Spring Cleaning the Workspace

My Husband & The Boss

I WANNA MARRY YOU  by Bruce Springsteen

"Little girl, I wanna marry you
Oh yeah, little girl, I wanna marry you
Yes I do
Little girl, I wanna marry you

Now honey, I don't wanna clip your wings
But a time comes when two people should think of these things
Having a home and a family
Facing up to their responsibilities
They say in the end true love prevails
But in the end true love can't be no fairytale
To say I'll make your dreams come true would be wrong
But maybe, darlin', I could help them along. . ."

My husband John and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary last week~~I decided to give myself a gift of not checking my mail or my boutique that day (and I apologize to the ladies who had sent inquiries for items for my delay in getting back to you.)  I like to take out our wedding album and reminisce about our wedding day~~our daughter loves to see them (although she still can't figure our why she is not in any of the pictures!!) 


Here we are. . .this is my favorite picture from our wedding. . .we didn't hire a big fancy, schmancy photographer.  I wanted photos that captured our celebratory spirit, no staged smiles for this couple!!!  So between my step-dad and a family friend we were able to get some great shots and I just love our wedding album.

Because we went to Disney in February, I thought we were going to have a low key anniversary this year. you know, romantic cards, a bottle of champagne & a fancy dinner at home.  Actually, that is a wonderful way to celebrate, isn't it?

We had all of the above, but my prince decided to get me "a little something extra" since I had been out of my perfume for quite awhile he went Macy's and bought it for me.  So sweet, isn't he?  I was thrilled to have it after so long without it.  I opened the box (which I did notice wasn't wrapped in the cellophane) took it out to put some on and tossed the little gold box onto the coffee table. . .after a minute my husband said: " You may want to check inside that box, dear..."

You will never imagine what I found inside. . .


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!TWO TICKETS FOR BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You must understand that if there is one brilliant songwriter & performer in all the world I have to see before I die it is Mr. Springsteen.  I almost saw him once in the mid 80S and a few weeks ago I made one of those woe~is~me comments to John that "I just know I'll never get to see him.  He's 58 years old and how much longer is he going to keep touring. . .blah, blah, blah". . .little did I know he took my words to heart and set out to land us some great tickets for the last stop on the Tour~~home of the New England Patriots~~Gillette Stadium!!!

Of course, someone paid the actual dollar amount on the tickets but for some reason there was a lot of Ticket Inflation by the time we paid for it!  LOL!  How great is my husband????  ( Despite a bit of jealousy of the first man I gave my teenage heart to!!)   

I do have some of his music on CD but my favorite way to listen to The Boss is like this:

Record_player_3 Yep, with my albums & my record player!!!!  Bruce Vintage Style!

Recordplayer2   My neighbor was throwing this away about 10 years ago and I was not having that one bit!   I just hope the needle never breaks~~do they even make them anymore????

So once the shock of this amazing gift wore off a bit I started thinking about. . .


A rock and roll concert on a hot Saturday night in August???  I'm thinking my brown cowboy boots, a vintage floral cotton skirt, a t shirt and my jean jacket???   Or maybe a vintagey floral cotton sun dress with my boots? I found this one that I thought was very sweet and summery   and I also really like this one!   What would you wear to a summer night concert?  Our Augusts are hot and steamy here in Massachusetts. . .but for once I can't wait!!
