Barenaked Fun

Shawn and I went to the Barenaked Ladies concert last night. They are my favorite group, hands-down, no contest, without a doubt. The last time we saw Barenaked Ladies in concert was 2 1/2 years ago (which, in married with children time, is a long time, considering I wasn't even pregnant with Clare yet), so I was in need of a fix. Without boring all you non-fans with the details of the concert, let's just say it was fabulous. Shawn and I had a great time. We got spur-of-the-moment tickets and still ended up with good seats. It's been a while since we've had a date night, and especially since we've done something other than go out to dinner. Our anniversary is in three weeks, but Shawn will be in Houston over it, so this was an early anniversary present. Shawn's mom spent the night to stay with Jamie and Clare, so they got a treat, too, having Mimi around. Even though I am now functioning on very little sleep (it's been a long time since this mommy has been up until midnight), last night was awesome.

And speaking of seeing barenaked people, we had our ultrasound this afternoon. We brought our entourage since Jamie, Clare, and Shawn's mom came with us to see Jelly Bean do his/her dance on the screen. It's still very early, but everything looked good so far and the baby's measurements are right on track with my due date in May. Six months and counting!
