Pizza and Gymnastics

22 08 2008

Trader Joes is one of my favorite places to go, even if I don’t have to buy anything, but then to add their pizza dough just makes it that much better. For only $1.50 I bought a bag of dough that made at least 2 mini pizzas.

James and I decided to have some friends over to make pizzas and watch the underage Chinese gymnasts rip the gold from the qualified Americans. Not bitter or anything!

Jill and Anthony, Sarah (James’ GA), and Matt came over and we all created our own pizzas. Anthony was the king of Calzones. While mine just wouldn’t cook and when it finally did, it was a little burnt. But it was a great night of fun and laughter.

The move from California to Arizona has been made an easier transition by these people. I look forward to getting to know them better and sharing life together with them.


Colbie and John…. Yay Yah!!!

So last night, Ruth and I went to our first concert in Phoenix.  We saw Colbie Caillat and John Mayer at the Cricket Pavilion.  The concert was pretty awesome.  We went with our friends the Funk Master, Kristen and her little sidekick Justine.  Surprisingly it wasn’t too hot out that night.  I think Ruth was more excited about seeing Colbie rather than John Mayer.

I think she sung every Colbie song along with Kristen.  True fans right there.  I personally enjoyed watching John Mayer.  I have never really been a big fan of him but watching him on the guitar was pretty impressive.  He ripped it all night long.  He ended up playing for about two hours and it only felt like a half hour.  He had the crowd at his finger tips.  It was great.  Then out of nowhere he busted out Free Fallin by Tom Petty, the crowd went crazy.  Then as he came back for the encore he busted out a little old school rock, Sweet Child of Mine.  It was great.  The man for sure has some skills.    




















So if you ever get a chance to go see John Mayer in concert, I would definitely say go.  If you appreciate a solid musician, this is the man to see.  Not only does he sing, but he whales on the guitar.
