And with a broken wing, she still sings

My little niece broke her arm last week falling off the monkey bars at school. :o( And the only thing she had to say about it was a) She didn't fall...she was trying to skip the first bar and jump to the second one and b) "Auntie, my cast is so UGLY!". Did I mention that my little Poopsie has been my princess-in-training since the day she was born? So me, being the amazing Auntie that I am, broke out all my scrapbooking bling and went to town with a Sharpie marker and some rub-ons. It's amazing what a little Glossy Accents and rhinestones will do for a 7 year old's attitude about breaking her elbow and fracturing her wrist. This is just the first's all she could sit still for at the moment. I'll be adding to this for sure.
In other news, I was on hand for the amazing Elton John concert! The hubs and I went as an early anniversary gift to each other (6 years this month!). Left both boys at home with a sitter for the first time. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa L. I could sit back and enjoy it far more this time around...saw him for the first time a couple of years ago and spent most of the concert choked up and emotional at the fact that I was actually there. So going again was more than awesome. Now I can check that off my "Bucket List". The pictures are less than spectacular as we had good seats but the camera can only do so get the idea, right?

I've been trying to think of what else I have on my list...going to Europe, more specifically seeing Culloden Field. Taking my kids to Disneyworld. Going on a cruise. Finding the Soup Nazi in New York and eating Crab Bisque. Eating a cupcake from Magnolia Bakery. There are other things...but those are just the ones that fly off the top of my head right now. Funny how most of my list either has to do with travel or food. My 2 fave things. I challenge you all to write a "bucket list"...and scrapbook it. I'll get back to you with mine. Maybe I should see the movie.
