Unintended Hiatus

I’ve been gone for so long! I’m so very sorry! These last few weeks have been a whirlwind of CRAZY!

When I was in California I was lucky enough to share a Starkid experience with my friend C! I told her I bought general admission tickets when I really bought VIP tickets. I surprised her the day of the concert and told her about the VIP tickets. Needless to say, she was excited!

So here are some pictures! We had such a great time! I really can’t imagine not having spent this time with her. We used to just lay around on her bed or mine talking about everything, some days I really miss that. Most days I just miss having her within driving distance!

That’s us with all of the Starkids who were performing!

That’s me with Jim Povolo who is one of my favorite Starkids. Can you guess why? No, it’s not JSUT because he’s ridiculously attractive, it’s because he’s a tall guy! :) So what did we talk about? The fact that his ex-girlfriend from Montana had pet wolves. It’s a long story.

This picture is of me and Joey Richter. He’s such a nice guy!

That’s Joe Walker and myself! His outfit was HYSTERICAL. The whole concert had an archaeology vibe to it and he wore these super short khaki shorts!  Absolutely had me cracking up the whole time!

You can see Joe Walker’s shorts on the right!

Then I worked for a very long time (with some crafting!) Then it was time for a few days of birthday celebrations!

My birthday was this past Sunday June 10. I made a stop at the Starbucks in the morning and patiently waited for my aunt to text me the “all-clear.” My cousins are 6 and 9 years old right now and obsessed with surprising people on their birthdays!

I figured I’d play along and I played right into their hands. I thought that I would be working hard to act surprised by my cousins however I was completely floored by the fact that my mom and brother were sitting in the living room when I arrived!

We spent the past few days doing lots of things! We went out to eat, had fun with family, went to Holiday World, and I even made a stop at Trader Joe’s after I dropped my mom and brother off at the Louisville airport!

All in all, I was completely shocked and I had so much fun! It was a very good way to spend the past few days! Especially since the last two weeks I worked 81 hours! These upcoming 2 weeks I’ll be working 88 hours… Remind me not to overschedule myself again!

Don’t worry, amidst all of this crazy fun I have been crafting! I’ve been busy with yarn and floss (are you scared yet?) Within the next few weeks I’ll be trying to catch you guys up to speed on my crafting adventures!


SO Chelsea and I went to the SPACE tour concert after visiting Cincinnati and here are the pictures I took from the concert.

For those of you who aren’t Starkid fans, I hope that you’ll watch this clip of their musical A Very Potter Sequel and I hope you enjoy it!

WARNING: Has cussing and some sexual content, but is still hysterical. Not entirely suitable for young eyes and ears!

So the tour itself was wonderful!

We drove 4ish hours out to Cincinnati, OH and then waited in line for about an hour to get into the venue, Bogart’s.

This is me and Chelsea inside :)

Look, here are some pictures of during the concert!

Charlene Kaye & the Bright Eyes opened and she was marvelous!

The Starkid came on… in helmets! :)

Then they sang and joked!

Dylan Saunders (below) recorded the whole audience sing Happy Birthday to his mom. It was so sweet!

I didn’t get any pictures of Jim and the Povolos singing however, here are some lovely Youtube videos. These songs are child safe in my opinion. No cussing or sexual references.

The Holiday Club

This is the Moment

Now for the pictures of me and the Starkids! Chelsea and I waited about an hour and a half in the cold for this! It was sooo worth it though, we got to meet some awesome down-to-earth people. :)

I met Jamie Lynn Beatty!

Lauren Lopez! (Who plays some of the funniest characters!)

I met Cool Clark. I told him he was hunky, I think he took it well.

I met Joey Richter who was walking around as his mustached persona Rick Richter. This is my favorite picture, he was so funny!

This is Meredith Stepien and she was absolutely the sweetest person ever.

This is Brian Holden!

Charlene Kaye.

This is Dylan Saunders and we had a really nice conversation. I can’t remember what about exactly, but I remember teling him I thought his voice was beautiful and we chatted. I really just remember thinking ‘He was so nice!’ This is my second favorite picture!

This is Chelsea (you’ve seen her before!) and Joe Walker. I was able to get a picture of them together! There was no picture for me, but I did get a hug, so it works out.

We then packed up into my car and drove the 4ish hours back to Evansville. We arrived in Evansville about 3:30 am.

I’m lucky enough that we’re on break so I didn’t have to get up early the morning after, but poor Chelsea had work at 8! I have no clue how she survived work, but she did!

So as you can see from this absurdly long post, we had a totally awesome time at SPACE tour :)

I hope you enjoyed this post and all of my pictures!

Have a totally awesome day!
