here is my lowdown on grammy overnight 2011.
the way i get to go to the grammy's is not AS fancy as you may think...
i am just the "stay at home mommy" wife of a hardworking, super good at his job guy at verizon wireless.
one of the things verizon does for it's big customers is invite special ones to join them at a great catered box at the grammy's. we are the hosts (and i get to be included in "we" because of marriage).
so, it is really fun and nice.
but still kinda work for my darlin' reedo.
so a tiny bit stressful for me too.
don't get me wrong, i had a great time....it's just not the same as getting your own tickets for a concert and being on your own, ya know?
see in the back of this below picture?
that's the stage.
and right in front is where all the famous people sit....
so i didn't REALLY get close to any one famous.
oh, accept crystal bowersox (spelling?) you know that american idol girl with the dreads?
i almost brushed up against her shoulder....
it was a great show!
i, of course, LOVED mumford and sons.
but i also enjoyed the aretha franklin tribute and muse and barbara and one of the most impressive was mick jagger! he is so tiny! and old! but had the most energy out of any of them!
i am sure you all know....
we all saw it, i just happened to be there.
after the show we went up the special party on top of staples center.
yummy food and my favorite....
an AMAZING "candy bar"
tables and tables of candy and cakes and treats.
reedo and i were so funny grabbing candy necklaces and giant suckers for the kids and putting them in his jacket.
they were also passing out tons of fancy drinks up there.
i had a few and then started talking a lot.
to people i didn't know.
and this girl wanted to be friends with me.
i think we will be friends forever.
it was a funny, good night.
i am glad i went.
i like hanging out with my husband.
and we got to hang out at the grammy's....cool.
