Wake me up Before you Go Go

What do all of these songs have in common? Only that they are all from one of the greatest decades of music that ever existed. And me being the lucky girl that I am had the joy of hearing them all performed live by the most amazing 80's cover band ever, The Legwarmers.

Words cannot describe the music, dancing, legwarmers, bangs, and bright colors that made this night one of the greatest thus far in my life. So I'll just stop writing and post some photos. Sigh, it was a dream come true.

Oh, but I do just need to say that the lead guitarist/vocalist, "Cru" and I had a serious flirtation going on during the concert (I may have been pressed right up against the stage) and I actually met him after the concert!!! To quote a great movie that I'm watching right now "I was star struck" (anyone?)

Christmas, New Year's Eve and the Snowpocalypse!!

I'm stuck inside and have been for more hours than I care to think about. This is courtesy of the craziest set of winter storms that the Washington DC area has ever seen...or at least that any one who is alive can remember. Snow fall records have been broken right and left. All of this has resulted in me working from home for several days and spending a lot of quality time with my roommate Christina. Our most recent endeavor to keep ourselves from going crazy was an impromptu dance party. It started at the end of Step Up 2 and we just had to keep going. Here are some photos to show all the fun we have had. Shoveling up a storm and baking delicious things. Baked French toast, cinnamon rolls, and tortilla soup. We figured if we were going to be confined to the house at least we would be well fed. :)

So here are some photos of my Christmas break, which was wonderful. This first one is the family acting out the nativity, a Christmas Eve tradition. It doesn't get any better than Parker "Joseph" pulling Bryson "the donkey" by the hair while Shandi "Mary" is about to fall off his back. Except for little Tyler "a wise man" yelling at the other shepherds and wise men when they stole his "golden" from his little box he was carrying. Adorable.

We wanted to get out of town for New Years so we decided to head down to Charleston, SC. It was delightful.

Going out to dinner in DC for restaurant week with the girls.
The snow boots Christina finally invested in...a little too late. But they sure are cute.
Shannon's truck.
Trying to clean all the snow off my car.

Van Dorn...a street that usually has hundreds of cars going up and down at any given time.
