other month before that as well. You are such a great friend :)

Happy Friday!
Enjoy your weekend!!!

It looks like you had such a great time! My bf and I don't have similar taste in music at all (he likes metal), bit I go with him to the shows because I know it makes him happy.

I found you through the Friday blog hop and thought I'd stop by to say hi! Please check out my blog as well if you get a chance.

Happy anniversary to you two!!! Looks like you had an amazing time, especially getting to see Steve's spider dance. Lol! That must be your good karma for going to the concert with him. :)

Jenn said...

Hey there hon! I just read over several of your recent posts to catch up, and as always, they tug at my heart and make me smile at the same time. I loved reading about your wedding and how wonderful it was...and how in the midst of all the craziness that usually surrounds weddings, you were able to see what was really important and what truly mattered. Beautiful!

Oh, and your cat is hysterical...although you probably already know that! LOL

Hugs to you!
