Where did the weekend go?

Was that a blur of a weekend or what? I don't remember doing much of anything except coming home Friday, taking some meds for a headache and then realizing yesterday that it was Sunday! I'm sure there was something in between but damned if I can remember any of it. I hate those kinds of weekends.
The last week of April. Unbelievable. May is a busy month for us all the way around. The DH's birthday is at the end of the month and I got tickets for the Reds/Padres game. The oldest son, the daughter and the youngest son (along with our bestest buddy Matt) will be attending. I am debating about whether to rent a limo for the ride down there. Beer at the stadium is so expensive and with five drinking adults of the six going, it seems like a good idea... But man, are they expensive and with the price of gasoline - whew! Will wait and see how the month goes.
We are putting new countertops, sink and faucet in the kitchen. We decided on granite - for both counters and sink. If you haven't seen the granite sinks at Lowes or HD, you should. I was thinking I would go with the traditional cast iron in a color, but after seeing the black granite sink my mind was made up. Check it out!
I love it - not sure why! Maybe because it is so different. I am still deciding on the faucet itself...although I am leaning towards this style:

Yeah - black on black. Well, the faucet is actually called Venetian Bronze. I think I am going for such a bold look because right now my countertops are white and I have the shiney faucet. I am so sick of both! Now I just have to choose the granite! That's the toughest decision, I think...

Saturday night 9-10 I was able to catch Daughtry on PBS's Soundstage. Awesome. I have to see him live, but I really prefer a small venue and not some huge stadium. I might be too late for that considering how popular he is now.
