It's June 3rd folks...which means that it is non-other than Jason Halbert's BIRTHDAY! We did a blog last year with pics & we decided to do it again this year. We have the pleasure of working alongside him & this last year has proved yet again why we are so thankful for him! He is our fearless musical leader on the road, a great friend, kick-A running buddy & an example of a fabulous husband and father. Also, he is always inspiring us to take pictures to document our many travels so we decided to put together a collection of those from the last 12 months. We are so happy to know him, laugh with him and j&k are looking forward to seeing what awesome things are in store for JH this year.

Things I Like (February 23)

"F-R-I-E-N-D-S." It's now on Nick@Nite...what's not to love about that? Flip-Flops. We have been in Florida for the past week and I've been able to wear flip-flops daily. It's like a dream. If I could wear flip-flops every day for the rest of my life, I would. They are far superior to shoes...in my opinion.

The show "An Idiot Abroad." It's our favorite show to watch on the bus on this tour. It is AWESOME. If you need a new show to watch, check it out. I think you'll be glad you did.

Pinterest. Why was I so late to the party on this? It's brilliant and addicting and inspiring. What's not to like?

This hilarious skit from SNL last week:

Those are the things I like this week.

Peace!

One Last Thing...

So again...we are borrowing the idea from PEOPLE magazine & their "One Last Thing" fun. Joe Jonas...you and your perfectly manicured eyebrows are just precious...now we will take a stab at your survey. Here it goes.

Last Celebrity Crush....

Jill: Ben Affleck. He's a Boston boy...need I say more?

Kate: I had a momentary SNL crush on Andy Samberg. All those SNL boys are so nice &  funny. But it would never work out...I think I'd want to one-up him with my jokes...cause I'm very funny. Haha. See?

Last Album I Bought...

Jill: Jack's Mannequin...I bought a bunch of their older albums on an iTunes shopping spree.

Kate: Ben Howard's album "Every Kingdom." He has such a cool voice. "Gracious" and "Promise" are some of my favorites so far.

Last Gift I Gave...

Jill: A massage. No...I didn't actually "give" someone a massage...I gave my friend a gift certificate "for" a massage.

Kate: My brother's birthday present...an Xbox game. Some game where I'm sure there is violence and blowing things up...therefore I'm participating in the general chaos of the pre-teen generation.

Last Time I Apologized...

Jill: Two minutes ago. Don't ask.

Kate: Two minutes ago. Really...don't ask :)

(We bicker like sisters, okay? Deal with it.)

Last Coupon I Used...

Jill: A coupon for a free oil change. Boo-yeah!

Kate: Hmmm....coupon...I don't think I've used a coupon since 1998. Haha. I probably have I just can't remember it. Hahahahha.

Well wasn't that fun!!!

Random Pics From The Start 'O 2012.

Here are a few pictures from the last week or so.

Kate warming her hands over a toaster at rehearsals. Inventive, yes?

No caption necessary. <3

Jill's guitar rack at rehearsals.

From the sky.

Cold rehearsals in New Orleans. Brrr!

"No Errors" on the treadmill screen. Is that a word of encouragement or a threat?

SNL day!!

Group shot right before we went on live!

Kate's ear pack had Eminem's name on the back......pretty kick A.

30 Rockefeller Plaza!

Thanks.

Friends...thank you for all of your kind and supportive words from my last post. It means the world to me to read all of your comments of encouragement :) Y'all are the best. Honestly, I was blown away by the number of comments of people having had similar situations or know someone that has had something similar happen. I'm glad I wrote about it--cause I honestly hope that someone reads it and will tell a friend about it. Only together can we help prevent this from becoming an even more common occurrence. It's Saturday and we get to head to NYC to perform with Kelly on Saturday Night Live tonight so tune in if you feel so inclined!

Happy Saturday.

kate and jill too :)
