I got free tickets to attend Canadian singer extraordinaire CELINE DION the other night. While not usually my music of choice, she did sing extremely well, and her power ballads were amazing. I particularly liked I'm Your Angel (the song she did with R.Kelly) . Obviously, the controversial R&B singer was not there, but she had one of her backup singers do a great job. It was the wife's favourite concert of all time. She practically knew all the lyrics of the old songs! Celine finished off the concert with My Heart Will Go On. Video to come??
The little one got her hair cut again:
I borrowed Guitar Hero Aerosmith from my friend. I didn't know that my progress from the time I rented it would still be saved. I finished the game on HARD!
We played some of our former team members from the past two years (currently in the 9th and 10th grades). Our team put up a fight, and lost narrowly by a few points each game. We did, however, beat the other two grade 10 teams afterwards. Tomorrow, we'll be at another two day tournament. We'll see how we do!
So we're off to Portland this weekend! I absolutely love these little getaways to the States. They definitely give us something to look forward to. We were able to priceline the Westin in downtown Portland for a very good price. We're bringing the dog, too. We should have some good photos, since the weather is quite nice for this time of year. Unfortunately, the Canadian dollar is doing absolutely awful: 84 cents US!! This is the worst it's been in nearly three years. That just means we'll be focusing less on buying stuff and more on relaxing and photography.
If you have sung any praise and worship songs in the past decade, you've definitely sung a song written by Chris Tomlin. He has written popular songs such as Forever, How Great is our God, and Holy is the Lord.
David Crowder, another popular Christian artist, with more of a rock background.
The Passion movement had a concert here last night. Vancouver was stop 13 of their 17 city worldwide tour. It was truly awesome. Tickets were available for free! We were lucky enough to run and get FIRST ROW SEATS! I also rushed to the VERY FRONT of the stage area.
Just some interesting things found at Value Village. I rarely "shop" there, but I was lucky enough to find almost new hockey pants for $10! I was going to buy new ones the next day for $80! Too bad I got injured in my first game. Don't know how many weeks I'm out for, but it still hurts to walk. No physical activity for at least 1 more week! These Prada shoes were only $12!!! Too bad they were a bit big. I've ALWAYS wanted a pair of PRADAS!
