I also didn't expect that I wouldn't be able to feel my feet and sneezing would cause permanent nerve damage. Why don't these things come with warning labels?
This post isn't really about spanx. Wearing that contraption was just a small part of my transformation yesterday. It's not a coïncidence that I chose a nail polish called Fishnet Stockings either. I had a feeling that something wondrous was going to happen to me and I had to look the part.
The party was inside a large hanger at the Wings Over The Rockies Airplane Museum. There were airplanes and jets surrounding us and it made for a bit of an eerie atmosphere. It was a very unique place to have a cocktail party with a live band!
Soon after we arrived, Keith's boss found me and told me that he had shared the whole story with Ian. I asked if I should be worried and if there was added security because of me. He said, no and that he was going to bring Ian over to meet me.
He hugged me after Dan introduced us and I felt weak in the knees! We talked for a while about his music and how he and Chad came to decide to form a group together. I told him what his music means to me and that my kids love it and sing his songs all the time.
I was so excited when they started to play for the group! I stood right in the front and sang along. And I danced. I danced like no one was watching and I was the only one in the room. For this short amount of time, I wasn't someone's mom....I was a groupie and I enjoyed every moment!
They announced the next song was the last one and they asked me to come sing with them. This was the moment when I was thankful that I hadn't thrown my spanx on the stage because how awkward would THAT have been? Plus...someone would have had to cut me out of them.
I took my spot next to Chad and he asked me if I could sing. I told him I sing a little in the car and that he should have asked me that before he called me up! I sang. I sang like I didn't know the words and like no one was watching. Keith ran up at the end and joined us! It was such an amazing moment and I'll never forget it.
I know I professed my
Ah ha ha....I was born to be a rockstar!
I woke up this morning with memories of a great evening and so happy to be back to my regular life. It's a great life and my kids think it's pretty cool that their Mom sang with Ian and Chad.
