What I really wanted to share is her album, have you heard it? I love her voice, which sounds a lot different in English than French. There is something real and soulful that I really like about it. Have a listen, what do you think?
I have some posts up my sleeve, I just need to find the time to sit down and write. Don't give up on me, I'll have some new stuff up soon!

Monday night I went to a Rock the Vote concert featuring Santogold, Sheryl Crow and the Beastie Boys!! It was awesome to see the Beastie Boys at an intimate venue, although I wish I had been about a foot taller so I could see a little better. I got a closer look at Sheryl Crow and she was good, but the Beastie Boys really rocked! Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures because I was a nice, rule-abiding concert-goer (and partially because my camera is too bulky to sneak in my bra). I saw so many people taking pictures with iphones that it really made me want one!
This photo is the Beastie Boys at a stop at CPCC in Charlotte to get out the vote!
So go vote, early!

1. I have been hit by a car before while riding my bicycle (don't laugh)
6. I do not own an umbrella
7. Although always a hippie at heart, I used to totally look like one, with unshaven legs, arms, etc. and I saw my fair share of Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia Band, Phish and Widespread shows (doesn't make much sense that I don't like being barefooted, I know)
Since I'm new to the whole blogging thing, I don't really know seven people with blogs to tag, so I'll just tag the following:
You must tell 7 facts about yourself, juicy & strange facts, then tag 7 people at the end of your post with links- Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment for them on their blog

On Saturday we headed out on the subway to Greenwich Village, where we picked up a cupcake from Magnolia Bakery (the place on Sex and the City). Sorry, Magnolia, but the cupcakes were not good. You know how I am about cupcakes and although the place is cute, it wasn't worth the time or money.
On to Soho and more shopping...then to Chinatown for some real Chinese food and not so real Ed Hardy t-shirts, Tiffany jewelry, Ray-Bans, the list goes on. Sally in Chinatown:For dinner Saturday night we had reservations at Trattoria Trecolori. Another glorious meal with perfect service. I had Veal with Eggplant, Prosciutto, Tomato and Cheese (can't remember what type of cheese, but it was good). I was thinking about the hubby during this entire meal because I knew he would of loved it!
That evening we went and saw 'In The Heights' on Broadway. As if I haven't raved enough..this show was really, really good. To top it off, we met the entire cast afterwards and got all of their autographs.
Stay tuned for Part 2...
Tony-the husband. The love of my life. Although I knew him for a while before we started dating, it was almost as if one day I was shot with cupid's arrow. It happened to be the same day that he took me for my first ride on his new red Harley. The rest is history. He loves the outdoors, hunting and working out. He is such a good daddy and has even given in to wearing pink, a pretty dominant color around our house.
The oldest lil' darlin'. She is almost 7, going on 16. The quintessential girly girl- she loves all things cool! Her clothes have to perfectly match and she loves to sing and perform. Thanks to her YaYa, she now asks to go get mani/pedis. (We are in trouble) She takes ballet and recently started playing tennis and thank goodness, she loves school! She is a worry wart, like me.
Lil' Darlin' A or 1 (not because she is a favorite, but because she was born first) is 3. She loves to dance, climb, get into anything and everything and is a good little cuddle bug. When she was in my tummy, she moved constantly and that still hasn't changed. She has such a sweet personality, but has her moments of mayhem.
Lil' Darlin B or 2 is a charmer and 3 as well. She smiles an awful lot. But in definite Gemini fashion, she has a side that is a little devilish. She likes to keep her sisters in line by being the little mommy. She loves "polka-nots" (polka dots) and anything that has a tag.
Truman, aka TruTru is Tony's balance in our house full of girls. He is truly the sweetest, most mild-mannered dog.

"October is crisp days and cool nights; a time to curl up around the dancing flames and sink into a good book" -John Sinor
I know I am a little late to the game on this book, but it is sooo good that I had to write about it. 'Twilight' by Stephanie Meyer is my Book Club's pick for October and it really is a guilty pleasure. It is not the type of book that will generate a ton of enthralling discussion, but it is a book that leaves you longing for more. I have had to hold off on the second book in the series just because I know I will be useless until I have it finished. So, if you haven't read it, go get it, I promise you will not be disappointed.

This election season feels like it has been going on for years. But, the time is drawing near and if you live in North Carolina you only have a few more days to register to vote. Maybe the debate tonight will pump you up to head to your Board of Elections office, local library, DMV, wherever, just go!
