Don’t judge me.

Adele.

 

I should have posted this months ago, but…

 

 

 

I love Adele.

 

Always have.

 

Always will.

 

Have you heard her new album?

 

Epic.

 

Once Jared and I made out to it in my living room (what are we, 15?).

 

Actually… it was my first time listening to it all the way through.

 

Maybe that’s why I love it so much?

 

Anyway, it was hot.

 

(But not too hot, mom. Promise)

 

Funny, cause not that I think of it, most of the songs are about lost love and heartache.

 

Meh, whatev.

 

Check out this video.

 

So simple and artsy.

 

 

 

 

P.S. I’m looking for a new roommate. Anyone? Bueler?

I won tickets in the Mormon Lottery (AKA the drawing for Mormon Tabernacle Chior Christmas concert tickets). They were for the Sunday morning Music and the Spoken word show, so last Sunday morning my mom, dad, brother Mike and I headed down to SLC in the early morning hours. We heard we should be early so our seats wouldn’t be given away so… early we were. Early enough, in fact, to stand outside for almost an hour. In the pouring rain. Good thing I was a girl scout (that was a lie) and came prepared with an umbrella. One. Umbrella. My mom, dad, brother Mike and I huddled under my one umbrella and tried to stay as dry as four adults could possibly stay under one umbrella. Oh, and did I mention I was super sick? I sounded like a frog-man hybrid. I don’t know why I just told you that, but I did. So there we were huddling and laughing and trying to keep our spirits up when I got a brilliant idea. I whipped out my phone and downloaded “Umbrella” by Rhiana and began to play it. Without hesitation… my mom, dad and brother Mike and I all started dancing. Under my one umbrella. Early Sunday morning. Waiting in line for the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert.

I love my family.

This is a really bad cell phone pic of the moment.

I wanted to post the music video for that song, but Rhiana is wearing nothing but silver paint for half of the video and I figured that wouldn’t be appropriate for my family friendly blog. So… you get the Singin’ in the Rain/Umbrella Glee mix instead. Still awesome.

Also, might I add:

 This year the guest performers were David Archuleta and Michael York. Awes! The concert was simply amazing. Breath taking. Spectacular. I loved it. D. Archie sang the most incredibly beautiful rendition of Silent Night I have ever, in my 27 years, been blessed to hear. I can’t wait for the album to come out next Christmas so I can listen to it over and over again.

Aub and I have had extensive discussions about OkGo’s videos. WHY ARE THEY NOT WINNING VMA’s, people?!?!

Seriously.

Is it because they don’t exploit women, or spend millions of dollars on special effects or post-production editing?

Where are the awards for genius creativity and originality?

Check out the video for End Love. Epic.

And let us not forget This Too Shall Pass, Do What You Want and the classic Here it Goes Again.

Pure entertainment.

I’m just sayin’.

Loving this song.

After the Storm, by Mumford & Sons

And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won’t rot, I won’t rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won’t rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That’s why I hold,
That’s why I hold with all I have.
That’s why I hold.

I will die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I’ll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and mine so small.
Well I’m scared of what’s behind and what’s before.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.
