I don't know about you guys, but anytime I see a singer, a band, or just any musician in general who's really amazing at what they do... I get a tad bit jealous. I think back to the times I took piano lessons and hated them so eventually I quit. I think about how I played the flute for seven years in band, but eventually quit that too. At least I still have my flute- sitting up high on the top shelf of a spare bedroom closet- of course. Wow, what I would give to go back and really practice a craft like that. To be absolutely amazing at a musical instrument or have a phenomenal voice- Oh! I'd give anything!
But since I can't go back and perfect those talents now, I absolutely appreciate great musicians like the ones in the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Jared and I got to see their all new show Friday night and it blew me away. I swear, they were thirty seconds into their first song and I leaned over to Jared and just said, "They. Are. So. Incredible." Their show goes on for two-and-a-half, almost three hours and it doesn't feel like it at all. I get so caught up in the music I barely realize time has passed at all! If you ever have an opportunity to see them, I highly recommend it. The ticket prices are absolutely worth it and they also donate a portion of all ticket sales to the military which is awesome.
But enough rambling... I'll let a few of these photos give you a sneak peek of what one of their concerts looks like. Music, lights, lasers, moving platforms and more. These photos hardly capture the entire evening, but it's the best I can do ;)
It was such a fun night out and even though we got home pretty late, I managed to get out of bed for a whole day of baking with Kayla and her family. She was sweet enough to include me with the other women in her family ;) Let's just say- I had some of the most delicious treats EVER that day and will definitely be sharing a recipe on Thursday with you all. Nothing says Christmas like putting on 10 pounds, right?!And you all know I couldn't let this blog post go by without mentioning a big 'ole WHODEY!!?!?! Our guys needed to redeem ourselves this week and that 30-0 score did the trick. ;)
Hope you all did something festive or fun this weekend- tell me about it!
