And the winner is...(also concert review)

Number 23: Diana! I will be contacting you shortly.

For everyone else, you can still order your own custom embroidered apron and get a 10% discount by entering the code Mrs. Organic at checkout. That's a darn cute apron with your name on it, even, for under $20. That's a steal!

In other news, we took Ty to his first concert tonight to see The Lower Lights. It was awesome. I was nervous to bring him because the facility didn't look exactly wheelchair friendly. And this is why I love Twitter.

I tweeted wondering if anyone knew if the Post Theatre was wheelchair accessible because all I could see were 10 steps leading into the entrance. The band tweeted back to me that they thought it was but if not, they would be happy to help lift him up the stairs. When we arrived, they were expecting us and showed us to our special wheelchair seating spot. These are my kind of people. And then there was the music.

This Little Light of Mine from The Lower Lights on Vimeo.

Lovely, lovely music. I helped Ty to clap along to the beat. He only got stressed out (noisy) a couple of times and we just wheeled him into the foyer until it passed. They closed with his very favorite song, This Little Light of Mine. He absolutely loved it. CJane was there and I really wished they had asked her to jump up on stage and sing it with them -I love how she puts her whole heart into her singing. Afterwards I chased Mindy down and she graciously posed for a photo with Ty.

(Sidenote: He has a whopping crush on her voice and sings out whenever she's singing lead)

This is such a happy, peaceful, feel-good album you will want one for your own family. I'm really hoping they plan to come out with a Christmas CD. Below are a few sample tracks and here is a link to purchase your own copy. You will wear out your iPod with playing it, I promise.

P.S. A link to Mindy's site

When you were talking about Lower Lights, for some reason I was thinking about Temple Square lights or something.
Shows what I know.
I'm loving this Elders of Israel song.
Is this mission friendly music? (Starting to shop for my folks...)

That is so great that you were able to take him and that the band was so accommodating!

Perhaps Twitter isn't 100% evil afterall ;)
