It’s off to Vegas baby!

I’m leaving in the morning and going to Vegas!  I’m excited.  I just talked to Aaron and he was excited to be in Las Vegas.  They had a great road trip getting there and are excited about the Billboard/Chevy competition at the Fremont Street Experience.  They’ve been treated like rock stars and are loving the road trip.  They played a set in the Mohave desert earlier today and a house show in San Francisco on Saturday.  The film crew that has been with them has been great too.  I’m excited to see him tomorrow and hear more about the adventures.  He said Las Vegas is bigger than life!  What a great experience.

If they win this next competition against 5 other bands, they will have the opportunity to perform at the Billboard music awards on Sunday and be broadcast live on ABC. This momma is pleased!

Here is a video of the band getting ready for the trip.

This is a from the photo shoot for Chevy at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles. It will be in the May 14th issue of Billboard magazine.

Zipper pouch

Mom bought some new sunglasses recently but they are bowed and didn’t fit into any of her glasses cases.  She also wanted to be able to keep them in her purse so she had them when she needs them.  So… for her birthday she got this fun little zipper pouch.  It’s bright enough that she should be able to find it easily in her purse and it’s lined with a black and white print so she should easily be able to see them inside as well.  This was fun to do and I think it turned out very cute.

A special day..

Yesterday was my mothers birthday.  She was 84 and is doing well.  Although it was not a lovely spring day in the northwest we had a lovely lunch at a local waterfront restaurant.  Good times had by all.  Today is a cleaning, laundry and some sewing day.  Tomorrow some of the kids will be here to help me celebrate Mother’s Day.  It will be a good weekend.
