Fall is here



My favorite season is fall. It is chilly but not cold like winter. I love the fall colors and fall activities.

I have set some goals for fall.

  • take pictures of the leaves changing color
  • rake some leaves and jump into the pile because you are never too old to jump into a pile of leaves
  • create a photo collage of pictures with fall colors
  • pick out a pumpkin
  • go apple picking
  • bake an apple pie

Weekend in Photos Sept 13-15


I have been wanting to do a whole weekend in photos for a while now. I decided to set a goal to do one when I went to Cleveland to visit my family.

We had a great weekend.

  • On Friday night – we went to my niece’s back to school dinner at Olive Garden. She picked the restaurant. After dinner, we did some shopping at Target.
  • Saturday morning – My nephew had his first soccer game.
  • Saturday Evening – I went to Rocky River Park to take pictures of Lake Erie.
  • Sunday afternoon – we went to the Cedar Valley Settlers Celebration & Music Festival where they had things set up to learn about the settlement in the pioneer days.

NKOTB, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men


NKOTB, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men

August 3, 2013

Schottenstein Center

Columbus, Ohio


A week ago I went to see NKOTB, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men in concert. I had spent the day with my family cleaning out my stepfather’s house for 6 hours. I was extremely tired but after all the hard work I thought I deserved it.

I talked someone into dropping me off. I arrived just before 6:30 which is when the doors opened. I found the VIP Nation table to pick up my ticket which came with a cute NKOTB tote bag and a speaker.


I was so excited to see NKOTB again. I never got to see them back in the day. Either their concerts sold out or it was on a school night. I finally got to see them after they reunited. On November 10, 2008. I flew into Memphis, TN on the Sunday before to spend the week with my dad. The next day my dad drove me to St. Louis, MO. I also saw them 4/3/09 with 5* in Columbus, OH; 6/27/2009 Cincinnati, OH; 7/24/11 Columbus, OH

I was so excited to see 98 Degrees. I had always listened to their music.

Doors opened at 6:30pm. Boyz II Men was on at 7:30pm. 98 Degrees was on at 8:05pm.

NKOTB began at 9:00pm. Donnie asked if we were ready for the next 2 hours.
