Okay I got a text from DanaLee on Monday or Tuesday inviting me to her birthday celebration. The info read:
Mama Mia Sing Along
Thursday, Sept. 18 @ 7:20pm
Dress in 70's attire
I will admit my first reaction was sounds fun but I don't know. Not that I don't love spending time with Dana, it was just me thinking can I do this with a straight face. Well, Thursday came and I made a stop at DI for some 70's attire. I will admit my options weren't great! I was able to find this lovely number that seemed to fit around my 15 weeks prego belly. I didn't say that it looked lovely I said it would work. I did my best to Farrah-ize my hair, which wasn't a complete success but it will do. I thru on my funky red sandals and large black shades and headed out. I was so worried that I was going to show up first and be standing there wondering what others were going to think of me. I called Dana like 3 times asking her where to meet and where she was parking so I wouldn't have to walk by myself. I know, I promise I am not usually this self-conscious, but put yourself in my shoes...the 70's look (at least not the one I was wearing) isn't quite considered in style! I was able to meet up with her quickly. We went to the theater and there were only about 20-30 people there tops. I had to laugh. I had never seen the movie. Right off the bat, I started to laugh!!! The words poppped up on the screen, words highlighted to know when we were supposed to sing them. All that was missing was the bouncing ball. It took awhile for me and most of the others in the theater to get into it...by the end we were all singing some using very random, off-key voices on purpose, other's bless their hearts! By the end of the movie many folks were in the main isle dancing and singing their hearts out. This was my que to take photos. I didn't want to dance the self-consciousness kicked right back in. It was a lot of fun! I am glad I went not only to spend time with Dana on her b-day but also it was good to get out and let loose! Well sort of!
Here I am heading out the door, Liberty snapped this pic for my posterity!!! I don't want to think of what my great-grandchildren are going to think of this.
Here is cute Dana dancing with some guy in the theater who found out it was her b-day! Doesn't she looks so cute. I wish you could see the blue eyeshadow...it made the whole outfit complete. So much fun!
I will say on a side note: Peirce Brosnon really shouldn't sing, I think this could ruin his reputation at least in my eyes. I screamed outloud when he started to scream, not because I was excited, more like I was embarassed for him.
