Wife2Wife: Favorite Couple Moment of the Summer

Today I am linking up with Kelly and Cheltee for Wife to Wife. 

What was your favorite "couple moment" from this summer?

I would have to say my favorite "couple moment" from this summer was when My husband and I went to Mexico for our  10th anniversary. (It was actually in the spring but it was summer to me)

 We had an amazing time just enjoying the weather, the beautiful sights and each other..

Tattoo Talk

Today I am linking up with Allie from talesofatwentysomething for....

I have one tattoo that I got in December of 2011 with my husband when he went to get a memorial tattoo of his grandfather who had passed away a few days earlier. I had wanted one for a while but I am so picky I had no idea what to do. 

So I looked online for ideas and found several I liked...  So I took some pictures of what I wanted and the artist did an AMAZING job. Of course my husband made me go first.... 

This is on my left shoulder. And I LOVE IT!! 

Here is my husbands - It is his grandfathers initials 
After we left he thought about getting the Italian flag under it. Since his grandfather was Italian.  

And now with my Grandmother passing away I want another one to memorialize her.. 

I was thinking about this.. The one on the left 

It is similar to the one I already have but now I just need to figure out where to put it.. 
On the other shoulder, my wrist, my ankle??  I just don't know... 

I'll update you if I actually get it done...

Last night I learned that my grandmother passed away. She has been dealing with Alzheimer's for about 15 years, and has been in a nursing home for about 7-8 years. She was living in Indy and I had not seen her since February 2012. She did not know who I was and although it was hard, I understood. I like to think deep down she knew me. 

My poor husband was walking the dog when I got the call and he came back to me hysterically crying in the hallway. I scared him and my dog, who went and hid under the table.. Sorry Gracie! 

As much I know she is no longer in pain, it still hurts. 

I want to write a post about memories I have of her.. But right now I just can't... 
Maybe in a few days... 

Until Then.....

Last night 9-11 my husband and I went to see my favorite band Muse. If you have not heard of them you are missing out. I first saw them and an opening band for U2 in 2009. I usually don't like opening bands but these guys are AMAZING. The lead singer is an amazing guitarist, song writer and singer. (and engaged to Kate Hudson) But what really made me fall in love with them was the bassist... (yes I do sometimes base things on how cute someone is...Sorry....) I have mentioned him before in posts but here he is again.... Christopher Wolstenholme

So Steve and I got to the Verizon Center in DC around 545 and headed over to the GA line. It was suuuuper long already... SO once we finally got inside and got our wrist bands we headed to the floor. I was concerned that we would be pretty far back and that I would not be able to see my future husband Chris. BUTTTTTT everyone was trying to get near the left side of the stage or the middle.. So I we got in front right at the gate in front of Chris!!! I was soooo excited.... 
So after the opening band Cage the Elephant was over we waited for the show to start.  
My husband got some amazing pics of Chris... I was too busy staring at him the whole time!!! 
 Matt Bellamy
 Dominic Howard
 See the shiny thing in the middle of his mic stand... You will see it later.... 
It was an amazing concert and I love every minute of it.. Except the drunk girl who tried to push her way up in front... Who might have been elbowed by me when she tried to push me out of the way... Sorry not Sorry..  I even got a guitar pick of Chris'. 

But most importantly.... That shiny thing from before.....Chris at the end of the concert threw his harmonica to ME! I ALMOST lost my mind...... 
Here is the video of it.. You have to go to 4:48 unless you want to watch this whole video. I can't get it to upload the video so here is the link..  

It was my 7th Muse Concert and I can't wait for the next one!!!
