Fantastic weekend and special day today!

Guess who Mike and I saw this past weekend?

Oh, hell, yeah!  We took a little trip down to Phoenix and took in Louie's 7:00 show on Saturday night at the Celebrity Theater.  He was fantastic--a top-notch professional. They were taping his next HBO special that night, and I marveled at how he was able to deliver his material, negotiate a microphone with a cord, and address the audience in a theater-in-the-round setting.  He didn't miss a beat. What an inspiration.

The weather was gorgeous! During the day on Saturday we just lounged at the pool. It was the first I'd been able to relax in a week, and it was wonderful!  Yesterday we did some hiking in the Cave Creek recreation area north of Phoenix, up near where we stayed.  What a cool place--I love those saguaro cacti.

Look at the size of these things!

This one must have been thinking of Rosie O'Donnell.

What a great time; our Valentine's weekend of love.  Speaking of, I love this passage in the card Mike got for me.

Hahaha! I'm a lucky gal.  And speaking of love, today is a special day for two reasons. First, today is my son's birthday--my Christopher is 35 today.  How can I have a kid who's 35??? That's the only time I ever feel old, when I think of how old my kids are.

Me and my "little" boy, all 6'4" of him!

You know you're old when your kid has gray in his beard, right?

Every mother thinks the world revolves around her son, and I'm no different. Christopher is just the nicest, sweetest person and he always has been.  I love my boy!  Today is also special because it's Mom and Stepdaddy's seventh anniversary.  Don't they look beautiful?

I have another full week ahead of me with family and friends visiting and a good amount of work on my plate (thankfully, not as much as last week).  Also, I'm one of seven finalists in the Put Up or Shut Up comedy contest, so I have that on Tuesday night at 9:00 at Scoundrel's Pub on Decatur. Life is good.  Yep.

I think the thing that impresses me most about Louis CK is that he comes up with a completely new routine every year and completely retires his old bits. Most impressive about this is that he just keeps getting funnier. So many comedians you see them 5 years apart and their act is 80% identical to the last time you saw them.

He's so irreverent and says the most unlikeable things, but does it in a way that you just keep on loving him and rooting for him. If you can't tell he is one of my top 5 favorite comedians.

Louis CK is like an adorable little boy that I can't resist loving. So no matter the outrageous things he says, I still love him to bits. And, he says things that I think all the time but would never I love that he gives us such a honest peek into our humanity.

Wow, what a gorgeous post and what a great looking family. Good genes hey? I cam by to catch up on your blog a couple of weeks agao and meant to come back and leave a comment but life got in the way. I thought of you this mornign when my daughter's friend said she was going to do a standup comedian course - she would be perfect at it - we shall see.

Mike sounds a gorgeous man and i lvoe his card. Honesty, oh that is so important. Your boy is handsome and I love the height difference. My daughter and I are the other way round, I am 5 9" and she is 5 3". And she has grey in her hair too. so I know what you mean about feeling old. Well I should but I dont really.

So glad life is treating you well and you it. Fingers crossed for the comedy contest. Put up or shut up - love it! You really are an inspiration for anyone. Will there be any footage of it I wonder? I may have the chance to come to LA for a work type thing in the coming months so I would love to catch you on stage or off for that matter, lol. It would be fantastic.
