Summer To Fall Wallet

I don’t switch out my wallets as often as I do my bags.

But, since fall is here I switched over to my black Lily Avenue Kieran!

Love her and yes I have the same wallet in different colors!

Steve Jobs Movie

I know I’m a year late, but watched this movie over the weekend.

They try to make Steve Jobs look like a horrible person.

But just thinking about all the joy he has brought to millions of people…….how could he be?

The ending scene, and the music “Grew Up At Midnight” had me misty eyed.

U2 Played In Vegas

On Friday 9/23/16 U2 played at the iHeartRadio Music Festival.

Back when the tickets went on sale, I looked into going but one ticket face value was more than $800.

To me I wanted to save for a fullU2 tour.

To be honest I didn’t want to sit through the other horrible music to see my boys, and I thought their would be a chance that they would cancel.

Well, when Friday night rolled around I REALLY WISHED I was in Vegas.  I blame the internet.  Facebook and Instagram was full of fans that were there!

Here’s what the lucky fans got to hear!

Desire

Vertigo

Elevation

Beautiful Day

Pride

One

Every Breaking Wave

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

Hopefully they will be back on tour in 2017!!!!

U2 Turns Forty

good night phoenix night 2

good night phoenix night 2

U2 was created forty years ago today.

It was Larry Mullen Jr. that gets the credit.  He posted a note at his high school looking for other musicians to start a band.

The rest is history!!!

I don’t know how I can put into words how I feel about this band!

I’ve been a fan since 1983!!

I’ve been lucky to travel around the world to see my favorite band!!

Just last year I saw them eight times.  Twice in Phoenix, four times in Boston and twice in Ireland!

Before the internet I’ve lined up in person to buy tickets.  Have slept on the sidewalk in front of the Orpheum in Boston to buy tickets too!  I even called ticketmaster or whatever it was back in the day on a rotary phone!!  LOL!

I’ve met some pretty cool U2 fans over the years.  I always say that U2 fans are the nicest!

The music!  I’ve gone into Harvard Square for the midnight release back when they used to do that, before iTunes!

My iPod is full of U2 music that I listen to constantly.  My earbuds are in 90% of the time at work and that is 100% U2 music!

When a tour is announced, one of my friends teases me.  He says that the crazy U2 fan is about to be unleashed!  It’s true.  Once ticket sales are announced I plot and scheme what shows I want to go to and how I’m going to get tickets.  It’s all I can think about!!!!!!!  Then once the tickets are ordered the trip planning starts.  Research, research and more research!

The concerts are amazing!!!!  Every one is special to me!!  They fill me with so much happiness and hold me over through non tour times!!

So many of U2’s songs still give me chills.  EVERY TIME.  Bad, One, With Or Without You, Iris, Every Breaking Wave, Where The Streets Have No Name and so many more.

So thank you.  Thank you U2 for the music that keeps me happy, and for the journeys I’ve been able to take to see you!

The Year We Turned Forty

the-year-we-turned-40

This is the third book I’ve read by these authors!  Love their writing style and have loved all their books.  Looking forward to their next book too!

I can totally see this book made into a movie !

From Amazon:

Jessie loves her son Lucas more than anything, but it tears her up inside that he was conceived in an affair that ended her marriage to a man she still loves, a man who just told her he’s getting remarried. This time around, she’s determined to bury the secret of Lucas’ paternity, and to repair the fissures that sent her wandering the first time.

Gabriela regrets that she wasted her most fertile years in hot pursuit of a publishing career. Yes, she’s one of the biggest authors in the world, but maybe what she really wanted to create was a family. With a chance to do it again, she’s focused on convincing her husband, Colin, to give her the baby she desires.

Claire is the only one who has made peace with her past: her twenty-two year old daughter, Emily, is finally on track after the turmoil of adolescence, and she’s recently gotten engaged, with the two carat diamond on her finger to prove it. But if she’s being honest, Claire still fantasizes about her own missed opportunities: a chance to bond with her mother before it was too late, and the possibility of preventing her daughter from years of anguish. Plus, there’s the man who got away—the man who may have been her one true love.

But it doesn’t take long for all three women to learn that re-living a life and making different decisions only leads to new problems and consequences—and that the mistakes they made may, in fact, have been the best choices of all…
