Cranky and underslept,
Brit Brit kicked off the show by descending from the ceiling on a trapeze and singing ‘Circus’. She also sang some of her classics including ‘Boys’, ‘Me Against the Music’ and my forever and ever favorite ‘Baby One More Time’. There were lots of sparklers, pyro, shooting fog, lights and dancing. The sheer spectacle of the whole thing was STUNNING! She popped up from the floor, dropped down from overhead and, once, even hopped on a suspended human platform made from two interlocked contortionists [sp?]and rode it up to the rafters!
AWESOME. AMAZING. UNBELIEVABLE.

EDITED TO ADD: I also took a few videos from the concert that I will post for you tonight. So stay tuned.
I can't do that again... From now on, if there's a dog on the front of the movie with a big cute doggy grin on its face, I'm going to follow to instincts and head towards the movie with the man with a gun on the poster (big explosions...less tears).
Hubs and I just saw Marley and Me, and despite my gut telling me to stay faaaar away unless I wanted to be hurt, we still rented it. 2 hours later, I cried more for that dog than I have for any human person (in my defense, it's not like I've known anyone who has died...)
And whenever my mind wonders to 'that scene' I'm still nearly crying, even as I write this review. I loved the movie. Don't get me wrong. You will laugh and cry and never forget it. This movie is a masterpiece of real life. Marley and Me dealt with married life in a surprisingly realistic way with some of the funniest moments of dog humour that the previews promised. At the same time, never have I seen a movie before where my heart was torn out of my chest like that. For those of you who haven't seen it just know what you're getting yourself into. And although I knew exactly what was going to happen, I spent the last 20 minutes of the film just waiting and mentally preparing myself...and still I sobbed so hard, I could barely catch my breath.
Edited to Add: On a happier note, Britney pictures & reviews coming tomorrow! My camera is completely dead, so I have to wait for the battery to charge to download the pics. Overall, the concert was AMAZINGGGGG! [I have three very painful blisters to prove it]. Ms. Spears rocks!
Spotlight on me and I’m ready to break
I’m like a performer, the dancefloor is my stage
Better be ready, hope that ya feel the same.

That's all I have for today. Happy Wednesday everyone! :)
Literally. He has been counting down the days until March Madness for over two months now.
Not kiddin'. He is even getting out of work early today and tomorrow so that he doesn't have to miss any
drunken stupor fun games.
He also plans to host his work friends this weekend. I have to admit I am excited to to have them here and so I volunteered to get them
a keg and some freshamn girls beer, pizza, chips + dip, and other miscellaneous masculine foods.
After that, my plan of attack is to try to stay out of their way and let them do whatever. With that said, I will do anything to get out of the house. Anyone want to hang out with me? Please? :)
Edited to ADD: Today was the third day I have done the 30-day shred and I am already seeing results![my husband even commented on how great my legs and tush look]. I have been sore and in pain every day, but that just goes to show that this really works. No pain, no gain. I highly recommend this for anyone who is serious about getting in shape, hates spending hours in the gym and needs pragmatic no nonsense, just do what needs to be done, outlook on fitness. I will continue to post amended posts to update my progress. Best of Luck to everyone. Buy the DVD its worth it.
So for those of us who are
professionals old geezers and cannot celebrate St. Patty's day on a weekday, we had to resort to celebrating on Saturday. Thankfully, there are A LOT of people out there who prefer to be hangover-free Wednesday :)
Here are a few pictures from our St. Patrick's day shenanigans. We went to a local Irish bar that had a big tent set up outside and 10 live bands performing on two different stages. We got there pretty early [hence my sleepy eyes] but ended up staying all day. We finally cought a cab home around 11 p.m. We spent all day Sunday recovering, but it was well worth it!
Have a Great Weekend! Any plans?!
P.s. Big THANKS to Miss Lemonade for giving me this cute blog award! You're fab! :)
