Can you say .... N E L L Y ? !

See that hottie over there? On Saturday night, I am going to be breathing the same air as him ... seeing him perform LIVE ... shaking my tiny butt (no apple bottom here) all night long! And my friend Tammy will be there to witness the whole thing :)


Woo Hoo! I won, I won, I won! After calling - and hearing lots of busy
tones - for the past three weeks, today I was caller 25. And I have the very distinct pleasure of seeing my boy, Nelly, next Saturday at the 92.5 House Party! I sounded like a very excited teenage girl on the radio, and the DJ thought I was hilarious ... when I get excited, I get funny :) To say I am excited would be a complete understatement. I mean, seriously, if you know me at all, you know that I am slightly obsessed with this hip-hop artist ... partly because "I'm from the 'Lou and I'm proud!" but also because I find his music delightful (doubt anyone else has ever used that word to describe Nelly's songs). I know it's not typical music for the 30+ SAHM-crowd but I just can't resist, and I am not even going to try! This mama likes to shake it :)


I also have to give serious props to my darling husband. He called all day - every hour - on Thursday and Friday. And he even went to a local mall parking lot after work on Friday to try to "Spin-and-Win" me a pair of tickets. All because he knows how much this means to me ... isn't he the sweetest? (I tried to get CPV to pose for a photo like Nelly's - thought that would be a nice addition to this post - but he declined ... something about not wanting to make Nelly look weak!)

With Nelly tickets hanging in the balance I never doubted for a second you'd be a winner. Persistence pays off! And let me throw out a big WOO HOO!
