Love Lyle!

As I mentioned before, Nate got me Lyle Lovett tickets for my birthday. So, last Saturday night, his parents baby-sat the kidlets, and we went out for a luxurious night on the town. Ok, so not super luxurious, but it felt like it was, because we had NO KIDS with us. Oh man, dinner, was seriously heavenly. We got up to Salt Lake 2 hours early, and went to this yummy Greek restaurant (normally, I loathe greek food, but this was a really nice classy place, and I looked at the menu and saw that they had salmon, and figured they couldn't make that too greasy, like they do with all their food), called Artisto (or something like that). We sat outside in the shade, and it was just perfect. After we finished eating, we seriously just sat there for 30 minutes or so, and relaxed, and actually got to talk. It was so nice... and fun! Then we started walking up the street to Kingsbury Hall, and Nate informed me that I was walking too fast, as we had plenty of time, and he really wanted to relish in the fact that we, for once, weren't running late.

We had really good seats at the front of the balcony, and the show was AMAZING. I seriously LOVED it. I knew I would enjoy it, but I didn't know that I wouldn't want the music to stop. I've decided what kind of music Lyle Lovett plays. He's on a country label, but he is so not country. I think it's bluegrass, just with more of a bluesy/soul feel to it. He had this enormous band, and gospel singers, and there was just tons of energy, and Lyle himself is quite the character. So yeah, LOVED it. LOVE Lyle!

**Another bonus of this night out, is that Chris (Nate's dad) put Sayer to bed, and in doing so, introduced an awesome way to swaddle, that is seriously unbreakable. I will take pictures of it for all to benefit from, so look for that in the next day or so!

Who the heck is Lyle Lovett? I was getting my haircut last weekend and the ladies in the place where talking about him cause he was up here at Targhee and one of the ladies had made a meal that he had requested, I have no idea why.anyway I asked Josh whe he is and the only thing he knew was that he was married to Julia Roberts for a while.

michelle, he's just a singer. he's kind of old, and was popular in the 80s i think, but am not positive. i am married to nate, so i know of all these obscure singers and bands.

Wow I can't believe that girl doesn't know Lyle Lovett!! I lived in Austin Texas for a year so maybe that is why I think everyone should know him, but he was married to Julia Roberts which is kind of huge.

Anyway, please share this new amazing swaddle. Max always breaks free from his. BTW, how long do you swaddle them for sleep? I mean u ntil what age?
