WOW. Last night was AMAZING!! We were lucky enough to attend an incredible concert by probably my biggest musical hero... Josh Groban!!! This was Mike's first one ever and my 3rd time. I will hopefully continue the tradition of going to every one of his concert's here in Utah. It was seriously outstanding!
A few months ago, I was at my parent's house watching my nephew Kayden and the TV happened to be on. It was LIVE with Regis and Kelly and their special musical guest was Josh Groban. I was of course, awe struck! I watched the whole episode and at the end of it, it promoted his upcoming tour 'Straight to You'. I instantly got on the computer to look up his concert dates. Low and behold, he was coming to Utah and the tickets were going on sale in 15 minutes!! I went ballistic! I sat there and refreshed the ticket office screen until it let me buy my tickets. I got 4 of them and they were AMAZING seats! Best ones yet!! Luckily, when I called to tell Mike while he was at work, he wasn't too upset that I bought them! It was quite a splurge but I used the rest of my Christmas money on them so I didn't feel too guilty! I have the best hubby ever!
My parents went with us and we had a great time. We went to Olive Garden for dinner before the concert and enjoyed just talking and being with each other. The minute he walked in the Delta Center, I about fell over! It was SO COOL!! He had a second stage that was right in front of us! I could see the sweat on his brow, AWESOME! His voice just melts my heart. It is so rich and so full. I had goosebumps the entire time! He is just so talented. The set was outstanding and they did a lot of light effects that just put the cherry on top of such a wonderful concert. He sang for 2 straight hours and I could have stayed for many more. I'm so glad Mike went with me and
so happy that he enjoyed it too.

Last Saturday (August 6th), we went to Lagoon! My sister, her family and some friends went the week before but didn't end up using 2 of their 'bounceback passes' so they gave them to us! We got in for $10 each! It was a total blast! It was super hot outside but we had fun. I made a tasty chicken salad sandwich picnic lunch with some treats to go with it. We both haven't been to Lagoon since Jr. High! There were tons of fun, new rides that we loved. Our favorite by far was Wicked! Awesome ride! Thanks Jami for helping us go for so cheap!

Yesterday, Mike and I went down to the Salt Lake Temple and attended an endowment session. It was so amazing! This was my first time for a live session and Mike's second time. I loved walking through it and looking at the amazing structures and architecture inside. I felt like I was in an old museum. The spirit there was so strong and I can't wait to go again! We are SO blessed to have so many temples around us.
A few weeks ago, my mom and I drove up to Brigham for my grandpa's birthday. We made the traditional stop at Maddox before we went to the cemetery. On the way there, we drove past the Brigham City Temple. A few days before, they are put up the angel Moroni and it looked incredible! I know my mom is sad that her father couldn't see it being built but we know he is happy with my grandma and is watching down on us daily. I can't wait for that temple to be completed and to go with my family. That will truly be an amazing experience!
