Carrie Underwood - Carnival Ride

So I'm totally not qualified to review a cd - but I'm just so excited for Carrie Underwood's new cd - Carnival Ride. I will admit that I was late to work today because it was just released today and I had to stop at Target on my way to work and buy my copy. (And why does Target not open until 8am? I don't think I ever knew that.) So right now, it is 10:30 am and I have listened to the cd 2 1/2 times already! I really like it so far - I can't wait to not be at work so I can actually listen to the words and find my favorites. But I do have to say - even if you don't like country, you really should listen to "So Small." Go to CMT and watch the video. I heard it several times on the radio, but I didn't really catch the meaning of the song until I saw the video. It really hit home with me - as I'm sure that it will for most people. (Yes, I'm one of those crazies who are totally affected by music!!)

Oh yeah, I forgot about this blog!!

Ok, I haven't really forgotten, but I have been completely addicted to food blogging. My food blog - Taste and Tell - has taken over my life. What does it say about a person when what they had for dinner is the most interesting aspect of their life??

So, yeah - here Josh and I are almost exactly 8 months after our last post on this blog. And what do I have new to say about our lives? Hmmmm.......maybe this is why I haven't posted!!

The most exciting news is that my dream of being an entrepreneur is getting closer and closer every day. I came up with an idea of a scrapbooking website quite awhile ago, and well, let's face it - it's not the first business idea I have come up with. I'm good at coming up with ideas - bad at actually following through. This time, although it has taken quite awhile, I am actually doing something about my idea. Thanks to my brother-in-law (who is giving me a screaming good deal, and I hope to be able to re-pay one day) the website is up. Now is the hard part - getting the word out on a VERY limited budget. So, if you are remotely interested in scrapbooking, check it out! Find it at www.scrapifieds.com. (And by the way, if anyone is wondering when we are going to start having kids, all you have to do is help us out by spreading the word about Scrapifieds so I can quit my job and work from home so I can be a mom!!)

Another thing I am really looking forward to is December 9th. Josh and I will be taking a trip to Vegas to see Celine Dion. And believe it or not, Josh is the one who suggested it as a combined his birthday/my birthday/anniversary trip. I've always wanted to go see this show, but never thought I would be able to get Josh to go with me. We really lucked out as well, because since her show only runs through the end of the year, we were afraid we would not be able to get tickets. I tried for 3 days before finally getting 2 of the cheapest tickets (which aren't really that cheap at about $100 bucks each!!) A few days later, I received an email from Ticketmaster saying that all the tickets were sold out. I'm so glad that we got the tickets when we did, because I would not be going if I had to pay the rate that the ticket scalpers charge!!

I'm going to try to keep this better updated - even though I don't know of anyone that actually reads it!
