A few pics to start the weekend off right...

So Madonna was in town last night and my bff Bridget had an extra ticket.. our other bff, Beth, (that was going with her) got ill, so I was on the list.. LOL.. AND... it was Elle's dance night, so.......... I took her dance (am I dumb or what?). I mean this girl can ROCK it like Madonna - so I am sure watching her on the t.v. outside her dance room was like being at the QUEEN'S concert, right?:(

I never posted pics of the kids from Halloween - so here you go - a before shot.. and some AFTER.

Alright there you have it. Enjoy your weekend. We will re-cap our POTM runs from this weekend on Monday.

Get out there and RUN IT people.

Any runs this weekend? Do you believe in Aliens? Are you still in a candy striken coma?


  1. Wow, you passed up Madonna for Elle? What a lucky little girl you have!

  2. A friend was telling us last night that she saw Madonna in New Orleans this past weekend and was very disappointed, so you chose correctly! lol Plus you have the cutest babies, I don't blame you for picking them over weirdo Madonna lol

  3. Ok, dance class questions... Leah is turning 3 and I want to enroll her!! daycare has a dance instructor come every tuesday for a 45 minute class, 50 dollars a month. they do have a recital in June... Or should I look into dance class at a dance company in the evenings? There is Dance Art right next door to daycare, not sure of the price, but what is reasonable? Maybe do that later if she likes it during daycare alot? Start off with this first year at school where she is comfortable? Im not sure what to do!! Advice please!

  4. Now, that's a great mom to pass up Madonna!! haha :)
    That second picture is absolutely gorgeous of you two!

  5. Mel, you really are the best. THanks for taking the time to answer my questions....and THANK YOU for your super duper amazingly nice words. We certainly are BIF's ;) <3

  6. Rocky Road all they way!! yum yum ... Am I the only one who seriously cannot stand Madonna? (don't hurt me!) ... I have never liked her - so props to you for being yet again, the best mom ever =) Have fun tomorrow! can't wait to see pics =)

  7. I probably would have skipped Madonna too - she hasn't been starting her shows until at least 10pm - that's too late for me!

  8. I went to Madonna here in Seattle and the show started 3 hours late and really wasn't that great! Good choice mama!

  9. I am so bad about Mommy Guilt. I think when you work it is going to happen. Some co-workers went to Madonna last night, and they said it was just OK. I am glad that I passed on her, because then I had $$ to see Paul McCartney. He's in town next weekend. Can't wait!!

  10. I am sure Elle was every bit as awesome as Madonna! I am not still in a sugar coma. I am suffering withdrawls though!

  11. oh yah i had a margarita last night too it was yummy!! happy hour sometimes makes for a good dinner with the hubby :-)
