Last night was  overcoming to say the least.
We went to the Winter Jam fest in Baton Rouge...

No big deal right?
Well, I don't do crowds very well. Petrified.
I look for the seat closest to an exit and farrrrrrr away.

See us wayyy up here?

We had floor seats waiting on us below.
There for the taking....could I overcome?

With 10 year old incouragemant I made it to the floor!

Oh so close...

To everyone.

But I guess its ok when you're right there with Francesca Battistelli!

Bless her heart.
She was sick as dog but gave it her all.
For that we were blessed.

And then there was this guy.

The David Crowder Band  is one of my all time favs...

He had me feeling like I was alone in that huge ocean of bodies.

Just me and my Lord.


Sweet lil Chris..

Don't cha wanna just hug him?

Well....some of us did!

She started digging through my purse like a crazed woman.

I need paper....quick MOM!

I don't carry paper..

I mean I have a tape measure, check book, lipgloss

Then I found something!!!

Oh can you only guess....Ha!

Chris August signed his autograph on a Martha Stewart paint chip!

You know you live in a decorating blog when....Ha

After the show we bought Madison CDs instead of paint chips.
We stood in a crowded line for over an hour for Francesca.
Thank goodness we were 4th in line :)

It was after midnight before we all hit the hay.

Check here to see if they will be in your neck of the woods.



  1. What a wonderful and blessed night. So glad you made it to the closer seats. So proud of you!

  2. Susie -

    I have goosebumps reading this because I too don't do crowds. Too lose yourself in music, in the Lord --

    Your Friend,

  3. Big kudos to you for overcoming your fears!

    ps - I have that same paint chip in my car right now! And Pink Graphite too :)

  4. I am terrified in a huge crowd but you are an overcomer...good for you! I LOVE DAVID CROWDER! AND HIS MUSIC!! Did you see the blog Kelly wrote maybe a year ago about meeting David Crowder in the airport? Got the funniest pic of him and Harper together. Harper was looking at him like "Who is the world is this guy?" It was so funny!

  5. My kiddos went to Winter Jam last year with my hubby. This year they get to go again (in March)with their youth group. You are a brave mom to do what you do.

    Winter Jam totally pumped my kids up for the rest of the school year and living out their faith! !

  6. So jealous you got to see DCB live... Love him...


  8. This looks like it was so much fun! But I don't enjoy crowds either -- I've always had this strange fear of getting lost and not being able to find my way back! Anyway, I'm glad you were able to enjoy the event and that it was a great time!

    I'm a new follower.


  9. So glad you all had a good time. I heard on KLOVE they were going to be in town, but I am a working gal and don't do well staying up past nine...so, I didn't make it there.

  10. My husband doesn't do crowds well either...he pulls through for the kids though. To tell you the truth I am getting to where I don't care for them much either. Looks like you had a good time and I am sure your daughter loved it! Funny about the paint chip but use what ya got right?

  11. Ha! I laughed when i saw you had a paint swatch in your handbag for him to sign... that would totally be me too. And you were very brave to go down closer, i totally get anxiety if i can't escape and always sit near the exit... nice to know there are others out there...


  12. Okay. Now I really want to go. : )

    "How He loves us...Oh, how...He loves us...."

    : )

  13. Oh, how fun. We went when they came to Tupelo. It was a blast. I loved the speaker Tony Nolan. I had never heard of him but he was powerful. We also love Kutlas. But like you, my favorite was the David Crowder Band.
    I am glad you overcame your fear and had a great time!!!

  14. Praise & worship music...just such a blessing! Lucky you to overcome and be so close.

    Glad you had such a great time.

  15. That looks like such a fun time! My hubby does not do crowds either and I find the more as time goes on, I could be fine with out them as well... Good for you for braving them!

  16. Winter Jam is happening today here but I just didn't want to wait in line all day. Maybe one day, I'll have the strength too. Love David Crowder too!

  17. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat a night!! You lucky Duck!!! DCB live must be amazing!!!

  23. “You can see the techniques of the knit on this style; Bandage Dress one day we will videotape the process of how our pieces are made. Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, Herve Leger Dresses they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist. Lubov, a former dancer, is a big fan of movement, so for her that signals the fringe-trimmed bandage dress.


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
