We Drove All Night

First we were going, then we weren't. Then at the last minute I told my Mom we're going to see Celine!! And we didn't look back.

Our drive down to Indy was awesome and Ivy slept the whole way. We braved what felt like negative 50 degrees from the parking lot to the stadium with Ivy bundled in the sling (as my Mom prayed Oh, God dear Jesus let us make it) and this is what adventures in babywearing is really like.

Ivy was just as much as an attraction as Celine. But once the show started no one could take their eyes off the stage.

She is everything you'd imagine- beautiful, flawless, and personable- I loved the moments that she just chatted with us. And I don't think she's even capable of hitting a wrong note.

My mom was in awe. She couldn't find her words and said I hope she sings that...that... boat song!

And she did. The last song of the encore was My Heart Will Go On.

But my favorite part of the whole entire night (and worth every minute of our drive there and back, the arctic temps, and losing a contact during the third song which meant I watched the rest of the show one-eyed) was during Because You Loved Me. I got a little choked up and tapped my Mom on the shoulder. And told her I loved her. And I will never ever forget that ever.

Call it cheezy and predictable, whatever you want. That was our moment.

I love you, Mom.

There's still time- take your Mom or a loved one to see Celine. You'll never forget it.

We're Taking Our Chances!

Ok, sooooo it may be negative 5 degrees outside and roads all icy and windy conditions that only a crazy person would want to drive in... but my Mom and I are NOT going to miss Celine Dion's Taking Chances Tour in Indianapolis tonight. I mean, how could we???? This is one of my Mom's dreams, to see Celine. When I was offered tickets by One 2 One Network , I knew immediately that I must take her!

I65, we do not fear you!

We'll be leaving in just a few minutes. You can keep up with tonight's adventure by following me on Twitter.

Because Even 7-Year-Olds Care How They Look In Their Sleep

I don't know how it is at your house, but Santa always brought pajamas for us on Christmas Eve- there's just something about new pjs under the tree. They're just better that way.

I think I heard that St. Nick is shopping at The Children's Place this year... considering you can get the cutest things for all the kids- from baby on up to size 14! And it is a Mother's dream because you can even make them all match. And as much as I thought I'd never do that to my children, well, let's face it- it's fun.

The new pajamas like the Rocket Pj Set for only $16.50 are my boys' favorite. I love sleepwear in separates and how they feel. My kids love the cool patterns and hip style.

I'd like for you to stop into The Children's Place and do a little shopping with a $30 gift card I'm giving away here. Just leave a comment letting me know your favorite Children's Place sleepwear item and I'll choose one person at random this Friday 12 pm CST. That way hopefully you can get it in time for your holiday gift giving!

One entry per person and US entries only.

Contest has ended. Congrats to Irishmama at Adventures In Multi-Tasking!
