Dinner didn't take as long as anticipated, and we arrived in South Jordan waaay too early. We spent the next hour sitting on a couch in Pier 1 and strolling South Towne Mall. By the time we finished killing time we were late. Awesome. We got there at the end of the first act and I quickly directed us to the wrong seats. Awesome again. I thought it was funny that the first act (who I had never heard of and whose name I can't remember) said they weren't taking requests because they wanted to play songs that would best "set a mood." In reality I think he knew that no one would be able to request a song because we all had no idea who he was. Regardless, his music was chill and fun to listen to. Colbie Caillat was up next and was really good. Not the world's greatest entertainer, but the music was super chill and fun to listen to. See if you can find her.
Becca seems to think that I was drooling over Colbie, but really I was simply masking my immense man crush on John Mayer. Seriously, he was incredible. Not the best vocals of any artist out there, but GEEZ, he can play the guitar like I've never heard. He played a few old songs, some of his new stuff, a couple of covers and some blues that I haven't really heard much of. It was all amazing, but the blues stuff was by far the most impressive. Even from our seats 6 miles away, we could see some of the fret work when he'd really get going. It was seriously incredible! He was pretty entertaining as well and doesn't seem to have any lingering fears of performing, or speaking whatever is on his mind for that matter. After nearly every song he reminded us of how much he enjoyed playing the guitar and how amped he was on Red Bull. He also let us all know that he had tweaked his unmentionables after a particularly exhuberant guitar power jump. Two F-bombs and a couple of $3.50 bottles of water later, I was headed home with my wife, my mind still lingering on an old crush rediscovered. I love you John... Dynomite concert!
Oh, one more note on concerts in general... You know that one couple who never seems to realize that they are absolutely the only ones standing in the entire amphitheatre, swaying back and forth in their own little music land? Well, here is a picture of that couple and our view for 50% of the concert. If you happen to run into them at some future concert make sure you lob a few profanities at them from me... Don't hold back... Thanks, I owe you one...

I feel I must warn Travis and other husbands out there that they must be REALLY romantic the first week or two after the last book comes out or there will inevitably be hell to pay for not living up to Edward Cullen :)

This lady sat in front of us. She was actually really, really nice. Mohawk with tatoo at the base. Special attention should be paid to the braid extending from her ear to the ground. So, to the nice Mohawk lady, if you ever stumble upon this. We enjoyed sitting near you. I think you're a fantastic person. Also, the picture doesn't do it justice, but that was the biggest Great Dane I have ever seen sitting in front of her. The dog came up to my chest when it was sitting. Amazing...

So I have decided I have a pet peeve that drives me crazy when other people do. Travis and I went to go see Wall-E the other night (and of course went to the late movie to avoid the flocks of annoying children. I know I know I'm having a kid but I can't really stand other people's kids? weird I know). Anywho I can't stand it when people think something is just so hilarious that they have to laugh out loud really hard and then nudge the person next to them and EXPLAIN what was so funny. It's Wall-E!! This movie is made for kids who need booster seats in the theater. We all understand what was funny. So tone it down a little so the rest of us can enjoy the movie without wanting to slap you and your girlfriend silly. Oh I feel better now. haha
On a more positive note I did think the movie was really well made and I love that pixar is so genius that they can make you fall in love with an old dirty non-talking robot in the first 2 minutes of watching. Love it.
Anyway one last final comment. I want everyone to know that I am not totally cold-hearted. I do love SOME kids. Like my niece, nephews (Jackson included), and REALLY good looking children. haha.

"A man took his pregnant wife to the hospital to give birth. The doctor told them that they'd developed a new machine and asked if the couple would like to try it out. The machine could take some of the pain of childbirth from the mother and give it to the father to ease the mother's burden.Well, they thought that was a good idea, and decided to give it a try. The doctor initially set the machine on 10 percent, telling the man that even 10 percent was probably more pain than he'd ever experienced. But the husband was surprised at how little pain he was feeling, and asked the doctor to raise the level.The doctor increased it to 20 percent, and when the man still felt fine, he raised it to 50 and finally 100 percent.After it was all over, the man stood up, and stretched a little. Both he and his wife felt fine, and they shortly left the hospital to take the baby home.It was then that they found the mailman dead on their doorstep."
HA! Too funny! Just kidding, really, if there's anything I've learned from the first weeks of Bec's pregnancy, it's that I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy (but yet I wished it on my wife...what's that tell you?)! Seriously, I don't know how she puts up with the constant sickness. I try to be "supportive" and all that good husband stuff, but find it hard to do sometimes. For example, the other night she was up till 7 in the morning...doing her pregnant thing over the toilet. Yeah, I was feeling really supportive and hanging in there with her. Then 4 in the morning hit and I was like, "Nahh...she doesn't really want me in there holding her hair anyways!" Haha...So, it's been a ride for sure...hopefully second trimester is better, because I'm tired of her spending more time with the bed and bathroom than she does with me!
So, Bec, why don't you take it like a man? Haha... Just kidding...
(Do all the pregnant women out there now hate me?)

Ever since we got married, Bec and I have talked about starting a blog so that we keep up with everyone and let people know what's going on with us. Now, I've already brought shame to our household by admitting in the second sentence that this is Travis typing and not Becca. A clarification...NO, I DID NOT SET THIS BLOG UP! I didn't open the account, I didn't choose the colors, I didn't do anything. Becca did it all. But, it took her hours... she's spitting fire after hours of figuring this out while I watched The Price is Right and the Olympic Trials. So, she made me promise that I would help and post from time to time. Little did I know that meant the first post ever...
So, to all you ladies out there...promise me one thing... NEVER TELL YOUR HUSBAND THAT I PARTICIPATE IN THIS BLOG! If I find out that you use me as an excuse to get your husband's help with your blog I will immediately shut down our blog and send a virus to yours. Deal? Good...
This week's news...WE'RE PREGNANT! The little alien is due January 31st. We heard the heartbeat. It was awesome. I wanted to barf. More to come.
Thanks for stopping by!
