And it's my birthday.
I'll be 35 (and it's my mom's birthday too!).
Mr. Lovebird and I really wanted to return to Las Vegas next weekend for Life is Beautiful (the line-up is just WOW!), but we were torn between bringing the kids with us and getting childcare there or having childcare here in New Hampshire, however it just wouldn't seem cool to bring the kids only to pawn them off and if they stayed behind I just couldn't fathom the distance especially since Grayson is still quite small.
|Our "Plan B" Hotel was great!|
My mind was blown!
The first performers were the Temptations Review - they were outstanding and in great shape for some of them being in their 70s. Next, it was the Commodores, really *a* Commodore, since there was only 1 original member performing plus another who had joined later.
In between the acts there were 20 minute intermissions so by the time the 3rd act was about to come on 2 hours had passed. I was having fun, but at 10p.m., yes, I was yawning. I have absolutely no late night stamina any more
Well all the sudden after the 2nd intermission the music got ridiculously loud like someone extra special was about to come on. I had no clue who it was, due to my quick glancing of the original event listing. Apparently, Mr. Lovebird was surprised too cause when the montage on the screens started rolling and we saw footage of The Jackson Five, we looked at each other in disbelief.
|Jermaine was the lead and of course I couldn't help but think of this post whenever the camera zoomed in on him|
Check them out:
They performed so many classics (and opened with Can You Feel It - my FAVE!) and a couple of MJ's songs. I could tell that they really do try to channel him as much as possible in their performances, but they hold their own. My mom tells the story of how I met Tito (or was it Jermaine?) when I was a kid. I totally don't remember it but for some
Tomorrow, my actual birthday, Mr. Lovebird is away on business, so I'll probably just lay low with the kids (and we have soccer practice!), but today is actually another big day for me. Here's a little hint. Follow along on Instagram for more!
