Tombers and JM

Auburn's A-Day game was last weekend, as was the final rolling of the Toomer's Trees.  The block downtown was totally blocked off to traffic, but the masses of people still made getting around hard.  Judging from the trees, I think it's safe to say Auburn won the A-Day game.

I can't help but wonder how many trees were killed in order to produce that much toilet paper.  Oh, the irony.

so many people

The following Monday the trees were removed.  Once again, the block downtown was closed.

While I was walking to class, the trees' motorcade passed me.  I'm not joking when I say this dump truck/ hearse had a 4-car police escort, complete with sirens blaring.

The past Thursday, I made a very quick trip (< 24 hours) to Tuscaloosa to see John Mayer.  This concert was his first full concert in 3 years, since his vocal chord granuloma.  Our seats were on the very back row of the amphitheater, but John's voice was just as wonderful in the back.  Thanks to my zoom lens, I still managed to get some pretty good pictures.  (I learned my lesson after Maroon 5 at the BJCC, and snuck in my camera under Charles's jacket.  I feel I have redeemed myself.)  

Also, never put concert tickets in your back pocket and expect them to be there 15 minutes later when you're ready to enter the venue.  Thankfully, we found the tickets on the sidewalk close to the car, but we were both a little wound up by the time Charles spotted them.

Success Lately.

Took engagement pictures with our amazing wedding photographer.

Had a successful last AOII formal with these cool people.

A Braves win on opening day made for a great trip with sweet friends.

Last time to wear ritual whites. #alum

Found a house to live in next year. Arkansas, here we come.

Spent time with wonderful friends and family at our Around the House Shower.

And finished writing my capstone paper. Hallelujah.

Ben Again

Well after a Ben Rector concert hiatus (~1 year), I am proud to announce -- we're back together!!!

Yesterday, Charles and I went along with some other friends to brave the tornado watch and see Ben Rector at Workplay.  Let me just say that even after eight Ben concerts, the ninth was just as amazing.  Maybe it's just me, but he never gets old.  He played a couple of new songs (new album to be released this summer) and jammed a lot more than usual.  My only regret is that I didn't wear platform shoes -- concerts are the only time I wish I were taller.  Thankfully, Charles was able to take some photos from his higher altitude.  

{ good music + great friends = wonderful time }


A couple of weeks ago, my roommate Liz, Charles, and I went to see Maroon 5 with Neon Trees and Owl City at the BJCC.  I'm not a hardcore Maroon 5 fan, so I didn't have super high expectations for the concert, but boy was I blown away.  Adam Levine's falsetto is TO DIE FOR.  And seeing him live inspired us to start watching The Voice.  It's so bad it's good.

The unfortunate part was that the ignorant security lady wouldn't let me in with my camera.  I've taken my camera to concerts at the BJCC before with no hiccups -- so I'm not really sure what her problem was.  As a result, I don't have that many pictures.  For some reason my iPhone's camera isn't that great.

Easter Photo Reel

Philippians 3:10-12 
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. (NIV)

At the Evers house, Easter Sunday always includes a {very entertaining} photo shoot after the church service.  This year was no different.  And so, I give you, the Easter Photo Reel.
