She's Just Being Miley...

Our Gracie turned 7 in December, and as an early birthday present/reward for her exceptional performance in the 1st Grade, I took her to see the Miley Cyrus concert. Gracie reminded me this week that I had never put those pictures up on my blog.... so here they are.

I knew that this being the "Miley Cyrus Tour" we could except more Miley versus her "Hannah" alter ego from the TV show. I debated a while before getting the tickets since "Miley" gets mixed reviews from parents... but I ultimately decided that with the tour being sponsored by Wal-Mart that Miley would probably be on good behavior and that Gracie would enjoy it and see it as a real treat - and of course, she did.

I'd sum up the show by saying that Gracie loved it, and I thought it was okay - but unfortunately a bit more "Brittany Spears" than I would have hoped for. But, I was relieved to see that Miley kept her chest covered, although she was very proud to show off her legs.... HA!

You may think I'm terrible, but I specifically didn't get Tessa a ticket because I just decided at 4 years old, she would just fidget and not sit still for the show, plus she hardly knew who Miley was, and therefore wouldn't enjoy the show $40 bucks worth regardless, and based on what I saw - I was right. I was floored by the number of parents who took (and paid a minimum of $40 a ticket) for 4 and 5 year old little girls to attend the show who cried, had to be held, or slept the whole time. It was crazy...

The arena was offering several "activities" to pass the time before the show started. Gracie was very excited about her free digital picture of her and Miley together....

After the 45 minute wait for the picture, a $3.00 drink, a $10 glow stick, and a $35 t-shirt... we made it to our seats... Gracie was completely annoyed (as was the entire audience) with the opening act (who was Miley's sort of scary older brother and his band). But finally, after we arrived at 6:00, Miley took the stage at 8:30.

Luckily she did a little "Hoe Down/Thrown Down" which is Gracie's favorite... and of course, finally she whipped out Party In the USA... Gracie danced and waved her glow stick like a concert regular! HA! She got a bit annoyed with my picture taking...

So that was Miley... and Gracie certainly has gotten the $35 out of that t-shirt, as she wears it to school at least once a week!

But anyway... moving on... I had "weigh-in Wednesday" this week, and I was at 162! WOO HOO!

And I started watching the Biggest Loser of course, and this looks like it's going to be an interesting season. However, as usual, they have annoyed me right off the bat in that I thought the public weigh-in was HORRIBLE! I realize it's a "show" and they want to keep stuff new, but how awful... and totally unnecessary in my opinion.

Furthermore, then to put everyone through the pubic weigh-in, bring'em to the ranch, and not even let them unpack before sending two teams home... seriously? That's just wrong! I don't care if Bob and Jillian jumped out with the good news that there still was some hope... it was just MEAN!

I think the married couple will be interesting to watch... and so far my favorite is the biggest guy who is there with his mom (I can't remember his name), and the other mother/son team with the kid with the curly hair.

And... I am following along and participating in the "shredding" extravaganza... Amber is also doing this and has a blog group who is working at it as well. I'll have to blog more about my shredding experience soon. It's hard! I took some "before" pics (but will have to wait to share until there are "after" pics to distract you...HA!) Amber is already working on level 2! I think I'll stick with level 1 for 30 days... and go from there. I can't get all the way through it yet without stopping as it is!
