It's a Beautiful Sunday Morning

It's a beautiful Sunday morning with a high of 75 degrees today, and it's still February!  I'm currently sitting on my porch drinking a second cup of coffee enjoying the slight breeze and the sunshine and giggling with excitement that I can wear my rainbow sandals today and not look like some crazy sandal wearing hippy that wears flip flops all year long...(yes, I'm one of those people). 

Unless there is snow on the ground, I will probably wear my rainbow sandals...that's just how I roll.

Anyways, one of my buddies at work shared a YouTube link with me the other day that was just amazing.  And sitting here looking at the beautiful sunshine makes me feel the need to share it...

I'd like to also take this time to remind everyone that life is precious.  Take advantage of every moment and let those you love the most know how much you love and appreciate them as often as possible. 

This little girl was 7 years old when she did this video.  Her voice will probably evoke a very emotional reaction in brought me to tears - but then again that's not that difficult.

I'm the same woman that cries like a baby during Extreme Home Makeover on ABC and has cried at a few commercials involving babies...

Yes, me.  I'm not so dead inside after all lol.  Even the all mighty smart a$$ Jessica with the repulsive male sense of humor actually has an overly sensitive and emotional side.  It's even harder for me to admit it out loud than for you to believe it, trust me!  :-)

Music, Sunshine & Technology

Well, two exciting things have happened in the last 24 hours.

My friend Heather and I went to a concert last night at the Lincoln Theatre in downtown Raleigh.  It was a band called Punch Brothers. 

Believe it or not I like Bluegrass music.  Yes, the same girl that can go from listening to gangsta rap, to country, to heavy metal in fifteen minutes, likes bluegrass. It was a great show!

I tried to use my blackberry to take a video of the performance but it did not sound all that well and the video quality was crappy.  So below I have included their performance on David Letterman a few months ago performing one of my favorite songs called Rye Whiskey.

It was a good night.  Although I must be getting old because by like 10:30 I was tired and ready for bed!  lol

Then this morning I awoke to my blackberry crackin' out on me.  It would not make or receive calls for some reason.  Then it kept freezing on me and I got fed up with it and took my rear end to the Verizon store to see what I could upgrade to.  To make a long expensive story short, I upgraded to the DroidX.  I love it so far although I'm having a hard time getting used to the touch screen.  I've been on the BB for so long that this new fangled technology is going to take some gettin' used to.  :-)

Although the iPhone did look pretty - I still liked the DroidX better.  I hated to be that indecisive annoying customer but I really was torn - but I think I made the best choice.

And to top it all off, the weather this weekend has been absolutely beautiful.  I wore capri pants and flip flops today...oh how wonderful....

All in all, a pretty awesome weekend so far.

Good music, beautiful weather, and a new toy to play with...giggitty giggitty
